Introducing the Stokke Trailz
Last Friday Eleanor and I made the long journey to London after snapping up an invite from Stokke to the fantastic Baby Show held at Olympia. London and I have a love hate relationship…. I love London but my oh my do I hate the travelling. Eleanor has been to London 3 times now in the short time she’s been on this planet so we are very much familiar with the difficulties you’re faced with when travelling on trains/undergrounds with a buggy… I’ll be sure to share some top tips in a future post but for now, let’s get back to the baby show…
After 1 train, 2 undergrounds and a bus replacement, I finally got to Olympia unfashionably late, strutting (not at all) into what I can only describe as a pramaholics dreamworld – aka the Stokke press event. Unfortunately I think I missed the presentations and with E having just endured almost 4 hours of travelling, I was straight onto changing and feeding duties.
Anyone who reads my blog knows I’m a big Stokke-a-holic. Up to now I own their Tripp Trapp (x2), Flexi bath and MyCarrier… all of which are used within an inch of their lives. However, at the Baby Show I finally got a closer look at the most sought after Stokke products – their pushchairs!!
The Xplory has gained a bit of cult status over the years – well founded too, given it’s rave reviews. But, there’s a new kid on the block… an adventurous one at that! Let me introduce to you the all terrain Stokke Trailz…
“Built for adventure, Stokke® Trailz™ takes you wherever you want to go – in all seasons and in all terrains. Like all Stokke® strollers, the carry cot and seat positions of new Stokke® Trailz™ lift your baby higher to encourage connection between parent and child. Superior manoeuvrability and effortless steering secure a smooth ride for your little one. Large air filled tyres and a spacious waterproof shopping basket make Stokke® Trailz™ the perfect choice for active families who love the outdoors – no matter the weather.”
I love this pushchair. For me, it has everything I personally look for in a pushchair and more:
– High quality build
– HUGE basket
– large back wheels (great for scooting up pavements)
– a decent seat height
– fantastic manoeuvrability
– versatility when it comes to different surfaces
It looks great too! You can buy the Trailz in lots of different colours but I would be tempted to jazz things up a bit with one of their style kits. This one is the Cube style kit which allows you to have 3 different looks and are compatible with their Xplory, Crusi aswell as the Trailz:
There’s something for everyone in Stokke’s range of pushchairs… if you need something a bit more light weight that folds up nicely to slot in the boot then I’d recommend you take a look at the Scoot. Or if comfort is key and you need the adaptability of a double then the Crusi might be for you. Now, these pushchairs are at the premium end of the market with the quality also being reflected in the price tags but it’s worth noting that they also hold their value. It might just be an investment well worth making.
What do you think?
*Disclaimer: After attending the event, Stokke provided us with a Stokke changing bag (which is lovely btw) however all opinions are my own and I definitely DEFINITELY love Stokke*
