There’s a new hot stroller on the block, being pushed by the likes of Halle Berry, Trista Sutter and Angela Kinsey. It’s the Micralite Toro.
The Micralite Toro is sold as either a newborn system($789) with bassinet and adapters for attaching the Maxi Cosi Mico carseat, or as a standard pushchair stroller system ($599). Its best feature is how incredibly lightweight, compact and easy to fold the frame is. This makes the Micralite Toro a top choice amongst savvy city dwellers. Maybe this is also why New Yorker and Saturday Night Live cast member Amy Poehler already has a Micralite Toro too.
At first glance this stroller looks a little unusual, with two large air tires placed close together in the rear and smaller rotating wheels spaced farther apart up front. But despite the "backwards" look it is a dream to push. It steers accurately with a single finger and turns on a dime. The bassinet on the newborn system is roomy and rides nice and high. This keeps baby closer to mom, up and away from exhaust fumes. The chair has multiple recline positions and is well padded for a toddler’s comfort.
The innovative Micralite Toro stroller manages to be all things to all stroller pushers without sacrificing style and quality: Stroller "system" fanatics can have their all-in-one needs met. Fashionistas can have fun customizing their strollers with removable seat pads in solid colors and animal prints. Joggers, hikers and dads with a penchant for strollers that vaguely resemble monster trucks, will soon be able to order the ATV kit and replace the front tires with jumbo air tires for the ultimate off road stroller.
CBB featured the Micralite Toro newborn system in Emerald Green in March’s Luck of the Stylish stroller ensemble story and our Reviewer Nancy reviewed the Micralite Fastfold last June. It’s easy to see why this stroller has caught the eye of Celebrity Moms in the know.
