Silver Cross Dazzle Stroller Review

17 May

Hollywood Dazzle
I started out with a close-up shot of the artwork on the seat of the Silver Cross Dazzle. It’s something that doesn’t show up well in the stock photos. And each of the four colors has a different pattern. It’s kind of like a mask, or a disguise.You see the design, and the true stroller is revealed underneath. Which made it the perfect choice to take to the Halloween costume shop/haunted house. I knew I needed something as small as possible, because it would be crowded. But it also has to have a very deep recline and extendable leg rest, since SP 2.0 was still so young. And I wanted something cozy, so he could hide out a little bit, if the screaming ghouls and ghosts and goblins got too much.

The artwork extends to the back of the stroller, too.

The attention to details carries through to the canopy. There is a viewing window on the top, which is held open or closed with magnets.

And there are dual side mesh vents for air circulation, with flaps to keep the sun from streaming in. Not something I needed in the dark haunted house, though. I guess because we are so close to Hollywood, everyone goes all out on All-Hallows Eve. Animatronics with zombies removing their heads are big, caged insane people, swords through the chests, well, it gets pretty grizzly.

Good thing there is suspension on all the wheels, in case we have to rush out of there fast! But we actually lingered a loooong time. Not just to see the “spook-tacular” displays, but because the original Strollerprince was so picky in choosing his costume. The Princess grabbed a Supergirl set and called it a day. DS, on the other hand, tried on every Star Wars mask in the lot. “Do I look more handsome as Anakin or Obi-Wan? Clone Trooper or Commander Cody?” And he’s 7, sigh.
Fortunately, SP 2.0 was happily enthralled watching a giant animatronics mad scientist mixing up a fiendish brew in a test-tube.The Silver Cross Dazzle gave him a front row seat.
The Dazzle takes up very little room in the car, leaving plenty of space for all the pumkins that need to be carved, orange and black lights that need to be strung, skeletons and witches that need to be hung, and the masks, capes, boots, belts, and costumes to be donned for the big event. http://www.silvercrossamerica.com/dazzle_stroller.php
