Back Seat Front Seat Tube
A simple tube that the lone parent uses to dole out bits of food or small toys, even drinks, using the patented "nipple end"
Sure the arm works most of the time, but not so well in a
bigger car, or in a standard. The tube mounts either of the
front seats, and arcs to the mouth/ hand area of the small
child. This way, animal crackers, apple juice or a well lubed
barbie can slide to the kid in the amounts you prefer,
shameless demands lil' Saddam.
||Can we have an illustration?
||Toss the Animal Crackers at the kids from the front seat (bonus points if you hit em).. They'll eventually find it and eat it. As for the apple juice part, why don't you buy juice boxes. They seem to be just the right size and I think its easier than pouring apple juice in a "tube" down the kids gullets. Just a thought..
||When the trip is long and the child is very young, the
juice box becomes a water gun, and the bottle just hits
the floor. If the diameter of the bottle were just smaller
than the tube except on the backseat terminal end, the
bottle would slide down to the child and stop, nipple
extended. Also, there would have to be a lever to tilt the
mechanism up to retrieve the bottle, and a
neutral position so the thing wasn't always in junior's face.
||Add some robotic arm to pick up toys and we have a deal. In my career as driver mothers with little kids in the car top the list of traffic hazards. When the sucker screams they can't resist turning around and groping on the floor. As risk they are way above cell phone users and drunk driving.
