Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
some of the most important features I was looking for were if the stroller could fold as a double (which means if you have twins, will it still fold up), and also if the seat is reversible. For example, some seats will literally spin, while others the handle will simple move from one side to the other. I really liked the ability to compare features side-by-side, as often things can get confusing.
I recommend taking a quick look at the site, at least for a little information.
Some other things to consider are whether or not you'll be using the stroller a lot in the an urban environment, vs a rural environment. If, for example, you only take the baby(s) out on a walk occasionally, getting a stroller that has simple foam tires may be enough. In my opinion, I'd go for a stroller with foam-filled rubber (if you're a bit more active like me), as it gives the support of a rubber wheel without having to worry about popping a flat.
Another important aspect to your stroller which few consider is it's ability to grow with the baby as the baby grows. Often for the first few months of birth your baby will be using the car-seat as the primary mode of mobile-protection both inside and outside the car. You want to make sure that you are happy with the car-seat, and that the on you choose either matches the stroller you buy, or is compatible with it. Some brands only allow their own car-seats to work with their strollers, so be aware of that when making your decision!
Lastly the most important thing to consider is the overall weight of the stroller, as you'll be needing to lug this in-and-out of your vehicle on a regular basis. Many people get enamored by the size and storage of some strollers, without considering weight.
Anyway, I hope this information can help you decide on the best stroller to fit your needs, good luck and congratulations, you're a parent!
-I wanted a stroller that was easy to interact with my child without breaking my back or having to squat down to the typical stroller height. The Xplory, I believe, is the only stroller with the height adjustable seat, allowing your child to be closer to you, which promotes parent/child interaction in addition to providing him/her a much better view of the world. My daughter absolutely loves looking around during our 2 hour walks on a nature trail. The high sitting position has allowed her to see over railings and other obstructions along the route. I have set the seat at the highest position since day one and haven't felt the need to change it. She's currently 18.5 lbs at 9 month and the stroller still feels solid and stable at the highest seat setting. I've never felt unsafe even going over uneven terrain.
-The high sitting position has also come in handy multiple times while eating at restaurants. I have not needed a highchair since I've purchased this stroller. I typically just push the Xplory right up to the table with her in the rear facing position and I've got an instant highchair.
-The 3 easy selectable rear facing and 2 front facing seating positions is a great feature. My baby girl loves sitting in the full upright position while out on our walks, and when she gets sleepy along the way, I simply adjust it to the full recline position and she naps comfortably.
-There are plenty of other adjustable features on this stroller. The foot rest is adjustable to grow with your child so my daughter's feet won't be painfully dangling when she gets older. The handle height is adjustable to suit the parents' height. I'm 5'7" and find the handle most comfortable at the highest position. The handle bar itself is adjustable too. You can set it parallel to the ground or rotate it either upward or downward, depending on your liking. Rotating it upward will offer another 3-4 inches of height for taller parents.
-Maneuverability of the Xplory is awesome! It glides effortlessly on any surfaces and it turns on a dime. It's not a compact stroller by any means, but it sure handles like one. Never had any issues navigating tight clothing store aisles. It allows easy one handed operation while walking the dog or carrying bags.
-The unique two wheel function when the large rear wheels are collapsed is great for getting over obstacles or going up stairs (never with a child in the stroller of course). Just this past weekend we came across a downed tree blocking the entire width of the trail with only a tiny side path covered in branches and rocks to get around. I simply put the seat in the front facing position, collapse the rear wheels and pulled the stroller over large branches and rocks like a golf cart. It would've been impossible for most stroller to traverse that kind of uneven terrain. Chalk one up for the Xplory!
Now let's talk about some of the not so great features.
-Stowing the Xplory is not the easiest task in the world. It's far from the one handed collapsible feature that other strollers offer. It is a multi-step process. You first remove the safety bar to gain access to your child, then you have to remove the foot rest before removing the seat itself from the frame. Even the optional cup holder seems to get in the way if you don't take that off first. So I basically throw all the various parts into the seat and set it aside. I then retract the handle to the lowest setting because it won't fit in the back of my 06 Mazda 3 hatchback otherwise, pull the lever that unlocks the collapsible rear wheel and give it a good kick to actually fold it. I often have to kick it more than once to apply the right amount of force. Don't understand why they can't make that part easier. Once it's folded, I then simply lay the seat on top of the chassis and throw the entire thing in the back of my hatchback. The trick that I've learned for stacking the seat and chassis is to reinstall the safely bar across the seat first so that I can use it as a handle to grab it with one hand while still holding the handle of the chassis. Otherwise, you would have to lay the chassis/frame down on the ground first which rests on the easily scratched handle.
-The Xplory tips the scale at 23lbs which is not heavy for the design but it certainly doesn't make getting it in and out of your car an easy task. It's not a stroller you would want to make a quick trip to the super market.
-Construction of the stroller feels very solid but the plastic they use does feel a little cheap. As other reviews have complained about, the paint on the plastic is very fragile and can be easily scratched and scraped off. Having said that, my Xplory has weathered the constant use (2-3 days per week) pretty well. I've only seen some minor scratches along the bottom of the chassis and the part of the handle that usually rests on the ground when the stroller is laying flat.
-One other minor complaint is that sometimes the foot brake gets accidentally engaged while folding/collapsing the rear wheel. It's annoying but it just requires a soft kick to release the brake.
The Stokke Xplory has certainly met all of my expectations, and I have thoroughly enjoyed using it, whether making a trip to the mall, restaurants, or a long walk on the trail. Although, it's not designated as a jogger, it feels like it's built well enough to be use as one. So if you're in the market for a multi-purpose stroller, albeit an expensive one, you should seriously consider giving the Xplory a try. It might seem absurd to spend over $900 for a stroller, but, to me, it has been worth the investment, considering that some used ones are selling on ebay for $500-600. So keep yours in a good shape and it should retain a good resale value. In the end, the Xplory might not be the perfect stroller, but then again, there is no such thing as the perfect stroller. What is does, it does better than anyone else. Besides, I couldn't put a price on a stroller that can bring my child closer to me while we explore the world together. That's the company's biggest selling point and it delivers.
The smoothest ride of any stroller I have tested and pretty much the only one I have not tested is an orbit. The wheels are not air filled which cuts down on maintenance but manage to not have the bumpy ride that strollers without air tires can have.
The fact that you have so many options with the seat is really fantastic and useful--not just a gimmick. It really IS great the the baby can sit high up--not only for the experience but also in restaurants. You can also recline the seat for sleeping.
The canopy with the visor is wonderful -- too many times stroller canopies are too short but that's not the case here
Stroller comes with a rain cover and mosquito net
Lots of customizable options--a carrycot for newborns if you are a city person without a carseat, a carseat adaptor that allows you to make a travel system, a cupholder, a blanket that snaps into the seat so that the baby doesn't drop it, a winter and summer kit that allows you to change the textiles for the weather, the ability to change the color of the stroller, a parasol that attaches to the stroller, a rider board for older children, its really great. You can basically tailor this stroller to your lifestyle
The stroller comes with a bag and you can opt for a second diaper bag that attaches to the seat at the back. This is a lot of storage which can also come with you as it detaches and has handles for easy carrying
It's a very stylish stroller. Many people will ask you about it. If you are not one for attention or don't like to make small talk with strangers-- this is not the stroller for you.
It's an established brand with great customer service. I've had good experiences with them. If something goes wrong-they set you up with someone who will fix the stroller.
I would love to see a console type addition instead of just the cup holder like bob strollers have.
There are about 5 steps to fold down the stroller which includes popping off the seat. It takes about 1-2 minutes. For city people this will be no issue but those with vehicles may like an easy fold n go like the city mini. We lived the stokke so much that am extra min wasn't an issue.
Make sure it's compatible with the storage space in your car. It's not terribly compact.
They have a rider board if you have more then one child but no rumble seat attachment and no double strollers. The rider board is only compatible with the V3 chassis so if you have a v1 or v2 you have to go with a non stokke rider board option
There is no basket-we find the bags sufficient but that might not be ok for everyone.
Bottom line: this is a no brainier for those who live in the city--it maneuvers like a dream.
For those who travel often by car, make sure that it fits in your trunk and that you are comfortable with the fold down process.
Final word: this company really thinks of all the details and as a result it's well thought out, streamlined and convenient. We love ours. I actually think its worth the money.
