The Mutsy Stroller Review...

Thursday, December 29, 2016

I have recently been using the Mutsy Igo stroller for miss Apple. I wanted to get a feel for the product prior to writing my review. This was the first I had owned or used the Mutsy brand.

Mutsy is a brand from the Netherlands that has been around for many, many years. Check out their website (HERE) and you will see the first design created in 1937. They are currently offering three styles of strollers. the Igo as shown below as their luxury model, the Evo and the Nexo as their compact design. 

I have the Igo in the Pure fabric.

One of the first things that was different than many brands of strollers I have used and own is the fact this folds all in one! And neatly compact. Weighing just over 19 pounds complete the stroller is manageable getting in and out of the trunk of the car. The premium feeling leather wrapped push handle and removable baby bumper bar add luxury and are on trend. I love this look!!

At first I felt the push to be different feeling compared to what I am used to but not long into use of the stroller I got used to it. It has a sturdy weighted feel. Many men like that solid stroller feel. 

The Pure edition fabric comes with 100% cotton lining and 100% recycled PEET fabric. Making it a great choice for consumers conscious of the environment and for parents wanting the cotton that is more comfortable for baby.

The sleek look and design has modern industrial welded metal frame.

Easy access basket.

Additional add on basket that can be clipped off and used with it's own carry handle. Great for shopping or the farmers market.

Height adjustable straps for child with 5 point harness.

Parent facing option. Seat removes and can be flipped rear facing.

Recline for baby with proper extended foot rest.

Zipper on hood unzips for added sun coverage.

Beautiful styling and premium fabric. Peek a boo window on hood.

Thoughtfully designed mesh and strap when using the peek a boo window.

Padded cotton fabric makes the seat extra comfortable.

Large easy to use handle for seat recline and stroller folding. I love this!

Built in suspension and no flat tires.

Compact fold with seat attached.

note : seat must be facing out to fold complete.

Overall I have been enjoying the Mutsy Igo. I love that it goes in and out of the car so simply. The features, fabrics and accessories are great! 

Specs :

Suitable from Birth to 45 pounds
Quick fold with seat attached
Reversible seat
Front wheel suspension for extra smooth ride




If you are looking for a compact version check out the Nexo. It is perfect for everyday use and very compact for small cars and travel.

My Christmas gift picks for Apple...

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

Here are a few of my favourite things that I have chosen for miss Apple this year! Buying for a near one year old can be challenging. (Ok, challenging in the sense I want to buy her all clothes and she won't appreciate that until she is a teen!)

(Click the photos to find out more and to purchase)


My top pick is the Joovy Tricycoo! I love this little bike. We already set ours up and the boys took Apple for a test spin. (she won't remember she saw it already! haha!) It has a great sun shade and easy push handle for the parent. Once your child is older it converts to a simple tricycle.


The perfect foam chair by Monte Design. When I owned my shop these were always a top customer pick for Christmas and birthday gifts! Not your old ugly shag chair that you see around. These modern and clean design kids chairs suit your home beautifully and are super durable.


Maileg toys are so dreamy! I love the little clothing and how you can collect them. I plan on building up Apple's stash so when she is a few years old and we invest in a doll house she will have the best Maileg collection. I got mine at www.alittlebundle.com


I am guessing Apple should be walking near Christmas and knew the boys favourite thing when they learned to walk was pull toys. This one by Plan Toys is super cute! 


Blabla dolls are my favorite to collect for my littles. They are the perfect plush to have in the crib and look so cute in their room. Kingsley still has his dolls we bought from when he was little.


We already own this Kidkraft white kitchen. It is one of Apple's favorite things to play with in our house! I get asked what brand and where to buy every time we show it. I linked it to Amazon which usually has the best prices. It also comes in pink if you want something really girly. (We did white because Kingsley wanted to play with it.)


I don't believe in toys having a gender attached to them. My big boys played with dolls and kitchen sets and I will for sure be getting Apple trucks and cars! I bought this track for Kaeden years ago and it was the best! The price is great on it too!


Ok, so this one is more for me! I want it for her nursery! I just love the look and it can be a ride on play item. Land of Nod has so many dreamy toys. (We asked Grandma and Grandpa for this one.)


I love this lion so much I had to add it to the list. I think it is the cutest ride on rocker ever! Although we are maxed out on her Chrsitmas gifts I may need to snag for her first birthday. Another Land of Nod amazingly cute toy!


We recently were at a family members house and Apple played AND played with this dino toy! The top pops the balls off and she loved catching them and placing them back on. The price is reasonable too! A great gift for under 20.00

 Kleynimals Rattle
The Kleynimals rattle is something we own but I put it on our list because it is a favorite. The metal chimes perfectly and I think she likes it extra because she thinks it isn't a real toy. It is more like something mommy usually takes away.

We just discovered these tiny dolls. Apple already got the mini baby and I plan to add a couple so she has a little baby collection. They are adorable little dolls by Carolle. They also have tiny outfits available including a bunny suit!



This nifty ball pit design is great! It turns into a trampoline when your little one is older. Apple tried it out last weekend at a Santa event and loved playing in the balls. I know from experience with the boys they love the trampoline too. (Made by Smart Trike who also has a great baby-toddler push trike- linked HERE)
