Buggy Balance

Congrats! Hoboken Buggy Balance Kickstarter Fully Funded!

Congratulations to Anna and her Buggy Balance Kickstarter project, which became fully funded yesterday! You still have time to buy in and support this project until tomorrow night.

We even supported it and don’t have a stroller!

Parents – Do you like the Buggy Balance idea?

8/22/2014:

Hoboken resident Anna was sick of having her baby stroller tip over when her toddler decided to stretch their limbs after she went shopping. So she devised a product called Buggy Balance, which essentially keeps the stroller “weighted down” to prevent those annoying mishaps where your double-latte from Starbucks along with your Facebook-loaded iPhone come crashing to the ground.

While adding weights to the front of your stroller is no more than a 10 minute study of the situation and a trip to Home Depot – Anna has created a Kickstarter Project called Buggy Balance.

She’s looking to raise $5,000 to start this project / company where she can provide frustrated parents with the necessary “weights” to help prevent the “stroller overload” that affects countless parents every day in Hoboken and beyond.

Imagine getting you Soy-double-skinny-whatever and not having to worry about standing on line again? That thought alone is worth it, isn’t it?

Donate to her project here – and see video below.

A better idea is to take the kid out the stroller if its a toddler and let them do the stretching and walking that toddlers do best. The stretching and kicking and knees to the chest is a good indicator that the stroller is for the parent and not the child.

Yes, the stroller is for the parent! Sometimes young children get tired and the parent needs a stroller (or else they have to carry the child). Carrying children somewhat limits any other activity….. like walking any kind of distance.

This is an awesome idea…can’t remember how many times my stroller has fallen over and the coffee ruined (at $4 per cup, this weight would pay for itself). On Kickstarter, they’re only asking for $25 to get a pair of weights as the reward, so I presume the retail value will be in that range. Can’t wait to get mine!!!
