If you’ve been following along, you know I am a member of the Stokke fan club, maybe even the president. Stokke makes incredibly beautiful, well designed and engineered products that are easy to love.
Time and time again I have raved about my Stokke Xplory, and our lil bee was the Xplory poster child, her preference for it convincing parents how special it truly was. We will use our Xplory for teeny tiny bee, and will love all the comforts it brings us. Our only complaint has been that the Xplory isn’t exactly a lightweight, “grab and go” stroller. It is the ultimate in luxury stroller comfort. But we need something more compact~ a stroller we could take anywhere and enjoy the comforts for which Stokke is known but with the convenience our life necessitates.
For us, that’s the Stokke Scoot!
Becoming a family of five means we will be on the go a lot! New baby has older siblings that are in and out of activities, parties and playdates. I need to be able to be mobile in a flash but of course want to offer our new baby a super cozy and snuggly place to rest when I am not babywearing. Stokke introduced the Scoot in early 2013, (yes!! I am a bit late to the game, it was quite a bumpy year!) and it is as special as our beloved Xplory in a more lightweight compact version. We call it an “Xplory light”.
The Stokke Scoot is the perfect combination of function, comfort and attention to detail all wrapped up to make one super unique, not to mention compact and versatile ride.
Features of the Scoot that WE LOVE:(we mean besides the luxurious design and uber sleek lines)
- cozy, cocoon like seat and canopy combination to make your child feel secure and comfortable
- super easy to manuever, push, stroll and operate
- you are closer to your child, encourages bonding, security, and togetherness
- it is soft to the touch, no harsh metal corners, or frame to poke you (or your child!)
- folds flat and can be folded one handed (once you get used to it!)
- comes with attached, easily accessible! basket that folds when Scoot folds
- 2 way rear and front facing seat
- 4 recline to upright positions
- handle adjusts to different heights
- compact when folded (we keep ours in our hall closet when not in use)
- the sturdy/stable footrest doubles as a stepping bar for older children
- easy locking brake (single brake, can be locked/unlocked with bare foot!)
- easily fits through doorways
- like the Xplory, it double as a cafe chair while out and about
