I have decided that I would like to invent an umbrella that attaches to a pushchair/pram for us. We always get soaked pushing them when it's raining. The kids have their raincovers - why shouldn't we have something.
My friend suggested a doorbell with an answer machine on it. "Ding Dong! Sorry we aren't in at the moment but please leave your name, the time you called and a message and I'll contact you later!"
Sparkler you can actually get an umberalla that clips on to the buggy. Its designed for wheelchairs butnIm assuming it would work the same.
Personally IM very ambitious and would like a remote for men and kids. With buttons for volume, and behaviour. The one for men would have one to put the kids to bed. Go to sleep n leave me alone tonight, get the lawn cut etc.
