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.

My 3 year old loves this. She can play all the games. I used to be against electronic devices for kids but it is a nice distraction when she needs some quiet time or driving long distances. Plus all of her games seem to be somewhat educational. 🙂

My four year old loves hers. We too use it in the car, for a quiet time, or in waiting rooms. The games end up being fairly pricey, but that is the case with all the video games out there.

My daughter received this from Grandma for her 3rd birthday and she absolutely loves it. Her 6 year old brother likes to play with it too, even though her’s is pink!

This is so cool! Pretty soon parents will become completely phased out!

Uh, Chris, I don’t think a child that hasn’t learned anything from their parents would ever know how to operate one of these things. Technology is our future. Kids in my home state get laptops when they are in middle school from our public school system.
