Watch These Parents Awkwardly Test-Drive the World’s First Adult-Sized Stroller

If you’ve ever pushed your kid around in their stroller and found yourself wondering what it’d be like for your butt to be carted around all day in your very own chariot … well, the universe seems to have heard you. LOUD and clear.

Okay, sort of.

The Chicago-based baby gear manufacturer Kolcraft has just created the first-ever adult-sized stroller — which is an exact replica of their popular infant stroller, the Contour Bliss. And in one rather hilarious YouTube video, the company lets a few very lucky parents go for a ride.

As it turns out, there are lots of perks to riding around in a super-sized baby stroller.

For one, you get a bird’s eye view of the world, which is pretty sweet.

Plus, it has an ergonomically-designed, ultra-comfy seat, and a super-fun canopy to keep the sun out of your eyes.

But there are also a surprising amount of downsides that come with riding in an adult-sized baby stroller, too …

Like having strangers silently judge you for taking up way too much room on the sidewalk.

And being publicly mocked for your chosen mode of transportation.

And just generally made to feel like a giant weirdo everywhere you go.

But in case you’re wondering how much one of these bad boys will even run you, I’m sorry to report they’re not actually for sale.

“We created the test ride so adults could experience first-hand how each Contours Stroller is carefully designed with a baby’s joy and comfort in mind and make sure it’s the perfect choice for their family,” explained the company’s president Tom Koltun in a recent press release, according to The Huffington Post.

Hmm … so unfortunately, that means you won’t be parking one of these in your garage any time soon. But that’s probably for the better, considering this super-sized whip stands at an impressive 7 ft., 6 in. high, and is a roomy 6 ft. deep, 4 ft. wide.

However, you can give one a test ride, if you happen to be in the Chicago area next month. According to the company, the next public “test drive” will be held on June 7, at Chicago’s Mary Bartelme Park.

Until then, you’ll just have to live vicariously through your toddler, as with most things.
