    In the garage... I've given away about 4 more.

    I have a MBUJD with carrycot, BJCMD, Mac Twin Techno and an old Twin Traveler.
    Two or three cheap umbrellas, a Maclaren Starck, CCO Flash, Chicco C1 with carrycot (never sold in US), Easywalker Qtro with carrycot.

    Oh and Buggypod on the way! And somewhere a set of umbrella stroller connectors for emergency use when we had the Corolla.

    Looking at getting a Callisto and Urbo and probably an Easywalker Duo and maybe a Valco Twin Spark in three next few years. All with carrycots (except the Twin Spark which doesn't need them.) And probably several more, because they're like crack. Lol.

    I have an Urbo that I love (pushes with a finger), but don't use much. It's black with a grey liner though and I don't have a carrycot. I've been thinking about replacing it with BJCM GT (based on reputation) for the easy fold and larger capacity. I haven't used the GT before, so any thoughts on that switch? We only keep one stroller at a time and need to have it in the car as DS3 could break something and we'd need it at any moment.

    The GT, will last longer by height for sure but the fold won't be as compact. How small of a fold do you need?

    I have my eye on a silver Duo on ebay with two carrycots for about the same price.

    Hmm, I didn't realize the fold was bigger. If it's that much wider (looked up at 3.5" wider), I'm not sure it will fit sideways behind the back seat of the Sienna. Oh well. I just used the Urbo again today and while it's certainly not all terrain, DS3 is really nowhere near outgrowing it and I love the flip up leg support for his heavyweight AFO legs. Hadn't thought about that on the GT or realized that the GT was so much heavier overall. I think the next step for us will probably just be an ultralight wheelchair.

    Hope you love your Urbo!

    They just got back to me- no plans to bring colored carrycots to the US. Poop! Australia or Canada or the UK it will have to be for the carrycot.

    If you ever need it, I've got a medical stroller with GREAT leg support that my husband has been bugging me to get rid of.

    Well, now this rep is frustrating me. He claims that these colors are only in the UK and Australia/Canada don't have them either. Um, YES THEY DO, I'M LOOKING AT THEM. I sent him a link to Babies R Us Canada. Because seriously?

    It read like he was copying a script for the most part and was flummoxed when I asked something it didn't cover.

    In case you have decided to buy two strollers, I thought I would pass this along! It's purple!

    Sadly, not buying anything, yet. But I'll have to check ebay when I'm ready.

    If I could buy anything I'd be looking at importing an Easywalker June...it has pretty much everything I want in a compact stroller.

    The June is nice looking but so expensive to get here; I think I'd be happy with the Urbo at 1/3 the price...

    The June is very hard to fold, cumbersome to switch the seat and pushes horribly when RF. I'm waiting for June 2.0.

    The ease of clicking the seat different ways or putting in car seat adaptors or carrycot definitely is a great feature on the Urbo!

    It turns out I never did have the stroller problem DH accused me of back in the day. For sure not compared to you guys! There was no Internet then so that may have limited me, not just my pocketbook

    KQ - you mentioned in some other thread I needed a carry cot. Can you ( or others) elaborate on the kind of use they see?

    Re: So are there any great strollers I haven't tried out there? The Dream Stroller Hunt: Part 2

    On what they are used for?

    Basically, for the same reason we don't recommend newborns spend a lot of time in the car seat or bouncy seat they shouldn't be in an inclined stroller if possible, or sleep in them-desat risk. Lying flat is safer. A carrycot allows them to fall asleep in the stroller and be moved elsewhere in the house, or can be used like a Moses basket in the house and then put on the stroller to go out for a walk. It's enclosed on all sides which many newborns find comforting and secure compared to the open seat of most strollers. A swaddled baby can be tucked in, no need to unswaddle to buckle. It can be used as a safe place to lay baby in a restaurant rather than bringing in a bucket (babywearing is great but sometimes you wish to eat unencumbered.) Etc.

    Katie Sue learned to fall asleep on our walks and the carrycot quickly became a place she could nap at grandma's as a result.

    Yes, for sure I can see it's usefulness in that regard for a couple of months. At approximately what age do you find it to be outgrown, not just size wise, but developmentally - like when you're walking them, about when do they want to see and start to complain - if you know what I mean!
