Uppa Baby 2009 Vista Rumbleseat - Coming Soon!

We are excited to inform you that Uppa Baby is coming out with their Rumbleseat which allows you to convert your VISTA stroller into a compact rear-facing tandem stroller. This all-aluminum frame seat, complete with 5-point harness, attaches in seconds to all 2009 Uppa Baby Vista Strollers.
Your child can now be a "Back seat Driver" with the new Rumble Seat. Made Exclusively for the Uppa Baby Vista Stroller, the seat snaps on in seconds and is very easy to use. The aluminum frame is high enough that your child's hands are kept safely away from the wheel.. You can also use the adapters with an infant car seat and have the Rumbleseat attached to let your newborn and toddler take a ride. You can also reverse the toddler seat and have it face the Rumbleseat so your children can face each other.
Another great perk is that you can use the Rumble Seat along with the Piggyback wheeled board at the same time turning your stroller into a triple stroller!

Perego announces a $300 price drop for Skate stroller

Wow....Peg Perego just announced a $300 price drop for their Skate stroller from $899 to $599. The "Skate stroller" was first introduced about a year ago as Perego hoped to compete in the high end niche stroller market with the likes of Bugaboo & Stokke. While I loved it's look and great features, it does not look like the public was willing to except the price. At this new $599 price, it still offers excellent value for the price but will be competing more with the likes of Quinny and Phil & Ted's. Click here to see our Peg Perego Skate Stroller Carriage.

September is Baby Safety Month. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, this month-long education campaign exists to increase consumer awareness of safety issues surrounding the safe use and selection of juvenile products. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) urges all parents and caregivers to find an inspection station in their local area to ensure their child restraint seat is properly installed. Residents of the Washington Metropolitan area can visit the Comfort1st & Babies1st child safety seat inspection station located at our Columbia Maryland store. You can also find inspection stations in their area by visiting NHTSA's Child Safety Seat Inspection Station Locator. Comfort1st & Babies1st are helping educate parents and caregivers on the safe selection and use of child restraint seats by providing valuable information for keeping baby safe in the car.
  1. For the best possible protection keep infants in the back seat, in rear-facing child safety seats, as long as possible up to the height or weight limit of the particular seat. At a minimum, keep infants rear-facing until at least age 1 and at least 20 pounds.
  2. When children outgrow their rear-facing seats (at least age 1 and at least 20 pounds) they should ride in forward-facing child safety seats, in the back seat, until they reach the upper weight or height limit of the particular seat (usually around age 4 and 40 pounds).
  3. Once children outgrow their forward-facing seats (usually around age 4 and 40 pounds), they should ride in booster seats, in the back seat, until the vehicle seat belts fit properly. Seat belts fit properly when the lap belt lays across the upper thighs and the shoulder belt fits across the chest (usually at age 8 or when they are 4'9" tall).
  4. When children outgrow their booster seats, (usually at age 8 or when they are 4'9" tall) they can use the adult seat belts in the back seat, if they fit properly (lap belt lays across the upper thighs and the shoulder belt fits across the chest).

Safety Issue on the Phil and Ted Dash Stroller

We are all so excited to welcome the new dash stroller. There is an issue with a very small percentage of dash strollers that the stroller can collapse when in use. That being the case, we as well as all other authorized Phil & Ted's dealers have been instructed to send our entire stock of Dash strollers back to the manufacturer and will await the next shipment of strollers early to mid November. Until that time no Dash strollers will be shipped. We hoped to get this resolved as soon as possible. If you are in need of a stroller immediately we will be offering our customer an exclusive "Double Your Buggy" promotion were we will send you a free 2nd seat for either the Phil & Ted's Vibe or Sport Buggy stroller. If you would like to take advantage of this offer email us at with your request and we will send you a promotional coupon. We hoped to get this issue resolved as soon as possible and will definately keep you updated!

ABC Baby Kids Expo & Maclaren Grand Tour LX Luxury Transport System

Well this is our first blog post for and what better week to start than the week of ABC Kids Expo in Los Vages. While Marc is the one at the show, I hope to share with you some of his new baby product finds later in the week. With the ever more innovative baby strollers coming out ever year I'm sure we have what to look forward to. Maclaren is introducing their new Grand Tour LX Luxury Transport System (image on the left).
The innovative GT LX incorporates new high tech features never before seen in a stroller, such as safety lights operated via remote control, and a dashboard console with 'driving instruments', including a clock, temperature gauge and Strollometer® that measures how far and how fast mom is 'strolling' her way back into shape, via a wireless sensor.
On a side note, the Grand Tour LX also commemorates the 20th anniversary of Maclaren's invention of the first travel system, the Super Dreamer, in 1989.
