$1500 stroller sells out before arriving in stores
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 02:14 PM by Liberal_in_LA


Bugaboo's $1500 stroller sells out before arriving in stores

Bugaboo's success with its new, pimped-out wheels could be an indicator that the economy isn't headed for another major downturn, or maybe it's an example of how the rich are getting richer and the poor, poorer. The difference in expense between the top-of-the-line strollers and the cheap ones is getting bigger. You can buy the $1500 Donkey or Vision's Double Baby Stroller for $170 at Walmart--that's a huge difference in price.

And if you thought $1500 was expensive, then you ought to check out the $3500 Roddler made by stroller company Kid Kustoms.

47. When Umbroller Strollers came out I bought one..paid about $10
used it for all three kids.. Creepy yellow & orange plaid, but it worked well


I bought a twin stroller for $15 at a garage sale & used it for the two younger ones born 12 months apart..

baby bed....free
high chair gift from Grandma (she paid about 25$ at a garage sale)

3. Both of those kids are old enough to walk.
When I have that thought, I tell myself that perhaps the children in question have an unseen malady that makes long stretches of walking difficult, or the parent has an unseen malady that makes it difficult to chase after them. I try not to judge.

But I do get tired of telling myself that over and over and over. And over.

I appreciate that 'kids get tired' but unload the oversized pink frilly thing and get one of those cheap $20 'umbrella' strollers that you can use in a pinch. Better yet if the kid is that kranky and tired - take them home.

parents have had to come up with better ways of coping.

32. that's true, but having been in the situation walking my daughter and niece to drop my niece off at
preschool, and they were too old for a stroller, was fun when at least one would run off and i would be trying to chase them. uggh. I don't know how old the kids in that picture are though. My 18 month old wants to walk and I will try to let her as long as she holds my hand. But she is not interested in holding my hand and I end up having to carry her. We are working on it. The use of a stroller I guess depends on a few things.... My kids tended to use a stroller til at least 2 and then the stroller was there for when they were tired and such even at 3 to 3 1/2. and even after that I had it just to lug stuff. so..... And I would hope that at $1500 that stroller has self propel help or something super special to help the parent out because otherwise it's a rip off!

12. we've had long, heated discussions on that...
and I still maintain that a parent that is facing a challenge of running errands and keeping up with active, curious toddlers in crowded public spaces should face no wrath for taking the precaution of a child harness and leash if they find it necessary. Likewise, I'll cut the parent some slack for using the stroller as a convenience, if that were the case.

17. I don't get mad at people who leash their kids, but I maintain that it doesn't teach their kids
anything. Kids need to learn to stay close by if a parent is running errands. Parents need to learn to get their kinds involved in the errands as well.

<-- Has all the answers. ;)

I would hope they would likewise be seeking opportunities to have the kids out walking with them and teaching those lessons--in less hazardous, less crowded settings. Kids gotta learn sometime...

30. I don't think everythin has to be a learning experience.
I never used a leash, but I wouldn't fault a parent if they thought it was the best way to keep a hold on their child. Some kids are so active and fast -- if you don't have your eye on them the whole time, they disappear in an instant. I know. I had such a child. It's very scary.

14. I prefer the electronic dog collars at home
myself. That way I don't need an unsightly fence and I can allow my children to play without supervision.

The older one managed to break through the barrier last weekend and I found her sniffing around a neighbors house I may have to up the intensity a bit.

;-) Of course I kid

Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 02:25 PM by hlthe2b
that the parent doesn't want to be bothered with keeping up with the child walking and is using their high priced stroller for their own convenience. But, yes, your alternate explanation could be at play, so I won't judge, particularly given the challenges of keeping up with active toddlers in crowded public spaces.

11. I agree. I once saw a youngish woman pushing a boy who must've been 8 years old in a stroller.
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 02:25 PM by ClarkUSA
I said something to my companion. The woman overheard and came over in a huff and said she heard me. The boy was not disabled or developmentally delayed. He looked like a spoiled brat and his mom was a basket case.

On the other hand, my brother and sister-in-law had their sons walking all around New York City when they were 3 and 5 with no problems. They both insisted it was good for their sons to get the exercise and they were right. My nephews both bike miles to school now as teenagers and are very fit and lean.

19. It's very hard to shop without having children corraled in
some way so they don't wander off while the parent is distracted looking at an item. This is the way child snatchers grab children..wait for one to get separated from the parent.
I had 4 children, the oldest being 4 1/2. I didn't go shopping without my mother and a couple of strollers and while in the store, I put them in 2 shopping carts. There was no way I could have possibly kept track of them and still been able to shop.
Baby sitters are expensive when the main stores are over 30 miles away - one way. Couldn't have afforded to shop and pay a baby sitter at the same time.

23. I ended up trading off babysitting with a neighbor.
We both lived way out in the mountains so shopping was easily a half-day event. Sometimes we would all go out in my van and the neighbor would sit with all the kids in the van while I ran errands, then I would do the same for her. She was a sweet girl with 3 the same ages as ours so I was lucky (no family around, unfortunately).

53. It depends on the kids
Some kids innately sense that they should stick by their parents while their parents are distracted. Other kids don't have that same sense. I had 3 of the former and one of the latter (my first, thank god so I only had to worry about 1). My first would take off every chance she got. The *nanosecond* my brain would wander while I was shopping (gee, I wonder if the pink one is the same price) she was gone. Same when we went for walks. I was late in my second pregnancy and I would walk every day. My (now ex) husband sometimes watched my oldest while I walked but once he wasn't home and I took my daughter with me since I figured she could use the exercise as well. I was holding her hand and she wriggled free and took off. She refused to come back, she thought it was a game, starting running across roads (thankfully in a very small town residential area with practically no traffic) and I was waddling as fast as I could go, screaming her name. I finally caught up to her when she was distracted by a caterpillar on the sidewalk. I never brought her again without a stroller. She was nearly 3 at the time. She once did the same in a parking lot (wriggled free the second I loosed my grip a little) and nearly got hit by a car. I wish I would have had a leash but I was so worried about 'what would people think'.

When I had my second, I was completely floored at how she would just follow me and stick by me, all the time. I didn't even have to hold her hand. With my first, I used to hold her wrist, because she was so good at wriggling free. My second, and third and fourth were all like little ducklings, just following me where I went. They very rarely took advantage of my lack of attention. I'm not sure why my first wasn't like that. I really think most kids are NOT like my first just by reason of evolution - offspring that took off in a forest, for instance, would be lost very quickly. So unless you've had a kids like that, it's hard to understand the need for 'leashes' and strollers. Although, like anything, some parents abuse it and are too lazy to teach their kids how to behave in public and corral them in a stroller instead. But just because you see an older child in a stroller doesn't mean the parents are using it to keep the child in check - my youngest, now 4 years old, loves her stroller when we are shopping because she gets bored, and tired (since she is small for her age). This way, she can look at her books, or even play kids games on my iPod while I shop. She often naps in it. She hates going shopping without her stroller, although she is capable of shopping without it, when I bring it, it is a more pleasant experience for both of us.

20. Those damned strollers have just gotten to ridiculous sizes
It's hard going to art shows around here now because of all the yuppie larvae being shoved around in strollers the size of Volkswagens.

Back in the 70s, it was easy to coexist with the little umbrella strollers. Parents who exercised reasonable care didn't pinch the kid's fingers and most kids survived them just fine.

Now the damned things have to be built to survive being rammed by a semi, with padded bumpers protruding all over it. There seems to be a contest about how "my kid is buried in a bigger, aisle clogging contraption than your kid is."

This tandem job is just another stupid aisle clogger. Letting those kids take turns in an umbrella stroller would work as well and without making people want to pitch it out of a window.

28. I agree with you... I remember "twin" strollers of years past...
that were half the size of some of these monstrous single strollers with the big all terrain tires. I am appalled at how some shove these things through tiny little crowded stores--oblivious to the damage-- or literally over other people in the malls. I have been "hit" by one at least twice. No apology in the first instance and a mumbled "sorry" in the second. :eyes:

51. yes, restaurants too
I used to work in a very popular place that barely had room for server stations/computer stations for ordering, and customers crammed into every square inch of the place. Yet every weekend, during brunch (peak hours) people would come in expecting us to accommodate these monsters. People get very irritated when they have to leave their chariots outside.... you'd think after a couple of times they would realize that the rest of the world isn't set up for gear like this. Is it so hard to get the kiddoes from the car to the restaurant without the wheels? If so, perhaps a rethink of strategy is in order.

24. I had 2 kids 14 months apart, and I sometimes pushed them in a stroller even after they could walk
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 02:35 PM by FourScore
It's faster. It's easier. It's just more efficient. Mom's work hard enough. Otherwise, you are dealing with kids melting down, whining, running off, getting tired, literally dragging their feet, darting around, and don't even get me started on parking lots -- all the while trying to shop or run errands or get somewhere. It's even worse if you have a 4 or 5 year old with you, walking alongside you, on top of the other 2 in the stroller. Trust me.

I'd still be pushing them in strollers if they made the strollers big enough! - Kidding! :P

44. Sometimes, when you are out for a longer time than expected,
Edited on Thu Apr-07-11 03:07 PM by tblue37
especially when it is nap time, kids get tired, and it is very, very hard to carry large tired kids, especially when there are two of them, and especially when you are carrying other things.

If the kids start whining because they are tired, nearby grinches will complain to the parent, but if the parent takes steps such as this, to put the kids in a stroller so that they can all get where they are going, without anyone being too tired, other grinches--or, more likely the same ones--will complain that the kids are too big to be in a stroller.

Anyone who has raised kids knows that sometimes a child of 3, 4, 5, or even 6 might get too darned tired to keep walking, and when that happens, a stroller is a lifesaver.

Also, some people must be with kids, not always their own, who can't be trusted not to take off.

When I had a home daycare, I often put the baby in a carry-all on my back and let SOME of the 3-4 year olds walk, but placed a certain 4-year-old in the stroller, because the second we got to the park, that 4-year-old would race ahead, climb the play-structure, and take a flying leap from the platform (as her parents had taught her to do) before I was there to catch her! I really hurt myself once racing with the baby on my back to catch the flying 4-year-old, and was forced to leave the other preschooelrs some distance out of my control while trying to save that little girl from breaking her neck.

After the first time, I explained to her that she couldn't jump from the platform before I was there to catch her, but the next time she was so excited that she raced ahead anyway and tried the same thing. After that, I put her in the stroller, because that way she was controlled until we were all near the play structure. (Oh, btw, I didn't have a car at the time--we had to walk the 4 blocks to that park.)

Parents, too, might not want to have their kids running loose in public places when they know they will be busy or distracted, because it takes just a nanosecond for a child to slip away because something has attracted them, or for a stranger to deliberately lure a child away.

A kid in a stroller is not going anywhere without the parent's knowledge.

Short version: There is nothing wrong with using a stroller for older kids sometimes. Sure, you wouldn't want to spoil them and make them lazy, but sometimes the stroller really is the wisest way to handle them.

22. We had four kids within 5 and a half years...
we had a front pack, a backpack, a single umbrella stroller (for flying this is essential) and a very basic double umbrella stroller. Going out w/them was like going on a small camping trip at times. I can't imagine spending that much money on a stroller w/that kind of design (we hated the side-be-side strollers, they take up too much aisle room). But you know how people are with money, when they have they tend to flaunt it.
