With large wheels and font-wheel suspension Verve can handle any terrain. Take to the park, playground, or beach, your child will have a smooth ride no mater where you go.

Parents love Verve not only for its sleek and modern look, but also for the luxury features like adjustable handle bar, hand brake, floating canopy, and very large basket. It is a very compact stroller that is only 25″ wide making it great for navigating narrow aisles in the store, cafes, busy streets, and subway platforms.

There are over 7 different combination of the seating arrangement to accommodate one infant, two toddlers, or one infant and one toddler. For the newborn, you can transform it into a travels system by using it with a car seat or a carrycot/bassinet (sold separately). Once your family expands, you can covert Verve into a double inline mode by getting a 2nd seat. The 2nd seat is very roomy, with a small canopy, one-hand recline and three recline positions.

Phil and Teds Dot Stroller Review

phil_and_teds_dot1Phil and Teds Dot is one of the most compact inline strollers on the market. You can use it as a single or convert it into a double mode by purchasing a 2nd seat. This is an all-terrain stroller that rolls on 10″ air-filled wheels. Take it to the park, playground, or over the grass, it can tackle any kind of rough terrain. The Dot is great for active parents who like outdoors.

The main seat has a flat recline and can accommodate a child from birth and up to 44 lbs. It’s full of great features like adjustable handle bar, large basket, and easy one-hand fold. The Dot truly grows with your family. In single mode, you can use it as a travel system or a pram by purchasing a carrycot/bassinet. In double mode, you can use it as a travel system plus a seat for a toddler or two seats for two kids. All this goodness weighs 26 lbs which is an average weight for a inline stroller.

Despite all the great features I’ve listed, I gave this stroller 3 out of 5 stars because of the medium canopy size, inconvenient recline, lock of storage, and non-telescoping handle bar. But, my main issue is the easy to reach wheels in a double mode. A child can hurt himself by getting his hand into the wheel. This is not safe! Also, I think that the handle bar should telescope to provide more feet room instead of adjusting up and down.
