Fisher-Price Easy Link Internet Launch Pad
The Internet can be a nightmare for
parents -- especially for parents with small children. Making the
Internet a healthy, appropriate, and fun place for pre-schoolers,
the Fisher-Price Easy Link Internet Launch Pad helps connect kids
directly to the official Web sites of their favorite characters.
Designed for children ages three and up, this launch pad is easy to
use and safe for your kids -- and the family computer!
The Easy Link Launch Pad includes three popular child-safe and
durable plastic figures -- Elmo from Sesame Street, two dinosaurs
from The Wiggles, and a Fisher-Price dog. Each character works as a
direct key to its own Web site. When Elmo is plugged into the launch
pad, children are immediately transported to the games section of
SesameStreet.com. Eight other familiar Easy Link character smart
keys are available for purchase separately.
Peace of Mind
Because the Fisher-Price Easy Link Internet Launch Pad blocks access
to other Internet sites, links, and pop-ups, kids can connect to
these interactive Web sites all by themselves, without you having to
worry that they're visiting other innappropriate or unsafe sites.
The only way for your child to navigate to another Web site is by
inserting a different Easy Link character. To get back to normal
computer use, you simply input a password and the the Easy Link
program turns off. Parents can also rest assured that their computer
is secure, as the launch pad also blocks access to your desktop and
Kids easily learn to play games on their favorite Web sites using
the computer's mouse and arrow keys on the launch pad. Setting up
the Easy Link system is easy. Simply connect the launch pad to the
computer's USB port and install the software from the included
CD-ROM. Not compatible with Mac computers, the Easy Link Internet
Launch Pad requires Microsoft Windows XP, 2000, or Vista; a 750 MHz
processor; a USB 1.1 port, 128 MB of RAM, and an Internet
What's in the Box
Easy Link Internet Launch Pad, CD-ROM software, USB cable, and three
character smart keys.
The Easy-Link Internet Launchpad offers Internet environments that
allow children to play games without venturing into other areas
online. Parents simply connect it to their computer using the
included USB cable to allow kids to safely visit
preschool-appropriate Web sites and play online games. Kids can plug
their favorite character figures into the Launchpad and be taken
directly to that character's website.
Once a character is plugged in, kids are only allowed to visit pages
on that Web site until they plug in a different character, keeping
them away from unsafe sites and unable to get into your computer
files. Each game can be played using your computer's current mouse
and the arrow keys on the Easy-Link Internet Launchpad. When parents
want to go back to normal computer use, they can simply enter a
passcode to turn the Easy-Link off.
Launchpad comes with three Easy-Link figures: Elmo, The Wiggles and
a cute Fisher-Price character. Eight additional Easy-Link Figures
sold separately. Measures 10.5"L x 10.5"W x 6"H.
