Low end tablet for toddler?

My 6 year old is getting a Kindle Fire HDX for Christmas and her little sister will surely want one as well. She is 2, turns 3 on Feb 1, and she is mature for her age. She can operate a cell phone or an ipad just fine, but she had toddler rage and can be destructive. She isn't getting a Kindle.

I'm thinking Innotab 3S or a LeapPad Ultra.

Thoughts? What does your toddler/reschooler have? The Innotab says 3+ and the LeapPad says 4+ so I'm leaning towards the Innotab... 

(and before people bitch, we live right by the park, play outside daily, and both kids have bikes and are super active. You cannot ride your bike or play in the park on a road trip though)

I'd say leap since she has an older sis. Probably a bit advanced.

What about a Nobi? I believe that's how you spell it. Nabi? I forget. But the little girl I watch has one and its very "toddler like."

We got out kids nabi's they have the jr which is cheaper and smaller but I'd go ahead and get the nabi 2 for anyone over 2 or 3. It can run the jr interface and it's pretty tough.

The tabeo is n sale at toys r us right now. Regularly its 150....but right now its 129 but you get a 20 dollar gift card with purchase. So that makes it 109.
Sweet deal.

Just buy a normal Tablet- it works just as well and it's cheaper!

I would go with the Innotab for your toddler and then upgrade when she out grows it.
