Brooke Shields jokes she'd 'love' to implant a tracking chip in her kids

If implantable microchips can track lost pets, why not your kids too?

Brooke Shields, for one, is all for it.

After hearing about a soccer team in Argentina offering season tickets in the form of an implanted microchip, Shields' wheels started turning.

"I'm not thinking of it in terms of sports as much as I would love to put one in my kids,'' Shields said on TODAY's Take Thursday. "I honestly am not completely against chipping my children."

The Argentinian soccer team, Club Atletico Tigre, announced the "Passion Ticket" on Twitter Wednesday.

It allows die-hard fans to get a chip planted in their arm that can be scanned for entrance to games.

The embedded gizmo carries basic information about the season-ticket holder, but does not have tracking abilities.

Shields, the mother of two daughters, noted how the family dog has a microchip that helped authorities return the pooch after he ran away from their home in New York City.

Calling it "creepy and futuristic," the actress nonetheless had an idea of how to get the device implanted in her girls.

"I thought I would do it in their sleep,'' she joked. "Mom, what was that? 'Oh, I don't know it's a mosquito.'''

She already has a brand name picked out for her fictional product.

"How do you find your children if they somehow get kidnapped?'' she said. "I like the tracking device. I like a little LoJack on my babies. I want a BabyLo — a baby LoJack."
