Things That Make You Go Hmmmm…….

As a mom of 3 kids I have definitely seen my share of amazingly cool children’s products. I have also seen MORE than enough of my share of amazingly weird, odd and completely wrong products too! If you are in need of a good laugh please keep reading…..

Here (in no particular order) is my list of 5 products designed for kids that will really make you wonder how or if some of these products ever made any money…. Things That Make You Go Hmmmm…….


5. The Daddy Saddle or “Daddle” as it called. I don’t know where to start with this one? I really don’t. Strap that thing to my back and let my child ride around on me? Sounds like fun..said NO parent EVER!

Things that make you go hmmmm....... Daddy Saddle


4. The Flying Falcon.  I can still totally remember how heavy carrying around these seats were with OR without a baby in them…    whatever happened to attaching the baby carrier to your stroller? This thing just looks cumbersome and downright uncomfortable. Looks to me right about now she’s wondering why on the earth she bought this thing….


Things that make you go hmmmm.......


3. The Pole Dance Doll. Need I say more? Wow. The only good thing is that no one really seems to know if this is really an actual product or some hoax. Let’s hope hoax.


2. The Thudguard. Learning to walk you fall…you get back up…you get back up..and so on and so on. I survived toddlerhood    as well as a bazillion other people. And my brain still works…well…most of the time.


1. Potty Mitts…perfect for all those 2 year old germaphobes.    Here’s a CRAZY idea…wash their hands with soap and water. Voila. Germs gone.


Unbelievably I could have done a list to about 20 with all the insane products I came across. Honourable mention to the Snoop Dogg Doll (new companion for Barbie?), baby cologne (cause we all HATE the smell of babies right?) and the Nipple Tassle top for kids (I…just…ummm…yeah…wow…why?)

Until next time…stay classy Canada!
