One of the biggest, and of course best, investments you make when starting a family is the stroller or travel system, really no matter which brand you settle on. That investment takes a beating from day one! Who are we kidding, family’s on the go are not just strolling along the boardwalk everyday with a shiny stroller and a happy baby! HA, we wish!! Our strollers get thrown in trunks, spit up on day after day, rammed into by other crazy mommy drivers like stroller-bumper-cars, kicked at by screaming toddlers, they have food smeared into or roll over not so pretty things like gum, mud, or the forbidden animal leftovers, and like us, our stroller is either in the trunk or left out on the porch since there’s no where in the garage or inside to store it so it’s full of pollen, birds trying to make nests in it, and cobwebs…and that’s just from one night!! And we expect our strollers to last from one child to the next, for possibly 5, 10, 15 years! Trust me, they do not last unless you take care of them!
