Creepy: Company Will 3D Print A Replica Of Your Unborn Fetus

3d-printed-fetus-1

We ran a story similar to this over a year ago but this product is slightly different. A company called 3D Babies will ask you to send them between 1 and 5 ultrasound images of your baby and they’ll create a 3D replica which “resembles” your fetus. Given the fact that the 3D print is based on customer submitted images, we’ll really emphasize “resemble” as we don’t except the accuracy to be very high. $200 will get you a small, $400 a medium and $600 a “full-size” 8 inch print. 8 inches apparently being the average size of a 23-24 week old fetus. You can also pick two, uh, poses. Either in fetal position or with arms and legs outstretched.

There’s no contortion of reason that will make this be anything but utterly creepy to us. But what do we know? 3D printing is revolutionizing the world (in a manner), but no one said it would always remain on the good size of the creep zone.

And if you don’t believe our reservations, hit the jump for a bunch more pictures that should drive the point home.

Power Ranger Onesies for Your Little Power Ranger

Power Ranger Onesies Remember the good old days when you’d sing to theme of Power Rangers as the live action program began on television? The show has evolved over the years (it went back on air last February with Power Rangers Megaforce.) It’s got a lot more competition on the small screen but if you grew up with the crew, then there’ll always be that spot that nothing else can replace.

Start your child on the path of righteousness early by dressing them up in these adorable Power Rangers onesies! They might not grow up to love the show as much as you did, but you can always teach them a thing or two about what the Rangers stand for while they’re in their Ranger garb.

Available in blue, green, black, yellow, red, and pink. Where’s the onesie for the White Ranger?

Baby Seat With iPad Stand: Genius Idea Or Worst Baby Brainwashing Garbage Evar?

ipad-apptivity-seat

This is a baby seat by Fisher-Price called iPad Apptivity Seat. It features an articulated arm with a 7 inch mirror at the end, which can be removed and replaced with an iPad. Genius, right? The iPad will then hover right in front of your baby’s face, which apparently is enough of a bad idea to have some people’s heads explode. At least the people in the review section on Amazon. See, even though it states in the product description that the associated application (which you download off the App store and run on the iPad) limits the viewing time to 12-15 minutes, angry parents are screaming bloody murder anyway because it’s apparently super bad to have your baby stare at a screen for extended periods of time. But… it says right there on the description that the application was developed with child development experts, and it times out after a short while, so we’re not sure what the hubbub is about.

Once your toddler gets older, you can then introduce other age appropriate applications, with letters and numbers and sing-alongs and stuff that kids that age enjoy. So we’re thinking the iPad Apptivity Seat is just fine as long as you use it in the way it was designed. Should it be banned (as some reviewers suggest!) because it might encourage some parents to be irresponsible and just play Spongebob on repeat all day? We’re not sure, but if you’re mature enough to handle it, the seat is $75.

Turn Your Baby Into A Tiny Human Burrito

Tortilla-Baby-2

You’re looking at a circular piece of cloth that is 40 inches across. It looks like a tortilla and if you wrap your infant in it, he’ll look like a burrito faster than you can say ‘Taco Bell’. That’s cute, and who doesn’t like cute? It’s half polyester, half cotton and the only colour it comes in is “flour”. It’ll cost ya all of $48.

Baby Shower Cap Could Make Showers A Little Less Annoying

Baby-shower-cap

We imagine that as a young child, having water and soap trickle down on your head and face for no good reason is a source of confusion and stress. Screams and cries aplenty, right? Why not just get the Kangaroo Baby Shower cap. You can still wash baby’s hair, but keep water and shampoo off his eyes. It’s uh, $2.

Turn Your Tiny Tot Into One of the Living Dead

Zombabiez

I doubt your baby has purple guts and white tentacles hiding somewhere underneath his skin, but those are just some of the things your toddle will be sprouting out when she or he has got the Zombabiez zombie costume on.

The idea for the costume came to Stephanie Davidson when the dude she was talking to gave a start upon seeing a crawling baby, exclaiming that he thought that it was a torso-only zombie. She searched for a costume of that sort online and, finding none, decided to make one herself. And now she’s giving parents everywhere the chance to turn their bundles of joy into creepy, crawling zom-babies.

Fortune Cookie Baby Boots

fortune_cookie_booties_1

Depending on who you ask, babies can be a blessing just as much as, well, not one. (We’re not going to go as far as to call them a curse because legal is going to have our heads on a plate if we do) So it stands to reason that at least some people will find the above baby boots adorable. They’re shaped sort of like a fortune cookie, with a long tag sticking out. Clearly, the tag is the fortune and you can choose to either write your own, or let the good folks at Sushi Booties pick them for you. The boots are made from soft plush fleece, with no-slip grip soles, and will set you back $28 for a pair. A nice touch is the Chinese takeout shaped box they come in.

Responsible Parenting: Hang Your Baby Up On A Stall Wall While You Go About Your Business

baby-hanger

Having a child is a lot of work, and involves having to think about a bunch of stuff you normally wouldn’t (we’re assuming, but what do we know, maybe it’s easy: we have no kids). Like… where do you put the baby if you have to ‘go’ in a public restroom? The Babykeeper Basic wants to be that solution. “It is an infant carrier style seat, that hangs from the stall wall in most public restrooms, and can also be used in many public fitting rooms and locker rooms.” Featuring 2 large metal hooks encased in safety webbing, lined with non-slip material, your baby can hang there while you do what you have to do. What exactly happens once you’re done, we’re not exactly sure. Like, can you then use it backpack style? Or frontpack? Where does the baby go?? Back in the stroller? Why buy this if you’re taking him in a stroller? Do strollers fit in stalls?

No. Kids. For. Me.

But if you find this interesting (and not, uh, degrading), then you’ll have to cough up all of $40 to own it.

Foster Your Child’s Talents, They Say

bib

This is the “Goo Period Vicent Van Bib.” It’s a bib for your baby, with a fancy painting frame drawn in the middle. The idea is that your little toddler is going to be a toddler, and he’ll spit, drool and wipe his hands all over it, and instead of it becoming the dirty laundry it should become, you’re going to call it art. Or something. How cute. We’d ‘awwww’ all over the place is babies were the kinds of things we’re into. But we’re not. Well… I shouldn’t speak for Hazel. I’m not. But we do both think that some of you out there will love this, and would probably like to know that it’ll cost you a whole $7 to own your own.
