Cool idea I heard and I am going to try it.
If you have a clingy kid, especially when you are busy or on the phone...
Keep an emergency PHONE
Distract-a-box above your fridge. When you are on the phone, take down
the 'new toy box' for them to play with during phone time. Put i back up
on the fridge when you hang it. It helps!
You can fill it with new puzzles and toys from the dollar store. Put in a play phone so they can pretend they are talking to. You can have separate boxes for different age group depending on your babies.
