This Boss universal headrest has an 8-inch widescreen TFT monitor and DVD player and sells for less than $200.

When your children outgrow the smiley-face steering wheel, you can still keep them quiet with a nice, educational DVD. Would I date myself too much by suggesting “Bill Nye The Science Guy”?

Headrest monitors used to be reserved for premium luxury cars and custom vehicles on MTV Cribs, but now they’re available at Walmart. Before you comment about the superior economics of portable DVD players and iPads, there are still those out there who prefer the aesthetics of integrated in-car entertainment. Besides, you might need to save the batteries on those portable devices for the long weekend at grandma’s.
