Today I’m going shopping for my very own tablet. I’m excited because my daughter loves using my smartphone and I’m sure she’ll love using a tablet even more. I love all of the different apps I can download and purchase on the new tablets. They are extremely user friendly.
I’m pretty sure I would like to get an IPad but I’m keeping an open mind and am going to check out the competition as well. I want to handle all of the different tablets before I make my final choice. I guess it’s kind of like taking a new car out for a test drive before deciding which one to buy.
Most of my friends have the IPad but some of the guys at work are using some of the other tablets out there and convinced me to at least give them a try. I can’t wait to see what they all offer and what kind of package deals I might be able to get.
My daughter loves the IPad and Iphone. I went through all of the apps she uses and thought I would share them with you all. I know I love FREE stuff and you probably do too. I’ll work on updating it as time goes by to let you know what she likes what new apps we find.

There are soo many different electronic toys out today that it’s hard to pick and chose what to get. Lady Bug enjoys playing on my IPad but I want to get her something of her own. I’ve seen tablets made just for kids. I’ve been looking at the Leap Pad Explorer, the Innotab, and the Nabi. I’m not really sure what the best one would be.
Each model has it’s pros and cons. I like that they all seem to be built very sturdy and have that indestructible look to them. I’d hate for Lady Bug to drop it once and have it break. I really appreciate that each of them have software developed for kids. I’m not too keen on the price of some of the games, apps, or software. Twenty five dollars for one little game seems to be a bit much in my opinion when I can download absolutely free applications on my IPad that Lady Bug loves.
I’m looking for the most versatile tablet that will grow with her. If I’m going to be schilling out mega bucks I don’t want it to be on something she will stop playing within a month or two. I suppose I’ll look up some reviews and see what other parents say about each item. I’m leaning towards the Nabi now but have not made my final decision yet.
