Strollers
Featured Stroller
There are many factors to consider when selecting a stroller. How often are you going to use it? Where are you going to use it? Are you going to travel with it? How many strollers will you have? Do you need an entire travel system? etc...

Because of all these variables, I can't recommend one stroller that will be great for everyone, but I can show you what's out there in the wide world of baby transportation that doesn't sport winnie the pooh upholstery.

Try to figure out what your needs are, figure out your price range and find the products that best meet your needs. Then find a store and take the stroller for a test drive. Make sure you are comfortable with the motion, the weight, the size and that it has the accessories you want.

Orbit Stroller

A recent addition to the world of strollers is the Orbit system. They have created an all-in-one car seat and stroller solution with base that stays in the car. I'm not sure that I would have picked this stroller had it been available at the time, but I am intrigued at the idea of all the interchangable parts. Currently in addition to the three pieces shown at right, there is a toddler stroller seat, toddler car seat, a bassinet and a rocker base.

The infant system shown above retails for about $900. The bassinet and rocker retail for about $240 and the toddler stroller seat is another $175. (Makes our Bugaboo Frog and carseat combo look like a bargain, but this is still very cool.) Click to buy
