Never Run Out Of Battery While Using This Stroller


You have to take your child somewhere, so you place him in his expensive stroller and start walking, and that’s when the anxiety creeps in. What if, heaven forbid, you were to run out of battery on your smartphone while doing this? What if it becomes impossible for you to post photos of yourself walking your child? Are you still a good parent? If you don’t post it, did it even happen? The struggle is real, folks. But with the 4moms® Moxi™ Stroller, you’ll be able to charge your phone as you’re walking because generators in the back wheels provide electricity to an integrated USB port! There’s a ton of other features too:

– Headlights and taillights
– Cellphone charger
– Tracker of temperature, time, distance traveled, speed and battery level via a LCD screen (you’ll be amazed how all those walks add up!)
– Dashboard bag – for those smaller items like keys, cell phone, wallets, etc.
– Large, removable storage bag – plenty of room for all your kid supplies
– Canopy with pop out shade – no one wants sun in their eyes
– Height adjustable handle bar – parents of all heights can enjoy a leisurely walk
– Front wheel swivel locks for rough terrain
– Flip-flop friendly brake

It’s a feature-laden stroller that will be available in October of this year for the princely sum of $699.

Wonder How Your Baby Feels In That Stroller? You Can Find Out With This Adult-Sized Version


Because you can never be too sure that your baby is comfortable enough, the US baby products company Kolocraft has created an adult-sized version of their Contours Bliss stroller for you to try out. That’s right, it’s an exact replica of the baby stroller, only it’ll fit a fully grown adult and give him or her the riding experience of a lifetime. You can find out what it feels like to be pushed around by someone, and get a sense of just how comfy your little one is in the company’s stroller. It’s not for sale, obviously, but you can book a ride when the company has their next test-drive at Chicago’s Mary Bartelme Park, on June 7th. Sure, there might be a lineup for your turn, but you’re all adults and no one is going to throw a tantrum, right?

This Is The World’s Most Compact Folding Stroller


If you don’t have kids, strollers and their size is probably something you don’t think about too much. But having to deal with a stroller is not the easiest of tasks (I assume, since, of course, I am childless heathen). They then to be bulky, heavy and hard to get into tight spaces. But the gb Pockit Compact Stroller actually holds the Guiness Book of World Record’s title for most compact stroller.

“When folded, it is the smallest and most compact stroller currently available on the market, 11.8″ x 7″ x 13.8″ to be precise. The cleverly designed, compact fold uses the 2 x 2 D technique. This means that in only two steps, this unique stroller folds up into a compact, feather-light, handbag shaped package (9.5 lbs).”

It’s small enough to fit in a backpack or under an airline seat. It holds babies sized 10lbs to 55lbs, wide enough a range to last at least two weeks (those little things grow so fast!). It’ll cost ya $250, a hefty premium for portability and compactness.

Self-Driving Isn’t Just For Cars: The Smartbe Stroller Brings High Tech Innovations To An Age-Old Product


We have sensors. We have batteries and brushless electric motors. We have Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity. We have the tiniest of microprocessors… Wouldn’t it make sense to cram a bunch of these into a baby stroller, and give it the kinds of features we’ve come to expect in all our products in 2016? The Smartbe Stroller is as high-tech of a stroller as we’ve ever seen. It comes with three driving modes, from full manual, to power-assist (where you’re still pushing, but with minimal effort), to completely self-driving. In this last mode, the stroller always stays ahead of the parent, within arm’s reach, whether you’re walking or even jogging. Additional features are almost too numerous to name: built-in rocker, wireless Bluetooth speakers to play your music to your baby, electric bottle warmer, “climate/temperature-controlled bassinet keeps your baby comfortable no matter the weather, and air filters can protect against pollution and allergens.”

If this project ever manages to see light of day (and that’s a big “if”, considering the ambitiousness of the project, and the fact that it’s far from fully-funded on IndieGogo, and that all they have at the moment is a bunch of CG renders…), the Smartbe Intelligent Stroller promises to be Tesla of strollers. Completely connected, fully-automated, and as high-tech as any early enthusiast would want their infant carrier to be. Prices start at $900 for the basic non self-propelled model, and go all the way up to $3,199, with shipping in April 2017 (further re-inforcing the impression that we’re looking at vapourware).

Self-Folding Origami Stroller No Doubt Carried Baby Optimus Prime

By David Ponce

You have to watch the video above to understand the elegance and beauty of the Origami stroller. At the touch of a button it goes from full size to ready-to-toss-in-trunk small, and it does the same in reverse also at the touch of a button. But it’s more than the folding action that’s impressive; this is one feature packed stroller!

It’s also the world’s first cell phone-charging, mileage-counting, LCD-sporting stroller, with generators in the rear wheels that charge the stroller as you walk. Plus, the Origami has daytime running lights, pathway lights for low-light conditions, and sensors that detect when a child’s in the seat (so it’ll never fold by accident). From power folding to cell phone charging, it’s everything a stroller should be.

Of course the Rolls-Royce of strollers comes at a chunky price: $849. But we know there are those out there who are willing to sell kidneys to get the best of the best. If that’s you, know that the Origami will be available starting January 6th, 2012. You can pre-order now.
