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.
I don’t get it, I don’t like it and I want it to stop right now.
LEANNE: Clearly an ironically dark statement on the tribulations of parenting. Think of it as baby taxidermy.
GRANT: I tried to make this look fun, like finding a baby head planter — thinking, 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.
LILI: Who is behind this? Who could possibly think that this is a good idea?
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!
MARIANNE: I don’t want to play anymore.
