Britax Affinity All-Terrain Stroller Review

britax_affinity1Britax have just added a new all-terrain luxury customizable stroller to their collection called Affinity. The stroller comes with three different frames (black, white, or silver). The seat base is gray, but you can choose the color of your seat liner, canopy, basket liner and strap paddings from six beautiful colors that are part of so called ‘color pack’. The seat liner has such nice padding and is so soft, your child will feel very comfy and snug.

This is an everyday stroller that is great for long walks in the park or running errands. What really impressed me in Affinity is maneuverability. The air filled tires together with adjustable all-wheel suspension create an extremely smooth ride.

The leather covered handle bar has the one-hand grip that makes one-hand navigation super easy. My hands are always full. I am one of those moms who has a phone, cup of coffee, or a dog leash in the other hand. LOL.

Eddie Bauer Endurance Jogging Stroller Review

eddie_bauer_endurance1Eddie Bauer Endurance is a budget-friendly jogging stroller that is designed for on-the-go parents who want to get a basic jogger for a reasonable price. These days not many people have $500 for a fancy jogging stroller full of luxury features. The Edurance model is not only affordable, but also has a lot of great features. It rolls on three large air-filled tires that can go through any kind of terrain. The ‘follow-the-sun’ canopy isn’t big, but will provide your child with enough shade. The roomy seat has a one-hand recline and a mesh window at the top of the seat that provides nice air circulation.

The stroller is designed for children from 6 months and up to 50 lbs, but if you want to use for a newborn, covert it into a travel system. This buggy comes with a large easy to access basket that fits a large diaper bag. You will be pleasantly surprised to see a parent console and a child’s tray included. The fold is very easy and since this baby weighs only 21 lbs, you’ll have no problem lifting and loading it into the trunk.

I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because while this stroller doesn’t have many luxury features like adjustable leg rest, large canopy, peekaboo window, adjustable handle bar, or deep recline, it is very affordable, compact, and very light for a jogging stroller. The only real draw back is the short seat back with the mesh at the top, because if you have a taller child, you won’t be able to use the recline. It retails for around $200 on Amazon (free shipping/free returns and no sales tax) and it comes with a snack tray and parent organizer.

Bugaboo’s New Banana Stroller 2014

banana_strollerBugaboo decided to partner up with Andy Warhol, who is a famous pop art media superstar, to create a FUN Banana Collection for Cameleon 3 model. LOVE IT! This collection is inspired by Andy’s rock-and-roll banana print that is excellent for the stroller. The black banana on striking yellow background covers the sun canopy and continues on both the bassinet and backside of the seat fabric.

This stylish model comes with a black chassis (frame) that perfectly matches the print. For those of you who already own a Cameleon, you will be able to purchase a footmuff or seat liner with he same cool banana print to add an extra dash of pop-art to your stroller. How cool is this?

I feel like most of the strollers look the same with the boring colors and not-so-interesting patterns. So, I get very excited when I see something new and refreshing. We don’t need to take a stroller so serious. I personally like when the stroller looks like a fun piece of art and less than a car. That’s why one of my favorite stroller designs is Quinny Moodd by Britto model. The fun artistic design that covers frame and the bumper bar with bright colorful seat, makes it definitely stand out from the crowd.

The Banana Collection should be available starting May 1, 2014.

Baby Jogger Vue Umbrella Stroller Review

baby_jogger_vue1The Baby Jogger Vue is the FIRST  umbrella stroller with a reversible seat. The unique features of the seat is that in order to reverse it you don’t need to take it out. All you need to do is to push the back of the seat forward. That’s it!

The innovative design also includes a reversible canopy that easily works in both modes. This is not you typical flimsy umbrella stroller. The thick lightweight aluminum frame makes this stroller so sturdy, it can even be transform into a travel system.

The seat has a deep recline that is suitable for a newborn. It can accommodate a child from birth and up to 55 lbs. It also features a large canopy, 5 point harness, adjustable foot rest and compact fold. The small double 5.5″ wheels perform best on flat surfaces, but can handle some mommy terrain like grass, mulch, or uneven pavement.

The basket is very small and hard to access, so you won’t be able to go grocery shopping with it. But, since it’s very sturdy stroller, I think you can hang the dipper bag off the handle bars.

This baby weighs 17.5 lbs which is a little more than your average umbrella stroller. Keep in mind, it’s important for the stroller to weigh a little more in order to have travel system capability.

I gave this stroller 5 out of 5 stars because despite the small basket, loud canopy, and lack of peekaboo window, it impressed me with unique design of the reversible seat and canopy. It retail now for around $200 on Amazon (free shipping/free returns and no sales tax) and comes with a cup holder.
