The Unofficial Double Decker Chariot

My friend Suz posted this on her blog the other day. I laughed and laughed. Then I laughed some more.

Her Rational:
I needed a way to transport two babies to the UPS store, about a half mile away, within an hour’s time. I didn’t really want to carry one and push the other in the stroller, which is what I have done in the past to get to the park. These kids are getting too heavy for that! But I knew if we all walked it would probably take three hours, if we made it at all. So I channeled my grandpa and my mom’s creative spirit and I rigged the Chariot into a double-decker bus. Abby (on top) was thrilled with the whole thing and we made it there and back without incident (unless you count a few cheers out the window of passing vehicles).

Thanks Suz for reminding us that sometimes getting out of the house takes a little… creativity.

    Love it! It’s great when people aren’t afraid to rig things up. There are definitely different kinds of cool, and this one is awesome!

  2. This makes me think of when we’d stack Cora and Ari double-decker inside of our single chariot – one sitting, one standing. Not nearly as creative as Suz’s approach, but it worked for short distances.

    Ahhh… this makes me laugh out loud every time….. I love it.

  4. We own a double, but after seeing this, I am wondering why we spent the extra money. What an inspiration!

    • Kristy – Haaaha, I know! We have a double chariot as well, this version is so much less of a sidewalk hog!

  5. This is so brilliant! Love it :)
