Stroller update

with one comment

About a month ago I wrote about how complicated it could be to find the right stroller.  And about how we had bought a travel stroller and infant carrier combo to start out but we still needed an everyday stroller.  I also mentioned I was worried about how this stroller would handle the cobblestone in some parts of our neighborhood.

Turns out that the

FAIL

This cobblestone covers a small bridge that we must cross to leave our apartment’s courtyard, and it is disturbingly rocky with the Quinny Zapp set-up.  To be fair, most strollers would find this stretch challenging.

So within two days of our first outing, we bought the stroller below, a Teutonia, which is a well known German stroller company:

Although still bumpy crossing the bridge, with this stroller we can go for a walk without worry.   Besides the bigger wheels, the removable bassinet, which though we thought we didn’t need, has proven to be quite useful.

  1. Sorry about the fail. 😦 All quinnys are 3-wheeled, yes? I never found the 3-wheeled type so stable, especially going over small or big bumps (like curbs). Glad you have a good one now!
