What do Benjamin Travolta, Isabella Damon, Marion & Tabitha Broderick and Naleigh Heigl all have in common (besides having celebrity parents, of course) — they’re all riding around in style in Cybex strollers.
New to American shores, the European-designed strollers are becoming a hit with new parents in the U.S. — and I got my hands on one this week to try out with my 5-month-old son Callum, so I could find out what all the fuss is about!
Callum and I plodded around all winter in a heavy and clunky 3-wheel stroller with a car-seat attached — so the first thing I noticed about the Cybex Callisto was the weight. It’s seriously light. And compact too.
I even foolishly managed to fit us both through a revolving door during our first outing with the Callisto. Please don’t try that at home!
When you’re done with it for the day, the Callisto collapses into a tidy bundle that’s easily stashed into the neatest nook, cranny or closet.
Callum loves it already, particularly being able to see what’s going on and interact with the outside world, after a winter spent cooped up in a car-seat.
We’d been apprehensive about switching him into a more grown-up front-facing stroller, but thanks to it’s tilting back support, the Callisto can be used from birth, and Callum took to it with ease.
I can see why so many celebrities have opted for a Cybex. It gets a double thumbs up from Callum and I.
