Locking Keys not screen or mouse

Hi there!
My wife just moved onto Ubuntu after dumping Vista and she loves it! Only thing is that our 10 month old son adores smashing his hands on the keyboard when attempting to talk to his grandparents over Skype. In Vista, we downloaded a small software that locked the keyboard but not the mouse or screen. This locking could be toggled via a system tray icon.

Is there something similar that is available for Linux, specifically Ubuntu 10.4? If anyone knows of a solution, do let me know. It would be much appreciated.
