The new year is full of promise … and we wouldn’t mind if brought us inventions that made parenting a little easier! Flip through our photo album to read about baby products that we dreamed up. Yes, they’re fake but we think they have a shot at hitting the market in 2014 — even as practical jokes. Hey, if there is an over-the-door baby holder made for stashing your kid while you wash your hands (yes, there really is!), you just never know.

“The Ride-Around” – A Motorized Crib

What it does: It’s a motorized crib that moves on an indoor track, putting baby to sleep without ever having to step foot outside the house. Just think of all of the sleep you’ll get and the money you’ll save on gas!
Why we can’t wait: We’re exhausted logging so much time in the car trying to get our little ones to sleep. It would be great to finally take our foot off the gas pedal and rest it in bed.
