The State of the Stroller: Never before has there been so many stroller options, it can be a little overwhelming to say the least! Every mom (and dad) has spent hours researching and reading every stroller review online. They dedicate entire weekends to shop for one and feel comfortable stoping perfect strangers to ask them what stroller they are pushing and why? This has become a monumental decision and one that will be with you for years.
The Options: Style, Color, Cost, Value, Durability, Weight, Handleability, Attachments and Special Features…which is easier shopping for a stroller…or a new car?!? To help you answer some of your questions my good friends over at The State of the Mom , a new video site for the modern mom, created a hilarious but very informative video to help you get a better handle on the stroller situation.
The State of the Mom correspondent, Jessica Bern, went to the world-famous, celebrity baby hot spot, Juvenile Shop located on Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks, Calif. and spoke with Roger Hicks, the go-to stroller guy! This is a MUST SEE video for anyone who has ever shopped for a stroller!
In honor of “All about the Bump Month” —
Savvy Sassy Moms, The State of the Mom and the Juvenile Shop have all joined forces to give you a serious head start in your stroller search. Out of all the many strollers available for moms, we have chosen TWO strollers to highlight in the next two weeks.
This week we present to you our “Savvy” stroller choice and next week we will reveal our “Sassy” pick!
The “Savvy” Choice is …. The Graco Metrolite and here’s why:
The Graco Metrolite is for the discerning mom who cares about both function and affordability. The Graco Metrolite retails for $169.99 and is built to last. It has every essential feature you need for your newborn to toddler and even beyond. It weighs just less than 20 lbs. but is a full-featured stroller with an adjustable handle for a comfortable stroll, a padded multi-position reclining seat, a spacious drop-down storage basket and two of the most essential stroller details – a snack tray for child and a 2-cup holder for the parents. We’re not quite sure how any practical parent could survive without a place for those toddler fishy crackers and a space for a Diet Coke or bottled water for mom!
The Juvenile Shop’s stroller expert, Roger Hicks, says Graco is a “tried and true” brand and names the Graco Metrolite the Best Carseat Combo option. This stroller accepts all Graco infant car seats which is definitely the way to go with a new baby. Practical moms love that when baby falls asleep in the car you can just remove the entire infant car seat, snap it into your Graco Metrolite and continue about your business. A Savvy Tip for new moms? Never wake up a sleeping baby!
