The phil&teds Dot and Navigator are coming!

Attention! It’s a new stroller alert! Actually is a TWO new stroller alert but we told you about one of them waaaayyy back last October.

phil&teds has been busy in 2012 and they are launching TWO more strollers. I’m not sure who is the workhorse over there – Phil or Ted – but someone is keeping everyone busy in New Zealand. :)

We gave you a sneak peek at the phil&teds Dot last year so this isn’t “breaking news” or anything. We just have a few more details.

 

phil&teds dot

Dot is the most compact phil&teds stroller to date but still offers full size seats. Dot is ideal for parents who value compactness for small spaces in the city (elevators, stairs, small apartments, car trunks…) but still want an all-terrain stroller to navigate rough terrains in the city (parks, pavement, gravel, cobblestone…).

Dot features :

  • Small…yet, with full size seat!
  • Nifty 10” wheels
  • From newborn to 2 toddlers (Inline adaptability)
  • 1 hand recline with sun hood + liner
  • 1 hand fast fold
  • Removable fabric sling
  • NEW tail free harness
  • Multi-height adjustment handle
  • Easy clean plastic footwell
  • Contoured, ventilated seat system

Price: Dot stroller: $449.99, Dot double kit: $139.99

    Oh, I can’t wait to see more of the Navigator! Face to face? Love it! Love the colors, too!

  2. My children are 2 1/2 years apart, so we assumed that our older daughter would walk once our younger one was born, and the baby would ride in our stroller. After an entire summer of carrying the baby and letting my oldest sit in the stroller when she tired of walking, I decided to give my back a break this year and invest in a double stroller. With my now four-year-old, a side-by-side wasn’t a good option, because she’s big and also likes to hop in and out often. We bought the Sit-N-Stand because they sold it locally at Target, but I had to return it because it was like pushing a train. I’m not a big person, and a 30 pound, long, clunky stroller plus sixty pounds of kids was just too much for me. I returned it. I had tried a friend’s Joovy, but now I knew that lighter weight and easier steering were critical when you’re pushing two kids. The Caboose Ultralight fits the bill. It turns easily and tightly, and the distance between the front and back wheels is shorter than on the Sit-N-Stand, so it doesn’t feel like a train. It’s also ten pounds lighter (whew!). Both my kids like it just fine, and the sun canopy actually covers them both (others didn’t).

    If you’re looking for a tandem but worried about paying the extra hundred bucks over the Sit-N-Stand (or even the extra $70 over the regular Joovy), I would say it’s worth it. Sure, it looks similar to the other two, but it is just so much easier to use. Plus–let’s face it–the design and color are just so much cooler than the Sit-N-Stand. Go for it. I was glad I did.

  3. Do you know if the second seat can be used on the existing explorer stroller?

    Hi, first of all, can I say thank you for your thorough videos on strollers! They have been so helpful. I have been looking at this stroller but can not test it locally. Are you going to be featuring a video of it any time soon? I am a little worried that the recline features on the main chair are cumbersome, but otherwise it would be exactly what we are looking for when baby #2 arrives.

  5. We have reveiewed the Dot http://blog.babygizmo.com/2012/09/spotlight-video-review-philteds-dot-stroller/ but not the Navigator yet. The recline feature is very cumbersome.

  6. I was wondering if you are planning a review of the Navigator. I’ve been looking for a thorough review and have yet to find one. Hopefully you have one in the works?!
