Tribal Green Tot Tye

Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding: Tot-Tye

Can't keep your kid seated at the dinner table? Maybe you should give Tribal Green's Tot-Tye a tug. The organic cotton device ($28) ties children to their seats with two straps.

For parents in a bind, the Tot-Tye may provide temporary relief, but some wee ones would probably still manage to wiggle their way out of the restraint.

What do you think of the Tot-Tye?

Just a thought but most children wiggle and squirm when the want out of a seat, all I can think is if they somehow got their arms though the ties and could possibly choke? It seems unlikely however I have seen children do things that I didn't thing humanly possible. A booster seat or high chair seems more safe to me...

I could see using this if my child was a DOG, this is just as crazy as those leashes you see people having their children attached to. Maybe if parents could spend a little time forming their children into respectful listeners who do what they ask they wouldn't need to be tying their children up like animals!

I saw some guy tie his grandson to a chair with his belt at a restaurant. This TotTye makes that a little more glamorous, but I don't know if it's a great idea anyway.

wonderwoman... HAH... duct tape aint just for home fixer uppers anymore!!! when we swaddled our lil one, i always said... he's like houdini we need duct tape (again sarcasm inserted)... i purchased something similar (and cheaper) from onestepahead and found that our lil guy was FASCINATED w/the fasteners and kept trying to turn around & check them out.... i felt he'd fall or topple over. we bought a portable booster instead (felt safer)

I have 2.5 yr old twins and mealtime is still a challenge. This would be a great alternative for restaurants and traveling. It packs much smaller than a portable booster.

My daughter used to always slide out of chairs, not on purpose, and I think this would be great for that. But as a tool to "teach" them to stay in their seat at meal time? Nope.

Seems much more socially acceptable than the constant urge I have to duct tape my son to his chair.

We have a portable high chair/ booster that we keep in the car for visits to grandma's house. But by now, my girl is old enough to sit in a big chair, and if she gets down it means she's done. If you child isn't big enough to sit in a chair without falling, get a better chair. If it's not falling you're worried about but misbehavior, this won't help you fix the problem, it's just a "band-aid" solution.

While there is something adorable about this picture, I can't imagine doing this with my child. I agree with Dana18 - it's such a forced way to teach discipline.

You will never teach your child discipline by tying them to a chair. They must learn at dinner time you stay on your set until your meal is finish or you are full.

I wouldn't use it. Get a booster seat not some string.

Aren't you tying your kid down when you use a high chair anyway? My mother in law used dish towels to keep my daughter on the chair when we went to her house because she didn't have any kind of high chair. I think this would be good at restaurants. The highchairs there are always so gross and hard to fit close to the table.

While I'd love it if this work on my son, it seems a little barbaric, like why not just throw a little duct tape around the chair instead (please catch the sarcasm in that statement).

When my nephew would come over to my house when he was little I would use a dish towel to tie him to the chair (I know that sounds bad but it is not) when we would eat because he wanted his own chair and I did not want him falling off. My sister already brought everything under the sun over. I did not feel she needed to bring a high chair also.

its pretty much the same idea as a high chair but for a bigger kid. I don't see a problem. Dinner time shouldn't be run around the table time.
