After the success of the original Mego 2-XL in the early 80s, the toy company Tiger decided to bring it back in early 90s. The Tiger 2-XL used compact cassettes split into four mono programs, rather than the 8-track tapes of the original. It mostly consisted of educational games and "Choose Your Own Adventure" stories.
The "World of 2-XL" tape was the introductory tape for the 2-XL in the U.S., as well as several other countries. The "Il Mondo di 2-XL" tape is the Italian version of this tape.
