Kids Want Home Theater Gadgets Too

When we think of home theater gadgets, it is the adults that come to mind. However, in this new era where the kids teach their parents how to use the family computer and many kids have their own cell phones and iPods, it is only logical to come to the conclusion that they would migrate to home theater gadgets also.

According to a new study from the Nielson Company (the folks that do those TV ratings), 15% of kids aged 6-12 surveyed indicated that they would be interested in buying a Blu-ray Disc player and 20% would be interested in buying a TV within the next 6 months. Also, in the next group surveyed (Ages 31 and Up), 17% want to buy TV and 16% want to buy a TV.

Although those percentages do not indicate the main gadget interest of a majority of kids, they beat out other popular gadgets. However, the most desirable gadget for both groups was far-and-away, the Apple iPad.

For a look at a summary of the survey results, check out NielsonWire.

A great home theater gadget for kids is the new weemote X. We got one for our four year old son for his birthday and now we are getting another for my 70 year old father in law. It’s super hi-tech but really easy to use. Actually, I like using it myself because I can’t mess up all the settings that my husband has on the big tv.

My son’s friends grab it the minute they come into the house…bit hit.
