THEY SEE ME ROLLIN’
- Sleep Safe Bassinet
- Rain Shield
- Bug Net
Your VISTA V2 purchase includes a sleep safe bassinet [$300 value] that can easily attach to your stroller frame for those early days when babe is always snoozing. The bassinet is sleep safe which makes it a great overnight sleep solution that allows baby to rest easily. If you are having a summer baby, you’ll love that the bassinet has great ventilation, and protection from the sun. It also comes with a bug net that fits nicely on the bassinet so that you can keep your little one cool and protected if you take them out for a short sunny stroll. Lastly, we know parents are out walking with babe rain or shine so the included rain shield that can be used on your toddler seat [there is even a special storage spot in the basket to always keep this handy] will keep you moving and out the door, so you will never have to miss a playdate.
If your partner is on the fence about this beautiful stroller—have them read that last paragraph and we know they will be sold.
Cup holderA cup holder is essential for parents who are on the go! Speaking from experience, we know that most Mama’s on maternity leave love to always keep a coffee close by. The UPPAbaby cupholder has a flexible insert that can accommodate many drinks sizes from your matcha green smoothie to those days when you NEED a Venti cold brew to function.
Bonus? You can fold your stroller with the cupholder on.
Carry-All Parent OrganizerBeverages, snacks, sunglasses, a spot for your keys, more snacks – we love that the Parent Organizer can do just that – keep you organized! If you already own the VISTA V2, you will know that the basket can hold up to 50 lbs, but we love that the organizer can keep your things up high and close to you when strolling. This is the ultimate safe spot for your iPhone, credit card, and other valuables to be stored away in the zippered compartment.
The organizer boasts one zippered exterior pocket, and 3 additional compartments to hold everything else. It conveniently attaches to the stroller handlebar with Velcro so that you can stow and go! Some buyers are often deciding between the cup holder and the organizer – and though the organizer does have an insulated pocket that can hold a drink – we like the idea of decking your stroller out with both.
Child Snack TrayAll toddlers love to snack – and that is a fact.
The UPPAbaby Snack Tray accessory is a lifesaver and provides a great snacking surface and drink holder for your rider. How does it work? Just remove your included belly bar and add the snack tray using the same attachment points. The snack tray is dishwasher safe, BPA free, and has a built-in recessed bowl making it easy for little hands to grasp at fishy crackers or puffs while on-the-go.
Cozy Ganoosh FootmuffYour stroller is your lifeline. It allows you to move your body with baby in tow for fresh air on a tough day, keeps you mingling with other Mama’s at the park, and it’s a spot for baby to nap comfortably when you are on the go.
It’s safe to say that your stroller needs to be able to keep up with your lifestyle that includes all of the elements. Now, we know the VISTA V2 has amazing wheels that can take on snow and sand—but the Cozy Ganoosh Footmuff allows you to provide your little one with protection from all of the elements – like the freezing cold Canadian winters. This ultra-plush footmuff has sherpa lining and is available in lots of colours so that you can match it to your existing stroller fabric. It has a windproof and water-repellant exterior, which will help to keep baby toasty warm no matter the elements, and also featuring a “comfort rating” of -20 F. We also love that the footmuff is available in a lightweight version that can be used once things begin to warm up.
This accessory is a must-have for those with a fur baby that needs to be walked daily – making it a definite add to your Baby Registry!
Infant Snug SeatYour included toddler seat can be used from 3 months-50 lbs – but with the Infant Snug Seat, you can use your included seat from birth! So, why a snug seat? One of the things we love about the VISTA V2 is the ability to work as a convenient travel system – no adapters needed – with the UPPAbaby MESA infant car seat. You can easily clip the car seat to the stroller frame, and go!
This is ideal for parents running into the grocery store for a few quick things – but what if you plan to browse the mall or go for a walk with friends? It’s not ideal to have your baby in their car seat for long periods [according to XYZ] of time, so the snug seat offers a solution to use your toddler seat from birth! The insert softly cradles your baby offering head and neck support until they are big enough to use the seat on its own [approx. 6 months old].
Piggyback boardAnother reason we love the VISTA?
It is an expandable stroller that can accommodate a second rider with the addition of a Rumble Seat – and a third rider using the Piggyback Board attachment!
The Piggyback Board is ideal to have once your little ones likes to start getting in and out of the stroller on outings – they can easily hop right up onto the board for a fun lift. Your “three-nager” will love feeling like a big kid and you will love the ability to keep them close. The board is like a mini skateboard – it's made of wood and has a non-slip surface and wheels that allow for it to roll along while you stroll. We love that it can be fastened away when not in use.
This is a must add to your registry – or a fun and cute 1st birthday gift.
*Can be used up to 55 lbs
Bassinet standWe shared earlier that your VISTA V2 purchase comes with a Sleep Safe Bassinet which is oh so convenient, but the Bassinet Stand allows you to keep baby nice and high and safe at your bedside for overnight sleep. Simply attach the bassinet right into this wooden stand just like you would on your stroller frame. Regardless of if you will use the bassinet for overnight sleep – the stand is great for keeping babe up off of the ground and in a safe and cozy place. Additionally, once baby has outgrown the bassinet you can purchase these handy hamper inserts to make the stand multi-purpose – and we know babies create a lot of laundry – we love a good 2-in-1 solution!
Travel bagWe love the idea of the travel bag add-on for lots of great reasons. Why leave your amazing stroller at home when on vacation?
The UPPAbaby Travel Bag allows you to bring your BFF stroller with you, without having to worry about it getting damaged along the way. By registering your stroller and stroller bag with UPPAbaby, your purchase is automatically insured via the UPPAbaby Travel Safe program. This covers any damage to your gear – though you won't have to use it as the bag keeps your stroller perfectly protected no matter where you are headed. The bag even has a special spot for your wheels and can fit the bassinet attachment as well.
Bonus points that the bag is wheeled so that you can easily navigate in the airport when required.
All Decked Out!So, what do you think? Are you ready for a stroller organization and upgrade moment just like we are? We totally love these functional add-ons, and hope you did too.
