Creative Dad Designs T-shirt To Trick His Son Into Giving Him A Back Massage





Although being a parent is already a tough job, most moms and dads have work to deal with as well. So parents are coming up with creative ways to cope with the demands of everyday life.

One of these tired parents is Ken Kawamoto, who has a Twitter handle @kenkawakenkenkem. The Japanese dad has a son who likes trains a lot. Kawamoto decided to make his son happy and for him to relax at the same time. As a Google software engineer, Kawamoto easily finds the perfect way to do it.

Kawamoto recently tweeted a video of his son running a toy train along his back. While it looked like a new kind of game at first, it’s actually a genius idea to trick the young boy into effectively giving his dad a massage without even knowing it.

Kawamoto calls the shirt,  “The T-shirt that gets you a massage from your kids just by plopping down on the floor.”

Each track has stations marked as “right shoulder,” “left shoulder,” “spine,” and “lower back,” this way, the cheeky father can direct his son to drag the train on the spot he wanted.

Netizens were amazed by Kawamoto’s creativity and left positive comments on the post.

Some of them read:

“This is the greatest idea I’ve seen in years.”
“You can play with your kid and get a massage at the same time? Awesome!”
“You’re a genius.”

Kawamoto is ready to offer his train/massage shirt to other parents, as it’s available online for 2,400 yen (US$22). It also comes in a wide range of sizes, from S to triple XL.

This isn’t the first time Kawamoto has designed a special shirt for his son. He previously created a T-shirt with rocks on it so his son could climb on his back.
