Movin’ Right Along…
Yes, that might be a Muppet reference. When’s the last time you watched The Muppets??? Today I am VERY happy to offer the stroller in #BabyGuyMotherLode:
The Ion by Valco Baby.
Valco has really made quite a lovely little stroller in the Ion. Upon first glance, you’ll notice the seat is shaped like an egg. Not only does this really help maximize the vertical room of the seat (fewer bumped heads!) BUT your child will get to feel like Mork from Mork and Mindy!! Sidenote: if your child needs introduction to Mork and Mindy, the series is available on DVD—you’re welcome. Extra sidenote: as a child I was the proud owner of a pair of Mork suspenders.
The adjustable handle of the Ion accommodates caregivers of various heights (as well as offering one-handed steering), much like the one-handed recline accommodates children from newborn through 44 pounds, which is actually a higher weight limit than many strollers that are double the price. The seat doesn’t reverse and face you, but you can keep an eye on your little guy via a peek-a-boo window that is actually covered with a zip-off storage pouch. Speaking of storage, the undercarriage bag on the Ion is quite generous for a stroller in this class. Winner!! The seat has a forward folding action, so unlike strollers that hinge backward to fold, the seat will stay a bit cleaner and won’t pick up garbage from your trunk during travel! When folded, the Ion also allows you to drag the stroller behind you like a sled, reducing carrying strain—even though it’s ONLY 18 POUNDS!!! An additional car seat adapter also makes the Ion compatible with the Graco, Chicco, Maxi Cosi and Peg Perego infant seats. This ability turns this stroller into a very handy travel system. Worried about strolling at night? Don’t worry: the Valco Ion has reflective material built into the stroller, making this extra safe for evening strolls.
Very few strollers of this weight and price point offer the features and quality of the Valco Baby Ion, and I am SO happy to offer this as the stroller in #BabyGuyMotherLode.
The Valco Ion retails for $399.99 and is available at many juvenile retailers.
