Banff Baby Stroller Rentals

Our stroller rentals seem to be spending more time in Banff these days than I am. Customers are calling in everyday looking for an all-terrain stroller that they can take with them to Banff. One of my favorite stroller recommendations is the VALCO Tri-mode stroller rental.



This is tough as nails, full of features and comes with so many custom accessories it can battle any kind of weather. Here are 5 reasons why the VALCO stroller is so good for a winter trip to Banff with Baby:

1. The Winter Boot– included with this stroller rentals, this ‘boot’ or ‘foot muff’ as it is sometimes called, protects little one’s feet and never needs a blanket.

2. Recline– most strollers recline but this stroller really reclines (to flat) for nap time. You can also easily reverse the seat if you want baby facing you too.

3. Swivel– like the flexibilty of a front wheel that can swivel? This stroller can do both, easily change the front wheel from fixed to swivel with a flick of the swivel lock located on the handle. A fixed front wheel will be easier for getting through the snow and over curbs but the swivel wheel allows you to turn it on a dime.

4. Generous hood– the hood or sun/rain shade can be pulled down to cover almost the whole seat. Excellent for unpredictable weather!

5. It’s tough!– it’s really durable, agile and easy to drive.

Holiday in Canada? Renting an RV?

rv rentals calgaryOn a recent trip to Banff for a weekend of camping, I noticed that the RV park was filling up with Motorhomes and RV’s. As I looked closer I realized that the majority of these were rentals from Canadream RV.

Renting an RV is a great way to see Canada, especially if you are traveling with little ones. RV’s make it easy to have some of the comforts of home with you, be able to cook familiar meal, accommodate nap times, etc.

We provide additional rental items like baby beds, car seats and portable highchairs. Delivered right to the RV rental desk, it makes it super easy to get everything  you need installed in the RV before you embark on your journey!

We have partnered with Canadream and are happy to provide a discount to all Canadadream RV Club members. See the full listing of discounts in their extensive guide.


Gearapalooza in Edmonton….in the snow!

The first ever Gearapalooza in Canada on Wednesday, May 6th, was welcomed by a typical Edmonton experience in spring – a snowstorm.   This didn’t stop the sold out crowd of new and expecting parents from coming out to West Coast Kids to learn about new baby gear and to hear from the baby gear expert himself, Jamie Grayson.   I was lucky enough to be amongst them.

For the first hour or so, we mingled with retailers over sandwiches and desserts (the cannoli was amazing!), watching demonstrations of their latest and greatest products.

I was particularly drawn to the Quinny Yezz stroller.  I have never seen a stroller fold so easily and so compact.  I think it would be great for public transport.  Travelling with my son on the bus with a typical stroller has always been somewhat of a struggle.

The My Carry Potty was another interesting product.  It’s a stylish potty that kids can take with them wherever they go.  I will definitely keep this in mind as my little guy nears potty training age.

Also, the Dekor diaper pail works for both disposable and cloth diapers, something I have never seen before with typical diaper disposal systems. You can also lock the top so toddlers can’t open and throw items in.

Next up was a presentation by Jamie Grayson, the Baby Guy.  With many adoring fans in the crowd, his humourous, yet informative presentation on baby item essentials was well received.  His explanation on car seat installations was the best I’ve heard.   His presentation was very interactive, with lots of audience questions answered.

After the presentation, several lucky attendees went home with great prizes, totaling thousands of dollars.  Everyone went home with a swag bag with loads of products worth more than the cost of admission.

All in all, it was a worthwhile event for new and expecting parents, and a great Canadian introduction to Gearapalooza.

Thank you to Monica for this guest post and for attending Edmonton’s first ever Gearapalooza!
