the Gift Guide we are huge fans of the outdoor sportsperson community,
which is always thinking of exciting new products for sportspersons
to purchase in their ongoing effort to win the ''battle of wits''
against, for example, fish.
we have a very special gift item: camouflage clothing for children.
It's about time! All too often, a hunt is ruined when a deer or
pheasant spots an uncamouflaged baby and flees before Dad or Mom
has a chance to blow its head off. But now, thanks to the ''Kid's
Camo'' clothing line, the baby will be undetectable! In fact,
Dad or Mom better not set the baby down, lest it blend into the
environment and disappear, forcing Mom or Dad to attempt to locate
it by crawling around the ground, sniffing dog-like for the telltale
scent of a loaded diaper.
the non-outdoorsperson parent can benefit from this clothing line.
Suppose you want to go to a swanky restaurant, but you can't get
a babysitter. No problem! Simply put some ''Kid's Camo'' on your
baby and waltz right past the snooty maitre d'! Or let's say you
have to take your baby on an airplane trip. With ''Kid's Camo,''
your baby can scream his or her little head off, but the other
passengers will have no idea where the sound is coming from! You
can act just as annoyed as everyone else!
for day-care center operators are even more impressive. Thanks
to ''Kid's Camo,'' Mrs. Bernice Poodlewicket of Rochester, N.Y.,
was able to take 17 three-year-olds undetected to a matinee showing
of the hit movie Meet the Parents. Four of these children are
believed to be still in the theater somewhere, happily thriving
on dropped popcorn.
