HUGE NEW STROLLER ALERT!!!
There is big news in the stroller world and we are super excited about it! After a 7 year hiatus of debuting a new stroller, the Norwegian stroller company, Stokke, has announced they will be adding two new strollers, the Crusi and Scoot, at the beginning of 2013.
The Stokke Crusi is the more full-featured stroller of the two new options. This reversible seat stroller will accommodates up to 33 lbs. It will sport an adjustable handle, higher seat with 5 recline positions, large basket, adjustable foot rest, and linked rear brakes. The Crusi will roll on rear puncture proof tires and front lockable swivel wheels for superb maneuverability.
And if that isn’t enough, the Crusi will transform into a double stroller with a second seat option, making it the first double stroller for Stokke! The Crusi price is said to be $1430 and is slated to be released in North America in mid-February 2013. (Yes expensive, right?!? It’s Stokke though, you didn’t expect it to be cheap, did you?!?)
The Stokke Scoot is the lighter (and cheaper!) of the two new offerings. It weighs in just under 22 lbs, sports a reversible seat, easy one-handed compact fold, fabulous push, adjustable handle and foot rest. The 3-panel canopy will have a large mesh opening to allow air to circulate through the seat and the soft suspension will give baby a smooth ride.
We love that the stroller sports the higher seat that the Xplory is famous for to encourage parent/baby bonding and give the option to turn the stroller into an impromptu high chair.
Both the Stokke Scoot and Crusi will be available in 7 colors – black, red, brown, dark navy, purple, beige and light green.
*Too bad Stokke didn’t show at the ABC Kids Expo this week because we would have loved to bring you a sneak peek video! Stay tuned for our full Baby Gizmo video review coming soon when the stroller is released!
