do you have any tips on which on is better?
I seriously doubt you will find the leappad today... that was one of the "it" gifts this year so I think most places have been out for a while. Gavin has this Leapster Explorer and has really enjoyed it:
We bought it last Christmas. Do yourself a favor and go ahead and buy some of those rechargeable Energizer batteries. This thing sucks them up like nobody's business.
