My 8 month old granddaughter has a nifty walker. If I should need one in my old age, I want one at least as snazzy. (More)

And this is my granddaughter’s walker


If I need a walker in my old age, I want lights, sound effects, music and a voice that says. “Keep going, you’re doing great.” Really is that too much to ask? Where are all the designers who were supposed to be catering to the baby boomers as we aged? My granddaughter’s walker was $20 less than the cheapest one I cited above. If someday I need a walker, I want a snazzy one.
