Muv Reis 2016 Stroller Review

muv-reis-stroller16The Muv is a new European company that has recently entered US market. The’ve presented two new strollers called Reis and Gaan. Since I saw them at the ABC Kids Expo 2015 for the first time, I can only give you a brief overview.

Both strollers are very similar, but have different number of wheels. Reis rolls on four wheels while Gaan has only three. Reis is a full featured stroller with the reversible seat that comes with a bassinet. It reminds me a lot of UPPAbaby Vista model which also comes with a matching bassinet and has very similar clean lines and modern design.

The Reis model rolls on four large EVA foam filled wheels that together with all-wheel suspension will tackle any terrain. The parents will love the huge canopy with 6 mesh windows, adjustable telescoping handle bar, huge basket with built-in cooler, and one-hand deep recline suitable for a newborn. It weighs 26 lbs with the seat attached.

Maxi-Cosi Adorra 2016 Travel System Review

maxi-cosi-adorra1There was so much buzz around new Rachel Zoe Collection and Quinny Reversible Seat Jogger at the Maxi-Cosi booth at the ABC Kids Expo 2015, that I almost didn’t notice a new travel system called Adorra. This is a great new addition to the Maxi-Cosi family that many parents will like because it is stylish, simple, and very practical.

The Adorra travel system comes with a reversible-seat stroller and a matching Maxi-Cosi Mico Max infant car seat. It looks pretty sleek. I like the combination of the black frame and dark fabrics with some gray pattern. 

The Adorra stroller has a lot of great features like large canopy with a pop-out sunvisor, deep one-hand recline suitable for a newborn, removable machine-washable liner, adjustable leg rest, huge basket, and telescoping handle bar. This puppy weighs 26 lbs, which is about average weight for the full-featured reversible-seat stroller.

Peg Perego Book Cross 2016 Stroller Review

peg-perego-book-cross19

The Book Cross is a new all-terrain stroller from Peg Perego. The Cross model designed for active parents who like to spend whole days outdoors. This model is a serious competition for the popular City Mini GT because it is also lightweight for an all-terrain (only 22 lbs), and has an one-hand fold.

It rolls on three large puncture proof tires that together with all-wheel suspension provide a smooth ride even over uneven terrain. You will also enjoy a large canopy with a peekaboo window, adjustable handle bar with a hand brake, easy to access large basket, and adjustable leg rest.

The deep recline goes to almost flat position perfect for a newborn. The seat is VERY roomy and will accommodate a taller toddler without a problem.

Another great feature of Cross is ability to turn into a travel system with Primo Viaggio infant car seat or a pram with Navetta XL and Navetta Pop-up bassinets. The Book Cross has a lot of great things going on that City Mini GT doesn’t have.

Rachel Zoe x Quinny and Maxi-Cosi Collection 2016

quinny-moodd-rachel15I have to admit, I am guilty of watching Rachel Zoe reality show. But, in my defense I watched it because I love fashion. Before having children Rachel Zoe could care less about kids stuff, but after her first son was born she got obsessed!

She kind of remind me of myself, because I was so into my career as a web designer I never payed attention to parenting stuff. Now, look at me, I am obsessing about every new stroller I see and have a web site about it. LOL. Funny how kids completely change us.

Since Rachel Zoe is one of the best stylist I was happy to see she decided to do a new collection for Quinny and Maxi-Cosi. This is one of the most luxurious collections I’ve seen on ABC Kids Expo 2015.

Mountain Buggy Cosmopolitan Geo 2016 Luxury Edition

cosmopolitan-geo-stroller27The Mountain Buggy have just introduced their new Cosmopolitan Geo Luxury Edition at the ABC Kids Expo 2015. This luxury collection adds refined styling and enhances functionality of a Mountain Buggy Cosmopolitan classic model.

In 2015, Mountain Buggy did the same to their popular Urban Jungle model by releasing a luxury collection that featured new stylish fabrics, accessories, and improved features.

To be honest, although I really like the Cosmopolitan stroller, I was never a big fan of its look. The fabrics, the frame lines and the detailing were just not that impressive. It looked very average and didn’t have a definitive luxurious style that their talked about on their site. You can say the word ‘luxury’ as many times as you want, it doesn’t mean it will look any better.

Cybex Priam Stroller Review

cybex-priam-stroller32Cybex has recently released a new luxury stroller called Priam. This is an amazing versatile stroller that you can customize for your lifestyle. Choose between three types of wheels: lite for city living, trekking for hybrid surfaces or all-terrain for long walks at the park. How cool is that?

But that’s not all! You can choose between two seats: Lux seat that has a flat recline and adjustable leg rest, or 2-In-1 seat that can convert into bassinet. Both seats are reversible and are located higher on the frame so you can use it as a high chair at the restaurant. The higher position on the frame also brings the baby closer to you promoting better bonding.

Both seats have one-hand lever recline. The Lux seat is suitable from birth and up to 38 lbs, while 2-In-1 seat can accommodate a child from 6 months and up to 38 lbs. If you want to use the 2-In-1 sea from birth you can convert it into a bassinet or convert it into a travel system with a purchase of one of the Cybex infant car seats. There is also a bassinet/carry cot that you can purchase separately (probably if you have a Lux seat) to convert your stroller into a stylish pram.

phil-and-teds-navigator-stroller26The Phil and Teds Navigator is the first stroller with an AUTO STOP feature. If you let go of the handle bar, it stops! How cool is that? This is an all-terrain stroller that converts into a double inline stroller.

You can use it for one child, two newborns, newborn and a toddler, two toddlers or three kids with an addition of a stroller board. You can convert it into a travel system or a stylish pram by adding a bassinet. With 26 riding options Navigator will grow with your family.

Even though it does not have a reversible seat, there is a double kit you can get that has rear facing compatibility so your child can face you. The maneuverability is outstanding! The 12″ air-filled all-terrain tires will provide your child with a smooth ride. It’s perfect for long walks at the park, off road adventures, or even light jogging.

Valco Baby Snap Ultra Stroller Review

valco-ultra-light-stroller24The Valco Baby Snap Ultra stroller is finally here! Like many parents I’ve been waiting for this stroller since the beginning of 2015. Wondering why?

Well, because this is one of the lightest and most compact reversible strollers on the market. While it weighs only 19 lbs, it has large wheels that can handle a lot of different terrain.

But, the most exiting thing is that you can get all-terrain tires for this model and switch them. Voila! Now, you have an ALL-TERRAIN stroller that you can take off road. This way you don’t need to buy two strollers.

You can use regular wheels when you running errands, going to the mall, or grocery shopping and use all-terrain wheels when you are going to the park for a long walk.

The Snap Ultra truly grows with your child. It also has ability to transform into a travel system and a beautiful pram. The seat is very roomy with plenty of headroom for a taller toddler. The deep recline goes to almost a flat position suitable for a newborn. The huge canopy will provide your child with complete protection. It also features adjustable handle bar, adjustable leg rest, adjustable 5-point harness, huge basket, and flip-flop-friendly brake.
