If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck it must be a… stroller made by a baby carrier company? At least that’s how I think the saying goes. To be honest, I was fully prepared to write a semi-snarky Ergobaby Metro Stroller review about how this new travel stroller had good intentions but amateur execution. This being Ergobaby’s first foray into the European buggy market, I had realistically low expectations. However, much to my surprise, the new Ergobaby Metro Compact City Stroller totally blew me away!
Here’s the thing about travel strollers: they often reside somewhere in the safe zone, a.k.a. not the winner’s circle of strollers. Why? Because in their quest to be as compact as possible, most companies have driven their features down to be minimal and sufficient, but nothing to write home about. That’s where I think the Ergobaby Metro Buggy really stands out from the mediocre crowd. Comfort and safety for both parent and kid reign supreme for Ergobaby products, and they certainly spared no expense when transforming those values into a pushchair, giving all babywearing parents a sigh of relief. Don’t get me wrong, I love babywearing, but after 2 kids and 40+ countries traveled, give me a travel stroller for the love of all that is holy! My back thanks you.
