Wireless Child Locators

Wireless Child Locator: Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding?

How far would you go to track your toddler? Some lil ones have a tendency to dart off in crowded places leaving their parents in a panic. More than 60 percent of lilsugar readers have no problem with a backpack-style harness or a wrist leash, but what about a wireless device? The Mommy I'm Here Child Locator ($30) uses either a brown or pink plastic teddy bear to hide a receiver on lil one's shoelaces while mama holds onto the small key chain transmitter. After losing sight of her lil one, mom just has to press a button and a chirping sound is emitted from the receiver. Good for up to 150 feet, the locator alerts youngsters of their parent's search. Would you invest in one?

i like the idea because i'm a mom with a sweet son with some special needs. he's not really a wanderer, but my almost 2-year-old is a wild child who sometimes forces my attention away from my older one. if my older son were to wander off while my attention was directed to my younger son, it would be awful. he's on the autism spectrum and while he is verbal, he is hard to understand. so if he was asked, "what is your name?" he may answer but you couldn't understand him. while i wouldn't trust this entirely, it may be a nice, added level of assurance in case i couldn't spot him immediately.

I like the idea actually. Yes, I agree that a parent needs to watch their child, but sometimes things happen and children get lost. I think this would be good for going to a large zoo, park, etc. 150 is not really enough, but I understand what they are trying to do with this. It is pretty big though, which could be a problem. What if someone takes it off, including the child?!?

Here is a wacky idea....how about you just watch your child. It is easy to do. I have one son that I never lost and I was a nanny for 6 kids and never lost any of them. I even brought all of the to the State Fair and still never lost a one of them or even misplaced one for a little bit. Watch your kids people.
