As we strolled around the streets of Stockholm with our new black (this discrete low profile colour is Stockholmers absolute favourite) Emmaljunga we felt really mature and secure. Not that the strolley had been cheap - our daugther has a generous grandfather - but we considered us a bit wiser and down-to-earth than people with the flashy three weel strollers. Until something connecting the wheel broke the first time. We had it fixed but it happened a few more times besides some other annoying problems. Now we aren't as impressed about our stroller as we once where.
Besides our Emmaljunga we have a cheap light-weight easy travel stroller. It's a must-have especially when travelling by airplane as it's a complete suicide mission for strollers. I think I've heard that the airlines calculate that one out of ten strollers are damaged in the luggage handling and thus they adjust their insurances to this. But how fun is it dealing with these things after a beautiful vacation. So it's better having one that you don't really have to care about so much.
As if two strollers wheren't enough we now need a third one - a duo stroller! In one month we'll be a two-kids family and as both kids will be less than 1.5 years they'll both be needing to be transported around. This time we'll be considering also the fancier models in our stroller hunt. We're basically faced with two options - a budget or a luxury model! And the differences in price are quite impresseive. Here is a price example from a nearby shop which we've considered, it includes an extra carrycot for the baby to lie in:
