Stokke Xplory Complete Stroller Review: Recommended by Lusso Baby
When Lusso Baby owners Arash Fasihi and Shima Javadi recently had their baby, they purchased the Stokke Xplory Complete stroller. Arash demonstrated the stroller for me and couldn’t say enough about how much he and his wife loved it.
What Lusso Baby says:
“Very adaptable stroller that allows the child to be close to mom. The seat raises and lowers – and is perfect for sitting the child at table level in restaurants. Stokke manufactures one stroller product that satisfies the stringent safety requirements of all countries. Clean unique modern design.”
What VancouverMom.ca thinks:
I’m a sucker for unique modern design. I love anything unusual and eye-catching and I especially love beauty when it’s coupled with excellent functionality. Norwegian company Stokke seems to have the modern touch – from their iconic Stokke Trip Trapp high chair to their Stokke Sleepi crib – and the Stokke Xplory Complete stroller is no exception.
The Stokke Xplory Complete stroller key feature is that it brings baby closer to mom. The seat raises so your baby is up high, rather than at floor level, which means that you can interact and converse with your baby more intimately. Raise the seat and your baby can enjoy the sights at the Vancouver Aquarium. Lower and bring the seat to table height so that your baby can be part of mealtime and the conversation.
The stroller breaks down into two pieces – a chassis and seat – and also comes with a bassinet for infants who can’t support themselves in a seat. I consider a bassinet an excellent bonus feature since it can potentially replace the need for you to buy a bed-side bassinet for your newborn. And unlike other bassinets, the Stokke Xplory Complete’s bassinet has a hard shell, which means that it can be used as a standalone bed – perfect for a travel bed. The rear pocket also supports the seat by itself, allowing the seat to be used as a standalone seat.
But the versatility of this stroller doesn’t stop there. You can face baby rearwards and forwards. The under carriage basket has a huge capacity, but also snaps into a tidy flat shape when not in use. The unique oval shaped handle, which raises and lowers, gives people different comfort options for their grip preference.
It seems that the stroller is also popular with the stars: Russel Crowe, Angelina Jolie and Sarah Jessica Parker are all rumoured to have the Stokke Xplory Complete.
And if you’re worried about whether or not this stroller will grow with your family, Stokke has recently released the Stokke Xplory Rider, a wheel board accessory that let’s older children hitch a ride whenever they’re tired.
Who should buy this stroller:
Anyone who wants a little luxury in their life for both indoors and out and who wants the extra features like an excellent ergonomic handling system and the multi-use bassinet and seat.
