Sony RM-KZ1 Remote Control is Designed for Kids, Looks the Part

If you’ve got children, and they’re not too busy coloring on the walls, then you’ve probably noticed they like to take the TV remote control and have their way with it. If you’ve got one of the standard issue ones, then it’s probably not that big of a deal. But, if you’ve managed to get one of those universal remote controls, featuring plenty of knobs and touchscreens, then you’ve probably been busy trying to keep it out of the grips of the little wanderers. Well, Sony has a solution for you.

The RM-KZ1 may not have a name that anyone would love, but the design is pretty simple. The company created it specifically for kids, as if you couldn’t already tell just by looking at it. And, it’s designed to take the abuse that comes along with being a small gadget in the hands of a curious toddler. The controller is splash-proof, which means that even if your kids start drooling all over it, the remote should keep on working. It also has programmable buttons.

What’s best, though, is the “volume limiting” feature, which prevents your child from turning up or down the volume by three levels within 30 seconds. So, no more watching your volume level sky rocket to the top of the meter. The controller is available right now in Target locations across the nation, and it will only cost you $18.
