Mutsy is here!

We received our first shipment of Mutsy strollers today. I’ve written about the Mutsy a couple of times already, so I won’t bore you with too many details. We are carrying the 4Rider model, which is the sleekest of the Mutsy frames, with 2 large pneumatic tires in the rear and 2 small pneumatic tires in the front. It handles ... Read More »

Starck meets Maclaren

Philippe Stark is one of the most notable designers of our time, known for reinterpreting mundane objects and transforming them into striking forms that offer aesthetics without compromising (and, in fact, often enhancing) utility. Now he has taken the umbrella stroller back to the drawing board, offering a fresh take on the popular Maclaren Volo. His swooping frame is all ... Read More »

New Techno Rocks

The new Maclaren Techno XLR is here. This is probably the most anticipated new stroller of the year. Why? Because Maclaren has taken their enormously popular Techno model and turned into a travel system. This Techno comes with a car seat adaptor that is almost identical to the one on the Easy Traveler, and can accommodate a variety of infant ... Read More »

Xplory in depth

The most fascinating part of our whole journey was our excursion to the manufacturing facility that produces the Xplory stroller for Stokke. The first item on our agenda was a presentation that summarized the product development cycle for the Xplory. The stroller launched in 2003, but the project was initiated way back in 1998, when Stokke made the decision to ... Read More »

The little stroller that could

A big trend at both recent baby shows was this stroller design – it was everywhere. There were two variations, one with two handlebars and one with a single handlebar. Interestingly, the single handlebar version seems to be more maneuverable and easier to push one-handed than the two handlebar one. The seat reclines a bit, and the shape of the ... Read More »

Object of desire

This new stroller, the Joolz, caught a lot of people’s attention. It’s an interesting cross between the bugaboo and the Stokke Xplory. The visual design elements are similar to the bugaboo, but it has a higher seat and an adjustable footrest, like the Xplory. It’s very cool looking and handles nicely. The prototypes were very heavy, which the company recognizes ... Read More »

A Mountain Buggy by any other name…

One Tree Hill is the European distributor for Mountain Buggy, and their booth was hopping. And no wonder. They had a fantastic display of the 2007 designer color lineup that would stop anyone dead in their tracks. Their booth was really nice. I took a lot of pictures, and I’m feeling really good about the colors for 2007. Interestingly, the ... Read More »

In a Scottish sort of mood

Maclaren has rebranded with a tip of the (fur) hat to their Scottish roots. The new Maclaren logo is a plaid-inspired “M”, though we haven’t seen any plaid fabrics in the US lineup for 2007. And just to make sure everyone got the point, there was an impressive bagpiper who made frequent appearances at the Maclaren booth. I got a ... Read More »

Is that a term of endearment?

We just ordered the Mutsy strollers in Las Vegas, so we were curious to see what they were unveiling here. They showed off a new, brighter color palette for the Spider, as well as a completely new chassis concept which is outstanding. The handlebar is attached to the seat frame, which, like the bugaboo, can convert from a bassinet to ... Read More »

Sheri and Isaac go to Red Castle

Although we have not yet decided to carry the Red Castle strollers that will be available in the US, we were curious to check out their booth. Inside, we found some gorgeous stroller and car seat covers that will be very nice in the winter. We also met the Red Castle baby carrier, which is already selling in the US. ... Read More »
