I'm having a tough time deciding between getting my son a leap pad or a tablet for christmas.  There are some tablets (with decent reviews) that don't cost much more than the leap pad.  Any advice?  WWYD?

The deciding factions for me was, every store around my area was sold out & the only ones I found online were around $200, so I got my dd the leapfrog explorer.

We were able to get a leap pad. DH called the Toysrus and they still get shipments in, but he had to go stand in line before the store opened. He said it was like a mob scene with people pushing & shoving...very ugly. He spoke with a manager and she changed their policy and handed out tickets to people waiting in line, 1 per customer. She told him when their next shipment was coming and he got there early and had no problems.

We looked into leap pad , innotab and new nook. Decided to get daughter Amazon fire tablet. She can download educational apps, stories, movies, more storage capacity and higher resolution compared to the others.

Tablet that runs on android. Lots and lots of free apps / games. Instead of buying tons of cartridges.

..And that is the exact reason I considered getting him a tablet... if I get an inexpensive one $150-200 it will probably cost less than the leappad & games... I'm leaning more toward tablet.  :-)  Thanks!  Do you have one, or reccomend one?
