    There I was at a class with my young daughter when some little boy whips out a rubber Blackberry toy and starts teething on it.

    Robin, being much more intelligent and having much more class than this little boy, would prefer I find her a toy Treo rather than a toy Blackberry device. Does such a thing exist?

    if palm one makes it I'm sure pieces would brake off and pose a choking hazard

    If there were such a toy, 80% of littles ones would have no problems with it. But the other twenty percent would cry and lay on the floor, kicking and screaming about what a piece O' poo it is.

    I think the percentage is 96%. Just for clarity.

    Could be. And of course this 4% would be sure to throw loud enough tantrums at to try and drown out the happy little ones. Never mind the fact that there are plenty of other toys these little brats could pick up and play with.

    Jeez did I land in the TreoHaters forum by mistake? Or is everybody just regressing to 5-month olds?

    Anyway the other 20% would probably cry about wanting a rubber PocketPC. Then once they get one it would just show the BSOD so they would cry even more! Of course maybe rubber means it's crash proof!

    [oops ... on rereading this thread I see only one of the posts was negative, which I guess is a reasonable percentage]

    Sad thing is, most people here are pretty happy with their Treo's. But there is the "squeeky wheel" contingent that chimes in every chance they get.

    oh btw (keeping on topic as The Mighty Tool pointed out), I'm unaware of such a toy.

    OK, I'll be more clear: ON TOPIC! folks.
    off topic talks about treo haters is not what this thread is about and will be removed from now on...

    Just give it time. The toy section at Wal-Mart has toy cell phones and PDAs that look like the real ones. The only difference is they come with nicer carrying cases

    There were two posts between your two posts...the above from one and the other from the tread poster. I find your suggestions to stay on topic to be off topic

    Here's some good advice from a good moderator when I was bent out of shape when the cut dog pic thread turned to a crucify pit bulls thread...

    Threads sometimes get off topic in the off topic section (funny how that works hey?)
    Just enjoy the ride. As for this perticular thread it seems like the vast majority of it is pix of dogs..

    Whats happening with you lately anyway? you seem to be a bit 'on edge'? Are things OK there?


    By the way...no i don't know of a rubber treo but you could use one of thhose rubber skin cases and get a fake plastic treo off ebay and give it to your kid to chew on.

    I'm getting a headache...I feel as though some 5 year old beat me over the head with a rubber Treo.

    I'm not sure I would want to teach my baby to chew on a Treo. My daughters are old enough to know the difference between the toy and the real thing but I could see my niece slobbering all over my Treo.

    Ok I deleted the worst off topic and flame bait in this thread.
    My previous post was not directed towards insertion's post per se, more to the post before him and all the other treo hater related post.

    We are trying to cut down the personal attacks, flame wars etc.

    Wether I have a sense of humor is irrelevant, as a mod it is my task to keep things going and prevent certain things like flame wars.
    If you are not happy with the way I do that feel free to email myself or Marcus, James or any of the other moderators, but this is not a point for further public discussion, especially not in this sub forum.

    I'll give this thread one last chance. Feel free to joke around, but stay on topic, don't post flame bait.

    That would definatly be a choking hazard,,,,


    Sorry hesspaul I've never seen anything like that online or in a toy store. Being a Treo junkie I spend a bit of time online and with 3 daughters I send alot of time in toystores.

    I thought about getting one of those dummy phones for my middle daughter so she could be cool like daddy, or geeky like daddy, not sure
