Fisher Price iXL 6-in-1 Learning System

Updated on July 8, 2014

 

Electronic gadgets come in unlimited shapes and sizes. They play music, they keep us in touch with virtually anyone in the world and they give us interesting things to do while we enjoy free time. Sometimes our gadgets help us get caught up on work while away from the office. Our kids see us interacting with electronic gadgets all day – everyday so it is not surprising that they want one of their own.

The Fisher Price iXL 6-in-1 Learning System is geared towards the needs of kids 3 to 6 years old. If they want to read a book they can. If they enjoy games they are covered. Listening to music can be public through built-in speakers or private through headphones. Sharing digital photos with friends and family is fun. Practice writing numbers, upper and lower case letters is very educational. For the artsy type there are works of art to create.

 

In a single book-like device sized to fit into a child’s hands there is enough fun and learning to last for hours at a time. There are none of those bulky cartridges to buy or deal with. Worried about the stylus getting lost? It is securely attached to the iXL. Internal memory is pre-loaded with the initial applications and additional software, MP3s and digital photos can be added via a MAC, PC or an SD Card. Not near an electrical outlet – no problem – just pop in 4 new AA batteries.

Interaction is the name of the game with the Fisher Price iXL. Reading a story becomes a learning experience with the “read to me mode” and the highlighted words that can help with comprehension and spelling. Some words can be pressed for further understanding. The child’s login name appears in stories and makes the device really personal.

 

 

Electronic gaming can be educational. The Fisher Price iXL has a preloaded game that teaches about numbers. Each of three levels emphasizes counting and number sequences. Printing practice and number writing is part of the notebook function.

 

The Fisher iXL Learning System starts off with one preloaded song and has the ability for other favorite songs in the MP3 and WMA formats to be added.  Background music plays while little ones create special art projects. Playing with stamps colors and pens are easy and there is no mess since it is all digital. How fun would it be to customize those photos by drawing funny hats and beards on them?

 

The screen measures 3.5 inches and is a color TFT QVGA. The speakers are integrated and memory extension is possible via SD cards.

Conclusion

This is a cool electronic gadget for kids that like to interact with technology. It is small enough to take on trips whether around town or on vacation. It is kid tough so mom and dad’s expensive music players, cell phones and laptops may be saved.

The Fisher Price iXL 6-in-1 Learning System is available in pink and white, blue and white and grey and white versions.
