We've all seen those cute pictures of parents trying to hold headphones playing Mozart onto a woman's pregnant belly, but the Ritmo Prenatal Music System ($100) just takes the cake. This adjustable-strap speaker set hooks up to any MP3 player so that you and dast bebe can enjoy Mozart together - or perhaps some Rosetta Stone language tapes? After all, there might be something to this whole osmosis/making a baby smarter in utero thing, so why not start them on Carl Sagan books on tape young? But, in all seriousness, fetuses can demonstrate reactive listening in the womb (kicking, etc) around 16 weeks gestation, and playing music helps calm your little rib-kicker down so you can get some much needed rest.
