This may be my absolute favorite baby gift idea. Introducing "The Tickle Monster Laughter Kit". Kit includes a book about a monster with big furry paws who just arrived from Planet Tickle along with some big furry adult-sized mitts. The mitts have holes for your fingertips so you can tickle your kid to death while easily turning the pages during momentary time-outs.
But the BEST thing? The best thing is that "The Tickle Monster Laughter Kit" was created by Josie Bissett, most famously known for her role as Jane Mancini on the first (and only in my eyes) Melrose Place. Please familiarize yourself with her work here. Well done, Jane. There is life after Sydney and Michael, after all.
