Let me show you a device in our home that is getting used quite frequently. It’s called The Zhip, and it is helping keep Darah entertained while traveling, and keeping mom and dad from worrying incessantly about whether or not Darah is breaking our smart phones!
The Zhip is a device that will attach onto any smart phone or iPod touch so that you can create a hands-free viewing environment. It is the only device on the market with a 3 inch retractable cord, and that’s important because that is what allows you to turn most any surface into a safe viewing area.
For instance, if Darah is in her stroller and really wants to play on my phone, I can simply connect it to the stroller so that if (WHEN) she drops the phone, it won’t actually drop to the ground, either breaking or dropping without me realizing it and then being lost.
Since we don’t have a portable DVD player (and I have NO interest in buying one more expensive gadget), I will be using this on our upcoming plane trips to play downloaded movies for Darah. We an easily create a tv monitor for her on the back of the plane seat!
The video below quickly walks you through all the ways that this product is useful. We are certainly glad to have it, and if you have kids who love to play with your phones, then I think this is a must-have! It retails for $14.95.
