whats your favorite stroller?

we've had a Chicco lightweight stroller for 5 yrs and its great cause it folds quick and is lightweight. BUT it just broke at the footstrap and I need a new one for my 2 to be 3 yr old. we go for walks alot.

what stroller do you love and why? price?

tried out a few already and I really like the 3 wheels (not joggers) looking for something that can get thru a door to a store easily w one hand. perhaps a cute print and must be good for toddlers to 5 yrs. (my 6 yr still likes to sit in the stroller we had but HE broke it. too heavy.)
quinny xtra is a like, as well as britax, & quicksmart.

UPDATE: ended up buying the $249 britax b agile (even tho i hate the foam handle- gah!) it was $138 with discounts!!

Look at baby joggers. They have high weight limits. I got the City Elite and it has a 75 lbs weight limit. I wouldn't push around a 75 lbs kid that wasn't special needs, but it is nice to have none the less. My last stroller broke under the weight limit for the stroller.

The City Elite doesn't have a foam handle. I can take a photo of the handle if you like.

I love my Baby Trend Expedition, so much that I got the 4 wheel double version of it. I don't jog with it, but it's worlds easier to open, close, navigate, push, turn, and generally get through the mall with!

i dont need it to jog, just walks and easy shopping so that may be good too. I just always really disliked bulky stroller tho- im a minimalist so big seems excessive to me LOL
