Forget the humble dummy, or boring buggy, because Sudocrem have compiled a list of the world’s wackiest products on the market for children. With a little help from their Facebook community, the nations favourite nappy rash experts have scoured the web, and clawed through catalogues, to find some truly off-the-wall items.
At the bottom of the top five finds, as voted for by Sudocrem’s Facebook users, came the Baby Mop. A baby onesie with added mop heads meaning little ones can now do their share of the cleaning, without even having to stand.
Fourth in the list was the Daddle. A saddle that can be easily attached to Dad’s back creating a great new mode of transport for little ones. The products website does warn, however, “knee pads are a must, so don't forget them.”
The Buff Baby Dumbbell Rattle was voted third and apparently, “turns junior into a bench-pressin' body-builder!” Whether this is a good thing or not is unclear, but at under five pounds it might just be worth finding out.
Just missing out on the top spot was the Baby Snot Sucker or ‘Baby Nose-Clear Nasal Aspirator’, as it’s actually called. A clear tube-like instrument which can be inserted into a child’s nose allowing its lucky parent to easily remove any unwanted blockages.
Top of the list, and voted for as the wackiest product for children available, was the Baby Butt Fan. Made by Infant Breeze, the hand sized fan aims to tackle a problem that 79% of UK babies suffer with*, nappy rash. Previous users say, “The Baby Butt Fan is a great alternative to the more common gifts like a shirt or onesie. A sure conversation starter and very memorable!”
“We all had great fun looking through the wacky and wonderful things that are now available for kids,” said Sudocrem Senior Product Manager Nick Lang, “It’s definitely given us all some interesting ideas for future birthday presents! “We advise parents to Clean, Dry and Apply Sudocrem Care & Protect at every nappy change and it looks like number one in the list, The Baby Butt Fan, might just assist with this.”
