While adults are drooling over the Apple iPad, your children are drooling (literally) over the Fisher-Price iXL tablet. The Fisher-Price iXL is an educational toy designed for children ages 3-6 years old and could be the best educational device yet.
Children usually view anything educational as boring wastes of time, but the Fisher-Price iXL tablet for kids will change the boring stigma on educational games. The Fisher-Price iXL tablet mirrors the Apple iPad in several ways (looks not being one of those ways). Like the iPad, the Fisher-Price iXL is an ebook reader, game player, MP3 player, picture viewer, has an app store and more. Unlike the iPad, the Fisher-Price iXL is a bit smaller, designed for kids, and has SD Card and USB input (poor iPad).
The Fisher-Price iXL teaches children using six preloaded programs: Game Player, Story Book, Art Studio, Music Player, Photo Viewer, and Note Book. All of these children educational tools are different but they are designed to teach your child different things.
The Story Book application is designed to teach kids how to read. It’s interactive and words are highlighted as they are read to your child – to teach kids how words are spelled as they hear them. The Art Studio application lets your children express their artistic side. Kids can use the Art Studio application on the Fisher-Price iXL to draw pictures, paste pictures, and color in color books. Children can play fun educational games using the Fisher-Price iXL’s Game Player.
Some Fisher-Price iXL applications and games are made to be displayed in landscape mode and others are designed to display in the portrait orientation. The Fisher-Price iXL has an attached plastic stylus that allows your children to play, color, read, and write on the educational games and applications of the Fisher-Price iXL.
The Fisher-Price iXL sounds like lots of fun for kids and seems like a great way to teach your children how to read and learn while playing – that way they’ll learn naturally (without pressure). This iPad-like tablet is the perfect platform to teach your kids in a way that they’ll enjoy and for only $79.99, the Fisher-Price iXL tablet will be the most important toy you’ll buy your child.
