Look at your little guy being so polite and taking turns on the swing set. Well done, Mom. Don’t you think young Mr. Generous deserves a few minutes of playtime with your iPod as a reward?
Don’t worry about the 4,392 precious songs you have stored there; the iFrogz Tadpole case converts your grown-up media player into a pint-size but well-protected entertainment center.
The thick silicone coating cocoons your prized possession, and big handles make it easy for toddlers to grip. Add a plastic overlay to shield your screen and customize the click-wheel with a graphic insert. Matching earphones designed to fit little noggins complete the package. Upload cartoons and kidlet tracks, then savor the ensuing moments of quiet.
