An easy way to ensure toddlers don’t randomly yank their shoes off is to put a squeaker in there, turning every step into a symphony of fun sounds. Or, at least, fun to the child. To parents it can get annoying real fast, which is why Ikiki was smart enough to put on/off switches in its toddler shoes.
Researchers now have a hypothesis for the reason your 4-year-old niece insists on telling you the same story over and over every time she sees you. Alas, there are no new findings on how not to look bored.
Say it with me now: Hahahawwwwwhahah. This awesome toddler is named Jude and this video shows what he's actually doing when his parents shut off the lights and try to make him sleep. It's punishingly adorable.
Aww, remember what life was like as a 2-year-old? Toddling around, barely able to keep your spit from dripping out of your mouth and then not having the capacity to wipe it up. Eating mush. And always, always, chasing after Dadddddd-yyyyy.
I know many deluded parents will get their toddler the Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Apptivity Case thinking it's the first step toward raising a millionaire App developer, but come on. Gut check. The kid just likes the shiny shiny, right?
Parents know the horror of finding their two-year old with an iPad. One wrong move and your tablet will hit the floor and your toddler will run away. That's why there's VINCI Tab, a tablet for the wee little ones.
For some toddlers today the venerable "toys of choice" are not dolls or blocks, but iPhones. Experts worry their development is hampered by this "screen time." I'm inclined to argue every generation has its vices and parents need to parent.
When a one-year-old has difficulty with movement, it impairs brain development, since researchers say babies form neural connections through exploration of their environment. How do you get around this? With a bad-ass robotic chair.
It's usually considered irresponsible to leave a toddler (or as I like to call them, walking babies) alone at the helm of a massive backhoe. But that's no problem with this new breed of Superbabies.
A 3-year-old New Zealand girl, bored in the early hours of the morning, hopped on her parents' computer and, via auto-logins, managed to buy a used mechanical excavation machine for around $15,000.
With toddlers being more tech savvy than many adults these days, it only makes sense that manufacturers use netbooks to target this demographic. Case in point, Bandai's Gachapin and Mukku-themed lineup.
