This is so wrong in so, so many ways. Like five ways at once.
I know the Little Tikes Young Explorer were just a cubicle, it'd be fine. Ridiculous and depressing, but fine.
This actually has a low-to-middlin', kid-tuned Windows PC built into it; it's more My First Control Panel At The Springfield Nuclear Power Plant than My First Cube. It will literally drain the creativity and will to live from your child's developing brain. Also, it's $2,600.
If you're gonna be insistent about it, give your kid three iPads, a stripped down, c.2005 laptop and Aeron chair, and a refrigerator box, and send the rest to me.
update: Damn you, Gizmodo, can't you just stick to what you're good at: stealing iPhones from bars? This is not a new product, far from it, as Jen points out in the comments. It's just making the gadgetblog rounds, giving everyone a chance to add their own indignant outrage to the pile [ahem.]
If you look even a little more closely at Little Tikes' website, you find references to previous Young Explorers which were joint products with IBM, and targeted at childcare providers, not [necessarily] consumers. They date from the era of 56k dial-up modems, 40Gb hard drives, and Windows XP. In other words, ancient computer history.
