Hi,I don't think a stroller is just for mainstream.I use ours very often,we don't have a car that's running yet,so if we want to go out during the day,I use the stroller.My ds,Gabrion(2 a month from tommorrow!),loves to watch the cars go by,and my dd,Kasia who will be 5 one week from today still rides in the stroller.The closest park is quite a walk,same with grocery stores,etc.We have a Sit N Stand($7.99 at Savers!!!!!What a deal!!!!!)where Gabe rides in the front,and Kasia can either sit on a little jump seat in the back and face me or stand and look around.There are straps to keep her safe either way.It holds up to 50lbs on each seat,so with Kasia at 40lbs and Gabe at 28lbs,we still have a while to use it.I don't know what I would do without it! Gabe is very difficult to handle walking,as he screams and has a tantrum if you won't let him do something he wants,like say,run out into the street.He's very content in the stroller,and gets so excited to see the cars,and will squeal with delight at a big truck.He will literally try to jump out of my arms if I carry him.Kasia just asks me to stop if she wants to walk,and lets herself out,but knows if it's just the 3 of us that she needs to be in the stroller when we need to cross a busy street.
