The Most Ridiculous Baby Products I Have Seen (Friday Frivolity)

The Friday Frivolity hosts are continuing our baby theme for the month of January. We’ve had Geeky Pregnancy Announcements and What NOT to Say to a Pregnant Woman. This week we are talking about bad parenting gifts. I opted to go with these ridiculous baby products that might make good gag gifts, but I am worried for humanity if people really think these are life changers.

Some of the most ridiculous baby products on sale today including wee wee covers, apptivity infant seat and more.

 

 

My first thought when I saw this week’s topic was this classic clip from Whose Line is It Anyway about gift ideas rejected by the Wise Men.

Chia Pet, tee hee, snort, giggle. Water skis… ha ha ha! Sorry, where was I?

The Peepee Teepee

I am the mom of a little boy. I can tell you first hand, these are a waste of time and money. A washcloth or cloth diaper will do the trick if you really want to avoid a shower. Sorry to burst your bubble new parents, but grosser things are going to happen than a little urine sprayed around.

 

The Baby Mop

BABYMOP - Your Baby Helps Cleaning the House. Great Combo: Cleaning Mop + Rompers = BABYMOP

Make the kid start earning his keep!

 

Talking Pee and Poop Alarm

Sync with your phone to let you know when the baby needs to be changed. Includes an alert to let you know when baby is more than 15 m from your phone. Or you could do as parents have done for millennia and actually watch your kid and check her diapers occasionally.

Baby Lasso Diaper Changing Assistant

I am not sure this was actually a real product or just a prank. You put the baby’s ankles in the straps and then loop it over your head to keep them from rolling while you change them. There are a few You Tube videos purporting to be actual users but the company’s website no longer exists. I only added this old Amazon link if you want to read the hysterical review.

Apptivity Seat

Fisher-Price Ipad Apptivity Seat, Newborn-to-Toddler

Get their technology addiction started in infancy.

 

Crib Dribbler

Prank Pack Crib Dribbler

Fill it up and baby will feed himself leaving you time to yourself …

NO NOT REALLY. This final one is actually a hysterical prank gift box complete with testimonials and faux coupons for “infant energy drink” on the back. You put a real gift inside and tape it up.

I only wish the others were pranks too.

 

Now on to the link-up! 😀

    I can’t believe those peepee teepees are real! Golly, you sure found some ridiculous stuff!

    1. Audrey Humaciu

      There are a few different brands of them. They might work for newborns, but the second the kid starts getting the wigglies there’s no way that is staying in place.

  2. Haley Bradley

    Haha with my first kid I thought peepee teepees were amazing… didn’t buy them (I’m so glad). Then I realized just to flip the diaper over them and save myself from the pee shower. Now that I’m a mom of 3 I just happy if I don’t have spit, snot, or pee on me somewhere!

      I got the eye roll when I mentioned them to one of my SILs (with 2 boys) she clued me in real quick. We used cloth diapers so I always had a spare for coverage.

  3. Sarah Eliza @ devastateboredom

    Oh my gosh, these are hysterical! Except the appetivity seat which kind of made me cringe… too real to be funny, haaaa. The gag gift box is extra awesome — when I got to that one I went “no way…” …with justice, as it turns out. 😜

      If you get the gag box you can just play along that you think it is a great idea. 😉

  4. Shelbee on the Edge

    Haha! I have two little boys as well. Urine, urine every where! And that is probably the least gross of all the kid mishaps. Honestly boogers gross me out way more than urine!

      My tolerance for “gross” certainly skyrocketed in a hurry when I became a mom, especially a boy mom. So many orifices so much… well, moms know.

  5. WebMDiva

    You can’t know the happiness I feel when one of my posts gets a nod of approval! Thank you so much!

    I’m cracking up over your list of baby items! The pee pee teepee, crib dribbler, & lasso assistant are hysterical! Do people really buy these things? LOL. Too funny!

      Glad you have joined the link up. I still giggle about the Windex one.

  6. Coffee Mounds & Lipstick Clouds

    BAHAHA these are so funny! The pee pee teepee made me LOL. How ridiculous. Kinda crazy that these ideas are making someone a lot of money. SMH. Thanks for sharing!!

      And the peepee teepees have been around at least 9 years so someone is buying them.

  7. Charlene

    These crack me up! So funny!

    1. Audrey Humaciu

      Aren’t they a riot?
