1. What is the best baby stroller? Define your needs before choosing the stroller you need
What are your routes? What is the size of the car trunk? Or are you going to put it away? Do you have stairs to climb? Are you more urban or more rural? How many children do you want? What is your size ? Are you more scarf or cozy? What is your budget ?
I spoke with a mother-to-be who told me “it's harder to choose a stroller than a car”. I admit that it made me laugh a lot but I understand! There are more and more choices and too many choices kill the choice.
My advice to future parents is to ask yourself the question: Why do you want a stroller? It is difficult to anticipate this need. Besides, you only have a few months to make a lot of important decisions, like the color of her room ^^. What you have to say is that there is no perfect stroller (even if that is our goal), the best stroller does not exist either (even if that is also our goal) . There is only the best stroller for you. The best stroller for your friends may not necessarily be the best stroller for you!
Take your time to choose and don't stress too much, if you're “wrong” it doesn't matter. It won't make you bad parents ;-)
2. Big wheel stroller vs small wheel stroller
We increasingly oppose the traditional baby stroller which often has large wheels to a compact stroller which has small wheels. Indeed, the new trend of the compact stroller pushes us as manufacturers to remove elements from the stroller to make it as compact as possible so that it can be considered as cabin luggage! If we remove too much of it, it will necessarily affect the comfort of the baby and the parents. The wheels are a key part of the stroller. Thanks to the all-terrain wheels, our stroller is even more comfortable, more manageable and more practical for climbing on sidewalks. 8 seconds is the time it takes you to install them. At the request of consumers, we have developed the only compact city stroller that can be transformed into an “all-roads” stroller thanks to its large wheels. The all-terrain wheels were designed for cruising in the countryside but are also damn practical in the urban jungle. Of course they are sold with a nice carrying bag to protect them and you can continue to fold the stroller with one hand even with the big wheels! To date, we are the only ones to sell a compact birth stroller with large wheels.
3. The price is not necessarily a guarantee of the quality of the best stroller
Ask your friends who have already had a stroller for several years what it looks like...
The price of a stroller is made up of a few elements:
- The manufacturing cost
- Company fees
- Marketing and communications investments
- The margin of the company(ies)
- Client service
We try to invest as much as possible in the elements that improve the value brought to the customer and not only in marketing, which allows us to offer you a premium compact newborn stroller at an exceptional quality/price ratio...
4. Beware of models sold directly from abroad on marketplaces like Amazon, wish, etc.
Not all pushchairs sold on the Internet necessarily comply with Afnor European safety standards .
All strollers on the Internet do not necessarily offer after-sales service.
Many of our customers are disappointed by a "good plan" for a cheap stroller on the Internet... Today many foreign factories come directly to the French market by creating a brand image, by offering products at very low cost while the quality is not there and the customer service even less!
5. Think durability and after-sales service for your stroller
You will ride for miles and miles with your stroller. She will help you carry your baby, a diaper bag, your handbag and some groceries too...
Check where the company selling your stroller is from. Especially on sites like Amazon. Many strollers and other childcare products are sold in France via amazon but the selling company is based in another country. You may have found a cheap stroller, but you don't know how long this stroller will last and even less if you will have after-sales service when you need it, if only to buy spare parts for the arrival. of the next baby ;-).
6. What makes a birth stroller?
A birth stroller must meet all of the following criteria:
- Lying position
- Harness passage that keeps a small child safe
What is good with the Squizz is that we leave the choice to you! You can use the stroller alone from birth. You don't have to add a car seat or carrycot to fix it.
Instead, do what you want! For the baby's first months, you can indulge yourself and acquire the Squizz carrycot which is very easy to install on the stroller. As we never do things by halves at Squizz, we have thought of everything. The carrycot is semi-rigid to be able to transport the baby without waking him up once he arrives at home. And the icing on the cake: the carrycot can also be used as a bed for the baby's first months thanks to its bassinet function. If you prefer to have it close to you the first few nights, don't panic, the squizz bassinet will be the perfect nest for your baby.
