It has been over a year since James was born (14 months) so it is about time that I write an updated review of my Stokke Crusi stroller. This past summer I have been using the "Summer kit". The summer kit features extra air-ventilation, a sun shade and a soft terry cloth lining. Because of this kit I have never been afraid of James overheating while he naps in it
This is the Stokke Stroller Seat and Crusi base in the sitting position. You can either have your child sitting upright or slightly tilted like it is in the pictures above. James prefers position 2 (slightly tilted). You can also have the stroller seat facing you, or forward facing. I communicate a lot with James so he usually faces me. When he wants to see the world around him I place the seat in the forward-facing position.
This is the stroller in sleep position. When James nods off I gently switch to this position. This is how he naps during the day.
I thought that I would be changing to a more lightweight base by now, but honestly, John and I cannot justify purchasing a new base when this one still looks brand new! I admit that in the span of 14 months we have changed the wheels once, but otherwise the stroller looks in really good shape still. We have friends that bought the newly launched Stokke Trailz stroller and I have to admit that we were a little bit jealous over the wheels on the Trailz but the Crusi has been and still is a perfect stroller for us.
My favourite things about the Stokke Crusi:
1. It is a great stroller for taller mamas.
2. The open angle helps you to see your child at all times.
3. It is really good quality.
4. The different kits! Every time that I change the kit to my stroller people ask me if I've bought a new stroller. So much fun!
I hope that this review helps! You can also read all of my entries about Stokke baby equipment here. :)
