vienna based designer valentin vodev has turned his sights from duck fins to making parenting a bit more fun. vodev’s latest project is a baby carriage that allows the pusher to kick off and ride along with their child, just like a push scooter. the stroller can be adjusted into a series of positions, closing off the scooting ability or pushing the seat all the way to the front or maximum scooting. before you imagine some kind of horrible accident, vodev made the safety of the child a top priority. for one, the child is strapped in with a secure seat belt and second, a hydraulic brake system with two front disk brakes ensure quick stops. however he also warns not to exceed 15km/h.

  • I agree perhaps it is as safe as a jogger. I would like to have one for my 3-year-old. We have just moved 15-20 min walk away from the shopping centre (and from the nearest grocery shop as well). It is stupid to take a car for this short distance; one can easily stand 30 min in a traffic jam on the way as it is a popular shopping area. The pedestrian way from our home has a few smooth long parts where one could accelerate (it would safe minimum 10 min!) and a few rough parts! With the Roller Buggy I could just not use the scooter option at the rough parts and walk there with a normal speed. Honestly, I would be more afraid to go with a child on a bicycle. My concern only about how robust is the construction and how easy it is to pull the extension in and out. Great idea for busy mums! I wish some buggies would have this option in the future.
