Babies on Roombas: Endless and Practical Fun!

Babies taking a spin on Roombas is our new favorite Internet trend.

Whenever I see things like this I think, “People are genius!” Technology can have many unintended results and this is one is brilliant. Not only do you get sparkling floors, you get a good laugh and your baby gets a fancy new toy. Sure, there's probably some safety risk, but let's assume that your baby isn't doing this unsupervised and is there anything cuter than a chubby little baby gliding around in circles and laughing?

When I was a kid, one of my favorite books was The Wednesday Witch, about a little girl who flew around town on her family’s vacuum cleaner. And now this?? I’m kind of giddy, because Dream Come True. Clearly, I need to get a Roomba. Let’s hope I can fit on there!
