Taiwan has banned children under the age of two from using electronic devices such as iPads, televisions and smartphones.
Parents who allow their young children to play with their gadgets face fines of up to £1,000, in line with a law passed last week.
The new law also states that parents must ensure that under-18s only use electronic products for a 'reasonable' length of time.
Taiwanese lawmakers passed the new legislation last Friday, completely banning parents from allowing their under-twos to use any electronic devices, China's official news agency Xinhua reports.
Meanwhile Taiwanese under-18s are not allowed to 'constantly use electronic products for a period of time that is not reasonable', although the 'reasonable length of time' has not been defined.
The new law means that iPads, smartphones and televisions are now listed alongside cigarettes and alcohol as restricted.
