• 10 children's gadgets from the past
In the photo above - the typical design of the British capital early 30-ies of the last century. Cage vygulivaniya secured in the window opening, bringing a lot of thrills in the life of the baby. Developed strange device was in 1930, not without the help of the London City Council.
The cells were very common among the members of the club Chelsea Baby Club, who lived in high-rise buildings around which there was no garden or playground. The idea of walking the baby in the "window cage" was patented by Emma Reed of Washington in 1922 as a means to help parents who live in crowded urban environments. Thus was solved the problem of small apartments! "Room to sleep in the open air"
A lot of children born before the mid-1960s have come home from the hospital in the cradle and have seen nothing safer than hand mother. Today in the US, and in many countries there is a law on child safety seats in cars. The very first special seats for children in cars appeared on the market in 1898, but at that time, security has been more directed to the protection of the driver, not the kids. Those seats for children restrict movement of the kid and the driver can easily operate the machine. In 1933, the company "Bunny Bear" for the first time showed a chair for children, which is attached to the back seat so that the driver can watch the baby through the rearview mirror.
This car seat is more like a pot than a security gadget.
It is obvious inventor Emil Eberle from Geneva, Switzerland, is considered sufficiently safe for children, this invention. The seat was attached directly to the steering wheel.
Now I know where Spielberg got his inspiration for the bike chase in the movie "ET"
In 1973, the manufacturers finally start to worry about the small passenger seat. This model was the 1965 winner of the criteria of safety, including on the crash tests for frontal impact at 90 km / h. This model has produced the company Ford. As you can see on top of the seat belt goes easy chair, in order to calm the baby move.
In the photo: a child drinks from a banjo-bottle end of the 1800s (a round flat shape). Bottle made of glass with a rubber tube and a pacifier. Later, this bottle was condemned by doctors as unhygienic - a rubber tube it was impossible to wash. These bottles enjoyed enormous popularity as each had the name of "My small animal" or "Mom's happiness." Against the background of the standard at that time, names like "Empire", "National" and "Victorian", the name sounded very nice.
Then came a wicker basket attached to the scooter.
And here's another karset for kids.
And of course ... Arriving at the destination point of the younger son can be hung on the door of the car. Parents and older children seem happy this decision. The kid was not happy, but, you know, all at once is impossible to please.
