The Next Big Thing?

There's a huge market in iPad apps for kids. Tablet-owning parents are discovering that Apple's device is good both for keeping children amused alone, and for using together. Meanwhile, iPad is also bringing a dash of interactivity to e-books.

Publisher Random House is hoping to blend these two trends. It's signed a deal with a design agency called Smashing Ideas, in order to make a series of 'book-based children's apps' for mobile devices. iPad, yes, but presumably iPhone and other smartphones too.
