When it comes to our babies, we want only the best. The best clothes, the best bedding, the best toys, the top quality stuff. But for a certain segment of the population, top quality has a top that's over the top. That's where these crazy expensive baby products and luxury baby items come in.
Diamond pacifier? Check! A glittering high chair? Oh yeah. Really, really, really nice curtains? Of course. All of these are insanely expensive and not all that useful, but fancy babies need fancy things, so you better pony up (maybe for a golden pony?).
If you want only the finest and latest cool stuff for babies and money isn't even one bit of an issue, then the overpriced baby products on this list are just what you're looking for. They're mostly all available for sale, and the ones that aren't... well, they are. You just have to know who to ask.
Gold Rocking Horse
Japanese jewelry designer Ginza Tanaka made a 24-karat-gold rocking horse for Prince Hisahito, the young man next in line to become Japan's emperor. Rumor has it that Jay-Z purchased one for his daughter Blue Ivy.
You, however, can't buy this, as it's not for sale. And you can't afford it.
One of the most well-known and totally useless luxury baby items, this glittering binky features three carats worth of pave diamonds set in 18K white gold. Despite a silicone nipple, it isn’t recommended for actual use in a baby's mouth. So what’s it good for? If you have to ask, you can’t afford it.
Swarovski High Chair
Jay-Z and Beyonce received one of these for Blue Ivy, a high chair studded with thousands of Swarovski crystals. Then, because everyone needs one, they gave one to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West after the birth of their daughter North. They're custom made by a celebrity designer, so you can't just buy one online.
Looking to put your baby in a crib inspired by Magneto’s plastic prison in the X-Men movies? Here's your chance. The Vetro Crib, by Nursery Works, features beautiful curved edges and three mattress heights so your baby can stay in it for over a year. Plus, since so few are made, each Vetro is laser-etched with its own unique number. The mattress is sold separately, of course.
