Suitable from: Birth-5yrs
The Stokke Xplory's trademark design is putting your baby in an elevated position so that it's closer to you - and away from traffic fumes, and it can face forward or backwards. It has a central braking system, locking both back wheels securely without the need for a central brake bar. This also allows you to walk freely (it's quite easy to find you're kicking the base bar of many pushchairs unless you tilt forward).
The large rear wheels are made with rubber and are filled with micro-air capsules (which basically means you don't need a pump - but gives great suspension). The handle is height and angle adjustable. The base chassis is multi-functioning, which allows the attachment and detachment of the carrycot and seat really easily. All the fabric from the Stokke Xplory can be removed and washed at 40 degrees.
The Stokke Xploryis suitable from birth through to preschool years making it the only carrycot, pram, baby buggy, stroller, pushchair (whatever you want to call it!) necessary plus you can buy a car seat adapter for the chassis to take a Maxi-Cosi car seat.
"It's great to have the baby at your level when sitting at a table. It's easy to keep him engaged and happy. Good for my tall husband. Fits in the boot of smaller car. Two wheel mode for stairs is good too."
"It's not been that easy to get used to. There are lots of different knobs and buttons to press and trying to remember what did what was initially very confusing. For instance to fold it when putting it in the car you have to press the buttons on each side of the seat, lift the seat up and manouver the main handle through the gap between the seat and the footrest. Then to fold the base you have to press 2 seperate buttons at the top of the base, lift the base upwards and press another button with your foot to push the back wheels forward(whilst keeping all 4 wheels on the floor). Its a bit like rubbing your stomach and patting your head at the same time and takes quite a lot of practice."
