We all know that sometimes the only way to get a fussy baby to sleep is to strap them into their car seat and take them for a spin around the block. Or blocks. The problem with that is that then you have to get them out of the car, without waking them back up!
But Fisher Price may have come up with a solution! The Fisher-Price Cruisin’ Motion Soother is a baby chair that mimics the a ride in the car. Not only does it have the vibrations of a humming engine, but it also includes bumps and bends!
Fisher-Price spokeswoman Sarah Allen describes the new seat: “Parents wanted something that could do the same job as a car seat but without the car.Â The chair itself is actually the deepest kind of seat we have ever done and we did that to give the same feel as aÂ car seat.Â It has a motor in the base and when you turn it on the chair moves everÂ so slightly.Â The movements vary throughout to match the same kind of sensation the baby gets from being in a car.Â Sometimes you go over bumps or go round a corner or turn left or right. Those are repeated in the chair, but ever so slightly, so that the baby feels like it is back in the car.Â The noise that accompanies the movements completes it. Some chairs swing the baby around but this isÂ more subtle.”
Are you kidding me? This sounds perfect! It’s not due out until July, but if I had a baby coming, I would pre-order one of these for sure! It’s going to cost right around $100.
Do you think the Cruisin’ Motion Soother would be worth paying $100 for?
