I use my iPad as an educational tool for my toddler. She loves it! I just found the best ap for her. You can put your family member's pictures and have them record a message so every time you tap their picture they talk to you! You could do pictures of anything, colors, shapes, etc SO COOL http://itunes.apple.com/us/
iPads or iPhones!
Wanted to share with my fellow cafemoms!
