    Baby stroller for newborn

    Capella vs Graco EDT vs Combi

    I read all reviews on baby strollers in this forum and came to conclusion above.

    Please let me know where to view/ test or buy these?
    It seems Baby R Us no longer stock Graco. And Wing On's only has one model of Capella and it does not seem to be the lightweight one mentioned.

    Or should I consider Combi instead..?

    Anyone with information for any of the three brands/models please give me your advice/comments.

    My budget:
    up to HKD2K

    Must Have features:
    Lightweight < 5kg
    Fully reclinable( up to 170 is ok)
    Open/Close with one hand
    Ease to use with frequent MTR travel

    Baby is a girl so ideally stroller with a feminie colour is preferred...thanks!

    Eugene Club has a few Graco models and Capella. Wing On and Toys R Us are best for Combi.

    I considered all 3 and Combi came out best for me. I think they are better made and have more features.

    Rach, my extensive research came to the same result as you. I checked out the three and then last minuted ended up deciding on buying the Aprica because I like the fabric better than the Combi. That was the only reason! If the fabric had of been the same, I would have bought the combi.

    the funny end to my story, i ended up buying an Aprica second hand which is an older version that the current one in Wing On and guess what? It is in the same material as the Combi. Too funny huh.

    So love, my advice, go the Combi. I believe Sarah has also decided on the Combi after her research.

    I have already trashed my Aprica a bit so will most likely end up with the Combi down the track. Great for newborn, light weight and one hand fold.

    See you soon. trace

    Yes I vote for Combi as well.

    Combi and Capella both have the reversible handle so baby can face you or face away, and a full sun canopy, which the Graco model does not have.
    The Combi seems to be better quality than the Capella and it folds easier, so it won out for me.

    I liked the Capella one best. I was just in Wing-on in Sheung Wan today and they had ummm 3 or 4 different Capellas, and a few Combis and Apricas too. AND they are having a sale at the moment so it's a good time to go and buy! I put a Capella on hold, I'm gonna go pick it up tomorrow!! Their prices are better than the Eugene VIP prices, and the staff were really helpful too.

    hi i'm using graco and found that combi is better in terms of easy manouvering and lightweight for hkg usage.Unless in europe etc...where u hv a car,it'll be easy to hv such stroller here.Best is to cHoose one that can be use from newborn till 3 to 4 yrs of age.
