If your toddler is anything like mine, you try to avoid giving them your iPhone at all costs. My toddler is not particularly rough with the device but he has a bad habit of rearranging or deleting my apps which is rather frustrating when I’ve just spent hours sorting them out (yes, I do have that many apps!). The new b-lock Case for iPhone, designed by Australian-based father-of-two and Toddler Lock Designs CEO Matthew Parry, is a surefire way to keep my toddler in the app I chose for him and to keep him away from my icons.
Priced at a very reasonable US$14.99 and available for the iPhone 4/4S, this innovative case comes in black or white and is made from high-quality polycarbonate. Its main feature is the guard over the home button which is conveniently stored on the back of the case and can be removed to slip over the home button when required, hence disabling it from little fingers. The guard is quite solid which ensures the home button cannot be pressed at all while it is in place, not even by an adult. Should you happen to lose the cover that comes with the case, you can purchase spares direct from the Toddler Lock Designs website for US$7.99 for a 3-pack.
The b-lock Case is not only a handy accessory, it’s also a relatively stylish and sturdy case and would be suitable to use as your main iPhone case, eliminating the need to switch cases whenever your child wants to use your phone. Accompanying the case is a free app titled The Toddler Lock App which allows children to flick through the pictures and videos already stored on the phone all without being able to leave the app.

The other day my toddler managed to remove all of the icons in my iPhone dock and I was frantic trying to find a way to get them all back when I found them on the very last page of apps. This case is a must-have if this scenario sounds familiar to you!
