So I have been meaning to publish this for a while. Last month, I was really stressing about which stroller to get. This is an important purchase for us because we walk to work currently, and will continue to walk to work AND daycare. (The daycare is 3 doors from Marc's office and 2 blocks from mine.)
But of course, we needed one that looked great (because we are design snobs), that fit in the Mini's trunk (no mini van here) AND one that was not $900 (because I'm cheap).
My search was exhaustive. I did days and days of research online. We stroller stalked people the whole time we were in Boston for my brother's wedding. We made the poor lady at the baby store in Boston fold and unfold every single (pricey) stroller they had.
I figured out I wanted to Maxi Cosi carseat because I read that it fit nicely in the Mini Cooper, it looks great, is not too heavy and has good safety ratings. Check out the Citrus Green color. So cool! (This is the color we want even though our dumb registry will only let me add the blue one! So frustrating.)
Anyway, then I saw the Maxi Cosi Foray stroller online. The carseat snaps right into it with no adapters! It looks great! It has good reviews. AND it sells for half of what the similar looking ones go for! Marc and I headed over to BabiesRus. Marc spotted it right away. We had to get the manager to let us take the floor model outside to my car, but Voila!
It fits in the trunk! I was WAY too excited! (This one is in the brown color, but we are getting the all black.) The other great things about it is that the baby can face you OR out. The handles extend for taller people (like Marc). It reclines. And the big back wheels make it move nicely too!
Phew! So glad that is over. I thought I'd post about this because my exhaustive search I found other Mini Cooper owner blogs to be really helpful!
