Which IPad would be ok for a toddler?

Hi, we was thinking about getting an ipad for my 3 year old, only to use kids educational games etc and to help with fine movements as she has issues with fine motor movements and thought it may help.

We are looking for one as cheap as possible but that will still be able to play very basic toddler type games and not feel too slow.

After having a little look around myself i thought the Ipad air 2 might be a good buy in terms of still enough power but not overkill.

Would this still be getting updated by apple?

Does anyone think any other model would suit better? I don't want it to be that old that games say they aren't compatible with it because the software it outdated etc, not sure if that would be an issue if anyone can advise please?

Thanks

My son has had an original iPad Air for the last couple of years (he’s just turned four) and it’s just getting to the point that I am thinking of replacing it.

The iPad Air 2 will run ios14 but is likely to be dropped for ios15 later in the year (will still get security updates).
It will certainly do everything you want for at least a couple of years i would think
