Joan Lunden is often considered a role model as she holds the title for hosting a morning television show longer than any other person, had her second set of twins at age 54 and is a best selling author of several parenting books. Her latest title is inventor, having unveiled her new creation at a child product convention last week.

The KinderKord is an updated take on the kiddie harness, with wrist cords for both parent and child that connect in the middle. With three feet of cording and the ability to connect two children to one adult, Lunden claims that her product allows a child to roam more freely than traditional leashes and it has a "hip and cool unisex band that can be worn by a man or a woman." The KinderKord is not yet available to consumers, but we are curious if it is something you would consider.
