After hunching over our tiny umbrella stroller for this summer, I’ve been looking for an easy alternative. The simple problem is that the thing is too short for me and my Amazonian bride to push comfortably…it’s like the handles need to be about a half-inch taller for us to accurately maneuver the thing, but as it is, I’m hunching forward with our shoulders and constantly kicking the thing with my feet.
To our rescue come the kind souls at TallParents who have developed a stroller with telescoping handles that can come up to the correct level for us tall folks and lock in place. The obvious news is that there is a manufacturing defect with the stroller that causes the handles to (safely but probably annoyingly) telescope back down while you’re pushing. There’s a little message on their website that says that they’ll notify you when they become available again.
I am here to publicly offer my child and my arms as test subjects when the strollers become available again. Attention TallParents Folks: I will offer a completely glowing review of your product (provided my kid doesn’t end up being rocketed into traffic and my arms don’t end up like cartoon accordions) if you send me a free sample. Hook a tall brother up.
