Zaky Pillow Simulates The [Muppet] Mother's Hand

Daddy's hands weren't always gentle
Daddy's hands were hard as steel when I done wrong
But Mommy's hands were soft as muppet pillows,
singin' me a good night song:

The Zaky is an ergonomic infant pillow designed by a mom to mimic the size, weight, touch, and feel of her hand and forearm to help her baby with comfort, support, protection, and development. The Zaky can help calm your baby and help your baby sleep better through the night.

The Zaky was originally designed for premature babies that have to be left at the hospital away from their mother – but the Zaky works wonderfully with all babies.

From The Zaky FAQ:
I am a new father and I cannot be there with my newborn child. Can the Zaky help?

If you must go away for a long period of time, leave a Zaky and a loving note to your partner that says something like: "I am leaving my hand so our baby feels my touch until I return..." Zaky’s are perfect for military personnel who are stationed overseas.

Wha-wha-what-wha-what?

I can't even come up with words for this one...

too bad these muppet hands weren't around when helen kirwan-taylor gave birth. cradling her newborns probably bored her to tears.

Mmmmm. Smothery!

From the Zaky FAQs:

DO NOT leave your child unattended while using the Zaky

So, I guess it's good for those moments when you just want to watch your child sleep...or for photo ops!

What I find disturbing is that the Zaky is also pitched for "older children, adults and senior citizens."

Now that we have Thing, does this mean we're moving any closer to having the Adams Family Values crib put into production?

[i tried to snap a picture of that when I came across the movie on HBO4 a few weeks back, but it came out all blurry. -ed.]

Hey! That would make for a good pratical joke

I figure with these and one of those Skinner boxes, I'm all set for at least the next couple years.
