LeapFrog LeapPad2 Explorer
Why He Wants It: Let's face it, when it comes to learning, books have limitations. For instance, when you touch the pages, they just turn. With the new LeapFrog LeapPad2 Explorer, my son can be read to aloud, record himself and even invoke all kinds of silliness using the front-and-back video cameras. With a library of over 325 games and apps that teach, educate and entertain, it's essentially his first iPad.
Perfect For: Kids aged 3 to 9 who dig games, e-books and touching things they can't break.
