These are some of the specs on the new Toyota Camry. Cool? Yes. I’m especially in love with the fact that you can stream Pandora. Why? Because it finally gives me an option to play kid friendly tunes in my car without having to drag my ipod with me and hook it up through on of those plug-in, dial in through the stereo, doohickys. That means I can strap my kids in, start the car, buckle up, clickity-tap-tap and just like that we’re listening to the Laurie Berkner Band, or They Must Be Giants, maybe a little Happy Monster Band, and even Dan Zane & Friends. This also means I have happy kids singing along to their favorite songs, without a ton of commercials, and without the worry of inappropriate words popping up in songs that no longer seem to be off limits to the radio.
An app to buy movie tickets?? RAD!! Hello DATE NIGHT! I can envision it now…. Driving to the movies, and haven’t yet decided what to see. And, really, in all fairness we haven’t even had the time to look at what’s playing. So while my Mr. is driving I’m scanning what’s playing when, and with a clickity-tap-tap tickets are bought and all we have to do is show up.
I’m loving the looks of the Reinvented Camry. And I promise, not just because of the over-the-top-uber-cool-gadgets.

Naturally, the mom in me cares very much about safety.
Now if Toyota could really reinvent the rain…. OH! If you haven’t yet seen the commercial then check this out. You’ll get the ‘rain’ thing.
