When you are preparing for your new bundle of joy (or a friend’s) you may dream about the ultimate baby gear. They “hey, I saw Jessica Alba using that. I want it!” or the “What stroller was Angelina’s twins being pushed around in??”
Well last year I saw what was my dream come true. I was walking in town with my family and saw this couple pushing their newborn in the most amazing piece of baby gear I had ever seen. Instead of asking the couple what their stroller was I pretty much stalked them until I caught a glimpse of the company’s name on the side.
The stroller was a Classica Pram by Inglesina! and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on one. Of course Kendall was a bit too big for it and even more so now but baby #3 will be riding in style that’s for sure.
Putting the chassis together was a pain in the butt but I was able to do it fairly quickly. The one thing I did not like was that you have to download the print the instructions from their website. I would have loved to see an instruction booklet come with the stroller. Printing a ton of pages was did not make me, or my printer ink very happy.
I love the steel frame and wood bassist. I know my baby will be safe and sound while riding in it. The canopy is large and the privacy screen (attached by velcro for easy removal) is cute and practical.
The inside of the bassist it firm yet extremely soft. The padding is thick. All inside prices are removable so you can throw them in the wash and reattached. We all know how babies like to spit up and have diaper explosions so the easy removal of the lining makes me happy.
Another love is the matching diaper bag that is included when you purchase the bassist. There is plenty of space inside for diapers, wipes, clothes and bottles. The bag strap had a thick padded area which makes feels great on my shoulders even when I fully load it. There are two hooks attached to the bag which snap onto the underside of the handle bar so you can have full use of the large chassis basket for shopping bags or other items.
Inglesina has been in business 1963 and was founded in Vicenza, Italy. They now make 3 other types of strollers and 2 styles of high chairs. No matter what Inglesina product you have you will get the same aesthetic values such as style and elegance with attention to all aspects that make their products convenient and functional to use and comfortable for the babies.
From admiring the stroller from afar to owning one I am absolutely in love with the Classica. The one thing I don’t like is that it’s hard to turn because the wheels don’t swivel. It’s hard to turn without a baby in it so I can’t imagine trying to turn while my newborn is sleeping. :/
What this pram?!?? Good! Inglesina is giving away one LUCKY reader the Classica Bassinet! You can use the bassist as a free standing sleeper or on the chassis frame which can be purchased separately for about $400.
