Toy for young child Printer Friendly Version
This is a fairly simple idea for children at an age when they appreciate rattles. The toy would have two parts: a cyllindrically spiral track about a foot long and an inch or two wide; and a moving piece that is also cyllindrically spiral that would fit over the track and be able to slide along it, rotating as it does so. The moving piece would slide down the track through gravity. The track could then be inverted to get the piece to move again. Various color patterns and noise making features could be added to create further interest.

Premanufactured Indoor Blanket Tent Printer Friendly Version
Imagine all your child's dreams coming true with the indoor blanket tent. You could use it too, for a cozy night. It could come in your choice of fabrics and fabric designs and be made of blankets or comforters. It would have a regular, hard, plastic tent structure to hold it together and you could get rid of all those chairs and old blankets you used to build the tents out of. You could zip it up and even include a sleeping bag design into it and built in stuffed animals that would detach for added comfort. It would stay warm and dark and you could read scary stories with a book light or flash light like all kids dream of. Or add an overhead night light.
This idea comes from my past and I was never able to build a proper tent from a common blanket and now, you don't even need to try. Just get a blanket/comforter tent for yourself and you're all set. If your children wont sleep in bed(s) then this is the best alternative. They could have all their own privacy and feel really grown up and have adventures without leaving the house or even leaving their rooms.
Many children have wild imaginations and love to think they are somewhere else unsupervised and if they can feel that way in safety then you and your children are all happier. I think we need adult sizes too, because I think I want one too! How about you? You can add all the extra features of todays outdoor tents into this indoor version as well like, mosquito netting, mesh roofs, or anything special to make them and you feel grown up. Add that jungle theme music or watch your portable DVD with your favorite movie or cartoon and the kids will be busy for days. You wont see them until they graduate high school or college!

Car seat gripes! Printer Friendly Version
Our local law has just passed that a child up to 8 years old and 80 lbs must ride in a childs car seat / booster seat. Hello?!? Has it occured to anyone that in some vehicles such as my SUV that children that old sitting in the back seats that their heads will hit the ceiling of the car? That the car seat sits them too high? So far I don't know of a car seat that will fit securely in the back seat which is angled more than the middle ones. Can't someone invent a way to modify seat belts that would fit older children properly? Otherwise legally we are about to have a third grader who will need to haul his car seat in and out of school every time his afternoon plans don't include mom's picking him up.
Reward: safe children without the hassles.
