The more I looked at this, the more I fretted for any child placed in this device! At first I thought it was a pushchair/stroller, and the doll was kind of creepy. But then I noticed its clenched fists. And the pedals are so far forward from the seat, it would have to be for a very large child, 3-4 years old, leaning far forward… and what of those booster rockets? and the handle for mum at the top??? Oh, no no no… there must be a law somewhere…

On the other hand, I was highly encouraged that it was rusting rather badly on the pedals and whole metal frame… even the dumbest parents are too smart for this… But it’s still for sale… don’ t tell me it’s just what you were looking for.

  1. I suspect the reason for the clenched fist is the pain in-between the legs. This would give any child and a fear of wheels forever.Great find.

    • Yes, there is that as well… as I commented to my sister, the designer had seen a few babies here and there and knew they had some kind of special transportation devices. However, he (and no woman could have contrived this) had never met an actual baby or researched their proportions and capabilities at various sizes and stages… And – what IS it with the handle at the top? What is mum supposed to be doing???
