  1. funny people wasted a tremendous amount of money on this item. It could of been used to th thousands among us that need help right now.

  2. The steering wheels are next. The way they are made they often slip out of the babies hands. Also they could use a better cupholder.

    This is stupid! Nobody should be leaving a stroller parked on a hill.
