If your child reaches for your iPad more than often, it may be time to get them a tablet of their own.

Lucky for you, Leapfrog’s LeapPad ($99) may be just the answer.

Kid-friendly and chock full of apps and activities, it’s perfect for mini hands.

It also features a built-in camera, video recorder and two stylus pens — in case one goes missing.

Plus, it’s compatible with the games from Leapfrog’s Leapster Explorer so you don’t have to buy loads of new ones if you own both.

We also like that you can auto-adjust games to your child’s level and that you can follow your child’s progress online through the company’s learning path software.

The only hitch: At $10 to $20 a pop, it can get pretty expensive to download games and books.
