Phone turns your desk into a toy box

Combo gadget doesn't look boring, for a change

Everything USB

As fond as we are of the " Happy Kid " look, we woudn't recommend overdoing it by also getting Axive's "Q Internet Phone." Your kids will think Daddy's desk is a mini-playground and destroy everything on it accordingly.

That aside, we do appreciate the fact that gadget makers are getting more creative with the design of everyday desktop accessories like this, even one that includes a VoIP speakerphone, microphone, stereo speakers and Webcam as this device does, according to Everthing USB. If you're looking for a real combo gadget, though, you might consider the 12-in-1 "Brica ViewArt 1000." But, alas, it doesn't look like anything like a cartoon character .
