First, the name doesn't make sense. It sounds more like it is telling the baby to buy, or you are actually purchasing babies.

Second, the "Buy Buy" part - I hate that it is so brazen in the commercialization of being a new parent. Yes, parents are susceptible to buy stuff for their newborns, but don't be so up front about it.

Third, the name was obviously chosen because it is a homonym of "bye bye baby", which is a terrible sentiment for parents.

There's nothing redeeming about that name. I can't imagine how someone thought it was a good idea.
My favourite poorly named business is the Australian Mexican restaurant chain “Montezumas”. Congratulations you picked a name that immediately has me thinking of extreme diarrhoea after eating Mexican food.

I dont know, people are largely stuck at home so one would think this would be Cable TV's big time to shine.

Play something that doesnt suck.

And seriously, watching hockey from the 80s? Good Jesus is that brutal. People are considering this the good ol' days of hockey?
