Expert Review: Sleek, stylish and endlessly versatile, the Promenade stroller takes you from newborn to toddler with ease. Facing forward, facing back, stroller seat, bassinet or infant car seat, the Promenade adjusts to your growing family's needs and size with style. The best feature is its ability to easily and effectively transform each of the seats into bassinets. No need to store or buy different seats for different ages! A simple 3-position seat recline, adjustable handlebar and an expandable canopy ensure comfort for you and baby. A great turning radius and superior maneuvering gives the Promenade excellent handling. Folding is simple (though only with the main seat attached) and while it doesn't pack down small, it does stand upright and can be rolled around by the handlebar.

What We Love: Seat converts to bassinet; easy recline; sleek design; seating versatility; zip-out canopy extension on upper seat; easy maneuvering and turning.

What We Wish It Had: The ability to adjust the seats without the use of separate latches; the ability to fold the stroller with both seats attached; directions with words; storage compartments for kids and parents; included accessories like a rain shield or cup holder.

Great For: Trend setters; growing families; urban dwellers; parent who won’t need to fold the stroller often; the ability to transform seats to bassinets on the go.

Bottom Line: With 8 different seating arrangements, excellent maneuvering and a chic city style, the Promenade can grow as your family grows. But for the price, it would be nice if it came with a few accessories.

Parent Rating:
"I really like the style and design of the stroller. I love the sleek black and silver color and the simple, aerodynamic look."

"I really like seat configuration and recline options because they give my child a lot of choices. There are eight possible configurations (seven if you don't have the travel system seat). My child can ride forward facing one day and rear facing the next. To him, it is like he is in a brand new stroller each time."

"The storage under the seat is not very deep. It is adequate and accessible when the stroller is only being used with a single seat. However, with the second seat you lose most of the storage space and it becomes much less accessible."

"The Promenade handles very well. It turns without any problem and can be pushed with one hand."

"You can't fold the stroller with both seats attached. You have to remove the bottom seat to fold it. Even though the seats are very easy to remove, I found it a lot of work to have to juggle a loose seat and find a place to store it while also having to carry the folded stroller."
