Headphones for Your Child

I know so many parents who have lost custody of their iPad to their child.  It’s a great way to keep them entertained and, when used properly, a good educational tool.

Along with sticky screens and run-down batteries, the biggest hassle my parental unit friends have is the noise.  Those horrible songs.  The voices of the cartoons.  Ugh.

Here’s a solution:  headphones designed specifically for kids.  Not only are they sized right but they have built-in volume limited so the little tyke won’t blow his ears out before he discovers the glories of metal.

And for around $30, you won’t freak out if a pair or two falls out of the mini van.

    I think, frankly, most headphones should be volume limited. It's scary how many times I walk by pedestrians and can hear their music clearly.

    No, I would still freak out of they got lost.
