It’s funny to think of the toys that you used to play with as a kid and compare them to what children are playing with nowadays. I see toddlers nomming on smartphone cases, and ten year old kids playing Angry Birds. Toys were not nearly as breakable as they are now, and if you want to keep your kids entertained without having to drop a couple hundred bucks to replace your phone, then you’ll want to take come precaution.
The Ubooly is an interactive plush that surrounds your iPhone or iPod in squishy safety. The face of this little orange creature is the screen, and can tell jokes and stories, play games, or talk to your children. It is far less evil than other creatures similar to it, such as the Furby. It works in tandem with a free app, and will become more intelligent the more it is used. You’ll have to shell out about $30 to get one of these, and it is best used for ages 4 and up.
