After thinking about it for a really long time, DH and I decided that we need to start thinking about baby bug number two and already started to plan for it. First step….Get a maternity insurance, second step look for the best baby products out there, and I know most of you will agree with me, having the correct baby gear can make your life a lot easier.
My first baby stroller was a hand-me down from my SIL and it was a great stroller, but the second time around I want my baby stroller to be something that goes with my personality. After all, a stroller is pretty much like a car……And you usually get a car that goes with your personality and that will give you comfort and security.
Well I have been looking and looking for different baby stroller options and I have fallen in love with the Walkabye Terrani Buggy stroller and once you see the stylish European design stroller you will understand why. The first thing that caught my attention was the beautiful and really sleek designs that the stroller is offered with. The prints are unlike anything I have been able to find so far and I think I have certainly found “the“design that meets my expectations.
Walkabye has one the best print and solids selection I have found. Therefore making my mind up was not easy, but I wanted a design that would work with the ladybug and also with bug number two. Since we have no idea if it will be a boy or a girl I wanted something that is gender neutral….I picked the Olive green and pistachio combination.
The Stroller looks really good on their website but not as good as it looks in person! The stroller is fashionable, elegant, and very luxurious. It is the kind of stroller that people will turn around and look at, especially when it is set up with the canopy. The Walkabye Terrani can be found in two different formats: the Toddler Seat Package or the Infant + Toddler Package.
I received the Infant+ Toddler Package and it includes:
Infant Bassinet with canopy and apron
Toddler Seat with large canopy and safety bar.
For a limited time they are including a free matching Diaper Bag, Changing mat, and Bassinet Rain Cover with your purchase! $79.99 Value. Lucky me got the whole set and I love it!
The first thing I noticed as soon as I opened the package was the quality on the materials and how sturdy and well-built the frame for the stroller and canopy are. The Walkabye Terrani is really easy to assemble (I am very proud to report that I set it up all by myself with no help at all)! All you need to do is snap on the wheels to the frame and attach either the bassinet or the seat. Either one of them snap into the frame easily, but if you want to attach the toddler seat permanently you do need to screw in the sides at the top of the seat. The instructions are very well detailed on the instruction manual. I already loved the stroller, but once it was completely set up and I had the chance to experience what a soft ride the stroller is, I was totally in love with my Walkabye. The suspension on the stroller is just amazing!
You have the option to attach additional accessories (included with the stroller) such as the belly bar, foot muff, or rain cover.
The stroller frame is made to last. It is pretty much made with metal, and very little plastic pieces which makes the stroller a couple of pounds heavier than usual , but you are getting a product that will last you a really long period of time. Of course, that is a good trade in my book. I can’t say enough good things about the stroller quality and design. I wouldn’t recommend the use of this stroller as a travel stroller or for people that do not have an elevator and live on a high floor because of its weight, but other than that, this is a great stroller.
There are many great features included in this stroller like the handle which is insulated with a foam grip for comfortable use and can easily adjust to your desired position, using two release buttons that are in easy reach. As for storage, you get the huge basket, a pocket on the back of the canopy, and the diaper bag that easily attaches to the handle…….Plenty of space to carry all your babies necessities……..The Bar does not have a cup holder, but if I have to be honest, that is not a feature I will miss, our old stroller had a cup holder and this is going to sound silly, but DH kept forgetting he had a drink in the cup holder and ended up spilling the contents of whatever he was drinking on the stroller and got it all messy and sticky…..More than once.
The bassinet looks really nice, it has a wooden based and the mattress looks really comfortable. This is certainly a very stylish top notch stroller.
Folding the stroller is not hard, but you will need both hands, recline the seat, adjust the footrest down (not up), remove the front wheels, and then fold the stroller. (Keep in mind that it folds backwards).
High Endurance Frame
Exhibiting exceptional craftsmanship and traditional design, the Walkabye Terrani boasts a frame known for its excellent stability and performance. It comes fully assembled and ready to go.
This durable metal footrest is adjustable to multiple positions to accommodate the different reclining positions of the toddler seat. The edge has plenty of room for your child to rest their feet.
Front Swivel Wheels
Effortless ‘one handed steering’ is a luxury you can enjoy... without spending a fortune. Maneuvering around obstacles is a breeze, or lock the wheels in a forward position to drive through the elements.
You will find a spring loaded suspension on both front and back wheels, giving the Terrani a comfortably smooth ride. Absorbing bumps adds comfort for both you and your precious rider.
Large tires soften bumpy rides and allow you to use this stroller in multiple environments. Parents who take a Terrani for a spin quickly realize it has one of the smoothest rides on the market.
The Terrani features a firm, foot-operated parking brake, located on the rear axle.
Foam Insulated Grip
Designed to provide you with a soft and comfortable grip, this material also helps to insulate your hand.
Anyone can quickly and easily adjust the handle to a comfortable position. The two release buttons are located in easy reach and won’t jam like some telescoping handles.
