I actually have a few expecting mothers to whom I could recommend this! I know, it’s not your typical style feature, but you know I tend to do this! Especially if it intersects motherhood…
Are you familiar with Quinny? They make these awesomely compact urban strollers I really loved looking at. Yes, you’re reading that right. Although I appreciate the qualities of a Quinny stroller, my heart will always be with MacLaren. The connaisseurs know why! (wink)
Anywhoo, this is a Quinny hybrid. And, like all hybrids, this is a hipster item. Something you must own just because. And I’m not saying it’s not fun, it sure looks like a lot of fun from the pictures, but, really? A Longboard Stroller? We used to stroll with our roller-skates on. Until one day I didn’t have time to brake. So the first thing I’ll ask about this Longboard Stroller designed by Quinny and Studio Peter van Riet: where are the brakes? (there’s a short video after the jump with the ‘test stroll’)
It’s so compact and funky, I would love to test it, should my kids still be in their stroller age! What I loved the most about the concept was the fact that you could actually separate the board and the stroller and the toddler could have fun with the board on his/her own!
