View Full Version : Sit 'N Stand stroller by Baby Trend

I just saw this stroller on-line. Since I've got a 2 year old running around and another one in the oven, this seems like a good stroller option to the clunky double strollers.

Does anyone know if it's available in Ontario (Greater Toronto Area preferably)?

Any opinions on the stroller?

That stroller is definitely available in Canada - try Toys R Us or Sears. That having been said, it is not very highly recommended. I eyed it when I was considering my double needs and while it sounded great on paper, it was actually quite poorly designed. I found it too heavy, clunky and hard to steer. I also tried to stay away from travel systems because it is now known to be bad to keep babies in car seats for too long outside of actual travel time.

I would really recommend scouring the stroller board for ideas because there are countless moms looking for the perfect double. For me, if money were not too tight, I would go for a Phil and Ted's E3. It can be converted from single to double in seconds, weighs very little, has a full recline, has a car seat adapter bar, steers like a dream and is very well built. It is available in Canada (in the $500 range), but it has such a long lifespan compared to most strollers that it should be worth its price in the long-run. When you consider that you will often times want a single instead of a double, this stroller is awesome. I didn't buy one, and ended up with a Maclaren double and a full-size single in my trunk all the time - thankfully I have a big trunk, but it was a pain!

Good luck,
