Why not call it the e4?

Finally, the much anticipated new model of the popular Phil & Ted’s e3 stroller is en route. But it’s not called the e3 anymore. Now, it’s called the Sport. There are some nice new features to this model, but it still looks quite a bit like its predecessor. The handlebar is adjustable via a pushbutton racheting mechanism, and has a ... Read More »

A BOB I’d like to meet.

The new 2007 BOB Revolution strollers have been very popular. We’re having a hard time keeping up with demand. The most significant new feature is an extra 25 degrees of recline, which is a nice improvement. The stroller is recommended for 8 weeks and up, though it can be used with a newborn in conjunction with the optional infant car ... Read More »

2007 Mountain Buggies are here

The 2007 Mountain Buggies have arrived. The big story is color, and not much else. There are a couple of minor improvements, most significantly double-backed fabric to reduce wear and tear. But the most substantial change is the introduction of a limited edition series, a designer series, and the upgraded Urban Elite series. For the Limited Edition series, there are ... Read More »

Mutsy Double Seat Delayed

According to the US distributor for Mutsy, the arrival of their much-anticipated double seat has been delayed. This seat, which is currently available in Europe, offers two reclining stroller seats on a single frame. It’s no wonder people are excited about it, but due to variances in safety standards between Europe and the US, the folks at Mutsy will need ... Read More »

It’s Raining It’s Pouring.

Here’s hoping everyone had a wonderful holiday season! For my family here in Jerusalem, Chanukah was celebrated in a city glowing with candles. Menorahs were kindled everywhere. Inside and outside, through windows and in courtyards, the nights were alight. And as the eighth-day of light came to a close, and as the last candle burned out, that’s when “they” came. ...

To Market, To Market

You won’t find many strollers in the open markets on busy days. The throngs of people keep the majority away. The indignant looks tossed toward buggy lugging mothers (the nerve, taking up precious extra space) leave only the strong of heart or the petite of stroller. We jump in. The Micralite, soundly maneuvered by yours truly, braves the throngs and ... Read More »

Tight Spaces

When I’m walking and in a rush, I jay-walk. I cross on red, cut through private property, and take the stairs. Nothing personal, but I’ll run over your miniature poodle if he’s in my path. Now here’s the challenge. In Jerusalem, and particularly in my neighborhood, parking is a major issue. There’s simply no space. Lack of space however, does ... Read More »

The Little Stroller that Could

We are living in one of the first neighborhoods in Jerusalem built outside of the Old City walls. The streets are a labyrinth of stone and stairs. Narrow lanes force pedestrians to hug the walls as cars pass. Jagged walkways lead from one to the other in surprising turns and steps. The Micralite is handling like a local. The back ...

The Tipping Point

So, the Micralite at the airport. A great feature? The stroller is free standing when folded. This is a huge plus when you’d prefer not to lay the stroller down on a filthy floor or sidewalk. Security was a breeze. The Micralite folds clean, almost to the dimensions of an umbrella stroller. To fold, you simply push down a lever ... Read More »

At First Sight

Do you remember how it was at the beginning? You were struck by their looks, or perhaps their charm. You thought to yourself, Now here’s something interesting. And then, face to face, the charm and beauty feel quirky. And you’re left uncertain. Perhaps you fell too quickly? (It’s happened before.) Or perhaps you’re just nervous at the prospect of something ... Read More »
