Why should I pay for kids apps?

I’ve been mulling over a blog post on the price of kids apps for a few weeks, but haven’t had a chance to get my thoughts down on paper. Hopefully over the summer, the chance to write a longer post will come. In the meantime, I’ve been thinking along these lines –

A quote:

“Filling your $500 iPad with freebie apps is like setting up a huge fish tank but skimping on the fish.”

Which will last longer…and do you agree with me that it is worth paying for apps?
