LittleTouch LeapPad by leapfrog is an excellent transition into electronic toys for your little one. We use it for our 15 month old, he is just starting to get into it, and his sister used it for about 2 years before she got too old for it. He uses it often, and you put new books in it and a new cartridge into it when you want to switch to new activities. The simple touch of a character, word or picture on the book causes songs, talking or effects to be heard-it is durable enough to endure little busy hands. I personally love the songs, the cartridges are varied and our favorite is "Where the Wild Things Are." My main complaint is how the push of some objects does not correspond, it is not always the most accurate, but for a toddler under 2, they hardly notice. Overall, a great toy to introduce your little ones into hands on electronics.
