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.

See the shirt in action here:

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.
