A stroller hang-up

If storage space is tight, finding a place to keep your stroller can be frustrating. Metrotots has come to the rescue with the StrollAway, a new hook which hangs on the back of a door and keeps your folded stroller aloft and out of the way. What’s great is the sturdy, forked design of the hook, which can accommodate a ... Read More »

Road Test: Mountain Buggy Swift

I can’t remember the last time Mountain Buggy came out with an entirely new stroller, but at this year’s ABC Show, their new Swift was one of our favorite introductions. For years we’ve been waiting for Mountain Buggy to modify their compact Breeze stroller to offer a swiveling front wheel, and now the wait is over. The Swift is basically ... Read More »

Sneak Peek at the Phil & Teds Dash

Today we had a visit from a couple of representatives from Regal-Lager, the US distributor of Phil & Teds, as well as the new US representative for Phil & Teds, who works directly for the New Zealand outfit.

Good Vibe?

I spent a few hours today at the Boston Baby Faire, and I finally had a chance to play with the Vibe and formulate a concrete opinion about it. Here are my thoughts. There is no such thing as a perfect stroller; this is a universal truth. Parents are always making choices and sacrificing certain features in favor of others ... Read More »

Phil & Teds Vibe arrives, but…

We received our first shipment of the Phil & Teds Vibe stroller. After being somewhat less than thrilled with the prototype we saw in Las Vegas, we ordered just a very small number to try. We do have floor models in all three stores, so if you’re curious about them, and you’re in the area, please come down and take ... Read More »

New York Magazine’s Stroller Testdrive

Check out this great article from New York Magazine. The author took nine of the newest and hottest strollers for a testdrive. Aside from the Fisher Price and the Perego Skate, we sell all the other strollers she tested, and I think she did a really good job of evaluating them. It’s a very even-handed and accurate assessment. Enjoy! Read More »

Newest dates for Phil & Teds strollers

According to an update I received this morning: The Classic buggy will be available 2/15/08. The Dash and the Vibe will be available 3/15/08. My local sales rep apparently had a preview of the strollers, but I haven’t had a chance to hear about it yet. Regal Lager and Phil & Teds are keeping things very hush-hush. I know a ... Read More »
