Scootin’ Around, Stokke Style!

With spring peeking out from behind winter’s cold days, we have been going on lots of neighborhood walks in the evening. Elem has always liked the stroller, and we used to drive a Baby Jogger City Mini. It was a great stroller with not too many complaints. It served it’s purpose and I was happy with it until I started looking around at other strollers on the market. I noticed that most strollers kept kids so low to the ground and I really loved what some companies were doing to get kids higher up so that they could see the world and interact easier. Stokke is a forerunner in this field offering a “higher is better” approach. They have 3 different stroller models with the Stokke Scoot coming in as their most compact version.

This is Elem’s new ride!

She loves it (me too)! Besides being easy on the eyes with it’s gorgeous Norwegian design, it’s also ergonomic.  I love the grey mélange textile and it’s so easy to wipe up toddler messes! The basket is easy to access and holds all the things we need for a long day at the zoo. The Scoot really shines at the zoo, finally placing Elem high enough that she could see the animals! She loved pointing at the orangutan’s from the comfort of her stroller.

Hands down my favorite feature of the Scoot is the ability to quickly lift up the seat and change Elem from forward-facing to rear-facing. Brilliant. This is how we like to ride for most of our walks so that we can talk and interact. At the zoo we quickly clicked the seat facing out and were ready to see some animals.

I adore this stroller. It drives great, looks even better, and most of all it is safe and comfortable for Elem. I hadn’t thought that a stroller purchase was that important until I drove the Scoot!
