Kids love to mimic what they see their parents doing and toy makers have just the gadget to let them pretend they are keeping up in our fast-paced world.

You see, toy makers have taken notice of our addiction to the Blackberry and created a kid’s version called “Text and Learn.” It has a calendar, games and even text messages.

Dr. Carol Endo, a pediatrician at Legacy Emanuel Children’s Clinic, is a bit skeptical of the new toy, which will be in stores in a couple of weeks.

“This is a pretty elaborate game for ages three and up,” she said. “And it certainly presents things in a fun and attractive way.”

This obviously isn’t the first electronic gadget to make it into the hands of children but Dr. Endo worries that too much exposure to high-tech toys can stifle a child’s imagination. She said if a toy like this becomes a substitute for interacting with people, then it’s time to put it away.
