Mommy, I’m Here Child Locator System

Most any parent with a child who has reached the age where she’s too big for a stroller and too young to understand the dangers of suddenly darting away has experienced the fright of realizing your child isn’t beside you anymore.  My sister even tried using one of those little harnesses with my nephew – he was a runner – but those are no fun for anyone.  (Except passers-by who feel they have the right to tell you how horrible they think the harness is.)  Amazon is selling the Mommy I’m Here child locator system that will give your child some freedom but help you find them if they walk out of sight.  You attach the little bear to the child’s belt or shoe laces and keep the keyring fob with you.  If your child wanders out of sight, press the button on the keyring fob to activate the 86 dB alarm in the bear so you’ll know exactly where your kid is.  The alarm works within 150 feet.  The Mommy I’m Here Child Locator is about $25 at Amazon, and it’s available in pink and brown.

    … and what does the poor kid do when their shoe or belt all of a sudden sounds an 86db alarm?

    Hopefully the kid will freeze long enough for you to find it. What i wonder is how long does it take for a kid to run out of the 150 ft range, specially in a mall with stuff in the way to shorten that range.

    Agree with Chris. Sounds wonderfully traumatic for the kid. Talk about aversion therapy.

    What they need is electro-magnets in the shoes that automatically activate when the child gets to the range set by the parents. Electro-magnets activate and lock together…child moves no further. :-D
