I’ve already sung the praises of digital distractions—in moderation—when traveling with young children. But even the best kids’ apps are useless if your toddler keeps pushing the home button and navigating away. Not only is it annoying, but it’s also dangerous for your data. The last thing you want is a rogue preschooler trolling through your email or photo files, accidentally trashing your stuff.
Now there's hope. The BubCap is a stiff, oblong rubber shield that adheres to the home button on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. It’s rigid enough that little digits can’t depress it, but adults can. The BubCap comes in three “strengths:” Regular, Ultra, and Max. Regular is designed to be toddler-proof, while Max claims to be burly enough for older kids and devices with bigger buttons, like the iPad.
