People like MacGyver inspired the world to find creative solutions to some of life’s less complicated problems; like building radios out of two coconuts and a hairbrush and using a cardboard box and a spare pair of rollerblades as a contraption for carrying children. Rather than tangle with duct-tape and risk sticky fingers with superglue, transport your bundle of joy in style and pay R1499.50 for a Nippy Blitz.
Anyone who’s ever gone shopping with a mini-me in tow knows that it can be one of the most frustrating experiences short of standing in the queue at the bank. Badly laid-out shops with less manoeuvring space than those little mat-cities for toy-cars and the unfortunate evolutionary fact that human beings have only two hands means that you can choose between carrying your tyke in one arm and pushing a trolley with the other, or sitting them in the trolley seat and hoping they don’t try too hard to climb out. Which they always do.
The nippy blitz is like a superman to the rescue, reaffirming your super-parent status. Versatile enough to function as a pram and a stroller, all four wheels give new meaning to the word manoeuvrability with three-sixty degree swivel on all four wheels. With a large storage capacity for groceries, jackets or your pet toy-poodle, you don’t have to worry about needing another four arms and enough hand-eye coordination to control both a stroller and a trolley. The robust aluminium frame is also sturdy enough to support whatever you’re carrying as well as your offspring. Though some people maintain that the child-seat in trolleys is more than enough to take your child around in, experience has taught many that the adventurous little nippers like to crawl around and climb out and over everything – their grabby-hands can also be a problem from such an ideal vantage-point – and the five-point safety harness on Nippy’s pram solves this with ease. With easy and safe folding for storage, you don’t even need to consider buying a bigger car just to transport your child-transport.
Whether you’re looking to replace the stroller you already possess or the stork is mid-flight, the Nippy Blitz is ideal and with car-seat and carry-cot attachments possible, it serves as a good investment for any parent.
