For most American children, the day after Christmas is typically spent wearing out new toys, games and gifts they received the previous morning. But two-year-old Abigail Parker of Galion would never get that chance with her new Leap Pad computer.

Abigail's mother, 24-year-old Amber Parker says the two dropped their presents off at their house after spedning Christmas Day with family, then walked to their neighbor's house for a game of cards. While the Parker's were next door for a couple of hours, Amber says someone broke into their home and stole some valuable items.

Abigail's brand new Leap Pad, which Amber says she worked "a ton of overtime" to buy for her daughter, had been stolen, along with Amber's lap-top computer and some jewelry. Parker says the house was still very neat after the incident and that she would have never noticed someone had broke in if her lap-top wasn't missing.

Parker says she is an online college student at South University and recently lost her job in mid-December. She feels "violated" after the incident and has filed a police report with the Galion Police Department.
