I found it just the other way - as younger they are as less
exact high res and high reality visions they need. An 5 year
old child is satisfied when drawing a car or a house just by
using big blocks and symbols (PET), while a 14 year old don't
even look at a 280x192 display.

A young child has more free flowing imagination - and less
need for exact replication.
