Is it teething time for your little one?

We love them unconditionally but sometimes we just wish they would leave the car in the same state it was when they got in! Sadly, what was once your pride and joy now has to take a backseat until the kids are grown, or they learn to love it just as much as you do.


And considering it can often become a storage area for items that simply won’t fit in the house, and there is often very little time to clean it, you are guaranteed to find at least one or two of these items down the backseat.


1. An old soother

You thought you had seen the last of them at Christmas but one will always rear its head when you don’t want it to.



2. Some food

Move the car seat and you will no doubt find a few crumbs, raisins, or even a sandwich squished under the chair.



3. Socks

They have a knack of making their way from the washing machine to the car without you even doing anything.



4. A broken toy

You’re terrified to do anything with it in case your youngster realises it’s gone.



5. An empty coffee cup

Ok, not necessarily your toddler’s fault but you totally needed it the morning after they didn’t go to sleep until 4am...



6. The remote control

You have been looking for it for longer than you’d like and all the time it was hiding under the passenger seat.



7. Juice carton

You don’t even remember giving your little one this but there it is staring at you from the floor.



8. Stickers

On the back of the seat, all over the windows and on the floor, and they are extremely tricky to get off.



9. A shoe

How you never noticed it was missing you’ll never know!



10. Some unexplained sticky item...

We don’t even want to try to guess what it could possibly be...
