Wanted: iBaby gossip

No doubt you've already heard about the Kolcraft iBaby: a stroller with a built-in iPod docking station and speakers for the little one. (Thanks, Blogging Baby, for the heads up.) At least one Parent Hacks reader must own one. Care to comment?

I don't have that one, but I do have the Jeep Stroller that's been for sale at Babies 'r' Us for about two years. Speakers, case, 1/8-inch mini jack. That's all you need, isn't it? I guess if you tack an "i" onto the name of your product, it suddenly gets filled with all sorts of iPoddy magic pixel dust that makes the media trip over their own shoelaces in an effort to get a scoop.

Of course, the Jeep Stroller is a Kolcraft, too. And not a cheap one. I've been trying to work out a reasonable and economical way of hacking our Spongebob Umbrella stroller to support speakers and a dock, so I am willing to overlook the "i" and the branding on this one. I'd love to see a variation of this over on MAKE (http://www.makezine.com/blog) - because I don't think Zed is planning to give up the Spongebob any time soon, even if the new stroller has surround sound.

I'm pissed they don't have one for twins! I would kill for one!

I LOVE my Jeep Stroller. It's a must have for style-concious dads on the go. ;)

Oh, yeah. Plus it has a steering wheel, ignition and horn noises, and a rear view mirror!

It seems kind of creepy...next we will have the rolling cube instead of a stroller, a 3x3 multimedia immersion tank so baby/child can do his or her virtual reality/DVD/video/music deal all without getting that pesky sun in his or her eyes. Best part is when you get home you roll it into the corner and go do pilates and take a nap. A special alarm sounds ever 3 hours so you can add food and change the diaper through a special access hatch. At night push the blue button and it rocks and rolls your babe to sleep. The only downside is taking baby out once a month to clean.

I have one of the IBaby strollers.. and I must say ... I LOVE it!! Easy to maneuver, folds up nicely and my baby loves that I can take music EVERYWHERE with her... we go for a lot of walks and when she decides she is getting bored, I turn the music on and she is happy as a lark again!! My friends ALL want this stroller!!! Some have boys and are upset that they can't find it in any color other than pink!!!
