Just a Strolling! How to Pick a Stroller Part II

Jul 14, 2008
Tip Number Six: Quality Construction

Make sure you choose a stroller that is well made with quality materials. The metal or aluminum frame of the stroller should be strong and stable. Also look for welded seams, tightly stitched seat covers and finished edges.

You may also want to check the wheels. Are they even or do they tip? You want the stroller to sit on the ground evenly and be a sturdy, safe place for your child.

Tip Number Seven: Stroller Grows With Baby!

As your baby grows, you want your stroller to grow with him or her. Look for a weight maximum of at least 40 pounds, a generously sized seat, a multi-position back that adjusts from a reclining position for when they are small, to a sitting up position when they reach the toddler stage and an adjustable footrest for baby as they grow taller. One example of a great stroller that grows with your baby is the Baby Planet Max Traveler stroller. It is suitable for newborns up to children weighing 45 pounds (available at Pure and Honest Kids for $329.99).

Tip Number Eight: Breakdown of Stroller

Is it easy to breakdown the stroller you selected? Can you store it within the trunk of your car or inside a closet? This is something to consider because strollers come in many shapes and sizes, and you need to choose a stroller that fits in your vehicle and in the designated spot in your house. The Easy Walker Sky stroller, for instance, easily be folded into a handy package, and stores neatly in small spaces ($499.00 at Pure and Honest Kids.)

Tip Number Nine: Personal Style

There are so many kinds of strollers available today for parents. They come in many different colors, designs, styles and models. Choose a stroller that is true to your personal style and one that you will feel proud to push around town. There are sporty strollers, chic strollers, colorful strollers, shabby chic strollers...you name it, there is a stroller out there that meets your personal style. It should be a practical purchase, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun and stylish, too!

One great stroller system that is stylish but still functional is the Easy Walker Sky Carrycot and Stroller ($169.00 and $499.00 respectively at Pure and Honest Kids.) The carrycot (which looks like a carriage) comes in so many great colors, and will fit right onto your Easy Walker Sky stroller. You get two different looks within one stroller. You can have the carriage look with the carrycot, and once baby gets older and is ready to see the word, take the carrycot off and you'll be set with the sporty and very stylish Easy Walker Sky stroller. Talk about personal style....

Tip Number 10: Price

Pure and Honest Kids knows price is a factor, too, when it comes to a big purchase like a stroller! That's why we offer strollers from $149.00-$699.99.

Remember that the more expensive models are often times built with higher quality materials and more features, and are likely to last longer. A few dollars extra at the start makes more sense than having to purchase a brand new stroller down the line with child number two. Choose a stroller that will last for years to come.

Remember, strollers carry the most precious cargo of all-your darling babies, so choose wisely. Happy strolling!
