Prank Baby Shower Gift Leaves Parents Scratching Their Heads

Get the new parents in your life real good with the Crib Dribbler. It's completely fake but totally worth the confused looks and awkward laughs.

Kids can be animals. Of course, they don’t usually earn that title until around the terrible twos when they take to playing in their poop, destroying their playroom and throwing their food.

But you can give the infant in your life that honor a bit early, in utero, with the Crib Dribbler.

Thanks to its convenient hamster bottle design that hangs from the side of any standard-sized crib, this feeding system will keep your baby full and content for hours on end, without the need to hitch them to your nip. It comes in two convenient sizes – the “Over-Nighter” for babies that like to eat in the early hours of the night and the “Weekender” for parents that just need to get away.

Each dribbler is made from recycled plastic syringes, so it’s good for the environment, works well with any brand of water, juice, formula or milk and comes with 12 indicator stickers so that you know when the drink has gotten too hot or cold.

You’ll even get a $4 off coupon for a jug of infant energy drink with every purchase.

This is the perfect gift for any soon-to-be mommy and will quickly become the top item in her arsenal of essential baby gear … if her baby is a rodent.

Sorry to string you along but the crib dribbler isn’t real. Though it might be a tempting alternative, especially during those late-night feedings.

What’s totally cool, though, is easing a soon-to-be new mom’s end-of-pregnancy burdens with a gag gift that’s sure to make them laugh – and possibly pee a little.

And that’s what the Crib Dribbler is ultimately for. You can purchase it on Amazon for $7.50 and it’ll come with a six-sided box about the size of a phone book packed with jokes and gag graphics.

You can pack your actual gift inside of the box but instead of the high-pitched squealing that we’ve come to expect from baby showers, you’ll get arched eyebrows, WTF looks and eventual laughter when your gift is opened.

At first glance, the Crib Dribbler seems kind of silly and unnecessary. After all, you’re there to celebrate the baby with baby-related things and who really wants to reduce new life to something that you can occupy with a pet feeder?

But the more I got to thinking, the more I realized that this is actually pretty genius. Moms, especially new moms, tend to lose a lot of their identity and who they are after they have kids. People no longer come over to see mom, which can make her long for human contact – and it’s a rare anomaly that mom and dad get to go out and have a laugh.

Sure, it’s a little over-the-top but it’s totally worth letting the overly-tired and very pregnant mom get a laugh out of the deal because when that baby comes, the first few weeks are probably going to be filled with more tears of stress than squeals of joy.

What do you think of the Crib Dribbler? Would you give it to a new mom for a bit of a laugh? Let us know in the comments.
