Usually we’d think twice before entrusting a toddler with our expensive iPod. But the Tadpole by ifrogz may change our mind.

Two silicone handles make it easy for small hands to safely grip the player, transforming it into a portable form of entertainment and distraction. In the car, on the subway, at the doctor’s office, or the supermarket, your kids’ favorite shows and music are loaded up for viewing and listening anywhere. The company also offers kid size headphones as a replacement for the ubiquitous white earbuds. To protect your little one’s ears, set (and lock!) the volume control before handing it over.

Find them here. The Tadpole is $19.99, add headphones for an extra $14.90.
