Here Are Strollers Made From Russian Submarine Mines.

Estonian sculptor Mati Karmin makes furniture out of salvaged WWII-era submarine mines left behind by the regrouping ex-Soviet army.

True, this cowhide number is still a seat belt and a cupholder short of an actual stroller.

So how's this? Strictly a showpiece, you understand:

As if it weren't awesome enough, there's this grenade mobile:

According to Karmin's website, marinemine.com, there is also a twin-sized carriage out there somewhere, but photos of if have yet to surface.

Not if you're fully-loaded with shells, but you could pull it behind your Ural.
