More importantly, Orbit has decided to bundle the stroller seat and the Orbit frame to make the Orbit Toddler Stroller. This is a great way to get into the Orbit system if you missed out when your baby was a newborn, particularly if you plan to have more children down the road.
I’ve already posted an extensive Road Test review of my Orbit Infant System, but I will reiterate how pleased I’ve been with it. I think the stroller frame is very well designed. The fold is a showstopper and the hybrid-style wheel configuration offers a nice ride – and it’s not bad in the snow. The wheelbase is a little long and a little wide, but you get used to it quickly. The great benefit to investing in the Orbit is the flexibility and longevity. Use it as a toddler stroller, use it with the Orbit Toddler Car Seat, then use it with a newborn all over again. The only hitch is that they don’t currently sell the Infant Car Seat as a standalone product, but I can only guess that they’re working on that.
