I see a lot of user reviews of the leap pad ultra complaining about it hanging / crashing quite often. Reliability is something that the tech reviewers don't have time to check up on but it's essential

I actually just got one on Amazon called Bananax. Blew my son's Nabi out of the water. Had special made education games that seem to be made by the company just for their tablet.

Ended up buying a second one for my other son just so they could both play at the same time

The nexus 7 is a terrible tablet for toddlers. The lack of physical buttons means that the buttons always show up on the screen and they keep pressing them by mistake.

I have a Spidotech tablet and it works great, both or me and my 4 year old kid. The interface is quite easy to use and it runs a lot of interesting apps for the kids.
