Would you let your baby ride around on a roomba? (the robotic vacuum cleaner)

Seems some parents find it humorous ....

At first, the videos are cute, even tame, by YouTube standards: Babies in Bumbo chairs are put atop Roombas, the robotic vacuum cleaners that spin around and clean up so you don't have to. And over the years, there have been many Roomba-related videos showing the robot freaking out dogs, cats, bunnies and babies. But the bumper-car baby thing takes it in a whole 'nother direction.

  • its not a toy so therfore its not ment to be used as one. its a cleaning tool....if my child wanted to ride on one, id just go and get a powerwheel or something similar. (if i could afford a roomba, i can afford a powerwheel lol)

  • If I had a child, I wouldn't endanger it that way, and if I spent money on a roomba I wouldn't do something to destroy it.
