My name is Chris Nichols the inventor of the Card Caddy. When my step-son was around 5 years old, he was obsessed with Uno. I grew up playing card games of all sorts with my grandmother and wanted to foster that same love of cards with him. We carried around a couple of decks of cards, bound with rubber bands, stuffed back into the box, or just scattered in the bottom of a my wife's purse. When it came time to play - often somewhere without a level, solid surface for the draw and discard piles - the stacks of cards fell over, blew away or slid down into the crevice of the car seat.
