No other umbrella stroller is car seat compatible. In order to use it to hold a car seat, you have to recline the stroller backrest all the way down, adjust the leg rest to a 90-degree angle to help hold the car seat in, insert the car seat, hook the adapter/strap on the D-rings on either side of the stroller and snap the buckle to secure the car seat in. Pender can accommodate these car seats: Perego Viaggio, Perego Viaggio SIP, all Graco Snugride, and Chicco Ket. The straps are sold separately. See More
Most full-size strollers have one-step braking systems that stop two tires at once. However, the Pender has a brake for each tire which is a hassle for parents who are used to periodic stops and gos. It takes more time and effort to step on two separate brakes instead of just one. See More
Your child can be seated upright or laid back for a nap and still feel comfortable, as the Pender can recline into four various positions. You can easily adjust the recline to the angle you prefer using the lever on either side of the seat frame. See More
When folded, the guzzie+Guss can easily be brought anywhere using the strap attached to the frame. You can choose to hand-carry or carry it on your shoulders like how you would carry a golf club bag. This is the perfect stroller for travel since you do not need to stow it away with your other luggage and you can just unfold it whenever you need it. See More
You can use this stroller anytime and anywhere: whether it's raining, on the beach or in the city, without worrying about getting the accumulated dirt off the fabric. It can be wiped clean with a wet cloth or hand-washed using a mild detergent and water. See More
You can choose to lock the front wheels in place for when you are traversing bumpy and uneven roads or set them to swivel when you are maneuvering inside malls or the grocery store. Locked wheels will eliminate the stroller from suddenly shooting off in another direction when you hit a bump on the road. Swivel wheels will make it easy to turn corners. See More
While most umbrella strollers have short sun canopies, the Volo has a built-in sun visor and an extendable hood you can unzip from the back and spread out wide. It is made of a mesh which allows better air flow to help keep the inside cool and comfortable. See More
Children unbuckling themselves from their straps can be a source of worry for many parents. Fortunately, the Volo's buckle has a two-way aviator lock that you have to press hard simultaneously using your thumb (top lock) and index finger (bottom lock.) Your children will find it difficult to press, since they cannot exert that much force yet. See More
While most parents do not think of this as a problem, it is still good to point out that this stroller can only recline to 2 positions: the original seating position, and 6 inches more to the back when you unzip the back part of the seat. This angle is just enough to help toddlers nap. See More
During warm days, you can remove the padded seat and have your child sit on the mesh fabric underneath. This is also why the Inglesina is a favorite among families traveling to warm and humid countries. The mesh fabric has holes where air can pass through. Your child will feel cool and comfortable without the padded cushion that usually traps heat. See More
Despite Inglesina's claims that you can seat a 3-month-old in this umbrella stroller, you actually shouldn't. Babies that young don't have enough spinal support yet and forcing them to sit upright might be harmful. It's best to wait until they can sit unsupported on their own before you seat them in the Inglesina Net. See More
You can easily place and take off things from storage without them getting snagged on the bottom of the seat. The seat does not block the basket's opening because it doesn't recline that low. The basket can hold up to 25 lbs. See More
This feature is best for parents who are always in a rush. At the back of the stroller frame is a lever that you can step on, push the stroller inwards and an automatic lock will snap it in place. To unfold, remove the snap that locks it in place, pull the handle in an upwards motion and a lock will snap in place to let you know that it is locked open. See More
