I have found my new travel stroller!
We’ve done a great deal of traveling as a family this year – be it 4 hours away to Edmonton to check out the mall and Sea Lions show or to Mexico on a Disney Cruise. With an infant in our family, taking a stroller along was essential but it came down to giving up my favorite features of one for features of another.
Yes, I’m fortunate that as a product reviewer I have a stroller selection to choose from, and I realize not everyone is that lucky. Moms need one stroller to do it all and many times that doesn’t happen and they end up spending more money on more strollers than they should!
phil&teds latest stroller, Dot, may just be all a mom needs from birth til 5 years, at least that’s their hope!
A multi-terrain stroller is generally big and bulky and not something one can easily travel with. I’ve taken our Mountain Buggy stroller on a road trip this summer only when we had a truck to take it in, it’s just too big to fit in our van with our luggage. Now, I can easily fit the Dot in our van because it folds nice and compact.
The Dot is easy to push and maneuver on different surfaces making it a great choice for our travels. We may just have the best of both worlds with a compact stroller that performs like a full-size multi-terrain stroller.
Accessories for the Dot make it a useful product right from birth – newborns can lay flat when the seat is reclined and when a new member joins the family, you can double-double (heh.) and purchase the Double Kit for the Dot which can attach to the front or the back. You can even personalize your Dot with colors like apple, flint (which we have) or chilli.
You can also purchase car seat adapters making it easy to clip your car seat into the Dot from day one. And the best part for me – the Freerider from Mountain Buggy attaches to this stroller as well! In Canada, you can find the phil&teds Dot Stroller at Lussobaby.ca for $449.99!
We’ve found our new travel stroller – now the problem is figuring out what destination we’re going to head to next!
