The Easy-Link Internet Launchpad offers Internet environments that allow children to play games online without venturing into unsafe areas.
The Easy Link Launch Pad includes three popular child-safe and durable plastic figures -- Elmo from Sesame Street, two dinosaurs from The Wiggles, and a Fisher-Price dog. Each character works as a direct key to its own Web site. When Elmo is plugged into the launch pad, children are immediately transported to the games section of SesameStreet.com. Eight other familiar Easy Link character smart keys are available for purchase separately.
Peace of Mind
Because the Fisher-Price Easy Link Internet Launch Pad blocks access to other Internet sites, links, and pop-ups, kids can connect to these interactive Web sites all by themselves, without you having to worry that they're visiting other innappropriate or unsafe sites. The only way for your child to navigate to another Web site is by inserting a different Easy Link character. To get back to normal computer use, you simply input a password and the the Easy Link program turns off. Parents can also rest assured that their computer is secure, as the launch pad also blocks access to your desktop and hard drive.
Kids easily learn to play games on their favorite Web sites using the computer's mouse and arrow keys on the launch pad. Setting up the Easy Link system is easy. Simply connect the launch pad to the computer's USB port and install the software from the included CD-ROM. Not compatible with Mac computers, the Easy Link Internet Launch Pad requires Microsoft Windows XP, 2000, or Vista; a 750 MHz processor; a USB 1.1 port, 128 MB of RAM, and an Internet connection.
What's in the Box
Easy Link Internet Launch Pad, CD-ROM software, USB cable, and three character smart keys.

My 3 year old daughter can now surf the internet without needing any assistance. If you have a young kid you understand how important it is at their age to "do it myself". It couldn't be an easier concept: insert a character key into the slot and your computer brings up the specific website. When she gets bored with one, in goes another character key and on to the next site. The best part is that once a "key" is inserted, the browser is locked to those sites. My daughter will not accidentally hit any buttons and get explicit content.
She is learning lots of basic computer skills while having a fantastic time. The websites have lots of educational games, stories, and activities. Now I just hope that they continue to put out more smart keys (like Curious George), but it seems that there are no shortage of them right now. This is easily one of her favorite toys, and nothing makes a parent feel better then watching their kid have fun while learning. Just don't tell her she's learning!
I can't recommend this enough to anyone with children 3 and up.
The smart keys are durable enough that I let my baby play with them in his highchair. My only complaint is that a couple of the smart keys take you to the same websites...the kids don't seem to mind because they might prefer one character over another, but I wouldn't have bought multiple smart keys that take you to the same place. And to keep the peace with my two kids...it would be great if there were a way for two kids to play some of the activities simultaneously with two separate mouses.
Also, some of the 'keys' are geared towards different age groups. For instance, the Arthur games are better for a much older age group than the ones on the 'Fisher Price Dog' key. But ALL of them say '3 and up'. There are whole paragraphs to read on some of the Arthur games, which of course my 3 yo can't do. I have 5 of the keys and I have only found ONE game that uses the keyboard instead of the mouse.
I think I am going to put the whole system away for a while until he can click on a very specific target with the mouse. :-(
