Flort turned into Car Organizer for Kids

Car Organizer for Kids

Materials: Flort

Description: Not much of a hack but Elisabeth shares this great idea for the Flort Remote Control. It works just as well as a car organizer for kids. Stuff it with art supplies, tissues, toys, books, paper, etc. And the best part – it doubles as a seat protector for those messy little buggers.

    This may be a stupid question- but I am gonna ask it anyway- can the kids reach the stuff down there on their own?

    Yes – please put the screws in the arm rests. They don’t serve as artificial hips for your child when they go flying in a crash.

    Did you know that those Graco Turbobooster seats (both of them) need to have the screws in the arm rests? They came with the seats…in a little plastic bag with the instructions. The seat does not pass crash testing without those screws. If you can’t find yours, call Graco and order a new set.

    ha ha, I was sure someone will say something about the security. I checked the comments juste to have the confirmation on that. Each time there is something for kids, some folks should say their “science” about the security.
    Great idea, love it.

    That is an absolutely fantastic idea, it’s a shame my back car seats are one long seat, otherwise I would definitely do this! My friend has a mini-van with seats like this so I’ll let her know about it, I’m sure she’d love it.

    And even if these were infant car seats, it would still be fine since it wouldn’t cover the anchors as it lays across the seat. I see no issue. Awesome idea!

    The seats shown here are no more than boosters. Since there are no anchor points involved there should be no issues or dangers with the function of the seat. The boosters only purpose is to fit your child to your vehicles seat belts.

    This peaked my interest because I am looking for a soft (safe) organizer to sit between our kids’ car seats. Great idea if not used under the car seat. If you read your car seat manuals, you’ll find that this (and all after market products used with seats themselves) are forbidden.

      Seeing as often you are told to level a car seat using towel (some folks have used a pool noodle) I think that this is thin enough to not warrant any worry. That and there are seat protectors sold to specifically go under carseats. Pull your head out of your bum.

      Great point! Although this seems like a good idea it’s quite dangerous. Not worth risking my baby…
