Topic Wiki

I am trying to put a list together of the pro's and cons of the main bassinet strollers:

UppaBaby (UB)
PRO:
so easy to push
great basket (HUGE)
the bassinet is easy to take on and off
the wheels are easy to remove if need be
folds in a sinch
handle bar is great for tall and short people
the rumble seat lets the kid sit like a human being (not slide down)
the break is easy to push and doesnt break easily
the lay back position is great for kids who need to sleep on the go
the sun visor is a life savor
option to use with car seat (need to purchase the adapter)
fantastic customer service

con:
its wide but still easy to push
it can be heavy for some
the lock to close the stroller (it broke on mine)

JFK TSA STROLLER ALERT: tsa sent my sister back to check in because her stroller was too big/heavy!
Take a mclaren umbrella stroller or similar when flying- not worth risking carrying the baby for a mile trek @ jfk!!
I also HIGHLY recommend the magnolia line reversible stroller liners! The designs are stunning and they come out like new after every wash!

what about the bob is that any good for a newborn?

i live in israel, what would be some choices, in a decent price range?
is it worth it to get a bug or a UB or just settle for a cheaper version?

I have a bug and a UB (both free, duh), the UB is far superior and well worth the money.

My brother was determined to find a cheaper alternative and went through quite a few different strollers before finally buckling down and getting the UB and agreeing that it's the best all-around stroller around.

What else has he (or you) tested?

Dunno I'd have to ask him.

But if you want to test an UB out get it from BB&B, their lifetime return policy simply can't be beat and they will match online prices (plus give you 20% off with a coupon-YMMV).
And free shipping if it's on your registry.

They ran sales during Q4 last year due to the 2012 model coming out.
I don't know if there will be a 2013 model.

I got from Bug for free thanks to AMEX and the UB with Zulily credits when they had it for under $400 last year.
