Baby Photos Bring Wallets Home

Baby Photos Bring Wallets Home

Your baby's picture may save you a bundle. At least that's what some researchers in Edinburgh are saying after they scattered wallets with photos of either a baby, a dog, a happy family, or an elderly couple in several high-traffic areas around town. Eighty-eight percent of the wallets containing baby photos were returned. According to the researchers:

The result reflects a compassionate instinct toward vulnerable infants that people have evolved to ensure the survival of future generations. "The baby kicked off a caring feeling in people, which is not surprising from an evolutionary perspective."

Before heading out the door, it might be wise to put a picture of your tot in your wallet because who really wants to go shopping for a new one anyway?
