Does your child have iPad envy? Try Leapfrog's LeapPad Explorer, a tablet for the younger set (about ages 4 to 9). Powered by four AA batteries, the LeapPad comes with a touch screen, microphone, gaming control pad and camera. Run on Leapfrog's catalog of Leapster Explorer cartridges, the tablet allows tech-savvy kids to read books, play games and listen to music, and just might be interesting enough to lure kids away from Mom and Dad's device.
