An iPad for preschoolers

Fisher-Price will sell an iPad for the Preschool Set, reports New York Times’ Bit Blog.

The iXL is a tablet-style electronic device that opens like a book. It is Mac and PC compatible.

It has fat, colorful icons on the right side and buttons and a speaker on the other side. As you might expect, there are apps for the new product: Story Book, Game Player, Note Book, Art Studio, Music Player and Photo Album software.

And, my goodness, this puppy even has a touch-screen.

The iXL will sell for $79.99. I wonder how it stands up to spilled grape juice, Play-Doh crumbs and drool.

  1. This looks like an excellent resource for developmentally delayed children as well, and is something I would be likely to consider as my non-verbal child ages. Who knows, maybe this will even find its way into my shopping cart this year. Thank you for passing on the information, Joanne. :)
