Talk about intelligent design! We recently checked out phil&teds‘ new Smart Compact Stroller System ($249 or $359 with Peanut Bassinet) and we love it. And we’re not the only ones — Tori Spelling is also a fan.

This well-crafted, modern-looking stroller is compact and easy-to-use. Plus, it features state-of-the-art technology including the Aerocore seat. It’s also extremely versatile especially when you add the Peanut Bassinet, which can hold a baby up to 20 lbs.

What We Liked: The cushy, yet firm Aerocore seat pod is amazing and like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Not only is it super supportive, but it’s designed (ventilating, insulating and waterproof) to keep baby comfortable in all kinds of weather. It’s also UV resistant so it won’t crack and fade. And since it’s hypo-allergenic, you can just wipe it clean after spills.

The unfold/fold was super easy and it was a breeze to take the seat off and pop the Peanut Bassinet on. If you have a Graco Infant Car Seat, you can use it with an adapter. It also comes with a roomy shade so your little one is protected from the sun at all times.

What We Didn’t Like: At a little over 17 lbs., it’s not exactly a lightweight stroller. We suggest using it with smaller kids aged four and under.

Moms & Babies Rating: If you’re looking for a compact and easy-to-use travel stroller for your new tot, this is the one for you.

Say, didn’t I see this stroller in green on Weeds the other night?

I like the frame and the peanut bassinet but the hard plastic seat? No no no.

The stroller on Weeds was actually a Peg Perego Skate in Green Bubbles. Many products from the Italian based Peg Perego line are featured on the show. Others include the Primo Viggio Car seat in Tropical and the SDRAIETTA MELODIA bouncer, also in Tropical.

I’ve seen the smart and it is awesome! The seat is not hard- and what is great is that it is hypoallergenic, fade resistant and can even be hosed out when dirty! I love that you can switch out the seat to the bassinet or use with a carseat.

This looks exactly like the OrbitBaby G2 Bassinet.

Love the stroller but wish it came in a color other than black. I can’t imagine using that color in the baking southwest summer. I would definitely consider buying it if it came in a light color.
