The Illuminated Jetbib Feeding System is a brilliant baby bib that hit the market in 2010. From what I can deduce, it was first sold via Thinkgeek.com. This is an oldie but goodie. I had tweeted about this two years ago. I was reminded about it this week, which is why I’m writing about it now.
As you can see from the picture below, it is a baby bib that features a runway with blinking LED landing lights and an airplane with a detachable spoon on the front. It’s the perfect companion to any parent who loves to things like, “Here comes the airplane in the hangar!” The airplane has blinking lights on the wings, and comes with three detachable spoons.
I just love it! I enjoy the gag about the airplane coming into the hangar, even though I don’t have any kids. I’ve always thought it was a funny line to say to someone who doesn’t want to taste what you’re asking them to eat. If I did have a baby, you can bet that I’d get one of these bibs. It is simply too awesome not to! Heck, I’d be happy just to have the airplane and spoon.
The bib cannot be laundered since it is battery powered. That is a convenience issue, but this a novelty item, so it’s not as though you would be using it every day. The cleaning limitations are mentioned in a short product video that I found on YouTube.
Unfortunately, it looks as though the Jetbib has been discontinued, but not necessarily yet out of stock. From what I found find at the time of this writing in March 2014, a few are still available from uncommongoods.com. Get one now before the last one flies off the shelf.
