Easy or not, here it comes

When the Easy Walker stroller debuted at the JPMA show last May, we had a mixed reaction from our team. There were some great features, and the design was sleek and minimalist, but it was only available as a package bundled with the carrycot, and it was quite expensive. We weren’t sure how the US market would react. The strollers ... Read More »

Valco strollers on sale

Valco is usually one of the last stroller manufacturers to receive their next model year inventory, so when all the other sales have come and gone, Valco is just getting started. The 2006 Runabout models aren’t expected until the end of April or later, so we’ve been able to negotiate some nice deals with our good friends at Valco, including ... Read More »

Riding in style

The 2006 Bumbleride collection is out, and these are some very pretty strollers. The fabrics are so sophisticated they seem almost ahead of their time. But not quite. The new and improved Flyer is the most eagerly anticipated of the ’06 lineup, and demand is so high that availability will be somewhat limited for the next few months. The team ... Read More »

It’s smart, but is it a buggy?

Check out the new Smart Buggy from Phil and Ted’s, and you’ll discover a sort of cross between a stroller and hand truck. We spent a good amount of time puzzling over one on Friday, and IMHO this is a very innovative concept, but it may still need to work out some kinks before it’s a true success. The good: ...

2006 Mountain Buggy line is here

We’ve received our first shipment of 2006 Mountain Buggy strollers. We have Urban singles and doubles, and I believe all colors are in stock, at least for the moment. They look beautiful, and the improvements are really nice. Read More »

New Phil and Ted’s colors are in

Although the Phil and Ted’s e3 doesn’t have any real design changes for 2006, they are offering four new colors, available immediately. There’s orange, black, sand and lime green. If our website is showing these are out of stock, it’s just that we haven’t finished receiving them – I have seen them and I know they are physically here. If ... Read More »

2006 Mountain Buggy Colors

We’re holding our breath waiting for our first shipment of 2006 Mountain Buggy strollers, due this week (we hope). Today, we received images of the whole 2006 lineup, which are already in place on our website. Follow this link to check them out. I’m particularly excited about the new Cabana color. I don’t think the photos do it justice. Those ... Read More »

The Powertwin is Coming

The Jane Powertwin enjoys somewhat legendary status here in the US. Widely thought to be the best double stroller that isn’t yet available on this side of the ocean, stroller afficionados speak in reverant whispers of the Powertwin’s narrow footprint, smooth handling and two full-size reclining seats. We’d heard much about the Powertwin, so we were eager to sell it ... Read More »

Mountain Buggy update

The sale will begin today. Reduced prices will be on our website by this afternoon. I also got pricing for the 2006 Urban Single ($429) and Urban Double ($659). Right now, we are well stocked with all colors, except red singles. Read More »

Too much of a good thing= very good deals

2005 was a very good year for Mountain Buggy. In spite of a minor recall, we’ve seen the popularity of these all-terrain strollers soar. The success is well-deserved. The strollers are sturdy, well-constructed and phenomenally smooth to handle. In an effort to meet the incredible demand, Mountain Buggy ended the year slightly overstocked. Better than the alternative, for sure, and ... Read More »
