How to choose a stroller? Raincoat for the stroller
The modern choice of wheelchairs and accessories for them is so great that it is difficult to understand this variety.
Of the design features should pay attention to the reliability of the frame and the size of the wheels. Visually determine the reliability of the design is quite difficult, but try to swing the frame, pay attention to the mount. Wheels are preferable to large size - this affects the permeability of the stroller.
Important weight of the stroller, especially if your house does not have an elevator, and the apartment is not on the first floor.
When choosing, pay attention to the fact that in pursuit of ease the manufacturer did not save on the quality of the product. In the case where weight is of great importance, it makes sense to find a wheelchair with an aluminum frame. But keep in mind that this option will be somewhat more expensive than usual.
For many, an important issue is the size of the stroller and the possibility of keeping it in the folded state. Now many wheelchairs have a folding function. This is also important for their transportation in the car. But we must take into account that the folding structures are less durable than solid ones. So if there is no special need, it is better to take a stroller without this function.
Such, at first glance, an insignificant function, like changing the position of the child (facing you, facing yourself) can be quite important. Depending on the age of the child, his temperament and even his mood, he can express a desire to either watch his mother, or have a greater view and look forward. If you can change the position of the handle or the chair itself, you can easily meet the needs of the baby.
When choosing a wheelchair, it is necessary to pay attention to the list of accessories available in the kit. Among them - a warmed cover for the legs, a bag for the necessary supplies, a bottle stand, a sun shade, a raincoat for a stroller and others. Some strollers have a more extensive list, while others, on the contrary, are not equipped with all of the listed.
A raincoat on a wheelchair is one of the most important accessories
The realities of our climate zone are such that a slicker for a wheelchair can be necessary for at least six months, from the middle of autumn to the middle of spring. Without it, a long walk in a stroller will often be simply impossible. In addition, this accessory protects against rain, it is useful in snow and windy weather.
You can buy a raincoat for a stroller and separately. It can be universal, but before acquiring it it is necessary to clarify with the seller. The raincoat on the stroller may by its design somewhat differ from the raincoat on the cradle.
The raincoat on the stroller is usually made of PVC and lined with braid. There may also be variants of a membrane fabric or a cloak.
Since the raincoat on the wheelchair can always be purchased additionally, its availability in the package is desirable, but not necessary. Equipment of the stroller, which you must pay attention to, is a basket. It will be almost impossible to replace the existing one, so make sure that it is spacious and convenient to use. Even if you do not plan to walk with your child for shopping, the basket will come in handy for carrying children's toys and things.
