A compelling video produced by The Boston Globe discusses how the iPhone is uniquely intriguing and intuitive to toddlers. From my own personal experience, I can attest to this device being a magnet for my 3 year old son as well as my 1 year old daughter. The shape of the device in addition to the colorful buttons and intuitive interface creates a fascinating toy to be coveted by a child. I’ve had to literally wrestle my phone away from the steely grips of my children at times. And yet, in a crunch, my iPhone has provided a useful distraction for my kids when they are acting up or are immersed in situations which necessitate some sort of amusement to pass the time. Think Doctors office or a restaurant for example. Software developers are keenly aware of this and have made a concerted effort to provide Children’s applications to Apple’s App Store for use on the iPhone and iPhone Touch. So in essence, your beloved iPhone has somehow evolved into the mobile family entertainment center. Just perfect.
