What is a good tablet for a 6 year old?

My daughter is wanting a tablet for Christmas this year.  Yes, I am already thinking about Christmas, especially with three kids to buy for...lol

I have heard that iPads are great, but they are really alot more than I want to pay, especially for a 6 year old (she turns 6 in October,so she will just barely be 6 by Christmas).

I want something that can be used for educational purposes also.  I really know absolutely nothing about the tablets.  She wants one that she can download games to play.  I want one that will help her writing, maybe help teach her music, etc.

I am looking at the leappad.  While I know it is not nearly as good as the "adult" tablets, does anyone think that this would be a good start?  I know that you can use it to help with writing skills.  I believe the new one also teaches some music. 

Thanks.

I was looking at walmart.com for tablets and came across the nabi2 tablet.  It is made for kids.  It has parental control and it has very good reviews.  It is 200.00.  So, I am going to really research this tablet.  It has a lot of games and you can download stuff from the Amazon app store.

This sounds really cool.
