Schwinn is well known for making great bikes and all kinds of fitness equipment. In addition to regular bicycles, they make exercise bikes, elliptical trainers, and recumbent bikes, just to name a few. It makes sense that they would become providers of jogging strollers.

Phil and Teds Vibe / Verve

Phil & Teds is a cutting edge company that wants to give parents cool products to use when taking care of their kids. They make functional items cool-looking while improving their style and expanding their function level. For example, instead of a double stroller that has side-by-side seats, their strollers have double kit clips so you can put another child behind the one in the front seat. Instead of having to maneuver a double-wide stroller, the one that you are using remains the same width there just happens to be another baby on board. All you have to do is take one of their inline strollers and clip on a double kit and voila – you have an inline double stroller. The Phil and Teds Vibe & Verve are the new additions to this range of inline strollers.

Phil and Teds Vibe / Verve.

They have a variety of stroller styles that have just enough of a twist as to make them fun to use and multifunctional as well. They have a selection of compact strollers which are simple to use and easy to carry around. They also have a few joggers so you have no excuse not to stay fit and healthy even though you have kids.

Some of the more interesting strollers include the Phil and Teds Vibe and Verve strollers. These strollers are the same in every way except the Vibe has 3 wheels and Verve has four wheels.

Unlike most strollers, the Vibe and Verve strollers allow you to use the double kit so that you can seat your baby facing the rear rather than front. The double kit lets you recline your baby into two different positions and includes a sun mesh that will give shade to the baby in the back seat as well as a little privacy.

These strollers can fold all the way down to half of the size that they are when opened up. When folded up it is so compact that it stands straight up and no fabrics even touch the floor. Your fabrics stay clean and you don’t even have to bend over to pick up your stroller.

There are some really cool accessories to work in conjunction with your Phil and Teds Vibe or Verve. For example, you can take the newborn carrycot, clip it on to your verve or vibe stroller and it becomes a stroller for a bassinet type of carrier. It is like transporting a cocoon with your baby snuggled up inside. Baby can stay asleep and all you have to do is lift the carrier up with the handle.

The freerider stroller board can easily attach to the axle in the back of your verve or vibe and it turns the stroller board into a scooter for your child. This was one of Phil & Ted’s award-winning designs.

These novel strollers have 23 different ways that you can ride them. You can ride around one child or two in all different combinations. They display the many different ways you can use their strollers right on their website.

The Phil and Teds Vibe & Verve seats are the tallest ones they have on a stroller. They can accommodate babies up to 41.3 inches tall or 5 years of age. The tall seat provides more comfortable reclining positions for your baby, from flat, to upright and two other positions in-between.

All the controls for your Phil and Teds Vibe and Verve are right at your fingertips starting with the handle brake you can use to stop the stroller with just one hand. You can adjust the height positions from 1 to 6 with no problems.

Both rides are comfortable, it’s just your choice of whether you prefer 3 wheels or 4 wheels. The Phil and Teds Vibe has three wheels that are 12-inches and filled with air giving it nice impact absorption and giving baby the ultimate ride when it comes to comfort. The Verve on the other hand has four wheels with two 12-inch wheels in the back and two 7-inch EVA wheels in the front. You are able to lock the front wheels on the Vibe and the Verve in the straight position or in the swivel position.

The seats on the Verve and Vibe strollers are made from a patterned Lycra that is plush and comfortable. They come in cobalt blue, cherry red and black. Your baby may cry because he is tired, or hungry, or wet, but he sure won’t cry because he’s uncomfortable.

The canopy that is on the Phil and Ted Vibe and the Verve strollers can follow the sun all day to keep your child protected from the dangerous rays of the sun. The canopy can adjust every which way you go to keep out gusty winds, dust flurries, or even a sprinkle of rain. The flick out visor goes one step further protecting baby from the harmful UV rays of the sun.

Phil & Ted give you every option to make the best use of their products; they grow as your child does.

Chicco Umbrella Stroller

Chicco (pronounced “kee-ko”) has been a reputable brand of products for babies for over 50 years. The company is the largest brand of baby products in Europe. It’s hard to go anywhere without taking your little one with you and yet it’s more and more difficult to pack everything you need and then carry it all. The Chicco umbrella stroller range is undoubtedly one the most popular on the market.

Using an umbrella stroller will definitely help lighten the load. They are light in weight and you can open and close them using one hand. The more you take your baby with you and let him explore the world the more you are bonding with him and sharing special moments together.

We all know how quickly time goes by so every moment counts. Here is a list of the Chicco umbrella stroller products that will have you spending more time with your baby than lugging stuff around.

The Chicco Umbrella Stroller Range.

The C6 Lightweight Stroller is just as its name says weighing in at just 11 pounds.

It comes with its own bag and carrying strap. It has a 5-pount harness system that is comfortably padded and the seat can recline into several positions, even flat so your baby can sleep peacefully. The round canopy can protect your little one from the elements, or you can take it off when you are indoors. The front wheels swivel but they can be locked into place. There is a nice storage basket under the seat perfect for some treats for the little one and may be a book or toy to keep him occupied.

The seat, and actually the entire stroller, can be spot cleaned with a damp sponge. This Chicco umbrella stroller is meant for babies that are at least 6 months old. The maximum weight limit is 37 pounds.

The Echo Stroller is another light stroller but it’s sturdy enough to hold larger children, up to 40 pounds. The backrest can adjust from flat for small babies to upright positions for older kids. It can take just about any kind of terrain with its thick strong wheels; it can fold up easily so you can store it at home or stash it in the trunk of your car.

There is a large storage basket underneath which is a handy place to put a few little books or toys or maybe even your phone and keys. There is a small canopy on top to shield your little one from the sun. The ergonomic handle makes this Chicco umbrella stroller a breeze to push around. And the 5-point harness keeps your precious cargo safely secured and comfy.

If you need to clean up any mess, use a damps sponge with a little soap and water.

The Echo Twin Stroller is obviously the double version of the Echo. It has all the features of the basic model and is still lightweight enough at just 34.5lbs to fold up and carry.

The Liteway Stroller is a little on the trendy side with modern color combinations that bring it to life.

It’s lightweight because of the aluminum frame. When it is folded up it has a handle making it easy to carry around and there is a hide-away boot that lets you enclose your baby in the stroller when the seat is reclined. You can go just about anywhere with the swivel front wheels that can swerve precisely when you need them to.

The rear-wheel suspension makes the stroller easily adaptable no matter what kind of surface you are riding it on. You can take the large storage basket that’s underneath and put some of your baby’s essentials in it and use it as a tote bag. The canvas has little sun roof on top.

This stroller is perfect for babies from birth up to 40 pounds.

The Liteway Plus Stroller has all the fine attributes of the Liteway Stroller with a few nice additions.

The main reason this Chicco umbrella stroller is a plus is that it can convert from your baby’s infant car seat to your baby’s stroller making it two products for the price of one. Any time you can consolidate the things you need for your baby, the better off you will be. It’s not so bad that so many items are expensive to purchase, it’s that they outgrow them too fast.

They often grow out of them before they even have the chance to wear them out. This stroller is compatible with the KeyFit30 Infant Car Seat. You can take your infant in your carrier and click it into place on the stroller. Once your baby is not an infant any longer, you can remove the car seat and it will open up to accommodate a toddler as he grows up to 50 pounds.

The Capri Lightweight Stroller weighs just 11 pounds so it is easy to carry with you at all times and among the lightest of the Chicco umbrella stroller range. You can easily keep it in your car so that it’s there whenever you need it.

There is an underneath storage space and a rounded canopy to keep the sun and wind and rain away from your baby.

The Trevi Stroller is another lightweight Chicco umbrella stroller at just 19lbs, and is recommended from newborns to 40 lbs.

It has a compact 3-dimensional fold with a one-hand fold release for ease and a fully reclining seat with five possible positions for the adjustable leg rest. Other features include a padded seat, large infant head support, cupholders for both parent and baby along with a tray for baby too.

The shopping basket is large as are the eight 8-inch diameter wheels which provide front and rear suspension, while the front wheels have lockable swivels.

The Neuvo Compact is another lightweight stroller (at 22lbs) with the features you expect from every other Chicco umbrella stroller.

Portable and easy to fold and carry, with child’s tray, cup holders, removable canopy with peek-a-boo window, storage basket, suspension and front locking swivel wheels. Importantly it has a five point safety harness, reclining seat and adjustable leg support.

And finally – how can we forget the Chicco doll stroller? Just like a baby doll carrier it is a mini version of the real thing which also folds and compacts. Now older brothers and sisters can take their doll or soft toys out for a walk with mom, dad and their younger sibling.
