HappiTaps is a Safe Way for Tots to Play!

If you have a toddler and an iPhone in the home, you know that they really don't mix.  The kid wants to play with the iPhone, but really can't handle playing "nicely" with it.  We discovered a new way for little kids to play with the iPhone that doesn't end up with a cracked screen or tantrums, and it's very engaging!

HappiTaps is a combination of a cute, fuzzy iPhone case that resembles a teddy bear.  It even comes with a little clip to attach it to a car seat or stroller (so you don't lose it!)  When paired with the free app, it becomes a play center for your small child to learn and explore.  The screen becomes a teddy bear face that talks, sings, eats, and more!  There is also a neat mode that lets the kids use the iPhone and HappiTaps as a virtual rattle -- very cool!

My 18-month-old son loves this app.  I admit that the bear can be a bit annoying, so I appreciate that there is a range of settings for how "active" the critter is.  (If you just can't bear to hear the peppy bear voice talking constantly, set him on a less active setting.)  There is even a nap mode that lets your child put the HappiTaps bear down to sleep!

If you're considering an accessory that lets your younger child enjoy your iPhone safely, this soft and cuddly option is a good one.  Learn more at the HappiTaps website or purchase at Step 2!
