You see this picture to the left? You’re going to think it’s an April Fool’s joke, but it’s not. That’s a real product you can buy that’ll make it look like your baby is bursting through your chest like those monsters from the Aliens movies. It’s called a Peekaru Original Fleece Baby Carrier Cover:
Let a Peekaru Original simplify the process of getting out of the door. Wear your Peekaru over any baby carrier and you’re ready for cooler weather. Add a coat and you’re ready for winter. Whether it’s a crisp fall evening walk, a winter carnival, or a springtime parade, the Peekaru will keep your baby toasty warm without the clutter.
Baby Wearing Made Warm
The Peekaru Original is a fleece vest that zips over a soft baby carrier to keep you and your child warm. It fits comfortably over all carriers, including Baby Bjorns, Hotslings, Ergos, Mei Tais, and Wraps.
Made from 85% recycled fleece, each Peekaru Original saves approximately 25 plastic bottles from reaching the landfill. Feel good knowing that while you are holding your baby close, you are also helping the environment.
So apparently it doesn’t actually come with the baby carrier itself, it just makes you look like your baby is trying to claw its way out of your chest cavity. In all fairness I should probably point out that the other pictures on their website aren’t quite so… cinematic. Most of them make the baby look more like some kind of weird tumor growing on your chest or back. Which reminds me of a scene from Hellboy II:
This monstrosity making apparel will set you back about $80. Which is probably worth it as it’s sure to make people get the hell out of your way at the local mall.
