the ‘longboard stroller’ by quinny presents a different approach to urban mobility; re-thinking how parents can commute within a city. the four-wheeled mode of transportation provides an alternative to traveling at longer distances with children in environmentally-friendly manner. collaborating with studio peter van riet to design a refined prototype, the longboard hybrid comes equipped with a full scale stroller and ergonomic handles for added stability and control. although the project is still a concept and in its initial research phases, the company plans to evolve the design over the next months.

  • I’m sorry, but i don’t understand the fuss. the weight of the rider will counteract the weight of the child, so as long as the kid isn’t alone, the fear of flipping it over shouldn’t be an issue. Also, watch the video again, the designers aren’t using this on the hills of San Fran. they are on a flat smooth surface, going slow down a smooth level board walk. At some point the parents should use common sense, but is this a taboo contraption that signifies a bad parent? how so?

  • Give it a brake and make it more scoot and less skate

  • I like the idea! To minimize the risks it should have a break and a light roll bar – also helpful for a rain-/sun cover.
    And then add an electric motor.
    Does it stand alone?
    Should be foldable, too, for subway/bus use.
    But that’s definetely more fun than a standard stroller. Ha – if you could move the seat backwards it could also be used as a stroller if you want to walk with friends (now you’d stumble ove the board).
    And you can transport older siblings, too, them standing on the board at the rear (this sort of boards already exists)
    It has lots of potential!!!

  • Brilliant concept!
    This would be one of the first purchases I’d make if I had a child. Might purchase a kiddy helmet to go along with it though. And brakes… yeh… may need them!
    Good work guys!

  • awesome! Congratulations for the good idea!
    I wish you success!
    I would like something like this when I have kids!

  • Aman, why is it ‘terrible’? Looks like a lot of fun and I don’t see why it’s any more dangerous than a conventional stroller. Wish I had one when I was pushing my son around instead of that awful umbrella stroller.
