I’ve seen firsthand how crazy new parents can be, but I can’t think of any I’ve met who would be neurotic enough to shell out money for the crap featured on
this list of the most ridiculous baby products of the year.
Fake hands? A crying analyzer? Knee pads so the little guy doesn’t hurt himself learning how to crawl? They’re all here, along side stuff that might well be even dumber.
#1 – Zaky Pillow
This is a set of fake hands that lays against your newborn to trick her into thinking that it’s you. It’s almost too creepy for words. And wrong. So very wrong. Even the description is creepy: “Leave a hand with your child!” We’d like to see the studies of these poor babies 10 years from now who found out their loving parents were really disembodied mummy hands…
#10 – Pee Pee Teepee
Yes, we’ve all been peed on by our baby boys once or twice, but a fabric cone to set over their wee wee just in case? How long is it taking to change that diaper, and how long is he exposed that you really need a cover? And, p.s., we’ve seen the stream of pee in action. It’s a large, large, arc that can shoot halfway around the room. You’re telling us that much force against a tiny fabric cone won’t A) shoot the cone around the room with the pee, or B) reflect the pee back at the baby himself. Yeah, we’re not buying it. Literally. We’re not buying it.
