We're getting more Engadgety [Or is it Gizmodo-y?] every day. DT reader Don has had enough of lugging that Tripleplay Sit-n-Stroll around on plane trips. [You know the one. Looks like someone ripped it out of an RV and slapped some rollerskate wheels on the bottom? Big "As Seen In SkyMall!" sticker on the box?]
So when the FAA finally realized the cheapasses in the airline industry weren't exactly jumping to save dads' backs, and that maybe it's alright for consumers to buy their own approved CARES Kids Fly Safe Harness, Don jumped.
I just uploaded his gearsite-inspired Unboxing photoset to the flickr daddytypes pool, so check it out. Meanwhile, Don's so sure of car-seat-free flying bliss, he's having his wife test the rig out first while he stays home and works.
I'm definitely staying tuned for the post-game show on this one. We've got a trip to Japan and Hong Kong coming up that will involve three planes, countless trains, and exactly ZERO cars, so I'm looking for any reason to leave the car seat home.
