Mothers work at Tanglin Mall and their flagship store at Great World city, they have a lot of strollers, I think even more than Mothercare at Harbour front....

But, they don't have everything in stock and it might take some time to get the one you want.

Not sure if you found one yet but I did see a lot of US strollers in Mother's Work in Tanglin Mall. Another option is Kiddie Palace.. but not sure if they have "imported" strollers.

Good luck.

Yao Ming might find that kinda funny as well. #-o

Didn't know that you had to buy strollers like shoes. Let's see know, will she outgrow this next year or should I buy a half-size larger to allow for some growth. Oh, with your nick, I wouldn't think a Caucasian stroller would work too well as your nick would seem to indicate that you might be of Indian extraction. Unless you get a stroller designed for your race you could have a serious accident and the centre of gravity won't be just right and you could have handling problems. :P :lol: :lol: :???:
I'm not Indian as far as I know. Actually I have a fair skin and hair, that would tell you that I'm Caucasian. I don't know how ab strollers but as for clothes, Caucasians buy Singaporean siza 6-9 months for 3 months sometimes. My babe's wearing socks for 1-1,5 year locals. :x :???: :P :roll:

As a mother, you should know that sizes labelled on clothes doesn't mean anything. I buy 18 months-2yrs old for my baby boy who's 9 mths old. Last december, we were in France and had to buy winter clothes for him. He was 4 months old at that time and we had to buy 1 year old for some brand (French brand by the way). But, my husband and I are both Asian type, Chinese descendants to be specific (though very mixed as I have a French grandma and he's got an Indian granddad). How can you explain that our baby is so big? So don't mix your skin colour and clothes size! You are here in Asia. It means you travelled in the world. Your mind should be more opened than that and less stereotyped.

By the way, Mothercare is a British shop and most of their products are European or US brands. Their stroller's size should fit your baby's size, otherwise she's already too big to be put in a stroller.
