Pros:Nice looking
True rubber wheels
Happy with Graco strollers in the past

Cons:Frame has too much plastic, more aluminum would be better
Color is not gender neutral

The Bottom Line: Less expensive than it looks with many nice features


We are car-free people in a metro city.  Any stroller is used heavily by us.  For four years we have used a sturdy aluminum framed Graco LiteRider stroller and we have worn it down to nothing.  No complaints, mostly overwhelming compliments, and now with a new baby soon to arrive, it is time for a new stroller.

Lesser priced strollers were either too light weight or the seat fabric was a slippery polyester with a slight forward slant.  After a good deal of hunting, we bought the Soho edition of Graco's Metrolite stroller line. 

The Graco Metrolite Soho Stroller is mostly brown with some green accents.  [PLEASE NOTE -- IN REAL LIFE THE GREEN IS DARKER THAN IN THE PHOTO ABOVE].  It is sharp looking and a good match for a boy baby.  In my opinion, it is "more boy" than it is gender neutral.
 
The Graco Metrolite Soho Stroller has much plastic in its frame.  Will it last 4 years, only time will tell.  However, the Soho has greater adjustability and is foldable thanks to its plastic press-release hinged frame.

The Graco Metrolite Soho Stroller has a much wider wheel base than the LiteRider.  It is less tippy.  And unlike less expensive strollers with hard plastic toy-like wheels, the Graco Metrolite Soho Stroller has true rubber wheels which have better grip, and offer a quieter, smoother ride.

The Graco Metrolite Soho Stroller has drink trays for both baby and parent.  The seat area for the baby has an infant harness system so a very small baby can be seated and remain secure.  Our old LiteRider had no such thing and our small baby had to stay laying down until he was older.  There are two clear plastic view windows in the canopy and a nice big carry basket under the seat.

The Graco Metrolite Soho Stroller arrived in a fairly compact box and required assembly.  The 40-page Spanish/French/English owner's manual serves as the assmbly instructions.  Sadly, it has no photos -- only drawings -- and the drawings are sometimes difficult to follow.  I used youtube to obtain help and put the stroller together with a little trial and error -- but there was nothing major that could not be solved.

Support from Graco in English/Spanish/French is available via the web and a toll free phone number.  Interestingly, support via fax is only available in French.   

We bought this from Albee receiving it within 48 hours (amazing).  We added some small items to the order to receive free standard shipping.
