For iPhone and iPod Touch owners with young children, "can I play with your iPhone?" is a frequent refrain. Accessory maker Griffin has released the Woogie 2 (http://store.griffintechnology.com/woogie-2), a five-legged fuzzy friend to protect vulnerable devices from damage when children play with them.
With thousands of interactive books and games available from the App Store, a parent's iPhone or iPod is a natural for kids to want to play with. Woogie 2 is the ideal solution, providing kid-friendly access, while preserving parental peace of mind. Woogie's integrated pocket velcroes shut securely with iPod or iPhone inside. A touch-through screen protector allows kids to choose movies, apps or music with the swipe of a finger. Woogie 2 can be propped up on its fuzzy legs or nested comfortably in a child's lap for viewing.The Woogie 2 is built from certified non-toxic materials, so it's safe for kids and is recommended for ages 3 and up. Woogie 2 is $19.99 from Griffin's online store (http://store.griffintechnology.com/woogie-2).

It is cheaper than most of the plastic cases... Also, my wife both has dropped and lost her iPhone more times than I can think of. Maybe I can get her one of these as a "joke."

The card would say something like.
I will never again hear the words. "Honey, have you seen my iPhone?"

:rolleyes:

We use the Fisher-Price case which blocks the child from pressing the Home button. It works great!

So cute! I just ordered one for my niece. Or my brother, technically, I guess…? Whatever.

I would like one of those in a size large enough for my iPad. Would look really cute sitting on desk. :D

Now, if only there was a way to lock the springboard so that the kids can't move/delete apps or switch to a different page (all the kids' stuff is on it's own page).

Really, what I'd like would be a second user account on the phone.

My little guy (1.5 years old) can play with the iPhone without breaking it, but he loves to place calls. If I could somehow block outgoing calls, it would be magic. The home button blocker will make him mad. Plus I don't want to have to put it in a different case every time.

He clearly needs his own iPod touch!

How about just putting it in airplane mode before giving it to him? Simples.

My guess is he bought it for his brother to use when he gives it to his doughtier. IE the posters niece... Just a thought.
