The Baby Hjölster is a funny western gun holster parody of the Baby Björn infant carrier thought up and made to look real by Dads Andy Herald and Charlie Capen of the entertaining “how-not-to” parenting website HowToBeADad.com. This is one of many made up items that Charlie and Andy have created for their ongoing Bad Product Ideas series.
If this was a real product, it wouldn’t just be for the recently-parented couple with a wagon-wheel coffee table and more pairs of boots than shoes (though it’d be mandatory for those). The Baby Hjölster infant holster carrier would be perfect for anyone who was a little bit country, maybe even a little bit rock ‘n’ roll. It’d also be great for dads with a new kid in town, that just didn’t feel comfortable with conventional baby carriers.
Baby Hjölster! Definitely a bad product idea, but a fun one for sure, and probably especially useful for anyone who needed to quickdraw a baby that just made a flash flood in their not-so-long johns.
