It doesn’t take a professor to figure out that busy families can always use an extra hand. But it wouldn’t hurt to have a former professor with kids figure out a way to help out. “The first time I took my new baby into a public restroom and couldn’t find a convenient way to hang my diaper bag near the changing table, I knew I had to develop a hook that could help every parent and caregiver…” explained Lulabop founder, Mina Yoo. Yoo’s gift to families is the LulaBiner: a two-ended carabiner. It sports two functional hooks to allow for hands-off peace of mind.

Many parents have at least one memory of their child having a close call or injury. These moments stick with a parent and can make them cringe even decades after it happens. For inventor Jay Conohan, the experience of his son’s fall in the bath tub led to a spark of genius and eventually the creation of his product. Bath and Play is a playard specially designed for the tub. The structure fits directly in the tub itself, transforming it into a little stall where a kid can safely enjoy the bath. It features foam sides and a textured floor that allows children to stand, hold on and move around while in the bath.
Bike riding forms a cornerstone in the memory, not only as a fun way to break free, but also as a rite of passage. Companies that capitalize on that desire understand that they are delivering more than just a bike or accessory; they are fulfilling part of a customer’s dream. KaZAM brings extra sturdy bikes to kids, while Yedoo keeps everyone in the family on wheels with their bikes and scooters. Nite Ize and Bike Brightz help kids kick it up a notch with decorative lights that illuminate the path to warm memories.
For some families, bathing a baby can be a calm, relaxing, bonding experience; for others it can be a little less pleasant. The fact is that not all babies enjoy being bathed. While most babies and parents eventually adapt to bathing routines just fine, it’s always nice to have products that can make the whole experience easier, safer and more fun for everyone involved. Blooming Bath is an invention that combines attractiveness and function in a way that may very well transform bath time for babies and caregivers.

If you haven’t been there, you certainly know someone who has: you leapt from a taxi with kids and luggage in tow only to be searched by strangers at security checkpoints. You then spent several aggravating hours on the plane trying to keep the kids happy and when you touched down, you made a beeline for the rental desk. Of course, you made arrangements with the rental agency for the kids’ car seats — but when the rental agent informed you that the seats weren’t there, you had only a few options: rush around like crazy trying to find an alternative… or start walking. Or, if you are like Grainne Kelly, inventor of the BubbleBum inflatable safety seat, you could just whip out your car seats and be on your way.

Any place there are a lot of kids, there’s usually a ton of fun. There’s also a lot of chaos. Think of the last kids’ party you were at: The hostess hands out bottles of water. Kids drink deeply, toss the container on the table, and run off to play. They come back throughout playtime to grab a drink, but it doesn’t always end up in the same place on the table. Some kids solve this by just drinking whatever is nearest, creating a hazmat situation right in some unsuspecting parent’s backyard. Of course, one way to solve this kind of problem is by having the labeling products from Kidaroo Crew on hand to help each child identify his or her own beverage.
