I guess babies that were unable to sit up were just screwed when it came to vehicle safety. I love the multipurpose car seat. Strap baby in and then put them in front of the TV. The scary thing is the travel playpen. This was designed to fit in the back seat of a car and the baby was free to move around and stretch out. There were no restraints.

The travel playpen came in two sizes: regular car and compact car. This did not come with a lid like the baby aquarium.

Except for the wallpaper and twin bed I actually like this room. The colors anyway. I want that Yertle the Turtle table. This is a color scheme worth looking into when I redecorate one of the rooms.
