The last item, a stroller might seem like a luxury to some, but, with a litter of babies, it was my lifeline. Without it, I was unable to leave the house by myself, an independence that I not only wanted but needed. Considering its importance, I spent a lot of time researching features, availability in Canada and pricing. There were several features that were lacking in the stroller line that I purchased but I’m happy to report that Valco Baby Canada’s newest product line meets all my requirements!
Valco Baby is Coming to Canada in 2016!
If the name sounds familiar that’s because, after a short hiatus Valco Baby products will be available in Canada as of 2016! That includes their Snap4, Snap Duo and Snap Ultra as well as the Tri Mode Duo X Tailormade.
The Snap4 is ideal for those who prefer wheels at all four corners. Weighing in at 6.6kg/14 lbs the Snap4 sets the benchmark for comfort, manoeuvrability and portability in compact strollers. With all the features you expect from Valco Baby, from the fully reclining seat with built-in support and adjustable footrests, to our new Tilt-Lock brake system & simple Valco Baby Clean Fold™ technology. The Snap4 is the ultimate stroller for parents on the move. The stroller will be available in several colours and includes an adjustable footrest, luxurious fabrics, Front Bar, Convenient Shoulder Carry Strap & Safety Tether Strap.
As a Mother of multiples, I was most interested in the new and improved Snap Duo.
Currently, it’s the lighted full featured double stroller in the market today with a frame weighing less than 24lbs. Included are individual canopies, adjustable footrests, roomy comfortable seats, one handed clean fold, ample underneath storage space and a convenient carry strap.
The system includes two front bars which would have cost me an additional $105 for my stroller system. It also has ample storage space underneath the stroller which every parent knows is critical for all the stuff you have to bring along!
I’m not the only parent to covet this product as it is the most requested stroller by Canadian consumers**.
And last but not least, the newly designed Tri Mode Single and Twin are all terrain strollers with a compact fold. Since they’re compatible with Valco Baby’s toddler seat, it can grow with your family taking it from newborn to toddler and beyond. The dual stroller is a dream to push and at only 29 inches wide you can take it anywhere.
If you are like me and can’t pick just one stroller, don’t. I have several strollers (in Canada and in Mexico) and even though The Kids are six years old, I still use them. Be sure to connect with them at the links below so that you’re the first to find out when their products hit the shelves in Canada as early as March!
