Christina sent an email to ask: I've noticed some moms/nannies pushing around strollers that have a nice FLAT basket at the bottom. A basket that would hold all sorts of packages, or even a small lazy dog. (The Bugaboo basket seems kind of useless to me). Today one passed me by, and while I could catch a glimpse of the logo, I couldn't read the brand. I think it started with a 'c'. Definately european. Any ideas what it is? Or who else might make a similar stroller?

Your description of the stroller with the flat basket makes us think it's the Bumbleride Queen B (pictured). The Queen B stroller has a spacious flat basket at the bottom. We agree with you - line the basket with a blanket for a small lazy dog. It's about $429 and has an optional bassinet for younger babies available. For a list of retailers, click here.
As for the Bugaboo basket, we actually really like it. It's bigger than it looks because the top is a sack with a drawstring closure. It's perfect for groceries, blankets, purse, Sunday paper, etc.
Does anyone else have any idea which stroller Christina is referring to?
