Choosing the Ideal Stroller
Strollers come in all shapes, sizes and colors. There are single, double, and triple strollers. There are some that are specially designed for newborns and ones for toddlers. Then there are practical, lightweight ones, ideal for traveling, and heavy-duty jogger strollers, perfect for long walks and hikes along the beach. In fact, there is a stroller for everyone.

Explory stroller : Stokke
The Stokke stroller is a designer luxury stroller. Definitely the Cadillac of strollers. Gone are the days of a child's only view being car pipe exhaust and briefcases. The Stokke stroller ushers in the elevated position of strollers, so that children are closer to their parents and perched above the mundane of the world. There are five separate positions your child can face; two face the parent while three face forward. One of the positions can even be used as a high chair. And these remarkable features barely scratch the surface….
