    Gadget translates baby's cries into various moods

    Taking a page from the Baby Translator invented by Homer Simpson’s half-brother Herb Powell, the $100 “Why Cry Baby Analyzer” attempts to help parents figure out what their wailing bundle of joy is so upset about. While not as accurate as the Baby Translator from the Simpsons (“I have soiled myself… how embarrassing”) the WCBA can apparently detect the… Read More

  • Pirates versus Ninjas mobile for baby's crib

    Pirates versus Ninjas mobile for baby's crib

    While the Pirates versus Ninjas debate has been well-documented, in the interest of good parenting perhaps you should expose your baby to both sides of the argument and let an opinion form naturally. Luckily, there’s a Ninjas AND Pirates mobile that would be perfect to dazzle and delight your offspring as he or she drifts off to sleep. Read More

  • Wow: Carry your baby while looking utterly ridiculous with this strange device

    Wow: Carry your baby while looking utterly ridiculous with this strange device

    Congratulations, America, you’ve finally designed a product that looks dumber than both the Snuggie and Smittens, combined. It’s called the Peekaru Original Fleece Baby Carrier Cover, and it’s ridiculous. Read More

  • Laptops and Diapers: Two essentials in one bag

    Laptops and Diapers: Two essentials in one bag

    Sure you’ve got a new baby on the way, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still wear horn-rimmed glasses and tote your Mac Pro to your neighborhood organic coffee shop. But those damn diapers! Why can’t the kid learn to use the toilet like a civilized adult?! If only there was a smart-looking messenger satchel that pulled double duty (or is it “doodie”?) as… Read More

  • ‘Baby Mop’ cleans floors with crawl power!

    ‘Baby Mop’ cleans floors with crawl power!

    Truly a two-birds-with-one-stone product, the Baby Mop concept seems to be a divisive topic. Some people seem to think it’s a good idea while others call it “downright disgusting.” I’ll try to stay out of it, as I don’t have any children of my own. Read More

  • Rumor: Canon tells employees to make babies so that Japan can live

    Rumor: Canon tells employees to make babies so that Japan can live

    Japan has a serious demographic problem. It’s already the world’s oldest society (22% of the population are 65 and older) and the birthrate stands at 1.34 (but a birthrate of 2.0 is needed to maintain Japan’s population). So what does Nippon do? Answer 1: The country produces lots of robots to keep up productivity. Answer 2: The economy, in this case Canon, lets employees go… Read More

  • BabyToupee.com is one-stop shopping for bald babies

    BabyToupee.com is one-stop shopping for bald babies

    While many parents worry themselves to death that they’re going to give their children some sort of weird complex, I say to get it over with early by making your baby wear a toupee. After all, society has it in for bald people – bald babies are likely no different. Look at that kid wearing “The Donald” – ha! What a goof! He looks like Donald Trump if Donald Trump… Read More

    USB 2.0 Baby danglers

    Yeah, I don’t know what these are either. But they cost $22 for the 2GB version and $37 for the 4GB. I think I found something like this in my stool once, though, now that I think back. Read More

  • ITT phones for babies, kids, the elderly

    [photopress:IMG_1486.JPG,full,pp_image] I’m trying to find a website for these guys but these were fairly cool phones for kids and older folks who might need a little help finding the buttons. The phones are all GSM compatable and as you see there are three styles: Baby, Easy, and some sort of DECT cordless phone with images instead of a number pad. Pricing and availability are, as… Read More

    MP3 player for infants: Just what growing brains need


    Shake the baby — with block-rockin’ beats! The SweetPea3 is an MP3 player with 256MB of memory designed for kids 0 to 8 years old. It is a “robust” music player that is clad in pink or blue “food grade” rubber and lasts about 40 hours on one AA battery. It also comes with music and stories from Susie Tallman and Jim Weiss. I don’t know why you… Read More

    ITZBEEN: For people with babies, maybe Doug


    I just saw this little baby gadget over the weekend and thought it might be interesting for those of you who got babies for Christmas. It’s called the ITZBEEN and it’s basically a timer that lets you tell when you last did something — changed junior, fed him or her, and checked the old asscloth. There’s even a switch for reminding you which dug they little one… Read More

  • Ro-BOTS! Battle Wheels Robot Warriors in action

    If you’re thinking about a fairly cool, fairly inexpensive gift for the holidays, take a look at Battle Wheels. These are wheeled robots that are supposed to beat the heck out of each other so their parts fall off, sort of like Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Robots only mobile. I played with the robots with Kasper and he enjoyed pulling the heads off of both Saturnus Guardian of the… Read More

  • It's a Spoon with Airplane Wings for Babies

    It seems sometimes as if I’m the only person I know right now who doesn’t have some sort of baby either on the way or recently birthed. I am thankful for this. That does not mean I don’t like babies (I do) or am sterile (though I try). That also does not mean I dont’ keep my eyes out for fun baby stuff for the young offspring of my friends/co-workers/bartenders/cab… Read More

  • Your Baby Wants Nipple Adapters

    Today was a normal day, right? I had some lunch, hung out, and did my standard Yahoo! search for the word “nipples.” And guess waht! Somehow it returned something SFW for us to share with you gadget-obsessed nerds. The Yahoo! business site tells the story of the Nipple Adapter, a gadget every parent of an infant or toddler should have. Put simply, it turns the mouth of any… Read More
