NEW! UPPAbaby Vista 2019 Stroller Review

The UPPAbaby Vista is one of the MOST popular strollers on today’s market. Parents love its ability to grow with the family from birth to toddler years. It goes from: 1) the bassinet mode 2) to a travel system mode 3) to a single stroller mode and finally 4) to a double mode with an addition of a second seat. You can even add a stroller board for an older child!

As you probably know, Vista got some updates in 2017 including narrower frame, better tires, lighter weight, new accessories, improved sunshade, leather accents, and new colors.

For 2018 there has been only a few minor updates and new colors. The bassinet is a littler longer now so it can accommodate a larger child, the front wheels are now made out of the same material as the rear, the handle bar and the bumper bar on all the Vista models have genuine leather cover (before it was only on some colors).

Nuna Demi Grow 2018 Stroller Review

There are not a lot of high quality convertible strollers on the market, so I was very excited to see a new Nuna Demi Grow model. This models converts from the single into a double tandem mode with an addition of the second seat.

Since Demi Grow looks very similar to the popular UPPAbaby Vista and has a lot of similar features so I can’t help but compare them throughout my review. And this is going to be a long review… Sorry guys, but there are a lot of features to cover.

The Demi Grow is a very chic and modern stroller that grows with your family. It can accommodate siblings close in age or twins. It can handle two full size seats, two bassinets, or two car seats. Both toddler seats are the same and have a weight limit of 50 lbs.

The seat has huge canopy plus a sunvisor and pull out drape. The one hand recline goes to a flat position suitable for a newborn. I like the zip off seat liner that exposes a mesh seat underneath. Great for hot summer days.

There is also an adjustable leg rest, swing-away bumper bar, adjustable handle bar, easy fold, auto lock, standing fold and huge basket. It rolls on foam filled wheels that together with all-wheel suspension provide a nice ride. The basket is huge and can fit your largest diaper bag.

Joolz Geo 2 2018 Stroller Review

The Joolz Geo 2 is a new convertible all-terrain stroller that can be used in a single or a double tandem mode. It can handle two toddler seats, two bassinets or two infant car seats. The ability to grow with the family make it great option for the modern family.

The Joolz Geo 2 2018 definitely stands out with its luxury fabrics, customizable accents and modern frame design. Aside from the design another unique feature is the second toddler seat that goes in place of the basket and reminds me of a lounging chair.

The large all-terrain wheels together with all-wheel suspension can handle a lot of different terrains like grass, mulch, or snow while providing a smooth ride. The narrow design (only 24″ wide) allows parents easily navigate busy streets.

It comes with the matching bassinet kit so you can start using it from birth. The roomy seat can handle a child up to 45 lbs. You can also convert it into a travel system with a popular car seat.

Silver Cross Wave 2018 Stroller Review

The Silver Cross has been a pioneer in the stroller industry creating the FIRST baby carriage ever! They’ve been making strollers since 1877. This company has been very popular in Europe for a long time and they are finally entering US market. I am not sure why it took them that long.

Their latest model Silver Cross Wave combines timeless style with modern-day functionality adapting to the changing needs of the modern families.

The Silver Cross Wave is a reversible seat stroller that can be converted from single mode into a double mode and can handle twins or siblings close in age. It comes with all the adapters needed so you can use it as a double stroller right away.

This stylish looking buggy is very similar to the beloved UPPAbaby Vista model that also converts from single to double. It also comes with a bassinet and features: roomy seat with one-hand recline, large canopy with pop-out sunvisor, large basket, flip-flop-friendly brake, adjustable handle bar and leg rest and etc.

The cool thing about Wave is that you can use built-in adapters to position the main seat higher on the frame bringing your child closer to you and promoting better bonding experience.

Thule Sleek 2018 Stroller Review

The Thule Sleek is a new convertible stroller that transforms from single into a double mode. It can handle twins or siblings close in age. You can buy it as a single model and than later on add the second seat or even a stroller board for an older child.

With 14 different seating arrangements, it grows with your family. It can handle two toddler seats, two bassinets, or two car seats. Both seats are reversible and have a deep recline. This model is very similar to the popular UPPAbaby Vista.

Since Sleek is still not out, I can’t tell you if it’s better than Vista. From what I’ve seen at the ABC Kids Expo where this model was first presented, it doesn’t have anything that makes it stand out except for the modern design and a lighter weight of 24 lbs which is a few pounds lighter than most convertible strollers.

Just like Vista it features large canopy, adjustable leg rest, swing-away bumper bar, adjustable handle bar, large basket, all-terrain wheels, all-wheel suspension and flip-flop-friendly brake.

Austlen Entourage Stroller Review

austlen-entourage-stroller29One of the new amazing strollers that I saw at the ABC Kids Expo was Austlen Entourage. It has a unique extendable frame that allows you to carry a LOT of stuff. And, by a lot I mean groceries, suitcases, laundry, beach balls, beach chairs with umbrellas and noodles, large cooler and so on. You get the picture.  That’s not all. It also converts into a double stroller with the addition of a second seat, infant car seat, platform rider, or a sit-n-stand!

The durable frame can handle up to 150 lbs combined weight. What other stroller can do that? Amazing! This is a perfect model for busy parents who have multiple kids and always need to carry a lot of stuff with them.

Another unique features of this buggy is the ability to put a second infant car seat right next to the handle bar much higher on the frame than on any other stroller I’ve seen. This brings your baby as close to you as possible promoting interaction and eye contact. And, as you know better bonding is very important at this age.

This stroller really grows with your family. You can use it in a single mode as a travel system with an infant car seat, or a double mode with two infant car seats, or an infant car seat and a main seat, or with two seats, or with main seat and a sit-n-stand, or in a single mode with a rider platform in the back. It will work for twins or a toddler and a newborn. You will be also happy to know that this buggy has over 30 different configurations.

Bugaboo Donkey 2017 Stroller Review

bugaboo-donkey-2017-21The Bugaboo Donkey 2017 is a luxury all-terrain stroller that transforms from a single into a double side-by-side mode. You can buy it as a single version and get a second kit later or you can buy it as a double.

The MONO (single) version is used for one child and comes with a seat, bassinet, and a shopping bag that you see next to the seat. The DUO version is designed for different age kids and comes with two seats, one bassinet, and a shopping bag.

The TWIN version is designed for two kids the same age and comes with two bassinets, two seats, and a shopping bag although I don’t know where you would put it if you are using two seats all the time. You can also covert it into a travel system with an addition of one or two infant car seats.

This buggy is perfect for active growing family that doesn’t want to slow down despite having multiple kids. The maneuverability is outstanding! You can push it with a pinky.

The 10″ and 12″ air-filled wheels can handle ANY terrain with ease. You can walk trails with this one. There is even a two-wheel mode that helps you tackle snow and sand (personally, I think that two-wheel mode is pretty useless). It also features one-hand deep recline, large basket, huge canopy, automatic lock, standing fold, run-away strap, and adjustable handle bar.

Baby Jogger City Select LUX Stroller Review

city-select-lux4The Baby Jogger City Select Lux is an updated version of the beloved City Select. As you probably know, City Select has been one of the best selling strollers for a while. Parents love it’s ability to grow with the family converting from a single into a double inline mode or even a triple mode with an addition of a stroller board.

Needless to say I was super exited to see the new Lux model. Let me tell you, it’s amazing! For 2017 City Select got a complete face lift eliminating all of their drawbacks. Is it a perfect stroller now? It just might be. Let’s take a look.

The City Select Lux is a reversible seat stroller with 20 seat combinations (instead of 16) and an ability to take two infant car seats, two fulls size seats, or two bassinets. You can even transport three kids by adding a stroller board. There is also a new jump seat that you can use instead of the main seat for your older child. It turns Lux into a sit-n-stand type of stroller adding 4 more seating arrangements.

The fold is easier and more compact comparing to the previous one. I like how the seat folds in half protecting the inside of the seat from dirt and damage. Before, it was exposed collecting all the dust. You can fold the stroller with both seat attached. And, they’ve added an automatic lock!
