I just have learned that I will become a grandma in November. As I am a curious person I wanted to know what is on the market for babies today. I found following

13 rather odd items for babies


If ever the baby should be bald when it is several month old, I still can buy him/her a wig


if he/she cries too much one of these pacifiers


This is meant for toilet training and then he/she


can play with, a stuffed turd !


get a slurp out of the Monkey Bottle Hugger


keep its feet warm in taxi booties


As soon as one tooth shows up a toothpaste puking cat (what else !)


to keep him or her busy, shave the baby


or play with knitted donuts


this lovely crocodile is self speaking


To encourage his/her intelligence a Baby Laptop with fun sounds and lights, a baby safe mirror and keys that light up and teach baby animals sounds, numbers, letters and cute phrases. With such a toy he/her will become a genious !


To walk him/her around in a iBaby Stroller with an iPod dock and adapter with speakers imbedded in the lining to funnel your baby’s favorite songs into her/his ears.


Here I have to admit I don't really see the utility of a barfing Barbie

If I was a descendant of Freud, I would ask about the childhood of these inventors !

So FINALLY! The announcement is made! YAY! Oh! I mean CONGRATULATIONS! of course... :)

Well, the barfing Barbie is for when Mom is expecting the baby brother or sister -- then the little Princess has a doll that acts "just like mommy"!

I do think those taxi slippers are cute! I'm not sure about feeding one knitted donuts though! LOL! Cat puking toothpaste??? Ummm...no! Hello KITTY toothpaste - YES! :)

Congrats Gramma I bet you will spoil the new arrival rotten. I think the barfing Barbie must be for Mama
who might be having a few episodes herself.

There are so many strange things on this list. I'm a little shocked by some of them. Love the knitted stuff though. Congratulations.

Your #8 is hilarious! I can remember it's not too long ago that my toddler was a baby. I often miss that stage, it went by so fast!
