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)

I'm not in israel at the moment. We're due very soon...
Here I'm the one that didn't want the bugaboo but I figured that she will be using it most of the time,  so I let her have it.

Must high end strollers are excluded from the coupon regardless.

And my local buy buy baby accepts coupons on high end strollers. Not without some effort but I have yet to have a problem.

You have to make friends with the manager. That always helps. I got the 2012 Uppa Baby at BuyBuy baby with 20% off around the first week or so it came out.

Also worth trying at bed bath if you get shot down.
