Have a spring or summer baby on the way? There are many new products coming soon that we know you’ll be excited about. We are! Here are a few of our favorite upcoming 2012 products.
Baby Jogger City Mini GT
The City Mini GT is probably one of the most anticipated strollers for 2012. It is the beloved City Mini but souped up with forever-air tires, taller seat back, adjustable handlebar, new handbrake and easier access to the basket. This is one stroller to watch out for! Woot! Woot!
Baby Jogger Versa
Baby Jogger didn’t stop with the City Mini GT for 2012. They are bringing out the Versa as well. This is a luxury stroller with reversible seat that can be folded easily with the seat attached whether it’s forward or parent facing.
Orbit Baby Double Helix
Orbit Baby will be debuting their first-ever double stroller – the Orbit Baby Double Helix – in Spring 2012. If you thought the G2 was a head turner, wait until the Double Helix.
It’s the car seat with the funny name and hefty price tag. The Foonf is clek’s first (and highly anticipated!) convertible car seat. This convertible car seat is suitable from 6+ months, has a rear-facing weight limit of 45 lbs and can accommodate a forward-facing rider up to 65 lbs. The seat sports a rigid LATCH system and features clek’s new REACT safety system. Will it be a game changer? We’ll wait and see in summer 2012.
Valco Baby Spark
What we think might be the Valco’s biggest hit of 2012 is the Spark. The Spark will be Valco’s do-it-all stroller. Plus, it comes in a Twin! The stroller seats will not only reversible but will transform into a bassinet. Is that not enough? The stroller can be folded with the seat forward or rear-facing and the twin stroller will allow you to have one seat reversed and one facing-forward or both facing forward or both parent-facing. It will have rear air-filled tires, adjustable handlebar and easy access to basket from both ends. We knew you would like it! The Spark has a projected arrival of June 2012 and will retail around $450 for the single and between $600-$700 for the twin.
Valco Baby Zee
First up in 2012 for Valco Baby will be the Zee. The Zee will be Valco’s “hybrid” stroller that is lightweight but also all-terrain. Weighing in at only 18 lbs, this stroller sports front swivel wheels, rear suspension, compact fold, automatic lock, and large canopy. Plus, the Zee will take a bassinet, snack tray, infant car seat (with the adapter) and turn into a double with a Joey Toddler Seat or Hitchhiker riding board.
Peg Perego Siesta High Chair
Peg Perego is adding a brand new high chair to their family of baby gear in 2012. It’s called the Siesta and it is stocked with features. If you know the Peg Perego Tatamia, it’s very similar EXCEPT it doesn’t have that manual swing option.
The Siesta has a reclining seat, one-handed removable tray, compact fold, wheels to move it here or there, a t-bar (that is connected to the chair NOT the tray!) and an adjustable footrest. Plus, it will come in four fun colors: orange, brown, cream and lime. The Peg Perego Siesta will be available in early 2012. To see the Siesta in action and to check out more new products from Peg for 2012, check out our Sneak Peek Video HERE.
The bloom zen will be the newest luxury stroller for the well-to-do. This amazing stroller has a one-handed retracting fold that makes it the world’s slimmest and simple to move full size stroller. The Zen will start at $799 and will be available in early 2012.
A new luxury stroller from Quinny that has great features and looks cool. We are talking reversible seat, easy open/close, fabulous push, fun colors…and much more. Expected to hit stores in February 2012.
If you want an easy-to-use playard, 4Moms has you covered starting in early summer 2012. It’s called the Breeze because it is seriously the easiest playard to open and close. Grandma-can-do-it-blindfolded-easy!
Bugaboo Snack Tray
If you are a Bugaboo owner and your little rider has been dying for a snack tray, you are in luck. The Bugaboo Snack Tray is available this month and will satisfy those mid-ride munchies. The Snack Tray (cup holder) will replace the belly bar and snap into one side. It will only fit the Cameleon, Frog, Gecko and the Donkey. Sorry, Bee owners – this one isn’t for you! This “tray” can be a single cup holder or you can snap in the second piece for snacks as well.
Babyhome is ready to take the US stroller market by storm with their Emotion stroller in March 2012. This new-to-the-US company is bringing all their fabulous baby products to the US but we are most excited about the Emotion Stroller. This lightweight (12 lbs!!) stroller will have an easy book fold, large basket, adjustable seat and footrest, easy push AND will come with accessories such as a rain guard, mosquito net and traveller bag! Sounds like a winner in our book!
