An Answer To All Your Prayers? Hertz Introduces The Colour-In Car

Hertz Introduces The Colour-In Car

Do you constantly tear your hair out at the mess the kids leave the car in? We have something to show you that might just remedy that. Car Rental Specialists, Hertz bring you the world’s first colouring-in car. No, I am being serious here - it's a car that you can let the kids loose in, with a felt tips!

Basically, the car is upholstered with the designs of a Colouring Book and it can be 'coloured in' as you travel to your destination.

It's a great idea when you think of how 'bored' the kids are as soon as you start a journey anywhere. Mine even do it on a two minute drive to the supermarket. So, it entertains them, but 'colouring in' is also thought to be rather relaxing too - does that mean no more fighting?

I get the thinking behind this but it does leave me feeling a bit uneasy - will the kids now expect this in our own car at home? Will they annoy me even more because the green pen has rolled under the passenger seat?

These special, child-friendly cars are literally like a Colouring In Book from seats to ceiling.

How to get your hands on one? A trial run starts in August from the Hertz London Heathrow branch and if it's a success then it'll be rolled out to others.

  • Shannon T.

    I woukdbt be happy :joy::joy:

  • Aiden D.

    Imagine our lot less loose :see_no_evil::joy:

  • Kate P.

    What a stupid idea! They're not going to be able to reach to colour, while they're strapped into their car seats, and why would they need to be entertained in a parked car? Surely, everyone would get out of the car when it reached its destination and do something more interesting!

  • Amy J.

    This is a shit idea kids make enough mess already in my car!

  • Rebekah W.

    And when they colour out the lines the car will have to be crushed :joy:Because people with OCD could not handle this!

  • Tancie K.

    Our kids would draw on themselves :joy::joy::joy:

  • Blair C.

    Never mind the kids will keep me entertained

  • Ej T.

    whoever came up with this is an idiot!

  • Jamie J.

    Ours is pretty much like that anyway :punch_tone1:

  • Claire D.

    This teaches them nothing

  • Dee S.

    :see_no_evil: I don't think I could cope x

  • Carly D.

    I may crash helping them :joy: xx

  • Claire R.

    I know a grown up who would love this too Tamm. X

  • Charlotte B.

    That would keep me entertained forget the kids :joy::joy:

  • Anne M.

    Ridiculous...why encourage graffiti. Entertain your children yourself on the journey.

  • Mandi C.

    So what happens when u hand the car back if it's been fully coloured in? Does it get ditched? Re-Upholstered? That's not going to be cheap. Besides the obvious 'how are they going to reach the rest of the car while strapped into car seats' and 'then they will think it's ok to colour in mums creme leather interior on the family car' How much is this actually going to keep them amused. If other kids are anything like my kids they get bored within 5 seconds and are asking me to colour in the rest of the picture for them...

  • Ben B.

    Wtf my worst nightmare lol

  • Kate S.

    I don't like that idea encourages them to draw on everything lol xxx

  • Carly D.

    Then I'll be colouring it all myself so it looks nice :blush: xx

  • Laura E.

    Seriously.... Such a bad idea. This is really sending mixed messages to the children.... You can draw on these seats but not the sofa, car seats, beds, clothes etc.. .

  • Helen K.

    So then the kids think this is ok in any car ?!?!?! :see_no_evil:

  • Julia P.

    Would be good for the teenagers just passed their tests, they always go hang out in their cars with their mates. Now they can go hang out and do colouring in instead of racing down streets :joy::joy::joy:

  • Laura B.

    They would be bored lol x

  • Victoria W.

    :grinning::grinning::grinning: I love this idea lol x

  • Rebecca M.

    Bad idea let's them think they can draw on anything :see_no_evil::joy: x

  • Rachel L.

    For us.....not the kids :joy::heart_eyes:

  • Dani S.

    how long before they draw on each other?

  • Amy E.

    Amazing! They'd all love that!!

  • Lauren R.

    My kids do this anyway :weary:

  • Jemima M.

    He would actually have a melt dowm

  • Amanda D.

    Bloody stupid idea...not only are the kids gonna argue more as the other sibling has the pen they want it will cause issues when home as they will think they can do it to other cars...twat who thoight of this one obviously has NO KIDS

  • Lynda S.

    ye lets all encourage the kids to not wear seatbelts and draw all over furniture!!!

  • Pamela G.

    I'll be out there drawing to entertain myself

    Oh wow!! This would never happen lol

  • Julia P.

    Just seen this lol can u imagine mess they'd make haha an how they gonna colour it in while in a car seat....itd either be leave them in parked car all day an get done for neglect....or just put up with scribbles with a bum shape in middle, either way it wouldn't be in lines :joy::joy::joy:

  • Belle W.

    The little f*****s can't colour between the lines at the dining table so it's gonna be a mess when I'm driving and who wants to drive a car with random scribbles everywhere

  • Natalie P.

    Nooooo be reet let them just do the doors ga ga xxx

  • Klare H.

    What a stupid idea, saying to kids it ok to trash and graffiti the inside of a car. I hope this is a joke or the marketing genius who thought of a ridiculous idea is a complete muppet!

  • Kathryn R.

    Kid indulgent. They can learn to sit in a car.

  • Leanne T.

    Omg no! Lol it wud jus b black scribble if james did it

  • Vicki A.

    What happens when it's all coloured is it washable or is buy a new car time. Don't think I could cope with that all over my car..

  • Gillian J.

    What about kids climbing out their seats to finish colouring in the ceiling?

  • Tanya M.

    If you loved them you would :relaxed:

  • Ian M.

    No point. Pens are higher up the banned list than shoes in my Landy :thinking:

  • Floribeth A.
