The Table summarizes key features of traditional toys (eg, a jack in the box), a touch-screen device, and old media. The first feature is reactivity, meaning whether the device can respond to something a child does. The second feature is interactivity, meaning whether the device can prompt reactions from a child based on actions that he or she took. The third feature is tailorability, meaning whether the device can behave differently based on particularities of the child (eg, age and stated preferences). The fourth feature is progressiveness, meaning whether the device can move a child along a continuum such that it begins where he or she last left off, advancing in complexity as understanding deepens. The fifth feature is promotion of joint attention, meaning the device can enable or facilitate adults and children interacting with one another. The sixth feature is portability, that is, how easy is it to transport the device and make it readily available in different venues. And the final feature is 3-dimensionality, namely, can the child engage the device across space by manipulating it with his or her hands. As can be plainly seen, there are many ways in which iPads and traditional toys differ from traditional passive media. Therefore, there is a strong theoretical foundation to posit that the AAP recommendations regarding media for children younger than the age of 2 years should not be applied to these newer media. Lest one take from this Table the idea that iPads are in fact superior to all play devices, it should also be pointed out that the simple act of reading a book to a child has all 7 features.
