London, May 15 (ANI): Mums and dads can now peddle their way to the parks or shops along with their kids, courtesy the pushchair that converts into a child-carrying bicycle in just 20 seconds.

The three-wheeled Taga - described by makers as the ultimate ‘yummy mummy accessory’ is capable of carrying youngsters up to six years of age.

Children are carried in forward-facing seats between the handlebars of the bike and are secured by a five-point harness.

It saves on costly petrol and parking charges. It is also environmentally friendly because it is carbon emission free.

It contains head cushion that offers children added protection and a fully-sealed chain guard ensures that no clothes or body parts can get trapped.

The bike can be easily disassembled and fitted with a wide variety of accessories including a shopping basket or rain hood.

Taga is available in red, green, orange or light-blue. It has been developed over the last four years by an international team of designers and engineers.

Taga general manager Hagai Barak insists that the pushchair-bicycle, which has just gone on sale in the UK, turned a standard journey into an adventure.

“Taga is what all busy city living, environmentally conscious parents have been waiting for,” the Telegraph quoted a Barak as saying.

“Navigating any town or city with small children can be challenging, not to mention time consuming, costly and harmful to the environment if you must go everywhere by car.

“Taga has been specifically designed to allow parents and children to travel together more intimately and easily, turning a typical urban journey into an adventure,” Barak added. (ANI)
