Ok, we won’t even let our 9-year-old have headsets – they just aren’t good for their ears. And he only just this past month got an iPod Shuffle, and then only because it was to help on the long road trip during our move, and only to be used with an external speaker (an iCat, in this case).
So, you can imagine my shock, dismay, bemusement, and, yes, revulsion, when I saw this product – the Tadpole Headset and Case. The Tadpole is earphones and an iPod case for children – little children – in the Apple store. Note that it is being pitched as a way to let your child listen to their iPod in car, grocery store, doctor’s office, and STROLLER!!
That’s just disgusting.

Of course, if you don’t share my disgust, feel free to check out the Tadpole here.
