Quoting KeriM:" I had the typical "graco travel system" in the beginning with my first... and then and Evenflo travel ... [snip!] ... stroller but it was really two! :) But any recommendations for a double jogger would be awesome! Even if it's side-by-side! "


BOB Revolution Duallie is probably thee best double jogger out there. But, Baby Jogger is another great brand and I like their finishings better! Are you actually going to be jogging or just lots of walking & rough terrain...if you aren't jogging the Bumbleride Indie Twin or Phil & Ted are good options too.

See, ours doesn't rattle ( thank god ! ) My only concern with having it for a few weeks now, is when I go to push the fold part by the basket one of the sides ALWAYS gets stuck and you have to jiggle it..

I'm gonna sell it with the hot pink canopy. I seriously bought the Bee All Black on a whim Friday [then we went out of town for the weekend]. But, I've wanted one FOREVER...and then when I saw Bugaboo's post about their new limited edition Andy Warhol prints and I just kept thinking how amazing the 'flowers' would look on an a black Bee...

Do you lock the wheels first? I noticed I had to lock the wheels and then step on it perfectly in the middle to avoid that happening, eventually you'll get the hang of it and it won't stick.



My wheels never rattled either, but they were loud as HELL on anything that wasn't smooth...kinda like a weird 'sticking' sound. But, I have heard the rattle...I think Irish recorded it on hers!

Hello ladies!
I am glad you are all doing great! I haven't been here forever and, fortunately, now, I am finally in the market for a new stroller. The only stroller I did not have the fist time around was Stokke so I think I am going to go for it. It appears that they have two more models of it now... Do you suggest to get the original one? Or do you think the other models are better?
I have found a pretty good price on the original one in light green. It is 1,007 for the stroller + bassinet + footmuff. I am so tempted to get it but I wanted to hear your opinions first. :-) Thanks much!

For the Stokke's, definitely get the Xplory. But, I would hold out for the *new* Bugaboo Buffalo. It seems to solve all the minor Cameleon complaints and I really like the canopy on it!!!



Ps. Congrats. When are you due!?

Thank you! I just found out a few days ago.. I am at the end of 4th week so this is the very beginning. Yet it doesn't stop me from shopping for a stroller. I can't pick out the room colors yet so I will focus on the strollers. :-)




BTW, I have picked briefly at your blog and your kids are absolutely beautiful!




Then Xplory that is. I don't think I would want to buy another version of Chameleon. I am probably in the minority here but I liked Bugaboo Bee better than my Chameleon. I do want Stokke, though, for the sole reason of baby bassinet and baby seat height. Not having to bend down to the kid makes a huge difference to me.

Oh man, our blog is so outdated...lol I think I'm about a year behind! Doh. But, thanks! :]



And you are not in the minority, I LOOOOOOVE the Bee+! The Bee, a Mico and a wheeled board...awesome combo.



How's Daniel!? I bet he's gotten soooo big.

I caved and decided to just buy a whole new snack tray! It's so stupid...all I needed was a little adapter piece. This is with the seat rear facing...it's perfect [either direction]!
