Traveling Tikes

Best Strollers, May 2007

Don’t let the SMALL size of this jam-packed store deter you—buying a stroller is anything but a hassle at Traveling Tikes. The staff help you navigate a huge selection of umbrella, jogger, and twin strollers from Peg-Pérego to Mountain Buggy to Maclaren. They then take their time showing you how to open the contraptions. Bryan Pulice opened the shop eight years ago because his Web site clients wanted a place to test-drive the merchandise. Now folks drop by to have tires reinflated or to check out the newest models, including the Quinny Buzz from Holland, which thanks to its reversible handlebars and easy-to-open features, has recently overtaken the Bugaboo in popularity.
