Metrolla Strolla – creature or machine?

It looks like a cross between a stick insect, a golf buggy and a
bicycle baby seat, and lifts baby to dizzying heights. The Metrolla
Strolla won’t be clacking along the pavements near you any time soon
though, as it’s a concept designed with strictly urban families in
mind.

The seat lifts off and can actually be fitted to a bicycle in order to reduce the stacks of baby gear we tend to accumulate –
multifunctionality is the buzz word in child products, although the question that springs immediately to mind is "Where on earth
is the storage?"

After finally getting a basket for my Quinny Zapp, because it was
either that or sell it, I know all too well the
hassles of having no storage on a pram. Still, it’s easily fixed when
brought out as an aftermarket product or added to the
standard specs. It looks like there’d be plenty of room for a good
sized basket under there, although it’d interrupt that stunning form.

Designer
Dan Levin
is fresh out of university and designing all kinds of weird and wonderful things. Imagination such as this should be encouraged
as parents hunt for increasingly unique products. I urge someone high up in strollerland to give this young man a job now,
designing strollers for us of course!
