With the new emergence of the iPad, the Kindle Fire, the Blackberry Tablet and more, the Chalkboard Pad is a reminder of simpler times. Smart and functional in design, what it lacks in technological prowess it makes up for in adorable-chic. Perfect for kids who want something fun to play on or to put recipes up, the Chalkboard Pad is a hilarious alternative to the expensive tablets on the market today.

Created by Etsy sellers Peg and Awl, the inexpensive tablet set is reminiscent of true tablets and old school writing sets. With a leather-bound side to hold a chalk pencil in, the wood block chalkboard design is a throwback to when a tablet was literally a slab of wood.
