Orbit Baby G3 Stroller Review

orbit-baby-g3-48I was a little surprised to see only a few Orbit Baby G3 stroller reviews considering how popular this model is. So, I feel like my review is way overdue. First of all, I want to say that I ABSOLUTELY love the unique design of G3. It doesn’t look like any other stroller. The futuristic style and clean lines set it apart from all other brands. If somebody in ‘Star Wars’ had a baby, they would definitely go for G3. Right? LOL.

The other day I was talking to my girlfriend who doesn’t have kids yet, but is trying to get pregnant. She always talks about baby stuff. We talked about popular strollers and then she asked: ‘What about that other thing that many celebrities use that has a futuristic egg-shaped seat?’ It’s like she knew it was a stroller, but thought maybe it wasn’t really just a stroller. Haha!

Speaking about celebrities, they absolutely love Orbit Baby. Some of the celebs spotted with it are: Kim Kardashian, Rachel Zoe, Selma Blair, Jessica Simpson, Molly Sims, Emily Blunt, Kristin Cavallari, Megan Fox, Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba and the list goes on.

OXO Tot Cubby 2016 Stroller Review

oxo-tot-cubby14OXO has presented two new strollers at the ABC Kids Expo 2015 called Cubby and Cubby Plus. Out of the two, the Cubby is a simpler model that is a little more compact, lighter, and less expensive.

This is a very practical stroller with compact one-hand fold, large easy-to-access basket, roomy seat and a large canopy with large pop-out sunvisor. The never-flat wheels are 6.5″ and 8.5″ which is somewhere in between the full size and the umbrella models.

This model weighs only 17 lbs and can be turned into a travel system with most popular infant car seats.

The Cubby could be a serious competition for Britax B-AgileBaby Jogger City Mini and Mamas & Papas Armadillo because it’s not only in the same weight category, but also has a lot of the same features like large canopy, compact one-hand fold, large mesh window in the back, and large basket.

Muv Gaan 2016 Stroller Review

muv-gaan-stroller2

The Muv is a new European company that has recently entered US market. They’ve presented two new strollers called Reis and Gaan at the ABC Kids Expo 2015. Since this was the first time I saw them, I can only give you a brief overview of the main features.

Both strollers are very similar, but have different number of wheels. Reis rolls on four wheels while Gaan has only three. Let’s take a look at Gaan.

The Gaan model rolls on three large EVA foam filled wheels that are 12″ according to the Muv site. When I measured the wheels at the Expo, they were only 10″. If you look at the photo, they really don’t look 12″ because 12″ are really large tires. I think they’ve made a mistake.

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.

iCoo Acrobat Travel System Review

icoo-acrobat-stroller34The new iCoo Acrobat travel system absolutely blew me away when I saw it at the ABC Kids Expo 2015. The combination of the glamorous copper frame with the real leather finishes create a unique trendy look. It impressed me with its modern design of the wheels and attention to details.

The travel system includes the iCoo Acrobat stroller and iCoo ProSafe 35 infant car seat. The iCoo Acrobat stroller is somewhere in between a full size and a lightweight models. It has a lot of features of a full size stroller while still being compact and light. The wheels are a little smaller than you will find on a full size model, but are larger than on umbrella model.

The iCoo Acrobat stroller screams luxury with its copper frame and REAL leather on the bumper bar, handle and the seat liner. You can also see copper detailing on the wheels, canopy and seat liner.  The shiny copper fabric inside of the canopy makes it really pop.

GB Evoq 4-in-1 Travel System Review

gb-evoq-stroller30The GB Evoq 4-in-1 travel system has a sleek and modern design and grows with your child. You can purchase Evoq as a stand alone or as a travel system with GB Asana 35 infant car seat. This is a very simple and affordable model with a lot of great features found on luxury strollers.

The GB Evoq stroller has a reversible seat with deep one-hand recline suitable for a newborn, huge canopy, adjustable handle bar, adjustable leg rest, automatic lock, and a large basket. The two-hand fold is very easy and you can fold it with the seat attached.

The Evoq is a full size stroller that you can use everyday for running errands, going to the park or a stroll around neighborhood. Since the wheels are not very big and are not all-terrain, it performs best on flat surfaces, but can tackle some so called mommy terrain if needed.
