If you thought you had seen everything when it came to high-tech strollers (like the Origami that launched back in January), then you’ve got to check out the latest ride for kids and parents alike: The Taga.
The Taga stroller-bike functions exactly as its name suggests—it provides the entertainment and exercise one would get from riding a bike while doing double-duty as a stroller. You can convert from bicycle to stroller in twenty seconds (check out this video if you don’t believe us) and with its ability to easily navigate through stores, public transportation and elevators, this ride is definitely designed for families on the go.
The stroller-bike has three wheels, which makes it more stable and easy to balance than a regular bicycle—especially when mounting and dismounting with your kiddo on board. According to Taga’s website, the stroller-bike can accommodate your child from newborn to six years old, but parents can get use of the bike long after their wee one has outgrown the stroller.
The Taga comes in a variety of fun colours—red, light blue (our fave!), orange and green. The fabric is removable for easy cleaning, and is waterproof and non-flammable. You can also buy additional accessories like a rain cover, side bags, second child seat, car seat adapter and a shopping basket.
The downside? If you like a stroller with plenty of storage, then this probably isn’t the buggy for you. But if convenience and uniqueness is more your bag, the Taga should be given some serious consideration.
