"Obviously the main purpose of this functionality will be for the larger tablets like the Nexus 10 that are likely to be shared by two or more people in a household. Most people aren't going to buy their five-year-old a high-end tablet, but they appreciate that the games and other activities are attractive and a child that age is capable of taking responsibility for treating the device with respect when borrowing it."
*smiles* something for my 1 year old daughter to introduce her to computing devices was my rather paper thin justification for getting the Nexus 7 in the first place. Although there are various toddler friendly apps that attempt to lock out the home screen they don't work too well. Before hand I'd have to break into her fun when she got to gmail or facebook and started entering random stuff. Now she has her own account she can be a bit freer top explore.
