    Great idea!

    I love the new topic! Darren, are you going to allow "swapping " of strollers or just chatting?

    Jodi, Who will soon give birth to a new reason to stroller shop!

    okay not very soon but soon enough

    Neat idea - I know absolutely NOTHING about strollers ... other than that ours sucked when Leila was tiny & I rarely get to use the cheap jogging type my parents got me I'm sure I'll be all over this board when the time comes as future dad-to-be is going to want a stoller even if I'm not "into them"

    I'm a stroller addict, and now I can't decide between the Britax Preview, Graco Mosaic, Chicco C5, Peg Aria (in pink, of course), or MacLaren Quest. LOL
    I guess I'm the exception because I've always loved my Graco strollers, but then the weight wasn't a problem for me because I was buying all-terrain strollers, which are always heavier. (Outrider, Air 6, ect.) I've yet to find an umbrella I'm happy with that we can afford though.

    I really liked the Aria for features, light weight and easy folding. The downside is that everyone who owns one seems to say it's a real clunker to push and steer with a kid in it:-(

    I just ordered a Combi Cosmo DX for travel to replace our old Savvy. Baby Bargains and StrollerQueen gave it good reviews. It's seems like a really nice stroller for the money, but it's clearly not a high end model. The price was right so I won't be afraid to gate check it or leave it unattended...

    Yeah, I'm not a big Aria fan. I love the look of it, but not its practicality. My biggest problem with it is the buckle/harness system. With a bigger kid who doesn't need to be buckled its not big deal. But for a young baby/toddler its a bear to deal with since the harness doesn't actually attach to the stroller at all and can come off at any time. Just doesn't make me feel very confident, as the baby could slip out of the stroller at any moment.

    And yeah, I find it hard to steer with and without a kid in it.

    LOL If either the Preview or the Mosaic came in pink or purple my decision would be easy. lol But I need a lightweight, small stroller with a decent recline because Joyjoy does occasionally fall asleep in the stroller. I'm actually very happy with my Air 6, but it's wide, and it doesn't do well in tight spaces, not to mention it takes up almost the entire cargo area of the Jeep!

    What about this one?? I love the bright pink and it's a good
    price too...much cheaper than the Quest, altho I don't know
    much about the Swift. I did push one around in a baby store
    a few months back and it seemed decent enuf.

    Good luck pink-stroller shopping!
