Neon Baby Gear: Yay or Nay?

Serene colors have been nursery décor staples forever, but this year these soft shades are getting a shake up. Enter: Ultra-vibrant neon. Last year's hottest fashion trend has moved to the kiddie set, so watch for fluorescent shades to show up in everything from strollers (like the Bloom Zen CMYK stroller and the Bugaboo neon collection) and accessories (we love the crazy-bright footmuffs and diaper bags from 7 A.M. Enfant) to nursery décor. (Check out the gorgeous hot pink ideas on Pinterest in everything from changing tables to wall prints.) The future's looking bright.

What do you think of this trend?  Do you like it?  Will you be picking up a little neon baby gear?

The 80s were over a coule of decades ago. Maybe some neon on the stroller for safety, but none planned for the nursery. Ewwww.....

I don't like the stroller or the greens/yellows and can't see the nursery in those colors but I do like the diaper bag and other stuff in hot pink!

I'm a pink/ blue traditional gal here so the neon greens, yellows, and oranges just don't match my gear.  But I don't have a problem pairing hot pink with other pinks.  But for a guy, I'll have to pair a neon blue with a duller shade of gray to tone it down.  Don't like my kids to be walking neon billboards IYKWIM.
