If you ask any mom living in NYC about their stroller…they would say “It’s like my car”. And it really is, we not only take our child from place to place but its our primary source of how we get around town. Talk about grocery shopping, doctors appointments, to and from school, playdates, using the cupholder to hold our morning coffee, hanging our purse on the handles, yeap its our car! I have to say since having kids I am obsessed with all of the new features strollers have now come out with. And I know this sounds insane but currently there are five strollers in my tiny apartment! Yeap, just wait till my husband comes home and sees the madness. But the truth is each one has a different purpose. For example, my new Snugli is now my stroller for when I need to grocery shop, the basket underneath is insanely big but I can’t use it when I’m picking up Ryder from school because I need a fold up one for the bus or train. Then there’s my double stroller for when its cold and Ryder doesn’t want to walk, you see what I mean.
So back to the Snugli. I love the sleek look with the changeable interior fabrics they offer like geometric or camo prints. A plus because you can change the look of your stroller completely. The Snugli is super lightweight and easy to steer! The seat features three positions as does the foot rest. I feel the Snugli is a great first time stroller because it is also compatiable with most car seats along with their adaptor. If I have to compare the stroller to any other on the market, I would say the Bugaboo but with better features!
I brought the Snugli Stroller along with us for two major road trips: Sesame Place and Pumpkin Picking. Siella was perfectly content in her Stroller and that rarely happens! We were able to store all of our belonging right underneath the stroller. Did I mention how big the basket was!! I can only say one downside to the stroller is the fact that when folding it in a car it doesn’t fold with the seat attached as its a two pieces in the trunk of your car. Although it doesn’t take up much room in the trunk, the folding process can be a bit of a pain.
Some features about the Snugli include:
• Sleek, durably constructed aluminum frame
• Reversible, fully adjustable stroller seating for baby
• All wheel suspension and pivoting front wheels ensure a smooth ride
