Holy crap, British stroller people, what the hell is wrong with you?
The Maclaren GB Type Au is a limited edition blingwreck based on the otherwise tasty CF6506, the black carbon fiber-and-black leather stroller the company introduced last year.
It has a Maclaren clan crest embroidered on the black leather seatback, fine, but the carbon fiber sheathing is gold-colored, and there's a detachable solid 9k gold [I didn't even know they made gold so diluted.] Maclaren diamond logo on the cellphone pocket [actually, a cell phone pocket sounds nice. I always tuck mine in the folded canopy, and then it gets inadvertently catapulted into space when the canopy gets deployed.]
There are only 20 of these things, and they're supposed to sell for 2,000 pounds. Each. Presumably, the main targets are the seven tackiest football WAGs [wives and girlfriends] who already bought the gold lame Mamas & Papas strollers that didn't go to Gwen Stefani and P. Diddy; nine Galleria-prowling Heathers in Houston; one hapless pregnant celebrity guest on Ellen deGeneres' show; that trucker who just won the Powerball; let's see, that leaves one more.
If it's for you, please tell us in the comments, so the rest of us can go ahead and pretend this thing never happened.
