And The Winner Is..

If you refer to my entry here, you'll know that we've narrowed down our choices to Brio Go, Teutonia Cosmo and Hartan Lite. We were in Germany last week to visit our family friend and since everything in Oslo is expensive compared to rest of the world, our another agenda was of course, to do some shopping. It's like killing two birds with one stone, except no birds are harmed. Ok, I digress.

We arrived in Stuttgart on Friday at noon, had our friend picked us up at the airport and he brought us to his home since we were staying there. We had only one whole day of Saturday to do our shopping so I've done the research months prior to this trip, surveying and comparing prices for few items namely breastpump, sterilizer, stroller, bottle/food warmer and others that I think worth buying. I've compared prices in Norwegian Krone (NOK), Ringgit Malaysia (RM) and Euro just to see which one is the cheapest option. Yes, I'm cheapskate like that. I only buy stuff if I think it's worth the money.


Come Saturday we didn't waste much time and went straight ahead to the shops. I've saved the address, the phone number as well as the items' models in my phone to keep us on track. We went to one of the shops and were disappointed to find out that the one of the strollers of our choice, Hartan Lite is not available at the shop and only available via booking. Another choice, Teutonia Cosmo was available but the colours and designs are limited and none of them we found attractive. We then said our words and told them that we would come back again after we had our lunch. After much Google-ing we found there's another baby shop nearby, albeit a bit on the high end side. Decided that it might worth checking out, went in and then I saw another stroller of our choice, Brio Go next to Bugaboo Chameleon, on display. Unknown to me, H was actually in favour of Brio Go all these while. Sadly colours were limited to teal (carry cot) and black (seat). Thinking that we didn't have much time and after much deliberation, we decided to buy it.




And here is the actual stroller that we bought and err, please excuse the mess. We pushed it all around Stuttgart and I think, people did think we were cuckoo pushing stroller full with stuff like this. Took it home via train and flight to Oslo and glad that we made the right decision. It's easy to fold, "lightweight" and yet not easily stumble like what I witness with other strollers and most importantly can be pushed on cobble stone and pavement with ease.


H was so ecstatic that he said he can't wait to push the baby in it come November. Aik, nampak gaya macam mak baby takde can nak tolak je ni?

Moose, how many kg is this stroller? Looks like its easy to fold/unfold..easier than chameleon..you know what, I still tak beli lagi...dunno what to choose..semua pon suka. Hehe..i can pop out anytime soon..and stroller pon xde..husband concern is practicality and of cos I can handle it myself when hes not around..

Moose said...

Aku mula2 blur apa la mercedes kancilnya. Haha. Takdela sampai tahap mercedes pun. Brio go ni biasa je. Bugaboo & stokke tu baru mercedes. Ade 1 brand lg tak ingat nama sampai 1K euro. Tu dah ferrari tu. Kat sini byk je stroller canggih manggih lagi

Moose said...

I taktau bape harga bugaboo in Msia tapi kat germany dlm 900++ euro gak. Ours is of course cheaper than that. Basic stroller comes with seat & chassis. Carry cot & Maxi cosy car seat tu byr extra. Kitorg add carry cot je

Moose said...

Chassis alone is 6kg. Carry cot+chassis dlm 11kg & seat dlm 10kg. I said "lightweight" sbb compared dgn selection of strollers that we have here. But of cos u takleh compare dgn maclaren or combi la sbb lain category. I tak bape suka bugaboo cos tayar depan die kecik sgt & kang nak tolak dlm snow susah but brio go ni just nice la.

Moose said...

Oh it's ok cos kitorg dah beli travel cot biase. Plan nak pakai tu dulu since we're planning on buying a proper cot once pindah rumah besar sikit

sumpit said...

uish, moose. Ko buat aku cuak la. Feels like tak ready nak welcome baby pulak. Stroller blum ada, travel cot belum beli, diapers tarak, nama baby pon takde lg...

Been so busy lately sampai nak beli barang pon tak sempat nak survey, and he is due anytime now.

Td konon keluar nak g survey brg pon left me breathless, kuar kejap je, brg baby tak beli langsung pon.

Ni nampak mcm alem kena keluar beli when i'm already in the hospital la kot...

Takpe take it slow. Kitorg beli stroller awl2 sbb dah alang2 pegi jemen aritu. Klo tak pegi jemen takde gak. And travel cot tu kebetulan few weeks back ade jumble sale so dah alang2 jumpa, rempat jela dulu. Klo ikutkan aku byk je belum conplete lagi. Sume plan nak beli kat Msia bulan depan, insya Allah.

Klo ko dh tak larat jalan, blh je beli online. Klo kat jemen ade few online shops yg aku tau. Tapi taktaula ade delivery ke austria ke tak
