Emmawho?

At the Emmaljunga booth, we discovered that even this venerable pram manufacturer has jumped onto the hybrid bandwagon, with a chassis that features the asymmetrical wheel configuration. It has quite a nice feel, actually. I’ve never seen a new Emmaljunga, since they are no longer available in the US, but I’ve heard that they’re very smooth and easy to push. ... Read More »

Hauck: the sound of music

Upon arriving at the show, our first stop was the Hauck booth. We were drawn in partly by the shiny rows of strollers, partly by the long entryway into the booth that was lined with cartons of gleaming green apples and partly by the amazing bar that took up about half of their exhibit space. It was pretty sweet. Oh, ... Read More »

Smaller, Lighter, Micralite

In the emerging hybrid category, no stroller has been able to offer the versatility and handling typical of the hybrids while still keeping the weight down under 17 lbs. Now, the arrival of the Micralite will change that. The Micralite is a popular stroller brand in the UK, and now it is going to be distributed here by Eurobaby. It’s ... Read More »

A new breed of stroller

Strollers have been the big story at the ABC Show, where we’ve seen an amazing array of new and interesting concepts, many of them populating a new category of strollers, which I’ll call the Hybrid (you heard it here first, folks). These hybrid strollers are a cross between an all-terrain stroller and a city stroller. Riding unabashedly on the coattails ... Read More »

A Techno for all seasons

Maclaren is introducing the new Techno XLR model stroller. This is the ultimate Techno – all the best features of the Maclaren flagship model, AND it takes many infant car seat models, too. It’s crazy late and I’m falling asleep as I type. Plus, the pictures I took of the XLR didn’t come out too well. I will give more ... Read More »

Orbit update

I had a chance to stop by the Orbit booth and check out the newest product developments from their team. As usual, I was impressed. They showed a fantastic stroller seat that fits onto the Orbit frame. It’s a roomy, fully-featured seat with a generous hood and a very plush, comfortable seat. The stroller has a reversible seat pad; one ... Read More »

Yummy Danish!

Two popular and sought-after Dutch stroller brands will both be making their American debut in the coming months. The Mutsy is a line of high-end strollers with several parent-friendly features. The 4Rider looks a bit like the bugaboo. It includes a stroller seat and a bassinet, and the handling is quite nice. There are two versions, one more lightweight with ... Read More »

Here comes Stokke

I just received a newsletter from Stokke with a sneak preview of their new products to be introduced at the ABC show. With their permission, I am sharing the highlights with you here. The Xplory We’ve asked for it. You’ve asked for it. And now, they’ve delivered. Car seat adaptors are now available for the Xplory, one for Graco and ... Read More »

Fender Senders

The Phil and Ted’s e3 has been explosively popular over the past few months. Parents love how the nimble single stroller can be reconfigured to carry two children. But in the two-toddler position, one child sits close to the ground and, therefore, close to the wheels. As expected, many curious hands got very grimy. There was a small outcry, but ... Read More »

The Orbit is in the ‘house

Our first full shipment of Orbit Infant Systems arrived today, so we are now officially in stock and ready to ship, in both black and mocha. Both colors look beautiful, and we hear that Brooke Shields had such a hard time choosing that she ended up getting both. Read More »
