Flashback Friday, Red Castle Whizz review

Red Castle Whizz
 If the Bugaboo was a three-wheeler, it might look like the Red Castle Whizz. There is no other A/T out there this elegant, with this many features, and with the price tag to match. It is beautiful, and very French. You first choose your base fabric, in either orange, chocolate, grey, or black. A matching two-sided seat pad comes with it, with a cool summer cotton on one side, and a warm winter fleece on the other. You can also select another fleece pad to change the look, in turquoise, fushcia, chocolate, orange, or light blue. The weight is a manageable 22 pounds. The seat fully reclines, by the use of two silent side zippers. This makes it good for a yong baby. (But the seat is quite large, big enough for a tall child.) Then, you have the option of rolling up the back canopy, for more ventilation. There is a built-in netting on the back, one feature I really like. This is only one of the little touches that make this a well thought-out stroller. The footrest adjusts up, to three different positions, there is a large velcro pouch on the back of the canopy, two zippered pockets on the back of the seat, a wrist strap to prevent runaways, and the bottom basket has side zippers for easier access. More nice touches: a suncover and raincover and front bar come with the Whizz. Also included are wheel covers, tire pump, and maintenance kit. muff, and a matching changing bag. The little blue pouch is a pacifier holder!  You can also buy a carrycot or footmuff, and one of several different styles of changing bags.  The frame is aluminum, and the handle is height adjustable. The steering is superb. And yes, this cute little air tires are smaller than average, for more maneuverability. The rear are 9", and the front is 8". Maybe because they have suspension,but the smaller size did not compromise it's performance on the SQ Obstacle Course. It is as rugged as it is exquisite. To fold it, you pull up a lever on the right side of the handlebar, then squeeze in the levers on both sides. It is the latest model to be distributed by Euro-Baby US, the same company that brought the Micralite to the U.S.
