Lets talk GEAR...strollers.

Being a store Owner, I physically get to see, touch and demo EVERY stroller or literally almost every stroller on the market.....now there are HUNDREDS of them, so Im going to post a Sampling of my TOP picks....

Uppababy Vista
  • Bassinet and reversible seat are easy to attach and remove on the frame

  • Powerwalkers and tall parents will appreciate the excellent legroom for taking a natural stride. The rear brake is controlled with a single little foot pedal.

  • Durable, high-end fabric line the reversible seat for your child's comfort, and can be removed and washed. Multiple seat recline positions are easily adjusted. An adjustable footrest helps provide the most natural fit for your child.

  • The adjustable handle telescopes upward and outward to bring shorter parents closer to the stroller and taller parents a bit farther away (increase legroom).

  • Rubber tires on foam cores simulate the great performance of real tires on all sorts of terrain, but never go flat

  • Four-wheel shock absorbers help smooth out the ride.

  • Easy folding mechanism quickly collapses the stroller (with the seat attached) into a compact, self-standing position.

  • Very large HUGE! storage basket on the UPPAbaby Vista is one of the largest in its class, with two convenient pockets for wallet / keys / cellphone and a water bottle

  • The included bassinet is the so cozy, you'll want to use it indoors too! It's safe to use up to 20 pounds. The UPPAbaby Vista bassinet/pram is lined with soft organic cotton/soy fabric, has a carrying handle and includes an apron and sun/bug shield.

  • Retails for $679.99

    * this is the stroller I chose to purchase for Pella and I have not one compliant other then the cup holder is a little cheesy, but the overall function of the stroller is a BREEZE, and I am a small girl so there is NO way im going to lug around some massive stroller system! Also, a little bummed it doesnt have a snack tray for Peej for when shes a big girl!...but WHATEVE!
    Oh yeah and has the 'Rumble Seat' option if you decide to add an additional baby to your familia, the stroller can grow as your family grows! <---AWESOME!

    2nd Pick
    Orbit Baby G2

    Special features for 2010:

    Now, I sell ORBITS ALLLLLL day long, it is an AWESOME system! However it is a hefty investment!! You will continue to have to fork out more cashola for the "toddler stroller" seat when baby is bigger, and the bassinet if you want that as an option. If you can afford it, id say GET IT! the G2 has been completely redesigned based of off the consumers likes and dislikes.The stroller frame is ALOT lighter then the old one, which is a PLUS! My cons with this system are; the infant car seat is HEAVY!!! too heavy! and the storage "pod" bag under neath is just TOO SMALL! and not easily accessible. otherwise this stroller is the "ROLLS ROYCE" of strollers!

    3rd Pick

    Mountain Buggy Urban jungle

    • Super easy pushing. Push urban jungle single with one finger - it's true, we tried!
    • Water bottle holder
    • Newborn-accommodating harness
    • Near-flat recline
    • Extra flat fold
    • The lightweight aluminum frame folds in two easy steps and collapses flat for compact storage. The narrow wheel base reduces the urban jungle's size on the road and in your car's trunk.
    • A water-bottle holder and under seat storage basket hold everything you need to get through your day
    • Compatible with most infant carseats
    Retails for $499.99
    Based upon Joggers, this one seems to take the cake for me, why?
    Its the lightest Jogging stroller on the market, it folds up like a breeze. Cup holder is included, the underneath storage is spacious, full recline for infants or napping toddler, 12" wheels for off/on terrain.. and yes, its a bit more then the "bob" but this stroller comes with more options and is just overall a better Jogging stroller. and I love that the MB has a sleeker more modern look

    Other great strollers....
    • Micralite Toro
    • CityMini
    • Uppababy G-lite
    • Phil & Teds Sport Buggy
    • Bumble ride Indie Twin


    1. What would you say about the Bugaboos?

    2. awesome you are so lucky to get to try out those. I am looking for a jogger so thanks for your feedback.

      P.S love your blog and your little girly is to die for.. Isn't being a mom the best.

      I am a new follower you can check out my blog too if you'd like.

      Have a good day!! :)

    3. looks expensive! i'm such a prude.

    4. Bugaboos are WAY too much for the money, nothing is included, folding the thing is a joke, Im not sold on any of the bugaboos, definitely over-rated.

      Kara, MOS DEF phil and Teds if your not into the "Tandem" otherwise Id say Bumbleride Indie, or Mountain buggy DUO
