Take control of the TV by giving your young children their own remote

Worried about your children watching "undesirable" programming? Looking for an alternative to the complicated V-chip installation? Trying to avoid wrapping a lock and chain around your TV? Then you may want to check out the "Weemote."

Attractive and kid-friendly, the Weemote is easy to operate and designed for children ages 3 to 8. Parents can control the channels they want their children to see by programming the Weemote to accept only those channels parents deem acceptable. And yes, the Weemote is as easy for parents to program as it is for children to use.

But don't expect the Weemote to prevent kids from walking up to the TV set and changing channels the old-fashioned way. It's simply another tool that makes it harder for children to gain access to violent or adult-themed television content.

The Weemote costs $29.95 and can be purchased at
