Baby Steps

Is your baby on the blink? Leaking, shrieking, and with no reset button in sight? If all practical advice has failed, then why not turn to... Infant Tech Support! Sadly, the tech support team is unavailable at this time, but we can offer you absolutely the next best thing: a troubleshooting flowchart.

It may not cheer up the child, but this playful magnetic set is sure to help keep hapless parents from whimpering. Spread the set of businesslike arrows, process steps and decision boxes across the surface of a fridge, filing cabinet or metal door, and then have fun arranging them into all kinds of questionable parenting advice. You detect an unpleasant odor: will you, a) "take the baby outside", b) "locate a towel immediately" or c) "offer baby a cash bribe"? When dealing with such temperamental equipment as a next gen baby, a little humor upgrade might just save you from a total meltdown. Made in USA.

Many years after artist Tiffany Ard discovered her inner-nerd, and after the birth of her own son, she started a line of Nerdy Baby products. As a new mom, Ard felt overwhelmed by all the products designed to make babies smart and successful, so she decided to take the "brilliant baby" idea to the extreme. collection

      Great baby shower gift for the new parent who has everything - including a sense of humor! The flowchart shows that no matter the best laid plans, humor is the survival technique that every parent needs to embrace.

          What a great gift idea for the person who needs nothing. The magnets are wonderful, only I wish they came with their own display board. But we created our own to make it specific for the person we were giving it to. Super gift idea for a new dad!

                  This got passed around and around at a baby shower and several folks asked where to find this. The tag I used said something about "For when your husband is home alone with baby." I will give this as a gift to other friends with "clueless" husbands!

                    I bought this for my sister's birthday. She and her husband have an infant (my neice) and I knew they would have fun with these. My sister's favorite magnet was the one that says "Ask rhetorical questions in a high pitched voice." Who doesn't do that with their baby? ;)

                    Definitely a fun gift for new parents!

                            We have a lot of new dads working at UncommonGoods HQ right now, so we've been on the lookout for fun gifts for new parents. What would make this flow chart a great gift-- if each piece were a magnet? If we included instructions? Other ideas?

                            Thanks for the question, Scott! This flow chart can be used as a fun game during baby showers (guests can arrange the pieces to create baby thought scenarios), then younger children can play with the set by arranging the pieces in patterns. As the child grows, parents can work with him/her to build good communication skills and learn about expressing emotion using the pieces.

                            I don't think any kid or parent would use this. Kids want pictures, and parents want sleep. Maybe if they were magnets, they could be used more on-the-fly.... parents could arrange while making lunch for the kids, and kids could play with them while parents cook!

                            new parents and not washable ? new parents and small enough to choke on? are you joking? magnets, colorful, thick for little hands IF you are suggesting the children would play with them later. also, IF you are marketing as a teaching aid, they need to come in a little briefcase with baby's monogram.

                            Have to agree, I don't see the point. I have a baby right now and I can't see what use I'd have for them. They aren't that cute either--rather boring choices to put on them.

                            would be better as magnets!

                            I do not see the point in this. It would be entertaining for maybe three minutes before you wondered why you bought it. this is not something a new parent should be spending money on. If you want to do something like this just cut out scraps of paper.

                            Just enjoy your baby. These would serve to distract you rather than help you read their little minds. Babies want our full attention
