What kind of umbrella stroller is it?

This amazing stroller can be used right from birth, which means you don’t need to worry about upgrading your stroller system as soon as your baby starts to grow. The stroller can manage weights of over three stone which means you won’t need to think about changing strollers until your baby is fully on their way to becoming a toddler.

It also offers a light weight build that folds down easily. It even has a handy carrying handle on the top of the stroller to ensure that you can manage it as easily as possible. The lightweight system folds over reducing its size by more than half. So you won’t have any problems checking in to an airport or even fitting it into your boot with your shopping. It is also really quick to fold down meaning you won’t have to hold any buses up on your journeys.

Where is it suitable?

The Britax B stroller is suitable for any urban areas and will suffice in any rural areas you might visit. The whole design has been specifically streamlined so you can navigate around shopping aisles and busy streets without any difficulty. This is a really important feature as not many strollers can be used with ease around busy urban areas due to their size and bulk.

The wheels are designed with a multi-way system that means that you will easily be able to change direction and move around obstacles that might normally prevent you and your stroller from moving. The three wheeled design also helps to ensure that you can get to where ever you want to go.

Is it stylish?

No parent wants to push around an ugly stroller and the people who made the Britax B stroller know this, that’s why this stroller isn’t only easy to use and navigate but it is also very nice to look at. Available in a range of different colours, you will be able to choose one that matches your style. The sun shade is curved and designed to fit right in with the rest of the system rather than sticking out like a sore thumb. Over all the design on the Britax B stroller is very palatable.

The Britax B stroller is a revolutionary step forward in stroller designs. There is nothing left out on this system and you won’t find yourself compromising on anything should you chose to use it. It’s been on the top of the best selling umbrella strollers since it first came out and with good reason.

Is it stylish?

Nobody wants an ugly stroller even if it is the easy to use and the Caboose doesn’t fail in this area either. The stroller isn’t bulky and it comes in four different colours so you can truly tailor it to your life and style. A common mistake in double strollers is the width that often exceeds most shopping aisles and sidewalks but that isn’t the case with this umbrella stroller because of the unique seating design. The width of the stroller doesn’t exceed the width of a single stroller meaning that you won’t have a problem using it to shop with or to navigate around busy urban areas.

The Caboose stroller is a streamlined easy to use stroller that truly has the user in mind. Not only will your little ones love to use it but it will be a pleasure to use for you too. There is ample room in the bottom basket to fit any shopping you might have, the seat can be used to sit on or to be stood on, so your toddler feels like they are in control and the removable car seat will work in any car. This umbrella stroller really is great value for money.

Cons:

The BOB Revolution SE Single Stroller comes out as one of the priciest jogging strollers on the market since its accessories are sold separately. The wrist strap which is supposed to be an added safety feature can be a safety hazard when used while jogging or hiking, if the parent trips or falls while the wrist strap is on, the stroller can potentially topple over with him. This stroller is also not as lightweight as other competitors making it a bit inconvenient if you would need to carry it around a lot.

Our Recommendations

baby jogger city select

Baby Jogger City Select Review

The Baby Jogger City Select is a multi-functional stroller that transforms from a single to a double stroller. It has a patented attachment system that allows parents to customize seating combinations to suit their needs.

Features:

• Dimensions: 43.5 x 25.8 x 41.5 inches
• Weight: 28 lbs.
• Weight capacity: 45 lbs. (single)
• 16 seating combinations
• Double conversion kit (sold separately)
• Patented quick fold system
• Five-point safety harness with shoulder pads and buckle cover
• Adjustable multi-position seat (from upright to multiple reclining positions)
• Adjustable sun canopy
• Adjustable head height
• Hand operated brakes for safe parking

Pros

The Baby Jogger City Select converts from a single to double stroller, allowing parents the convenience of having a multi-purpose stroller that grows with their family. For those with toddlers and a new baby it eliminates the need of having to bring two strollers. Its award winning 16-seating combinations gives parents freedom to customize seating and carrying configurations to suit their needs.

The five–point harness with shoulder pads and buckle cover ensures your baby is seated comfortably and safely. Although it is convertible into a double stroller, its narrower frame compared to other competitors allows more freedom of movement without having to worry about tight spaces. This stroller also allows you to adjust its three part sun canopy (provides more protection than most strollers) and even the head height of the cover, truly accommodating a growing child’s needs.

The added front-wheel suspension allows a more comfortable ride and easier maneuverability even on uneven surfaces. Hand operated brakes provide easier parking. The Baby Jogger City Select folds compactly for easier transport and storage.

Cons

The Baby Jogger City Select is a bit pricey, although still affordable compared to higher-end strollers with the same features. When used as a double stroller, it gets harder to maneuver especially when moving up or down an incline. Since it converts into a double, it is considered a full size stroller and not as compact as its single stroller counterparts. It also does not stand on its own once folded for storage. You will need to lean it against a wall or similar surface if you want to store or transport it in an upright position.

Converting the stroller from a single to a double takes a bit of work and effort, it is not as easy as snapping on an added seat, however once all the basic converter parts are in place, it basically is an easy to use double stroller, unless of course you want to shift it back to single.

Our Recommendations

For parents who want a stroller that grows with their family or for those who already have two children, this stroller could be a good choice. Despite its pricier cost, its versatility, quality and durability make it well worth its price. Especially for those planning to have a second child close in age the City Select can be considered a good investment.

Its elegant design makes it a stylish yet useful accessory for the modern family. All in all, this stroller provides comfort, safety, versatility and durability plus extra features that make it worth its price.

first years indigo stroller

The First Years Indigo Stroller Review

The First Years Indigo Stroller is a compact, light-weight, contemporary styled reversible stroller that can accommodate infants and children up to 50 lbs. It has an affordable price tag and provides all the utility of a practical stroller without sacrificing comfort and safety.

Features:

• Dimensions: 34.5″ x 18.5 W x 41″ (L x W x H)
• Weight: 22 lbs.
• Easy to assemble
• Reversible seat that converts from front-facing mode to rear-facing mode.
• Five-point harness ensures safety without compromising comfort
• Spacious seat that adjusts from upright to reclining position
• One hand fold for easy storage
• Compatible with other First Years products
• Universal attachment for popular infant car seat brands
• Large wheels for easier maneuverability
• Rear wheel brakes
• Adjustable and removable canopy
• Taller handle height
• Parent pocket and storage basket

Pros

The Indigo Stroller is very stylish. It sleek contemporary look makes it an attractive accessory for on-the go modern parents. At only 22 pounds, it is compact and lightweight making it more convenient to move around and store. It is also very easy to assemble. No need for screws or knots and bolts. The wheels and seat easily snap in place and it is ready for use.

This stroller features larger wheels than competitors in its class, making it easier to maneuver on any type of ground surface. Its rear wheel brakes are a safety feature that allows parents to “park” with peace of mind. The relatively wide seat easily adjusts from an upright to reclining position with an easy release feature that also allows you to switch from forward-facing to “parent-facing” position.

The large storage basket has more than enough space to carry the usual baby basics plus a little extra. It also has a cloth pocket with zippers which parents can use to store their wallets, keys and cell phones or loose change without fear of these falling out or easily getting lost. Its canopy offers baby sufficient protection from sun and rain.

Cons

Although it is narrower than other strollers, it tends to be a bit bulky when folded with the seat attached. To get a truly flat fold, you need to remove the seat first before folding. Although, removing the seat is not all too difficult. The rubber on the handle bar easily wears and tears. Perhaps the most disappointing thing about this stroller is its wheels tend to squeak after a period of use.

Our Recommendations:

Over-all, the First Years Indigo Stroller covers all the basic features of a versatile and reliable stroller at a fraction of the price. It gives great value for your money without compromising safety and comfort of your little one and at the same time provides parents with added features for their convenience. The pros far outnumber the cons on this one. The squeaky wheels can easily be resolved by doing a DIY repair using lithium grease.

The most attractive feature of this stroller is its affordability. It may not last as long as its higher priced counterparts, however considering the wear and tear children can inflict on their things, the First Years Indigo Stroller allows you considerable durability despite its lower cost. Plus, First Years is known for their excellent customer service, so this product gets our thumbs up.
