The Parentville Fave Five - Strolling Into Spring, Our Fave Five Strollers
We're finally seeing signs of Spring, and this makes us want to stroll outside with our kids! Here's a great list of our members' favorite strollers.
The Baby Jogger City Select has 20 configurations forward and rear facing to hold two kids. It has a 4-position recline, is super easy to fold, has a large basket, smooth maneuverability (foam tires) with hand brake, and most impressively are the 16 combinations you can achieve with the City Select's double conversion kit.
Thanks to our member and clever mom blogger, Life with Pooka, we know her favorites. Not only is the Orbit Baby a cozy stroller, but it is also your car seat. The rotating base allows the seat to face forward, backward, or even to the side so you can pull the stroller up to a restaurant table. The base folds in half compactly and can be stowed easily in your trunk. And it grows with your child by adding a new toddler car seat!
Phil & Ted's Sport Buggy is a great stroller for two kids of different ages. It's good for suburban strolling, kids love to cruise in the bottom seat! But since the seat is close to the ground, it's not recommended for urban environments where mud puddles and dog doo doo are possible obstacles. This easily fits in the trunk of a car for trips to the mall, playground, etc.
Kolcraft Contours Stroller is a hardy stroller for anyone looking to get the most for their money. It has off roading wheels, a huge basket, cup holder and snack tray, and a seat that reverses for baby to look either way. Includes a cup holder and snack tray. It can recline flat for an infant and also hold a 4-year-old.
The Uppa Baby Vista Travel System is easier to use than the Bugaboo (The fold is one-handed, and the seat does not need to be removed to fold.). It has a great basket, too, which is key for urban living. However, be sure to get a cup holder to replace the one that comes with it - it's too flimsy!
If you have recommendations on your favorite cup holders, comment here, or post a recommendation on Parentville!
