A Sydney-based father-of-two has invented a genius device to stop children fighting in the back seat of the car.
In September we shared the story of how dad of two, Mark Abay, 42, was inspired to create the ‘Backseat Carma’ after his kids fighting almost caused him to crash into the car in front.
The clever tool retails from $139 and acts as a ‘backseat divider’ to ensure no scratching, biting or kicking occurs while in transit.
Speaking to FEMAIL, Mr Abay shared the motivation behind his burgeoning business and explained why parents everywhere could use a Backseat Carma in their lives.
‘Every time we got in the car with our kids, they’d fight – it happened time and again which was leading to high stress levels and distracted driving,’ he said.
‘Nothing was available on the market, so out of sheer necessity I invented a solution for parents who know the pain and dangers of kids fighting during car journeys.’
The Backseat Carma is a safe and secure backseat divider that blocks kids’ reach and view of one another, eliminating the ability to fight in the car.
The product is made from PU Foam, similar to the fabric of a mattress, and eco-friendly PU leather.
Parents can secure the device with the middle seat belt without obscuring the drivers rear vision.
It is finally here!
We can now share with you the exciting news that the Backseat Carma is available to purchase NOW in Australia via the website – international shipping is also available.
“With the Australian Summer school holidays fast approaching, this is the answer to stressful car journeys,” Mr Abay said.
“We’ve also received a number of pre-orders from parents of children with special needs because it really does create safe, personal space for children in the car. It’s a fantastic feeling to know that we’re making car journeys safer and more enjoyable for families,” said Abay.
