[PURPLE_TEXT_BOLD {Tuesday's Pick: Silver Cross Micro V2 Stroller}]
Umbrella strollers that fold up small can look flimsy and be uncomfortable for long strolls. But the removable seat cushion and canopy on the Silver Cross Micro V2 make it feel more like a carriage  -- minus the bulk. ($130;
[TOUT_IMAGE "/touts/ch_mom_tested.gif" "85" "44" "Mom-Tested logo" "left"]"It's nice and narrow  -- so I'm as unencumbered as a mom pushing a stroller can be! And I love that the canopy goes forward without the hinges' pinching your fingers."
