    Baby Planet stollers

    These are nice strollers, high price though. But has a nice look and high weight limit.

    Re: Baby Planet stollers

    Nah I don't have one, I like the orange one. You could still use one for your 3 yr old, I was never a fan of using a stroller at that age but with Rachel it was a blessing for those long trips (like zoos) or ones where you want to take the easy way out.

    Re: Baby Planet stollers

    I wonder how easy it is to push with a bigger kid in it?

    Re: Baby Planet stollers

    The travel system is SWEET! It fits any carseat, I swear. And it locks snugly down on it.

    I dunno about how it pushes with a kiddo in it, but without, it is a breeze. I can push two at the same time, and get them easily where I want them to be.

    One thing that bugged me. Taking it apart to store? or to put in your trunk? It's a PITA. The unit folds up, the seat comes off, the handle comes off... and then you store it. Yes, that's 3 separate pieces to store.

    But man, it is cute. And, it can be recycled!!!

    ETA: Here is the travel system. I haven't seen the other line - the Endangered Species one you were talking about - to know it's quirks yet.

    I definately can't afford this but it's at BuyBuyBaby and I think I'm gonna go and try it out, my dd is only 42lbs though. Maybe I can get into some car seat convos while I'm there

    The travel system looks great... but definately out of our budget. I wish we had a cool store around here that sold them so I could try her in it. I borrowed a friend BOB jogger... Loved it.. .just can't justify the price for an almost 4 year old!

    Re: Baby Planet stollers

    Yeah, it's out of my budget, too. But compared to some other strollers, it's not so bad. Even so, I'll stick with my used Peg Perego.

    Re: Baby Planet stollers

    I just bought a new stroller (Mac Twin Techno, still waiting for it to arrive) and seriously considered the Baby Planet Unity, their double stroller.

    They are expensive, but so are the Macs. From everything I've read, they are very comparable to them as far as design and functionality goes. I think they are a bit more stylish, though The only reason I didn't get the BP stroller was because of it's unique handle and my inability to test it out in person first. So I chickened out and stuck with the Mac, since I am already familiar with it.

    I tried finding a store near me that sells BP strollers, but according to their website pretty much all local retailers are in CA. So if someone in CA can take a trip to one of these stores to check 'em out, that would be awesome!

    Re: Baby Planet stollers

    Wish I had the dough to a BP stroller! Someone just listed a Unity on my local craigslist for $245 and it would be perfect for the 2 younger boys! And it is red, my favorite color!!


    Update: Just searched for it and the stroller was gone! Knew it wouldn't last long on there....

    Re: Baby Planet stollers

    YAY!! Thanks Melissa! I really like the Unity and there is a BCF very close to me. I will have to stop by there and see if they have one on the floor! Although, I think DH would kill me if I bought another carseat or stroller in the lets say next 20 years!!! I really do like the Green Leaf Frog at Walmart, but a double is more ideal for me with all the boys.

    We have them here in Au and I just tried ds 4.5 y/o 40lbs, it was really hard to push. My graco is lot easier. They are on sale for $200.
