Orbit Baby strollers are a Magic Beans classic: our very first Orbit rolled onto the floors of our Brookline store back in 2006. Plus, Magic Beans owners Sheri and Eli Gurock gave the original Orbit weeks of serious road-testing with their youngest child, making Orbit a real member of the Magic Beans family!
So it’s no surprise that our staff are eager evangelists for this high-tech, high-style brand, designed to optimize a jet-setting lifestyle with baby. Now on their third series (G3), Orbit Baby strollers continue to:
- Spin: All car seats and stroller seats rotate 360 degrees on the Orbit SmartHub. Because all seats are compatible with the SmartHub, you can also just pop your car seat right onto the stroller frame, making the most seamless travel system possible.
- Travel: Orbit car seats and stroller seats are optimized for airplanes and airports.
- Be kind to the earth and to babies: Orbitgreen fabrics are certified safe by Oeko-Tex Standards, and Orbit is dedicated to recycling and reducing their carbon footprint.
Here’s a few more words on the awesomeness of Orbit from their fans at Magic Beans!
Diana Toma, Manager, Magic Beans Brookline: The Orbit infant car seat base has one of the absolute BEST installs of any car seat we carry. Not only does it install easily, but when it’s installed, it attaches so incredibly tightly you can barely move it with even a good shove. The base has a hand crank that’s easy to find. When someone feels like they’ve pulled the latches/ seat belt tightly, you crank it and it takes out that last little bit of looseness and makes it perfect. While bases like Chicco and Nuna are probably slightly quicker for the average person to install, the Orbit base becomes one with the car, nothing beats it!
Since Orbit makes a modular system, all seats/ bassinets fit on all base, not that you would actually put a bassinet on a car base of course! But you CAN put the stroller seat on the bassinet cradle (the rocking base) and turn it into a rocker to calm the baby and cut down on the amount of stuff in your home. And as the baby becomes a toddler, they can continue to use the seat on the rocker base while they read (or *ahem* watch TV).
Alayna Cabral, Sales Associate, Magic Beans Boston: The way the Orbit seat can turn around 360 degrees so easily has always been one of my favorite features! Not to mention how you can put in the infant car seat without any adapters necessary. And I love the Paparazzi Shield on the infant car seat: smooth, breathable fabric, and great for all of those celebrity babies out there.
Melanie Carrasco, Sales Associate, Magic Beans Brookline: #OrbitErgonomics! The ergonomic carry handle on the Orbit infant car seat makes it awesome for a parents moving out and about! Plus, you can swivel the infant seat on both the stroller and the car seat base.
Ashley Logan, Store Merchandiser, Magic Beans Boston: The Orbit Baby stroller seat is wicked cool because of the way it turns sideways. I love telling people they can go to aquariums and zoos and walk straight ahead but still have their child be able to see clearly everything without straining to turn sideways in the stroller!
