Any parent knows that irrespective of what engaging and exciting toys you buy for your children, they will always be more interested in your mobile phone or tablet computer. It's an inescapable fact of modern day parenting. With this in mind, toy firm Little Tikes has revealed a range of iPhone-friendly toys which can connect with your iOS devices.
The iTikes toys include a keyboard, map, microscope and an art canvas, all of which can be used as stand-alone toys. But it's when you add an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running a free iTikes app, that the fun really begins and the toys gain additional (and considerably more high-tech) functionality.
For example, without an iOS device the iTikes Keyboard is a typical child's keyboard which can be used to make noise, play along to built-in songs and record musical masterpieces. With an iOS device (an iPad, iPhone 3 or newer, or an iPod Touch 4) learning games teach little musicians to read notes, hear pitch, sight read music or watch visualizations.
