Stokke Xplory 2010
Find pram and stroller retailers locally and online in the Bub Hub Australian Pregnancy & Parenting Directory.
I looked at loads of different prams prior to buying my Stokke and didn't really like the look of any others as much as the Stokke.
I ended up buying it brand new online for a significantly reduced price and bought the attachments to use the Maxi Cosi Mico capsule with it.
We are totally in love with this pram! It is easy to adjust between hubby and I, and is comfortable to push both for him at 6ft1 and my mum at 5ft.
We are yet to use the todler seat but have used in with the capsule and have also used the bassinet which we received free. I would not pay for the bassinet as the capsule is more convenient and the bassinet takes up a lot of room in the boot.
The only complaint that we had was that it was as if the lubrication on the front wheels had dried up? And the front wheels would lock up and not steer properly. Hubby eventually pulled the wheels off and sprayed with cooking oil :p and it has been steering like a dream since!
Despite these problems it is still my absolute favourite pram and I LOVE the look of it :)
I absolutely love this pram! It was the second pram we bought our baby and I wish we had just got it in the first place. It is so easy to manoeuvre and fits easily down shopping aisles. What was the main selling point for me was how high the seat can be positioned and also that it can be forward or rear facing. A baby feels more secure being higher up, able to see the world and people's faces. Also no more bending over to look after your child! It is an incredibly stylish pram and I get compliments constantly. There are so many choices of colour and accessories making it very easy to personalise.
A downside though is it isn't really made for extreme outdoor use as the wheels do get a little bumpy when not on a smooth pavement. Also, it is a little bulky in the car boot.
Overall, I love this pram and do recommend it. I believe it is worth the money.
An amazing pram! Looks great, feels as light as a feather to manouver, great storage bag and fabulous accessories. Sits higher than your average pram which is great for social interaction & your back! All the settings are fluent and leavers/buttons easy once you know which ones do what! The xplory is also great to sit up to a table whithout taking up a lot of room and making you feeling concious in a cafe. The xplory & our stokke cot have been well worth the investment, you really do get what you pay for.
Cons are that it is still quite large when folded down (just as well we have a 4WD), wheels definitely not designed for gravel & the number of people coming up to you commenting & asking all about the pram(slows the shopping down! )
I would also reccommend the PramPack for xplory when travelling.
