Are You A Parent With A Sense of Humour? This Is the Best Baby Gadget Ever

It's tough being a parent. Whether you're a stay at home mum or dad or you're balancing childcare with another job outside the home, your work is never truly done. 

At least when your children are that bit older, you can rope them into helping around the house with some little chores, teaching them responsibility at the same time.


Babies, though, are a whole other ball game. Until now.

According to, the innovative Baby Mop is the answer to your prayers, and will:

    •  Transform your aimless crawling baby into a cleaning machine
    •  Save tons of money on house-cleaning costs
    •  A soft and cosy onesie made from 100% cotton
    •  Also very effective if you're looking to polish the Porsche
    •  Teach your little one the virtues of a strong work ethic
    •  Broom handle attachment coming soon
    •  Crawl! And the dirt is gone.

The Baby Mop will set you back €38.95 and comes in three sizes; 3-6 months, 6-9 months and 9-12 months.


Tongue planted firmly in cheek, Firebox adds:

"Ask yourself this: Can you actually remember anything that happened before your 2nd birthday? Almost certainly not. So with this in mind, would you really begrudge your mum and dad if they had decided to use you as a lovely smiling, gurgling Baby Mop?

"After all, you'd only be crawling around and exploring the kitchen floor anyway, so they'd be crazy not to dress you up in something that enhanced the sweeping process a little, right? Your loving parents spent those long years keeping you as clean as a whistle – isn't it only fair that you should give something back?

"Whether you were used as a squidgy human broom or not, you now have the chance to metaphorically pass the torch and endow your baby (as well as your friends' and relatives' babies) with the virtues of a strong and diligent work ethic.

"Made from 100% cotton, this soft and cosy onesie is covered in ultra-absorbent mop microfibres to transform your aimless crawling baby into a cleaning machine. So don't go forking out hundreds of pounds for a new vacuum or a house cleaner, let your baby do what it was born to do.*

*Explore your home in a warm onesie that just happens to also clean the floor really, really well."
