Your little one loves your phone. Buy this case!,
This review is from: Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Case for iPhone & iPod Touch Devices (Toy)
* Supports all version of iPhone and all iPod Touch 2G and up.
* Little ones can play with little risk of device damage
* Mirror on the back
* Opened with a coin
* Soft silicone backing keeps device flush to case front
* Thin plastic protects screen while allowing touch functions to work, but is flimsy and should not be given to child without the device installed.
* May work with a case or cover, but depends on the device and case/cover type
* Home button can be completely disabled, but if it's not, it is not super-easy for little ones to accidentally hit the home button.
* Doesn't interfere with audio (at least for my iPod Touch 4G)
* Cannot access volume buttons or power button on top.
* I say it's a great deal, definitely buy!

Thank you for this video!!! I have been looking for a way to lock my phone because my one year old loves to press home button and turn off video, and gets really mad but keeps doing it!! The old ipod video has a lock button, but they discontinued it :(

Does this case work with the Sprint iphone 4s?
In reply to an earlier post on Jul 21, 2012 7:36:06 PM PDT
Yes it does. The iPhone 4S has the same dimensions no matter what your carrier is. The 4S will likely not fit into this enclosure if it has another case on it, so keep that in mind.

I have a 2 year old. Any suggested apps?

Search the App Store for Tabtale. They have quite a collection of free storybook and game apps that are great for that age range. You can find the publisher online at http://tabtale.com/

You may also benefit from iOS 6's new feature called Guided Access. It allows you to block the home button and touch response on the screen. I did a two-minute tutorial on using it here: http://youtu.be/7RHh5MkComc

Does NOT suppoer iPhone5 as I discovered to my dismay

Very true. At the time this review was posted, the iPhone 5 did not exist. Sorry for the confusion. Will update.

The public has not been informed of the dangers of wifi radiation, especially for children. Cell phones send and receive radio frequency radiation.
In a letter dated August 2013, The American Academy of Pediatrics urged the FCC and FDA to reassess radiation standards for cell phones and other wireless products and the adoption of standards that are protective of children and reflect current use patterns. It stated the "current FCC standards do not account for the unique vulnerability and use patterns specific to pregnant women and children. It is essential that any new standard for cell phones or other wireless devices be based on protecting the youngest and most vulnerable populations to ensure they are safeguarded throughout their lifetimes."

Wireless devices such as cell phones, iPod touches, wifi routers and base stations, iPads, Bluetooth devices, wifi enabled computers, and even DECT cordless phones and DECT baby monitors all use radio frequencies that are in the range of microwave radiation (300 MHz to 300 GHz.) You may hear people use the term microwave radiation when describing RF radiation pertaining to such devices. An AM/FM radio is not a source of microwave radiation, since the radio frequency range is lower.
Barrie Trower is a microwave radiation expert who started working in the field in the 1960s. He's taught advanced physics and physiology, and has educated doctors and scientists on this issue. He says "What should be happening is that you should be measuring the amounts of radiation in the room and seeing if it is safe for children. But I can tell you without even looking, it isn't. Because unlike medication, where there is a safe level for children, they have an adult's dose and a child's dose, there is no safety level for microwave radiation for children. Not one. And it is my job as scientific advisor, I read, I translate papers from all around the world, and I have never, ever, no matter which country I've lectured in, which paper I've read, I have never, ever seen a single scientist brave enough to produce a safety level of microwave radiation for a child. There isn't one that exists, and I'll tell you why. Because children do not have our immune system, they're not developed. Their bones are soft. The microwaves penetrate very easily. Inside their bones they are producing stem cells, which make their immune systems and all other parts of their body. Their skulls are thin. There is a whole myriad of things which can go wrong. And children absorb more radiation than adults because they are smaller. They are nearer the wavelength, so they act as aerials. There is not a single safety level of microwaves for children. Not one."
In 2011, the World Health Organization classified radio frequency radiation as a possible carcinogen.
