My daughter loves playing with anything that my wife or I have. My wallet, hair brush (yes I do occasionally use one), a bag of crisps, anything at all - she seems to see at as her role in life to take it off me and test that I wont be able to break it by trying to do so herself - and luckily so far most things seem to be both impact and slobber resistant. She will crawl over to me and demand I give her my cell phone on sight - but thats OK. I can lock it to stop her phoning the first entry in my contacts list (a life risk if your name begins with A!) The chances of her phoning anyone at all from the house phone is slim, but that locks too.
The TV remote is another story. She loves trying to destroy that perhaps more than everything else, perhaps at least in part because I am more reluctant to give it to her. She is more than happy to record small sections of Waybuloo or change the channel to something that even she doesn't want to watch and then moan that she can no longer see Iggle Piggle. She even loves to launch it across the room if I ask for it back so that I have to actually get up to prevent myself watching the dross that fills most TV channels during her waking hours.
I can't believe that she is the only child that loves to ruin their parent's TV watching. Surely if house phones can have a lock button on them then TV remotes can too. Is it too much to ask? Please Sky, set a trend for lockable remotes and you will make countless parents happy.
