Stroller

I have had pictures of Sean in his stroller on here and have had an inquiry regarding it. We have had it for several years. Sean was small for so long that we used a regular stroller for him for quite some time. Then, when he took his growth spurt I still wanted one for him so we could go on walks. He can walk but you never know when he'll just decide he doesn't want to go any further and stop, so it's easier for him to be in a stroller. And, he loves it. Of course, I would love it too if someone would push me around in one! Anyway, I starting looking for a stroller and couldn't find anything. I asked our two home health care stores and they didn't even know where I could find one. They only had access to wheelchairs. So, I started looking on line and found some strollers. They were quite expensive - some being $1,000-$1,200. Since Sean doesn't require any special restraints or support systems I didn't want to have to spend that much money on a stroller. I found this one and it is a Kool Stop Special Use stroller. It holds up to 150 pounds. We have had it for about 3 or 4 years and it is still holding up quite well. I checked with the company and they still have them and they are now selling for $650.00 (they have went up alot since we got ours). But, I still think that would be a good price. The stroller can be found at http://www.koolstop.com/. It is under the jogging stroller tab and then it is the special use stroller. Let me know if you have any questions.
You can see he is quite comfortable. There is also a shoulder harness to keep him in.
He's about 4'9" and you can see how he fills it out.

He does look comfy! And I agree -- it would be nice to be pushed around in a stroller. Sean has the right idea!
