Jogger Parents: Meet The KidRunner

running-kid-stroller-1

You, dear active parent, want to go jogging. That cool! But the baby? Not so much. Jogging may be in his future, but for now he just wants to cry all day and suck on his thumb (do babies even suck on thumbs, or does that happen later? I have no idea). You could leave him at home with your significant other, but why not just pop him in the KidRunner? It’s a special stroller that, through “the composite frame and innovative, flexible “bow” that connects to the runner, decouples the up/down motion. It’s a smooth, safe, high performance ride for runner and kid.” This means you can run naturally, and your baby will simply feel as though he’s flying through the air, horizontally. It fits offspring aged 6 months to about 4.5 years, and from 10lbs to 45lbs. The KidRunner itself weighs 25lbs, so at most you’ll be trailing 70lbs. That’s quite a bit, sure, but think of it as an added workout challenge.

We don’t know how much it’ll cost nor exactly when it’ll hit the market (all we know is “in 2015″), but you can sign up on the company website to be notified of this.

Cradle ‘n Swing Lets Parents Take Care Of Their Baby From Afar

CBV76-4-in-1-smart-connect-cradle-n-swing-bru-d-2

Lazy parents everywhere, listen up: Fisher Price has released a baby cradle does all the rocking for you. That’s right, with the 4-in-1 Smart Connect™ Cradle ’n Swing, if you hear baby crying, instead of going over like a responsible adult, just whip out your smartphone and rock them from afar!

SmartSwing Technology offers 6 distinct swinging speeds from low to high so you can find the perfect rhythm to help soothe baby, whether swinging side-to-side (like a cradle) or head-to-toe. 16 songs, 3 nature sounds, and deluxe overhead mobile with light-up birdies (one with a mirrored belly) help keep baby entertained for hours!

Of course you can rationalize this $200 purchase by telling yourself you’re being “efficient” rather than lazy. And maybe you have a point. It’s not like bonding with your child is important or anything…

Batmobile Baby Stroller: For Your Little BatBaby

Batmobile baby stroller

He’s your little superhero, and nothing anyone says will change your mind. Of course we’re talking about none other than your offspring because yes, parents can be biased that way.

If you happen to be a creative dad who’s up for DIY projects that’ll make your kid grin from ear-to-ear, then you can take a page from Tim Baker’s book. Obviously being a pro prop designer for Hollywood means that he’s got skills most dads don’t, but that doesn’t mean you can’t build your own little Batmobile stroller (but you might need the help of your able-bodied friends and SO, too.)

Budsies Turns Kids’ Artwork Into Plushies

Budsies

Kids grow up way too fast, don’t they? If they’re still at the stage where they love to draw and doodle, then you can give them the perfect present this year by getting them Budsies. These aren’t your ordinary plush toys, and you can pretty much tell at first glance. The designs are unusual and look like they jumped out from the pages of your kid’s notebook…

That might very well be the case, because Budsies are actually custom made based on drawings and children’s artwork sent in by parents.

Step Up Kids’ Chair is a High Chair, Stool, and Slide In One

Step Up high chair

When you’ve got a kid, you’ll quickly realize that your once-spacious apartment is too small for comfort. A crib there, a playmat there, a high chair in the corner… If moving to a bigger place isn’t an option, then you might want to go for modular furniture like Step Up. It starts out as a high chair, but you can easily transform it into a step stool when you need one and a slide when it’s time for playtime.

Toymail Lets Parents Send Voicemail to Their Kids’ Toy

Toymail

Being a working parent is hard. Aside from missing out on some of your kid’s firsts, it sucks not being able to hang out and bond with your offspring as much as you want to. You can, however, harness the power of modern technology and make them feel your presence one way or another, like with Toymail.

It’s a small, mailbox-shaped toy that lets you send voicemail straight to your kids. The awesome part is that your child can send you messages, too, simply by hitting ‘reply.’

‘Ignore No More’ App Gives You the Power to Lock Phones Remotely

Ignore No More App1

 

Nobody likes being ignored, especially mothers. Unfortunately, kids (and even hubbies) these days ignore parents or their SOs for one reason or the other. Sometimes, it’s understandable. Other times, it causes undue panic because one party might assume that the other is in trouble. With this premise, Sharon Standifird created Ignore No More.

It’s an app that locks a paired device at the push of a button. The app has to be installed on both “parent” and “child” devices in order for it to work. (In some cases, that could be “wife” and “husband” or “girlfriend” and “boyfriend.)

SaddleBaby Frees Your Hands, Keeps Your Little One Safe

SaddleBaby

The reproductive act brings about the existence of miniature versions of your self. This much is clear. And it’s also a given that sooner of later, these mini-yous will want to sit on your shoulders and use you as a horsey. That too is clear, and it’s fine, except for the fact that safety dictates you hold their mini-feet so they don’t fall off your horse shoulders. How do you take a call? How do you do anything? That’s where the SaddleBaby comes in. It’s a harness that straps around your chest and gives your child a cushy seat atop your shoulders. More importantly, it binds their feet so they don’t fall while they’re getting their ride. So now you can walk around, post pictures to Facebook, Instagram your breakfast, take a call, or even flail your arms around for no reason, all the while being a not-completely-irresponsible parent. Any device that helps us be better parents with less effort is fine by us. It’s $90 and totally worth it, in our opinion.
