Definitely an iPod Touch.  Under $200 for a new, 8G model (4th Generation) and it can do nearly anything an iPad can do (but smaller)!  Educational apps, we have some great Montessori ones for my...

Drummer's Wife -- I use the 3G all the time.  ALL the time.  But keep in mind that my current cell phone is a stuck-in-the-90s, pay-as-you-go "dumb" phone and I don't have a monthly cell phone bill...

There is a very nice park/zoo in Paramus called Van Saun - it has a few large playgrounds and a merry-go-round on one side, and then the zoo itself is small but nice with a train that does a loop...

DS is almost 28 months, at his appt. last month was 36" and 33-ish pounds. He's a big boy though, 90th percentiles still. (He hasn't gained any weight since 18m, but he grew like four inches!)
