    experts, does this stroller exist?

    Basically, I need a stroller with reversible seat, easy fold, and that can be folded with the seat in the rear facing position. And I want the option of bassinet too. Storage is nice but I'll compromise. Ditto with weight.
    I tried the Vista in store and it does fold w the seat RF even though the manual doesnt say so. The seat part sticks out, so it's not a perfect fold, but ok enough. I also tried the Buzz and it won't fold RF cause it doesn't lock, so it will pop right back up. Anything else out there?
    I've now started putting dd in the car first pretty much everytime we stroll around cause where we live we can't really stroll. The Bugaboo is a huge pain to fold/unfold. I don't wanna take the seat out to fold anymore, but I always use it RF so it doesn't seem like a have many choices.
    What's the deal with the Icoo Targo? I can't find reviews anymore and they didn't have it at the store to try out.
    Please help!!!

    Sounds like our Quinny XLs. We bought our two in Germany but they made a US version for a few years. It is a beast of a seat. We have the bassinet and you could also add a second seat.

    Is the US version called the Quinny Buzz? That's the Quinny stroller I saw and it really wont fold RF at all. Such a shame...

    Thanks Mel, I came across this stroller on a post here when I was researching before starting my own thread. I saw a video review saying it was a bit small and had a short seat so wouldn't last big babies too long. It does seem nice and the price is good though. I tried to find parent reviews or a website with more info and list of retailers and couldn't. Do you have any links? Thanks again!

    Have you checked out the PegPerego Skate? I know it folds with the seat attached and in the rea facing position.

    I would LOVE the have either the skate or the Bug. but my hubby would KILL me. So I'm stuck with a Graco

    No, it was called the XL here also. It folds both ways.

    What about a Bumbleride flyer. I like that the handle reverses. So, you don't have to flip the seat, you just flip the handle bar. I didn't love it as much as some other strollers simply because it didn't have the inflatable tires like the bugaboo, but I still really liked it.

    I just checked it out, and it's nice but I want bigger wheels. And a bassinet!
    Argh! so hard...

    the Skate looks awesome!!! But it weighs a ton... I can't remember how much now but it's something really ridiculous. So I guess basically I have to decide between the so so half fold of the Vista when RF and the heavy weight of the Skate. What's wrong with those stroller makers? you'd think for those prices they would be PERFECT!!!

    The same thing I thought about the wheels Check out the Bumble Ride Queen B. The thing I loved about the flyer (I assume the Queen B is the same, though you can also buy a removable bassinet for the Queen B) is that the seat flattened all the way out into a bassinet making it easier to fold. I don't think you are going to find a nice structured removable bassinet that folds without having to take the seat off.

    P.S. The Queen B has nicer tires

    I will check out the Bumble Ride queen B.

    You guys really don't mind that the Skate weighs 32lbs?

    The bee would work, but it doesn't have the bassinet. It always seems like you have to give up something.

    peg perego as a new one called the p3 switch. it is sort of the frame of a pliko (but slighty larger and weighs slightly more) I really want it, but I already have 2 p3's for one child I guess I need more kids!
    It has lots of stuff to it.
