Kids love gadgets that often require headphones or earbuds, but there’s the possibility of hearing damage from the high volumes that are possible with these gadgets. Some devices have software features that allow you to limit the volume levels, but not all do. These kid-sized Crayola-branded earbuds and headphones from Griffin protect your child’s hearing with a “built-in volume limiter circuit that caps listening levels at 85 decibels.” The Crayola MyPhones earbuds come in official Crayola colors of Caribbean Green, Purple Pizazz, Blue Berry, or Cotton Candy; their storage case looks like a crayon, and it stores the earbuds and extra eartips. (Notice that one earbud looks like the flat end of the crayon and the other looks like the pointed end.) The earbuds are $14.99. The Crayola MyPhones on-ear headphones are available in blue/green or pink/purple. They have cushioned earpieces, and they come with 3 Crayola markers and 40 stickers that can be used to decorate the headphones. The headphones are $24.99.
