One of the best things about the Stokke Xplory Stroller is the wide range of accessories available, making it extraordinarily versatile. The folks at Stokke have though of everything to make sure the stroller looks as sleek and stylish during every season and for every occasion – and, more importantly, that baby is comfortable.
Stokke Xplory Winter Kit
For cool winter weather, the Stokke Xplory Winter Kit allows you to “Stay Warm the Scandinavian Way.”
What is in the Winter Kit?
- Storm cover: create a cocoon to protect against the elements
- Hood: insulated for extra weather protection
- Handmuff with genuine sheepskin: keeps hands warm when strolling, has pocket for cell phone or keys
- Attachable sheepskin rim: genuine sheepskin for warmth – and style!
- Rear textile cover: insulated for additional protection against the cold
The rear textile cover and hood give the Xplory a full winter makeover. First, you must remove the existing fabrics and replace them via zippers and snaps to transform the Xplory into a weatherproof stroller seat.
The storm cover from the Winter Kit fits over both the Carry Cot or Xplory Seat. To use the storm cover, you have to remove the sheepskin rim from the hood so that the cover can zip to the hood, creating a cozy environment for baby. We haven’t used the storm cover yet, as the weather just hasn’t turned that nasty here in Germany. In the meantime, we are using the Foot Muff. It would be tight to fit the Foot Muff inside the zipped Storm Cover, but with the added warmth of the Cover, the Foot Muff may be unnecessary.
My absolute favorite part of the Winter Kit is the Handmuff. Of course, I want Max to be warm and cozy, but I love that the Winter Kit includes a piece that is all about parental comfort.
The Stokke Xplory Winter Kit also fits the Stokke Crusi™ Seat and can be used on all Stokke Xplory models where the seat textile also covers the back of the seat.
A Day at the Weihnachtsmarkt with Stokke Xplory Winter Kit Video
One of the hallmarks of the Christmas season in Germany is the Weihnachtsmarkt, or Christmas market. It’s not uncommon for us American tourists to visit a different Weihnachtsmarkt every weekend. The kids enjoy the rides, adults warm up with Gluhwein and everyone appreciates the good food. (Get a closer look at the Burg Lichtenberg Weihnatchsmarkt from last year.)
To give you a closer look at the Stokke Xplory Winter Kit, we make a video of our family’s trip to the Sankt Wendel Weihnachtsmarkt. Enjoy!
