If your child is constantly grabbing for your handheld, maybe it’s time to get them one of their own. Lucky for you, Fisher-Price recently released the iXL Learning System: 6 in 1 Smart Device ($80), which is a terrific option. Suitable for kids from ages 3 to 7, it features a digital reader, game player, notepad, art studio, photo viewer and MP3 player.
It also comes loaded with an interactive story and activity featuring a cute monkey that will make your tots giggle for hours. More importantly, the iXL will help boost your child’s story comprehension, as well as help improve their counting, art, creativity, vocabulary and spelling skills.
We love the sturdy design — you don’t have to worry if it gets banged up. Plus, the controls and oversize stylus are easy for mini fingers to manage.
