Anyone seen the stokke scoot in the flesh(11 Posts)
Not at all - its a Babyzen and that says it all really. Very well made, and very sturdy so far. I had the Recaro Babyzen before this, and knew I would be getting a top quality product and to date its not let me down and has FAR exceeded expectations and usefulness - on a practical level especially when space has been at a premium in our car, or when I needed something to take into somewhere where pushchairs werent allowed or the space was tight, and I didn't want to leave a pushchair outside. I can't speak for the long term but so far - and its been something like 4 months of use most days - and they are fine.
I've seen it, looked good, my only quibble with the wheels would be that they are tiny and look frankly, a bit rickety and naff!
yuletopian99 please dont entertain the Crusi as a serious tandem pushchair option. It may suit some age gaps but not many, and not for long. You need to work out what your age gap is before looking at any double pushchair TBH. The Crusi really is to be frank, awful as a tandem. The access to the lower child is poor. The seats are both fixed ie there is no way to move either child once they are in there (hopeless if a baby falls asleep and needs reclining or wakes up and needs sitting up). The lower seat is set at a recline anyway and there arent many toddlers who will tolerate being laid back. The access to the lower child is terrible especially with the carrycot being a few cms above the lower child's head, and its hard even with the seat on top. My daughter had no way out on her own - I had to help her, which hurt my back to do. The adaptor to turn the Crusi into a double is really tricky to do too. - not something I would want to do every day. The footplate is fiddly too and mine fell off when I folded it. Honestly honestly honestly honestly honestly theres many many many better double / tandem options out there. I know Stokke say its not a tandem but a "sibling" seat, but its an expensive occasional seat for a tired toddler.
The Xplory seat unit goes on the Crusi. The Scoot seat unit becomes the sibling seat unit on the Crusi.
However its a heck of a lot of money for a diabolical double pushchair which totally compromises your eldest child and to some degree your youngest. Go and buy an iCandy Peach or a Bugaboo Donkey if you are thinking towards having two close together. Dont compromise on your children for the sake of a brand name.
Just to add, I have had all three Stokke's and they all work very well on their own. But the two child option on the Crusi...honestly....I dont know what Stokke were thinking of! They claim all over their website that their pushchairs are about "connection" but how can you connect with a child thats hidden so far underneath. It takes the argument for the "child stuck underneath" to a whole new level!! Absolutely diaboloical - and believe me with something like 40 double pushchairs through my hands I feel qualified to say that!!!
I was so excited when I discovered the Scoot in Mothercare yesterday, after having the Xplory for my first child (which was too big & bulky) the Scoot was the answer for number 2..........although I've since discovered that it doesn't fit the Maxi Cosi car seat like the Xplory does & doesn't have a buggy board attachment 😞 so it looks like I'll be getting the Bugaboo Bee afterall, this fits all of the above!
No I think the scoot chassis isn't compatible with the other seats
We have the Xplory and I'm going a bit stupid over everything Stokke do! I've just seen they have released the Crusi, which could be an option if we go ahead with plans to have a second DC quite soon after the first. Can the seat units swap and change from the Scoot frame to the Xplory?
We love our scoot. DS likes to be high parent facing as I used a sling almost exclusively for his first 12 months. Just disappointed there isn't a footmuff specifically for it as I don't think universal ones will fit and people are saying the stokke one isn't good with the scoot.
I have the stokke scoot, bought from mamas and papas. I have to say, so far I really lke it. I love the xplory (my sister had it) but didn't have enough room to store it in my flat and didn't think it would be suitable for London public transport. The scoot fits on every bus I have been on and folds up very compact for storage.
It's also easy to wheel around and my baby seems to find it comfortable. She is now 8 weeks so we got it when she was 4 weeks. She doesn't like the lying down position so much but I think that's cause she is a very social baby and gets excited when we head out in the stroller.
Not sure what else to say about it. It's obviously designed to compete with the bugaboo bee, but I think it's much nicer than that and my friends that have thebee are inclined to agree.
Hallo there, I saw it a few days ago. it has arrived in a store in Greece-where i live. It quite smaller than xplory and the other new one, the cruisi.
The baby still sits high which is what I like. I have pictures and i wish i could upload them , but there is no such choice so far in this board.
I was going to get the bugaboo but now i'm in a dilemma. I think that although the stokke one is 10kilos (bugaboo is what? 7 kilos?) the price is the same as the total black version of bugaboo. And i was told you don't have to buy the iziSafe car seat. You can buy a cheaper one from a German brand called Cybex Aton.
The stroller has also a sufficient shopping space under the seat, I like that the seat goes both ways so i can see the baby or vice versa, and closing it doesn't seem all that difficult either.
I think bugaboo perhaps closes a bit easier cause you dont have to fold it-or at least i don't remember it being necessary- but i do like the design, the fact that the scoot offers a higher and a double direction seat, as well as that you don't have to buy any extras like port bebe or things like.
my sense is they made this model to "hit" the bugaboo. A cheaper more compact model for those who don't have the money or the space for the huge xplory.
Can't wait to see it too! It actually beats my no 1 bugaboo! ;)
