Fisher Price iXL Learning System Review

     After searching and searching for a durable, but fun, educational toy for my 4 year old’s birthday. My husband and I settled on the Fisher Price iXL Learning System. Not only is it one of the more affordable learning systems on the market, I heard good things from other mothers who had personal experience with it.

     The moment she opened it, she loved it. Then, we turned it on and she loved it even more. It comes with one interactive story and activity, one learning game, writing activities where she can practice her letters, art tools, music sampler, sample photos and 9 mini-apps. There are also a wide variety of character games (everything from Scooby-Doo to Disney Princesses) that can be added to the device. You can also add your own music and pictures for more personal play.

     There are quite a few pros to this device. It’s reasonably priced. It has helped improved my 4 year old’s writing and reading. It teaches numbers and helps with fine motor skills. It’s also a great educational way to keep her distracted on long car trips. She enjoys it and sees it as “play” instead of “work”. There are certain aspects of the system that younger children (2 – 3 years), can use and understand.

     The cons. It runs through batteries like they’re going out of style. It uses 4 AA batteries. Depending on which applications she’s using, brand new batteries only last 14 – 20 hours of play. It doesn’t have much memory. She currently has 2 extra games and 40 songs, and it’s out of memory.

     Overall, we are very satisfied with this product. I would buy it again and I would recommend it to anyone. Just make sure that you have extra batteries available or invest in some rechargeable batteries.
