Kustoms for Kids: The Roddler!

Illustration for article titled Kustoms for Kids: The Roddler!

Today's moms don't subscribe to the same, tired prestige products to which their moms did. They go for crossovers over minivans, Dexedrine over cocaine and custom made over off-the-rack. For their kids' strollers, a snooty Peg-Perego or McLaren simply will not do. For these moms, there's the Roddler. It combines traditional hot-rodding tropes like over-the-hub fenders and pearlescent paint with a monocoque chassis and up-class materials like ostritch, stingray, alligator and alcantara, which despite its latinate appearance, is not a member of the animal kingdom. Buyers can customize their Roddlers with pinstripes and AV gear like a DVD player and iPod dock. The Roddler starts at $2,500 [Kid Kustoms via Serious Wheels]

I get what they were trying to do, but for Hot Rod designers they totaly missed the mark. Swoopy wheel covers do not equal Hot Rod.
