DD is asking for a leap pad for her bday b/c she saw some others kids' pads at school. I debated an ipad instead but she is very insistent on the leap pad and the ipad has drawbacks too obviously. The $25 game price tag is getting to me though--- is the $25 princess leap pad game way better than a 1.99 princess app on an ipad??? Are these games in depth enough for that price??? I'm just torn about the whole thing.
DS asked for a Wii. I would not ordinarily entertain this just yet (they're turning 5) but little does he know, we already own a Wii but just have never set it up in our house so that the kids wouldn't know we had it. I might be willing to pull it out & 'give' it to him but I'm concerned that the newer games won't work on it, it is one of the original ones I think (2nd generation at the newest if that exists)... anyone know about how new Wii games work on old Wiis? We have very few games- the sports one that came w/ it, plus we have the wii fitness pad & the game that came w/ that. I know there is some pad thingee that you have to buy to work w/ certain games and that the Wii U games won't work but what about just a plain old simple game disc that are not 'Wii U'? We also only have the rectangular remote looking controllers if that matters?
