The Taga: Part Stroller, Part Tricycle, Completely Awesome

Combining baby-moving and exercise isn't a fresh idea, but the Dutch has the infant-wearing power walkers and jogging-stroller pushers of the world beat with the Taga, a feat of engineering genius that converts from child-toting tricycle to stroller in 20 seconds flat.

The Taga, which weighs in at 44 to 64 pounds, depending on the configuration, features an aluminum-alloy frame, an internal Shimano gear system, as well as front, rear, and parking brakes. Besides trike and stroller modes, the Taga will soon sport options for a double child seat, a car seat, shopping basket, and a wooden double-seat trailer.Although the Taga is currently available only in Europe to the pricey tune of £1,695, it probably won't be long before the award-winning invention takes off on this side of the pond. After all, two-wheeling American parents have places to go, things to do, too.
