In a world where technology is a part of our everyday lives from the moment we wake up to the time we go to bed, it only makes sense that a stroller company adapted that technology to create the most advanced stroller ever built. That company is 4Moms, and their Orgiami Stroller is packed full of the latest tech gadgetry, starting with a self charging battery that charges as you push.
“Why do you need a rechargeable battery on your stroller?” you ask. For starters, it powers the daytime running and pathway lights on the stroller, ensuring no matter what time of day, your stroller and baby can be seen, while also giving you a better view of your path. Even more impressively, the battery charges your cell phone or mobile device, so you don’t find yourself in the middle of a walk or shopping trip with no where to plug in. But the lights and integrated cell phone charger are just the begining of the 4Moms Origami’s brilliant features.
Anyone that’s ever used a stroller knows the biggest hassle of using one is the process of folding and unfolding it. To open and to collapse the 4Moms Origami, it’s truly as simple as pushing a button. No locking or unlocking parts with your feet, no twisting handles at the same time as you turn – the power fold and unfold takes away any guesswork on whether you have the stroller set up right or collapsed fully, all with the push of a button. It’s not only brilliant, it works flawlessly, and eliminates one of the biggest nuisances when using a stroller. The Origami also folds in three dimensions, which means once folded, it notes a much smaller footprint than other similarly sized strollers. This is a huge plus for anyone tight on space either in their home or vehicle.
It’s important to note that when designing this function, 4Moms didn’t overlook the fact that sometimes, as parents, we can be slightly absentminded. And for those of us that find themselves having a forgetful day, there is an alert that reminds us if the baby is still in the stroller. In the event you ignore the alert, the Origami will simply override your request and not fold itself, thus ensuring the safety of your child.
From there, the fun gadgets continue, as the 4Moms Origami’s high tech design includes an LED screen that is incorporated into the handlebars. Displayed on your stroller screen is the time, outside temperature, steps you’ve taken and how far you’ve traveled – making workout tracking simple and automatic. The LED screen is also where you’ll see the baby display that reminds you that despite your content and quiet baby, they’re still in there, safe and sound.
As for what ages the Origami is suited for, it comes set up for infants 6 months and up, but prior to that, there are two options. Because I regularly take walks around the neighborhood with a younger baby, I use the Origami Bassinet. It clicks in easily into the base and can be used from newborn up to 6 months. It’s fitted with an oversized sunshade for protection from the sun during any time of day along with an easy carry handle, foot muff and super soft cushion liner. If you often find yourself in and out of the car, there’s also a car seat adapter that works with most Graco car seats. Once they’ve graduated from the bassinet, the Origami notes a super comfy seat in your choice of five fun colors, with a fabric that’s both comfortable and easy to clean.
Beyond its technology, I have to admit that I’m a huge fan of the 4Moms Origami’s overall design. The stroller has 6″ wheels up front and 9″ wheels in the back with all wheel suspension, making city use a pleasure thanks to its comfortable ride. The split design of the rear wheels with high hanging storage prevents you from kicking the stroller during fast-paced walks. And unless you find yourself on a shopping spree, there is plenty of storage for everything you need, with cup holders, storage pockets and the removable hanging storage bag all providing ample space to store your children’s and your personal items.
When deciding on the perfect stroller for your family, it’s important to find a stroller that suits you. And if you’re looking for the most technologically advanced stroller perfectly suited to your busy city lifestyle, the 4Moms Origami is without question the stroller that needs to be at the top of your list.
