The last time I was at the store, I stopped on the baby aisle to get some more pacifiers. I saw that our twin girls’ preferred pacifier had a few different design options, one of which was a whole dollar cheaper than all the other designs! Decision made. I could see no reason why we should pass up the cheaper “nighttime” pacifiers for the dollar-more “princess” and “attitude” pacifiers. The nighttime pacifiers have cute little moons and stars and sleepy-eyed bears on them, which I found to be much more appealing than the “I’m cute and I know it” attitude ones. Cuz let’s face it, all babies aren’t cute all the time.
I don’t know why I never learn my lesson. If a deal is too good to be true, it probably has some kind of flaw. As in these pacifiers. You don’t get a good brand of pacifier for cheap unless there’s something wrong with it. These “nighttime” pacifiers glow in the dark. Glow in the dark pacifiers? You gotta be kidding me. Now in the middle of the night when a baby is fussy and I grab a pacifier for her from my night stand, she’s not going back to sleep. She’s hanging out in her crib, waving around her fun glowing “toy”. And these things stay all creepy-pale-green-glowy for a looooong time.
Apparently, someone with a great marketing pitch can get just about anything patented. Here are some more.
