One of our favorite parts of the ABC Kids Expo was seeing all the new strollers set to launch in the coming months. We'll cover a number of these strollers in more detail as they become available, but here are nine new strollers we are especially excited about!
JOGGERS: A few brands expanded their stroller collections and launched their first jogging strollers. Here are some of the most talked about new releases.
Bugaboo Runner: In a special evening event, Bugaboo unveiled their new jogging stroller that will be compatible with all Bugaboo seats and allow your child to face either direction while you run. Available Spring 2015.
GracoRelay: Graco also joined the jogging stroller market with their Relay stroller that comes with adjustable shocks, a parent tray, kid cupholder, a no-adapter-needed way to attach an infant seat, and a fine-tune adjustment knob so when you lock that front wheel straight you can ensure it's actually straight. Available now exclusively at Babies R Us.
Orbit O2: When I talked with Orbit designed Joseph Hei, he was hesitant to call it a jogger. We finally agreed that their new Orbit O2 is more of a hybrid stroller that allows you to adjust the seat location to a lower, back position better for jogging and a higher, center position which is designed for everyday strolling. The stroller also has pneumatic tires that can handle tough terrain, rear suspension and an adjustable handlebar. Available Summer 2015.
DOUBLE STROLLERS - Having baby #2? Valco, Baby Jogger and UPPAbaby were some of the brands that introduced new double strollers to the market.
Valco Snap Duo2 - This new double from Valco is under 24 lbs and folds like a dream. Love this Grey Marl special edition. Check out the video of the quick fold and convenient carry!
Baby Jogger Vue Double - The Vue was so popular for Baby Jogger that this year they are adding the Vue Lite and the Vue Double. The seats on the Vue Double reverse in seconds and are independent of each other so you can have one child facing each way. Available in 2015.
UPPAbaby Vista: The redesigned 2015 Vista has an easier fold, higher weight limit for the basket and can take two seats, car seats or bassinets. Available in 2015.
OTHER NEWCOMERS: A few other new strollers that caught our eye.
Stokke Xplory Trailz - Stokke expands their high-end stroller collection with a new all-terrain stroller that has large air filled tires and a spacious waterproof shopping basket. Available now.
Mamas & Papas Armadillo Family - Mamas & Papas seriously expanded their Armadillo line with the new Armadillo City, Armadillo Flip, and Armadillo Flip XT. Check out the big seat and super compact fold on the Flip below!
Nuna MIXX: This new everyday stroller from Nuna has a full recline for strolling snoozers, a huge canopy and a reversible seat. Plus the stroller folds compactly with the seat in any position. Available Fall 2014.
