Moms and dads who swaddle their babies know that when they’re wrapped up tight, they look just like little baby burritos.
So it shouldn’t be totally surprising that someone finally created a swaddle that’s intended to look like a tortilla. With a matching tortilla hat.
Tortilla Baby, as the product is called, was created by Bon Vivant Baby.
“After all, every mom has made the connection between a swaddled baby and a fully-stuffed burrito,” the Bon Vivant web site reads. “But now that moms have a blanket that actually looks like a tortilla, they can make the ‘burrito baby’ a reality. A Tortilla Baby is cute enough to eat!”
Bon Vivant is an online store that sells “deliciously fun, food-inspired baby fashions that give parents everywhere the recipe for laughter and enjoyment.” Right now Tortilla Baby is the only product it sells, but owner Katharine Owens said sushi baby (seaweed wrap with rice hat), little egg roll (burnt wonton with sweet-and-sour-sauce topper) and crepe baby (chocolate crepe with whipped cream topper) are in production and will be available in January.
“I’m a big packaging person,” Owens said. “I kept hearing the phrase burrito baby and the idea just came to me.”
Tortilla Baby sells for $48, but the site is running a 20 percent off holiday special with code JOLLY.
