BRIANA: I usually strive for an air of impartiality in these intros, but I have to say straight out that I don’t understand the appeal of this trend AT ALL. However, several of you spotted it at High Point, so clearly it’s a thing! That’s right, I’m talking about baby heads.

I recently spotted this example on “Pinterest, You Are Drunk”, so at least someone else shares my sentiment about the phenomenon. But what do you think? Are baby heads sweet and offbeat or totally oddball?

MARIANNE: Ick. I don’t like dolls to begin with, so decorating with their eyeless, disembodied heads? No thank you.

KAYLA: This is my nightmare:

I don’t get it, I don’t like it and I want it to stop right now.

LIZ: Ahhh! In general, I try to avoid decorating with items that play starring roles in horror movies. Who is behind this trend…Chucky?!

LEANNE: Clearly an ironically dark statement on the tribulations of parenting. Think of it as baby taxidermy.

KELLEY: Shoot, Bee. Warn a girl before you send out pictures of those creepy things. I’ll have nightmares for days.

KAYLA: Anyone interested in some carry-along accessories? Morning coffee out of a baby head?

JACKIE MCGILVRAY: Some fava beans and Chianti to go with that purse?

GRANT: I tried to make this look fun, like finding a baby head planterthinking, perhaps the Chia Pet look would at least give me a giggle. It did not. Clover or grass (whatever is in a Chia Pet) protruding from the cherub’s noggin only ups the ick factor.

KELLEY: slaps hands over eyes: Ewwww!! OMG, y’all, stop it with the baby heads! Also, what IS in a Chia Pet?

LILI: Chia Pet is from the newly popular to drink (again, why?) chia seeds.

KELLEY: I’m not sure I like this planet.

KELLY SMITH TRIMBLE: Chia is actually very good for you and doesn’t taste too bad. Baby heads, on the other hand, aren’t good for anyone and reflect horrible taste. Thumbs down, fo’ reals.

LILI: Who is behind this? Who could possibly think that this is a good idea?

BRIANA: Well, a girl that I went to high school with is apparently behind these:

I did not like high school. (Coincidence?!)

BRIAN PATRICK FLYNN: Here’s my 2 cents: The appeal comes from the end of the crumbling, neglected mansion look/trend. I think it’s one way to go “Formaldehyde Chic” in a universal, easy-to-do manner.

FARIMA: I am definitely not a fan of this trend. Especially not a fan of the antique baby doll heads. Scary!

LIZ: Ugh, yes. I saw this at a vintage store. It kind of ruined my morning.

MARIANNE: I don’t want to play anymore.

    No, thank you! I just don't care for detached body parts of any sort, whether they be human or animal, heads or otherwise, real or fake.

    I make baby heads out of clay. I make them large about 2 and a half feet. They are usually crying! Check out my website. Mudbender.com

    i agree with CplusE. especially infant heads. We have enough disturbing things happening in this world. That we have to spend money on this. creepy

  5. My relatives all the time say that I am killing my time
    here at net, but I know I am getting knowledge everyday by reading such
    nice articles or reviews.

  6. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new
    to everything. Do you have any tips and hints for inexperienced blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

    Hello, its fastidious piece of writing on the topic of media
    print, we all know media is a enormous source of data.
