Summary: The Stokke® Xplory® has broken the barrier for standard stroller types which focus solely on child comfort, but instead focuses more on the parent - child interaction as the main feature. That’s where the multiple seat height and multiple handlebar height applies. This elevates and brings the child closer to parent to increase both way interactions. Additional to that, it also reduces back pain too!
Pros: Higher seat positioning enables effective parent-child interaction, Acts as a high-chair when dining, High seat back and adjustable footrest length allows child up to 110cm (43.3 inches) tall to still be comfortable in it., Easy seat recline mechanism, Easy seat height adjustable mechanism, Multiple harness handling, Easy handle height and angle adjust mechanism, Ergonomic oval shaped bar handle gives no restriction in handling, Large and easy access to storage basket...
Cons: Slightly difficult to change seat from facing forward to reverse and vice versa, Small castor angle for front wheels making it slightly difficult to maneuver, Wheel brake difficult to use when stroller in 2-wheel mode, Non lockable front wheels, Non compact 2-piece fold, Seat wobbles when at highest position, Seat wobbles when heavy item hung on the handle, No cupholder, Expensive accessories
Summary: The Xplory offers a stylish, practical and comfortable option for both parent and child. The manoeuvrability is second to none. Storage is generous and hood coverage is more then adequate. The stand out feature is the adjustable seat height. The ability to interact with your child at your level is lovely and it allows your child a better interaction with the world because they really are up at adult level, not just looking at the knees of passers by.
Pros: Height adjustable seat lets children sit at adult level, Generous storage bag under seat, Excellent hood with mesh insert and generous coverage, Fantastic manoeuvrability
Cons: Seat fabrics are time consuming to remove, Harness height adjustment could be easier, Bulky when folded
