Longboardstroller lets you skateboard with your kid, literally

When you have kids, everything changes. Going for a short walk in the sunshine becomes an epic adventure, and doing anything as exciting as skateboarding is pretty much off the agenda.

OmniO Rider stroller can be worn like a backpack

OmniO Rider is a stroller which can be folded down and carried as a backpack, ready to be deployed when your tired toddler suddenly decides they can't walk any more (typically at the point you are farthest from home).

There’s no word yet on whether or not in can perform diaper changes.Read More


Roller Buggy – the baby stroller/scooter hybrid for kids on the fast track

Being a single, childless (as far as I know), male my experience with baby strollers is largely limited to trying to avoid parents using them as battering rams at my local shopping center. That task could get a whole lot tougher if the Roller Buggy gains widespread popularity. A simple pull of the lower body extends a platform and transforms the Roller Buggy from a run-of-the-mill baby stroller into a scooter that lets parents transport baby around town at breakneck (hopefully not literally) speed.Read More


The self-folding Origami stroller: a cool name for a compact kid carrier
