Seat Chiller: Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding?


Pools, flip-flops and sundresses are just a few reasons to adore warm weather. But along with those steamy days come hot seat belts and sweaty seats. Prevent burning baby with a blazing buckle by using a Baby Seat Chiller ($30).

Taken from the freezer, the one-size-fits-all gadget is made of vinyl, flannel, and flexible non-toxic ice packs that can cool a seat and its buckles in seconds. The downfall? Unless there's a cooler in the car, it seems like this trick may only work upon home departure. I doubt the ice packs could make it through a two-hour shopping excursion in the Texas heat. But maybe the shade it provides would be enough to keep the buckles from scorching a wee leg.
