You might’ve already checked out our hands-on time with LeapFrog’s next-gen LeapPad, but starting today, now you can finally get your own palms on the kid-friendly slate. The company — who’s also introduced us to the Explorer — has announced its LeapPad 2 is now up for grabs at an array of online and brick-and-mortar shops, such as Target, Best Buy, Kmart, Amazon and, naturally, its very own site. Now, the $100 LeapPad 2 isn’t anywhere near the same class as Mountain View’s $200 Nexus 7, though for obvious reasons, as it’s targeted at a completely different audience. In other words, those 100 bucks might just be enough to keep kids away from your precious every-day tablet. We’ll let you decide that, however.
