Video - Ride on Carry On Featured on ABC News
Excerpt from "Time" Magazine...
Flight Attendant Darryl Lenz and her husband Randy were dashing through the Atlanta airport with their 2 year old son, Dawson perched precariously on top of their luggage when Darryl wondered, Why hasn't anyone invented a baby seat that you can attach to a rolling suitcase? A few chopped-up beach chairs later the Lenzes had a prototype. They sat on it for a couple years, nervous about spending the $5000.00 on a patent, but when Randy saw other parent's reactions to the Ride On Carry On - which attaches to roll-on luggage and then folds flat for storage in an overhead bin - he agreed to mortgage their Deerfield Beach, FL house. The chair was sold via the internet in 2002, started winning awards, and this month will debut in the One Step Ahead catalog - considered by many inventors a sure sign of success.
