Stroll and Stow

strollaway.bmpTired of tripping over strollers in your foyer? Today, Kate reviews the MetroTots StrollAway, a big solution for small apartments (or anyone who wishes to stow their stroller easily and inconspicuously). Read on for Kate’s review, as well as to learn how to win a StrollAway of your own!
“Part of me really envies my friends with big houses. The garages, the basements, the attics, the playrooms - all that space, all that storage, all that room to spread out and run around and - if one is so inclined - hide the mess.

Another part of me really appreciates the discipline that my city-living apartment requires: with limited storage, I am required to constantly purge, tidy, and minimize. As everyone knows, though, baby and toddler gear doesn't necessarily lend itself to minimizing, as the car seats and strollers and portable cribs all mount up.

Happily for those of us who live in small spaces, MetroTots has developed a great solution for one part of the problem: how to tuck away strollers when not in use. The StrollAway - an ingeniously designed, well-built metal gizmo - hangs inconspicuously over the back of a door (I'm using the closet in my daughter's room) and provides a discreet hook for a folding stroller. The StrollAway can accommodate a number of different types of strollers and is designed to hang safely without screws or nails. If you find yourself with a stroller that's blocking your foyer or rolling in your front hall, give the StrollAway a try.”
