Adventurous parents could soon be able to take their toddlers out on skateboarding trips with them - as a pushchair has been invented that combines the two.<br />
<br />
The wacky contraption consists of an elongated skateboard, known as a longboard, which has the seat section of a child's buggy attached to the front of it.<br />
<br />
Children between the ages of nine months and four-and-a-half years old can comfortably sit in the buggy while their parents can hop on the back and propel it along.<br />
<br />
The bizarre product, dubbed the 'Longboardstroller' has also been enhanced with a brake at the back and handlebars for steering behind the seat section.<br />
<br />
The enhanced pushchair has been created by design studio, Studio Peter Van Riet in Antwerp, Belgium as a partnership with children's product brand Quinny.<br />
<br />
Inventors behind the Longboardstroller hope that it will be an environmentally friendly alternative to travelling in cities and that parents will choose it over a car or bus.<br />
<br />
Around eight prototypes of the product have been invented and it is currently being tested and evaluated for health and safety measures.
