can't help much sorry as I don't have one yet but am looking into getting a leappad tablet for my DC (6 & 3)

Looked at the innotab but don't think it comes with a camera so that was a deal breaker for me Smile

Thanks Simpson, you're right about the camera although we've got a kiddizoom camera and that plugs straight in to the Innotab hence me being even more confused!

I'm looking at getting ds(5) one, possibly the leappad one because of thebuilt in camera. But if you already have one not sO much of a decision maker!

I'm in the same dilemma, I want to get it now before they all go out of stock. From what I have read in reviews so far the leappad is very good but eats the batteries as there is no charger with it and the apps are expensive. I would like to get a review of the innotab to see what it is like.

Me too! Am marking my place hoping someone comes along who might know!

hope this helps Think it will be the innotab here, if we can find one in stock!!

Ds is getting a leap Pad. We chose it due to the fact it looks better. More like 'daddy's' IYKWIM whereas I think the innotab is quite box like Hmm

Amazon have a few innotabs SaintBelle have just bought one for ds birthday! Grin

SaintBelle · 22/10/2011 21:43

Thanks Blonde, will check it out!

We've gone for the innotab as it has an mp3 player. Spent yesterday evening downloading all our iTunes on to it - very easy. Proof will be when the birthday boy opens it on Friday, but I had fun playing with it! Grin

I'll (hopefully) be getting the Innotab as DS is getting a Kiddizoom from Grandma!

Hi, I am in the same quandary - DS(4) also already has a Kidizoom and DD(2) will be getting hers for Christmas (so that DS can actually get a go on his!). BUT I do have a massive "thing" about accents. Please could anyone answer whether either the Innotab or the Leappad have British accents (either on the software and on the pre-loaded areas)? Thanks so much! xx

Check out which should hopefully answer any questions you have regarding which is better suited for your dc. I think I'm going for the innotab. I want to be able to put videos etc onto the sd card and thinking of getting a kiddizoom for DD anyway, this is more for a surprise to keep her quiet in the car when we go on holiday next year, think I can get it through clubcard exchange so thought I would by it now.
