If you have ever experienced a five-year-old’s enthusiasm for the Disney movie Cars, be afraid be very afraid, because Appmates Cars toys have hit the shelves and you’ll never be able to guarantee your iPad’s safety again. You thought your kids were attracted to your expensive piece of tablet beauty before, well prepare to have it disappear with increasing frequency.

Disney has recently released a series of Cars figurines that are meant to be driven across the screen of your iPad. I’m sure there are plenty of other things you’d rather imagine than your toddler driving dinkys across your pricey tablet, but I’ll press on. The toys interact with the downloadable Cars 2 app that lets kids race and complete missions.

The app is free and the toys are cheap, so good luck explaining why your child can’t have one. Parents should brace themselves, because playtime innovations like the Appmates Cars toys will most likely grow in popularity.  You might want to consider becoming a two tablet household.
