Would you pay $2,600 for a bike/stroller?


Every parent wants the best for their child, and money isn't an issue for some things.

But approximately $2,600, (or £1,600) for a Taga baby stroller that converts to a bicycle seems like an expense that will make most parents want to spit up.

The three-wheeled bike reminds me of a combination stroller/car seat we got when our daughter was born five years ago, allowing us to keep her strapped in it as a baby and then easily moved and latched into an accompanying stroller.

And while the Taga can carry children from birth up to age 6 as mom or dad pedal around town, then easily convert it to a stroller, the price tag seems too steep to justify, or at least for my childcare budget.

Still, it's an interesting product, and it's only available so far in 11 countries, all in Europe, so we Americans can't even throw our money away on it yet. But since its unavailability only makes it more appealing, it's really only a matter of time before the more-money-than-sense crowd of parents take up this buggy/bike and make it the newest parenting must-have.

Here's a short video from the London Telegraph of the buggy that turns into a bike:
