Kids are back in school, which means your commute may be filled with siblings squabbling in the backseat. The sounds of kids fighting over the iPad might increase your daily stress, and that’s never a good thing.
Thankfully, our new Backseat Car Organizer with Tablet Holder is here with plenty of space to store everything your kids need on the road from snacks to toys and tissues. Product Manager Christopher designed this product for your family and he’s excited to share his thought process in the interview below. Read on to find out what inspired Chris to build this product and help you maintain your sanity!
#1) What inspired you to create this must-have car accessory?
Chris: I have seen many different types of car seat organizers that serve lots of purposes, such as with food tray, with tablet holder, with cooler, napkin holder, etc.; however, since there’s no car seat organizer that combines all major features and provides a complete solution to customers, I wanted to fulfill that need.
Due to this lack of all-in-one organizer, customers often have to carry many different items while travelling. I noticed this by observing my own friends and family members. For an example, my sister would carry a cooler, napkin case, and other small pouches to hold misc. items such as Smartphone cables, makeup kits, etc. Also, my mother often carries a small portable cooler bag to keep her medications handy on the road. Since she takes medications two or three times a day, being able to bring them with her when she travels helps her stay on schedule. I wanted to make travel easier for my family and yours, so I created the Prosumer’s Choice back seat organizer as an all-in-one solution to assist customers with their fast-paced daily lives.
#2) How did you design this product with safety in mind?
Chris: I always think safety first is a good rule of thumb. The organizer is made of high quality durable material, such as quality snap closure clips and double straps (top/bottom) to lock & hold the organizer in place when properly installed. Additionally, the organizer has features that hold your items safely while in transit, such as zipper locks for the transparent tablet holder & cooler bag so items won’t fall off during a sudden movement of the vehicle. I designed the beverage cup holders to keep soda cans/bottles/cups in place to avoid spills. Since I know spills happen anyway, especially with children, I chose to make the organizer with water resistant spill-proof material to avoid liquids leaking on to the car seat. The organizer can be easily cleaned by wiping off and drying, which I think is a big bonus for parents.
The napkin holder enables you to store and carry your napkins or tissues while on the road to keep yourself or family members clean & healthy. Most importantly, having a feature-filled organizer like this that keeps all backseat passengers occupied, allows the driver to keep his/her eyes on the road with less distractions and stress. I’d like to add that for customer’s safety and knowledge, we have provided helpful safety information in the user manual to follow before/while using the product.
#3) What’s your favorite feature about this Car Backseat Organizer?
Chris: The ability to hang the organizer in-between the two front seats is my favorite feature. This is a very unique feature like no other backseat organizer on the market. The average family has two kids, which means parents must buy two of everything, one per child i.e. two car seats, two tablets, etc. for traveling. Our solution allows parents to save money by only buying one organizer that both kids will be able to enjoy at the same time!
When the organizer is strapped in the middle, kids can enjoy an educational movie or a cartoon together. In return you get to keep both of your kids occupied while you concentrate on driving. Plus, sharing the tablet, toys, and other items stored in your organizer helps to build a relationship between siblings as they engage in enjoyable activities and learn together.
We are talking a lot about the benefits for kids, yet another of my favorite features about the organizer is that it’s also practical backseat entertainment for adults. If you think about it, this organizer can help you get a lot of work done as a passenger. You’ll be able to participate in an important webinar or video conference with your business partners while you’re travelling to a tradeshow or a professional meeting with your team using the tablet sleeve. The hands-free tablet holder allows you to take notes and be productive instead of trying to hold your tablet steady in the car.
There’s more than just work applications of this product for adults. How about watching replays from a concert or your favorite music video and having a great laugh with your friends on your road trip? Everyone in the backseat gets a good view with the tablet holder, so you’ll all be able to share more moments together. These are a few other fun ways adults can use this organizer interactively as well.
#4) Should parents or other shoppers purchase more than one of these kids’ car organizers?
Chris: They should buy one for each of their family (relatives) & friends as gifts 😊
All kidding aside, I designed this product in part to help parents who felt like they needed to buy more than one car organizer to travel with their kids. I noticed many parents were buying multiple organizers so their kids would be able to see the tablet screen at the same time. I think that’s kind of forcing parents to buy multiple organizers instead of solving the problem creatively as we did. Our solution means most families will only need to buy one organizer to keep everyone happy.
#5) Does this organizer also serve as a kick matt to protect car seats?
Chris: Indeed, it does. I know kick mats are popular for parents with young children as they keep the back of your front seat upholstery clean from dirty shoes. Still, if you’re going to buy a kick mat, why not get one that will entertain your little ones for the ride? That way your front car seat stays protected and your kids are busy being entertained.
