Clip-on keeps kid close

How can you make sure you don’t forgetfully walk away from your baby – or that the baby isn’t wheeled away from you? …With the ChildMinder SoftClip.
The tiny clip-on device beeps for eight seconds when you move more than fifteen feet away from a child. It’s especially intended for use in the car, to ensure parents don’t forget the baby is in the backseat! “It’s easy to install, and is spill proof,” BabyAlertUSA says. Seems like it should also work on a stroller or carriage.
It’s $82 here.
No parent wants to worry their toddler has toddled away out of sight… Now the Filip, a wearable locator/watch/phone, will “keep parents and kids in touch at the push of a button.”
Filip provides you with location, voice calling, and direct messaging to your child. “The parent remains in control at all times through an app on their smartphone,” the company says, “including the designation of five trusted contacts with whom the child can communicate.”
You can also set “Safe Zones,” so if your child enters or leaves a designated area, you get an immediate notification. An intelligent emergency procedure locates the child and puts them in touch with family if needed.
AT&T is the exclusive network provider in the US, and says additional details on pricing and service plans will be available in the coming months.
Find your toddler fast

Kids can wander off — and while they might just be having some fun, new parents can quickly panic.
Now BeLuvv is developing the $25 Guardian accessory to ensure no panic is necessary: the wearable waterproof device sends parents a notification the instant a child goes beyond a custom-set distance.
The Guardian can also tie into what BeLuvv calls its “crowd-guarding network” that it says will “turn every place into a safe playground for children.” Anyone who installs the app on their mobile device becomes part of the “expansive and secure crowd-sourced platform to search for and pinpoint lost children.”
