‘For those wondering, it’s too small to fit a tablet/iPad, but easily fits two Xbox controllers,’ she wrote. 

Dozens of parents said this is the perfect solution to keep screen time minimal at home, while others revealed they are getting this for Christmas. 

‘[Use it on] Christmas Day, one designated phone for photos,’ one joked.

Another added: ‘I need this for my kids, especially when the boys are in trouble.’

One mother said she needed this product because she always ends up forgetting where she hid her children’s devices.

Another woman joked: ‘Will lock my chocolate up in one of these for the week.’ 

And it’s not just keeping kids away from screens. Many adults said the product will come in handy for dinner parties and social gatherings. 

‘I’m definitely buying this for a few people I know at the get togethers,’ one woman wrote,’ while one added: ‘Funny I thought the same…There would be a lot of angry and extremely lost humans.’

While one woman said she’d lock her husband’s phone away because he’s always ‘doing business’ when he’s not working in the office.
