I remember when I was pregnant with Pax thinking WOW strollers sure have changed in the last 7 years! It had been 7 years since my last baby and the strollers are just gorgeous and so accommodating now.
I am beyond thrilled to share with you my dream stroller by Stokke. Let me introduce you to their Xplory Stroller. I am not kidding when I say not only do I love this stroller, but Pax loves this stroller. He loves to hold on to the lap bar and look around when we stroll through town. It’s the cutest thing. I love that there are three different seat settings, so if your baby wants to lay back, there’s an option for that and there’s one in between too. The seat can also flip around so your baby can face out as well.
You can find Stokke on Facebook and Twitter.
Let’s take a closer look at the Xplory.
Here you have the main features. How great is this red color?! Speaking of colors, there are six colors to choose from. See all of the choices HERE. I am in love with the beige one that we have for Pax.
A few of my favorite features are the adjustable handle to start. My 8 year old absolutely loves pushing Pax in the stroller so I can lower the handle for him nice and easy. This stroller pushes so smooth, you hardly have to push which is so nice. The protective hood and visor comes in so handy. This is the first stroller I’ve owned where the visor that you can open and close as needed, actually covers the sun completely from the baby. It’s great. The shopping bag holds more than it looks. I’ve fit 2 full grocery bags inside. You can also purchase an extra shopping bag that attaches to the other side where the larger wheels are. I like having the option of storing more “stuff” when I need. The footrest is adjustable so the stroller can easily grow with the baby.
Let’s talk folding the stroller up, shall we? This is a big deal with my husband and I because let’s face it, we are in and out of the trunk all the time with the kids and strollers. You have to take the seat off before folding the stroller base, but I can tell you from my experience that the seat pulls off with minimal work. You literally press 2 buttons on the bottom of the seat and it pops right off. No tugging at all. There’s a little lever on the handle that you pull that easily folds the stroller base to place in your trunk. We’ve had no problems at all and it’s quite easy.
Here’s a look at how the seat and folded stroller fits in the back of our trunk. This is the Honda Odyssey trunk.
Here are all of the options the stroller offers. I love that it grows with your baby, from Newborn to toddler and can face towards you or out. I have used just about every option here.
Here’s a better look at the visor open and closed as I was describing above. You wouldn’t believe the difference it makes to have the visor open when its extra sunny outside. I really love this feature. It is pliable so it folds in and opens very easy. If you want a little extra ventilation in the hood, you can unzip a portion to let some airflow in.
A couple of things to note. If you’re looking for a more compact stroller option, check out the Stokke Scoot, which folds smaller than the Xplory. Also, we started to use the Xplory when Paxton was 8 months old. Even though he loved it–because he was able to sit upright and see the world–the seat belt straps would not fit tight enough for him. Regardless, we still put him inside and buckled him and we never felt unsafe. If you are of the analytical type, check out Jodi Kendall’s in-depth review
We used the stroller in San Diego all weekend and I could not have been happier. You can tell by the look on Pax’s face that he’s a happy boy in his stroller too. A huge thanks to Stokke for allowing us to enjoy their gorgeous stroller . We enjoy telling everyone about it!
Disclosure: I was given the Stokke Xplory Stroller for review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
Thanks for any other informative web site. Whewre
else coulod I get that kind of info written in such a perfect method?
I have a challenge that I am just now running on, and I’ve been on the look out
for such information.
Wow what a feature of this stroller!! i love it and very good review you give of this stroller in this post..i think the seat is very good position so its easy to face to face communication with baby.
Having read this I thought it was really informative.
I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this
short article together. I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and commenting.
But so what, it was still worthwhile!
I miss my stokke everyday. I had another baby a year after my daughter sohad to get rid if my stokke and buy a double. If I am totally honest I would never have parted with it if I had the space to keep it also. In the time I had mine I had never seen another one in the town that I live and was stopped all the time to enquire about it.
If you’re looking for a more compact stroller option, check out the Stokke Scoot, which folds smaller than the Xplory.This is the best place to find the best stroller for baby.
Nice features of that stroller.i like that stroller.thanks for sharing photos with us.
Stokke strollers are the very best. They were preceded by and based upon the Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair. Stokke sold 6 million Tripp Trapps in Norway, population 5 million.
Pax is too cute, Jenny!! Also, love this stroller! Looks perfect!
Wow, what a versatile stroller! I know a few mom-to-be’s who’ll be looking for the best option for them. I’ll be passing this post along to them!
This stroller sounds lovely, and it looks like it has tons of really wonderful options. But at over a thousand dollars for a stroller…I think I’ll stick to the one we have.
Whoa. This is an insane stroller! Love it to bits and I bet Clara would too. 🙂
As we look back on the stroller choices we made for Wes, I would say that the Stokke sounds WAY BETTER and much more like something we’d love to get for future kiddos! Plus it’s so cute 😉
That looks awesome Jenny! I wish they had this a few years ago!
What an awesome stroller! They have definitely changed since I had little ones! 🙂
Pax is the cutest little guy ever! Looks like a great stroller!
Will have to get this stroller for Caleb!
