Phil and Teds been busy and it seems like the new Explorer will be the next hot hot phil and teds stroller. The Phil and Teds Explorer has an all new chassis which now has a one handed folding mechanism, a feature we have seen in some single buggies but it has now come to the Phil and Teds range. Yes most moms are holding baby in one hand and only have one hand to fold a stroller! The New phil and teds explorer stroller has an improved peddle style brake system which is easy to operate. The Explorer now also shares a Vibe style follow me sun hood, this sun hood is completely adjustable and features a pop out sun visor making it much easier to shade your baby or toddler. They will actually be shaded on all angles. (No more need to purchase the protect-a-bub sun canopy to get good protection!).
The Explorer stroller can be used as a single and of course as a double. The new Explorer double kit will also now come supplied with a sun visor for the child in the back seat but does loose the ability to recline. Reclining however on the main front seat has been vastly improved upon the Sport, the Explorer now features a Dash style variable recliner a great improvement on the sport’s system.
Another major change to the Phil and Teds Explorer is the ability to use a car seat on the front of the buggy and still carry a toddler in the back, not something which was recommended in the Sport, Dash or Vibe. This has been made possible by shifting weight distribution around so the buggy will now not tip is you have the larger child in the back seat with a car seat on the front. This feature will mean the Phil and Teds Explorer is a true travel system for a baby/toddler combo. How Awesome is that?
Now to the all important colors, the Explorer will be available in 5 colours, black and red, Black and Grey, Navy and Grey, Black and Green and all Green.
The retail Price for all these great improvements is only an additional $30 higher than the sport! The New Explorer Stroller will retail at $479.99.
