Uppa Baby goes 3-in-one

Uppa Vista 2009We had a chance to preview the new Uppa Vista model here at ABC, and there are some very exciting developments. For the stroller itself, Uppa has made some nice improvements. The harness features a new easy-adjust design, the basket has a softer spring to make access easier, and the weight capacity for the stroller seat has been upgraded to 50 lbs. The sun canopy has a new extension that pops out for increased protection, the mechanism is smoother and quieter, and the peek-a-boo window is bigger. The sun and weather shield now zip onto the canopy. The bassinets will be outfitted with a dye-free organic soy & cotton lining. But the big news is their new toddler seat attachment.

Phil & Teds has been dominating the “In-Line” double stroller category (so much so that they own the trademark for the term “In-Line”), but it’s no secret that they’ve had their share of problems recently. The Vista will be a welcome new addition for parents looking to extend the life of a single stroller.

The Vista toddler seat functions differently from the Phil & Teds model, since it snaps onto the front of the frame in a rear-facing position. In order to use it, the stroller seat must also be in the rear-facing position. The slight downside is that both kids are riding facing the parent, but the huge upside is that parents can use the car seat adaptor and the toddler seat at the same time. Best of all, you can use the stroller seat (or car seat), toddler seat AND a wheeled board all together (3 kids!!). Paging Brangelina….

  1. Any idea, will current Vista owners be able to attach the toddler seat to their frame?

  2. We plan to have a solution for owners of ’08 frames and earlier to be able to use the Rumble Seat. We’ll have something in place by the time the Rumble Seat is available and we’ll let our customers and retailers know. Thank you for your interest!

  3. 50lb weight limit doesn’t seem like very much when it’s divided up between 3 kids…is that the weight limit including the toddler seat and the wheeled board?

  4. When will actual delivery be possible?

  5. For what age will the jump seat be suitable and what will the weight limit for it be?, when will the entire set up be ready for sale and how much?(2009 stroller, jump seat and kiddie board)
    thanks

  6. We’re really happy everyone is so eager for the Rumble Seat! We do not have final answers for you yet on the exact specifications, price, and availability date. Rest assured, the moment everything is finalized, we’ll let MBeans know and they’ll let all of you know too!
