Excerpt: The new Stokke Xplory of 2010 promises the same features parents loved about the original , but some additions that make the whole experience for your baby even better. However, it’s not the easiest buggy to fold and that price tag certainly puts it out of reach for many parents. The Xplory is made by Stokke, a Scandinavian company with the philosophy that its products grow with your child and that they are centred on strengthening the bond between parent and child.
Pros: Brilliant adjustable seat depth cushion, adjustable seat height, swivel wheels for super simple steering, reversible seat
Conclusion: Magnificent modern design in motion: a really clever buggy that offers comfort (for both baby and parent) and functionality. However, it’s not compact when folded and the price is on the eye-watering side.
Pros: Extremely versatile and adjustable, a modern buggy with much to offer, Talking to your baby is so much easier when he’s up at your level – and it’s the perfect position for sitting at a café table. The level of adjustability and functionality is impressive – it may lack cup holders, but I can’t think of anything missing that I’d actually use. Its distinctive look and choice of colours is also great: this is a real head-turner and conversation starter.
Cons: An expensive choice, and it doesn't fold down small, so not ideal for small cars or flat-dwellers, The biggest problem with the Xplory comes when it’s folded down, as it’s not that compact, and if your boot is on the small side you may need to disassemble it more than is convenient for everyday use. The price will undoubtedly put some people off, as it’s not cheap, but it is built to last more than one child.
Excerpt: The Xplory’s seat sits high, so you’re closer to your child, plus it doubles at a highchair
Pros: Moves easily over smooth and rough terrain, Easy to push and maneuver through an obstacle course of twists and turns, Brakes are fairly easy to lock and unlock, The front wheels can be folded, which makes the stroller easy to carry up and down stairs, Baby harness is fairly simple to use
Cons: The stroller doesn’t fold—the seat comes off and the handles fold down, Not much storage space, May be difficult to recline the seat, Difficult to carry when folded, Not very easy to push over uneven terrain
