Parental hits

Cybex Topaz pushchair


After the deep stroller comes time to buy a stroller. Every parent tired of carrying a heavy rack dreams of Fr. light and functional "umbrella". The market is full of strollers whose prices can start from just PLN 70.
I looked at my friend's Cybex umbrella, Topaz model. Then I explored the topic and ... bought it. Topaz is the average price shelf for Cybexes. However, they are much cheaper than similar class and equipment of McLaren or Peg Pere.

  • Price: new is about PLN 800, but used in good condition is already PLN 300-400

I am very sorry that I did not know about the existence of this stroller before. Then even for a moment I would not think about a classic gondola with a heavy frame. I carry my daughter under 5 months old and the umbrella works perfectly. With a clear conscience I can recommend it to everyone.

The price of the new one is quite high, but if we look at this model as the only one for our child from birth to the moment when it ceases to be needed at all, the cost ceases to be so high.

And what do you think about this wheelchair?
