What we like about the Mountain Buggy unirider is that parents control this ride-on toy for kids, while little ones get the feeling of independence. It’s the perfect in-between choice for young kids who are bored with the stroller, but aren’t quite ready for training wheels. Which is exactly why Mountain Buggy, in collaboration with Simon Lagham, created it.
Simon’s three-year-old son wanted more freedom, so he made a more fun (but parent-operated) alternative.
The sleek design is easy to assemble, and the air-filled, rubber tire is durable to handle terrain ranging from the sidewalk to dirt paths or even grass. The seat positions kids directly over the tire, and there’s a hand grip and two foot positions for stability.
Now a walk around the neighborhood feels like a bike-riding adventure, but with parents secretly in charge—and that will make everyone happy.
