Is your child too young to trust them with your iPad? Consider buying them the new anaPad, which looks and feels like the real thing, but is completely kid-proof. The anaPad is a children’s magnetic white board made in the exact dimensions of an iPad. It comes with an erasable marker and yes, a few apps too. Of course, these apps aren’t those you download from the App Store. Rather, they are app-style magnets. Its creators recommend not buying the anaPad for children under three because of the magnets. However, as a parent of a four-year-old, I'm not sure the three-and-over set would even want to use the pad and get bored with it. Of course, that is just my opinion. If you’re interested in buying an anaPad, we’d suggest you do so soon. There is no telling when its creator receives a cease and desist letter from Apple over intellectual property law infractions. The anaPad is available for $30 via Etsy. What do you think? Leave your comments below.
