One of the most respected astrophysicists in the US, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson and other important academics have often mentioned that we ought to let our kids explore the physical world and experiment with objects in order to encourage a scientific mind. By restricting kids from touching and experiencing the things around them, we really do damage their creative energy and curious minds. This is probably what Fisher-Price has in mind when it introduced the “Laugh and Learn Apptivity” case of the iPhone, which is meant for children between 6 months to 36 months.
However, an iPhone is no toy in any sense of the word. Unless you have a ton of money to spare, the chances are that the iPhone would probably be one of the most expensive electronic gadgets that you own. Fortunately, the Laugh and Learn Apptivity Case is designed to securely hold the iPhone and protect it from the smudges or other damage that your toddler will unleash on it.
The case is constructed of durable rubber and comes with easy-to-grip handles for their small hands. The phone is put into the case through the back, which can only be opened with the twist of a key or coin. Once it is closed, it cannot be opened again easily without some tool, so you can be sure that your kids will not be able to do any real harm to it. In addition, the screen will be protected by clear film. There will also be mini rattles on the handles and a small mirror on the back that is designed to keep children entertained, even when the phone is not in the case. However, keep in mind that the volume controls will be inaccessible. Therefore, it is best to configure the settings before putting the phone into the case.
The case will be available from October onwards and will cost around $15. This is probably the best way to safeguard your iPhone and help enhance your child’s learning.
