The Ultimate Maclaren: Now Available

Maclaren just keeps raising the bar on luxury. First, they introduced a series of designer Quest strollers, with fabrics by Kate Spade, Lulu Guiness and that most British of plaids, Burberry. Now, they are shipping the brand new CF6506, a stroller so high-tech and luxe that it’s apparently too cool for a normal name. The CF6506 is based on the ... Read More »

Giddy-up, Saddlebags

I’m sure everyone is very tired of listening to me extoll the virtues of the folks at Skip Hop. But they’ve done it again. They’ve designed another elegant storage solution for stroller-pushing parents that is destined for greatness. The new Saddlebag is just what it sounds like – a saddlebag for a stroller. Using a clever, patent-pending velcro strap system, ... Read More »

Hey, we’re (almost) famous!

Check out the new issue of US Weekly, with Tori Spelling on the cover, and you’ll find a great spread on page 82 about celebrity strollers. We’re very excited to be listed as sources for both the Orbit Infant System and the new Silver Cross Micro v2. They also mention the Stokke Xplory, which apparently Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie ...

Silver Cross makes a stylish entrance

Back in May, I posted about the legendary stroller brand, Silver Cross, and their imminent return to the US market. Today I was invited to attend a very posh launch party at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston, where I had the opportunity to review the full line of strollers and speak with some of the executives from London Bridge ...

Silver Cross returns

After a sudden and unannounced withdrawal from the US market in 2005, Silver Cross is starting over. Hopefully this is good news. The new distributor, London Bridge Partners, is affiliated with Infantino, a well-run company that currently specializes in toys and some limited baby gear. They seem to have their act together, with a nice catalog and a well-organized product ... Read More »

Orbit almost landing…

We had a chance to check in with our friends at Orbit Baby today and play with the actual production samples of the Orbit Infant System. All I can say is it’s really going to be worth the wait. We’re told that we should have stock to sell by the end of June or first week of July. The final ... Read More »

Jane Powertwin Update

The Jane Powertwin is generating a frenzy of interest, so I thought I would post an update. Originally we were told to expect the Powertwin by the end of April, but now the US distributor is promising that we will have it before the end of June. From what I’ve been told, there was a problem with the fabric on ... Read More »

2006 Valco Runabout

Last week our staff had the pleasure of meeting with a gentleman from Valco who gave us a preview of their new 2006 Runabout stroller, which we have since received. While he was here, we had the opportunity to assemble the stroller, push it around, and ask a lot of questions. I was very impressed with what I saw! Valco ... Read More »

New Kate Spade Quest is here

And it’s really cute. The new Kate Spade Twilight features a very modern snail icon (there’s a joke in there, somewhere) on a quilted navy background, accented with white piping. The hood is lined with a green interior. Structurally, it’s identical to the other Quest strollers, but it feels very special. This year, Maclaren is extending the Kate Spade collection ...

Strolli – whee!

As proof that parents are eager to find ways to extend the life of their strollers and adapt them to fit a growing family, products like the Buggy Board and Kiddy Board (wheeled boards that attach to the back of a stroller) are extremely popular. As well, the Phil and Ted’s e3 (a single all-terrain stroller that offers a second ... Read More »
