  • At a store. You can make sure it's good for your strength, height, needs. You can see how easy it is to fold up, open, lock, recline. You can see if it's soft enough for your baby. PLUS, you don't have to pay shipping.

  • Buy it in person. Either at a store, or yard sale/freecycle. We actually got a great deal on a Sit N Stand at yard sale. It's best to try few out before you make up your mind as well. Not all are equal!

  • In person is best. That way you can push it around and try to fold it up and pick it up. Make sure you can work all the pieces. Like the way it feels.

  • I say if you know which one you want. Compare the prices and buy from which ever has the best deals. A lot of times online has great deals. And even many stores that are in your local area have websites so you can compare the prices.
