Fisher-Price Develops iPhone Case For Toddlers

Is all of this news about new phones such as the Motorola Atrix or Samsung Galaxy S II making you question your iPhone's future? Well Fisher-Price has a solution called the "Laugh & Learn Baby iCan Play Case".

Due out sometime this summer, Fisher-Price's latest addition to toddler educational toys turns your iPhone (or iPod touch) into a colorful, durable and chewable toy for the little ones.

If you're worried about your $400 phone being in the hands of a three year-old child, take comfort in the fact that the entire phone is well protected in case your child decides to throw the toy around.

For decades Fisher-Price has provided fun alternatives to books by incorporate games and toys into learning. Now, we can probably expect the release of several iPhone apps that will go along with the Laugh & Learn Baby iCan Play Case.

With the great features of the iPhone such as a camera, accelerometer and gyroscope the future of Fisher-Price educational apps is very promising.

It may sound impractical to give such an expensive phone to toddlers, but in a world where new phones are being released every few months, Fisher-Price has developed a great alternative to recycling or reselling that old iPhone of yours. No details on pricing yet, but expect to see the iCan Play Case in stores sometime during the summer.

    My kids, at 4 & 7 are past this. However the recycling part is a good idea. I gave my kids my old iPhone 3's when we got new iPhone 4's. They've been beating on them, dropping them and generally not being nice and they're still holding up well for close to 1 year now. They both love playing games on them and both picked up the concept of a touch screen right away.

    I can see apps for younger kids really catching on. Good on Fisher Price.
