Has anybody else had this problem -My baby loves the remote control.....

She is almost 7 months old and nothing, I mean nothing is as good as the remote control for the T.V.
Any suggestions on substitutions that might interest her as much?

  • LOL! My daughter loves the remote. I just take the batteries out of it and let her have it. Maybe you could buy her a cheap remote that's all her own? I know my family has always done that with cellphones, they'll buy a cheap dollar store phone and give that to the kid instead of a real one.

  • Mine does. That and cell phones. I got a toy one. Not the same. I don't like mine to have either because of germs that could be on them or possible lead.

  • LOL! Mine too! We have 3 remotes for the living room TV and she loves each one. She also loves the phone and cell phone! I got her a play phone and another toy that looks like a remote and still she prefers the real remote!

  • LOL!!! Yes, my son was like that and now my 9 month old daughter loves it too! I bought my son a toy remote control. He liked it and now my daughter uses it! I think I got it from Target. I would suggest finding something like that for your daughter.

    Hope this helps!
