Shoving your iPhone at your screaming kid in the backseat is kinda lowest common denominator parenting. But once you pop it into Fisher-Price's colorful Laugh and Learn iCan Play rattle it becomes a whole lot more like a real toy. Better for both you and baby!

While Fisher-Price's Kid-Tough digital camera was already built to withstand the Guantanamo-level torture your average four-year-old dishes out to their toys, the latest model will hold up to 30 minutes of waterboarding too, despite a rounder, slimmer body. The insides have gotten an upgrade as well, with a 1.3MP…
Holy crap, I want this Elmo, and I don't even like Sesame Street. It makes Pleo look like a dumb hunk of plastic.
