Buying a stroller may be one of the most important purchases an urban parent can make. After all, your stroller is guaranteed a daily workout, and your city commutes are likely to involve narrow halls, busy roads and stairs (lots of stairs). So you want your little one’s set of wheels to be up to the challenge — that means, light, easy to handle and sturdy. Since summer is finally upon us and we know you’ll be taking your babe all around town, we are partnering with our friends at Maclaren to give away their latest edition of the Mark II.
The Mark II has been around for generations and is a favorite among busy, city parents. That’s because it offers the comfort and convenience you need to handle the hustle and bustle of big cities like a boss. At only 7.3 pounds, this stroller remains the lightest on the market. Even with a hefty baby in it, you’ll have no problem carrying it up and down the subway stairs; and with its easy one-hand fold, collapsing it every time you get on the bus or in a cab will be a piece of cake.
The iconic umbrella pram comes with a myriad of features — from antimicrobial handles to a convenient carry strap to a 5-point safety harness to a removable seat for easy wash. Everything about it will make both you and baby feel at ease as you’re running errands or commuting to your next location. But what we love most about the Mark II’s latest model is its new recline function, which makes for an comfier ride for your little one.
Worrying about cramming your small city apartment with yet another piece of baby gear to store away? Well… Don’t! The Mark II has a thin, compact fold and can be stowed in the tightest of spots. And if you’ve really run out of storage space (we get it, babies come with a whole lot of stuff), buy a couple of hooks and hang it behind one of your closet doors.
