Capable of running over a hundred apps, games and interactive books the LeapPad is a versatile learning tablet. Kids can interact with the tablet’s five-inch screen using either their fingers or the device’s stylus. The tablet also features its own camera, allowing kids to take ether video or still shots. LeapFrog also built the tablet to be durable, which any parent can appreciate.
Bridging the gap between the LeapPad and more high-end devices is the Nabi, an Android tablet for kids. Netflix-ready, the Nabi's 7-inch screen can display video in 1080p. While most kids may not care about that detail, most will enjoy the tablet's ability to let them play popular mobile games, browse the web, and read books. The tablet also features "Mommy Mode", which allows parents to take full advantage of the tablet's features without the device's parental controls.
Amazon's trove of books, music and movies is put to good use with the Kindle Fire. Amazon offers one thousand illustrated children's titles, all of which take advantage of the tablet's 7-inch screen. Parents are sure to be excited by the tablet's price, which, at $200 is less than half the price of the iPad. And that's not too much to ask for a device with as much potential content as this one.
