Fisher Price iXL – The iPad for Kids (kind of)

The 4-year-old loves his Leapster and the 7-year-old loves her Nintendo DS. On birthdays and holidays, it never fails we end up spending money on expanding these systems with new games or accessories.

Fisher Price has caught wind of this potential. They are jumping into the portable learning and entertainment system game with the Fisher Price iXL Learning System, geared towards 3 to 6-year-olds.

Introducing the newest kids tablet is the Fisher Price iXL.

IXL Features

The iXL features six applications: Story Book, Game Player, Note Book, Art Studio, Music Player and Photo Album. All apps are geared towards learning and interactivity.

The iXL is PC and MAC compatible. It features an SD card slot for expanded memory and comes with a USB cord to connect to the computer.

iPad for Kids

With the launch of the iPad that all the grown-ups have, your little Junior will be sure to want one to be just like mommy and daddy! Watch this item as it has good potential to be a must-have for the 2010 holiday season or toy must-haves. The Fisher Price IXL will launch in the Fall of 2010, stay tuned for more details for when this releases.

Here is a video showing you the Fisher Price iXL hands on.

This retails for around $79.99. Watch the big box stores and Amazon for deals!

The Good:

  • Keeping the kids entertained while they learn
  • Encourages reading
  • Offers a portable way to listen to music
  • Boasts a clam-shell body so when little hands drop won’t break very easily
  • Perfect size for little hands

The Bad:

  • Add-ons that will drive up the actual price
  • Unfortunately no video support
  • Limited apps

If you are in the market for a kids tablet, but not ready to commit to the price of an Apple iPad – consider the Fisher Price IXT.

How much are you willing to spend on a kids tablet? Is the iPad too expensive for kids?
