    The Kolcraft Aria, lol...

    I was bummed to not find the wagon I wanted in stock at TRU, so had to ease my pain by looking at strollers and carseats (the Alpha Sport is NICE!). They had a lavender el cheapo umbrella stroller with a hood I almost couldn't resist (I do loves me purple....), but I was most intrigued by this little beauty

    It was almost as easy to do the same fold as my $200 Aria, but it doesn't lock itself or take an infant seat....but man, for that price, who cares? I didn't kick the wheels... If it hadn't been in the dorkiest giraffe print (I LIKE giraffes, but this was Dorky!) I might have been tempted for a travel stroller....

    Anyway, just had to share

    I think that is a great stroller. It doesn't feel as plasticky as the Baby Trend Trendsport my friend has. Kmart has it in a black pattern that is not as strange as the giraffe. It folds much nicer than the Trend Sport, too!

    We've had this one too.

    Of course, we found ours at someones curb.

    So, I didn't really care about all the other stuff. Yay, free stroller.

    I sold it for $10.00, too.

    You're sure you didn't have the Lite Sport? I used to have one of those and LOVED it! But I thought this was new, this whole 'stand alone' feature. Or I'm totally out of the loop...which isn't a bad thing to say about cheap strollers...is it? (lol)

    Our Aria IS our travel stroller

    I picked ours up in the fall of 2002 at Value City in a blow out sale.. a 2001 model (w/o the ability to carry an infant seat) for only $49!

    We have a Peg Milano as well which we use around the neighborhood (I actually had to talk my aunt DOWN from a Bertini Pram which wouldn't have worked for us as our only stroller!)... but the Aria is our mall and travel stroller.
