Once Upon a Time, a Book and an iPhone Met...S

If I ever have kids, odds are that they'll turn out to be gadget-obsessed bookworms. But even if they don't, we'd probably spend a few afternoons flipping through these interactive iPhone-powered picture books together, giggling in delight at the stories.

Dubbed Phonebooks, these neat little books combine with your iPhone to create a fun experience at every page turn. And while I rail against using iPhone apps for parenting purposes, this is an extraordinarily cute and age-appropriate way for your lil' one to play around with an iPhone. [Japan Trends via Dvice]
