“Make me a vest that looks like a road!” said my 4-year-old, and out of that brainstorm this vest was born.

Buckle up and hold on: zipping over one shoulder is a double-yellow stripe which continues down the back. Blinking on the opposite side is a signal (three picked-up patch pockets, perfect for storing spare racecars). Screech to a halt, and all the ribbing looks like tire tracks. Vroom!
