I wish there was a way to take babies as young adults, then travel them back in time so they could care for themselves as a baby.

Kind of like that high school health class egg baby project, only when you fail you blink out of existence in a paradox flash.

Why do modern strollers look like they are designed to be towed by an SUV?

No cup holder, rich corinthian leather, or a side mounted chain gun.

Wont work for an infant. Most of those bigger ones have inserts and different straps for infani. Plus the bottom compartment keeps a diaper bag off your shoulder. Finally, sun shades are pretty important.

Sometimes the folding mechanisms seem like they were designed to guillotine your fingers too.

Whatever is going to be the cheapest to produce.  Pass the savings along to the shareholders, PBUT.

an unharnessed child

I always strap the little farkers down.  They'll escape in a second if you give them a chance.

1.  They have to be about 6 months old before you can put them in those.
2.  They suck.  I've got a jogging stroller and it's light years ahead of an umbrella stroller for outside use.  You can go across fields, over curbs, etc with a jogging stroller.
3.  The ergonomics are terrible.  I'm only 5'10" and I can't find one that doesn't require me to hunch over to reach the handles and to take baby steps to avoid kicking the back of it.

Umbrella strollers are for pushing around the mall or Disney World when your kid is 2-4.  Any other application and they suck.

If you don't use the anti-submarine belt kids can slide down and get strangled? This stroller was designed by Darwin wasn't it?

Almost all strollers allow an unharnessed kid to slide out. The opening should be big enough to allow this without strangling them, OR you get rid of the front bar. I can't believe anyone would still be making this design mistake since they've known about it for so long.

Can it be used on a teen?

I can watch that video starring Bootsie the Dumper and her ball catcher over and over.

Elegant, simple and my mind numbs at the kind of dialog or narration that this deserves.

Bootsie and the ball.

Airports...don't forget those. Flying with a jogging stroller sucks. Well...flying with a kid sucks, but even more so with a jogger stroller.

If you have anything hanging off the back, like a diaper bag, as soon as the kid gets out the stroller flips over.

We were given a McClarren umbrella stroller. Super light and convenient but still sturdy. But the hinge was dangerous and the stroller had been subject to a recall (not really a recall but anyone who bought one could get some fabric covers for the hinges to keep toddlers fingers out.) We were told that because we weren't the original purchasers we couldn't get the fabric covers.
Ok, no problem, we'll just be extra careful. But we sent the kid and the stroller out with the uncle one day and even after clearly warning him about the hinges he managed to fark up and clipped the end of our son's little finger off. Luckily it mostly grew back but we weren't sure who to be more pissed off at, my BIL or McClarren.
