Yezz conquered New York City

quinny_yezz US_2013_purplerushQuinny had an exciting day on Sunday as the new Quinny Yezz conquered New York City. 400 lucky Big Apple Moms lined the streets of Manhattan to receive a free Yezz stroller. Some Quinny fans braved the rain to line up as early as 2:00 a.m. at locations including Giggle, Albee Baby, the New York Family Baby Show and more!

The Yezz is Quinny’s latest breakthrough concept in design, style and materials. A culmination of extreme urban design, the Yezz uses innovative IXEF high performance composite material to create a highly durable yet very lightweight frame. The stroller switches from pushing to carrying and back again within seconds.

The Quinny Yezz features six interchangeable seats so parents can change the fashion easily. It is available in the following fashions: Blue Loop, Yellow Move, Blue Track, Grey Road, Red Signal and Purple Rush. For children from 6 months to 40lbs.

Features Include:

  • Approximately 11 lbs
  • Ultra compact quick fold
  • Stands when folded, includes adjustable carry strap
  • Frame is made of IXEF® material, a high performance injection molded composite fiber — allows for the stroller to be light weight and extremely durable
  • Interchangeable seats to allow parents to change the fashion
  • Available Accessories: WeatherShield
  • SRP $279; additional seats for $69

Bob Gear introduces its first four-wheel stroller the MOTION

Wed, Sep 5, 2012 1:35:06 PMFollowing BOB’s 15-year focus on its signature “jogger” strollers, the MOTION’s lightweight aluminum frame represents the company’s most compact design and  complements the BOB joggers as a daily stroller.

Made for everyday freedom, the MOTION is designed for parents on-the-go.   From the first day of parenthood, the MOTION is ideal for active family outings, including trips to the park, as well as the mall or playgroups. Helping parents juggle the chaos that accompanies parenting, the MOTION features a one-hand, quick-fold with an automatic frame lock and a padded, adjustable handlebar for effortless maneuvering.

The new stroller includes the BRITAX Click & Go integrated adapter for convenient attachment to the BOB B-SAFE in matching BOB fashions or BRITAX Infant Car Seats. When coupled with the BRITAX infant car seat adapter frame (sold separately), the MOTION is compatible with a variety of infant car seats to seamlessly create a complete infant travel system.

Appropriate for children from birth up to 65 pounds, the MOTION offers a padded, supportive seat with an adjustable head-pad, a five-point harness system and an infinite seat-recline. Durable pneumatic tires mounted on high-impact polymer wheels and a rugged independent spring-suspension system absorbs bumps in the road. An extra-large canopy with a mesh ventilation window provides an added sense of security and convenience, while a big Low Boy cargo basket holds daily essentials.

Available now exclusively at  REI.com (MSRP: $349.99), the stroller is offered in black, orange and navy.

Britax B-Ready Stroller 2012 Review and Giveaway

britax-2012-b-ready-108-a82-lOne thing you’ll start to notice when you have a toddler is that they start to out grow strollers… usually its by weight – the stroller just doesnt handle right or worst.  When most people start shopping for strollers they dont ever thing of the size their child will most likely grow to be… my wife is 5’9” and I’m 6’2” having a small child wasnt in the cards — back then the Britax B-Ready wasnt on the market but if I was having a baby today – it would certainly be one of the top choices.

Lets give you the run down on some specs.

For use with children at least 6 months old, up to 55 lbs when using the single chair.  You could use this stroller from Birth by using the B-Safe or the Chaperone infant car seats.

You might have noticed I said the single chair – thats because you have 14 combinations of how you can go with this stroller – add a second seat or maybe you need a second seat that is an infant car seat – no problem.  Check out all the combinations here.

Reversible top seat with 4 recline positions – so you could have baby facing you or facing away.

Foam-filled rubber tires so you never have to worry about a flat tire.

One big reason why you’re seeing more and more Britax strollers – not only has Britax one of the best reps for safety but the price points on these strollers are amazing! Check out some of the prices on amazon but I bet you could find these strollers at a family owned store near you too.

Do you know about Late Night Parents and a Mamas & Papas Mylo Stroller Giveaway

Hopefully by now you’ve seen a few of the dadarocks tweets or a few of the dadarocks facebook page updates, but if not you might have missed the news about Late Night Parents.  Really Late Night Parents was born from the desire for a parenting show that could be hosted at night for when those that have 9-5s could catch up or simply have the kids fast asleep to enjoy hearing the latest in parenting news and products.

I asked my good internet friend Josh Becker of DadStreet.com to take the 2nd seat and away it went… fast forward 9 weeks, we’ve had our glitches but more then that we’ve found great success and a real audience (I was worried there would be crickets). The best part is that if you’re not watching it live there is great content in watching the show in replay. The replays are up on iTunes, Vimeo, Blip, Boxee, Roku, and MomTV (along with a few others).

The show is geared for expecting parents, new parents, parents of toddlers, and parents of little kids/tweens. We really try to cover the range and by doing so we also get to help parents out with amazing giveaways.  This week we have a few great giveaways up and going up.  The biggest of which is Mamas & Papas Mylo Stroller Giveaway.

The live show is Monday Nights at 11PM est.  and I really hope you get a chance to check it out! For more information please check out http://latenightparents.com

The Maclaren Beatles Yellow Submarine Stroller – Review and Giveaway

I’m a mega-super mega fan of The Beatles, I grew up listening to their music… I grew up going to their concerts (well the remaining beatles that is…) there wasn’t anything in the baby market of strollers that really was cool for Dad until I saw this… When the Maclaren first released the Beatles Yellow Submarine stroller [Amazon] I was drooling… I had an older Maclaren, that I put it through hell – I mean this stroller was abused – we took it around to EVO Conference in Salt Lake, to Texas, to Florida, to over place we drove – its still around being no worst for the wear.  So when I got this stroller and said go test it… I was like a kid in the candy store – I beat on this stroller beyond the normal use… Its even become the stroller I’ve used this winter pushing in to snow banks, sheets of ice and its still awesome!

First the design is amazing! You can see this stroller from across the room, I get compliments on this stroller all the time – its that pretty.  Plus its SUPER Light weight. Running down the basics it has a five-point safety harness, lockable front swivel wheels and linked parking brakes. Its built on the Quest frame, features include the convenience of the one handed compact umbrella fold with carry strap (awesome for airplane trips) and a carry handle, a four-position recline, hand mesh shopping basket, height adjustable shoulder harness (so it can grow with your child). It comes with a specialty printed raincover and the hood is water resistant plus it comes with an great psychedelic-print seat liner thats reversible.  As an add on there is a foot muff [Amazon].  This stroller is a great option for babies three months (need that stable neck) to 55 lbs.

Another factor when buying a stroller beyond weight and function is going to be the warranty and all Maclaren Buggys are backed by their world-class engineering and the industry’s first Sovereign Lifetime Warranty. Which to date I haven’t had to use… really I’ve beat this stroller up… and its gone everywhere my child has in the last 3 months. One thing that I do want to bring up is that this stroller has the redesigned hinge which is now rounded so you dont have to worry about that recall or about hinge covers.

So while this looks like it’ll be daddy’s stroller one of the best parts is how light weight it is coming in at just 12 lbs my wife is usually carrying it up and down subways steps with no trouble at all.
