We knew the iPad was an influential lil device, so it's no surprise that it only took a a year for it to be sized down for kids. Fisher-Price, VTech, and LeapFrog all offered up versions designed specifically for youngsters. The Fisher-Price Learn Through Music TouchPad ($50) was designed with 42 touch-points to help toddlers learn through rhythm, rhyme, repetition, and music, as well as a microphone for singing along with Dora, Thomas, and the Little People. VTech's InnoPad ($80) comes with three games, one ebook (complete with a great dictionary component), a built-in stylus, a USB port for computer connections, a kickstand to allow it to be converted into an AA digital photo frame, and the ability to transfer in photos. LeapFrog's LeapPad ($100) has ebook capabilities that adjust to kids' reading levels, a built-in camera, and Leapster Explorer compatibility, making it the hottest toy of the holiday season!
