Baby Link Roundup #6,419
Toddler Mussolini riles the crowd into a frenzy
- Lunch bag art blog. A dad’s lunch break project for his kids. @#$%^&*! that’s cool.
- News: One-year-old found under floorboards… complete with keepsake photo.
- Product: Diaper loading bodysuit. Geek joke.
- Onfim doodles on his school work, in the 11th century. Click the thumbnails. Don’t miss the ‘Me and My Dad’ drawing. Dad is a warrior.
- New baby! Adrienne and Jim of Baby Toolkit were losing street cred as their kid grew older, so they did what any self respecting baby bloggers would do. Congratulations! [Sober sidenote: sometimes when a baby blogger never mentions his or her kids, it's because there are none. Please, be a discerning reader when you consume product and parenting advice.]
- Fetus cookie cutter. DaddyTypes says it all.
- Z Recs interviews Carter’s CEO about tagless baby burns. Ongoing coverage of the story behind the headlines.
- Holiday gift buying reminder: RetailMeNot has web store coupons.
- Thinga-reader Groovymarlin shares: Thomas the Train costume
- Thinga-reader Jen shares: the Cadbury Bunny costume
- Thinga-reader Bob shares: Mutant Chiroptera and rabid infant Chiroptera

- Thanksgiving masking, 1911. Forget Halloween. On Thanksgiving you don a costume and go door-to-door hoping for pennies and fresh food.
- Baby wagon, made in 1808, photographed in 1921. Where will your plastic Little Tikes wagon be in 113 years? Yep, don’t make ‘em like they used to.
- Infant cages outside a nursery in 1946. And you thought babycage.net was a joke. I’m guessing these cages were meant to keep out flying insects.
- Shop window filled with baby strollers, 1920, and a second one. Count on Heywood-Wakefield for quality wicker carriages.
- The saddest 6-year-old birthday party ever. Eleven kids. One sort of happy. Nice dress uniforms though.
- Garbage pail kids, 1912. Or, early adopters of ‘reduce, reuse, recycle.’
- Count the baby proofing violations in this kitchen. 1943. I count 10 if you consider the toddler years.
