  • I got the Babytrend Expedition from BabysRUS and I LOVE it. I get compliments on it everywhere I go, people think it's $700 but it was $150!! I know at least 3 other moms who got it and love it too.

  • I have the Jeep Jogging Stroller. It's awesome! It has built-in speakers for your iPod ...

    For some reason, I can't find it at the BRU website or Buy Buy Baby. Not sure why, I got it about a year ago from BRU and I believe they still sell them. I was trying to get a price for you ... hm ...

  • I shopped forever for a stroller at an affordable price. They are out there if you look hard. Try second- hand stores and even ebay for a used one, sometimes you get lucky. I would suggest a stroller with a fixed front wheel if you ever plan on going off road, they are much easier to get over logs etc than the movable wheel. Also take a look at the way the stroller opens if you can find one with the manual clips to open the unit get that one. I know some have the automatic springs end up breaking becuase the cheap plastic they use to make the end caps. I ended up making a stationary piece with a "c" clamp and some wing nuts. As far as the moveable handle, cup holders, shocks etc goes it is all a matter of preference, and in the end don't matter all that much. Try instep.com they have the auto clips but they are easy to stabilize if you are a little handy or just using the stroller more delicately than I do.

  • This is the one that I got. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3420745 I just bought it less than a month and a half ago and I absolutely love it. The wheel can be fixed for jogging, or released for walking/turning. My son loves the little play wheel and it's a really smooth ride. The only thing that I don't like is that it's a little bulky when folded so it's hard to get into my trunk.  It was pretty easy to put together, too.
