Kids today. They don’t want old-fashioned wood blocks with ABCs and numbers on them. Who wants to learn while you are drooling all over yourself and pooping your diaper? Babies want an iPhone 4S (or an iPad 2). In fact, if they had the strength and coordination, they would snatch yours from your clammy hands and knock you out while they played with it.
Since they can’t, and since iPhones are too expensive for babies, here’s the perfect gift. This wooden iPhone, created by Kyle Bean and Thomas Forsyth. Not that you can buy one at this point. Sadly this is just a cool design – appearing on the cover of the December 2011 issue of Computer Arts magazine. Though I hope it becomes a real toy. Each of the blocks represents an app. How cool is that?
Really, this is a cool toy for the adults, who will allow the kids to play with it from time-to-time. Sure it looks all clean and awesome now. but once you give it to your little ankle-weight, it will soon be covered in drool and snot, and that beautiful wood will be all dinged and dented up with toothmarks. Kids. This is why we can’t have anything nice.
