Fame or Shame Game #6: The DVD Baby Stroller
This is the time where I introduce you to a product and you tell us why its inventor is destined for fame or shame. Feel free to be serious or sarcastic.
Step 1. Buy the Baby Beehavin’ Stroller DVD Pouch. It debuted this month at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas.
Step 2. Attach the pouch to your rear-facing stroller. It’s compatible with Fisher-Price, Peg-Perego, Bugaboo, Quinny, Britax, Uppa Baby, Baby-Trends Snap N’ Go and more.
Step 3. Insert your portable DVD player of choice, orient the screen for optimum viewing by your baby and hit ‘play.’
The inventor explains: "This will stimulate and entertain your baby endlessly. [...] So the next time you take your baby shopping, to a restaurant, or anywhere, the Stroller DVD Pouch is all you will need to keep your ‘Baby Beehavin.’
Meanwhile, the Watch ‘N Stroll by Sylver Concepts LLC is a competing product for forward-facing strollers.
Step 1. Clamp the Watch ‘N Stroll tray to the front of the stroller. It fits Maclaren, Bugaboo, Graco and other lightweight to medium strollers.
Step 2. Attach your portable DVD player of choice with the use of built-in straps.
Step 3. Adjust the viewing angle of the screen and hit ‘play.’
This product is the brainchild of the company’s president "who realized a market need when her infant daughter could not continue
viewing her favorite DVD on a portable DVD player after a car ride to
the local mall."
There you have it. I am physically restraining my wife so that you folks get the first word on these products. Please, dear Thinga-readers, to tell us… fame, or shame?
