When small children decide they no longer like the confines of a stroller, it can be tough to wrangle them while running errands.

The Whisper Ride Buggy ($60) by Step 2 makes a mom's life much easier. The steering wheel, cup holder and under the hood storage space make it an attractive toy to children and the Silent Ride Tires make it completely acceptable to take to the mall or supermarket.

Able to hold up to 50 pounds of precious cargo, the scooter is amazingly easy for a preoccupied parent to maneuver.
