We have a long drive coming up (like almost 8 hours each way, not including the billion breaks we will need to take). So I think this trip might be what pushes me over the edge to get a tablet of some sort for the family. We currently have laptops and iPhones, and an old school kindle, but no iPad or similar.

So I'm looking for recommendations for a device that our almost 4 yo could use to watch shows/ movies as well as some interactive apps, but that DH and I could also use when we want. DH has been wanting a kindle or ereader, for example. We will often not be in wifi when we want to use it so I guess we need a reasonable amount of storage. Ideally not too expensive since we willbe letting a preschooler use it.

What do you have and like? What apps do you like for this age?
