Mamas and Papas Luna Mix Review

Last Day of School Luna

No doubt it's a bittersweet time. Perhaps transition always is. The end of one grade, with the promise of yet a higher one coming. Sandwiched in between, the anarchy of summer. Bedtimes are discarded; schedules disregarded.

But a new stroller means *I* maintain my rituals. And what a way to end the school year with a bang!

The long-awaited, for me anyway, Mamas and Papas LUNAMIX!!!! Don't you just love it! Orchid, with a patterned seat insert, and contrasting denim canopy.

   As we peruse the last report card, sign the final yearbooks, I am thankful that I have this ointment for disappointment.

There are a lot of strollers that look good online. But remember, pictures will tell you little, if nothing, of their performance. If you don't have a specialty store near you that carries your coveted buggy, you can't try it out for yourself. And for me, this was the case with the Luna Mix.
 I fell in love with it when I first saw it at "The 2011 BIG Stroller Roll-Out!" I only pushed it around a little. It's a lot different when I actually put a stroller through the paces on the "SQ Obstacle Course."

 And I am happy to report that the Luna Mix turned in a stellar performance!
It's kind of a cross between the Baby Jogger City Mini, and Valco Latitude. Or maybe a Valco Ion/Joovy Kooper with a single handle. It's a nice "mix" of features that work for both indoors and outdoors, and for small or bigger children.  So it's a pretty good all around stroller, if you only want one.

I've been hearing a lot of complaints lately about baskets that are hard to get in to. But as you can see, this one is pretty easy to access.

 There is a front napper bar that swings open, extendable leg rest, and deep recline. 

Best of all, it is called Luna "Mix", because you have the option of mixing different color seat pads, footmuffs, and canopies.

The handle is height adjustable, with an astonishing 18" range. There is suspension on all the wheels, which is another reason it does so well outdoors.

The fold is small and compact, and you can pop off the wheels for an even smaller fold. 

So "pop off" to get yours today, and enjoy your summer strolling!
