Stokke Xplory V3: A large 2yo and a Stokke Xplory; how to fit him inside?

charlotte bacon • 10 Nov 2021


I have recently purchased a Stokke pushchair. My two-year-old is quite large for his age and I'm worried he will be too big for it. What wright do you recommend for this, plz?

In our first year, we, at Strollbery, helped thousands of parents from 207 countries. And helping is what we've cared about the most.

We are OH-SO-MUCH into Christmas (& music) that we made a special holiday song for you to share this vibe. We hope it brings you a tiny bit of calmness (we all need) ♥️

Hey, Charlotte,

The bucket-style, shaped Stokke seat is not the smallest out there, but as a reversible seat unit, it will never be crazy roomy. Not for a larger-for-his-age 2 years old. If he will be too large for the seat, you cannot do much, really. If I should recommend at least partial remedies, I will say - dress him in multiple thinner layers and sweater + jacket instead of puffy, fluffy thick clothes. If needing a footmuff, pick your cosytoes with care and, again, don't go for a fluffy-style one (like, e.g., an Elodie Details footmuff). And, lastly, don't expect much. It's similar to too small jeans - I mean, you won't feel comfy if you're completely squeezed in them. You'll change then eventually.

Do read this article about reversible seats and think about whether you need such a seat for such an older toddler. I mean, this pram is quite bulky and heavy for such a child, I would not want to burden myself as much... Enjoy your pushchair as long as possible and after that, my suggestion would be to change for a non-reversible, world-facing lighter, more compact and more spacious stroller.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
