Stokked with my Stokke
6 years ago my first bub won this pram in a national competition, I am now using for my 2nd child and even 6 years later it does not dissapoint. Still to this day I get compliments everywhere I go. The pram is lightweight, you can chop and change the textiles and my bub loves facing forward when she is alert and loves lying back and looking at me when she is on the tired side. I would never go back to any other stroller now that I have this one, and since receiving this pram I have bought many other products which also do not disspoint.
Purchased in November 2013.
Not worth the price
This pram is stylish but not practical. A huge downfall with this is that it is easy to topple over if you decide to hang your baby bag on the stroller.
There isn't a basket/carrier for you to place your baby bag. You can buy the pouch that sits on the stroller base. However, it is flimsy and easily slides of the stroller if not attached securely.
It is a big stroller. When folded up it is chunky and takes up a lot of boot space. The brakes are annoying as you have to bend down to unlock. In saying all this, it is easy to maneuver, ad...
Great to maneuver with and stylish
I used this stroller as a nanny going from the summer, well into the winter until my boss relocated to Japan. I loved this stroller so much I will be purchasing it for my little muffin in the oven in a few months. I've used it with one hand while drinking coffee, opening doors or holding baby; when entering stores with high steps an easy push down & then up technique sent me on my way. Diaper bag was good enough for me, I packed her toys, extra diapers/wipes, food & was even able to fit a few of my things when I wanted to. It does turn heads an...d you will get asked questions even with a basic color & I thought that was cool to push around such a stylish stroller. Loved that she was so close to play with, comfort or talk to with out having to bend and if I needed to change her where there were no tables I could use the stroller easily by leaning it back a little.
Love the look and the feel of this stroller! Comfortable, easy to handle and steer, high up so baby can feel close to us. I use this if we are going to be walking for a few hours (such as going to zoo) or when we are eating out. The stroller doubles as high chair (not for eating though because it will be messy) in a restaurant. Baby is less fussy because she can see what's on the table and she feels like she is part of the adults. I have a small car (Ford Fiesta) but this fits in the boot. It won't fit much else though so whenever we plan to sh...op a lot (such as a week's worth of grocery), we will leave this at home and use a baby carrier instead. I didn't bother buying the bassinet because I bought maxi cosi mico capsule with the converter so when she was a newborn, we used the capsule instead. I also purchased the cup holder (very useful) and the Think King Mighty Buggy Hook (to hang bags/shopping bags) to use with this stroller.
I love my stokke!
Best baby item I've brought so far.
My son loves sitting in his pram, he is able to see me at a good level and interact.
I don't like the idea of people's shopping banging into him. I have a normal pram. He hates it. Cries to get out after less then 10mins.
He is unable to see past people's knee and shopping bag.
Easy to fold and unfold.
You get what you pay for.
The best pram EVER!
I use my Stokke Xplory a LOT, especially for walking and catching buses and trains and it is simply the best, most sturdy and robust pram out there. Easy to steer, even with one hand and shopping in the other! I've got a few (Phil and Teds, Steelcraft, plus grandma's Bugaboo) and this is just the easiest one to use. It's a large pram so takes up boot space, so probably not for those with a very small car. We used ours from newborn (2 weeks old) without a bassinet. The infant insert makes the base flat and we lined it with a warm blanket. Bubs w...ould sleep in it very easily. It faces you or the front, and at 18 months we still have bubs facing us. It's very high up, so you're both on a similar level and this is amazing for interaction. We've used it in cafes sometimes when a high chair wasn't available. We've even used it for nappy changes when at places that don't have change tables! The shopping bag is deceptively big - I can fit 3 large shopping bags into it (with a bit of tetris-like manoeuvring!) and you can get a nappy bag that clips on the front that is very functional and look great. And yes, of course this is the most beautiful pram out there. But it's more that just good looks, it's just so practical! Plus there's a seven year warranty!! I'd highly recommend this pram to mums and dads that spend lots of time out and about, on day trips, excursions and those that do lots of walking. Solid, sturdy, practical, great for those who are active and spend lots of time out and about. Not so great for those with small cars
Only buy this if your have a BIG car....
I have a Ford Falcon and my xplory fills up most of the boot. It is a nightmare to fold/unfold the pram when you see other parents get their prams out and go in just 5 secs.
And it is very not stable on a grassland/bumpy road. I now worry about the safety of my kid in the pram as it doesn't really have any cushioning on side/bottom.
Not sure it is a plus or not, when you are driving this pram you will get a lot of comments and attention from others which is quite annoying to me because they usually ask you to show them how the seat can be ...
This pram is a joke...
I regret paying $1500 for such a plastic pram which is heavy and bulky.
My OH insisted getting this pram because it obviously is eye catching and pretty. But it lacks of the practical side of a pram.
The push and walk on a smooth ground is fine (mind you -a $19 pram can scoot smoothly on smooth ground too).
but once you get it onto a grassland or bumpy road, your kid would feel so bumpy that he can't keep sleeping. I can't believe for this price it doesn't have any air cushioning!
The worst bit is when it comes to folding the pram into ...the car. I have a Honda Accord and it fills up my whole boot. There is no room for a bay of grocery! if you are driving a hatch and small car, please don't even think about this pram. You will need your 2nd row seat folded for most of the time.... The paints on the wheel/frame fell off so easily.
The best pram hands down!
I just bought this pram in the last week and what can I say but.... amazing.
I was very stupid to buy the new iCandy and used it for the past 3 months and decided it was a no go. I went out and bought the Stokke Xplory V3 and it's the best decision I have made for my baby.
Firstly, the design is so eye catching and everyone comments on how great the pram looks -from all ages and walks of life. The weight of the pram is what made me buy it - it's so light and easy to manoeuvre you can literally do a 360 on any terrain.
My little one is ...now 3 months old and I never bought the bassinet as he loves sitting up and looking up and around. He's 70cm long and fits in the back recline perfectly and is also at eye level when we are at restaurants. This would be one of the best things about the pram - Melbourne is not baby friendly and having a pram that's high up and easy to swivel around is great. What I also love is the fact I don't even need to collapse the base to put it in my car, it can roll on in and roll out when I need it, the chair just clicks out in a quick motion and is super comfortable for my baby.
I received gifts from my office mates during my baby shower and was surprised to have 2 strollers for my twins. I must say that this stroller, the Strokke Xplory is really amazing. I never had a hard time figuring out how to use this because it's very easy.
It run smoothly, the seats are comfortable at any age for a baby and it has the best accessories that I don't need to buy anything else to add up for my twins.
Parents should choose the right strollers for baby's convenience, safety and more importantly lifestyle. This stroller is us...eful for parents like us who travel often. We can fold it easily and can be stashed in a car trunk without taking too much space. Safety feature, check. Convenience feature, check, Accessories, check. Strokke Xplory for me is my all-around stroller. Simply amazing. Marga Efficiency
The best decision I made was purchasing this pram. It's so functional that it's a breeze to take my 12 month old out in it whether it's simply to go to the park, shopping centres, cafés/restaurants or overseas.
The height is what won me over first, my little girl loves looking around & being able to sit up high. The steering is so easy, literally with one hand if need be. Taking the pram to cafés and restaurants is great. The seat can be adjusted to sit completely upright and turns into a highchair.
I didn't bother buying the bassinet, as th...
Love this pram! Smooth steering, wheels are awesom. Love the height and good for my backpain! Love thr bassinet as i can change bubs nappies in the bassinet without having to use the dirty changetables in shopping centres.
However, pram is heavy. Hard to fold and lift into carboot. Takes up the whole space in the boot leaving tiny or no space for your shopping.
Shopping bag is small and troublesome to bend over and zip/unzip shopping bag. Accessories
VERY expensive! $50 for a cupholder which i ended up getting from the u.s for $25. Parasol a...
More expensive compared to other strollers but worth the money
The stroller is easy to manoeuvre and can be adjusted to different heights so can relieve the pressure on mothers' backs when getting your bub in and out. We just went on holidays to the Whitsundays and saw our pram tumbling off the conveyor belt from the plane onto the tarmac. Thinking that we'd find a broken stroller when we went to pick up our luggage, we were pleasantly surprised to find that our stroller didn't even have a scratch on it (unlike another stroller which we saw that was literally broken into two pieces!). We purchased our stro...ller in the USA and when we had a problem with one of the parts when we got back to Sydney, the international warranty covered our problem without any hassles through the Australian agent for Stokke. Functional, durable, international warranty Having to purchase extras such as the cup holder which should be included as a standard part
Best item I have
I put a lot of thought into buying this with my first baby, who is now 8 months old. He absolutely loves it and doesn't mind sitting in it for hours at a time. Easy to maneuver, and the storage bag can hold more than you think. Folding it up was a bit of a hassle to begin with, but with lots of practice this becomes smoother as the mechanisms loosen up.
I had a problem with the seat sliding down accidentally so I returned this to Stokke and they fixed this with no questions asked. On a side note, the Choice consumer website have assessed this pram as being unsafe... So maybe check this out before purchasing. Otherwise, I love this pram and so does my baby.
Sits up high, easy to push
One of the best pram in the market.
It is very pricy compare to other brands but it works better. Very easy to use and has good handling. The finish quality is nice, great accessories and broad colour range.
The only thing that i dont like is it is a bit hard to fold but other than that it is great product
Design, handling, easy to use
While this pram has a premium price, you get what you pay for.
The Stokke pram is designed and built solidly. The wheels run smoothly and true which make it a dream to push around. With many easily adjustable parts to the pram it is easy to use for anyone tall or short.
For those who are a bit extroverted, you do not see many of these prams around and because of the design it turns a lot of heads.
The only negative about the pram is that it is quite bulky.
Solid build, wheels run smoothly and true, adjustable to suit person pushing the pram
Fairly bulky, premium price tag
You get what you pay for!!!
We bought the Stokke because we initially liked the look of it. My baby is now 11 months and we are so glad we decided to pay the extra and buy the best for him. Because of the height of the Xplory, our son sits like royalty, above everyone and at my eye level. This makes it so much easier to talk to him when we are walking, show him different things and the interactions he gets from strangers too. We live in inner Sydney, so we often dine in cafes and restaurants. The Stokke converts to a high chair and so we never have to use the ones from th...e restaurants (which can be dirty at times). Another advantage of the height is when we are stuck for change rooms, we can change our baby in the pram. Its amazing!!! We don't have to bend down at all. Because the shopping bag is at the front of the pram and due to its design, my husband's stride is not affected when he pushes the pram (he is very tall, 188cm). The handle bar also adjusts to accommodate his height as well. There is no need to purchase the bassinet as the standard seat has enough padding for a newborn. We purchased it but didn't find it very useful. The footmuff on the other hand is wonderful. We didn't need to worry about blankets in winter, we just popped him in the footmuff and he slept soundly. Accessories we purchased included: the change bag (useful), cup holder (very useful), parasol (still undecided on how useful), footmuff (very useful), bassinet (not useful). Overall, we love the Stokke. We are expecting another baby in November so our son will be 18 months. We may need another pram but just can't bring ourselves to not use the Stokke. Height adjustable, closer to your child, easy to manoeuvre, easy to fold

Only pram to buy!
I bought this pram with the birth of our fourth child so I know what I was looking for. It is by far the best pram for parents and children! It takes into account your back,your health and mental well being as well as the child. It's very easy to use compared to anything else on the market. Compact and simple, I looked at the instructions once to put the pram together. I wish I bought this with my first child, my back would have thanked me?

Fantastic! Our best buy so far!
I bought this pram for our second baby, and it is wonderful. My first pram required both hands and a lot of grunt to steer, and this one glides along only requiring one hand (so I can keep holding hands with my toddler). The height is excellent, and fully adjustable for the 'driver's' comfort - no more leaning down just to push! I love the flexibility of seat positions, and the fully reclined rear-facing position is easily flat enough for a newborn, so you don't have to pay for the bassinette. Easy to fold and unfold, no cross-bar to accidently...kick and not too wide for aisles and supermarket check-outs like some of the other popular prams around at the moment. Love the ability to use it as a high chair as well! Position flexibility, child up high, manoevrability, quality. The only thing I don't like is the lack of a basket, but the bag at the front is much roomier than it looks, so it's a very small 'con'.
Absolutely LOVE this pram, now that I have one, I know I'll never go back to anything else....what to do when the next child comes along..?? Just hope Stokke have a second seater by then.!!
UNREAL PRAM! So important to have my new baby facing me (can face in or out) as I could see when my baby was sleeping or if positioned in an awkward angle or the blanket had come away, etc just with a simple glace.
Baby loves being able to see everything being up so high, works really well in restaurants as can easily be used as a highchair.
