Imo, do it steadilly. i am on the side of those who forbid TV and videogames for kids until the age of 8. before that age, they'd better play cognitive games that develop mental and physical reflexes and especially play outside, cauz they'll basically spend a lot of time playing videogames in their rooms once they reach teenagehood.
Honestly, starting from the age of 6 or 7, and once the kid starts to understand what's written in the screen, videogames will become beneficial for him and he will learn pretty much through them.
Give him Vtech tablets, and once you start noticing that they have become pretty easy for him or started to bore him, then let him test new things with your supervision and restricted playtimes (Nintendo software are always the best ones to start with).
