Love this stroller -- but note differences between colors!
on September 10, 2012
I love this stroller for the same reasons as everyone else (compact, great upright fold, lightweight, easy to carry/transport, comfortable for baby, high seat position, good quality, great price -- even includes a raincover, and looks great). I originally bought it in red, but returned it because I saw a better price elsewhere. I bought it in orange, without realizing that there are two different models of this stroller available (you can tell them apart by color). I thought it would be helpful for people to know the few differences between the two.
- The newer model is only available in red or black. It has an adjustable footrest that doubles as a carseat adapter. The footrest also flips up, sort of turning the stroller into a bassinet. The recline mechanism allows for 4 distinct reclines, from almost flat to almost fully upright.
- The older model is only available in orange, green, brown, or grey. It does not have the car seat adapter or adjustable footrest. The recline mechanism is different, allowing any angle of your choice, except that the range is smaller than on the newer model -- it cannot go quite as flat or as upright. For this reason, they advertise the old model as being for 3-4 months and up, while the newer model is advertised as suitable for newborns.
I was surprised to see these differences, since it is not described as an old or new model, and the red, black, and orange versions were all being sold for the same price (half of MSRP!) at Albee Baby. I love the orange color, and our Safety 1st Designer 22 carseat doesn't fit in the newer model, anyway, so we're keeping our orange Presto.
