Inexpensive tablet suggestion? (under $100)

Looking for a tablet under $100. This will mainly be used for stuff like Angry Birds and other similar games. No web surfing or email, no productivity. ebook? maybe.

Suggestions?

Kind of interested as well, something for 5-7 year olds without spending a ton of money on an ipad.

I plan on getting an ipad, but will probably wait for the next generation to see where the technology heads; but something for the kids to play on would be cool...

There is something called the Novo7 that is $99 and comes with android 4.0 but no Market access at this time (but it does come with angry birds).

^That or a used Nook Color. You can use it stock (Angry Birds) or throw full blown Android on it with CM9.

understood. but the it's for a 9 year old girl with Autism. She doesn't surf the web, email or do any sort of computing beyond recreational and educational games, and books. That's pretty much it.

My little brother has a ainol tablet. Its some kind of Japanese knock off. He likes it. I've played it a few times, but have nothing to compare it too. Its pretty cheap, might be worth a look.
