The Kolcraft Aria, lol...

I was bummed to not find the wagon I wanted in stock at TRU, so had to ease my pain by looking at strollers and carseats (the Alpha Sport is NICE!). They had a lavender el cheapo umbrella stroller with a hood I almost couldn't resist (I do loves me purple....), but I was most intrigued by this little beauty

It was almost as easy to do the same fold as my $200 Aria, but it doesn't lock itself or take an infant seat....but man, for that price, who cares? I didn't kick the wheels... If it hadn't been in the dorkiest giraffe print (I LIKE giraffes, but this was Dorky!) I might have been tempted for a travel stroller....

Anyway, just had to share :)

I think that is a great stroller. It doesn't feel as plasticky as the Baby Trend Trendsport my friend has. Kmart has it in a black pattern that is not as strange as the giraffe. It folds much nicer than the Trend Sport, too! :p

We've had this one too.

Of course, we found ours at someones curb. :whistle:

So, I didn't really care about all the other stuff. Yay, free stroller.

I sold it for $10.00, too.

Yes, I am a trash picker. Not a dumpster diver. (There is a difference.)

You're sure you didn't have the Lite Sport? I used to have one of those and LOVED it! But I thought this was new, this whole 'stand alone' feature. Or I'm totally out of the loop...which isn't a bad thing to say about cheap strollers...is it? (lol)

Our Aria IS our travel stroller :)

I picked ours up in the fall of 2002 at Value City in a blow out sale.. a 2001 model (w/o the ability to carry an infant seat) for only $49! :thumbsup:

We have a Peg Milano as well which we use around the neighborhood (I actually had to talk my aunt DOWN from a Bertini Pram which wouldn't have worked for us as our only stroller!)... but the Aria is our mall and travel stroller.
