Strolling into Spring: Mamas and Papas Sola Review { GIVEAWAY }






When I think about a Stroller, I think versatility, performance and functionality { is that a word?! }

The Mamas & Papas Sola is just that!

The features are endless:
From front facing { looking at parent } to rear facing { looking at the world } The Mamas and Papas Sola did not disappoint.

Upon taking the stroller out of the box for assembly I quickly found I did not receive an instruction manual. Oh YIKES!
However, one is not really needed, assembly is really easy.

I assembled the Sola myself {pats self on back} with no help from my hubs! It took all of 10 minutes tops!


I used the Sola on a quick trip to the park and I have to say I am REALLY impressed.
The Sola is really easy to fold and unfold and can be done with the seat attached or removed and it still has a nice flat fold.

A few of my absolute favorite features are the fact that the seat really does recline flat, not just a little like most strollers but FLAT! Which is perfect for when baby{ or in my case, toddler} falls asleep.

The Storage basket is a nice size however I carry a large diaper bag and while it fits I don't really have room for anything else.

The handle is adjustable which is great for the hubs and I since he is taller and could use a longer handle where I am content with a lower handle.

The Canopy! Oh my, I LOVE a large canopy to ensure that the sun is blocked out of baby's face and the Sola does just that! The canopy is HUGE!

I am in LOVE with the Sola and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great stroller at a nice price.

The Sola retails for $399 and can be found at Babies R Us, FAO Schwartz and Specialty Retailers.

The Sola is compatible with Maxi Cosi or Graco infant seats as well.
