Fisher-Price Baby iPhone Case

The Apptivity Case from Fisher-Price turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into a baby toy. The colorful Fisher-Price iPhone case has big, chunky handles that are easy to hold, and the phone is locked in the case behind a protective cover, so you can let your drooling baby play without worrying about the phone getting wet. The case also covers the Home button and volume control, preventing accidental dialing and other potential problems.

The Fisher-Price iPhone case has its faults. The phone is locked in, with all the controls obstructed, so it's not practical if you want to hand the phone over to your child for a quick distraction. Also, because all the controls are blocked, kids are stuck with one app until the case is unlocked again. If you want to let your baby or toddler play an app or watch a video without worrying about them breaking something or getting it dirty, however, this is a great product.
