    i've found a few things at palmgear.com, but nothing really looks right for this age. it's all too advanced (like MakeFaces) or too childish (like the baby programs). anyone tackled this search before? thanks!

    babydraw 1.2 looked promising, but it's so old that the instructions refer only to graffiti. that makes me nervous.

    i was hoping for something like the Flash games at Fischer-Price's website ( http://www.fisher-price.com/fp.aspx?...oddler&site=us )

    Yeow. You're brave.

    I'm iffy about letting my 9/7/5 year olds hold my Treo. One bit of normal kid behavior (dropping stuff) and my Treo would be history.

    Yes there is, I think the soft wear is made by Osh Kosh.

    well for a one-year-old, the distance to the floor isn't more than 12 inches. :-) And it's really just for those rare situations in which he needs a distraction QUICK! like waiting in a long line at the store, etc.

    Hmmm, not for my one-year-old, who's been walking for almost a month and likes to climb onto anything that she can! But thanks for the idea, although I'm not sure about handing her my Treo, even WITH my insurance plan!

    Ever seen a one year old throw things? Want one of those things to be your Treo? There's a reason toddler toys are made of thick, strong plastic.

    I hope you carry insurance on the Treo, at least.

    Well, my youngest is 20 now, but we used to use the car keys or a few small toys we'd keep in my wife's purse for such occassions.

    I don't think I'd brave my Treo!

    Good luck!

    wow, now i'm not sure if i'm just brave or y'all are paranoid....

    i've let the kid handle the treo (in a case) many, many times (using an alphabet program that locks him out of other apps) without incident. i've drop-kicked all my PDAs from the past decade several times each (accidently, of course), and they've all survived. maybe i've just been lucky...or maybe they're more rugged than you think?

    I trust my 2yo with it more than my almost 11 year old Her nick-name is Techno Baby.

    I just have to watch where i leave it in the house - she finds it, she brings it - even if you are in the shower. OOPS! LOL!!

    I'll have to check out those posted. But my Treo FEELS more rugged than my iPod (30gb Video) - that makes me more nervous.

    My 6 year old loves My Little Tank & Zap. He even worked through a reset yesterday while I was donating blood. I think he's ready for his own.

    I wouldn't let my 3 year old within 5 ft, however. He's the more aggressive of the two.

    My 1yr old grandson dropped hid mommy's brand new tmo MDA in the water dish. OUCH.

    I guess I am one of the foolish brave ones on here.

    I let my 9 and 7 year old boys play games on it only under the following circumstances:

    1. Sitting in the car on a drive. (no fear of it getting damaged even if it is dropped).

    2. No eating and playing with the Treo simultaneously.

    3. Sitting on the carpet at home. No danger of it being dropped.

    4. Absolutely no fighting amongst each other when playing on it, or I just take it away.
