Seems a bit pricey compared to whats available on Amazon and eBay.

Good spot tho.

Can you point me at something cheaper with a comparable spec - looking for a 6 year olds Christmas present and this came out top in my research.

Don't buy it... These cheap tablets can be a complete disaster. Get the nexus 2012 instead.
