A baby products company in the United States creates strollers for… parents?

In an article written by James Gould-Bourn of Bored Panda, it was disclosed that Kolcraft, a US baby products company, is now creating giant strollers so that adults can test the product by taking a ride in it.

The company has designed an oversized version of its Contours Bliss stroller to give parents a better idea of what their children will experience. It is not for sale but parents can take it for a test drive.

“We created the test ride so adults could experience first-hand how each Contours Stroller is carefully designed with a baby’s joy and comfort in mind,” said Kolcraft President Tom Koltun.

It was disclosed that the next test drive is scheduled on June 7 at Chicago’s Mary Bartelme Park.

Stroller safety

Meanwhile, in relation to strollers, Mayo Clinic shared some tips in choosing the right strollers for babies:

  • Your location. If you live in or near a city, you’ll likely need a sturdy stroller to maneuver along sidewalks. You might also need to be able to collapse your stroller in a pinch to get on a bus or subway. Suburban parents might want a stroller that’s easy to fold and fits into the trunk of a vehicle.
  • Your family. If you have an older child, you might want a double stroller or a stroller with an attachment for an older child. If you’ll be using an attachment, be sure to read the manufacturer’s weight guidelines.
  • Your lifestyle. An umbrella stroller might be useful for running errands or traveling. Plan to take your baby along on your runs? You might look for a jogging stroller, too.
  • Accessories. Do you want your baby’s stroller to have a storage basket, rain cover, blanket, sun shade or cup holder? Some strollers aren’t compatible with certain accessories.
