They’re selling this HelloPhone as something which will keep your tyke away from your own cell phone, but we all know that’s tosh, right? Nothing beats grabbing daddy’s handset and dunking it in the soapsuds. Anyhoo, this puppy accepts parental audio recording (“leave my Blackberry ALONE, y’hear?”) and comes in cutesy colours. $17.99.
This flip phone allows you to record voices, playback messages, and hear songs and sounds. Parents or other loved ones can record their voices so baby can hear them over and and over at the push of a button. After all, we have to train our wee geeks in the fine art of cell phone etiquette, why not start when they’re 18 months old?
