Just a couple amazingly ridiculous baby products…no offense meant to anyone who owns/plans to own any of these.
“We can’t help but get creeped out looking at these disembodied hands cradling a baby. Even worse — they strike us as a blatant SIDS risk.”
So this one doesn’t seem to be something you can run out and buy from Babies R US (yet).
“Doing it for the Kids is a current exhibition put on by [re] design to showcase the latest, most innovative sustainable toy designs from around the globe. Among them, the Placenta Teddy Bear by designer Alex Green. A crafty alternative for those who don’t necessarily want to eat their baby’s placenta, but want to pay their respects to the life sustaining organ by turning it into a one-of-a-kind teddy bear. Green’s ‘Twin Teddy Kit’ ‘celebrates the unity of the infant, the mother and the placenta,’ and enables preparation of the placenta so it may be transformed into a teddy bear. The placenta must be cut in half and rubbed with sea salt to cure it. After it is dried out, it is treated with an emulsifying mixture of tannin and egg yolk to make it soft and pliable. Then, you sew it into a teddy bear.”
BABY HIGH HEELS
A saddle for Dad. This one might actually be my favorite…I’m really tempted to buy this for Darling Husband.
(By the way, the reviews on the Daddle are pretty awesome). http://www.amazon.com/Cashel-The-Daddle-By/product-reviews/B003EWECSC/ref=cm_cr_dp_all_helpful?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending

Seconded on the placenta bear gross factor. I might be a bit too squeamish, but can you imagine if your child started sucking on it’s placenta bear? I couldn’t handle that.

The Placenta Bear is so gross! I have 2 friends that have bought those ridiculous high heels and all I can think is seriously why would you want your infant wearing high heals?

The Ridiculousness of A $5200 Swarovski-Crystal Studded Baby Diamond Bathtub
A $5200 pink, rhinestone-encrusted infant bathtub. I think someone posted this a couple months ago on HB and I couldn’t believe it.
