Introducing Screaming Baby Dice, the world's first dice that give plausible reasons why your precious little darling won't JUST STOP CRYING FOR LIKE, FIVE MINUTES! I JUST CHANGED...Sorry.
After many years of in-depth study and using sophisticated statistical analysis techniques, research shows that babies cry a lot. But a few years of semi-attentive parenting also indicate that they don't cry for that many reasons. It's certainly possible that your baby is crying because she's pondering the unbearable ennui that is life in this modern age, but she also might be hungry.
Just roll the dice to reveal one of 36 possible explanations. With those odds, they're at least as accurate as a new parent's intuition.
Screaming Baby Dice make the perfect baby shower gift, or hand them to your seatmates on the airplane so they can amuse themselves for several of the hundreds of minutes your baby will spend making their flight an unbearable nightmare.
Screaming Baby Dice come in your choice of gender normative pink and blue versions. These oversize dice measure 22mm to a side (standard gaming dice are 16mm). The whimsical designs are intended to distract you from the fact that your baby will probably keep crying no matter what you do. But check out the whimsy!
The design for Cranky is also available on our custom pacifiers, which are perhaps the only useful tool in the event of crankiness.
For those that demand only the very best in their infant novelty products, we are producing a limited run of titanium dice. These metal dice make a fine heirloom and will last generations. If you're lucky, one day you can pass them on to your own children, although anecdotal reports from grandparents indicate that grandchildren never cry anyway.
If the campaign funds successfully, we will place the order with the manufacturer immediately. Manufacturing time depends on the volume ordered, but their best estimate is 6-10 weeks. This includes time to receive and review proofs, fabricate the dice, and ship them to our warehouse in the United States. If all goes to plan, you should receive your rewards in or around August.
