Walmart tells us that the latest LeapPad is among its most popular items on layaway this season, while Kmart also lists it as one of its biggest sellers. Billed as a learning tablet, the LeapPad has front- and rear-facing cameras, a 5-inch screen, a stylus and five preloaded apps. You can also purchase additional apps and cartridges. It retails for $99 at Walmart, where it's in-stock and can be shipped free to your home or local store. Intended for kids ages 3 to 9, it takes four AAA batteries, which aren't included.
