Listen: I love Batman, and, for obvious reasons, I am always up for seeing people who love Batman get unexpected and unique Batman-related presents just because they really, really love Batman. As a result, it was pretty fun to watch the video above, an installment of Super-Fan Builds where a big Batman fan and his presumably equally Batman-loving son are given a custom-made stroller built to look like the Tumbler from Batman Begins.
There's just one problem, and it's a pretty obvious one. You, uh... you know how Batman's origin story goes, right? As cool as it is, maybe an item that makes your kid more like Batman is not the best idea.
Whatever your opinion of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy, the Bat-vehicles of the series had an undeniable coolness.

Customized versions of the Batmobile are hardly uncommon. We've seen go-karts, civilian cars and Batpods put through the ringer to look exactly like Bruce Wayne's crime-fighting ride of choice. But I'm pretty sure that this is the first time I've ever seen a Batmobile in golf cart form...
