Humidifiers: Not So Ugly Anymore

I once knew a mom who hid her “Nanny cam” within her child’s oversized humidifier. Not a bad idea? I often wonder if she ever got caught. Initially, I didn’t bother to purchase a humidifier because I wasn’t sure if I really needed one. The air wasn’t dry where I lived. Besides, all humidifiers are bulky and unattractive, right? However, once my son’s first cold blew in, I looked at his red, stuffy, little nose and kicked myself for not having one handy. They apparently now come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Check out the ultra-chic humidifier by PlusMinusZero above. A Japanese design house known as ±0; with the intent to turn everyday objects into art. Purchase it through for guaranteed reliability and service.

I personally own the sleek, futuristic “Compact Ultrasonic Humidifier with Programmable Timer” from Sharper Image thanks to my mom. It’s perfect for a small, contemporary nursery and it gets the job done. Oh, and it’s on sale now for $29.99 from $59.99!

Did you notice the friendly frog humidifier featured in Pip’s room from “Project of the Week: Playful Pip“? It’s also received some wonderful reviews. Shop for the largest selection of kiddie humidifiers from “Crane Adorable Humidifiers”. Ranging from frogs to puppy dogs, baby-wise will ship today and provide from what I can tell, the lowest prices out there.
