First Strollers

My First Stroller Recap

Last week I asked you to share your first stroller with me. Orbit Baby seems to be the "it" stroller in Hollywood, but the $900 price tag may be too much for your average new mom. Here are some of the ones you helped pick out for lilsugar.

  • redheadkimie used the Graco Kasbah Quattro system for $230.
  • erniew chose the Peg Perego Venezia Carriage stroller to get her started for $376.
  • Ericka loved the fabric and longevity that the STOKKE Xplory proposed. She thinks it's worth the $900.
  • To see more,


  • Drewsfan loves her $759 Mutsy Urban Rider. It gets her over curbs, tree roots and gravel with no trouble.
  • Both PRSugar and Angelica like the Bugaboo stroller systems. PRSugar opts for the Frog while Angelica chose the Cameleon.

Thanks to all of you who helped us spot strollers. Keep adding to the list and we'll keep doing updates. Check out the widget below to see some of our readers' first strollers. You might find just what you're looking for!

Just like member "Sweet Rinda", I too did too much research and eventually bought the UppaBaby VISTA. I "test drove" the most popular strollers (i.e. Bugaboo, Orbit, Musty, etc.) at BuyBuyBaby (baby superstore) and loved the UppaBaby brand as soon as I laid hands on it. It's rugged and and turns on a's a stroller system that will last for years! I especially loved the bassinet , my son slept in it the first few months of his life. I would tote him from room to room during the day, then by evening, when we were ready for bed I would snap it into the stroller base in our bedroom for the night. The best part of all, it folds with the car seat adapter or the toddler seat still attached. An added bonus is it comes with the usual "optional" accessories...a bug net and rain cover that fits both the bassinet and seat! Well worth the $600 price tag.

I posted the Duo Glider by Graco. This stroller was fantastic for my twins for almost the whole first year when they were in the bucket seats, but they were not as comfortable when they were big enough to sit in the stroller. It also had a great basket underneath, very big, easy to access. We switched to the Bob Duallie shortly after their first birthday and they are much more comfortable in that one, but Bob needs to improve on the basket design. It's way too small and really tough to access.

I did way too much research before I bought mine ( I don't think I did much else before I left work!) and ended up with the Uppa Baby Vista. It is made in Boston i think and is really great. We used the bassinet for about 4 months and in the beginning it was the only way Will would sleep. We also used it inside on one of those Moses basket rocking holders - it fit perfectly. It held up to one of the worst winters Toronto has ever had and is still going strong - i love it!!!

we bought the Eddie Bauer travel system stroller. it was about $200. I love the idea that I don't have to wake my newborn to take him in and out of the stroller, I can just remove the carset portion and put him in the car or wherever. also the fact that it holds up to a 50lb child, I am confident that it will last us a long time. the plastic is light colored and so is the fabric so it won't warm up as fast as some of the darker "collections" in the heat. it was voted most desirable stroller for new parents by babies r us.

I think I spent $60 dollars for my first stroller. The style I liked was out of stock and I was able to get the one on display.
