Valco Quad Review

THE PERFECT DISNEY STROLLER


  The girls were standing in the long line for the Matterhorn, and SP 2.0 was taking a snooze. Disneyland can be tiring for little ones, so it is important to have a comfy sleeper stroller for them. Then my friend squealed, "It's Donny Osmond!" And sure enough, his handsome self and beautiful family strolled by.

He glanced down at SP asleep in the Valco Quad, and flashed that dazzling smile. 

Next up was the "Autotopia ride, and another long line. By now SP 2.0 was awake, and watching the cars.

  He seemed a little restless, so I took him out of the Quad to stretch his legs.

 Next thing you know, he takes off running. Run, run, run. Darting through the legs and by the feet of the passer bys."Excuse me, can you stop that boy?" I asked as I chased him along. No one tried. And then, he crashed smack into someone's legs, who then picked him up. I looked up to see that familiar dazzling smile. "That kid again", Donny Osmond said. And continued strolling along. "How did he notice SP 2.0 before?" my friend said. "He was sleeping!" "Well", I said, "It must have been the Valco Quad that caught his eye!"

And likely admiring all these great features!

To start with, it has the canopy that pulls all the way down to shade from those hot Disney rays. 

Then you have that mega comfy footrest, for napping or just resting.

 And the front napper bar, to rest your hat on. 

Some little side saddlebags for extra storage.

  It is small enough to zip in and out of the crowds. 

And the bouncy air tires really make for a gliding ride.

You can dial the front wheels to the position you need, Fixed, swivel, or tilt, if you want to add on a toddler seat.

 Yep, it does take that infamous Valco toddler seat, to add on a second child!

For even more versatility, you can add a snack tray, foot muff, husssh bassinet, full bassinet, or hitchhiker riding board. Think of the possibilities!

And I don't think I ever used more than one hand to push it the entire day; the steering is so easy.

The handle is height adjustable, so it works for a tall or a short person. 

 

The fold isn't bad. You lift up a couple of side latches, and a red safety catch.

 Then you step down on the basket. It kind of crumples itself into a compact little package. Ah joy! No seat removal, it's a one piece fold!

Of course I did see smaller strollers there. But if you are planning on staying well into the night, as we did, then you really need something more full-featured. The Quad was just right.

Small enough to fit on the trams, nimble enough to avoid running over people's feet, and big enough to load down with bags.

And nope, no tipping.

Want a stroller that can-do-it-all? This one is it. Not quite a light-weight, not quite the huge A/T. Perfect for loading down on long shopping trips. The push is easy, the fold is easy, the fabrics are nice, and the canopy is excellent. Storage, tons. I bought this stroller for use with the new Joey Toddler Seat that I use w/my Trimode. That is probably the only thing I don't love. The seat technically works with it, but the push isn't great and there is barely any room for the rider in the main …
