The Island of Misfit Toys

To continue Toy Week, I wanted to tell you the toy L was not into.

I am not sure if there is baby crack in cell phones, but when L sees one, she has eyes for nothing else.  (Kind of like me and a chocolate chip cookie.  They make me a bad person.  I will literally steal one off your plate when you are not looking.  I can't help myself)  She will grab hold of one and not let go!  She cries when it is pried from her fingers.

In order to solve this problem, I kicked into mommy gear and thought I was so smart.  I bought this fake toy phone for her, BUT she was not tricked whatsoever.  She cast away the fake phone like Rudolph on the Island of Misfit Toys!

"L wouldn't let poor fake phone, fake phone, join in any cell phone games."

Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Smilin' Smart Phone

She played with it for maybe 5 seconds.  SO...Against my better judgement, I gave L a real phone.  Before you judge me,  I recently had an upgrade for my phone, so decided to give L my old iPhone.  Within the first few minutes, I realized this phone was not going to last long.  The screen would get cracked in no time.  

"Then one foggy autumn eve, Amazon came to say, Mommy with your phone so bright, won't you buy this case tonight, Sure!"  

I learned about the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Apptivity Case that protects the phone and acts as a teether.  Mine JUST came in and I am taking it out the box as I type.  I will let you know how it goes.  Worth a shot, right?

"Then, all the iPhones loved L, loved L, as she shouted out with glee, yippee.  IPhone, the grand ole' 3G, 3G, you'll be safe from my baby"

Ok, so my story isn't as kid friendly as the Rudolph story.  The fake phone is still on the island of misfit toys and will probably stay there.  Truth hurts folks!

Get an Otterbox Defender!! They're pricy but still way cheaper than a new iphone. It's made my phone nearly toddler-proof!

Ps. Love the blog!!
