THE SITUATION: Camping with little ones definitely presents its own set of challenges. For babies, finding stable seating is one of the biggest, yet so many outdoor chairs aren’t designed with them in mind.

A SOLUTION: Kidco’s Go-Pod is a good option to help ensure an infant’s safety, serving as a portable activity center that can keep the child upright and entertained. Its surface provides enough room for toys (with five nylon loops to keep them secured) and includes built-in holders for drinks and snacks.

THE DETAILS: The Go-Pod is lightweight at 7 pounds and includes a bag with handle for easy carry. It includes a locking button to keep the unit secured and a floor pad for baby’s feet. The height is adjustable to grow with your child.

The fabric is made from 100 percent polyester that’s UV protected and fire retardant (also free of lead and phthalates). Drink and snack holders are made from PVC (material passes ASTM test for safe levels). The product can be used for ages ranging from approximately 4 months to walking. Open dimensions are 24 inches long by 24 inches wide by 19.5 inches high.

The Go-Pod is available in a range of color combinations.

PRICE: $59.99.
