Maggie Gyllenhaal and fiance Peter Sarsgaard took a walk in Santa Monica on Sunday with baby Ramona in her super awesome Orbit stroller (in Mocha), Maggie’s
broham brother Jake Gyllenhaal (and Jake’s dog Atticus). Pink is the New Blog has the first photos of 6-week-old Ramona here.
The Orbit is the stroller I wish I had when Anya was born. I had heard about it before but checked it out in person at the ABC Kids Show in Las Vegas in September. It has so many unique features. It’s a car seat and stroller in one. Its 360 degree rotation allows your baby to be rear, forward, or even sideways facing but also lets you put the carsear in the car facing you and then twist it to lock into rearfacing position. It has a unique twist-and-lift mechanism allows easy one-handed folding. It handles really nicely and folds really easily and compactly. A toddler seat that fits on the stroller (but not in the car) will be available in early 2007. Also, you will be able to purchase a frame that lets you use it as a rocker/bassinet. Check out the demo on their site to see how super cool it is.
Yes, it will set you back $900 but you do get a lot of bang for your buck and super contemporary design to boot. This stroller is not for the family that is content with a Graco but if you are strongly considering a Bugaboo Frog/Gecko/Cameleon or Stokke Xplory, this might be a stroller to check out while you’re at it.
