    It doesn't lock permanently, just for 1 minute.

    You can turn that off so that the passlock can be out in incorrectly unlimited times. Also if it does lock it usually has a time limit. Definitely put a lock on it.

    I searched ages ago and found a product called a BubCap. It's a hard sticker that goes over the home button so a toddler can't press it but an adult can. It works great.

    Yup, you can get a thick plastic sheet thing for the screen.
    Fisher price makes an iPhone case for toddlers, where you can lock your phone in and they can play baby apps without fear of damaging the phone.
    It also has an option to lock the home button
