Here at Project Nursery, we’ve been fans of the Dutch baby gear company Nuna for a while now, and we were intrigued when they revealed a new stroller that will grow with little ones from birth until their strolling days are over. I couldn’t wait to check out their latest innovation, the Nuna IVVI, at the Eventi hotel in Manhattan.
The IVVI stroller, available in August, is adjustable to four modes that will accommodate for the growing baby/toddler: carry cot, infant car seat, rear-facing and forward-facing. The included car seat adapters fit both the Nuna PIPA and Maxi-Cosi infant car seats. It’s simple to interchange the seat and carry cot with the click of a button, and the luxe Oeko-Tex fabric feels plush and durable. As a New Yorker who utilizes strollers like all-terrain vehicles, I’m very excited about the size and versatility of the IVVI’s large, under-seat basket. It’s roomy enough to haul groceries and baby gear, and it has an adjustable divider that flips up to separate belongings or folds flat to hide personal items.
Both the seat of the stroller and the carry cot feature an oversized, extendable canopy and an integrated dream drape that can be pulled down to provide extra protection from the elements for more comfortable strolling and naps. The dream drape is secured with a simple magnetic mechanism, so you can quickly adjust it for baby’s comfort. I’m also impressed with the versatility of the all-weather seat. The cozy top layer can be zipped off when you’re ready to utilize the breathable mesh seat in warmer climates.
The IVVI carry cot includes a reversible mattress pad that features both a warm, micro-knit side and a comfortable, cool weather side. I also happen to love the secret storage compartment at the foot of the carry cot, complete with a removable clutch for valuable items.
The one-handed push of the IVVI makes for easy maneuvering, and the adjustable handlebar provides comfort while strolling. It has a simple, flexible fold and stands on its own when folded. With a sleek design available in caviar, safari and ruby, the IVVI is both functional and chic.
As with all Nuna products, the IVVI is comprised of high-quality, durable materials passing extreme safety and endurance testing. For more information and to purchase the Nuna IVVI ($799.95) and carry cot ($199.95) visit Nuna’s website.
