Mutsy Transporter Review

Transporter to a Winter Wonderland

Stroller bells ring, are you listening,
In the lane, snow is glistening,
A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight,
Strolling in a Winter Wonderland...
It's a common Christmas need a stroller wicked enough to tackle the snowdrifts, yet your car is packed to the roof with luggage and presents. So you don't have room for a massive air tire pram. What to take, what to take...and oh yeah, the color needs to right, hmmm, gold would be nice...
Ah, it's the Mutsy Transporter! The perfect sleigh for your happy little reindeer! Folds compact enough to fit in car, yet is strong enough to glide through the snow.The Transporter also has a front napper bar, which helps keep the footmuff in, that keeps your baby toasty warm. This one is a Valco, but you can get one from Mutsy, too. Other nice features include a deep recline, height adjustable handle, and big basket. The Mutsy Transporter is a really gorgeous stroller. That you can see. But, and here is one thing you can never know from a website, unless you have someone like me to tell you... how a stroller pushes. And I am happy to report, that the Transporter is as smooth as silk. I *would* say it pushes like buttah', but that is an overused cliche'. OK, smooth as silk is, too.
Let's just say, it has a superb one-handed push, in all kinds of terrain. The wheels are small enough for indoor shopping, yet big enough for the great outdoors.In the meadow we can build a snowman,
And pretend that he's a circus clown
We'll have lots of fun with mister snowman,
Until the other kids knock him down.If a stroller could be horrified by this appalling snow joke, then the Transporter would be. But hey, in SoCal, building a snowman is not something one does very often.

  1. Hi,
    I am considering buying the Transporter, I like the size/weight and the option for a bassinet for the new born. But I have a question: the upright position of the seat looks a little reclined back, so the toddler cannot seat straight up. what do you think about it?

  2. Hmmm, didn't strike me as particularly "slouchy". I think it would be fine.

  3. I'd like to buy a Transporter, just one qouestion, what I can't find the answer.
    Is the Transporter working in a face-back position also?
