If you are a new dad, or about to become one and somehow there’s this notion in your head that says that being a dad is not cool as far as the visual profile goes, then don’t worry about it. Skoda’s Mega Man Pram has got you covered.
The monstrous 6.5 Ft. tall pram comes with its own hydraulic system, lumbar support, brake lights, a high beam headlight and many other perks that bespeak masculinity at a whole new level.
Your baby or whatever monstrosity you plan on tucking in there, will have oodles of fun. This baby stroller is a limited edition design which Skoda basically created for a car advertisement campaign.
According to the Czech manufacturer, a lot of new dads are admittedly comfortable with the idea of pushing a stroller with masculine or rugged looks.
The stroller was launched after the release of Octavia VRS, one of the latest car models to hit the market recently.
Also, Skoda reported that fathers in the U.K. are spending only about an hour, or little over an hour behind baby strollers on weekly basis.
Therefore, the company decided to increase that number in a fun and remarkable way.
At the same time, the Man Pram and its creators caught a lot of flak from many angry parents from all over the world.
Apparently, some couples thought that the design was too intimidating, and it is not exactly the correct portrayal of a man.
Yeah, whatever that means; if you have masculinity issues or vice versa, then go see a professional instead.
Skoda is hoping to help increase the Man Pram’s sales in the market.
They featured the stroller in the Skoda Octavia VRS TV ads, and basically wanted to project the image that Skoda’s products are extremely high performing, even when compared to daily use items and accessories.
So, somehow the car and baby stroller campaign was interlined to one another to show that whatever Skoda creates, is meaner, faster, manlier and better as compared to rival company products.
Anyhow, the high priced ultimate baby buggy was created to deliver the manliest baby transportation experience.
It does have an intimidating personality; the 20 Inch alloy rims are more than enough to shove off puny regular sized strollers easily.
However, as long as practical use is concerned, it is not going to be an easy job to maintain, or rather store the Man Pram Baby Stroller. First of all, you will need adequate space in your garage or wherever you plan on “parking” this stroller. Secondly, I don’t think that it can be folded like a regular baby stroller.
Even if it does fold, it will still be hard to carry around or let alone slide in your car behind the front seats.
But still, it does not fail to impress. Rumor has it that Man Pram was designed by engineers who were commissioned by Skoda to come up with a rugged design.
This stroller comes with wing mirrors, it’s very own suspension system, some oversized brake calipers, a dedicated headlight for night walks cos’ you never know when you need to take your baby out, and some sports car style upholstery.
I don’t think that these engineers have really held a baby in their hands. I am a father too, and babies are like human jellies; they are very fragile during the first few months.
If I were to buy the Man Pram, I’d use it for myself. Or maybe if I were in a giving mood, I’d invite my friends over and we’d ride in the stroller taking turns because I imaging that it’d be a pain in the b*** to push it around the streets.
Anyhow, it was a commendable effort from Skoda. The would be customers of this stroller are definitely going to get some looks from fellow mothers and fathers from all over the neighborhood. I also hear that based on an uproar from the parents community, Skoda has almost retracted the idea of releasing Man Pram for public use.
Whatever they do, this stroller is a new idea, and it should be given a chance. Babies or not, you can throw in your adult kids in it and just have some fun with them for old time’s sake.
