    Or maybe the Mutsy 4rider or the Bumblebee Queen Bee?

    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    What about a European Pram? The kind with the skinny wheels you see people running around in snowy places with?

    I specifically need to NOT have an extra seat. Lol.

    Queen B is on my list. Has it been discontinued though? I don't like the 4rider.

    The Inglesina Classica is one. I'd also take an Emmaljunga if I find a newer one used-it seems difficult to import one or I'd consider that too.

    Alright.... the Queen B is fabulous. I am like you, the size of a stroller doesn't bother me at all if it's comfortable and works for what you need. The jump seat for the Queen is cool too. The seat isn't exactly designed to use as a safe sleeping bassinet when not on the stroller, though.

    I have a recommendation for sure. If price isn't a huge concern I strongly suggest that you look at the Silver Cross Sleepover pram with the classic chassis. It is a dream... truly nicer than anything in that class this side of the pond and suits all if your needs and wants. The bassinet has an available stand for using in the house or at a friend's.

    We've had these for all of the babies in my family and they are wonderful. The workmanship and quality will be up to your standards and they are classic and beautiful to look at.

    I will be over there again soon and could get detailed pictures if you want. When are you due? Congratulations, I am really happy to see that you're expecting :-)

    We have a Mutsy with 2 bassinets and two toddler seats in my mom's garage... we only used it for Olivia's first 6 months before switching to a Pliko and BJCM. it's OK but I wouldn't buy one.

    Bugaboo Donkey? it has 4 air tires, and the mono configuration comes with the luggage basket.

    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    I tried the Donkey in-store and it was one of the worst pushes of any strollers I tried, hated it.

    I'd love pram pics! A pram is really the way I'm leaning. The bassinet/carrycot won't be used in the house (anyone's) much, more for setting baby down in restaurants etc.

    good to know about the Donkey.

    Know what's a bummer? Wayfair had the Queen B fully 50% off about a week ago. Like, actually the low price on the thumbnail, not higher when you clicked on it. I'll let you know if it shows up again.

    I should be over there by August, just trying to figure out when I can get away. If you do a Google search for that stroller there is an excellent video review with great detail by Kiddiecare.

    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    I'm not due until late September so I probably won't be buying until late August/early September at the earliest unless something really great comes along price-wise.

    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    I have no stroller advice because I just don't know all that much about what is out there. But thank you for this thread because it made me feel better about all the strollers I am planning on getting when we have another baby....I was feeling guilty but I am feeling quite normal about it now.

    Hehe yes, I'm with you here. My kids will have 18 million and I'm not going to feel bad about it!

    Dani, I've missed you... hugs and I hope you're OK :-)

    Yeah, I really like it, but that's another one I can't find anyone who carries. Where did you find a store that carries it???
    I looked at Phil and teds site for what it'd worth you can use it with their cocoon carry cot

    I saw it at a consignment store here in nc

    Did you look at the peg perego skate? Very nice push

    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    The Skate isn't all-terrain at all, imo.

    The Cocoon isn't a stand-alone carrycot, really. I'd need the Peanut to work if I got a P&T... Not that I really like the looks anyway.

    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    you've put 4 wheel strollers on my radar today.

    I just saw a tweet about the Mutsy Evo, so I had to look it up.

    http://strollerqueenreviews.blogspot...vo-review.html

    I'm guessing not, er, 'beefy' enough for you. Seat looks short, but stroller queen declares it having an awesome push, and says "Mutsy knocked it out of the park".

    It looks kind of short, but I'll have to look up more about it... Any idea if it takes a carrycot, though?

    I'm sure this is smaller than what you're looking for but I want one so am hoping someone will figure a way to get them over here easy so I can have one.

    EasyWalker June
    Accessories

    The EasyWalker Qtro should suit your needs and takes a carrycot. Also has a nice flip out UV flap from under the canopy and an available full size UV/bug net. Unfortunately there is no EasyWalker distributor in the U.S. anymore but I'm sure someone here in Canada would help you get one. (We're not getting the June here though....GRRRRR!)

    thanks- I was on my phone and it only showed the comment, nothing else. I'll check it out some more.

    Oh my gosh! I think you may have found it! The Qtro looks pretty much like... the MBUD in a single with a slightly better canopy! AAAAH! It even comes in gorgeous colors, I adore that ocean blue! Now, to figure out how much it would cost to get one to me... Any idea? I'd also want the carrycot (obviously), and probably a cupholder and rain cover.

    (Also, I wonder why the June- which does look quite nice, BTW- has a 30 kg rating while the Qtro has a 20 kg. Not that my kids would probably hit 20 kg until over 4 years, so by then I'll probably be back to using a double. But curious.)
