It Was Supposed To Be A Joke, But The Baby Mop Has Become The New Uniform For Babies Who Need Work Experience

Robot vacuums and mops are all the rage right now. Everyone wants clean floors without lifting a finger, but not everyone wants to pay for it.
If your floors are always coated with Cheerios and drool, it might be time to invest in the Baby Mop.
The Baby Mop became a real thing
It was all supposed to be a big joke. Advertised in Asian magazines as a way to “make your children work for their keep.” The idea was, if your child is of crawling age, simply dress them in the special onesie, place them on a hardwood floor, and watch in amazement as they spring into action.
The logic falls in the fact the child is just crawling as usual, and the cleaner floors is a bonus, so no child exploitation here, right? “Saturday Night Live” took the joke to another level when they ran this commercial for “Swiffer Sleepers.” And now, the Baby Mop is live!
Top five reasons you need a baby mop
In their blurb for the novelty product, the writers on the website joke the outfit will:
...teach your baby a strong work ethic early on in their life while helping to educate them not to drop food on the floor.
- Teach your baby a strong work ethic early on in their life.
- Your baby will learn not to drop and waste food.
- Baby will get an excellent workout, burn off energy, and do muscle toning. And sleep better too!
- Not having to clean your floors saves you time, so you can spend it doing things you enjoy.
- Save lots of money on house cleaning costs.
It retails on the site for $40
The $40 Baby Mop is the brainchild of U.S. website BetterThanPants.com and was inspired by a Japanese spoof advert of a similar invention.
