Stokke Xplory

DISCONTINUED in 2005
see 1 parent review

The Stoke Xplory is a unique, high-end stroller and the best-known model of the Stokke brand. The iconic design with the single bar in the center of the chassis, the height-adjustable seat and the bag form of the shopping basket divides opinions and makes the Xplory the most popular as well as the most condemned urban stroller. The grey buttons and logos are typical for the first generation of the Xplory. Along with the second generation, it differs from the newer editions by a more rectangular shape, a shorter hood without a sun visor and a much smaller bag.

The Stokke Xplory has been awarded many design awards including the Red Dot. 2013 saw the launch of the Stokke Xplory based on the idea of raising the seat high up to promote close contact with the parent. The bucket seat is reversible, can be used as parent or forward-facing. You have three recline options when the seat is parent-facing - upright, semi-reclined and a lie flat, and two positions - upright and semi-reclined when forward-facing. The foot rest does not lift up, but its length can be adjusted. The seat is suitable for children approximately 6 months of age and older, however, using the optional newborn insert, it can be used from birth. A car seat can also be added to the chassis using the adapters (newer models don’t need the adapters). Since 2005, you can add a carrycot as well.
