At ten-months-old, Mazzy is too young for headphones but I imagine as soon as she hits the age when she's interested in things like Dora the Explorer and Yo Gabba Gabba and whatever else is positioned to destroy all signs of intelligent adult life in my household, I will want to throw a pair of headphones on her PRONTO to keep my sanity in check. Also, headphones seem like just the thing that might make long car trips bareable or come in handy during extreme restaurant emergencies, i.e. Mazzy's done eating and ready to hurl herself out of her booster seat but I've spent the better part of dinner making sure she was properly fed so I've only just begun eating. Pop Shrek XVI: Happily Ever After Life in the DVD player, put on her headphones, and VOILA! I am now free to enjoy my cold crabcake appetizer.
All of this is why a bunch of parents, who also happened to be audio engineers at Griffin (the same company that brought us The Woogie), invented MyPhones, a premium set of over-the-ear headphones designed specifically for kids. The most distinctive feature of MyPhones is that they have a built-in volume control which won't rise above 85 decibels, the sound level limit that pediatric safety agencies deem most ideal to keep young ears free from damage. It's because of this safety feature that MyPhones can be used by kids as young as 3 years old. Cue fantasy road trip!
Another great feature is that they come with interchangeable and customizable ear shell caps so your child can use the provided templates to create their own designs and have a totally unique pair of cans. Everything comes packed in a reuseable carrying case which is also customizable for a value of $39.99.
Now for the really exciting part. You can potentially have a brand new MyPhones headset for free, if you enter my first ever giveaway!

OK, I’ll bite! These look a lot nicer than the cheap-o ones I just bought for Ella!
That’s weird, Hazy just got a British accent and told me, “I want one of those fancy headphones and I want it NOW, mummy!”. So name your price, Mr. Wonka.
You mean I DON’T have to hear Elmo’s voice?!
Doesn’t hurt to give it a try… but I do wanna be that lucky sonofabitch… 😉
I plan on wearing them around the children. A nice break from putting my fingers in my ears and singing lalalala.
Sounds like a dream!!! Pick me, pick me!!! Pleaseeee 😉
Mase would looove those!!!!
Ok I kinda need those! We are going on a very long flight(s) to visit the girls grandparents in the not too far future. Watching movies or listening to music on my iPod is how I’m hoping we’ll get through it. I’d really love to not have to hold my earbuds into their ears the whole flight. And if I win? I get to only have to buy one pair of these- which are supremely cute. Very cool find.
No, my child’s ears are the most precious. Pick me.
Sign me up.:)
I’d like to win these headphones for my daughter. She listens to her DVD player in the car WAY too loud!
I would love the headphones for my daughter she needs some for her leapster.
This would be great for my God-daughter for when her mother needs a little quiet, homework time.
I’d love to win one of these for my son, pink or not 😀
It comes with three sets of ear pieces- one pink, one blue and one the very gender neutral orange:) There are also templates to create your own ear piece art.
This would be perfect for my 4yo. She never wants to wear headphones and these just might work!
I could really use these!
Our five-year old son’s Ipod has a volume lock, but he has borrowed my MP3 player and turned the volume up WAY to loud. Right now he uses a $3 pair of earbuds that are too big for his ears. He would be grateful for these headphones if we win.
Great sanity saver
a fun headset to own
I would love to have this headset.
These would be great to use when travelling.
Hope I win.
I would love to win for my daughter. we go through headphones like crazy, would like for her to have her own and we can use the grown up headphones for my husband and me!!!!
Would be nice to win these.
I wouldn’t have to worry about my daughters hearing in these. She is always having the volume up and I always saying you are going to hurt your hearing in those and she has to put them up for awhile..With these I wouldn’t have to worry so much.
My daughter could really use these. Would start off my shopping for Christmas.
Well, of course “my phones” are funny!! 🙂 You have really made them sound irresistible. That company will be asking you to do tons of giveaways for them. This may be your first, but it’s not your last!!
Perfect! My son does not enjoy MY singing.
We have wireless headphones for the DVD players in the car, but these would be good for the portable DVD player we take on the plane. Milo would love them!
Crossing my fingers!!

These headphones are great! I would love to win them for my friend’s little daughter. We’re always going to loud music events and I worry about her poor little ears. These are such a cute solution to a potentially damaging hearing problem. Love these!
Thanks Mommy Shorts!
