We bought a stroller frame from MacLaren where you just put the carseat on top of it. Super light, easy to fold, and you don’t have to take baby in and out of the carseat… which can be such a pain especially when baby is sleeping. But now that the little one is getting bigger, and back is not getting any stronger, we’re on a hunt for a stroller. Oy vey, so much stuff out there! I’ve seen so many strollers ranging from a simple umbrella stroller, to a stroller on steroids with a $1000 price tag.
My husband likes the Bugaboo strollers because he’s a techie/gadget man that loves good design. But, we’re both also practical and not really willing to spend a grand on a stroller that will last us, uh, maybe two years. I like the MacLaren’s so far because they’re easy to fold, pretty light, easy to maneuver, moderately priced, and not so steroidal. But, I’m curious about these Bumbleride strollers. They look great, have my favorite colors, (green and orange), and I love the fact that with the Flyer or Queen B models, you can have the option of having baby face out or face you. For some reason, this feature seems very important to me. The cost for the Bumblerides are pretty much in between Graco and Bugaboo. They’re a relatively new company, but I feel as though they got the right idea with a modern edge.
My husband wants to go with the MacLaren and I’m still torn between that and the Bumbleride Flyer. So, which stroller is really convenient, easy, and worth every dime? Ah, who the heck knows. At least we know which jogging stroller we’re getting… phew.
