For the longest time, we used a bulky, heavy, and cumbersome stroller. You know...The kind that comes as a travel system with infant carrier? While this was a necessity and a God-send when my babies were smaller, lately we've found that it just takes up too much space that could be used for other things, like groceries.
That's why I was so excited to learn about a brand new modern baby gear company, Baby Cargo. While they may be the new kids on the block, they stand out for many reasons. First, they're dedicated to providing parents with super-stylish, easy to clean baby gear that offers superior performance without breaking the bank. If you've noticed the cost of fashion-forward baby gear, you've probably suffered momentary bouts of sticker shock. I know I sure have, especially since I have 2 babies that are a mere 12 months apart in age. Since I've needed to double-up on much of our baby essentials, I am always looking for a bargain. However, I am never willing to sacrifice quality to save a few dollars. With Baby Cargo, I get great value and products that are built to last.
Another thing I love about this company is that they're run by a team of designers who are also parents. Have you ever noticed that when it comes to baby gear, many of the more aesthetically pleasing designs offer very little as far as convenience features? Well, so did the folks at Baby Cargo. They've diligently worked to improve must-have products, such as strollers, making them sleek, modern and gorgeous, but also offering features to make any frazzled parent's life easier.
Here are some of the features of the Baby Cargo 200 Series stroller:
Putting baby’s comfort first, Baby Cargo’s 200 Series Stroller is inspired by the durability and versatility of modern home furnishings. With subtly natural tone-on-tone colors, cottony-soft seat and sides, a multi-position backrest, and a water-resistant hood, the 200 brings baby home in style.
- Ultra-lightweight black matte aluminum frame—sleek and rust free
- Soft sophisticated textiles, easy to clean
- Tailored designed back pocket with heavy zippers and a decorative brass Baby Cargo name plate, chic and practical for moms
- Super compact, easy to fold, perfect for vacations or trips to the shopping mall
- A multi-position adjustable backrest and adjustable leg rest
And here are some useful product specifications:
- Product Size 42 inches height x 12 inches wide x 12.5 inches deep
- Product Weight : 14 lbs.
- Seat Dimensions: 12.5 inches wide and 18 inches tall with 28 inch clearance to canopy

When our stroller arrived, which was very quickly, by the way, the first thing I noticed is that it truly is lightweight. This stroller only weighs around 13.7 lbs. In the world of strollers, that's nothing! No more lugging a heavy stroller around everywhere we go!
Another thing I noticed is that, while folded, this stroller is very, very compact. This space saving stroller takes up only a fraction of the space that our other, more bulky stroller does. This means I can finally fit all of my groceries in my trunk without having to ride with a gallon of milk or package of toilet paper in my lap. Big brownie points to Baby Cargo here!
I also love the look of the stroller. It's quite modern, yet traditional at the same time. The appearance is sleek and understated, while remaining elegant and eye-catching. The sun-shade canopy adjusts to several positions and can even be completely removed if you'd like. It really is a very versatile stroller.
Take a look!
Sophie loves climbing into her stroller, and she even does so in the house. One day, she climbed into her Baby Cargo 200 Series Stroller and watched TV. I guess she likes to lounge around in style and comfort. I can't say I blame her!
The only thing I wish is that Baby Cargo offered side by side double strollers. With 2 toddlers, this would be perfect for us! Maybe someday they'll add that to their product line for parents who have their hands full with more than one child.
A little birdie told me that the folks at Baby Cargo will soon be expanding their line to include high-chairs and play spaces. You can be sure that I will be the first in line when these are released. My highchairs are old, inconvenient, and really darn ugly! I can't wait to see what they come up with next!
