It’s time to hit the road, but you don’t have anything keep the kids entertained for the long drive. You don’t have to worry about buying a expensive DVD player – all you need is your iPhone or iTouch and the ingenious SeatBuddy.
The ideal travel companion (it works great on airplanes too), the SeatBuddy can hang from the glovebox or it hooks to your cars headrests with the Velcro. It doesn’t come with any fancy extras, like a built-in backup battery, or a solar charger, but it does give you everything you do need. Made from a safe rubber silicone that is manufactured in the USA, the SeatBuddy is thick enough to protect your phone from getting scratched and bumped, yet is flexible enough to be easily installed.
Invented by an airline pilot who could never find the perfect position for watching movies on his iPhone, SeatBuddy is durable, tough and can be used pretty much anywhere (when you’re not traveling, use it on the treadmill). It also comes with a set Velcro pieces so they can be attached to each other, which comes in handy when you have to use it in a place where the straps are clamped down. You can buy the SeatBuddy on their website, where they go for about $24 – money well spent when you think about the hours trapped in the car with occupied children.
