As the seemingly mandatory Christmas shopping period climaxes, it is interesting to note how early young children adopt new technology. An NPD Funworld survey shows average adoption age dropping more than one year from 2005 to 2007: with portable digital music players (8.8 years old), digital cameras (7.9 years old), CD/DVD players (6.7 years old), and computers (5.5 years old). VTech Holdings Ltm of Hong Kong has introduced the Tote & Go Laptop Plus ($22) so that those 3 and up can imitate their parents without endangering their more expensive technology.
