Shelly Palmer Radio Report – April 3, 2014

It’s never too soon for your child to play with a tablet, and if you think they’re ready for a tablet of their own, here are some of my favorites available today. LeapFrog’s LeapPad 2 costs less than a hundred bucks and works with all cartridge apps and games from the first LeapPad, giving you access to a massive catalog. LeapFrog also makes the LeapPad Ultra, which is a little more expensive but worth it for older kids, because the Ultra feels like more of a “real tablet” thanks to media apps and other features. The Tabeo e2 from Toys R Us is a great Android device designed for kids ages 6 to 11. The e2 features parental controls and educational applications to make sure you know exactly what your kids are doing with the device. You can manage which apps are installed and limit usage by time or day. All of these tablets are great – and if you match the features and benefits to the intended user, you can’t go wrong.
