“After the birth of a child there’s always the temptation to say, ‘Yes, it’s cute, but what can it do?’” one reviewer of the Baby Mop explains. “Until recently the answer was simply ‘lie there and cry’, but now babies can be put on the payroll, so to speak, almost as soon as they’re born.”
Relax and breathe—it’s tongue-in-cheek; but you know you want to…just a little itsy bit, right?
Once kiddies arrive on the scene, the first thing that tends to go down the toilet (besides bathroom breaks sans audience) is the time—or energy—to do housework.
Until now, that is. And the solution is so (adorably) simple; wacky product expert Kenji Kawakam instructs on how to get your infant to clean the floors with minimal input:
“Just dress your young one in Baby Mops and set him or her down on any hard wood or tile floor that needs cleaning. You may at first need to get things started by calling to the infant from across the room, but pretty soon they’ll be doing it all by themselves.”
Expectedly, not everyone gets the ‘joke’ part of the novelty item:
“I think this is a disgusting product,” rails one reviewer. “What kind of mum leaves a dusty floor for a baby to crawl around on? And then to add insult to injury, the dust is attached to the baby so it can breathe in all the dust … nice.”
Truth be told, I’m usually too busy looking after my baby to freak out over non-fatal, big, bad detritus. Plus, the mop outfit is waaay too cute to miss out on the photo op, no?
