oh, by the way, mod*mom, i posted some rooms that made me think of you! see them HERE. and have a great day!
Wow! I like the fact that it is so lightweight! Most of the time, strollers with that type of functionality are big and bulky. You generally must sacrifice quality in order to get something lightweight. This looks like the best of both worlds.
The handle looks like the type that you could use with either one hand or two. That would be quite useful!
I love the colors of these and the openess of design. The sides look like your toddler will fit and not have his shoulders squeezed in.
These strollers are very modern looking. Love the fact that they are so lightweight.
The lighter the better. Great color choices!
I love the look of these strollers and how how open they are so you're child doesn't feel so confined. Count me in!
Because it looks like it would fit in the back of a Mini Cooper (which mine doesn't) and the colours are cooool. The surfer combo is "I'm too cool for high school".
Ooh, I love the color shown here! And all the quick/compact folding would be just fab for a teeny NYC apartment. Crossing my fingers!
This is like the Rolls Royce of strollers! Except lightweight!
That is just about the coolest folding stroller I have ever seen. I have to jam mine in the back of my car, not to mention that it falls over every time I fold it. I'm actually missing my left pinky toenail due to an unfortunate stroller folding incident. Also I love the Chocolate combo, I'm a sucker for blue and brown together
I love how you can fold it so easily! and it is light, so I would be comfortable handling it myself with baby & bags. The chocolate color combo is really pretty.
At risk of being redundant, I love the chocolate color combo. Aside from the sleek styling, the best thing about it is that although it looks light as a feather, it also looks sturdy and cushy and comfortable.
I love the streamlined approach to design, the lack of silly baby colors (who wants to push around a baby pink or baby blue stroller???, and the one-handed fold?!? As a mom to a two year old and a baby on the way this September - one handed is the ONLY way to go!
I love ALL the features: one-hand fold, Strong lightweight aluminum frame, Detachable storage bag,
Love it! I love that it is one-handed, lightweight, the vibrant colors, chic design, that it is freestanding (always wanting to save space).
Love the sleek modern design, the choice of colors, and most of all - the lightweightness!
Very chic! I really like the one-step brake feature. Plus I adore the chocolate/blue color combo.

nice colors, easy to fold, reclines. i love it. pick me--baby due in august.
These strollers look amazing. I love the color choices and the fact that it looks so lightweight and easy to store. I am preparing to take out the mammoth stroller to use for #2 coming soon.
This is the only stroller I've every been crazy about! It's perfect!
The design is very modern and cool. I like the one hand fold and the detachable storage bag. I also like the easy to carry feature. This is a great stroller, thanks
I love the sleek design and the fact that it looks so light weight! I could really use it!
so many great features! the folding is the cooolest and i love that it is free standing after its folded up. i'm always proping mine against the wall only to have it crash. wish they made a double
I like the compact design when folded as well as the look (very European and streamlined). This looks like a great stroller for travel.
These look fabulous. They look like they would be easy to push, lift, transport, etc. Best of all, they look like they are comfortable for the child.
I just watched the folding demo on their website and was impressed by the final small size - great for apartment dwellers. The fabric combinations are also really lovely.
I love all the fabric choices - although it'd be hard to pick which one!
i love the handle.
The colors and fabric look nice and durable but the one-handed folding and compactness when folded make the Cielo especially appealing to me. On looks alone, it's my favorite of miaMODA's strollers.
Love the colors and the fold.
Love the terracotta and the chocolate combinations. This stroller is the triple threat - lightweight, fresh colors, and great design!

Incredible. I'm impressed that it's half the weight of my current urban stroller [amazing!] and equally sleek and pretty. Chocolate would be my choice.
Well, I like that they have a folding demo, but I'd really like to see how it's carried. The colors are good, but I'd like to more choices. The brown/blue color combo has had its day. Next, please.
I'm on my third boy and seventh stroller, so I know a thing or two about strollers. I love the ease of getting a screaming toddler in and out of this one. Looks wonderful.
looks so easy to use. baby #2 needs one.
What's not to like! It's the perfect stroller - light, folds easily, breezy to move around, good looking, sturdy, comfy for the babies. Wish me luck!!!!!!!
Love the strollers, simple, great colors, and easy to use.
I would just die if I won this stroller! I love the look but more importantly the ease of it. Crossing my fingers....
Wow. It's really different. It takes some getting used to the design - it just seems that something is missing at first glance, but it is really cool. I love the colors, especially that they aren't gender specific.
Dang. Those are pretty strollers. I'm on the third kid and don't own an umbrella stroller--it would be great to have one of those in the back of the car!
It's lightweight--that's very good. One handed folding?? Awesome. Color combinations--cool.
The miaMODA cielo is like a bite of a perfectly constructed, silky lemon torte w/ raspberries on the side: elegant, functional, and almost too pretty to touch.
love it!!! the folding is amazing! just thinking of how easy it would be to take the bus or a cab in ny, very cool!
The folding demo is great.
Sleek, sexy, stylish. The one stroller my husband would be proud to push. Light enough for me to chuck it into my trunk. All the good stuff, none of the bad.
High points for style. Looks light but sturdy. I am tired of my clunky looking stroller!
I think it is a very nice looking stroller. Lightweight and easy to fold are great features. My only concern would be how usable it would be until the baby gets a little older, will I still need a seperate newborn stroller?
Cool stroller. I could really use this!
The handle is a dream! Can't miss this one. And nothing but a great view for baby.
Love the fold of the Cielo! Love the lines of the Engeri!
I love everything about this stroller -- that it is freestanding when folded, lightweight, folds up with one hand, looks cool, and I love that you're giving one away, because I need a new, cool stroller!
Funny- a FedEx guy just dropped a Cielo (to review) on my porch earlier this morning.
Such great color choices. It also looks very pratical, light, easy to fold one handed!!
I love the look of this stroller, especially the brown and blue fabrics.
I think they are sleek, innovative, fun and minamilist!
i LOVE this stroller - the design is so cool. I'm in the market for a smaller, lighter weight stroller and have been debating for a month or so whether or not to get one. Luckily I just saw the review on babygadget, which really helps!
definitely love the colors, the simplicity, rugged look, and modernism of this fab stroller.
wow! i love this stroller. the folding demo had me sold. it folds up so compact. love the colors too. i like the grey with orange trim. so mod. great product. please enter me to win the cielo stroller. thanks vanessa cain
What's not to like? Baby is not restricted behind a tray, sleek design, easy manuverability, light weight, but sturdy! Yikes! And then you have the colors!
It's a good looking stroller, but what I love is that the seat looks very comfortable for baby!
miaModas are funtional and stylish, the perfect combo for an urban mommy.
I love when design and function intersect so well--folds with one hand in 5 seconds. I LOVE IT!!
Easy in, easy out, for baby and for me. I love it.
WOW, what a great looking stroller!!!! - email@example.com
I love the design of this stroller! How amazing that a stroller that looks so sturdy can collapse so small.
What do I think? That my son will be the coolest toddler ever in his surfer-print stroller! How original and cute!
I like the colors and the lightweight ness (Is that a word?) of the stroller.
I think the ease at which you fold it up
I need a stroller that isn't as heavy as my child, especially when it's that good-looking to boot!
The beautiful colors and combinations together with the way it folds so small and is lightweight are primary things that appealed to this mother who struggles daily with a cumbersome and heavy stroller that takes up all my trunk space and leaves my poor back aching all the more.
Oh this would be great, I just had a baby two months ago and am on the hunt for a stroller.

I love that this stroller has a removable storage bag, it's light and folds easily and can stand up on its own closed. Awesome!
I love that it is lightweight and folds up so small. My current stroller fills up my trunk entirely!
This would be a great stroller for our trip to China to pick up our child! Since my husband and I are an architect and designer - I love the design of this stroller. The cantilever open seat, the frame, and the compact design. I also like the fact that is has simple color options without all the little animal and baby prints. We travel a lot and plan to travel even after baby so this would be a fantastic accessory. Thank you for the opportunity!
Love the fold! This would really help with our trip to the east coast this summer...
This stroller looks fantastic! Love the chocolate color combo.
Hmm, gotta say I love the fabric choices!

What a neat little package it is when folded up! Amazing!
love the colors, looks comfy, easy to handle, lightweight. but how does it push? hopefully it glides.
The one-hand collapse is a huge feature, and the fact that it's fresstanding when folded. A big improvement over my huge clunker!
Strollers that collapse are so great - I can actually fit them in my trunk. My favorite feature about the strollers is that they acknowledge that a mom can want to be COOL as well as a good mother,
The thing I like most about the MiaModa website is that is thorough. You can watch the folding process of each stroller and the comparison chart is really helpful. Finally, the strollers are uberhip! I love the brown/blue color combo! As an expecting mom, I'd be thrilled to win a Cielo stroller.
compact, well balanced, one-handed steering look like it would serve us well on the streets and subways of manhattan on our next visit!
hi-tech look, hi-tech functionality - great design
I love how compact it folds up, bulkier than some strollers but in less space. It looks like an easier fit for small trunks. The web site shows the folding process but doesn't make it clear whether it's easy.
I love, love, love the colors. They are delicious!
I love everything about this stroller.
I love the color choices and the 5 point harness to keep escapees in. I think that it may even fit in my van when its folded up, and so far only and umbrella stroller fits in my van! I really love the one touch brake. I'm not sure I like the storage bag, I like them underneath the stroller better usually.
Wow! And you can really do that with one hand? Looks great!
The folding design is a great spacesaver especially for frequent bus-riders like us. However, I would have some reservations about the comfort and security of the seat design; the sides do not look like they would give adequate support.
Much less bulky than the one I have now plus the adjustable seat reclining is great. Mine only has almost flat and almost straight up- no in between. My son HATES his stroller. He'd like this one as it's less enclosed/confining.
This is a streamlined design with funky colour choices - would be great for our epic trans-atlantic trip in the fall. The folding feature makes my mouth water - and that they did it without sacrificing what looks like a good-sized storage bag is just remarkable.
The design of this stroller (and all of theirs, actually) is simply exquisite. There's not a wasted inch. And that color! What an eyecatcher. I am completely in love.
Sleek and unique style.
I finally posted the Cielo review to my blog:
I love this stroller! I love the features and the colors. It would be great since our stroller just got damaged after an international flight....note to self: dont bring your nice stroller with you on the plane!
This stroller is amazing. I am in the process of shopping for a compact stroller for my soon to be 1 year old. I drive a small SUV so space saving design is my #1 concern. This stroller fits all of the criteria. And the color choices are great for my little man!
Hi it looks just the job for my grandson, I have a missan micra and it looks like it would fit in beautifully
