Lucy and Tillie have a cell phone that they share. At least, they USED to have a cell phone.
Technically, they still have a cell phone; it just doesn’t work terribly well anymore.
The girls were over at my cousin’s house for a playdate with her kids. The girls went to take the dog for a walk, and since they were going around the block, one of them stuck the phone in her pocket just in case something happened and they needed to call.
The dog returned from his walk happy, tongue hanging out of his mouth. The girls were a different story. At some point, the phone had fallen out of the pocket it was stashed in and hit the pavement, shattering the screen. They were equal parts defensive that it wasn’t their fault, sad it was broken, and concerned they’d get in trouble.
It’s a familiar story, unfortunately. A couple months ago the same thing happened to me.
I was outside playing with the kids on the front sidewalk. My phone slipped out of my pocket and the screen shattered upon impact with the ground.
There were two big differences between my incident and the girls:
- I thought I was being careful. My phone had a clear screen protector and a hard case around it for protection.
- My phone costs significantly more to repair ($200-300) or replace ($600-800).
Despite those major differences, there’s one thing both accidents had in common:
I really wish we had purchased SIMPLR™ Product Protection Plan!

What we do know is that with their next cell phone, we’ll definitely be getting a SIMPLR™ Product Protection Plan. They’re kids. Accidents happen, and it’s all part of the learning process for them. But for us as parents, we’re wise enough to know that it pays to plan ahead and purchase a little peace-of-mind before we need it.
It's almost like they knew exactly what I was thinking (and my love of pirates) when they made this cute little video:
