Weary mums and dads, ever wish you could do more parenting while lying down? Behold, this T-shirt designed by Japanese software engineer Ken Kawamoto.
From the front, it is a standard white T-shirt. Put on a hoodie, walk to your local cafe, and no one will have to know you are an evil genius. The back is where the brilliance lies. With an image of a railroad sprawled across it, you simply hand your amped-up kids some toy cars, lay your body face down on the floor, and let them roll the wheels back and forth on the tracks.
Kawamoto calls the invention “The T-shirt that gets you a massage from your kids just by plopping down on the floor”, a name that probably isn’t the best for branding, but gets the idea across.

The garment is available for purchase on this Japanese website, but of course, you can also DIY your own by getting a black marker and drawing some tracks on an old T-shirt. Then start “playing” with your kids, you sneaky parent, you.
