This is how you raise the bitchin’-ist child ever to toddle across a living room floor: give ’em zombies from their first days in the cradle. Come the apocalypse, the kid that slumbers under a Left 4 Dead mobile is gonna be one prepared little zombie hunter. It’s either that, or completely immune to the horror of zombies for his or her entire life. I’d say that either way, that’s a win.
I’m not even gonna lie: I am sick with jealousy that I did not think of this when my son was smaller, and distraught that he is now too old for mobiles. On the other hand, I sort of just want it for me.
On the other, other hand, I’m sure it’s not healthy for a baby if the parents are constantly yelling “Boomer!”
The mobile is light and simple, with wonderful detail on the silhouettes, but for $30 (USD), quality is expected. And don’t think Etsy marketeer SaltyandSweet is limiting these creations to Left 4 Dead. Oh no, there are other zombie mobiles, too, and other games like Team Fortress are represented. But perhaps the most hilarious? Pirates vs. ninjas.
