Fisher Price Introduces Baby Seat With iPad Holder – Too Much Too Soon?
Many say this is too much technology, too soon, and ask; how young is too young for an iPad?
Experts suggest that babies should be entertained and stimulated by their surroundings. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children under the age of two should spend time interacting with parents, family or caretakers…not screens. Child care experts also worry that iPads will become over-used baby sitters.
A recent survey conducted by Common Sense Media found that 38% of children under the age of two have used some sort of mobile device for watching videos, playing games or other media related activities.
Fisher Price defends its’ product, and in on their website description, the toy giant promises “Soothing, entertaining and technology all in one grow-with-me seat for baby! Lock your iPad device inside the case to protect from dribbles and drool.” You can find the Apptivity Seat on their website for $80.
