NEW! Cybex Priam 3 2019 Stroller Review

The Cybex Priam 3 2019 stroller is one of my favorite luxury models. It offers modern functionality, superior comfort and luxe style while still meeting all the challenges that today’s parents face.

For 2019 Cybex came out with this stunning rose gold frame, faux leather accents, and beautiful fashions. You can customize your Cybex Priam 3 stroller by choosing the finish of the frame and the seat color combination. The black fabrics with the rose gold frame finish is probably my favorite combination.

Speaking about customization, the previous Priam model had lot more customization options available that some parents found overwhelming. Before you could choose not only the color of the fabrics and finish of your frame, but also the size of the wheels and type of the seat.

It looks like for 2019, Cybex decided to simplify the model by offering only one type of wheels and one type of the seat.

NEW! Baby Jogger City Mini Tour 2 2019 Stroller Review

The Baby Jogger City Tour 2 is an updated version of the City Tour model which is a lightweight compact travel stroller. For 2019 they’ve completely redesigned it and now you can turn it into a travel system with an infant car seat or a pram with a carry cot (sold separately).

They’ve also updated the recline that now goes to almost a flat position, added an adjustable leg rest, redesigned one-hand fold and added new colors.

Despite weighing only 14 lbs this buggy has a very roomy seat with a tall canopy so even your older child will be comfortable. I like how nice and wide are the sides of the seat. You child will have plenty of support. The large UV 50+ canopy features three panels plus a sunvisor that can be tucked away when not needed.

The seat can accommodate a child from 3 month and up to 45 lbs. The basket is a great size for such a compact stroller and should fit your medium diaper bag. It rolls on 5″ and 6″ wheels (standard size for lightweight model) with a front-wheel suspension which helps to smooth out the bumps.

I really like this stroller. It’s light, compact, and full of great features. This is a big competition for the umbrella models because it weights less that many of them and takes a car seat which many umbrella models don’t. While it’s pretty compact I don’t think it meets the carry-on requirements. Check with your airline first.

NEW! Maclaren Techno Arc 2019 Stroller Review

The Maclaren Techno Arc 2019 is an updated version of the beloved Techno model. Just like the Quest Arc, it got a single adjustable handle bar instead of the double handles. The canopy was also completely redesigned and now provides even more coverage and air ventilation.

They’ve also added memory foam to the leg rest for more comfort. Finally the front wheels are now single instead of double. Everything else stayed the same. It still features: roomy seat, one-hand full recline suitable for a newborn, 55 lbs weight limit, nice basket, adjustable leg rest and additional storage.

The 6″ wheels together with all-wheel suspension provide a smooth ride. Despite all the upgrades the Techno Arc weighs stayed the same around 15 lbs. There is still no travel system option, but you can use the seat to create a newborn safe cocoon-like environment or get a carrycot that inserts into the seat. The included head hugger and shoulder pads will provide additional comfort.

This buggy comes in two colors and retails for around $420 which is more expensive than the older version. I think it’s a great stroller, but the price is higher than I would like to see. If you don’t want to spend that much on an umbrella stroller, you can take a look at the Maclaren Quest Arc which costs only $345 and is almost identical to Techno Arc except for the smaller 5″ wheels.

NEW! Maclaren Quest Arc 2019 Stroller Review

For 2019 Maclaren has completely redesigned their Quest model to compete with other lightweight models on the market. While it still has that long umbrella fold the new Quest Arc 2019 model sports a single handle bar instead of the double (like on most other umbrella strollers) and comes in beautiful new colors.

As you probably know Maclaren Quest is one of my favorite models in umbrella category aside from the UPPAbaby G-Luxe. It’s stylish and is full of great features like huge canopy, adjustable leg rest, adjustable handle bar, good size basket, all-wheel suspension and additional storage.

NEW! UPPAbaby Minu Lightweight 2019 Stroller Review

The Minu is a new lightweight compact stroller from UPPAbaby. It’s designed for on-the-go parents that like to run errands and travel.

BTW, I’ve noticed there have been a lot of new lightweight non-umbrella models on the market. Very often these models have more features and are just as compact.

The Minu is not an exception. I think it was designed to compete with Babyzen Yoyo+ Plus which is super popular especially in Europe.

While Minu has a lot of the same features as Yoyo it is not as compact (from what I can tell) and won’t fit in the overhead storage on the plane. But, there are a lot of other great things parents will love.

It features a very roomy seat with a deep recline that can accommodate a child from 3 months and up to 50 lbs. If you have a newborn you can convert it into a travel system by replacing the seat with an infant car seat or by converting it into a pram by replacing the seat with a birth kit. It works with Mesa and Maxi-Cosi car seats.

NEW! Nuna Mixx 2019 Stroller Review

As you probably know, the Nuna Mixx became an instant hit as soon as it was released a few years ago. Parents loved its stylish look and amazing features like infant-ready flat recline, huge basket, reversible seat, and large all-terrain wheels. So of course when I found out I am pregnant with my son last year, I ran to buy Mixx2 since I am a huge fan of Nuna products. I’ve been using it now for over 9 months and I absolutely love it!

Although the 2019 model is very similar to the 2018, there has been some updates like: higher seat position, mesh seat back underneath the seat liner, removable seat liner, larger canopy mesh window, and new fashions.

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).

NEW! Cybex Balios S 2019 Stroller Review

Every time I test a stroller I always try to improve it in my mind getting it closer to that perfect model. Occasionally I dream of designing my own model thinking what features from what strollers I would take and what style I would use.

As you probably know from my reviews, I am a very practical person who doesn’t want to compromise on style. I do like fashion and I do like brand things.

I would rather have one great stroller instead of 5 cheap strollers for every occasion. That being said, I think I finally found the PERFECT full size stroller. Yes, I am talking about Cybex Balios S! This is an all-terrain reversible-seat stroller that has an one-hand compact fold and it weighs only 24 lbs.

The combination of the large wheels and all-wheel suspension provide a smooth ride. You can easily push it with one hand.

It’s great for long walks at the park, city streets or grocery shopping. You can also turn this baby into a stylish pram by replacing the seat with a carry cot or a travel system by replacing the seat with an infant car seat. It also features huge canopy, adjustable handle bar, extra large basket, adjustable leg rest, flip-flop-friendly brake, and adjustable handle bar.
