This Is...Nuts: New Underwear Protects Dad’s, Um, Family Jewels from Getting Hit by the Kids

When it comes to kids, playtime (let’s face it: any time) can be a rough contact sport, which is why the makers behind the popular nasal aspirator aka “snot sucker” aka NoseFrida just released a pair of men’s underwear designed to protect Dad’s junk.

Nope, this is not a joke. Just in time for Father’s Day, Fridababy’s Fridaballs underwear aims to prevent the pain that comes from a swift elbow or foot from flailing kids, and we’ve gotta say, it makes total sense (especially if Dad wants his legacy to, er, continue…).

According to the company’s press release, “Fridaballs—the world’s first kid proof underwear—are designed to simultaneously guard dad’s (Frida)Balls and lineage,” with “reinforced protective pouch to soften the blow and keep dad’s buddies safe” and “patent-pending Heirloom Conservation Technology (HCT).“OK, that last one is probably false.

Know a dad who needs a pair to guard his pair? The underwear is available for for $28, because protecting the goods ain’t cheap.

Yes, babies are fragile. But so are men(’s privates)
