“I think (replacing them) is a bad idea. I think this one, all the children love it. Now we have to pay eight bucks.”

“(The tablet strollers) keep them entertained. With my sister's kids, who are two-and-a-half, they make shopping a breeze.”

“$8 you're paying, for that? It's not worth it.”

“The iPad is just for the distraction? For me, I don't want to engage my child with (a tablet) yet.”

Matt Fonacier

“I think it should be free, first of all. Because there are no parents who want to give away $8 just to use strollers.”
