We use Skype with webcams to call our 2-year-old son's grandparents
and other relatives so that he can see and hear them. He's just
started to figure out that the people on that screen can react to what
he does. It's amazing. Works best if the people on the other end of
the conversation make lots of funny faces and wave their hands around.
The caller who doesn't move around much bores him quickly, he can't
tell it's not a still photo.
Best part about Skype: it's free. Sound quality also beats any other
telephony system I've used. Used to be that you had to use headset
and microphone, but we just talk at the laptop screen and it sounds
great. Works on Mac, Windows, and Linux.
