Fisher Price Reveals Kid-friendly DVR and Video Player

Being a parent is a pretty rewarding experience. Shaping the life of a human being while teaching them about the world can be a lot of fun, especially if they share your interests. However, chances are, if you're into gadgets, your kid has displayed an interest in the toys you're constantly tinkering with. Sadly, these little people can pose a pretty hefty risk to your gadgets and electronics, so letting them have hands on time with your expensive possessions can be nerve-wrecking. Between sticky fingers and butter fingers, a lot of gadgets wouldn't stand a chance in the hands of a 3-year-old, which is probably why Fisher Price's line of Kid Tough electronics looks so attractive. This week, at CES 2012, the company unveiled a portable DVR that's designed to be tough enough to withstand horseplay with your little tyke.

Dubbed the Kid Tough Portable DVR, this device is available in either pink or blue and is aimed at children between the ages of 2- and 5-years-old. Though it's touted as a DVR, this new addition to the company's Kid Tough gadget line is actually more of a media player in our minds as it also features a 3.5-inch touchscreen and headphone jack for watching content on the go. It's rechargeable battery is good for 4-6 hours of playback and is recharged via a docking station. To use the device, you simply dock the DVR in its station, connect it to your set top box and set the time and duration you wish to record.

Storage space is definitely not the device's best feature, with just 2GB as standard, however, this is expandable up to 32GB if you need to squeeze more episodes of the Wizards of Waverly Place on there. Set to hit stores in May of this year, the price tag for this puppy is $150. Who wants to buy one and test its ruggedness against their 4-year-old?
