Many new parents now spend an enormous amount of money on an all singing/all dancing pushchairs. I can see the attraction - they are fantastic and convert and last through babyhood/toddler/small child stage. I wish they were around when mine were little. However, they are also very attractive to thieves, so please could you warn the parents of your grandchildren not to leave outside playgroups/toddler groups as many. it would seem, are being stolen. Some play groups are even installing racks (similar to bike racks) where they can be bolted to. Very sad that this has come to this and now this is the world we live in!
