We were thinking about leapfrog Leap pad and DH went to Barnes and noble. He is trying to talk me into a nook. I don't think it can take the abuse its cheaper then an Ipad

My two, 3 and 5, love to play with my ipod and tablet. While a nook isn't terribly durable when compared to a leap pad, I think there's some merit to the idea; it's much more versatile, and apps are cheaper. Plus, it has appeal to more than just the kids.

I think the key to successfully using a non-kid device is rules, a good protective cover (rubber/silicone is great) and careful monitoring.
