A method of scampering that many manufacturers of baby supplies utilize is Combining. An example of this is the infant travel systems. These systems combine an infant car seat, carrier, and stroller. The combination gives parents an easier way to transport the infants while allow the manufacturer to guarantee that all products are purchased from them.

Representing the rearranging and the combination method of scampering, modern cribs have became a one stop bed solution. For example, not only do they come with changing stations attached on the side of the crib bed, the beds themselves can be altered to be cribs, toddler beds, daybeds, and eventually full sized beds. Assumedly, this should be the only bed that an individual should ever need.
Ancient philosophers discussed the concept of “re-thinkers” as a negative attribute of progress and stated that very few people come up with their own things. This may be true to some degree, however the process of scampering allows for the improvement on old ideas and products. If there was no process by which a society could add a modernization to an old idea or product, then we would be stuck in a civilization that didn’t have seatbelts or airbags in our vehicles. We would not have healthier foods and better health care and technology. I feel that both in my personal and professional life that scampering will allow me to take the information that I have and combine it with previous concepts in an attempt to improve my situation.
