A remote just for the kids

Limited programming, big buttons

Be honest: Can you work all the buttons on your TV remote? If your household is anything like ours, you may well have four or five of them to master.

A company called Fobis Technologies has distilled the functions to their simplest forms with their line of "Weemotes" aimed at children (not to be confused with the homonymous " Wiimote .") But we frankly think the concept--and perhaps these products--could well find a market among addled adult viewers like us as well.

The Weemote can be programmed for up to 10 channels, as Chip Chicklets notes, so it could be a convenient alternative to parental blocking systems that we'll probably never figure out anyway. The kids will like the bright colors and button shapes too.
