Euuhhhrrr... Plastic Flower Cradle By Philippe Pradalie

I guess if it was the dawning of the Age of Aquarius or whatever, then where else would you put your Parisian love child, but in an injection-molded plastic cradle shaped like a tulip?

It's as if the subtitle of everything that happened between 1965-1975 could be, "It seemed like a good idea at the time." Now I see a baby-holding flower, all I can think of is the annoying, saccharine, gimmick photography of Anne Geddes.
