These strollers that Mutsy makes seem to be very sturdy. I will only buy strollers that are made for the rugged outdoors. Too many strollers that you find in the super stores have cheap plastic wheels. Cheap wheels won’t work for me. I have to have the big wheels. We live on a gravel road where the mail box is about 1/2 a mile away.
The Mutsy strollers also look to be multi functional. I love when you can use something from birth to as long as possible. My kids were both over 8 lbs when they were born. I knew they were going to be big too so I never got an infant car seat/carrier. I also never worried about the stroller. I just used towels to help them keep their heads up. However, we were looking at strollers with multiple uses.
Here is what Mutsy says on their site.
interchangeability > The quintessential stroller for today’s modern parents,
the Mutsy Urban Rider offers unparalleled flexibility for baby transport.
Featuring strikingly clean lines for an urban-chic feel, your Urban Rider
provides a full-sized, cosseting bassinet for baby and a separate,
adjustable seat to use as baby grows. The car seat adaptor,
babysitter, shopping basket and Funseat are available
separately. All components
can be easily interchanged.
Mutsy also makes seating. I like the style high chair they make. It is very similar to the Stokke brand which is what we purchased. The child can grow with the seat. They are also able to sit at the table. One less tray to clean when they are sitting at the table. I think they also feel closer to the family meal.
You know, I have found that as I learn about more products, I buy what I know is good. I had never seen Mutsy before blogging. I have seen Mutsy on Momdot and on a few other sites. They seem to be a great company. I don’t have first hand experience so I’m not going to pretend that I do, but if you know about all of your options for seating and strollers then you’ll find you don’t have to settle for a piece of junk. Our first stroller was not very good. We had a Jeep jogging stroller. It drove me crazy. The front wheel was locked in place so I had to lift the stroller whenever I wanted to turn. Don’t ever buy a stroller that has a locked wheel.
