OXO surprised everybody at the ABC Kids Expo 2015 by presenting two new strollers. Known for their sippy cups and toddler dining sets, OXO decided to get into the stroller market. The two new models OXO Tot Cubby and Cubby Plus are very simple, practical and stylish.
The Cubby Plus is an upgraded version of Cubby that has some extra features like upgraded material, adjustable handle bar, adjustable leg rest, easily adjustable harness, front wheel suspension and anodized aluminum frame.
Cubby Plus also comes with large basket, large canopy, deep recline, flip-flop-friendly brake, and lots of storage! The wheels are large and can handle a lot of terrain. This puppy weighs 20 lbs.
It has a travel system option and works with the most popular infant car seats. I think that Cubby Plus could be easily your ONLY stroller because it’s light, compact and is full of great features.
The only drawback in both models in my opinion is that you can use the seat from 6 months and not from birth. Although the recline is deep, it does not have a flat position suitable for a newborn. This could be a problem for OXO because their main competition like Britax B-Agile 4, City Mini 4, or Mamas & Papas Armadillo XT all have flat reclines.
You can get OXO Tot Cubby Plus in one of the three beautiful colors for around $399 on Amazon. It does not come with a cup holder nor the bumper bar, but you can purchase them 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. The SPF 50+ canopy is waterproof. At the first glance it looks like there is not peekaboo window, but it’s hidden under the last panel. The large peekaboo window is made out of dark mesh and has a Velcro closure.
-Roomy seat. The seat is pretty roomy with an one-hand strap recline. The recline is very deep, but it does not go to the flat position so you can use it from 6 months and up to 50 lbs.
-Mesh window. There is a large mesh window in the back of the stroller once you fully recline the seat. It has a large cover for when the weather gets chilly.
-Adjustable leg rest. The leg rest goes up and down.
-Storage pockets. There are three storage pockets on Cubby Plus. One if in the back of the canopy and another two are in the back of the seat. They are perfect for small parents essentials.
-Adjustable handle bar. The handle bar telescopes out from 39″ all the way up to 42″ from the ground.
-5-point harness. I love love love this harness! It adjusts like the harness in your car seat. You just pull on the strap at the bottom and it tightens up the shoulder straps right away. Why is it not standard on all the strollers?
-Flip-flop-friendly brake. The brake is located between rear wheels and is flip-flop friendly.
-Huge extendable basket. The basket is really great size and it can be expended by pulling the back of the basket towards you. Very easy to access from the back or the sides even with the seat fully reclined.
-Front-wheel suspension. While Cubby doesn’t have any suspension, Cubby Plus sports front-wheel suspension.
-Wheels. Cubby Plus rolls on four EVA foam filled wheels with 7″ wheels in the front and 10″ wheels in the back. The front wheels are swivel, but can be locked straight. These wheels are not all-terrain, but are large enough to handle a lot of different terrain without a problem.
-One-hand fold. I LOVE when stroller has an one-hand fold. This is probably my favorite feature aside from large canopies. And when that one-hand fold comes with an automatic lock and a standing fold it’s like an icing on the cake. LOL. Well, Cubby and Cubby Plus got that easy one-hand fold that you can find on Britax B-Agile and Baby Jogger City Mini models. Just pull on the handle in the middle of the seat and it will fold in half! There is an automatic lock and standing fold. Perfect if you have a bad back like me.
-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.
