I still have my stokee. Three kids, seven years. Still works. Worth the money. I should probably pass it on to someone. It was the sixth thousand, two hundred something one ever made.

There was a great moment when i was taking my son to MOMA in it and they had one on display in the design exhibit.  People got a kick out of it.

But bugaboo? For twelve hundred pounds? Please. No farking way. At least the stokee provided functions that no other stroller offered.

I'm cool with this if it causes those 3-wheel jogging strollers to fall out of fashion.  Those things are a farking nuisance.

Yes, but when subby got his first car, a dime could buy you lunch.

I just told Mr. Quzie "I'm sorry hon, If I was carrying your kid, fark a $1200 stroller - we're going 2nd hand Goodwill or Kijiji..."

"Kate, now six months' pregnant, is said to have told a group of Army wives at a recent drinks reception in Aldershot that she has bought a Bugaboo in light blue - which some have taken as a clue to her unborn baby's gender."

Please tell me again how the colour of a bloody pram can tell you the baby's  gender.  "Gender," "sex," whatever, just put a word in their that looks like it mite make some cents.

Umbrella stroller and an Ogio backpack.

Prior to that, carseat that fits into the stroller frame so you don't wake the little guy up.

So, whatever became of the limited edition Aston-Martin stroller?  If the royal family isn't getting one of those, who is?
 
2013-04-29 01:27:49 AM  
Being a grandfather, I still say that a tranquilizer pistol costs a lot less than that, even with a lot of trank darts.  Even more so if you figure that a trank rifle costs less than your teenager's first car and bizarre dating habits ;)
 
2013-04-29 01:32:33 AM  
You know, for that much money, I'd expect it to have built in GPS, be bullet and bomb proof with titanium wheel bearings and designed to protect the kid from a Tsunami.

It kind of makes me chuckle when I think about how Rolex was basically a good, working mans watch originally. Someone added bling to it and started charging 20 times the original price and it became a status symbol.

Yet, inside, it's still basically got the initial working mans assembly.

The pram didn't seem like anything special to me. Worth maybe $100 bucks.
 
2013-04-29 01:58:23 AM  
We had a Bugaboo, it wasn't that expensive as that - maybe $400? Don't remember, but it was more expensive than most. By a lot. Either way, it was amazingly sturdy, well-designed and washable. Steerable with one hand. One finger, even. Reversible handle. Folds not completely flat but close enough, in three seconds. Fat tires for rolling on a sandy beach or dirt trail. High enough for a 6' Daddy to not break his back on. Easy to snap the seat or bassinet or carseat into. Did i mention washable? Awesome. Funny how having a newborn makes you realize how many times you have to wash things, and you really appreciate things that disassemble easily to put into the washing machine.

It lasted ten years of abuse, while most other kid things needed to be thrown out, we gave the bugaboo to a nice new family down the street. Sure, you don't need one, you can get by with spending less on another stroller - but hell, for all the stupid things you blow money on with kids, this wasn't bad.

It's fashionable. It's not special. That's it, really. This is what happens when a inexpensive, but well made, item becomes desirable by people willing to escalate the price beyond all reason to obtain it.

Yup, it's ridiculous to spend so much money on something you use for ~2 years per kid.  We bought a Graco from Target for #1 son, then picked up a similar one from a garage sale for $20 for #1 daughter.  Then we Craigslisted both of them when she was three.

If we were doing it over Mrs. RocketRay would be trolling garage sales at eight months.

Word. Ours has lasted through two kids, survived cross-country trips, handled beaches and snow... and the only thing that needs replacing is the foam handle grips. There's a difference between paying $$$ for looks and paying $$$ for quality.

This is just the stroller version of the $100,000 off-road vehicle that never sees anything wilder than the parking lot of the Whole Foods in Greenwich.

That said, you do need one of the big-wheel models if you're ever taking the stroller off the pavement.

When my first son was born back in 88 we bought a stroller at K-Mart, can't remember how much it was but I know it was under $100 and it lasted through all 4 of our kids.

Here's what you do:

Every time you see someone pushing one of these vanity projects, walk up to them, and look into the stroller.  Wait a second or two, and then look up with a sad smile and make eye contact with the parent.  Reach forward, take them by the hand, and say, "What you are doing is so brave".  Then you squeeze their hand and walk away.

>:D

Without knowing how much a typical stroller costs, if you had asked me to guess what that went for based on the pictures I would have said about $199.

This is the best infant carrier ever. As a guy, I recommend it. No need to wrap and tie stuff. Just set the snaps right, buckle up, and put the kid in.

my first car was $250, but that's US dollars so yours probably cost about 8000x as much as mine.

got it at a repo auction, discovered it had previously been owned by a drug runner.   it was very fast, and had no original parts.    I miss that car.
