Learning Tablet We Love: LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer
What it is: This iPad-inspired learning tablet lets your kids take pictures and video, read and draw, download apps and play educational games.
Why we love it: "My 5-year-old loves having his own tech toy -- just like his Dad -- and playing his Cars 2 learning game (which teaches math concepts) and doodling with the Art Studio app. I love the fact that the LeapPad is an awesome travel toy. I can pack this one lightweight, easily portable tablet in my bag and keep him busy for an entire plane ride." –Erika Janes, senior pregnancy and parenting editor, iVillage
