Is the new mobile tablet for babies worth the hype?

For older kids (2 and up), the music app, coloring app, and interactive storybooks of the Vinci might make fun activities. And it is cool that the Vinci is bomb-proof and made to hold up to a baby's pounding. (Although I couldn't tell from the product's website if the "chewable" handles were also BPA-free.)

You can buy a lot of twinkling, blinking toys for that money — maybe even some that will make your child smarter.
