Holiday Giveaway – Fisher Price iXL!

Yes, that’s right! We have a new in the box, unopened, glorious Fisher Price iXL to giveaway! Make your kids super happy this holiday season by winning this and wrapping it up under the tree (or menorah, or whatever you celebrate!).

I got to play with the iXL at both BlogHer and Time To Play‘s Holiday Showcase. They are so great for the younger kids. It’s a handheld game, ereader, notepad, mp3 player in one! Now Cartman want’s to give it to your little one for the Holidays!

From the Fisher Price website:

These days, even preschoolers want cool digital devices. Wait ’til they get their hands on iXL—the learning, entertainment and media center just for kids. Like them, it’s small but powerful. Full of creative fun. And very, very smart. It flips open and turns from a book to a game player and so much more—it’s like having six digital devices in one! Kids will love all the different ways to play, learning important fundamentals along the way. Folds closed for on-the-go fun. Requires 4 AA batteries (not included).

iXL also requires a PC or Macintosh computer with internet connection, CD-ROM drive and USB port. The Media Manager CD-ROM it comes with makes it easy for kids to load and manage their own photos, music and software titles. iXL can store multiple files.

Base system includes:
• 1 interactive story and activity
• 1 learning game
• Writing activities
• Art tools and stampers
• Music sampler
• Sample photo images
• And it’s easy to add more!

iXL teaches:
• Story comprehension
• Counting (by 1’s, 2’s, 10’s)
• Art and creativity
• Phonics
• Vocabulary
• Writing
• Spelling and lots more!

So you know you want one right?! They retail for $80. We have one for you for free. 😉 It’s a blue case, but if you have a little girl, she’ll be so enamored with the games, she won’t care about the color.

    This would be a perfect gift for my almost 5 year old. I like it’s flexibility — the fact that it’s fun and educational all at the same time.

  2. shawna says

    I love that its educational and fun, too! I also love that it is so many things in one! ereader, music player, etc…my daughter would be sooooo happy to have one!

  3. Synthea Birchenall-Palmer says

    “liked” Facebook. But I don’t have a Twitter account. What a fantastic site! I didn’t know you all were here, but glad I found you! Going to go explore around some more.

  4. says

    I love that you can sneak in that education in with the fun and get stuff online and upload it. With two older brothers Matt would love to have his own handheld too.

  5. says

    I love that it’s a game player, music player and reader, all the features are great, picking one would be hard. I”m sure my daughter would love the art/drawing and music.

  6. says

    I love that it is both educational and fun. The fact that there is already a story in it makes it really cool. Would be the perfect gift for my son.

    I love the educational games and want to know why didn’t we have any of these fun things to play with when we were kids.. All we had were flash cards to try to make us learn and have fun at the same time.

  8. Melody says

    I love the educational factor of this. My little one wants a hand held electronic game like his big brother & sister but the ones they have are too old for him. I love that this one is just right for him. My son has bad vision and our eye doctor actually recommended we get him a hand held game system like this for him to play when he has to wear his eye patch to help focus his eyes and make them work together. On top of that it will make the chore of wearing the eye patch fun because he gets a reward for it!

    Maddy played with one of these in Toys R’ Us the other day and loved it. I like that it has learning games and writing activities. Technology for preschoolers is great as long as it is teaching them something. :)

    I love this it has so many redeeming qualities. I think my fave would be the sample photo images. My daughter loves scrolling thru my smartphone to look at the photos and this would be her own larger size smartphone.

  11. Trudy says

    I thought I already posted this- but don’t see it. Plz delete if it’s a duplication!

    Twitter follower! (trudibeth77)

  12. Trudy says

    Oh wow– thank you for the opportunity! This is high up on our list for my son- but doesn’t look like it’s going to work for us this year. So it would be awesome to win one!!!!!!

    My fave features are the mp3 player and the picture manager- these two features make it a truly multi-functional device. My almost 5 year old is really getting into music and he LOVES to take pics with his camera- plus he loves playing the learning games on his Leapster, so I know this would be a HUGE hit! (not to mention we can’t pass the demo in Target without him playing it!)

    Thanks again!

  13. Jodi says

    Love that it has so many different features for learning but also games for fun!

    I follow on FB and subscribe to the feed, too. :)

  14. Denise Fiducia says

    I love the game, multi function, change to book features, and I follow on fb, twitter and all the other places.

  15. Eureka Mitchell says

    I like most how it can turn from a book to a game player! Like having six digital devices in one! So neat! =))
