(Scroll down for video) A new idea came about to allow a newborn baby to help with the cleaning around the house, according to video uploaded to the Internet.
The Baby Mop, a one-piece suit with built in mops at the arms and legs, lets the children clean the floors as they crawl around while getting their exercise.
The Baby Mop was inspired by a parody of a Japanese commercial for a similar invention. The website BetterThanPants.com decided to give the product a shot, which is selling for $40.
"The idea was originally conceived in Japan in the 1990s. They have something called Chindogu, which was a useless inventions," Mike Parker, BetterThanPants.com's press officer, said. "They had a book that came out about 10 years ago about 101 useless inventions. We've seen it. We've seen the commercial floating around, so we've been talking about using it as a real product for years. So we tried it, put this into place about six months ago, and it just went from there."
Parker said the comments he has received have all been positive. However, they have had negative comments about the idea behind the product.
"Some of the comments off the bat were: "I cannot believe you would make a product like this. "We had a good time with the description, but it was all in good spirit," Parker said.
