It can be a little challenging to go strollin' when it's snowin'.
Luckily, in our latest Q&A, Perezitos.com's stroller expert, the Jogger Mom has a couple of great product recommendations that will help out moms who live in snowy areas.
Perezcious reader Jessica asks:
I live where it is snowy all winter. I have to be able to get out of the house with my little one. What stroller would you recommend?
Here's what Jogger Mom has to say:
Yes, hibernating inside is no fun for anyone. Although getting out in the snow can sometimes feel like a daunting task. Pushing a stroller in snow is similar to pushing a stroller in sand….both work against you.
Pushing a small plastic wheeled stroller would not be your best choice. I have heard of plastic wheels exploding in the cold temperatures.
What you want to push is a large air filled tire, something similar to a bike tire. I would look for a tire size that is 12” or 16”. The 16” tires tend to be on our sportier strollers like the BOB Revolution SE.
If you are looking for an everyday stroller with a large tire you might like the Bumbleride Indie Movement edition with a 12” tire. You can still run behind this stroller I just would not recommend long miles. I hope this makes your strolls thru winter a breeze!
