|Toro Stroller in Emerald|
After testing out a Bugaboo Frog, Quinny Buzz and Maclaren Techno, my husband and I have finally found a stroller we love: The Toro MicraLite Stroller. It’s great for the city streets and even the occasional jaunt across a park lawn, but it’s not so big that we can’t maneuver it down crowded grocery store aisles. There’s something about its bull-horned handlebars that gives us a spring in our steps, too. Chad says it reminds him of a mountain bike’s handles, a definite lure for gear-obsessed dads. And our seven-month old daughter seems to appreciate how easy it is to glide the seat into its three positions. If she falls asleep, we don’t have to jar her to move into full recline-mode. Celeb moms who are Toro converts include Laila Ali and Marisol Nichols.
The Toro is pricey at
$574 $524.95, for just the stroller, or at $749 $699.95 for the Toro Newborn System, which comes with a Carrycot bassinette and is compatible with the Graco Snugride. If you’re thinking about one of the other high-end brands, definitely consider the Toro before making your investment.
