  • Smart Phone Teether, $17 2 of 10
    Smart Phone Teether, $17

    Buy from Etsy (3 Princesses Engraving).
  • Wooden Creative Tablet, $38 3 of 10
    Wooden Creative Tablet, $38
    Another alternative that preps future techies, this iPad look-a-like blends a techie-looking device with childhood simplicity. Rather than play apps, kids can draw and create on their own.

  • Learning Tablets, $89.99 – $109.99 5 of 10
    Learning Tablets, $89.99 - $109.99
    The LeapFrog Learning Tablet is the hot gift of the holidays, but it can be a hard item to find — which is where the VTech Innotab comes in. It's virtually the same thing (both have e-readers, pictures, apps, and art studios, and are made for kids 4 - 9 years), but with a few big differences. The Leapfrog comes with more memory (2GB), as well as a built-in photo and video camera — the Innotab doesn't. BUT the Innotab has an MP3 player, the ability to upload videos, and a kick-stand (to watch those videos) — the Leapfrog doesn't. Moreover, you'll have to buy an SD card for the Innotab (evening out the prices), which brings the Innotab's memory to a whopping 16 GB. You can't expand the Leapfrog's memory past 2 GB (but you won't have to).
    Buy the Innotab from Best Buy.
    Buy Leapfrog LeapPad Learning Tablet from Kmart. (They're hard to find!)

    Buy from Apple.
  • NOOK Tablet ($249) or Kindle Fire ($199.99) 7 of 10
    NOOK Tablet ($249) or Kindle Fire ($199.99)
    The NOOK has more memory and the benefit of in-store support (plus it looks better), but the Kindle is super easy for tech newbies and has a TON of apps. Yet if you're looking for the best of the best tablet, you still can't beat an iPad's features, apps, and quality. You get what you pay for.
    Buy Kindle Fire from Amazon.
    Buy Nook Tablet from Barnes & Noble.
  • Logitech Harmony Link, $99.99 8 of 10
    Logitech Harmony Link, $99.99
