LeapFrog Epic Academy Edition
Founded in 1994, LeapFrog has been in the foreground of combining technology with early education and is remembered fondly by this writer as a fun alternative to boring exercises.

The Epic comes with pre-loaded content, educational apps, a free 3-month trial of LeapFrog Academy, access to LeapFrog's Learning Library, a web browser with parental controls, and access to add Adroid apps. LeapFrog's games and lessons will lead your child through traditional learning subjects as well as creativity, problem solving, and social-emotional skills. Play at home with Wi-Fi or on the road with no signal at all. Designed primarily for children from 3-6, the Epic comes with the rubber bumper case to save it from the inevitable falls and is ready to get into your kid's hands right out of the box. The Epic has a 7 inch screen, 1GB of RAM, 16GB storage, and a battery life that should give you up to 7 hours to get stuff done!
