OXO 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-Agile, Baby 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.
Just like B-Agile and City Mini I think it could be your ONLY stroller. It comes in three colors and retails for $299 on Amazon. You can also purchase cup holder and a bumper bar separately.
-Large canopy. The canopy is a great size plus it has a large pop-out sunvisor that will provide your child with full sun protection. There is also a large mesh peekaboo window with a Velcro closure.
-Roomy seat. The roomy seat has one-hand strap recline that is deep, but doesn’t go to the flat position so you can only use if from 6 months and up to 50 lbs.
-5-point harness. It has an adjustable padded 5-point harness with a center release buckle.
-Tall handle bar. Unlike Cubby+ the handle bar on Cubby is not adjustable, but is pretty tall at 41″ from the ground.
-Lot of storage. There is a lot of storage aside from the basket including a small zipper pocket in the back of the canopy and two small pockets in the back of the seat that you can store diapers and wipes in. Perfect!
-Large basket. The basket is very large and easy to access. You can also expend it by pulling the back of the basket back. Much better basket than on City Mini.
-Wheels. It rolls on four EVA foam filled wheels with 6.5″ wheels in the front and 8.5″ wheels in the back.
-Brake. The flip-flop-friendly brake is located between rear wheels.
-One-hand fold. All you need to do to fold it is to pull on the strap in the middle of the seat and it will fold in half. Because there is an automatic lock and standing fold, your seat will ever get dirty. I also like that the handle bar doesn’t touch the ground when it’s standing.
-Travel system option. You can purchase an adapter for Graco, Chicco, Peg Perego, and Britax. There might be also other popular brands, but I only know about these for now.

Where to buy it
My favorite place to buy strollers and a lot of other baby items is Amazon. It usually has the lowest prices, free shipping, free returns and no sales tax. You can get OXO Tot Cubby in one of the three beautiful colors for around $299 on Amazon.
