I just got back from the New York Toy Fair and saw quite a few great items, including this clever little thing called the Talkatoo. It’s a little tag that can record your voice and then attach to your wee one’s backpack or bag. When your kid is upset at Day Care or on a five year journey in the Antarctic, they can simply press the button and hear your soothing voice.
The devices are $17.99 each and come in multiple styles. While it may not seem that cool to us experience gadget nerds, parents who have kiddies with attachment issues will find it a helpful little tool for getting Junior to stop screaming at the door.
Tweens can also use it to share notes with each other when they get too old for love notes from Mommy – as if that could ever happen.
