The iPad mini becomes my 9 year old's object of desire

So recently I made the mistake of watching the October Apple event at the dinner table. After the iPad mini was shown off my 9 year old turns to me and says: "I want one, can I have one for Christmas?"

Oh boy... what have I done?

I ended up putting it on our awards for good behaviour and chores, using our star system that I keep track of using Awards.

The "price"? 1500 stars. Working backwards it means each star is worth about 25¢. Not too far off, actually. I'm hoping that she doesn't make it for Christmas, and that it's more like next summer, by which point I can maybe get her to wait until revision 2 comes out...
