Look Daddy! Design for Kids. Perfectly reasonable debates continue about the relative wisdom of giving young children laptops and mobile devices. We’re less inspired by the long-term consequence and more by the immediate appeal of distracting our own child from trying to grab and slobber all over the pricey devices Mr. Jobs made for us grown-ups.

Introduced last month at CES 2012, the XO-3 Tablet pictured above is a lot more sophisticated than true toddler tablets like say, the VTech InnoTab. The XO-3 was built by Yves Behar to hold up for the long haul, a necessity commissioned by the One Laptop Per Child project after Behar’s original XO sold out. 

If you’re mesmerized in child-like wonder by every design detail from fundamental to high-tech, you can take part in a talk where all intersect. Product Placement have curated a new installment in their bimonthly series. Tonight Product Placement at MAD: Design for Kids will feature DwellStudio founder and creative director Christiane Lemieux, lighting and furniture designer David Weeks and Rockwell Group principal and studio leader Barry Richards, delving into their respective creative processes.

Product Placement at MAD: Design for Kids / February 16, 2012 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM @ Museum of Arts + Design / 2 Columbus Circle, NYC
