Expensive but worth the ride
February 4, 2013
After comparing several brand and models of strollers, of which I intend to buy one for my daughters new baby, I found than none are "cheap" and this one isn't any exception. However, if the adage that; "you get what you pay for" means anything, then this brand and model will be well worth it. Time will tell, but it appears to be very well constructed, easy to push, and should last the two years it will be needed. Considering that it will be used for 30 minutes a day for 200 days a year, then at the end of two years it will have cost a mere $1.25 per hour. 30 minutes per day X 200 days/year, times 2 years = 12,000 minutes, divided by 60 minutes per hour = 200 hours. $249 divided by 200 hours = $1.25 per hour. Furthermore, at 3 miles per hour (about average stroller speed for this particular mom) at 200 hours = 600 miles which comes to about $0.42 per mile. Not so bad when you consider that you never have to have the oil changed or have the tires rotated!
Pros:Don't have to buy insurance, pay for oil changes or have tires rotated.
Cons:My daughter liking it so much that she decides to have another kid and double the savings!
