How much are you willing to spend on an app for your kids?

We are rolling out a game in the upcoming weeks and are trying to figure out a price point. Needless to say, there are lots of opinions on this

As players, what are you willing to pay for a fun game that your kids will play too?

Shamelessly bumping this up to try to get a few more votes

Per my son request, I will buy it. We don't care about the price. No options can vote.

Beta Tested: 34 apps and games.

Welcome to the forums! This is the "upcoming games" section, witch has nothing to do with what you're talking about, have a super-duper day!

I it's appropriate and the kid wants it, then it doesn't really matter what the price point is (but not way expensive).

I can never say no to my kids. Wait, I don't have any. Just my inner child coming through.

I apologize to anyone who was offended. Since voting in a poll does not keep in on the top page, I thought it alright to bump up once so that I could get a few more folks to vote.

In addition, I chose to put it in this category as it relates to how we will price an upcoming app, although I do see how some might thing it should go elsewhere.

Again, I apologize if anyone was offended. I'm still learning the etiquette for this site.

That's ok, you're a newbie! We're just trying to help. My take is parents have money, most adults don't care if it's 1$ or 2$, the younger the kid is the least likely he will be paying with his own money.
