Mutsy Slider

The Mutsy strollers have been very well received during their first year in the US. We’ve had good success with the 4-Rider model, a hybrid with four pneumatic tires (two large in the rear, two smaller in the front). The front air-filled tires make this stroller unusual and give it a very smooth ride. They also make the frame a ... Read More »

Phil & Ted & Ted & Ted & Ted

I know how many of you are waiting for an update on the Phil & Teds situation, so I made sure to hit that booth today to get the details. I have no photos to share – they were incredibly vigilant about that. What I found was a bit strange. I’m not sure I understand the logic, but I’ll present ... Read More »

Will it fit?

Cheers to Lascal, makers of the Buggy Board (the ingenious wheeled board that attaches to a stroller to make room for a standing passenger) for putting together an exhaustive study of how the Buggy Board fits just about any stroller in existence. Check out their amazing website which shows exactly how to attach the Buggy Board to each model, and ... Read More »

Daytrippin’ with Maclaren

Today, I spent the day visiting the US headquarters of Maclaren in Norwalk, CT. We were invited for a sneak preview of the 2008 product line, which will be shown at the ABC Show next month in Las Vegas. It was a great opportunity to see the new products away from the hullabaloo of the trade show, and it was ... Read More »

Zapps are here!

Our first shipment of Quinny Zapp strollers just arrived. We’ve got one in our office, and we’re playing with it extensively today. Initial impressions are very good – it folds down nearly to the size of an umbrella, and it handles really beautifully, even with the modified design (two wheels in front versus one). Downsides include the teeny tiny basket, ... Read More »

Quinny Newsflash

Good news and bad news. The good news is that Dorel has made some nice improvements to the US version of the Zapp. They’ve adjusted some of the functional design and they’ve added (drumroll, please) a storage basket. The bad news is they’ve decided to increase the retail price to $239.99. From what I can understand, the price increase will ... Read More »

White Volo is here

The newest Volo color has arrived, the chic white model that we saw at the JPMA show. Unwilling to gamble much on this unusual color combination, we ordered just a few, so they are only available in the store right now. The white stroller comes with a black seat pad and a black canopy. It’s very cool, if you’re into ... Read More »

Half pipes with half pints?

I was at the ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) yesterday in NYC. As always, it’s such a cool show. But there was a prototype on display that was just radical. The Roller Buggy, designed by Austrian Valentin Vodev, is part skateboard, part stroller. Just pull out the board from under the chassis and it becomes a scooter.  Fun for parents, ... Read More »

Quinny is in the house!

Our shipment of Quinny Buzz and Dreami (the matching bassinet) arrived today. We already have a floor sample in the store, so come by and check it out. All four colors are in stock and ready to ship. I know a lot of folks were wondering if these would ever really arrive, but now it looks like we’re in business. Read More »

Quinny update

I just received a revised availability timeline from Quinny, and since I know a lot of people are watching this, I thought I’d share it right away. The Buzz and Dreami (the bassinet for the Buzz) are on time to arrive in the US on May 10. I expect we’ll have them in our store within a week after that. ... Read More »
