Orbit Baby G2 Stroller – Delivery Schedule

April 29th, 2010

Orbit Baby G2 StrollerWe have been receiving an average of 60 phone calls daily about the new Orbit G2 line and when to expect delivery. So, I wanted to inform you all of what is going on in the world of Orbit Baby and delivery times moving forward.

Pampered Tot

has successfully shipped all customer pre-orders dating from January through March. All new orders placed in April will be shipping on or around May 15th. The great news is that there is a very high demand for Orbit Baby strollers right now. However, that means that retailers will not have “on the shelf” stock for months. Our store, like so many others, keeps on pre-selling the goods. By the time we receive our shipments from Orbit Baby, the stock is 100% committed and pre-sold. So, my advise to all of you Orbit Baby fanatics is to find a reputable retailer that you are comfortable buying from and pre-ordering your G2 product right away! 

By the way, the product is outstanding! The improvements are incredible. Although it has been a long and frustrating wait, it’s worth it! (based on the customer feedback that we have been receiving over the past 3 weeks).

I would also like to take this moment to apologize for the lengthy delay. Although it’s out of our control, we still feel terrible that it has taken this long to get you strolling again in your new G2 stroller and/or accessories. So, thank you for sticking with us, and for sticking with the Orbit Baby brand. Should you guys have any questions about your orders, delivery times, or product information, please contact us anytime. As always, with a toll-free number, instant chat, and email, we are available 7-days a week from 8am to 10pm PST.

2010 Quinny Buzz 3-Wheel Stroller

December 2nd, 2009

New 2010 Quinny Buzz 3-Wheeled Stroller

New 2010 Quinny Buzz 3-Wheeled Stroller

So many of our customers are calling in and asking us when the new 2010 Quinny Buzz 3-wheeled strollers are coming in, and what’s different about them. So, here’s what we know;

The new Quinny Buzz

and Maxi Cosi Mico car seats will be available between late December and mid-January 2010.

Quinny lowered its price for the stroller to $499 (down from $579), a smart move given the state of the economy. The price reduction was made possible by removing a few less needed accessories from the box, such as the bug net and rain cover. Since most people don’t use these at all, why pay for them! At the $499 price, these should be flying off the shelf. Based on the emails and calls we’ve been receiving about them, we expect sales to be really strong.

The 2009 model was offered in a 3-wheel and 4-wheel configuration. The 2010 model will only be available as a 3-wheeled stroller, with an option to convert it to a 4-wheeled stroller by purchasing the 4-Wheel Accessory

 for $89.95.

If you find the standard stroller seat be be too small for your child, Quinny came out with the Buzz XL Seat

, which is a stroller seat made with a thinner layer of foam material to create more space for your toddler.

The Maxi Cosi Mico Car Seat has remained unchanged for 2010. The have added 2 new colors to help match up with the new Buzz; Breen and Choco Mint.

All-in-all, Quinny is moving in the right direction. The color selection for both the Buzz and the Mico are quite refreshing. At a more moderate price of $499, the Buzz is a very appealing choice.

Orbit Baby Stroller Review- The New G2

December 1st, 2009

New Orbit Baby G2 in Ruby Red

New Orbit Baby G2 in Ruby Red

Many of our customers have been asking about the new Orbit Baby Stroller Collection

, known as the G2 or Second Generation, so here’s the situation; Orbit Baby is taking their wildly successful stroller line and giving it a bit of a facelift. They are expanding the color pallet from 2 to 3 colors by introducing Ruby Red into the mix, and they nailed it. The color is perfect…a great addition.

For all you Orbit Baby Stroller fans out there, you’ll need to be patient. The G2 collection is only coming out in Mid-February to early March 2010. Unitl then, stock of the G1 (current version) will be hard to come by. So, if you are expecting your child within the next 10 weeks, you better hurry and get one! If you have a few months to go, holding out for the G2 will give you the following new features;

The Stroller Chassis will feautre a solid cream color, a larger cupholder, slightly different handlebar adjustments, lockable front wheels, foam filled tires (no more tire pumps needed!) and their new patent-pending QuadShock system which Orbit Baby claims is the most advanced stroller shock system on the market.

New to the  Stroller Seat, Orbit Baby has added a custom reversible infant insert (with hard outer shell so that it can be used from birth), a removeable support bar with detachable snack tray, an extendable and removable footrest and, the most impressive “3D Rotation”, the world’s first rotate -and-recline interface. Yes, that’s right parents,  you can go from forward facing incline to a rear-facing  reclined position with one easy motion. This is the only stroller seat on the market that can do this. This feature is sure to grab the attention of any Bugaboo Cameleon 

or Stokke Xplory  buyer out there and give them some food for thought.

The Bassinet will be a little deeper and offer a removable apron. The Toddler Car Seat and Car Seat Base will remain unchanged from the G1 model.

All in all, I think Orbit Baby is making some significant strides forward in the ever-competitive luxury stroller market. Being an engineering-minded company, their products are always thoughtfully designed and offer great features that every parent is looking for when buying a stroller.

UPDATE: The New G2 line is finally available for Pre-Order

Maclaren Stroller Recall

November 25th, 2009

Quest Sport Coffee Brown with Blue

We have had several inquiries lately about the Maclaren stroller recall, so I thought I would weigh in on the topic and help shed some light.

The issue is with all 9 Maclaren stroller models, new and old.

The recall was voluntary and it was issued because 12 kids had their finger tips amputated when their little fingers got stuck in the side hinges during the stroller unfolding process. When it comes to child safety, we must all take caution. However, please keep in mind that this issue was caused during the folding and unfolding process, not while strolling. So, parents, take the appropriate measures to fix the issue, but please don’t panic. Your stroller is fine, you just need to contact your retailer or Maclaren directly to have them send you a package of hinge covers.

Maclaren is providing all retailers and stroller owners with a package of 2 Hinge Covers. When installing them, it sufficiently covers/blocks the hinge area, preventing kids from getting their fingers caught. 

Once you have these and install them, you are ready to roll again!

Maclaren is a great brand, and they make great products. I stand by them as a parent and retail store owner.
