Lullabelly MP3-Player Belt Brings Tunes to the Womb
It's never too early to set off on the road to Overbearing Parenthood. But before you buy the tennis racquet, book the violin lessons, download college applications, or even order the complete 'Baby Einstein' collection, you might want to start with something even more basic, intuitive, and natural... like blasting music into your unborn baby's brain.
A new product called the Lullabelly allows expecting, (over)eager mothers to do just that by strapping an MP3 player tightly to their stomachs. Think of it as an in utero iTunes. With nothing more than the special Lullabelly belt and the requisite music player, pregnant women everywhere will now be able to create their own prenatal concert hall, undoubtedly guaranteeing that their child will, indeed, be a genius. Available in the soothing, brain-building shades of pink, green, or blue polka dot (created, presumably, with the future Liberace market in mind), the Lullabelly features volume control, a detachable speaker, and a handy little pocket to hold the player.
If mothers want to bombard their babies with Beethoven, or fill their fetuses with fugues, that's cool. We'd just probably choose something a bit more lively, in the hopes that our baby blogger would pop out doing this. [From: Geekologie]
