  1. On the go mom on August 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I purchased this stroller 2 weeks ago and love it! This is my 2nd Chicco stroller (also have Cortina travel system). Chicco strollers are great. The Capri is excellent for on the go parents. Its lightweight but still is sturdy and handles well. I am 5’7″ and have not had any issues with kicking the wheels.

  2. Darci on August 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I was looking for an umbrella stroller but found that the handles were always to short. I would have to bend over just to push my son. I love that the hands are taller. My 9 month old loves the out doors and loves sitting in this stroller. It’s great when a normal stroller is to big to push around. Great for traveling too.

  3. Mason's Mom on August 24th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! Initially i was looking for a mid-size stroller (finished using the Cortina travel system), but stumbled upon this one at the store. My 16 month old son fits perfectly in the seat. The 5 pt harness keeps him in place with plenty of room for growth. I love the double handles (which i can comfortably reach). And the best part, the wheels turn with such ease! This stroller folds down easily and is compact for the trunk of my car. Overall, i am very pleased with this product and would definitely recommend it to friends. Thanks for another great stroller Chicco!

  4. nicki on August 24th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller a week ago and I enjoy it. It’s very light and nice looking. Absolutely love this stroller!

  5. Always on the go mom on August 25th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller and it was exactly what I needed. My 4mth old fits just right in it and he fell asleep in it right away. I just got tired of trying to maneuver the big bulky stroller I had in the mall, or trying to get through aisles in a store. This worked out great and it is very lightweight. It also come with a carrying bag to store and travel with the stroller. It is the perfect height for my husband too, he is 5’9′. Very easy to use. 🙂

  6. Mother of 2. on September 4th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    The stroller is very lightweight, compact and very sturdy. Great wheels and handle bars.

  7. MommaMel on September 11th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is excellent. It’s lightweight and easy to carry around (especially with a carrying bag) and my son loves it! We also have a big travel system that was great when he needed so much stuff, now that he’s a little bigger, almost 1, its nice to have something light and easy to manuever in. We would recommend this to any parents!

  8. Pin-up Mama on September 17th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    When I was in the store and saw they finally got this one in black I had to have it! I’d looked at reviews for umbrella stollers and this one had the best. It’s a little bit pricey, as far as umbrella strollers go, but it’s worth it if you plan on using it a lot. The quality is excellent, and there was basically no assembly required. So easy to use! I haven’t taken it out yet, as my daughter is only 5 weeks old, but I anticipate that I will have no problems.

  9. 1st time mom on September 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have a Graco Metrolite travel system as our main stroller but I got tired of pushing that thing around. That stroller is 17 pounds and this one is 11 but it seems like such a huge difference. It is so much easier for me to go places with my kid. I have a little problem with kicking the rear wheels but I can deal with it. That’s why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 but it really is a great stroller. My son seems to like it too.

  10. BooBoos Mommy on September 24th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller!!!
    It is lightweight and is great for traveling around.Very easy to move around and smooth 🙂
    The only thing I would change is to make the storage basket under the seat bigger–You cant fit much under it, and with an infant you need to bring alot of stuff with you when on the go 🙁

  11. Natalia, working mom on October 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I absolutely love this stroller!!! As far as umbrella strollers go, this one is by far the best. We have used it with our son since he was 6 months old, and he is now 2. The fabric is comfortable, durable and easy to clean. It weighs only 10 lbs, fits in the back of the car, easy to open and close with one arm, and it’s cute. The seat reclines a little if you unzip the sides…enough for our son to sleep comfortably. We have taken this stroller to London, Switzerland, Florida and Hawaii…it’s great! I would hate to try and get through a security checkpoint with anything else. Easy to manuever and did I mention how light it is! My mother in law lives on the 3rd floor of a building without an elevator, and I was easily able to carry my son in the stroller while he was sleeping!! I bought the same stroller for my god daughter today. Worth every cent. I would never travel with another stroller!

    The one thing that can be improved is the shade…wish it could be positioned to block the sun when walking in the direction of the sun. We keep a receiving blanket handy to drape over the front to keep the sun out of my son’s face. Most umbrella strollers don’t have a good canopy.

  12. miu's mom on November 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have used this product from when my baby was 1 year old. He is now almost 4 and this is our one and only stroller ever.
    1. Its lightweight, travel-friendly. You can take it inside flights, cos it fold like an umbrella-stroller and doesn’t take up much space.(i do keep the shade at home..or put in the suitcase, though!)
    2. There is a smart little storage area, so you don’t have to carry a huge baby-bag for a quick stroll. Now that my baby is bigger, its a great place for a little toy/snacks or my sunglasses!!
    3.You can’t beat the price!! If you want most of the features a high priced stroller gives you and at the same time need somthing that is not so bulky, this is the one for you.
    4.Durability! I’ve been using this one stroller for 3 years now and it still works and looks great.
    5.Easy to clean.
    6.Easy to maneuver, because of the rolling wheel in front..also cos it is quite compact.
    The only negative thing I can think of is that there you can’t put the back all the way down, when baby want to sleep. There is a resting position though.But he has never fussed much about that!!
    I warmly recommend this product. Have never been so happy about any other baby product!!

  13. mom of 2 on November 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I went in to buy a Maclaren after spending 2 weeks researching strollers. I wasn’t impressed with the Maclaren’s in person and was drawn to this stroller. It is so attractive looking. The fabric is very nice, not cheap looking. Much better then this picture. It is basically identical to the Maclaren Triump. The seat recline has two positions and is adjusted by unzipping each side. Very easy and gentle.. it’s not going to jerk a sleeping baby awake when it’s put down. The reason this stroller is better then the Triump is the canopy. I was really disapointed that the Maclaren canopies didn’t budge at ALL. This stroller has a great canopy. If you undo the little velcro ties around the handles the canopy comes forward another 4-6 inches. If you have a really harsh, low sun, you can unbutton the snaps that secure the hood to the stroller back for it to cover directly in front of the babies face. This made the choice a no brainer. For how expensive Maclarens are I can’t believe their shades are so cheap. The stroller folds very easily but the little clip to secure it shut is a little tricky to figure out at first. It comes with a carrying strap and also a travel bag. The storage underneith is bigger then I thought it would be and there is also a clear see through bag that is attached to the stroller. It contains the travel bag but could be used for diapers and wipes, snacks, etc. The stroller is a comfortable height. I am 5’8 and have no problem pushing it and do not kick the wheels. The 5 pt harness is great and both my 11 month old and 3 year old are comfortable in it. My 3 year old has about 6 inches between his head and the canopy so he should fit in it for a few more years. It’s not very wide so might be a bit snug for a very chunky preschooler. It steers VERY well. Better my Peg Perego p3. I’m plesantly surprised how much I like this stroller and I am very picky about strollers. I already have a BOB revolution and my Peg Perego but needed a great lightweight stroller and this is it! Great quality and great price. We actually bought 2 for our upcoming Disney trip!

  14. Enery4all on November 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Very light weight and easy to operate, nothing to put together but the shade and comes with an awesome bag to carry over the shoulder when you need the stroller but not right away and/or to store when you are flying or any kind of traveling.
    This is well worth it and wish I would have bought it earlier but luck has it that it can be used for up to 6 year olds. I have a 16 month old; and she loves the smooth ride. (probley won’t put a 6 yr old in it but it’s good to know I can).

  15. mari on December 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    the stroller is nice i love the black and silver color but after only about 2 weeks the fabric on the recline straps broke on both sides my child is not overweight so it is weird that it just broke after such little time of use i am returning it and probably not rebuying .

  16. Ava on December 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller after looking for a lightweight stroller I could pop in and out of the car easily. I was not disappointed with this stroller. After using other strollers that were twice the price, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I love this one. It is super easy to use, really light and well built. If you need a simple stroller and dont want to spend a lot this is a great one.

  17. First time Mom on December 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I had a hard time getting the canopy on the stroller so for now I am not using it. My son seems to enjoy riding in it and it is much lighter and easier to maneuver than the standard stroller I have. All in all, no regrets.

  18. Dad on December 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    The stroller iery lightweight and easy to maneuver, however it has two critical flaws:

    (1) No adjustable length handles. As long as you’re under 5′ 5″ tall, then you’re probably fine with this thing. Otherwise you’ll keep kicking the wheels because the handles/arms are just too short. Very frustrating. I actually have to stand to the side of the thing and push with one arm.

    (2) If you fold it up with the canopy attached (as 99.9% of people will), the wheels fold right up onto it and will dirty it up.

    This is just a poorly engineered product. I really want to like it, but I can’t.

  19. Jarrons Momma Bear on December 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I just baought this for my son and I absolutly love it. I wish it had a little more storage space but that is not really a problem. I like how compact it is and how easy it is to open and close. My son really like the seat and reclining positions. I had a full size stroller and just cant do back. I LOVE the Chicco brand and would recomend this to any mom.

  20. Metro Mom on January 16th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    As a first time Mom, living in Manhattan, going out and about in a fast paced city can be a little daunting, especially when you use mass transit. I bought this stroller for my son (10 months old). Because of its light weight and quick and easy folding function. Living in an apartment I love that it doesn’t take up any space!

    I love the strap! It makes getting on and off the bus so much easier!!

    And I love that the price is affordable! Do yourself a favor and buy this stroller!!!

  21. Jamie the sexy!! on January 17th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    i like it… it doesnt have a table with it and my friend has the same thing with a table!!!!

    this is okay

    the price is good

  22. Elizabeth on January 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The chicco stroller is for short people. I am 5’4 so it’s perfect for me but my husband (5’11) hates it. I also have a hard time snapping the stroller shut.

  23. Working Parents on February 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I like this stroller because it’s light weight, and my son doesn’t mind riding in it. I like the plain black color as well. The only disadvantage I have is that the handles are not adjustable. I’m only 5”4’, and my feet constantly hit the back wheels. It is a bit frustrating. I have to remember to take small strides, so my feet won’t hit the back wheels. My husband also has this problem. The only other disadvantage is that the basket is small, and a bit hard to get to. I guess this is because it is a light weight stroller, and for on the go uses, you really don’t take a lot along with you. Overall, we like it and it get’s the job done for us.

  24. Maree_03 on February 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have had this stroller for 4 months now. I wanted something smaller and lightweight. This was one of the best purchases I have made. I read all the reviews and noted alot of people had trouble with kicking the wheels so I went and tried it out first. It is very comfortable for me I am 5’3. I have never kicked the weels once. It is very lightweight, folds easy and maneuvers great. Very smooth. I would recommend this stroller highly!

  25. eebee on February 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have this stoller in red. I got it to replace my Chicco travel system (which I love). It’s small, light and fits well in my small SUV’s trunk. We can easily fit a full cart of groceries & the stroller. I have no trouble folding it up — felt like second nature after having the bigger Chicco. I wish it had a cup holder, bigger basket and a better sun shade, but it’s my little stroller. If we were planning on an all day trip I’d bring the bigger Chicco.

    I’m now looking at a double stroller and thinking I’ll get another Chicco.

  26. J's mom on February 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We purchased this stroller a few days ago, to use on our upcoming vacation. After reading the reviews and finding out all the problems people have had with kicking the wheels, we decided to go into the store and try it out. Sure enough, we had the same problem. I am 5’2’’ and could not push it without kicking the wheels (my husband is much taller so it was worse for him). We also put our daughter in it, and she did not seem comfortable. The back is not as upright as our full sized stroller. She was hunched over and trying to lean forward. We will be returning the stroller this week.

  27. Rachel on February 16th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Great stroller, especially if you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a full size stroller. Light weight, easy to fold/ unfold, easy on/off straps for your child, option of straight/ swivel wheels easy to transition, can lock/ unlock wheels even with flip flops on, easily adjustable sunshade. Only problem I have with this stroller is, when you go to fold it down/ open it up, the snap is very hard to attach/ detach. Great stroller!

  28. jureen on February 20th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    we first purchased this product more than 2 years ago when we were still on oklahoma.me and my husband really love this product coz it’s easy to fold and it’s very light!now that we are here currently living in indonesia and needs a new for my almost 4 year old son so we decided to purchase a new chicco capri but just in different color…love it!and it’s good for travelling too!very easy to manage!

  29. New Mom on February 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller to keep in my car for those quick trips to the mall, store, errands, etc. So far I am pleased with it. I wouldn’t use it to take my son on our long walks outside but it is good for what it is intended for. I saw reviews about the wheels getting the canopy dirty when they hit it upon folding. I just bought the black one so I haven’t had problems. I am 5’5″ and don’t have an issue kicking the wheels either. My only complaint is that when I do fold it up it is very difficult to secure the lock.

  30. Logan's Mama on March 11th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is great. I wanted this stroller to supplement our Travel System (giant!) stroller. It folds up easily & is easy to maneuver. My only complaint (& it’s very minor) is the clip to lock it closed is difficult to use. Other than that, I think it’s great. The quality is so much better than the cheaper strollers & I think it’s worth spending the extra money to get something that will last longer than a month. We looked into a MacLaren, but I just couldn’t justify spending so much on an Umbrella stroller. Oh, and Logan LOVES that his feet hang down on this stroller & he can kick his feet & watch them move. (:

  31. Going to be 2nd time mom. on March 23rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller for an upcoming vacation but have used it already. It’s just perfect. Folds up easily and collapses down just like a really cheap umbrella stroller. So easy to push one handed too. My son loves it and fell asleep in it. He hasn’t done that since he was 4 months old and he is 21 months old now. I’m looking forward to traveling with it! AWESOME!!!

  32. brooklyn mom on March 30th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I wanted a stroller that was light, easy to manauver, easy to fold and open, all to get arround the city easily. I’m very happy with this stroller. It works perfectly for getting around on public transportation. I can open, close and carry it all with one hand while holding my 9 month old daughter. I’m pleased that it seems very comfortable for my daughter, and the wheels are spring mounted; the ride is surprisingly smooth on the rough slate sidewalk. It was this or the Maclaren Volo. I think this is as good and quite a bit less money. I don’t kick the wheels. I’m 5’8″. I think kicking the wheels has more to do wiht how wide of a gate you have. My feet kick between the wheels when I walk. My husband is 5’8″ and he does kick the wheels a litle because he walks with his feet turned out a bit.

  33. JayW on April 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is a fantastic stroller! If you are looking for an ‘umbrella’ stroller…this is the way to go. It is a bit more then others you will find, but has features that the cheaper versions don’t have – like a 5 point harmess, basket underneath, canopy, shoulder strap for carrying when it is folded.
    The first time around – with out daughter, we purchased the cheap version….now – with our son, we know better!
    I read a ton of reviews on this stroller and specifically went with the black one because I read so many posts saying that when it folds the wheels get the canopy dirty.
    I also feel that I must point out to those who complain that their foot hits the wheels…this happens with all ‘umbrella’ strollers. They are not meant for long walks or hikes…they are meant for quick trips and for a convient travel option!

  34. Nan the Gran on April 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    […] as this gift was for an out of state friend’s baby shower.

  35. 1st time mommy on April 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    When I tried this stroller out in the store I loved it. Then I bought it and actually used it. The biggest problem with it is that Im 5’7 and the handles sit too low for me. I feel like Im hunched over and my bag keeps falling off my shoulder. I didn’t realize it until I actually used it at the mall. If you are shorter it would probably work out great. I also do kick the wheels on occaision which I have read about in some of the other reviews. I could live with that if the handles were higher.

  36. FLmom on April 11th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    we got this as a second stroller to use on trips and also for my husband to use when he takes our son out. we both really like it and our son fits nice in it, he is 9 months old.
    the one thing i don’t like about it, is the basket is hard to get to and not that big. but i don’t really use the basket that much, so its not a huge deal.
    my mother in law used it the other day and is now thinking of getting one for her house.

  37. Kathleen Mom and Nurse on April 16th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    My sister told me to get it and i don’t have any regrets. Easy to fold, lightweight, easy to maneuver. Matthew my son of 6 month old fell asleep everytime that he is in. I got it in black so my husband loves it too.

  38. new mommy on April 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I am also very short and I kick the wheels when I walk. Also the snap to hold it together when it’s closed is almost impossible to snap. But it is light weight and easy to maneuver.

  39. nana12 on April 26th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Lightweight, but completely functionable as well as attractive!

  40. Run around mom on May 1st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The stroller itself is good, and MUCH better than the cheaper umbrella strollers. It would be nice if it sat upright more and had a tray on it. The canopy is really hard to get on, and the closing snap is almost impossible. It’s really frusterating to snap it closed and then when you have to open it back up. But I wouldn’t go for anything cheaper, you need to go to the store to see them, they are CHEAP.

  41. Grandma on May 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I like it.

  42. mama of a sleepy baby on May 11th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller last week and I’m gonna return it this week. The only reason why i got it is because it said it reclined which my daughter needs when she naps, but you just open a zipper and that the recline. Didn’t like that at all. i think I’m going back and buying the joovy kooper, joovy groove, or maclaren triumph*

  43. JoJo's Mommy on May 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller with the intention of using it for afternoon walks and drop-off/pick-up for daycare. Though the stroller rides pretty good, the umbrella shade is awful! VERY difficult to attach, and once you put the stroller away it pops off again, so I got frustrated and just removed it altogether. This will probably now be our travel stroller for the airport, and any other quick runs where we need something light and small.

  44. Lauren on June 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I thought this was a pretty expensive lightweight stroller but I had great success with our carseat so I thought I would spend the money. I really don’t think it’s worth it. The shoulder straps are difficult to snap and the strap covers are not attached so we are constantly having to put them back on. The sunshade is very small and doesn’t protect very well. The basket in the bottom might as well not even be there. I would have liked to have a drink holder as there is really no place to put a sippy cup if you are out and about. On the plus side, the stroller handles and maneuvers very well. It is also very lightweight and easy to stow.

  45. Lexis Mom on June 10th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I like this stroller. The handles are a perfect height for me. It’s not the best ever, but it’s better than a $20.00 umbrella stroller. If you live in NYC, It’s a good stroller. I take it on the trains and buses by myself with no help..big plus! The basket is pretty small, and it doesn’t recline much. I noticed my daughter likes it much better now that she is older (14 months). I used to kick the wheels while I was walking but I guess I got used to it, because it doesn’t happen too often anymore. There is no cup holder, but I bought a cup holder from babiesrus to attach to it, problem solved for me! Again I take it all over the city with me, it is pretty impossible to close shut as other people have mentioned, but I like this stroller!

  46. mom on June 29th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is better then those little umbrella strollers. My husband and I looked around for some days to find the right light weight stroller, so we decided to take our 7 month old daughter with us and put her in all the strollers in the store we where considering. she felt the most comfortable in this one and didn’t cry. This one sits up better then most we looked at and the wheels stay on the ground while pushing, Its easy to maneuver around, sturdier then most that where there and I can put my large dipper bag on the back and it says standing up without my daughter in it. If your just looking for something to get you from point A to point B this is the stroller.

  47. Picky Mom on July 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have a Maclaren Kate Spade and I was looking for a lighter and something less expensive to take with our travels abroad. I saw this online and thought the price was reasonable (it was on sale too). I went to the store to check it out and it looked great and felt really sturdy and easy to maneuver. Almost as good as my Maclaren.

    But of course, I wanted to see how easy it was to close and open. I asked the very helpful sales person to show me how to fold it… it looked easy.. it collapsed very compact too. I tried to disengage it myself by pulling the tab out and I found it a bit difficult. But again I’m used to the Maclaren where I can easily use my feet to disengage the frame.

    The deal breaker for me was when the sales person showed me how to keep the stroller closed. She tried to connect the hook or clamp to the side of the leg…. but it broke! The plastic hook broke!! It split into two! I couldn’t believe my eyes! I don’t know if there is a specific way to connect that side hook on the frame. But I didn’t want to take the chance…so I ended up getting a Maclaren Volo (was on clearance so good deal). At least I’ve already tested its ease of use and quality.

  48. dharian on July 24th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    it’s perfect for my son, he is comfortable and for me is easy to use

  49. Ann on July 25th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Good buy, basket too small.

  50. Annie in Metro Detroit on July 30th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We love/d our Chicco infant carrier and I have no complaints about it but this stroller drives us crazy. The wheels often lock up for no reason. It is often frustrating turning tight corners or walking over uneven sidewalk. My son is now 15 months old and the handlebar foam is falling apart. It also does not sit up straight enough for our little munchkin. He likes to see what is going on so he has to hold on to the front of the stroller to sit up straight. It is also a bit cumbersome for a small stroller. I would also caution anyone from buying a stroller that requires two hands to push. It makes it difficult to multi task- which is inevitable. The portable cupholder for the parent always falls off when stowing.

  51. H's Mom on July 31st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Just bought this stroller b/c I needed something smaller with a basket. This is very well built and I don’t have to hunch over to push it. The wheels in back are a little to close together so I occasionally kick them while walking, but not really a huge deal. I would def buy this again!

    We used an old Kolcraft umbrella stroller for 3 years and then the footrest finally broke after years of our kids kicking it. We bought this to replace it and take on vacation with us. Right out of the box I was disappointed. This is poor quality, considering it cost close to 4 times what out old Kolcraft did. It’s certainly no better constructed. The buckle to get the kids in the seat is very difficult to use. The latch to fold up the stroller is also difficult to use and the canopy is terrible and just plain cheap. For a company that sells itself on quality, they should be embarassed. We are returning it tomorrow and getting another Kolcraft.

    We bought this stroller because we were looking for something compact and light. That it is. It has a pretty good ride and the wheels are smooth and easy to maneuver. I seem to have the exact same issues many have posted. The suncover is a joke. The basket is tiny. I wish the handles were longer becasue it feels strange walking trying to not bump my feet into the wheels and I’m only 5’4. It doesn’t recline much. Also, the shade gets dirty from the wheels when closing the stroller.

    It’s good for short trips and frequent in and out of the car but I now think it’s worth spending the extra $$$ if you have it to buy a Maclaren (not Volo) stroller which will last alot longer. My 1yr old is already becoming uncomfortable in this stroller.

    I went from a larger Britax stroller to this stroller. I really liked the Britax but it is rather heavy and bulky. I really like the weight of this stroller, the handles are at a good level. A lot of the umbrella strollers had such short, cheap handles. It turns really easily and is very easy to push. I’m really pleased. I bought the lime green stroller with black umbrella and I think the color is adorable.

    Just a basic stroller. Annoying little thing but serves its purpose when going on out of town trips. Cannot be steered with one hand. No cup holder. Not convenient for tall people, I’m 5’10”. Easy to open and fold with one hand. If you are on a tight budget, i recommend but if you can afford a more expensive, go for the upgrade. It would be worth it.

    We bought this stroller as a lightweight alternative to our travel system for our 4 month old daughter. It is very easy to open and close, although the clip that locks it shut was a little difficult at first. I love the fact that it is so lightweight and my daughter, even at 13lbs, fits just fine in it thanks to the 5 point harness.

    The only complaint I have is that the travel bag it came with ripped at the seam the very first time we put the stroller in it. I think it is because it was such a tight fit.
