This exciting handheld toy helps introduce children to technology.

Made of rugged plastic that will survive all kinds of crazy play, the iXL is similar to popular hand-held game players, but is designed for the use of younger children. The device opens like a book to reveal an LCD touch screen that displays all the action. Your kid will navigate through the activities by touching the tethered stylus to the screen.
The iXL is extremely intuitive and uncomplicated. The stylus has a holster and is tethered to the device by a sturdy nylon string, so your child will never lose it. Opposite the screen is a speaker with volume control, an Action button that allows you to make choices in certain modes, and a Home button that returns you to the Main Menu whenever you wish.
Easy Set Up
To turn the piece on, you or your child will simply press the Power button positioned on the side of the device. All elements of interaction--from the generous buttons and stylus, to the iXL's hearty casing--are practical for children's use.
After unpacking the iXL, you'll get it ready for play by inserting four AA batteries then completing a quick calibration of the touch screen. You'll want to install the software for this toy via the accompanying CD-ROM to access additional features, software updates, and customizations. Additional iXL features include an SD slot for memory expansion, built-in memory of up to 150 MB, and a standard headphone jack for those long car rides or flights.
An Interactive Learning Experience
The iXL will keep curious kids busy, entertained, and learning with its six preloaded activities. Your child will practice reading and comprehension with the Digital Reader, which includes an interactive 15-page story available in either the reading or interacting mode. For kids who love action, the Game Player features a three-level arcade game that promotes counting and learning about sequences and numbers.
Future young writers can practice the alphabet and their penmanship in the Notepad mode, while young artists will flex their creativity with the Art Studio's digital tools. The iXL includes an MP3 Player with five preloaded kid's songs and a Photo Viewer with three sample images that can be embellished and manipulated.
Software Downloads Expand Features
You'll get the most from the iXL by loading the software onto your PC and attaching the device to your computer with the accompanying USB cable. Although with high-speed cable internet software may take up to 30 minutes to download, once you completed this you can transfer files to increase playing options, including additional software for purchase that will add new stories and games for your child to play.
Navigating the software is simple and intuitive. You can create up to five profiles for the iXL, so this device can be enjoyed by the whole family. Add images or music files to the library and transfer them to the iXL. The software also gives you access to other fun and free extras, such as printable activity sheets for your child or the whole family, craft and party ideas, and other activity suggestions categorized by age.

EASE OF USE: Back to the 3yo. It took her less than a half hour to master using the iXL. She can navigate between the story, coloring book, MP3 player, and photo viewer without any problems. She has learned how to listen to the MP3 player while drawing and can change songs at will. She loves having her own MP3 player like her sisters and we filled it up right away with barney, elmo and blue's clues songs. It was easy to add songs and photos from our home computer. We only bought 1 extra title for this for now and no one is remotely bored.
THE STORY READER: This part seems to appeal only to my 6yo right now. The other 2 have used the story reader, but are more interested in the drawing and music. It has 2 modes, story and play. During story mode, you cannot turn pages or use the touch screen. You simply listen to the story accompanied by a little bit of animation. It turns the page for you when the page is complete. In play mode you can flip the pages forward and backward, interrupt the story and use the touch screen to make some the the animations come to life. Not super interactive, but cute. You also have the option of selected 1 or 2 words on a page that the reader has highlighted.Read more ›
- Volume control. A must for parents.
- Expandable memory.
- Locking battery compartment (needs a coin or flat head screw driver to unlock).
- Easy to navigate icon based menus.
- Each button press or action is accompanied by a sound effect. The kids seem to like that direct feedback.
- Music uploaded to the device can be played in the Paint app and the Photo Viewer while your child is coloring.
- The Photo Viewer allows your child to paint over your uploaded photos.
- Feels durable.
- Age range is 3 to 7 years, but both my 2 and 4 year old find it easy to use and fun.
- Included device management software for Windows 7 and up as well as OSX
- Connects via a standard USB cable, nice if you ever lose the one that came with it.
- Comes in 3 colors.
- It's a bit bulky in size for small hands.
- Fairly small and low resolution screen.
- The Resistive touchscreen requires the use of the stylus or fingernail, otherwise it requires a firm finger press. Without the stylus my children often find themselves pressing the same button several times before it registers.
- Heavy compression on uploaded photos.Read more ›
I am a tech-savvy user, a part time web developer. I can't imagine someone who has trouble with computers attempting to install anything on this device. I have been working with it for well over an hour, and still have not been able to load a single software onto it. After loading the initial software for the device (which MUST have admin rights to run) I got numerous error messages. Upon attempting to run the software for the first time, it requires connecting to the internet to download a 90mb update. The software will not allow a bypass to the update, and will not run without it.
The download has stopped three times now (lost connection to their server) and each time it restarts, it restarts from the beginning.
The software titles themselves come with a notice in the case, telling you that it will be necessary to connect to the internet to update the software. Apparently they are too cheap to burn new disks, and instead insist that the customer must go through the effort of attempting to download something from a crappy download manager connected to an unreliable server.
This is a huge disappointment from a company like Fisher Price.
My frustrations with this device, the poor software development, and terrible customer support, I will not be purchasing a Fisher Price electronic device ever again.
