Fisher Price iXL

K.H. asks from Dallas, TX

My 5 1/2 year old daughter asked for the Fisher Price iXL for Christmas. She loves playing on our iphones and iPads and thought she might like this, but then I started reading all the reviews and everyone raved about it for their 2 & 3 year olds. Is she too old for it? Academically, I think she's above average in reading, writing, math.... if that makes any difference with this "toy".
Appreciate any feedback!

What can I do next?

I looked into it for my 3 year old and it bothered me that all the games were for the same age group 3-7. I think that is too big of a span that they it might be too much for the young kids, and too easy for the bigger kids. I would stick with a system that has different games for different age groups so you can find her something more appropriate.

We got it for our daughter for Christmas last year, she was just a few weeks shy of her 4th birthday. She'll be turning 5 this January, and she still plays with it and enjoys it, and I'm even buying her a new game for it for Christmas. That being said . . . I probably wouldn't buy it for her now, because she is advanced in her learning and everything is easy for her, so the games really just reinforce what she knows. She has enjoyed it very much. I agree with one of the recommendations to look into the new Leapster "iPad".

My daughter got it last year when she was 4 1/2, and she played with it all of the time. She still pulls it out from time to time, but it is definitely too easy for her now at 5 1/2.

I looked at those for my 2 year old. She may like the leapster pad. IT is pretty col and it you can purchase "apps" for it. I decided not to purchase any hand held games, but I would recommend that or the leapster 2 or even mobigo for her age.

Before buying it I would recommend that you see the reviews on Leapad from Leapfrog. My kids 3 and 5, have leapster explorer and they both love it! my little one goes crazy with her father's ipad and iphone and the leapad sounds really really good for kids as having "their own" ipad! That is what Santa is bringing to both my kids their own leapad with games!

I have had very very good experience with all the toys and games from leapfrog. Maybe just check it out! Nothing to loose.
Good luck!
