At first glance I thought this Roller Buggy concept, which combines all the safety aspects of a baby seat and stroller with the reckless abandon of a scooter, was just a terrible idea. Particularly when used in a busy urban environment like seen in some of the product shots. But according to designer Valentin Vodev, a lot of care and safety concerns were taken into consideration when it was designed. In addition to an extra safety belt on the child seat, the Roller Buggy also features a set of hydraulic disc brakes on the front two wheels allowing the speed to be easily reduced at any time. Though taking it down a hill or riding it off a sweet plywood ramp in your driveway is probably still a terrible idea with a baby on board.
The Roller Buggy can also be transformed into a standard push stroller for use in places where scooting is frowned upon, and while I’m sure there will be plenty of uproar over child safety if this somehow ever becomes available for sale, with a little common sense it seems like a faster and generally more entertaining alternative way to get around with your little one.
