If you’re interested in a stroller that doubles as a modern art installation in your foyer, you found it. The Stokke Xplory may be sleek, trendy, and certain to get you noticed in the mall food court, but at $1,229, it doesn’t come cheap. What is does comes with, however, is an adjustable seat that online parents are raving about — along with these other features.

  • So yes, the Stokke Xplory has a seat that you can raise and lower which, at least according to one parent on Amazon, comes in handy when eating at restaurants: “I have not needed a highchair since I’ve purchased this stroller.” Others talk about this stroller like it came from DaVinci’s workshop, saying it’s nothing short of an “engineering marvel.”
  • According to Consumer Reports, the Stokke Xplory gets a thumbs up for excellent maneuverability, an adjustable handle, and one-touch brakes; not to mention you can use the storage basket as a carryall.
  • Speaking of storage baskets, Parents digs the setup: “The built-on bag (instead of a basket) keeps your supplies from rattling around.”


  • That Stokke Xplory storage basket-carryall is eye-catching but, unfortunately, it’s not very large. It’s also the only place to put anything.
  • CR adds, “The Xplory is unnecessarily complicated to use; we still have to rely on the user’s manual anytime we need to operate it.”
  • And that same Amazon reviewer from above adds, “It’s not a stroller you would want to make a quick trip to the supermarket.” Although, if you bought this model, the groceries probably come to you.
