Made for toddlers, the VINCI tablet keeps your kids' hands off your iPad

Face it: You love your kids, but you love your iPad more. And despite what people say, that's perfectly fine - assuming you keep your iPad safe from the sharp nails and drooling jaws of your young ones.

Enter the Vinci tablet, a device seemingly built from the ground up for parents uneasy at the thought of sharing their beloved tablet with their fleshy offspring.

Encased in a durable, soft-edged chassis, the Vinci is clearly built with accident-prone kids in mind.

Conscious of the faint possibility that WiFi signals might actually be killing us, manufacturer Rullingnet built the tablet without a WiFi radio. It's also non-toxic and advertising free.

Probably less important for (most) parents are the device's specifications. Running Android 2.2, the Vinici features a 7-inch screen, 512MB of RAM, and a 3MP camera on its back.

Now comes the dicey matter of its price: For $389, parents can nab the less expensive version, which offers three hours of battery life. On the other hand, the $479 version of the tablet can run for 6 hours and comes equipped with a slew of pre-installed software. Either way, it's an expensive kids toy. But perhaps a worthwhile one if you aim to keep your iPad safe.
