The Mockingbird stroller has officially hit the streets, and I’ve spent the last 3 weeks putting it through its paces. What makes this stroller stand out? For one, it’s a beautiful, high-quality chariot worthy of any mortal spawn. And two, it’s being sold direct-to-consumer for $350. A direct-to-consumer stroller? Brillant! (Or WTF does that mean?) Before we jump into all the different ways I tried to abuse it tested it out, here’s a brief business lesson: direct-to-consumer basically means the manufacturer sells directly to you, reducing costs […]
