Hi everyone, I once saw a lady who had a bunch of laminated gedolim pictures for her baby's stroller and I wanted to know where I could purchase them? I even saw these pics in a baby's crib once as well.
let me know!

I have only seen it done by Lubuvichers. I know they sell in Crown Heights at Judaica World. Not sure if this is what you are looking for.

In Israel I’ve seen a cardboard book that opens into a strip with pictures of 6 gedolim on each side. They sell sefardi, litvish and chassidish ones.

It's a chassidish thing to do

But why? I'm sorry, I'm just not getting it. What is the reason that the baby should look at faces of tzaddikim?

I've seen this recently in an oot judaica store but it's Israeli. Also has Rambam etc.
There is also as mentioned a chabad version.

Bc what babies see affects them. Both scientifically (the whole premise of Montessori is that the child has an absorbent mind that takes in everything) and Jewish - Yaakov affected the pregnant sheep by painting his sticks. Chassidim take this very seriously and are careful in pregnancy and early years to create a holy environment. Chabad doesn't go to zoo when pregnant, put non kosher animals on baby's clothing, always has a shir hamaalos on crib or stroller, etc.

Thank you. To my very mitnaged mind this is such a foreign concept. I want to show my young children the zoo to see the wonders of Hashem's creations.

Zoo is specifically in pregnancy when you want to surround yourself with kedusha and give the fetus a spiritual head start.

Kids can go to the zoo no problem. Most ppl only stuck with kosher animals til child is old enough to differentiate between kosher and non kosher, and then they play /read with all animals.

If you can't buy one - make one. Print some pictures of the gedolim you want from the internet, stick each one on a piece of cardboard, laminate it, whatever, and stick it to your stroller.
If I couldn't get hold of one, and I really wanted it, I'd make one!
Nothing like improvising and creativity.
If you have older kids, you could get them to help you and decorate it!
