Sometimes the only way to get a crying baby to sleep is to strap them into a car seat and take them for a spin.
But those midnight excursions could be a thing of the past, thanks to a new gadget that mimics the sleep-inducing effect of a car ride.
The Fisher-Price Cruisin’ Motion Soother takes your tot on a virtual reality car journey – it even includes bumps and bends and the gentle hum of an engine.
“Parents wanted something that could do the same job as a car seat but without the car,” Fisher-Price spokeswoman Sarah Allen explains.
“The chair itself is actually the deepest kind of seat we have ever done and we did that to give the same feel as a car seat.
“It has a motor in the base and when you turn it on the chair moves ever so slightly.
“The movements vary throughout to match the same kind of sensation the baby gets from being in a car.”
The seat is expected to hit stores in July, and will cost around $100.
