    Our new Volo arrived yesterday!

    Thanks everyone for their recommendations. I ordered our new Volo off of ebay as it was cheapest. It arrived less than 3 days later via Fedex, brand new in the box. I ordered it in 'Crimson', so it's red and black and white(ish, kind of gray). LOVE it. Ds (2.5) fits great with lots of room to spare. The basket was even bigger than I thought it would be as was the sunshade and it 'drives' like a dream. At least in the house it does, it was raining so we took a 'walk' up and down the hallway...LOL.

    For those who have mentioned that they weren't sure about the mesh...the one I bought doesn't have mesh in the area where the child's legs are...it's regular fabric. The mesh on mine starts about mid-back and feels very soft.

    Oh and I paid $72 including shipping. Not as great a deal as some but way better than the $99 plus tax I would have paid at Target.

    Can't wait to try it out! Now I just need to find one of those buggy buddy things...

    I just got ours this week too! I got mine off ebay... got the 2006 salmon pink model for $65. Probably same seller

    I love it for my 3 year old. It does ride very smooth and I love the shoulder strap on it so that she doesn't have to ride in it all the time.. just when she gets tired.

    We LOVE ours. From ebay as well. Carbon color $69. My big 41/4yo still fits in it. We take it to the zoo and I put by bag in it when he isn't tired and riding in it. Great for my tall DH to push too.

    Re: Our new Volo arrived yesterday!

    I love both of ours. One is a 2004 I bought when dd was about a year old. It is the old style that is the all mesh seat w/out the canopy. I was planning on buying a canopy for it, but never did. The other is a 2006 (or 2007) orange one. It had the cloth on the bottom mesh on top seat and canopy. Both have held up very well, even after mulitple plane trips. I do wish it wasn't tippy, but I am okay with that since it is so easy to steer and very lightweight.

    QuassEE helped me get a good priced Volo using her US PO Box. This stroller is great! I used it yesterday with my little 2 yr old friend. She immediately called it "my buggy", now how cute is that?! I got the crimson coloured one and like the mesh back, especially for hot days. It steers so well too!
