Fisher-Price Gives Your iPhone The Trappings Of A Real Toy

Shoving your iPhone at your screaming kid in the backseat is kinda lowest-common-denominator parenting. But once you pop it into Fisher-Price's colourful Laugh and Learn iCan Play rattle it becomes a whole lot more like a real toy. Better for both you and baby!

The iCan Play case, out later this year for $US20, protects iPhones and iPod touches from whatever sticky fingers may be poking their way (and hides the home button, keeping kids locked into the app of your choosing.) To that end, Fisher-Price has three kid-friendly apps ready for download - Where's Puppy's Nose, Let's Count Animals!, and Animal Sounds - all of which have nice, bright graphics and respond variously to pokings, tiltings and shakings. Hey, it's more fun than letting your kid scroll through your Address Book. A lot less dangerous, too. [Fisher-Price]



    Yep, thats exactly what we need.

    Exposing babies to EME and the "possible" onset of cancer early in life...

    FFS what is the world coming to...

    @Ward: It is just a different way of learning things. One should always vary in playing, not just one toy. About EME... proof please. And if you are worried about babies, stop using it yourself.

    My friends kid plays with hers whenever he can, and they are usually sitting on a train together with her phone right there.....putting a cover on it will educate him alot more then a "home" button.
    EME exposure isn't exactly a rational argument when it comes to these's not going to make much of a difference for kids who play with it regardless....and I don't think my friend has any neglect issues to answer to!
