Product Description

Rated #1 luxury stroller by Consumer Reports!

The Micralite Toro strollers have mums and dads relishing in the super-smooth moves and precision performance. The unique sliding seat fully reclines to comfortably accommodate even the littlest riders (birth to 4 years). With a single-handed lift of the handle, the front wheels effortlessly retract and disappear between the rear wheels leaving the buggy freestanding and ready to be stored in an upright position. Micralite strollers are also able to be pushed with one hand due to unrivalled maneuverability. These are just of few of the features, which when combined with modern fresh colors and accessories make these strollers a beautiful combination of form and function.

Other Features include:

  • air pump, all weather hood, foot muff and zip on rain cover included
  • under seat shopping basket
  • adaptable with Maxi-Cosi Mico, Graco SnugRide and SafeSeat car seat
  • robust 12" all terrain removable pneumatic rear wheels
  • lightweight - only 19 pounds (8.5 kg)
  • Meets ASTM F833 and SOR/85-379 safety standards for strollers and carriages
  • 5 year manufacturer warranty

Customer Reviews

If you try to contact Micralite in the UK, you'll never hear back from them.

Any stroller can glide through the mall, but the large back wheels are perfect for the very bumpy sidewalks in my neighborhood.

That being said, I still highly recommend this stroller and would buy it over again.

Words can't describe how happy I am that we bought the Toro over other strollers like the Bugaboo. We've discovered with time (our son is now eight months old) just how ideal the Toro has been for us.

Having said that, though, I don't think it's ideal for everyone, and in retrospect we were lucky to get the stroller that best fit our needs: parents who live in a small, city apartment with a tiny elevator, who navigate lots of pubic transportation, and who need to open, close, and store the stroller in any number of places fast and on the go.

PROS:
- Folds flat with nothing in the basket and locks into standing position and stands on it's own that way. Ideal for small spaces, hallways, or public places, like restaurants.
- Easy three-seat position for baby who wants to sit up or lie flat (after four months)
- Can buy attachment for car seats by Graco or another company (forget which one).
- Front wheels are wider and pull in when folding stroller. This allows us to get through narrow openings without taking our child out to fold up the stroller a bit. This has saved us, as our apartment elevator us so narrow no other stroller fits through it (we tried several). The stroller wasn't meant for this, but it works well to partially fold for narrow spaces.
- Hot colors and even hotter animal print liners
- Rides great
- Easy up and down stairs with the inflated tires -- not like a McClaren which is tough on this mom's arms.
- Awesome, awesome, awesome ease of folding (practically one-handed) and getting into/out of cars, etc.

CONS:
- Can't turn seat around to face you (though the carseat attachments are meant for facing you. But the regular seat for older babies is not).

Verified Purchase
We've had the Toro for 4 months for our 1-year-old, replacing a Maxi Cosi Foray. It looks great and rides pretty well. It came with some good extras and has a line of optional accessories. Unfortunately, we could tell my son just wasn't comfortable in it. It also has some minor design flaws/frustrations that bothered us enough to buy a different stroller, a Bugaboo Bee+, which we (especially my child) are more happy with!
Pros:
- Great look! Contemporary, eye-catching color options (we got the yellow one). Too many compliments and inquiries to remember...
- Pretty nice ride due to the large, air-filled rear tires.
- Car seat adapter worked well with our existing Maxi Cosi Mico.
- The sun visor on the canopy is an understated feature.
- Stands up when folded. It's also thin; good for cramped places.
- The large rear wheels are removable for easier storage.
- The boot muff comes with it and attaches without hardware.
- The bumper bar is not detachable (safety +).
Cons:
- Can't make seat rear-facing.
- Leg room could be longer or extendable (My child is short, and his feet were already on the foot rest.)
- It is fairly easy to fold, but the front wheels have to line up perfectly within the larger wheels in order to lock easily. Otherwise, you'll have to reposition the front wheels and/or squeeze the frame firmly to lock in place. (This frustrated my petite wife a lot.) Also, the basket essentially needs to be empty to fold easily.
- The standard handles can adjust positions in one rotational direction only. They are not height-adjustable. Even the multi-position handles (optional) don't fully address the need to adjust handle height.

In response to the other review the stoller will tip if your bag is on the handlebars and you remove the child..however this is true of every Maclaren and umbrella stoller out there. You have to take your bag off

The virtue is it truly is lightweight. I live in the city and I can carry my big boy in his stroller up the subway stairs by myself..unlike several luxury or full size strollers. AND I can also walk my weimeraner and steer the stroller with one hand..unlike many umbrella types. So it works for me.

And it's small in my small apartment.

My two criticisms are that the front wheels have a pretty wide spread and I slammed into a lot of curbs and chair legs and stuff before I got used to it. But now I do it well.

Second I don't know on what planet it is a "one handed fold" It definitely takes two hands unless I'm missing something. I'll have to check youtube for a demo!

All in all a great stroller at a great price (especially if you skip the carrycot and just get a car seat adapter. I got the carrycot and barely used it).

I did a lot of research before purchasing the Micralite Toro, and I have to say, it does everything I hoped it would: It's lightweight, maneuverable, portable, comfortable for my son to ride in, easy to fold and park, and beautiful.

BUT! Micralite has the worst customer service I've ever encountered, anywhere. They no longer have a US distributor, so if you call Scandinavian Child (which purports to be the US distributor) with any warranty/parts questions, they won't be able to help you. If you try to contact Micralite in the UK, you'll never hear back from them. (I've written them three polite e-mails over the course of three weeks, and haven't heard a peep back -- and I'm having a real problem with the stroller, one that prevents me from using it.)

If you're going to spend $500 on a stroller, you should be able to contact a human being -- preferably a friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful one -- when something goes wrong, as something inevitably does.

I also have a Bumbleride Indie, which is too big for urban use (in my opinion), but which is a far better-designed stroller overall, and I've always been thrilled with the laid-back helpfulness of their customer service. I intend to chuck the Micralite and get another, lighter-weight Bumbleride instead. You'd also be much better off, in my opinion, with a Bugaboo.
