And here's some more detailed information on the Leappad line of tablets:
Put the power of learning into their hands with LeapFrog's LeapPad Explorer Learning Tablet! From ages 4-8 LeapFrog's done it again with a personalized learning tablet made especially for the kids! (Or the kid at heart!) Books, games, lessons, story editing, and so much more!
From math to geography, music to vocabulary- the LeapPad Explorer has what you need! This Learning Tablet has a 5" color touch screen that can be used with your finger or with the stylus provided. (Most likely the finger as I know the stylus is the first thing lost in my house!)

The LeapFrog LeapPad has Built in Camera and Video
Their LeapPad Explorer Tablet wouldn't be complete without something to help catch every learning adventure! That's why LeapFrog included built in camera and video recorder, encouraging children to express their creativity with a multitude of mediums!
Add pictures to their favorite stories, narrate and play back them back! Let them shoot video, take a picture, or even make their very own animated short! With a 2GB memory built-in, they have space for even the biggest imagination.
The LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer is Interactive and Kid-Friendly

The LeapPad works on Rechargeable Batteries
Here is my suggestion. Get some-rechargeable batteries! 4AA's to be exact. This is the first LeapFrog device that does not advise AGAINST using rechargeable batteries! Hip-hip-hooray!!! -says my pocket book!
Your child will be going through batteries at a tremendous rate, especially when they first get started. Invest in a few sets of rechargeable batteries (to have a set ready at all times) and a good charger and save yourself some time and money.
Pros and Cons of the LeapFrog LeapPad

A growing library of 100+ compatible games, applications, videos, flashcards and digital books
Excellent assortment of books to choose from that will read words your child if they don't know them
