Flashback to 2007 My baby is asleep in a bucket car seat, but I need to go grocery shopping. It’s dangerous to balance the car seat on top of the shopping cart, so I stick the car seat in the cart and start piling groceries around my baby… getting back to the car after the groceries were bagged was a nightmare.
Flashback to 2009 My now toddler refuses to stay seated in the child seat of the shopping cart. If only she was happily trapped into her stroller, with her cup holder, snack tray, and toy. Then maybe I could grocery shop.
Fast forward back to 2017 HELLO AUSTLEN Entourage Stroller! Where have you been all my [parenthood] life?! Everyone buys a stroller, maybe two, or even three- the stroller you keep in the car with the bucket seat adapter snap-in, then the umbrella stroller for travel or easy trips and maybe jogging stroller or double stroller once you have number two.
"So why would you add yet another stroller type to your list of needs? Because this stroller is awesome and will make your life so much easier!"
For grocery shopping alone, this stroller is worth it! The stroller has a cargo bag add-on and can hold just as much as the shopping cart, but now your baby is safe or your toddler is happily strapped in. For trips to the zoo, picnics at the park, or a day at the beach, you CANNOT go wrong with the Austlen Entourage for hauling all your stuff. No matter how much you pare down, a day at the beach requires some gear when going with kids. This stroller can actually carry a cooler! That’s right, no more dragging the cooler to the beach behind you and multiple loads to the car. You can do it in one trip!
4.5/5 hearts And while one of the only downfalls of the stroller is how heavy it is, it still maneuvers beautifully and with the ease of one hand. Lifting the fully loaded Austlen back onto a curb may need some extra hands but perhaps you can just consider it that exercise session you skipped because being a parent is exercise enough!
