Your Stairs Are Now a Jungle Gym Slide

While Quirky's new A/C window unit is stopping the presses, perhaps their best product idea yet has quietly been floating around. The concept behind the SlideRider is smart yet maddeningly simple: effortlessly turning a flight of stairs into a slide. Parents, relax; padded bumpers provide for safety, with a small kicker pad at the bottom. We really want to see this get made.

If only Quirky were to also invent a time machine so you could go back to being a kid again. Actually who are we kidding, this would totally be just as fun sliding down as a full-grown adult.
