Papipo! – a Cellphone for Kids

Just few weeks ago we were talking with my girlfriend of why nobody can make a cellphone just for kids.

It should look like a toy phone, be cheap, fun and easy to use and have some nice games for kids. Well, looks like there is such a phone and it’s called Papipo!. Unfortunately it’s available only in Japan.

Designed by Japanese phone company Willcom and toy vendor Bandai, Papipo! phone comes in 7 different designs – 5 for girls and 2 for boys, Hello Kitty, Tamagochi, and Dragons among them.

Papipo! has a number of interesting games, a camera and it costs only 4800 Yen – that’s about $41 in US dollars.

Now, if only someone in our part of the world will have a bright idea, I think there shouldn’t be that hard to get such phone produced from off the shelf components.
