Tablet Advice

So my 8 year old daughter wants an I-pad for Christmas but she is 8 so she is not getting one. I would however like to get her a tablet in the $200 range if there is one that is good that would be easy to use and somewhat durable. She uses my iphone constantly downloading apps and watching youtube videos and such. That is really all that I would need the tablet to do, but would like something that if it lasts, she can continue to use as she gets older.

Was thinking about the Nexus 7 but I honestly don't know sh*t about them. What tablet would work similar to what she is using my iphone for and would be the best bang for the buck?

Thanks in advance for the help and the most helpful post will win absolutely nothing.

I don't know much about the Kindle Fire....isn't that just for reading ebooks mostly or will it also do the stuff that I mentioned?

Kindle Fire.

Friend picked up one for himself a bit ago. It's now in sole possession of his 4 and 6 year old girls.

you can get the "old" kindle fire (ie last years model) for less than 200 new, I'm sure less than that used. I have one and it would be fine for an 8 year old.

I just got the Kindle Fire for $199 and love it. You can watch movies, surf the internet, play games, read. I've never used anything else so I cant say its better or worse than the others.

Kindle Fire huh? Great....I noticed they have different versions. Is this the one I am looking for?

Thats the new version, which is better than the one that I have. you can't go wrong either way, but the older version is likely cheaper.
