Stroller Weights (and an assortment of other accessories)
Stroller or "Buggy" weights might seem like old hat to our European readers, but where are they in the US? I perused many a US website for these innovative, simple devises, and... nothing. The New York Times publicized them in 1999. Our friend, Daddytypes, reviewed them in 2005, but the place he said sold them no longer does. I can accessorize with a strollometer (just what it sounds like) and even stroller skies (Hope they're not for downhill!!!!), but where are my weights?
I mean, this seems like a no-brainer to me, because every time I take my son out of our umbrella stroller, it tips over. (Ok, I'm not dense, I have learned to take the diaper bag off it first, but it's a pain! I want to keep it stored there.) According to the New York Times tests, the weights counter balanced "a fully loaded diaper bag, three Barney videos, a wool sweater and two large bottles of San Pellegrino." Sounds great! UK parents are loving them, but, again, where are they in the US? Hey, US retailers, I repeat, where are they?!
