It's bound to happen to all of us. You're on the bus or at a holiday party, and someone shows up with a baby. An ugly baby. What do you do when you come face to face with him/her? My mom always said the best response is: "Now, THERE'S a baby!"
That is exactly what I thought when I saw these vintage doll house infants at a sale. I was drawn to their itsy bitsy size, but on closer inspection, they're actually quite hideous.
Limbs fashioned from bump chenille (!), expressions of colicky misery on their tiny plastic faces. As a special bonus, they appear to be dressed in straight jackets. Maybe back in the day, that was the solution when Mommy needed a night of playing Bunco and drinking Margaritas with the girls.
Now, THERE'S a baby!
