- UPPAbaby Stroller Blankie Folded
- UPPAbaby New Cup Holder for Vista and Cruz
The most exciting stroller debut we saw at ABC Texas was the all new UPPAbaby Cruz stroller. Our parents have been huge fans of the UPPAbaby Vista for years and it is one of our best sellers. The folks at UPPAbaby decided to design a new stroller to follow on the success of the Vista. Coming this summer is the UPPAbaby Cruz! The Cruz delivers a compact stroller solution without compromising on the features of a full-size stroller. It is suitable from birth through toddler years and will be $459.99.
The Cruz takes many of the great features of the Vista and trims it down for something more compact for parents. The Cruz has a full sized reversible seat (the seat is the same size as the Vista seat) and has a one-handed five-position recline. It has an easy one step fold with or without the seat attached. Just like the Vista, it has a large canopy with UPPA’s signature extended spf 50 UV sunshade and is also compatible with an infant seat with the optional adapter bar. Another great feature is that it has two canopy positions (the canopy can easily raise and lower) to accommodate taller children. The Cruz also has a telescoping handlebar and is compatible from birth with the infant snugseat accessory.
It is different than the Vista because it is more compact: just over 21″ wide allows for easy maneuvering through doorways. Also, there is no bassinet option and no second seat option like on the Vista. It also has four smaller wheels which makes the stroller more compact. The Cruz does have a suspension system in the wheels so it still will handle bumpy sidewalks better than other compact or umbrella strollers. The Cruz is suitable up to 50 lbs.
The Cruz will be coming in four fashions: Denny (all red), Jake (all black), Sydney (yellow and gray), and Tyler (Ice Blue and Gray). The Cruz is the perfect stroller for parents looking for a reversible seat stroller with many features but don’t need the bassinet. We know the Cruz is going to be a big hit!
The other exciting stuff UPPA showed us in Texas were the new Stroller Blankies and redesigned cup holder. The Stroller Blankies will come in three fashions, Basil (greens), Imagination (reds), and Raspberry (pinks) and are not your average stroller blanket. Besides having a super soft minkie interior, the outside of the Blankie can be folded over the bumper bar has three little pouches on the outside to hold pacis, toys and snacks. It is such an innovative product combining the function of a soft blanket with a stroller “snack tray” area. And to make it better, it folds up completely into itself into a little pouch so you can throw it into the stroller basket. Perfect! The Stroller Blankies will be $39.99 and should be here early summer. The redesigned cup holder is also great news! There is currently a cup holder available for the Vista but our parents seem to have a love-hate relationship with it. The new cup holder is much more substational and it will have a clip for the Vista and the Cruz and will be $24.99 and available late summer. We are really looking forward to seeing the new products this summer. Keep your eye on the website for preorder information soon!
