iStroll Kid

The World's First iPad Case for Baby Strollers.
*Patent pending.

Kids love the iPad! It's interactive, convenient, media-rich, easy to use (we can keep going, but you get the idea). The iStroll Kid allows parents to connect their iPad (or any tablet device) to a stroller or a wheelchair and go. While your child is busy watching a video or interacting with a educational app, parents are free to run errands, shop, go for a walk, whatever. Meanwhile, your little one stays entertained or educated or both, for up to 10 hours (but please, don't leave your child in the stroller for that long. That's just cruel.)

To see how the iStroll Kid works please watch our video above. It's pretty simple, though: the iStroll Kid connects to your stroller's legs. Once it's attached, you insert the iPad into the case and you're ready to go.

Being a father myself, I understand how difficult it is to manage your child when you're on the go. No more portable DVD players or expensive in-car entertainment systems.

How did we come up with this idea?

Idea

What was i thinking?

I'll spare you the marketing lingo and tell you what the impetus was for the creation of this little gizmo. When my wife and I went anywhere - to the grocery store, to the mall, to run a short 10-minute errand - if we had to take my son Alexander with us, that errand was guaranteed to become a nightmare. See, Alexander doesn't like drives and he doesn't like staying in his stroller. He's easily displeased in both places and when he is, the decibel level of his screaming is enough to drive dogs wild.

So we did what many parents in our technologically-dependent world do. We bought a DVD player for the car. Which totally worked - in the car. The stroller, however, was still a challenge.

Right around that time, the iPad was released. Movies! Games! Apps! Bright and Shiny Colors!

It was my dream come true. More importantly, my son took to it like a fish to water. I thought about duct-taping it to his hands, but my wife (and the Department of Children and Families) had a thing or two to say about that. So, I set about finding a way to mount the iPad in a key place that I needed it - Alexander's stroller.




Special Needs Child

"I have a daughter who is visually impaired and requires a wheelchair full time. As she is with me when we are a various conferences around the USA, this would be a wonderful way to promote and advertise your amazing product! Please let me know when this is available and the cost." --Mother of a special needs child.

When i started receiving emails such as these, we scrapped the original design and built something that would help improve a special needs child quality of life.

What we can do together

What really excites me most about this project is how much we can all help kids who rely on such tablets to improve their quality of life. The feeling that something like this will help a special needs child is truly the best feeling in the world. With your help, we will make this project a reality.

Inventor

Paul Graham from Y Combinator once said that the key to good products is to look for problems and then try to solve them. I had a problem. Being a first-time dad, my problem was my son would not relax in his stroller. That's the problem I solved, and I hope that if you have a similar problem, it will solve it for you too. Even if you don't have my specific issue, having the iStroll Kid is still a great way to expose your child to the wealth of educational opportunities that exist on the iPad when he might otherwise just be sitting there.

I give credit to my son for helping me come up with the iStroll Kid. In a sense he is the inventor. ;-)
