I started my daughter out with a cheap Sansa mp3 player 1 mega byte for about $39.00 before moving up to an iPod a year later. It holds hundreds of songs and its cheaper to replace when its lost or stolen or dropped in the toilet if you know what I mean. He/She is 9 years old, they don't need one at all, unless they are HUGE fans of like fall out boy, Avril Lavine, ECT. get them like a toy truck...

Should you buy an ipod touch from walmart or best-buy?

I think you should buy the iPod at best buy. I think that because it has a bigger slection of iPods. If you don't want an iPod you can easily just get another brand of mp3 players. If you are caring about other people you should buy it at best buy because at wallmart they don't provide health insurance (yes they do) for theyre employees and provida low payment (decent, actually). In counclusion I think best buy is better. Addendum. I will improve on this ignorance. Where is it cheaper? Assuming you want an Ipod TOUCH, not an mp3 player, they go for over $200. The 8GB is 229.00 at my walmart. Warantee's can be expensive as well, if you are concerned with protecting your phone.
