Three Unusual Baby and Toddler Products, Volume 3
1. The Zoo by Beaver Works is a peculiar product for all ages. It targets the elusive niche market of Robert Lopshire fans who both want to see animals in cages and who give stuffed animals to their kids with gluttonous abandon.
Put simply, The Zoo is a 5-foot-tall plywood cage with elastic bars that exists for the sole purpose of storing stuffed animals. At 60" x 11" x 22" it takes up about 2 square feet of floor space and stores 90 medium sized stuffed animals. Check out the customer photo gallery. Skinner Box anyone? I’m still liking my Boon Animal Bag.

2. Sneeze Sleeve solves the age-old problem of kids sneezing. It’s a real dilemma. You can’t plug their noses with wax without their heads exploding. The next logical measure is to wrap this colorful fleece sleeve around your child’s arm and instruct him to sneeze onto the sleeve instead of onto friends. You would think his friends would get covered with mucous only once before they give him an "education" in manners. So one must assume your child is a bully and intentionally sneezes on people. Buy him a Sneeze Sleeve. For ages 2-and-up.
3. The Potty Song is a professionally recorded song that helps you serenade your child in the bathroom. Pooping to music is called "recognizable, consistent and positive reinforcement that will encourage your toddler to potty train."
For $9.95 you download an MP3 of the song customized with your child’s first name. If your child’s is named Jeff, Kim, Merzalina or an equally unusual name not previously recorded, then you’ll have to order a CD for $12.95. Or you could just make up your own song. "Potty! Potty! Potty! Potty! Meow! Meow! Meow! Meow!"
