The Luxury Stroller That Grows with Your Baby
With all the high end luxury strollers on the market, it can be headache deciding which line to go with. It is important to go with at trusted brand that has a good history and offers a wide selection. Mutsy (pronounced 'moot'-sy), a Netherlands-based company, has been producing high quality strollers since 1935. Mutsy offers luxury strollers that meet both fashion and functionability with its bright, fun colors against gray aluminum and smooth sailing at the slightest touch. Any parent will tell you that Mutsy is not just a stroller, but a full system that grows with your child from birth through the toddler stage, for sleeping, the car, park, house, and more. Mutsy offers all kinds of fun accessories for their strollers including shopping baskets, dinner trays, fun seats, and even a frame that allows the stroller seat to be used as a swing indoors.
One of our favorite things about Mutsy is its gorgeous design and fun, bright colors, which people take notice. Sporting the Mutsy at a local concert, we were stopped by a traffic officer who wanted to know the brand and make of our stroller as he was looking for something with big wheels and a sleek design. Who says dads can’t love strollers too? Aside from its aesthetics, Mutsy strollers are the epitome of maneuverability. Their strollers glide smoothly and turn easily, making store shopping a breeze. Another great feature is the height-adjustable handle, which easily slides up and down, making for a smooth transition among parents. The handle also collapses to “restaurant height” for easy parking at the dining table.
The 4Rider and 4Rider Light features Mutsy's signature profile with a contemporary minimalist look. The 4Rider displays modern single spoke wheels with pneumatic tires for an edgy and fun look that is also superbly comfortable for baby. The 4Rider comes with a fully adjustable seat with head enclosure, leg support and its own full-sized hood. As with every Mutsy frame, the 4Rider or 4Rider Light can be combined with a full-sized, cosseting bassinet and a separate, fully reclining, spacious seat. The bassinet may be removed with its sturdy carry handle and used as a sleeping cot, and has many hidden pockets to store nappies, blanket, or smaller items. But just as, if not more popular is the 4Rider Light, a lighter-weight version of the 4Rider. This is a superior baby transport choice for parents on the go. “Fashion and functionality” are offered with the light and interchangeable 4Rider Light, with its durable tires on jaunty spoke wheels for maximum maneuverability. This stroller is lightweight enough for moms to use on a daily basis for errands, walks, and trips. We selected this as an Editor’s Pick as it is light enough for moms to fold, unfold and place in the car trunk, while also proving to be an extremely smooth and easy ride over pavement, dirt, and grass. The easy gliding feel from the durable tires gives you control over the stroller while also letting it do the work instead of your arms.
One of the main things that makes the Rider so popular with parents is the versatility it offers as you can take the stroller seat out and put in a car seat adapter (sold separately) so that you can easily snap the car seat right into the frame of the Rider without having to transition your child. For shoppers, the Shopping Basket add-on (as shown in the above photo with the 4Rider Light) is a must as the roomy basket easily snaps into the frame of the stroller, offering you ample room for bags, boxes, and more. The shopping basket can also be easily removed and held by its handles for grocery shopping or going to the Farmer’s Market. Or if you want a baby rocker, simply remove the stroller seat and put in a frame called the Babysitter, which allows your baby to sway gently. For toddlers who want to get a taste of riding their own set of wheels, the Fun Seat is a great option. The Fun Seat replaces the stroller seat as the bright orange seat pops into the frame and allows toddlers to sit and ride along with handlebars. For newborns and infants, the Bassinet is a must as you snap it into the Rider frame and go for a relaxing stroll with your baby laying completely flat in a peaceful slumber. The bassinet, car seat adaptor, dinner tray, babysitter, shopping basket, fun seat and duoseat are sold separately but make the Rider extremely versatile in growing with your child.
In addition to the 4 Rider and 4Rider Light, Mutsy also offers several other amazing strollers which are extremely popular with parents. The Transporter, Easyrider (a lightweight umbrella stroller) and Duoseat (seat for two that goes onto the 4Rider frame). Not only does Mutsy make strollers, but they also have fabulous seating options for babies with their highchairs, the Easygrow, and the best booster seat on the market, the Grow-Up.
