For the child of model parents
Infant rattles artfully carved in the shape of parents' faces — and more in our collection of bizarrely elite consumer products
 
For those who have everything: Customized infant rattles cameobyrux.com

Don't let the new parents feel forgotten when you buy a gift for a baby. Every Cameo by RUX infant rattle ($180) immortalizes the facial profiles of Mom and Dad in its two barbell-like ends. Using profile photos of both parents to guide a lathe, the company's Queens, N.Y., workshop carves each one-of-a-kind toy from fine maple. Designer Russell Greenberg, a new father himself, says "this is intended to be a family heirloom that's very special." Source: The New York Times
