Introducing the arrival of the new Mutsy Transporter + a 10% off coupon code!

I am a huge fan of Mutsy strollers. I’ve been pushing Madelyn, now 3, around in a Mutsy 4Rider (read my Mutsy 4Rider review here) since she was a baby.

I just got a new Mutsy yesterday and shucks if it isn’t a rainy day today so I’m about to open and put it together in the house. I can’t wait for a sunny day.. are you crazy.. it’s a Mutsy!

Mutsy Transporter Stroller

Key features of the Mutsy Transporter stroller

interchangeability This light flexible Mutsy stroller can be used in combination with a Mutsy bassinnett, a seat cover, and different infant car seats. This buggy is characterized by its ease of operation, a height adjustable push bar and its compact volume when folded.
steering The Transporter is very flexible and maneuverable on account of 2 front swivel wheels. Using the catches above the front wheels, the swivel wheels can be locked into position. The height adjustable handlebar thrills my husband to no end because he is tall and needs the handlebar to be out further than I so he doesn’t kick the stroller every time he takes a step.
folding The Transporter can be folded quickly into a compact form. Furthermore, only minimum work is required to fold the Transporter, as you do not have to remove the seat prior to folding the frame.

More information

Netherlands-based Mutsy, recognized for its modernistic stroller designs featuring a distinctive modular, flexible system, introduces the Transporter, the company’s most affordable and lightest weight stroller to date. The new combination stroller is ideal for the cost conscious parent seeking a high quality baby transport solution.

Ideal for parents on the go, the sporty, full-size Transporter can be used in combination with a bassinet (sold separately) or Graco, Peg-Perego or Maxi-Cosi car seat (optional car seat adapters are sold separately). The bassinet and car seat adapter easily clicks onto the frame over the stroller seat, easing mom’s ability to switch between modes. Additionally, the Transporter seat can easily be completely removed for a sleek look as a pram or travel system. Two front swivel wheels offer exceptional flexibility and maneuverability. Transporter can be folded quickly into an extremely compact form with minimal effort. The four quick-release wheels are easily removable, allowing for even greater compactness and lightness when folded. The deep and padded reclining seat and large, protective hood create a comfortable and serene environment for napping or strolling on a sunny day. A foot rest provides comfort for an older child, and a convenient shopping basket is also included. Other features include height adjustable 4-position push bar and back support adjustment.

The Mutsy Transporter is available in Black, Grey, Red and Sand.

Where can I buy it? here at Amazon.com

How much is it? The recommended retail price is $399 and the optional bassinet is $150

Lil’ Tag Alongs baby blanket
review + giveaway

Lil' Tag Alongs baby blanket with link attachmentsWhat new mom doesn’t love a product that makes life a little easier? I certainly do and I recently learned about Lil’ Tag Alongs, a blanket that is sure to make any new mom’s life easierreally!
Lil’ Tag Alongs blankets perform several functions including keeping baby warm, cozy, and Lil’ Tag Alongs ensure that your baby’s favorite toy won’t fall on the dirty grocery store floor as long as it’s attached to a link on the blanket. You wouldn’t believe my reaction when Madelyn dropped a toy onto a dirty grocery store floor.  First I would gasp, then my super speedy reflexes took over as I picked the toy. Madelyn wasn’t allowed to touch it again until I sanitized it making for a miserable remainder of our grocery trip.  You’ll be happy to know that I’m not that crazy anymore… maybe in different ways but I’m not a “germaphone” (what my son used to call me) anymore.

Obviously, I would have benefited greatly from a Lil’ Tag Alongs blanket during Madelyn’s infant months.   The ability to attach Madelyn’s favorite toys to her blanket would have saved me time running from room to room looking for her favorite rattle or teething toy that I could have attached to a link on her Lil’ Tag Alongs blanket.  Toys attach to Lil’ Tag Alongs blankets using links sold at Wal-Mart and Babies R’ Us like those in the photograph here.  A lot of infant and baby toys snap right onto the links.

Lil' Tag Alongs blanket with links attached

Benefits of the Lil’ Tag Alongs:

  • Attach your baby’s Lil’ Tag Alongs blanket to your stroller using links
  • Lay the blanket on the floor and your new baby will playing with and reaching for the links.. great for doctor recommended tummy-time!
  • Your won’t have to go from room to room looking for baby’s favorite toys because they can all be attached to her Lil’ Tag Alongs blanket!

Lil’ Tag Alongs are available in large ($48) and small ($29.95) and in lots of colors and patterns.

One winner can choose a large Lil’ Tag Alongs blanket of their choice. Leave a comment below telling me what your favorite design is (use the link above) and you are entered to win! Contest ends July 10th.

Baby Planet Solo Deluxe lightweight stroller

Baby Planet has officially introduced us to ‘green’ strolling. Designing great looking and functioning strollers isn’t all Baby Planet does. They will recycle your stroller free when you are finished using it.   I don’t know of any other companies that do that.

Madelyn looks so comfortable in her Solo Deluxe stroller.  Everything from the plush seating arrangements to the easy access snack and cup holders make this stroller a comfy and stylish ride for the little ones.   What’s in it for the parents, you ask?  So many things, I can’t name them all.  Firsts of all, I have to tell that my husband who is over 6 feet tall, loves the adjustable handle bars. His feet usually kick the stroller wheels but because he can pull the handle bars up higher, he can stand further away from the stroller making it so that he doesn’t kick the wheels and have to restrict his stride when pushing.  Enough of the serious stuff though.

What I like most about the Solo Deluxe stroller is the fact that it is so feature rich but is light weight and has an ultra compact fold.  A feature I haven’t experienced before is the ‘super canopy’ as Sebastian calls it.  The canopy will lower all the way down to the nap bar to act as a sunshade. When we are walking in the morning I used to have to take a blanket to put over the canopy on our jogging stroller to keep Madelyn out of the sun, but since I’ve been using the solo deluxe stroller, I just pull the canopy down and she is fully covered. On that note, (walking) I have completely replaced my jogging stroller with the solo deluxe. The ride is smooth and the soft handle bars, cup holder and large storage compartment make it perfect for our walks as well as a trip to the mall.

Baby Planet has several designs to choose from and for all stages of your baby’s first few years.
