    Smile Leapfrog unveils 'baby BlackBerry' for tots

    Advertisement





    cnet.com: There's good news for parents who are tired of having their toddlers getting their grubby little paws on their BlackBerrys and other smartphones while they're not looking. Leapfrog has announced a product called the Text & Learn or--as it's sure to be known in the blogsphere--the "baby BlackBerry."

    Now kids can mimic their parents and send text messages and check their schedules at all hours of the day. The device, which is a bit bigger than your average BlackBerry, is geared toward preschoolers who are just learning to spell and includes games that focus on spelling and basic computer skills.

    Virtual pal Scout is onboard to help; youngsters can exchange text messages with the little guy and check Scout's planner for meeting conflicts (OK, I'm kidding a bit there), and explore in a "pretend" browser mode. Other learning activities include letter matching, shape identification, and QWERTY keyboard navigation.

    I wish the screen was in color just like the real BB. Even babies can tell if the screen is in color or not... thats my #1 gripe with kid's toy laptops too the screens are B&W and so small

    Ok, honestly how many of us are going to get one for our kids, almost 4 and 6? I am probably going to as each of them would love it.

    Hahahaha, I love it! My 5 year old actually sends real messages on mine, I think he'd know the difference.
