With Stokke, higher is better and the new Scoot is taking compact and lightweight strolling to new heights. This compact connection stroller makes errands, travel and every day adventures extremely easy with a child in tow. With the new Scoot stroller you can always maintain a connection with your child because all Stokke strollers sit children at a higher level, which encourages parent-child interaction and eye contact and makes everything easier for you and your child – even for use as a high chair substitute at a restaurant table!

The Clek Foonf is one of the most anticipated car seats of the year. Along with the practical and convenient features and a Clek recycling program, the innovative safety features include a built-in REACT Safety System, which reduces the forces transmitted to your forward-facing child in a frontal collision by up to 40%. At the core of the REACT Safety System is the crumple zone, which is the area designed to deform and crumple in the event of a collision. The crumple zone absorbs the energy in the event of a collision, preventing it from being transmitted to the occupant of the seat.
Practicality, style, safety… along with the Crypton Super Fabrics makes this convertible car seat worth every penny.
