Seriously. Forget handing your kid your iPad (correction: your second iPad, because said kid threw your first onto the tile floor when an Elmo app took too long to load). The Chalkboard Pad ($50) from Peg and Awl should be entertainment enough. It's free of bells, whistles, and even bright colors, making it the perfect "power down" toy.
