Latest must-have for baby -- a pram with a portable air fan.

TEL AVIV, Feb 5 (Reuters Life!) - Most parents worried about their baby getting too hot in a pram will adjust blankets or head for shade, but one dad wanted a more high tech solution for his young daughter -- a portable air conditioner.

"At first I was trying to cool her off with a hand-held fan. Then I thought of a much simpler idea -- a little air conditioner," Israeli Ofir Ben Aharon told Reuters.

The device, which weighs less than 2 kg (4.4 lb) looks like a motorized fan attached to the end of about a half-meter long pipe that can be fitted under a typical pram.

An air vent connected to the other side of the pipe is fitted with a puppet so it can be propped inside, looking like just another of baby's stuffed toys.

Ben Aharon says he wants to market the battery-operated machine in Europe and the United States in the next few months, although he has not yet come up with a retail price.
