An anti-spying diary for kids

Requires 'musical pass code' to open

Summit Products

Gone are the days of the old-fashioned lock-and-key diary. Kids should have some privacy rights too, especially where nosy siblings are concerned. So even though this item isn't brand-new, Crave felt that it was timely to cite it in today's era of pervasive household surveillance .

The "Keep Safe Diary" (ages 8 and up) requires a "musical pass code" to open and includes a secret compartment opposite the notepad. It's telling that this item, in addition to the usual retail outlets, is also listed at the Museum Spy Store. Can a biometric version be far off?
