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 have UBV as my primary stroller. I am looking for a second stroller to keep in the car for quick shopping trips. I don't want to spend more than $200.
Criteria: Decent Basket, Large Canopy/Sun Shade, Sleek Design, Reclines, Easy Fold, Easy Push, Light

I have the maclaren techno xlr which i got on sale for under $200, actually under $100 but it was a crazy sale. Look at the techno its cheaper and its a great stroller. I would not suggest the maclaren volo since it doesnt recline at all.

I got the G-luxe through one of the amex promos last year. I've been very happy with it so far.

Last night we tried out my sister in laws UBV, wheeling it outside on sidwalk street and on grass. It wheels like a dream can't compare anything to it. But wife doesn't think she can get used to the height of the handlebar and its just not comfy for her to push.
If there would be a way to make the handlebar a inch or 2 lower....

Buy it from Bed bath via a registry. I can all but guarantee she'll get used to it, but if she doesn't just return it at any time.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

How's that work? I can order something off my own registry? Register in bedbath or buybuy ? In store or online? Coupons?
What's the return policy?

Thanks Dan, I'm assuming that the 20% coupon that comes for signing up for the emails works for this, correct?

Is she looking for a doll stroller?   ;)
:D:D right after trying the UBV I pushed an umbrella stroller..that really felt like a doll stroller
