tot phones

In case you're still struggling with what to get your 3-year-old for the holidays, what about a new cell phone?

A mobile phone for toddlers is being launched in Asia. Here's a picture at right. The big-buttoned phone allows parents to program in the numbers of up to 200 friends, and those of mom and dad, before handing the cute device over to the tyke.

Forget the fact that toddlers are basically incapable of phone conversations or the need to make them -- but what do you think about starting kids on the cell phone habit so early in life?

  • i know that my kid will not have a phone at that age i don’t even think that they need phones till there like 15 or 16 when they can help pay the bill. There are way to many kids out there that have phones and that is all they do is talk or text there friends. We need to get back to talking to real people. What is going on in this world that we want to give a 3 year old a phone most 3 year olds don’t even know 300 people. And they can’t even talk that well this is so crazy>

  • who cares what they are doing in asia. think about the quality of products we get from china... they have no influence on products i buy my toddler. in fact i specifically did not bid on an ebay item once i realized it would be shipped from an asian country. does it really even directly effect us? i could care less what they do
