iLatch

Hi all :)

How about a an awesome mommy invention today? Okay, good.

So, my blogging buddy, Laura from iGriza, has created something that is essential if you own an iPad! For as long as I have read her blog, she has been a Mac products fanatic. She is so knowledgeable when it comes to iPhones, iPads, Apps, etc. I've learned so much from the reviews she has done and questions she has answered for me. Brent and I have been with Mac...and not looked back..for quite some time :)

For the iPad 1 & iPad 2, Laura has created the iLatch. It allows you to hang your iPad from pretty much any place! If you are a mom, and your hands are occasionally tied up (because you obviously can't play with baby while you drive or grocery shop), it comes in very handy for strollers, pack n' plays, cars and the list goes on.  If you are out and about, and need to entertain your nugget at a restaurant, grocery store, or anywhere really, the iLatch will come in EXTREMELY handy! You really can hang it anywhere!

So, do you agree this is an awesome product? Would you like one for yourself or your family? Here are some ways to help!

Laura needs our help! She has to reach $7,000 in donations before September 26 to make this happen.  She isn't far from her goal and if the iLatch is a product that you can see yourself using now or in the future, why not help a mommy inventor out? ;) Go HERE to donate.

You can donate as little as $1.00!

Want the iLatch for HALF OFF?!?
The iLatch will be available this fall and right now they are accepting pre-orders if you go here and pledge $25, you will get the iLatch in the mail. The regular-priced iLatch will be $50, so you’d be getting a great discount!

Check out Laura's demonstration video! You can see the iLatch in action :)

In Laura's words..

Parents can attach iLatch with its unique set of clips to a stroller, car headrest, pack n’ play, shopping cart, restaurant chair and many more places for kiddie entertainment on the go. One of iLatch’s greatest features allows it to be moved from place to place with one hand. This case is a perfect travel accessory for iPad. No need to leave Elmo behind at home when you can bring his learning lessons on the road. 
 
The iLatch is a case I created out of desperation when traveling and never having a case that suited all of my needs. My son loves to watch his baby shows on the iPad when we travel. 
This case is not just for children, but for anyone who watches video on their ipad! No more propping up your ipad case!

  5. I know that you are supporting causes, fellow moms, and organizations and I know that this isn't a sponsorship post. Still, I feel like all you do lately is endorse one thing or another! I began reading you to hear your story, not an advertisement. Just a thought, remember why you blog.

  6. I worry why parents feel the need that young babies should to be entertained by ipads constantly (Like riding in the car, strollers, restaurants,etc) like this product is promoting?? Sure, most will say that they are watching educational shows or games, but what about talking and interacting with your child while you are at a restaurant or grocery store and explain the world around them instead of some annoying cartoon character? Just a thought....

    We have the griffin cinema seat for iPad and love it. You can pick it up for $15 on amazon.

    Pretty lame...

  11. ugh! babies that young shouldn't be watching any TV/video. None! No TV is better than "good" TV. C'mon guys!
    I worry that this product encourages poor parenting.

  12. Props to Laura on the invention. There is no denying that this is very clever and useful. I do wonder why anyone would be taking their iPad all over the place to entertain their babies though. As a mom of a 3 year old, 20 month old and another due to arrive any day now, I can say that one of the greatest gifts you can give a child is the ability to entertain themselves. We do occasionally have a movie night with the kids, but other than that, our entertainment is outdoors or if we are in the road, colors and a piece of paper is great!

  13. Yeah, maybe babies don't need to be watching TV 24/7, but I would much rather see a kid watching an iPad in a restaurant or something than screaming and annoying everyone else there (can you tell I don't have kids haha).

  14. Everything in moderation...I don't see a problem with a little "iPad watching" while doing errands - not all the time but in a pinch. You will get them done faster and then can spend more quality time with your kids! i think it is a great idea and preordered one!

  15. I pledged, I think it's a clever idea. Thank you so much for sharing.
    And yes, it's poor parenting at it's finest, thank you very much. I'm glad you're perfect and feel it's in your place to judge families that you have no clu about.
    Rock on with my iPad and cheers to poor parenting.
    Lmao!!

  16. I think this product is a good idea. I do not own an iPad but my husband and I have iPhones and they are great for entertaining our children when we need to get things done. Iam with Megan..lets support eachother.

  17. I guess in a very rare pinch this product could come in handy. I like to encourage my children to be happy in the natural world, and I also have expectations of them to behave appropriately in certain situations. :)Interesting product though.
