WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT BABY STROLLERS?

What were your experiences with your baby strollers? Was it hard to transport or carry especially on public transits? What if you do not have a car? Do you have any suggestions if someone would redesign a stroller from its mechanism to its features?

Thank you for that answer Jaime! I actually agree on what you said 'bout the high-end strollers. I'm trying to think of a way on how I can make these strollers easier to transport even for those who do not have their own vehicles or maybe try to lessen the efforts of folding and assembling the strollers. I find it very stressful to fold and assemble whenever I need to take the bus.



by the way, could you describe what a "toddler-friendly" stroller is in your opinion?

Oh, by toddler-friendly I just meant the more simple design (umbrella-type) stroller. So instead of a big, bulky stroller, it's just a smaller, more compact stroller that they can get into and out of easily. I used one for my son right up until this past Fall and it was great for short walks to run errands. I haven't needed a stroller for a while now and I'm so glad :)

I'm not too fussy about the mechanical details of a stroller, but one thing I will say being someone that relies on public transit, is that the more compact the better. A lot of higher-end strollers tend to be bulky and big (especially the wheels) which is a true pain in the ass to get off and on a bus. I'm talking about the $600 strollers that have fancy features and ergonomical designs and such---personally it's not something I was the least bit worried about when it came to a stroller. I wanted something that was easy to push, maneuvered easily when I was in shopping centres or parks and was easy to get in and out of vehicles, whether folded together or in use. I chose a Graco-brand stroller which was very basic but served the purpose and held up for the two years I used it before switching to a smaller, more toddler-friendly stroller.
