    Child Lock for Video?

    When my grandson is here I'd like to play some children's videos for him, but he's 15 months and likes to touch the screen. Is there a "lock" I can set while showing movies & videos to keep the iPad task focused?

    I have created an App for this too, it's called "ToddlerVision" and is available on the app store for iphone / Ipad.
    I created it because my 2 year old daughter kept touching the screen as well.

    Once you press play on a video, it needs a special key combination to unlock the screen again so only parents can unlock it. It also has a really handy feature for continuously playing youtube search results so you can search for Nursery Rhymes and then have the app play back the whole list without having to keep selecting the next one...
