the world they live in. As technology becomes a bigger part of
everyday life, it makes sense that even the youngest members
of the family are interested in taking part too. The Apptivity Case
provides a safe way for babies to play and learn from babyfriendly
apps or look at photographs without the worry of them
breaking the phone… or making surprise phone calls!
Parents can simply open their baby-friendly app and slot their
iPhone or iPod Touch behind the safe screen to stop their baby
from accessing files and the home button. The durable case comes
with chunky handles, and there are rattles on each side and a mirror
on the back to keep baby busy when parents need their phone back.
The Apptivity Case is available from all good retailers and retails for
Compatible with iPhone 1G, 3G, 3GS, 4G and iPod Touch 2G, 3G and 4G.
