It’s a common cry heard in car parks across the world. New parents shriek in pain and frustration at their state of the art, bullet-proof, environmentally friendly, in-vogue pram.
“Why can’t it just fold up easily like the guy showed me at the Pregnancy Expo?”
“Where the hell is that button he pressed to get the canopy-thingy off?!”
“Which of the 3000 fancy compartments did I put the babies drink bottle in? I know it’s here somewhere…..
“Why did I opt for the fashionable cream colour? Didn’t I know it would get dried biscuit all over it?”
“This bloody thing! If it had 4 doors it would be considered a vehicle and I’d need a licence to drive it.”
It seems we have come a long way in Pram technology – so much so, it’s often too hard to use them. But have you seen the one that can fold down (and back up!) automatically with a press of a button? (Check it out here if you don’t believe me). I need to get me one of these. I wonder if it can lift itself out of the car too? I wonder if it can also produce me a coffee so I don’t have to maneuver my way into a café – which I basically always avoid because has anyone else noticed that café’s never seem to be built around the caffeine needs of mums with prams?
Looking back at the beautiful prams of old – They are so gorgeous but imagine trying to get one of these into the boot of your car:

Do you have a love-hate relationship with your pram?
