My son is about 2 years old. Often, we take him for a walk in his stroller. We have to cross the road on our way. It is not a major highway, but it still has pretty intense traffic at times. Normally, I have to wait some time before Iím able to merge into the traffic, when I drive somewhere.
However, when we approach the road with my son, it is usually empty. Yes, it really looks like he is able to control the traffic, so we can pass without interference, or rather, to control our movement, so we get in sync with traffic to come to the road during silent moment.

does it work when your son is in a car seat or just when he's in a stroller?

If it works while he's in a car, can I borrow him? he'd shave 20 minutes off my commute!

Very Happy

it works even if he is in the car seat, but are you sure that you want to borrow him, he comes with the full package, will you be able to handle it Smile

My house isn't even safe for adults yet! A toddler wouldn't stand a chance around here unfortunately.

I'd turn him into a little contractor by age six though Cool

lol..I don't know if it's just driving, but my two toddlers have the exact same effect WHEREVER we go: everyone wants to have us move out of the way ASAP! Such joy...... Rolling Eyes

I wish that worked with my kids. I have three of them and they can't seem to control traffic at all. More or less they seem to attract it because its always busy when I go out and have them with me.

I am very familiar with what the package is full of. Is the force still with him 4 years later. If so it would be interesting to have him visit the Red Sea.
