Everywhere we go right now, at least once every day, we get asked about our stroller and diaper bag. So, the stroller: We have a Mistral S* from German Teutonia. It’s a great stroller.
Until this week we used the stroller with the Fashion Bassinett. Having a bassinett has been very practical while Alec was small, but now he’s getting so tall that he almost doesn’t fit in it. We have also loved being able to use the adaptor to put our Graco car seat directly on the chassis since we are in and out of the car so much.
Now we’re using the regular stroller and we are very happy with it so far.
Why did we choose the Mistral S? We have tons of friends who have loved their Teutonia strollers, so the choice to go with that brand was pretty easy. As for the model, it was important to us that we could switch the handle bar over and use the stroller with the big wheels in front to get better handling in rougher terrain and when it’s snowy in Stockholm. We love the stroller, it handles well, we feel like the quality is really good, and it has just worked great for us. I would say that while I wouldn’t choose another stroller than the Teutonia, if I knew we would be spending so much time in Atlanta versus Stockholm, I would have probably preferred a lighter, less heavy duty chassis to make lifting it in and out of the car easier, and a lighter colour. We chose black keeping in mind the muck of being out and about so much in Stockholm’s four seasons. In Atlanta, I think a lighter colour would work better in the heat.
Teutonia also makes double strollers to accomodate twins or siblings.
But all in all, a really great stroller that I would DEFINITELY recommend!
