Hilarious Kia ‘Space Babies’ Super Bowl Ad Tackles Tough Parenting Question (VIDEO)

LOL 18

babylandia"Mom, where do babies come from?" That's the universal question that makes most parents cringe. We may practice, plan, and believe we're prepared, but I don't think there are many parents alive who don't at least shudder  a little when their child finally pops the question. 

I have every intention of being open and honest with my children about sex, but ... just not yet. Especially when it comes to my 4-year-old daughter. So when she's gotten close to the subject, let's say my answers haven't gotten close to the real deal. However, they haven't been quite as inventive as the one the dad in this Kia Super Bowl commercial gives in which he introduces his son to ... Babylandia.

He speaks of this elaborate land in outer space where all babies --- from human to adorable little panda babies -- begin, then they "penetrate" the earth in a rocket before dropping down in little pink and blue parachutes to their mommies and daddies.

It's sweet and cute, but the boy looks skeptical, and starts to say that his friend Jake said, "babies are made when mommies and daddies ..." All of sudden dad commands the car to play "Wheels on the Bus," and the day (or at least the dad) is saved (thus the part about this being a car commercial).

It's cute, and pretty darn relatable for many parents. Sure some just start right in with the straight talk, but others of us, for all of our good intentions and well thought out strategies, tend to drag our feet a little on this one. Eventually we will get there with bold honesty, but for now, I may borrow Babylandia. Hey, at least it mentions penetration.

Check it out and see what you think:

What do you think of the commercial? Have you had a hard time talking to your kids about the birds and the bees?

How something can be so innocently cute and doggone suggestive at the same time beats me, but it is hilarious!

That's funny!



When I was pregnant with my third, my oldest was almost 5 and after a discussion of how the baby was growing inside he was told that we would go to the hospital and the dr would help the baby out. He asked how the dr got it out and I answered "I don't know honey, I'm not a dr." I was not about to tell him the truth. LOL!

Very cute. I have a 5 year and he asked where do babies come from me and my husband told him god pickes out special people to carry his angels he said ok. Well not I'm goign to be having my second son soon he wanted to know how he come out and I told him the belly button but of course my husband and in laws told him I'm wrong so I told them I rather have him think that way then the truth because he is a little young to understand and I don't want him to freak out and if you don't like me telling him that then you come up with something but they don't they just inore him when he ask.

I thought it was cute for little kids. My dd is a bit older so I don't lie.

That was funny.  I just explained simply about the egg and sperm, but they don't know how it happens yet.

I just explained according to their understanding.
