In Case Your Mobile Phone Isn't Toy Enough

mobile_baby_toy.gifHey, when chewing on my cell phone is the only thing that quiets the kid down, 9 times out of 10--ok, maybe 7 times out of 10--I'll let her have it. In the most desperate moments, goo-soaked keypad and potentially non-functioning charger ports seem like a small price to pay for a bit of quiet.

Now, though, the fine folks at Mobile Baby Toy think you should turn that phone over to the kid all the time. And not just any phone, but your new SmartPhone, the one running the Symbian OS and Nokia's Series 60 software platform.

Mobile Baby Toy is to mobile phones what Babysmash is to computers: it transforms all the keys into random sound- and image-generating playthings, while closing off the possibility for disastrous deletions or screwups. It comes with various themes: cartoons, wildlife, bambino, and--to build brand loyalty, you understand--a mockup Nokia interface. No mention of drool protection, however.

Download the software to your Nokia or other Series 60 phone for a trial period, buy it for 9.95, and kiss your phone goodbye.

My nine month old baby girl loves my Treo 600. Crying her head off - just flash the Treo and its hmmm...what is this amazing gadget. Whay I was crying? There is no stopping her when she gets hands and mouth on it. She has placed quite a few random phone calls to my friends and co-workers because of it.
