I read that initially and thought 'yes, you should have 1,000 in a savings bank for your baby. That sounds like a good place to start.'

Yeesh.

What.

Surely this has to just be trying to get free publicity for Tiffany and they don't expect to actually sell any of these, right?  ...right?

Reading the title I thought this would be a report of some kind of blog entry discussing whether it's necessary to set aside $1k in child care money, or to start a kid out in life with some savings or investment. That might be a legitimate topic of discussion. But THIS is ridiculous.
