ha ha – Maybe he is just stating a factFebruary 16, 2011 10:28 pm at 10:28 pm #741419koillel101Member
We didn’t buy it, the aunts bought it as a baby gift. I was just stating a fact that it is a really great carriage.February 16, 2011 10:39 pm at 10:39 pm #741420bptParticipant
I’m not pushing a stroller these days, but whenever the time comes, I really have my eyes on those 3 wheel (or 4, but bigger in back / smaller and closer together in front) models. And it MUST have those inflatable tires, with treads like a bicycle.
If I’m gonna do the mileage, its gonna be in style and comfort!February 16, 2011 10:46 pm at 10:46 pm #741421
looking for a lightweight supplemental stroller. to use in israel for taxis and busses.February 17, 2011 12:01 am at 12:01 am #741422
Do not get one that you have to pump the tires with air! Everyone winds up losing the pump!February 17, 2011 12:06 am at 12:06 am #741423ontheballMember
The citi mini is great. Easy to push, very easy to fold, & comfortable for the baby.February 17, 2011 3:10 am at 3:10 am #741424HuviMember
got the uppababy, its a great stoller, and basket is huge! big and heavy to carry though!February 17, 2011 4:26 am at 4:26 am #741425
From what I heard the uppababy is on the same level as the bugaboo but much easier to open and close.
The citi-mini is excellent as is the larger version the Baby Jogger. It is one handed open and close so you can do it while holding the baby.February 17, 2011 4:29 am at 4:29 am #741426
yeh have the uppa baby, need a second stroller for busses and taxis
need advice!!! plseFebruary 17, 2011 5:17 am at 5:17 am #741427smartcookieMember
Mclarens are great (quest/techno). They’re not too cheap though.
People are happy with Inglesinas as travel strollers, but quality isn’t too amazing.February 17, 2011 6:14 am at 6:14 am #741428
If you need a second stroller for busses and taxis (i am assuming you don’t drive) why not just go to the store with your baby and check out what fits you best. What is the most comfortable for you to open and close while holding your baby and what is not too heavy to shlep while holding your baby. Since no one here knows you it is foolish to give advice when only you really know what will work for you. Both you and your baby have to be comfortable with the choice so it is best for you to try it out first hand.February 17, 2011 9:06 am at 9:06 am #741429PosterMember
aries2756, I HAVE THE UPPABABY. When I was getting a carriage I was debating between the Bugaboo and Uppababy. I was told they are just about the same and the Uppababy was a lot cheaper. Now that I am a bit more experienced, I can tell you the the bugaboo has a MUCH smoother ride and is fells lighter when you wheel it. It is ideal if you do not have a car and do a lot of walking.
YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET! For me it would have been worth spending more and getting the Bugaboo.
If you have a car and do less walking then city mini should do the trick.
Huvi, a big basket is nice, and I enjoy it, but It’s not the main thing. The main thing is a very smooth ride. (specially since we dont have a car and walk mostly everywhere)February 17, 2011 12:31 pm at 12:31 pm #741430
i did that. aries 2756 thanks. and narrowed it down to the Peg Si and the Inglesina trip and wanted advice on that. not whether or not Kollel couples should own bugaboos!!!February 17, 2011 3:12 pm at 3:12 pm #741431TheGoqParticipant
Heres some stroller advice dont use the roof of your stroller for a shopping cart this is an obvious sakana
when meeting a friend on the street put both of your strollers to one side i shouldnt have to walk in the mud just becuase youre chewing the fatFebruary 17, 2011 3:52 pm at 3:52 pm #741433UnderstandMember
I have the Uppababy, and am thrilled with it. It has tons of features that the bugaboo doesn’t, like the big basket, the fact that it reclines with one hand, the hood, the depth of the seat, the fact that it closes with the seat in it etc. I really did not find that the bugabo wheeled any better. I love the way the uppababy wheels and goes up and down steps. I think at this point anyone who gets the bugaboo is doing it for the name.
My.02 my baby doesnt know the difference (well not the spit up part)? I definately do and I think it is much more comfortable for a baby in a bigger carriage vs an umbrella stroller. No, I don’t think one needs to spend $1000 but I do see the need for a good (bassinet) carriage for those who walk outdoors.February 17, 2011 3:58 pm at 3:58 pm #741434SJSinNYCMember
Can I throw in another option? (not neccesarily instead of, but in addition to)
I have an Ergo Baby Carrier – best $100 I’ve spent. I wear my baby all the time. It can go back, front or side. My second was the kind of kid that didn’t want to be put down and the ergo was a lifesaver. I wore my older son when I was 9 months pregnant (on my back). I am still wearing my 17 month old and I am currently 6 months pregnant. Its also more convenient for grocery shopping, subway travel, shul and most other excursions.February 17, 2011 4:32 pm at 4:32 pm #741435PosterMember
Understand, I am not disputing that it is a good carriage, I am enjoying it. For walking Bugaboo has a very smooth ride, to me that is MOST important. It also reclines all the way, while uppababy recline is not very low when your 2 yr. old is sleeping. When I got the carriage I also said Bugaboo is just a name and I am not going to fall for it. (the sponser of my carriage didnt care about $$)
I dont believe Bugaboo is just a name brand.February 17, 2011 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #741436ramateshkolianMember
jl, I know what you are looking for, since I live where you daughter does (I know who you are, yes) anyhow, Inglesina and peg wheels are not really meant for Israeli terrain and don’t last. i would go with the city mini like your DIL! good luck!February 17, 2011 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #741437
Honestly, my DIL has a bugaboo and so do my nieces. For the life of me I can’t get it open or closed. I think you have to be an engineer to figure it out. I also could never do the McClarens so I never go those. For me the easier the better, especially if you have friends, family and babysitters helping you out.
