Lo'jack for Lil' Tykes
Robert White knows the panic that strikes when you lose track of your child.
"A couple of years ago, we were in a department store, and my daughter decided to play hide-and-seek between some clothes racks," says the 34-year-old Danville resident. "One second she was there, and the next she was gone. Needless to say, it was terrifying."
Fortunately, White located his daughter quickly. But he decided he never wanted to feel that fear again. So he created Mommy I’m Here, a teddy-bear shaped tracking device that attaches to a child’s shoestrings or belt loop. Now, when junior wanders off to the frozen food aisle while Mom or Dad is still picking out peaches in the produce section, the worried parent simply hits a button on a key-chain transmitter and the teddy bear emits a chirp that can be heard from 150 feet away. "It’s incredibly simple," says White. "I’m surprised no one has thought of it before me."
