Ridiculous Baby Items 2 - Baby Bling

OK, so there are no 6 month photos to post :( The boys are teething and were being EXTREMELY grumpy last night, so they were not going to have anything to do with being cute in restrictive clothing for mommy. My plan is to do it this weekend, so they will be in much more receptive moods :)

But, since all of you enjoyed my ridiculous baby items post - meaning I enjoyed writing the post and it's my damn blog - I figured I would do it again. This week's spin off will be baby bling. With all the famous people out there having babies (and twins are so in right now, dahling) there are companies that are trying to cash in on all this disposable income. Needless to say, these things seem ridiculous to us, but I'm guessing there is a market for outrageously priced baby items, or these companies still wouldn't be in business:

I'm not sure about you, but binkies are a treasured commodity in our house, but not because they are covered with swarovski crystals, but because we are forever losing them (i.e. Lucy steals them and buries them around the house) and they are an important part of keeping our boys calm and content during a "fuss session". And since we are forever needing to buy more, I just cant justify spending $120 on a pacifier that is just going to end up as a dog toy! But if this is right up your alley, they have coordinating items such as rattles for your favorite "aristabrat".

I have to admit that these are pretty darn funny, and although they aren't ridiculously expensive, I would say that $35 is quite a bit to pay for heels that your baby can't walk in....heck, I will barely spend $35 dollars on heels myself. I'm kinda hoping that Target will come out with their own version, since that's where I buy my super-uncomfortable heels, why shouldn't my niece have price options herself??

What little girl (er, baby) wouldn't want one of these to help her ride off to fairytale dreams?? And to think, the price of your baby girl's happiness is only $15,000!!

Princess Coach Crib

Alright, so if you think that a crib the price of a cheap foreign import is a bit too is a "cheaper" version. When I say cheaper, I mean a bargain price of $5,000!! But, remember, all the other little girls' (again, these are babies) moms bought them the supped-up (sooped, souped??) model and that in buying this version, you are only 1/3 of the mom they are.

Really, I could go on and on with all the crazy stuff, but this is where I will stop for now...I need future material! And, since these options are for the female clientele (or maybe pre-metrosexual babies out there), I will do my due diligence to find some male-focused baby ridiculousness. If you happen to see any yourself, let me know!!

Too funny!!! But I'm with ya . . . I would have a hard time spening $35 on shoes for Kendyll (who doesn't even walk!!) when I wouldn't spend that much on shoes for me!! :-)

Great post!!

Great post!! I love the carriage cribs but not for $15,000 or even $5000.

Too funny. I don't know how my little princess has managed her 10 months without that fabluous baby bling.
