When it comes to babies, there is literally SO MUCH stuff to choose from. I’m beyond overwhelmed and our measly registry (a bit premature) has duplicates of everything right now because I have no idea what to pick! Strollers included…
Originally, I was in lust with this Graco Modes Click Connect stroller in Onyx.

Purty, ain’t she?! And it all sorts of “clicky” features that allow for changing seat direction and it also folds down into a pram-like arrangement. Not to mention, it’s black and gray…duh! My favorite! But when I moseyed into Babies R Us last week, I pushed this sucker around for a minute (with infant car seat attached, mind you) not far, because it was attached to a wall, and it seemed so BIG! A tad of the heavy side also. It also does not have the option to buy with an infant car seat, unless you purchase it in a pattern I really don’t care for. But all Graco Click Connect infant car seats should work, I think, it just may not match. But with black, anything goes! I was immediately turned off, but after talking to a friend who has a similar Graco system, I’m back to it. She loves hers and said it’s a great system. I need to give it another look.
The second one I loved, was this Britax B-Agile stroller in Red (another favorite color!). I pushed this one around the store too (it wasn’t attached so I could go farther), and let me tell you, this baby corners like it’s on rails (Vivian would approve!). The three-wheel design is awesome. And it’s much smaller and more lightweight. The cons? It doesn’t have a very big cargo basket and it’s lacking cup holders, which I could end up hating! But other than that, it’s amazing. And also has the option to buy with a matching infant car seat.

My third choice, which I’ve never seen in person, is the Peg Perego Pliko Four Stroller in Pois Grey, which also comes as a travel system. They didn’t have it in the store when I was there, so I know nothing about shape/size, except that Peg Perego, like Graco and Britax, is a reputable brand. And it’s gray dots, so you know I’m in! But it’s probably a good thing that I haven’t seen it in person, because this sucker is the most expensive! The matching infant car seat is sold separately and the entire system comes in at around $600!! Based on that, it’s probably not really a contender.

And speaking of expensive, this probably means the Bugaboo is out too…where’s the lotto winnings when you need them?
Any opinions, suggestions, other brands/models to look at…throw them at me! James says to pick what I like, but being that we’re both artists and both fairly vain, I’m sure he’ll have an opinion once I pick one out 😉
