    That's unbelievable...

    Kid screams for phone... parents give kid phone... then use her as a jester and put a video of her on youtube...

    what sane person gives a kid their phone and puts videos of them on the internet?

    my 2 1/2 year old is able to unlock the screen and switch between home screen and search. They both do this if I leave my iPhone in reach by accident. They love it.

    It's a challenge replacing it with something else when I am trying to get it away from them.

    lol, parents who are PROUD of such a tech savy toddler, not to mention that level of dexterity at her age.
    Is it really that bad?

    My two year old girl got an iPod Touch for Christmas because she was draining the batteries on my and my wife's iPhones.

    It's a better investment than a Nintendo DS because there are TONS of educational games, the games are much cheaper (or free) and you can do a lot more on it than play games.

    The only thing my daughter can't do on her iPod Touch (yet) is spell the name of the video she wants to watch on YouTube. She'll hand her iPod to me with the YouTube search box open and say, "Please find me Donald Duck" or whatever she wants to watch.

    It's amazing that just three years ago we were all getting used to this new technology and now toddlers are flicking and swiping deftly through menus and movies. Amazing...

    I think it is cool how small toddlers are using the iphone.

    Apple should use this kind of stuff in commercial purposes. This definitely shows how childishly easy it is to use the iPhone.

    The general rule of thumb is Kids + phones = broken phones!! There are lots of kids toys that will enable them to develop dexterity. Giving a child a touch screen smartphone is (as I said already) turning the child into a jester for the amusement of adults. The two parents in that video seem to be getting more enjoyment out of it than the child who just want's a nice tune to rock to.

    Also I wouldn't put videos of my kids on the internet. Particularly not on youtube for all the world to see. This is for obvious reasons.

    One day, while she was pregnant, my aunt's iPhone went missing. Five months later my nephew was born while he was on hold with Toys R Us.

    quite, though this wasn't the reason for your dislike of it, as you say below..

    Well, children are great to laugh at, but i think the parents think more of her than just a jester. I have to disagree about who was getting the most enjoyment.., did you see the child before she got it compared with after?however you want to argue it, the child had a greater change in mood than the adults, anything else is just speculation.

    why? its no different from someone looking at a child in the street, apart from being probably safer over youtube as there is no possibility of contact.

    It's completely different to seeing someone in the street....

    Someone in the street can see my child and walk by.... someone on youtube can watch it over and over again and save it in their favourites....

    No thank you!

    Just my opinion and I'm sure every one has their own thoughts on this issue.

    yes, less safe.

    Someone in the street can see my child and walk by.., film them, kidnap them, hurt them...someone on youtube can watch it

    yeah, watching a child on a rocking horse is f***ing evil!!!

    Well made point until you let yourself down with unnecessary expletives!

    We'll have to agree to disagree ;)

    Both involve parents after attention, on the same spectrum just at different positions.

    Ok, go ahead and watch my kid over and over again.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGm1_3zcH6s

    I have still seen no reasons posted here why I should care at all. Your best reason is that someone might watch it multiple times? So what?

    Go ahead!

    Gosh, I wasn't even allowed to use the phone until I was 8 YOs and then I needed to ask first. :)
