Rain at the Calgary Stampede

For the first time in the history of the Calgary Stampede, the chuckwagon races were cancelled due to rain on Tuesday.

It was a crazy day of rain in Calgary.

Luckily the skies look friendly today for Kids Day at Stampede Park.

At One Tiny Suitcase, I had some strange customer calls too due to all this rain. We got a call from a Mom with a 3-year-old boy in a cast who recently broke his toe. They needed a stroller to enjoy the Stampede.

Another mom called later in the evening requested a stroller because her son and slipped off a curb and injured his leg. We rented that family a ZOOPER stroller for a visit to Heritage Park.

Enjoy the Calgary Stampede and…be safe.

Calgary Zoolights 2009

The Zoolights in Calgary are back this year and better than ever. Many of our clients that come to Calgary to visit family during the holidays take in this Calgary tradition.

An even better way to see the over 2 Million lights at the Zoo is with a 2 for 1 coupon. Travel Alberta holiday card holders can print off a coupon online for 2 for 1 admission prices.

Looking for a set of comfy cozy wheels to get you and your little one around the Zoo? We still have a few Peg Perego Aria Strollers available for rent during the holidays. Starting from $8/day this stroller is small enough to fit in the trunk of a car and easy to maneuver with one hand.

Cosatto Travel Strollers

On our recent trip to Disneyland we were told by friends, in no uncertain terms, to use strollers for the twins. My kids were turning 5 years old while we were at Disney so it seemed a bit strange to be using strollers again but, when my mom friends give advice- I listen.

Thankfully, they were so right. We had thought about renting stroDisney 034llers at Disneyland but needed strollers to get from our hotel and back every day (about 1.5 miles one-way) so we decided to bring some with us from the One Tiny Suitcase (www.onetinysuitcase.ca) inventory.

The COSATTO travel strollers were the best option: light weight, easy to fold, reclining, 5 point harness, etc. We’ve had great feedback from our customers about these strollers and everything they said was true.

I don’t know how we would have done Disneyland with just a regular umbrella stroller and a bigger stroller like a CHARIOT would have been completely impractical because of the need to fold and unfold the strollers so often.

The COSATTO‘s, pictured here at the Calgary International Airport, turned some heads in California!

We rent out this brand in Calgary for $6/day…a small price to pay for comfort and convenience at the Calgary Zoo or around town in Banff. Check out our selecton of Stroller and Baby Equipment Rentals at www.onetinysuitcase.ca
