Thanks Lowest Common Denominator!

Dear Maclaren,

I wanted to compliment you on how easy it was to request the hinge cover kits and how quickly they arrived. I am the proud owner of TWO Maclarens and I ADORE them both. Personally, I think I should work in your marketing department because I am already doing the work.

Children can be injured with the very same kid-safe spoon that they eat lunch with when parents aren't watching them. This hinge/finger issue is the same sort of issue - a no brainer! Move your child out of the way when you open and close the stroller!

I find it abhorrent that companies like yours and the manufacturers of blinds/roman shades with pull cords are under scrutiny right now because people are too lazy or don't care enough to be attentive to their own children.

Unfortunately, these parents cause us to all be treated to the lowest common denominator. It frustrates me to no end because even as astute parents, we are not spared the mandatory lectures or regimens at the doctors office, installing carseats, at school, etc. I suppose theey can no longer risk delineating between a parent who has some common sense and those who do not.

I just wanted you to know you're doing a great job! Keep up the good work!
