Sorry it’s taken me so long to post the answers to our little game. Thanks to those few brave souls who posted their answers. No one got all of them right, but Mike got the closest (good job!). And now what you’ve all been waiting for. . .(drumroll, please!)
1. A gift certificate to a baby spa – enjoy a baby massage or chakra chi or participate in mommy and baby pilates and yoga
TRUE – Although you have to live in California. Check out Baby Spa at the famous Skin Spa.
2. Hand shaped infant pillow – an ergonomic infant pillow designed to mimic the size, weight, touch, and feel of mommy’s hand and forearm to reassure baby as if you’re still there touching him
TRUE – Ok, these are kind of creepy! The product started as a help for premature/Neonatal ICU babies, but is being used widespread now.
3. Crib arm – a sound-activated arm that easily attaches to the side of most cribs. can be set to simply vibrate or to gently pat baby, when the arm is activated.
FALSE – I know some of us wish this was real, but I’m pretty sure it’d be a safety nightmare. Yes, you can get attachments to vibrate your crib, but I know of no arms that reach down and pat your baby.
4. Lullaby renditions of Metallica – a collection of your favorite Metallica songs transformed into beautiful instrumental lullabies
TRUE – I’ve heard it, and it is indeed odd. Listen to samples online at Amazon. You can also find your favorite Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, other rock bands by the same producer.
5. Diamond pacifier – 3 carats set in a 14K white gold base, with silicone mouthpiece and moving handle
TRUE – Yup, it’s true. Evidently one was given to Angelina Jolie as a baby gift. Note that the pacifier is not actually intended for use.
6. Pacifier holder – nylon band connects to pacifier and gently wraps around baby’s head to hold pacifier in place, preventing baby from spitting it out or losing it. not recommended for nighttime and unsupervised use.
FALSE – Danger, Will Robinson! Danger! Can you imagine the safety implications?
7. Rhinestone sippy cup – sippy cup encrusted with swarovski crystals. all rhinestones are encased inside an acrylic plastic cover for easy handling.
TRUE – For a mere $175 it can be yours. Too bad it’s not for actual use, either.
8. Vacuum nasal aspirator – more effective than the bulb syringe, this aspirator connects directly to your vacuum cleaner and draws mucus and phlegm out and traps it in a washable phlegm collector.
TRUE – I know, I know. You thought it was fake. Unfortunately, it is not. Aside from being disgusting, I would think this would be a safety hazard as well. But I guess they cover themselves by telling you not to use it for more than one minute! And can you believe this product is manufactured by more than one company?
9. Talking Jesus doll – 12” sized doll who speaks 18 different lines and over one minute of Scripture.
TRUE – Of course this one is true! He quotes Scripture and has 18 points of articulation. You can also get your Esther, Mary, Moses and David dolls here.
10. Sushi box play food – Includes three types of sushi rolls with shrimp, tuna, salmon roe, egg, condiments, chopsticks, and cleaver.
TRUE – The knife, of course, is indeed fake. But I still find it somewhat disturbing for my 2-year-old daughter to be wielding a cleaver.
11. Bathroom Door Baby Hanger – infant carrier style seat, that hangs from the stall wall in most public restrooms, and can also be used in many public fitting rooms.
TRUE – And doesn’t the baby in the picture look happy? I can just see this being used as a mean prank by a big brother somewhere. . .
12. Dirty diaper drops – no more need for diaper pails. add 1-2 drops to a soiled diaper and smell dissipates immediately.
FALSE – Don’t you wish? Alas, Vapoorizer does not actually exist, nor do dirty diaper drops.
Well, how did you do?
