Invention idea

This is a "Baby Vise". According to the listing: "This is a great item to have around the house or shop. The body is made from a high grade cast iron. The bottom of the vice is a clamp that will attach to any flat surface. The jaws have been polished and they open up to 1". Small enough to fit in your back pocket!"

I thought this would be a great idea for giving Catherine haircuts, clipping Elisabeth's nails, changing diapers, etc.

My main concern is that the 1 inch version wouldn't be quite big enough for them, and I'd probably need 3 or 4 strategically placed Baby Vises to secure all the arms and legs. Let's see, $3.99 each, plus $4.75 shipping....

Hey, it's not like I'm making a Bonsai Baby out of them or anything.

I'm not even going to ask what prompted you to search for "baby vise" in the first place. I think I'd rather not know. :)

Too funny! It's a good thing the jaws have been polished. Maybe that's what I need out for the cats...

vj said...

Yeah, what Chris said. Yikes!

you are very, very wrong, but not as wrong as the BonsaiKitty people.... But, yes, I would greatly appreciate a tool or two to help with the nail-clipping/torture routine.

My husband thinks he'll make a fortune marketing Baby Rohypnol for long car drives and airplane trips. I told him they already do -- Benadryl!!!

I used to clip the boy's fingernails while he was asleep. I think I could have become a pro wrestler after seeing my kids through years of unwanted diaper changes and temper tantrums.

When Dianne visits, ask her to show you the "safe parent baby hold".
