Mobile phone stands. I used to think what the heck would anyone need one of those for, sure you mostly use your phone in your hand. How daft was I! These genius little things are pretty much a life essential.
Not wanting a big bulky thing as I want it to be easily transported about in my changing bag I had a look around online and was absolutely shocked at the price some companies are charging for a bit of plastic. Refusing to pay an extortionate price for one I settled for a cute little elephant one from Amazon which cost a whopping £1.10 and free shipping! Yes you heard me right. The price seems to change at times so you may get a bigger bargain by keeping an eye on it. Being shipped from China it did take around 3 weeks for delivery and they also randomly pick the colour themselves (they are available in blue, yellow, green and pink).
Whether I am catching up on some snapchats whilst I do the dishes or entertaining the little ones with a TV Show when out and about, the stand really does what its intended for. Wide enough to fit most smartphones and if you use two of them you can easily use it to prop up an iPad or other tablet.
Small enough to fit into your bag or pocket measuring just 6 x 4 cm this is one nifty little purchase you will thank me for.
