Spring is nearly here (and for some parts of the country, it already is!) and that means new strollers are on their way to the stores. This month showcases three brand-new arrivals available between now and April. Keep your eyes out!
Mamas and Papas Armadillo Flip XT
The new Mamas and Papas Armadillo Flip XT is just like the traditional Armadillo Flip, but with a few upgraded features. The canopy is bigger and, like the previous version, it has a peek-a-boo window with magnetic closure, which I’ve always loved.
Another new feature is an elegant faux-leather telescoping handlebar which adjusts to the right height for comfortable strolling. The basket underneath the seat is larger on the XT, plus the wheels are a bit sturdier to take you over urban terrain.
Like the Armadillo Flip, the new XT version has a revering seat. The two-step standing fold can be done one-handed and is quite flat and compact. This new stroller weighs 22 pounds and will be available in March for $599.
Baby Jogger Vue Lite
Baby Jogger impressed us last year with the first reversing seat umbrella stroller called the Vue. Now they are set to bowl us over with an even better product, the Vue Lite. The main thing that has changed is the weight. The Vue Lite has trimmed three pounds and now weighs only 14 pounds.
It has a bit less padding in the seat and different access to the basket, however it has the same umbrella fold and reversing seat. The Vue Lite accommodates infant car seats, as seen in the photo, but the car seats are sold separately.
The Vue Lite comes out in March 2015 with five vibrant colors and has an expected retail price of $179.
The last of the new Spring 2015 strollers is pure luxury with a reversing seat, telescoping faux-leather handlebar and bumper bar, with seven stunning color combinations to choose from.
Customize your Priam by choosing the kind of seat or bassinet you want. Cybex has two infant car seats that click right onto the chassis. Then, there’s either a Lux Seat or 2-in-1 Light Seat for your toddler.
Personalize further and choose from three different wheel options: Light for city, Trekking with a larger front wheel for light trail walking, or All-Terrain with thicker rear wheels. There’s even an option to install skis on the front wheels for those of you who are snow-bound in winter!
The frame is $800 and the seat you choose is about $400. Expect the Cybex Priam to be available in April 2015.
