iPad: This Season's Hottest Kids Toy?

Posted on Tuesday, November 23 @ 13:21:19 Eastern by

Analysts are estimating that Apple's iPad will sell an astounding 13-16 million units before the end of 2010. That's quite a feat considering it only launched this past April. And why wouldn't it sell well? It's brimming with tech, simple-to-use and is an indicator of status of sorts, especially for the executive crowd. Despite its appeal with adults, children may be largely to thank for meeting those massive sales expectations.

According to recent data released by Nielsen, kids put iPad higher on their holiday wish-list than any other consumer electronic, including video game consoles. The survey results of a recent poll consisting of 6-12 year olds, 31% of them are planning on purchasing an iPad in the next 6 months.

Since these "kids" can't purchase an iPad themselves (unless you know of any high-rolling 6th graders), they're likely banking on their parents to buy them one for the holidays. Poor parents... Or should I say rich parents, with snotty kids that don't know the value of the dollar?
