I admit the new Stokke Xplory Stroller looks pretty cool, but for a little over $1000—it costs $1049.99 to be exact—it has to do more than have good looks. Like change diapers too!
Alas, it doesn’t, but it does have a two-way facing seat and five seat reclining positions. Still not impressed? The full-size stroller also has a unique height-adjustable seat that brings baby up closer to the parent so you can skip the high chair at restaurants and just pull up the stroller to the table, and save your back–you don’t have to bend over as much to get to baby. Most importantly, it “optimizes eye contact and bonding between parent and baby.”
That’s great and all, but a good baby carrier like the Baby Bjorn or Ergo is also a good way to encourage bonding and eye contact. And they’ll only set you back about $100, leaving you a big chunk of change to stock up on other essential baby gear. That’s right, the Stokke doesn’t come with a car seat, either.
What do you think? Would you pay $1000 for the Stokke Xplory Stroller?
