    I was so excited to hear about this stroller. I thought it would be a wonderful, less expensive alternative to another pricier stroller we had our eye on. It turns well, and has a decent sized basket beneath. THE BAD THING is that there are 4, yes 4 STEPS to get it to fold, and then it doesn’t fold compactly. You also have to remove the chair from the frame to fold it.

    I was searching information about stroller I am 8 months pregnant and that stroller just got to the store so the sales rep. told me how to use it but the only thing I dislike is the way its fold, you have to take out the seat and fold the frame it becomes like in two parts so it will take the whole trunk, price is not too bad and colors are ok, also the rain cover and the reclining positions are very confortable, but I will return it today and get something more easy to fold. Also the weight is 33pds.

  3. shana the 911 friend on October 21st, 2007 at 12:00 am

    just trying it out in the store, converting to infant seat and back to the stroller NO DOUBT about quality and dirability. Price point is reasonable, color combination is excellent. I am buying two – one for me, one for my friend.

  4. mom on the go on October 27th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    love this stroller!!! i have bought 1 stroller before this one and it was a bad experiance. when i saw this stroller i loved it. the smooth ride and very comfortable for my baby. the folding is alittle complicated but i got used to it alrealdy and i am always on the go. i would recomand this stroller!!!

  5. Outlaw on November 4th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Great styling. Good constuction/quality. Priced right. I walk alot and this stroller although somewhat time consuming to break down (until you get the hang of it) is an absolute joy. Very smooth ride and comfortable on the parent, thanks to the telescoping handle.

  6. Mike, The Proud Dad on November 5th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I was searching for a stroller for a while and was about to break the budget for the stokke until I stumbled upon the Cosi. The stroller and car seat are light weight, comes with all the accessories needed, just about the same features as the stokke except for seating height adjustment and price. This stroller also features a neutral color combination for either boy or girl. The only con is that you have to remove the seat for it to fold completly and the rear tires are inflatable. Other than that its the next best thing to the stokke. If you were wondering go and compare the two. I had the opportunity to handle both and convinced its the next best thing.

  7. New mommy on November 7th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    After trying to fit a Bugaboo into an already crazy budget we found this stroller and fell in love with it! Great quality, manueverability and style. We LOVE the colors, very neutral and colors you’d actually like in you car. The folding was a concern at first, but like with anything else, once you try it a few times it’s really very easy. I know others complained about having to remove the seat before folding the base, but the Bugaboo and many other high quality strollers are the same. And trust me, as a petite person of 5’2”, the weight is not an issue. If you ask me, there’s no way it weighs 33 lbs as another reviewer says.

  8. Jenni the diehard stroller shopper on November 9th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I found this stroller in my local babies r us store and loved it! I have been searching the globe for a unique but functional travel system and this is it! I have tried the bugaboo, the mutsy 4 rider light, the rockstar, the fisher price ITT and the britax vigour. Hands down I like this the best. It has great steering and a perfect ride. The carseat attaches directly to the frame without the use of an adaptor bar (like most other strollers in it’s class) and the carseat is light weight, stylish and it seems really safe. The fabric is stylish yet practical. The handlebar adjusts perfectly for my tiny 5’1 frame but just as good for my taller friends. The basket it large and the brake is easy and sturdy. This stroller is built to last! I wanted to address some of the potential cons: 1. Yes you do have to remove the seat to fold. To me this is not a con considering how flat it folds without it. Comparable strollers do fold with the seat attached but only when it is in the forward facing position. For me, the only reason to purchase a stroller like this is so that I have the option of reversing the seat. Plus, when you fold the comps, they are HUGE! You almost have to remove the seat to rearrange the space in your car. 2. Yes it has a “4 step” fold process and the first time I tried it it took a minute but let me clarify for those who can’t try it for themselves- steps one and two are done simultaneously and so are three and four. I did it twice in the store and got the hang of it right away.3. I called the company to find out the exact weight and it is 33 lbs. This con I cannot dispute. The only redeeming quality is that with normal use (ie. in and out of a car) you never lift the stroller and the seat together. My little one isn’t due untill 08 but I watch my 2 year old neice and I can tell you that by that age your gonna want an umbrella stroller to toss around anyway. In the mean time any option is going to be heavy.4. The wheel base is wide. This is true. Your going to have a hard time in boutiques, crowded shops or messy stores during the busy holiday season but I have a hard time with my neice’s [$]common brand travel system. In case you haven’t thought of it, there is law that states that public and commercial facilities must be wheelchair accessible and a wheelchair is just as wide if not wider than this stroller. All in all I can’t wait to snap my munchkin in and hit the mall, sidewalks, boardwalk etc.. I’m calling off the search, I’m satistfied. If this isn’t the system for you, good luck in your search and happy hunting.

  9. Christina on November 19th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I LOVE THIS STROLLER!!! I have been searching high and low for a neat stroller without paying and arm and a leg for. I was looking into the Stokke, Bugaboo, and Rockstar and they are all soooo expensive! I actually like this stroller better than all of those because the seat is bigger so you can use it until the child is 4 years or 50 lbs, which I LOVE!! and the Seat sits Higher than other strollers so they can see the world! My son sleeps alot better because his feet are up and arent hanging down like other strollers.

  10. Preggers on November 21st, 2007 at 12:00 am

    If you need something that will last you for years, this is your product! The craftsmanship and quality is outstanding and inflatable tires insure a smooth ride for your little baby. The snuzzler we bought for our car seat went unused so we put it in the toddler seat and it works perfect for newborns! This stroller is stylish and gets compliments everywhere we go. I especially like the reclining positions and the fact the car seat and frame work just like the Gracco Snap N’ Go that’s so popular right now. The frame isn’t light, but it’s not impossible to maneuver- and breaking it down is really only 2 steps and it’s well worth the amount of space it saves. I will absolutely hand this stroller/car seat down because I’m confident of its quality and durability – good luck!

  11. a-rod's mom on November 25th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I believe that this stroller is not for everyone. First, if you are truly in the market for this type of stroller, you must know that all the other pricier ones that offer the same comfort and features are exactly the same; they all have more or less 4 steps and you must remove the seat to collapse it. My son is 5 months old and I have been making the poor child suffer in my peg perego aria one hand. Yes it weighs 9 lbs and you can collapse it with one hand,however the thing is harder than a rock and they fail to tell you that it does not fully recline and parts fall off while your walking and it’s embarassing. Just the other day in an elevator a man handed me a piece from the sroller and I wasn’t even aware it had fallen off! LOL!!! Society has gotten way too lazy and we want it all! Back in the day people didn’t even have strollers and when they did, not many could afford them. So it takes a few extra steps? So what, isn’t your childs comfort worth it?

  12. Expecting our 1st! on December 5th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I found this stroller while in […] when registering…I was so excited to have found exactly what I was looking for without the giant price tag. I have been researching comparable strollers for a while…Bugaboo, Britax, Valco Rad, Rock Star baby…and then I stumbled on the Maxi Cosi Foray!!! Couldn’t be happier with everything it offers: multi seat recline, reversible seat, snap in car seat, large inflatable rubber back tires for smooth ride, easy foot brake…just click (no messing up the toes of your shoes). The colors are neutral too! Great deal for [$] with all important features as Bugaboo. You have to take the seat off in order to fold down, but most strollers in this class are the same way!

  13. Lina The 24 HOur Mom on December 15th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    i love this stroller so easy to work with
    its like and the car seat click on it too
    one thing i dont like its a light color besides that i love it

  14. Mom of two on December 23rd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Believe or not but I got Bugaboo stroller for my first baby…and I sold the Bugaboo and bought this new item Maxi-Cosi….in crazy I know , but I think after using Bugaboo that Maxi-Cosi stroller have is quaite the same comfort to ride and Maxi-cosi have bigger wheals that make stroller more solid. Another thing – with Maxi-Cosi seat for child is longer so even my huge 3 years old is possible to fit in it…with Bugaboo? Impossible. I like the color – more natural and more important – price!!!! Is big issue, now almost every cool mom can have cool stroller. I’m trully recommend this stroller.Remember I’m mother of two….!!! I know market and I used Bugaboo (for this amount money – big mistake)

  15. Charlotte - a mum in the making on December 24th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I am 7 and a half months pregnant and have been searching high and low over the last few months for the perfect designer stroller that does not have the not-so perfect designer price tag. I was recommended the Maxi-Cosi stroller as I almost had my heart set on the Rock Star Baby, but I was reluctant to order it online, not like it and then still be out of pocket to ship it back. This stroller was in the store so you could see it and try it out. The only thing I couldn’t do was put the baby in it to see if she suited it. Immediately I loved it. The car seat slots right in and out of the frame which was easy to do and the toddler seat which looks like it can also be used for a newborn was very diverse. It can face forward, backwards and lay flat, which I would use for the newborn more than the upright position. I also liked the way it folded down…it was idiot proof. The instructions on how to collapse it are on the stroller itself and are numbered 1-4, BUT you do 1 and 2 at the same time and then steps 3-4 so really there are only 2 steps if my math is right. Anyway this should not be the biggest issue seems there is a baby on the way who is going to have more than 4 easy steps…I’m sure? Once the stroller is collapsed it is the most compact thing I have seen. I lifted it at 7 and a half months pregnant and it was reasonably lite. I could not weigh it, but I am used to lifting 40lbs in my job, so 33lbs is no big deal, plus the baby is going to be bigger than 33lbs one day so it is better to start building up the muscles now. As for the comments on the back wheels, they fold within the frame which is good, but they do stick up a little more when collapsed but unless you want to keep deflating them and blowing them up everytime you get it in and out of the car, there is not a lot you can do about it. As for the color, the stroller is very neutral for boy or girl and I must admit I would like more choice in colors, but beige and black is not the end of the world for right now. Overall it is the best stroller I have come across. It has the designer look, the flexibility and the great price tag. I am yet to find the perfect stroller that suits everyone BUT this one has given it its best shot and has come very close.

  16. JacobsMama on December 30th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Before my son was born we bought the peg perego p3. It was ok but it looks(and performs) too much like a basic stroller. I always had my eye on the sleek modern stroller styles. After tons of shopping and research I had decided on buying the much more expensive Quinny Buzz stroller.That day I had to go to Babies R Us …and There I saw it. I had read many good things about the maxi cosi carseats but I had never heard of their strollers. I couldn’t believe the price and how similar it is to the Quinny that I wanted so bad! I took it home that day and 2 months later I am still so happy with my purchase!!

  17. Tasha the proud new mom of a princess on December 31st, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This is a unique looking stroller. You have the option of having your little princess or prince face you or the world using the toddler attachment not the car seat. Its so light weight and easy to manuevur. The colors are perfect,its designed for either gender. I love the fact that if I’m going to the mail in the car all i need is the stroller base being that the car seat is already in the car, once i get there just pop the car seat onto the stroller base. If I’m taking the baby for a walk just use the toddler/infant seat. Everyone in my neighborhood calls it the “space mobile” because of the way the rain cover zips to the stroller. Now for the bad, I hate the fact that the carseat DOSE NOT come with a rain cover god forbid your out with the baby with the car seat attachment and it begins to rain. The rain shield that dose come with the toddler attachment can only be used for a short period of time because if you put a one year old child in the seat and connect the shield thier feet are so tight they cant move them. Also my biggest dislike is the fact that you have to discoonect both the toddler seat as well as the car seat to close the stroller base which makes it impossible to travel on public transportaion with the baby and stroller unless of course you have help. Lastly I did a little research and target sells the rain shield for the car seat, THANK GOD.

  18. Super Mom on January 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I am pregnant with my third and have been through so many strollers, this is by far the best. It even holds my 6 year old. Very smooth ride! Sidewalks and bad roads, No problem! It is a bit bulky but well worth it.

  19. Kati on January 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We just received this for our shower and honestly we can’t wait to start using it. It was easy to assemble. It is a bit bulky and the collapse does force you to take the seat out first but honestly so does the bugaboo. However, although it is slightly bulky, we were able to place the stroller into our BMW sadan without any problem and still have enough space to place other items. We also test rode it outside our house, it’s very sturdy and great on hard surfaces. The best part about this stroller is that you don’t need to buy a Snap and Go stroller since the car seats easly snaps on to the frame of the Foray Stroller. The color and style of this stroller is great for both genders. This stroller definitely has it all.

  20. G on January 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    SINCE MY DAUGHTER WAS BORN WE HAVE GONE THROUGH FOUR STOLLERS. WHEN SHE TURNED 8 MONTHS I REALIZED SHE WAS NOT HAPPY IN ANY OF THESE STOLLERS ,AND THIS WAS MAKING OUR OUTINGS A NIGHTMARE. NONE OF THEM GAVE SO MANY OPTIONS AS THE MAXI COSI STOLLER. MOST IMPORTANT FEATURES TO US MOMS THAT THIS STOLLER HAS ARE … RECLINING OPTIONS!!, CHANGING THE DIRECTION OF THE SEAT TO FACE YOU OR PUBLIC, THE HEIGHT OF THE SEAT ALLOWING BABY TO BE HIGHER, AND A GREAT SEAT BELT THAT IS EASY TO USE AND COMFORTABLE. I SEE MOMS WITH THE BAGABOO STARING AT OUR STOLLER WONDERING “WHAT IS THAT??”. THIS STOLLER ALLOWS YOUR BABY TO GROW AND STILL BE COMFORTABLE. IT REPLACES ALL YOUR STOLLERS LIKE THE SNAP N GO, THE TRAVEL SYSTEMS, THE UMBRELLA STOLLERS, AND LIGHTWIGHT ONES. MOST OF ALL THE MAXI COSI HAS THE BEST PRICE!! MY DAUGHTER IS NOW 9 MONTHS AND SHE LOVES GOING ON LONG WALKS HAVING THE OPTION TO SEE EVERYTHING OR TAKE A NAP.

  21. kelli on January 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Love the stroller for it’s extendable handlebar (tall husband), stylish look, shock absorbers, enclosed storage under seat. After reading all of the rave reviews on this site though, I’m surprised that no one mentioned how cheap and noisy the front two wheels are-they’re hollow plastic just like a cheap umbrella stroller. They make for a noisy ride esp on uneven pavement, but we didn’t notice that on the smooth floor in the store. The air-filled back tires are wonderful…why did they cheap out on the front?

  22. a first time city mom on February 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    we’re hesitant to write the review b/c we don’t want to share our fabulous find with everyone! we are in LOVE with the foray! we had our daughter in her car seat that attached to the universal frame for several months while we figured out what stroller to buy. while we could purchase the ever popular bugaboo we just didn’t want to spend the $, it seemed so silly. my husband came across the foray and it was love at first sight and after three months we still couldn’t be happier. it is a such a smooth ride for our little one when walking on the uneven nyc streets. it is super easy to move about, we go everywhere with it.

    granted there is a flaw or two, like the sun canapy doesn’t always block the sun (but this is no different from the bugaboo), it is a little too bulky to break down to take on a bus or subway or when in a restaurant (again, no different from the bugaboo) and when using the rain shield when you have your child facing you in the upright position, it is a little difficult to see her/him (but you don’t use the rain shield everyday and this is easily corrected by placing the child in the reclined position).

    overall, the foray rocks! it is the most perfect stroller if you are a parent who cruises around town with your tot and wants a super cool, smooth ride for a great price!

  23. A Mom on the run on February 11th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    The price is very attractive for something that is an exact copy of the pricy Bugaboo. However, there is no comparison in the quality of the fittings (plastic tires, lack of suspension, much thinner density of the denier fabric). Furthermore, this model just includes the seat but not a flat bed carriage option.

  24. Mom of 6 month old on February 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I just bought this stroller and I love it so far. We live in Seattle so I LOVE that the weather shield is so easy to apply, it just zips on and off. It is really light and has a lot of features. The seat has 3 positions and can face you or outward. So far I have no complaints! I have not tried to put it in my small car yet though.

  25. va mommy on February 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stroller. I have been using it for a few weeks and I love it in conjuntion with the maxi cosi infant car seat. I dont find it heavy or hard to use at all. About the front wheels being cheap. They are just not inflatable thats all. If you want to see cheap wheels look at the Gracos Chiccos or Evenflows, those are cheap platic strollers overall. the ride with this maxi cosi is very smooth. my husband was able to put the stroller togther in a heartbeat maybe 10 minutes, unlike other cheaper brands. Go ahead and spoil your baby with this stroller. It’s well worth it.

  26. NEW MOM on February 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    The best option of this stroller is that you can have the baby facing towards you or outward.

  27. Chic Mama on February 15th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    At first I thought this was a great stroller and my husband was happy he didnt have to spend the money on the Bugaboo. However after having my daughter for six weeks and being the busy mother I am, the Bugaboo is worth spending the extra money. Closing the stroller has been the hardest task and will hurt you if you arent careful. Then trying to lock it when you want to put the baby in takes just as much effort. I love the Maxi-Cosi carseat and have bought the Bugaboo stroller with the adapters and am much happier.

  28. jenben on February 18th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    The Foray stroller has been great! I have searched for awhile now for a dual direction seat on a stroller, and one that has a large roomy seat to accomodate my son. And the Foray does just this! (fyi….my son is 97% percentile, 24 lbs, 30 inches at 7 months, so it has been challenging to find him a stroller seat he can fit into comfortably.) (he did not fit into a bugaboo seat, nor the britax vigour, the seats were too small and snug fitting for him and the prices were much higher!) With this seat he has plenty of head and leg room to grow and the width of the seat has extra room to grow as well.

    I love that my son can face me or face out once he gets a little older. He now can sleep in his stroller b/c he is so comfortable, unlike our previous Graco that he hated (his head was above the seat frame already adn he couldn’t face us when we pushed him)!

    The stroller is well built and lightweight. It folds compactly, but you do need to remove the seat before collapsing the stroller and you can just store the seat on top of the stroller in your trunk. The handle is adjustable (3 positions) and has soft fabric around the top for your comfort, the fabric on the seat/sunshade/basket is nice and wipes easily, the harness system is great and easy to use and it won’t pinch yours or your baby’s fingers and it even has strap covers so the strap won’t rub your baby’s neck or down by his legs, the extra large canopy is great, and the rain/wind protector is an added bonus! It also has a nice sized cup holder. The storage basket is accesible from either the front or the back where you can unzip it, I am able to fit a blanket, a small diaper bag and a small travel milk/bottle cooler (medela brand I have) and it just fit. I also love the one step braking system!

    The wheels are just fine too. The back wheels are large and they are inflatible, where the front ones are plastic and have built in suspension and they can be set to stationary or swivel positions, all which make for a smooth ride for your little one.

    The Foray makes my son very comfortable and it’s comfotable for mom/dad to use and it looks great too! I would highly recommend this stroller! I am very happy with our purchase! 🙂

  29. mom of 2 boys on February 18th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Bought this yesterday. Someone told me when I was prego the first time that you will go through about 5 strollers. Well we are on #4 (snap and go, umbrella, pram, double stroller). This stroller is really easy to put together, stylish, great sized shade cover and priced right. Couple of things I over looked but not that big of a deal – no pocket up high near the handle, you have to reach down to the basket area, would have preferred some drink/snack attachment for the babe and the rain cover zips from the top not from the bottom. It has an elastic around the boot area so on a cold day if you want to keep all your blankets in, the rain cover doesn’t really work. We had it on and folded the plastic under the front bar. Having to take the seat off to fold is a bit of a pain but our vehicle is big enough to put it in assembled. All is all, good for the price, easy assemble, looks good and has good features with being able to use with the carseat and as the child grows. I put our 3 year old in it too and he fit no problem. This was a purchase for our 10 mth old.

  30. MOE on February 23rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Me and my husband had our first baby and we got the travel system by Graco and from day one our daughter hated the stroller and the car seat. She would scram and cry in the stroller. So we ended up carrying her everywhere and i started looking around for a new stroller the one she would like. I looked at the Bugaboo, Britax, Mountain Buggy and much more and none of them i liked too big, too bulky, too pricey so one day we saw the Foray stroller my Maxi-Cosi and i absolutely loved it so my husband got it. My daughter loves this stroller its very roomy, she can face me and the other way (i haven’t tried facing her the other way yet) but she gets the smooth ride and usually sleeps in the stroller the whole time shes in it. It got the adjustable handle bar which i love too (i’m short). It got the stylish color that can be used for a boy or a girl. It folds so easy even that you have to take the seat off and it fits in the trunk of a not very big car with NO problems. It did have the one cup holder come with it which is not really enough for me so i found me this accessory that attaches across the handle bar it has two cup holders and bunch of pockets that you can put your cell phone, ipod, etc…and there is another one that can go on the safety bar that goes front of a baby that has a snack holder and two cup holders which is very nice. And they fit most of the strollers. I just love this stroller so much that i would tell all the parents who searches for a perfect and safe stroller for their children.

  31. Jenn on March 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is one great stroller. I was so happy to find an affordable stroller that allows me to have my son face me or face the world. That was a huge selling point with this stroller. When I got it home and used it on the streets I was even happier. This is a great stroller for not a lot of money. My husband, son and I love it.

  32. zofias mommy on March 25th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is amazing! To every one comparing it to the Bugaboo stop. They aren’t even the same type of stroller. The only thing they have in common is a similiar look and a reversing seat. Other wise this stroller stands apart because it has different qualities and it is not an all terrain stroller. But it does have a smooth ride, a cup holder, and a decent basket (could be bigger). If you are looking for a very nice stroller where your baby can face you or the world, that is great for walks and mall going, easy to use, and won’t break the bank look no further. Just to note this stroller fits in the trunk of my VW Beetle. But when taken out of the trunk and put back together (snap seat on) it becomes a full size stroller. I gave the stroller 4 stars because the front wheels could be better quality and the basket is just decent not awesome.

  33. SON HO on March 25th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I spent almost one hour to look at this one. That perfect stroller I have seen. Compact folding, forward or rear facing, 3 positions for recline, high secured and UV protect. What you want more on this one? get it!

  34. mommy2James on March 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have searched high & low for a reversible stroller that I liked…this is number 3 for me…not to mention all of the other ones I already had (snap & go, umbrella, travel system). The Kolcraft Contours 4 wheel was my first…the concept is what I wanted, but it weighed about 500lbs. and my son didn’t like how he was always reclined. Reversible stroller #2 was the Bumbleride Flyer…what an expensive piece of garbage that was!!! So, after looking high and low..I found the Foray…I was able to try it out in the store…They had the Bugaboo also…I loved the Foray and it was so similar to the Bugaboo, I can’t imagine why anyone would spend that kind of money on a stroller that will only be used for a couple years…not to mention the fact that if you take it to an amusement park or somewhere that you have to leave it…it could get stollen! I have become a little obsessed with finding the perfect stroller and I think I finally found one that fits my criteria. Yes, it does kinda stink that you have to take the seat off to fold it….but that’s the only downfall it has in my opinion but as I can see it…you can’t have it all!

  35. Texas mom of three on March 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have been lookong at the Bugaboo for a long time and of course like most other mothers love the look but hated the price. Well apparently today was my lucky day. I went to babies R us to get something else and came across this stroller, I immediately took the stroller down and tried my 7 month old in it. She fit perfectly and seemed to love being in it. I then practiced taking it apart and putting it back together. It is pretty much dummy proof. I mean honeslty anyone who says it is hard to work must not have actually looked at the parts they are numbered 1-4. Yes you have to remove the seat to fold it but as many other people have said before you have to do that to all the strollers like this one. I bought it, it took me about 5 minutes from start to finish to assembles this ( no screws wheel caps or hard to attach pieces) It is amazing. My 43 lb three yr old fits in it also. Yes it is a little heavy but honestly even my metrolite felt heavier than it says it was. Overall I would recomend this to anyone looking for a stroller like this. It is exactly the same and half the price!! Great buy!

    Great stroller. I have an umbrella type (Combi) that I have used up until now with my infant seat, but had to get something more durable for walks (I have practically worn the treads off of it). This stroller is it!!! This stroller has great options (reclines, front v. rear facing) and is very easy to handle. Perfect for walks, hikes, tooling around town. Love that my daughter sits higher and can see more. Highly recommend it!

  37. sister on April 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I really loved this stroller!!It strolls easily>

  38. NewMom on April 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stroller with so many options. I love that my daughter can face in or out. She sits higher in this stroller than most, so when we are out she can see and participate in activities.

    We recently went to an aquarium and I saw so many parents taking their kids in and out of strollers all day. My daughter was able to stay cozy in her seat and see every exhibit. When it was lunchtime, she pulled right up to our table and could “eat” with us.

    It is wonderful for walks in the neighborhood or at our local park. I have had no issues with folding it down and it stows easily in my trunk. Highly recommend it to any parent.

  39. soon to be mommy on April 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We are still waiting for our little one however we already purchased and assembled our stroller to be sure it will be what were looking for. We were going to go with a Quinny which is 545 and even considered a Bugaboo which is close to 1000…we saw the reviews here, then it was recommended to us by friends who have it in Europe, and finally saw it in the store. It is VERY affordable…EASY EASY EASY to assemble..I am 9 mo prego and assembled it in 5 minutes =) …and have been practicing closing and using with the Mico infant car seat!!! We are IN LOVE WITH IT thus far and hope that our little one will as well…it feels very comfy and looks very stylish and city friendly!!!!

  40. Zack's Mom on April 5th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Great, lightweight and VERY easy to push around! The only con I see is that it doesn’t have a tray to hold car keys, nuks, small items, etc…it does come with a cup holder though. Also, the storage bag underneath is a little smaller then I’m used, but I just got a smaller diaper bag to fit in it. Overall though, love it! 🙂 From the research I did on the Maxi Cosi vs. the Bugaboo, I didn’t really see many differences except for the HUGE price difference!

  41. Chloe's Busy Mommy on April 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller has the sporty look most mom’s today are looking for and is extremely light however it is not easy to use. It is extremely easy to assemble but after comparing this to the Bugaboo I was more than willing to deal with the same bulkiness with no fuss. We returned this stroller and were more than willing to spend the money on the real deal.

  42. City Mom on April 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a decent stroller but it is definitely a cheap/generic version of the Bugaboo. It’s like buying a Kia that looks like a BMW….the quality just isn’t there. I purchased this stroller and ended up returning it and buying the Bugaboo. I wanted to save money and give it a try but it is just not as nice. The parts and materials are really cheap and car seat and base seat don’t click in as easily as the Bugaboo. If you live in the city and will be using your stroller on rough sidewalks and roads buy the real deal. I am not happy I had to pay 3 times as much for a Bugaboo, but I have to admit the quality of it is so much better. There’s a reason the Bugaboo is loved so much.

  43. New mom of a 3 month old boy on April 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My partents bought us the Graco stroller…..I left it out there house and bought this one. So much better. Very easy to use in very tight places…and stores very nice in the car. I love that my little boy can look at me or not. It is very nice to travel with. I would buy this stroller again.

  44. 1st time mom in nyc on April 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stroller that is great for city streets with the larger wheels and suspension. It steers and rides so smoothly and has all the options you need!

  45. kenajas mom on April 21st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Best stroller I’ve ever used, and trust me, I’ve used a lot. 🙂 The only bad thing is the fact that you have to take the seat off before getting it in the car. But overall its a really good stroller.

  46. New Mom on April 22nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stoller. I wish that this item was out when I first had my daughter. She’s now 7 months old and she loves this stroller. The main reason I bought it was because she can still face me while I’m pushing her. Yes, it is not the Buguboo, because if it was it would cost 3 times as much. But it is a comporable to it for the price. It’s especially nice that you don’t have to buy all the accessories seperately, it comes with a cup holder which is very handy as well as the basket. I wish there was a tray or pockets near the handle to put my cell phone or keys. But I would highly recommend this stroller. You do have to take the seat out to fold it, but once you have done it a couple times it’s pretty easy.

  47. Ayesha mom to 3 on April 25th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I purchased this stroller after going to Babies R Us to purchase a higher end umbrella stroller. My fiance saw this one, played around with it a few times and fell in love. Me being the practical one had to look high and low over the McClarens etc., but after all of that, I found I loved this one too. I like that the kids can ride up high and face in or out. The steering is wonderful, it turns and glides easily. I was able to push this stroller with my very heavy three year old in it, my 5 month old in a sling, my hand coralling my 4 year old and my other hand pushing with absolutely no problems. All three of my kids love this stroller, and so do we! The adjustable handle is great, my fiance is 6’5″ and I am sooo not. Great suspension and pretty good storage. All in all great features and a comparable price. Sure, it is not a compact item as far as storage goes, but I am willing to give that up, I couldn’t be happier with my purchase!

  48. Sean Macaroni on May 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We tested every stroller babies r us sold and fell in love with the Foray. Not to mention the reality of buying couple of strollers though out the years.
    1. Travel System
    2. Compact Stroller
    3. Cheap stroller for Disneyland
    Although I was itching to buy it that day, I waited couple of days to do more reearch online and visit other baby stores. I did more test with in the store and bought it. It’ been 2 weeks and about 8hours into using the stroller and we smile every time we take my son out to the Shopping. I love the idea this would most likely be our one and only stroller, since we combo’d it with the Mico infant car seat in the course of our sons development aside from a cheap fold stroller for emergencies.
    *Smooth ride
    *Easy to fold
    *Light Weight
    *stylish
    *Adjustable Handle
    *One touch brake

  49. Mariuma on May 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Me and my husband did so much research before actually buying this stroller/carseat system. We were going to buy the Orbit system which was $900 until we stumbled upon this at babiesrus and we fell in love with it…i couldnt wait to deliver my baby so that i can use it and now that my precious baby girl is finally here she loves it too! the stroller is so smooth the shocks are unreal baby doesnt feel a thing! this stoller is a must have!

  50. Colleen on May 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is fantastic, it is easy to use, lightweight and folds up easily. I live in a city and the wheels and steering are perfect for navigating. I also love the storage underneath.

    I have only used it with the Mico carseat, so I can’t speak to the carrier it comes with, but so far we love it and highly recommend

  51. Practical first time mom on May 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I cannot believe these other reviews. I had this stroller for 3 months and returned it without hesitation. This would be a great stroller if your only using the (sold separately) infant car seat. It looks great, its very lighweight, sleek, and it steers very well with a smooth ride. I’m sure this would be great for Disney Land, since the seat can sit straight up with back support. However the basket on the bottom doesn’t store too much of anything. Those stroller hooks are a must. It is not easily stowed. You have to remove the seat part in order to fold it up, and they store separately taking up your entire trunk. Not durable at all. For the money it cost it is very cheaply made. The black foam around the seat and handle is easily torn. The way it folds you almost always scrape the handle. It doesn’t stand up once it’s folded. I found this stroller to be too much of a distraction. Meaning all the time your spending trying to take it apart to stow it your attention is totally taken from your child. Not good when your alone. Terrible for travel. I felt safer using my snugli when alone, and using the stroller only when with someone so they can help.

  52. MOE on May 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I got this stroller about 5 months ago and i keep falling in love with it. Every time i go out with it people just stare. I even noticed the people that have Bugaboos stare too. They would glance on it and then turn around and just stare. My daughter is 10 months now and she loves it. If she falls asleep in the car i just transfer her to the stroller when we are out and she wont even wake up. The ride is so smooth baby wont feel a thing even on dirt roads. Ive tried it. Took it down to the beach. Does awesome in sand. I just absolutely love it. Every mother out there should have one.

  53. nina on May 23rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    this stroller is the best one that my brother could buy me i was looking at strollers for 1 month and this one is the one that i loved i took it 4 a test drive today and it was great i used the car seat and my son loved it he was comfortable and he slept the whole ride .

  54. Martina on May 23rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Our baby loves sleeping in her stroller and we like it because it is so light and it was easy to put together. You can go everywhere with this stroller it is so easy to turn, go back, make rotation and even go down the steps.
    I like the colors and all the futures.

  55. New Mom on May 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I can’t believe some of the reviews on here have compared this stroller to the Bugaboo. It may look similar but it is so cheap…the fittings and parts are plastic and flimsy…and it doesn’t fold well! Agree with the reviewer that called it a Kia that looks like a BMW. Do yourself a favor and get the real thing.

  56. mom of Austin the little daredevil on May 29th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! We originally had a combi travel system (which didnt last more than 4 months). I love the look and function of the bugaboo types but an $800 stroller…come on. This has the same look and function at a fraction of the cost. Everywhere I go people always ask me about the stroller. My son is 7 months now and I my favorite part is how I can have him face me (like when we are at fairs and stuff). I would reccomend this to any mom who want the option of versatility. With my nect child I am even going to get the car seat to go with it.

  57. B's Mama on June 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Have it for 5 months and absolutely love the way it look, feels, fits, and functions. Easy to use, easy to store, very light, sleek and durable. I wouldn’t even compare it to Bugaboo. Bugaboos are way too expensive and difficult to stroll. I would never exchange it to Bugaboo what so ever. I also bought an infant car sit which goes along with a stroller. It fits in perfectly, and easy to switch to the regular stroller sit. The most important thing is that I can put it the way that my baby can face me! It’s a great investment and complete satisfaction!

  58. Angela the busy mom on June 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Well i went to the babyrus to buy the bugaboo one and then i found this one. It is so much better and less money. My baby love to sit in it.i can’t say anything bad about this stroller. it’s not hard to fold.

  59. CCG on June 8th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Stroller was easy to use with infant carrier/car seat. Good tires, easy to use brake, adjustable handles… Had no problems breaking down stroller. It was clearly marked with numbers to show how to break down the stroller. So easy… Easy to maneuver and sturdy!

  60. Sweet Demise on June 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Amazing…amazing…amazing! It couldn’t get any better! When you first look at the stoller, it seems like there are too many steps involved in folding/unfolding it. But it is actually very easy to do so.

    This stroller is also a very smooth ride for the baby. It’s wheels turn easily in all directions without resistance. We have also received compliments on the strollers appearance, even from strangers passing by. We absolutely love it!

  61. DADDY OH on June 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My wife and I went to Babys R Us several times before purchasing this stroller. We pulled out every stroller they sold and pushed them around until purchasing the Foray with the Mico infant carseat. If you’re looking for a stroller that is built well, light, folds up and down with ease, and is compatible with an infant car seat, then this is the one. I looked at hundreds of strollers online but was unwiling to blindly purchase something without a demo of it first. This stroller is comparible with the really expensive strollers like Bugaboo but are half the price.
    I’m sure the Bugaboos are nice but for $800+, they better change dirty diapers too!

    Bottom line, this stroller rides awesome, folds up/down with ease, is very stylish and compatible with an infant carseat.

  62. Julie on June 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My baby and I love this stroller. He is still in the Maxi Cosi car seat which easily attaches to the stroller. We go for long walks on the board walk and he sleeps most of the time. Many people mistake it for the bugaboo which is ridiculously expensive although a great stroller. Here are the differences…the Maxi Cosi car seat attaches to the stroller without the added expense of an adapter unlike the bugaboo. It also comes with accessories like a cup holder and rain guard unlike the bugaboo. All accessories for the bugaboo are extra. Both stroller seats can face forward or backwards but the seat has to be lifted and reattached on the Maxi Cosi. The bugaboo handle simply swivels back and forth. This option seems unimportant to me, however, because I like the small wheels which steer in the front position rather than in the back when you move the handle on the bugaboo. Although the Maxi Cosi is very sturdy, the bugaboo is clearly made of stronger material and will probably last many years. I plan to have two or three children and do not need a stroller to last twenty years. In fact, I will be purchasing a double stroller when I have my next child. The biggest difference is that the Maxi Cosi does not come with a bassinet like the bugaboo. I do wish that Maxi Cosi would offer a bassinet as an optional feature. I chose to give up this feature because it is only good until the baby is about three months old since they want to see their surroundings at this point and may be starting to sit up. If your baby will be born in the winter somewhere cold, the bassinet is probably not necessary. The canopy on the car seat and stroller seat do not provide much coverage from the sun. I resolved this by purchasing a SPF 50 canopy for $14.99 from […] I am very pleased with all of my Maxi Cosi gear! Hope this helps.

  63. Jalen's Mommy Charlene on June 11th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    When I first saw this stroller, I completely fell in love with it and had to have it. It is so easy to move around and my son is so comfortable in it. Very lightweight. I love the fact that I can have my son positioned facing me and that he can lay down comfortably when he falls asleep. I have gotten a lot of compliments on this stroller in the mall. And highly recommend it.

  64. gina on June 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    the stroller overall is decent. i’m using the frame w/ the matching infant carrier because my daughter is only 7 weeks. it looks stylish and wipes clean easily. the frame is easy to fold after you get the hang of it. however, there’s three major problems that i have 1)the frame has alot of scratches from taking it in/out the car (the handle rubs on the ground when i unfold the frame) 2)the frame takes up 80% of my nissan, altima trunk 3)the basket can barely hold a small diaper bag. my biggest fear is not having enough room in the trunk for the FRAME and SEAT. the manual says not to use the seat (the one that comes w/ the unit), until the child can sit upright. well when i have to drive where am i going to put the frame and the seat, when my 4 yr old son will be seating in his booster sit and the baby will be in the infant carrier? i guess i’ll use the front seat of the car if i need extra room. but there won’t be any room for other passengers. you definitely need a SUV to fit everything and everyone.

  65. New parents ........ on June 21st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My husband and I just received this stroller as a gift. It is quite the number! It has several different uses, handles well and is fashionable. If you want a look that not many people have, this is the way to go. It’s unlike all the typical “travel systems” that look large and overbearing. This stroller will last a long time! It has a lock on the rear tires as well as the two upfront.

  66. First time mom on June 21st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is absolutely wonderful! I am a mom who likes to get out and go a lot… and this stroller has been great for me! It makes a travel system with the Maxi-Cosi Mico infant car seat and it is very easy to use. It is a little heavier than some of the other strollers out there, but I think it is well worth the extra pounds. It folds and unfolds super easy and rides like a dream. Inside, outside, pavement, grass… it strolls through it all with ease. My baby girl is 4 1/2 months old and we have never had a problem with it. For the price, you can’t beat it!!

  67. matt on June 27th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    The Best stroller for your money! So much better than other strollers for the same amount of money. not too mention it also looks great. and it can be a travel system with the maxi cosi Mico car seat. Also it is not 4 steps to fold it really its only 2 and very very easy! 1&2 is done at the same time as is 3&4. we are so happy we bought the stroller. We just wish we had it with our first baby.

  68. Schnuzler's Mama on June 29th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I fell in love with how this stroller looks and the fact that my son could either watch the world or look at me, but after using it twice one of the chest straps came unsewn. Then only after another month the button on the handle that operates the telescoping function just fell out! I am so bummed that I spent the money on this piece of [*]. Honestly, my little Chicco stroller is better put together than this hunk of junk.

  69. seattlemom on July 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I registered for this stroller because of the cute design aspect and liked the idea that the chair could be switched to face backward. But when I went to testdrive the stoller at BabiesRUs, I was incredibly disappointed.

    You should know that in order to collapse this stroller you have to remove the chair – so that it becomes 2 pieces (not convenient for travel!). It’s flimsy, the sun shade is very difficult to adjust and when you do it rocks the whole stroller (I’m afraid it would wake even the heaviest sleeping baby). While we were there the sales girl was trying to demonstrate it’s usage and the chair was jammed, she couldn’t get it out.

    I was very unimpressed! We ended up going with Chicco stroller that is much easier to collapse and is lighter.

    Beware, the only redeeming quality is it’s design esthetic.

  70. First Time Parent on July 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I registered for this stroller because i love the car seat, but i recently went to babies r us to check how it worked. well, i wasn’t happy at all. turns out that the stroller reclines in very uncomfortable positions. first one is is a 90 degree angle, second is regular sitting position, and third is definitly not for sleeping.
    The adjusting handle to your height gets stuck and is very hard to move around.
    Its back wheel had no air in it.
    Im not a picky person, its just i dont want my baby riding in a car seat all day when she could be comfortable in another stroller.
    although i must say it has great navigation!
    I would only recommend this stroller for much older kids.

  71. Mom on the Go! on July 5th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is such a good value. It has all the function and style of the very expensive strollers, but is a fraction of the cost. I can take this thing on city sidewalks, dirt roads and walks, cobblestones, anywhere and it performs great. It is really easy to get the Mico infant seat attached and it folds up really easily. Two steps and into the trunk.

    If you have a tiny car, you would not look at this type of stroller system anyway. You would buy a compact umbrella stroller. So I can’t figure out why people are complaining about it. You would need to think about that no matter WHAT kind of stroller you buy… We drive a normal size sedan and have no problems.

  72. Danielle on July 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My husband and I looked for months and months at every stroller there is out there, we looked at all from the Bugaboo down to the travel systems in the stores… But this is the stroller that really suits all of our needs.. He is very tall and Im vertically challenged, SO the adjustable handle works wonderful for both of us with out any discomfort. We also like the fact that our baby can face us and recline in 3 positions or she can face forward and have the multi-positions as well.
    Another great feature about this stroller is that if you take your baby with you to a restaurant you can pull the stroller right up to the table and use as a high chair.. (Can be used in forward or backwards positions .. All you do is put the set in the most upright position and push up to the table.. with the baby in the backwards position you can put the handle down using the fold down buttons 1 & 2 )
    We also have the infant car seat by maxi-cosi and it is very easy to use with this stroller.

    The only downfall I have noticed so far is that the basket isn’t big enough for my diaper bag , So i did have to purchase clips that are made to hold diaper bags.. which work great by the way.

    This is all around a great purchase and is easy to use and fun for you and baby….

  73. RY on July 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have researched for almost my entire pregnancy for the perfect stroller. Instead of going for the more expensive Bugaboo or Uppa Baby, we chose Maxi-Cosi and we are very happy about it. Our baby is now two months old, she loves the car seat and would sleep in it every time we go for a ride. As the names states, the car seat is very cosy. The only complain we have is the material is quite hot and the shade is loose. (But you can buy after market shades which is larger anyways).

    The best part is we can slide the car seat in and out of the stroller so easily it’s not a hassle to go in a taxi or go to a restaurant. Also, you can rock the car seat to soothe your baby back to sleep!

    The stroller itself is sturdy and easy to fold. The display model in Babies R Us may have been damaged ‘cos their handle bar is stuck. But ours works perfectly. It’s a good feature ‘cos we are not tall parents so the handle bar height is perfect for us. The key to unfold the stroller is to unlock the orange tag. After a few practices, you will not have problem taking it to places!

  74. new mom on July 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is so cheap. The quality of it’s parts are horrible. I can’t believe people would even think of comparing it to a Bugaboo. Do yourself a favor and buy the real thing.

  75. Just my opinion on July 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I researched strollers for 7 months before purchasing this one. I knew that I wanted a reversible stroller and was willing to spend the $$ for it. I visited all the baby boutiques in our area and had my choices narrowed down to the Uppa Baby Vista ($699) and the Rockstar stroller ($699, now discontinued). Imagine my surprise when I came across the Foray! Not only does it function the same: reversible seat, telescoping handle, one foot brake, locking front wheels etc. some of the features are better. For example on the Vista you have to use the toe of your shoe to unlock the wheels. The Foray has a one foot touch brake system. The Foray also come standard with a cup holder. No other high end stroller that I know of has that. Both of the other choices have a bassinet option but that wasn’t top dollar important to me. Note that you can buy the infant seat by Maxi Cosi ($169) to have a travel system. The cost is comparable to these other strollers but you have a car seat. Just something to consider.

    If you go to you tube you can look up all these strollers and see how they work before you buy. The Foray does have a funky fold but in the end it really is the same as other high end strollers like the Toro and yes even Bugaboo has a similiar fold. I see alot of people complaining about the stroller seat having to be removed for stowing. Keep in mind that most high end strollers are like this. One that isn’t is the Toro. If you want a high end stroller with out the high price tag the Foray is the way to go.
    With that said I use my Foray for walks around my neighborhood, the mall, and have even use it for jogging with the front wheels locked. Both my three (almost four) year old and new born have found the stroller comfortable. Maxi Cosi recommends the Foray for 6 months and up but my 4 week old is just fine in the forward facing complete recline position. I gave the Foray four stars because the toddler seat is a little difficult for me to remove, though my husband has no problems, and it doesn’t have additional accesories to buy, however it does come with a rainshield, cup holder, and undercarriage basket. Hope this helps.

  76. new mom on July 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    i really like this stroller! and for those who say its cheap thing, i dont think so… probably they just got bad luck i guess… i havent use the seat because my baby is 2 months old, but with the car seat it works wonders! i love the back wheels, you can ride anywhere! it is not heavier than a normal travel system, so dont hesitate about this.. 2 thumbs up on this stroller!

  77. nika on July 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    let me say i do like this stroller while the breaking down and putting up can be a hassle i do like this stroller my son gets a smooth ride and he loves being it and the fact that i can see him makes me as a mom very happy i brought this stoller when it was only [$] overall good but could be a lil better but very happy with my stroller .

  78. Texas mom of three on July 21st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My husband and I have now had this stroller for six months. I still love it as much as the day we brought it home. I keep seeing all of these comments about it being difficult to use and cheaply made. I think they must be operater error problems. Since purchasing the stroller we have had little to no issue with it at all. YES you have to take it apart to stow it, however that is something you have to do with almost all higher end strollers. It rides smoothly. fold easily and my daughter loves riding in it. I can’t count the amount of times we have used it as a high chair in resturaunts. With the floding handle bar it allows you to roll right up to a table and your baby is at the perfect height to eat. There are not too many out there you can do this with. For any new parent out there who is looking for a great stroller without the huge price tag this is IT! For those who have the money to go out and purchase a Bugaboo great! But for those who want something very similar for half the cost the Foray is the way to go!

  79. ELIZABETH on July 25th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    When I first saw this stroller, I completely fell in love with it and had to have it. It is so easy to move around and my son is so comfortable in it. Very lightweight. I love that I can have my son positioned facing me and that he can lay down comfortably when he falls asleep. I have gotten a lot of compliments on this stroller It couldn’t get any better! When you first look at the stroler you think is not easy to use but is sper easy and fun haves everithing and the prise is good was time somebody make a nice stroller with a good prise and beautiful!!!

    and to the people with this opinion! velow
    I can’t believe some of the reviews on here have compared this stroller to the Bugaboo. It may look similar but it is so cheap…the fittings and parts are plastic and flimsy…and it doesn’t fold well! Agree with the reviewer that called it a Kia that looks like a BMW. Do yourself a favor and get the real thing.

    jajajajajajaj jajaj jajaj jajaj what do you think !! ????
    if we like this stroller thats are problem i love my stroller is so cool and maybe we like ship staff but we dont like your fake opinion !! lol

    I just absolutely love it. Every mother out there should have one.buy it!!!

  80. Mish, the walking mom on July 31st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Overall I am very pleased with this product. I walk around 4 miles a day and this stroller provides a very smooth ride for my Mr. B.

    I love the fact that you can turn the child to face outward or towards you. This allows me to face him away from the sun on our walks.

    There are two down falls. One, one the carseat the canopy isn’t very sturdy, it constantly falls. I had to use a sheet to keep my baby covered on the walks.

    Two, BEAWARE THAT IF YOU GET A FLAT BACK TIRE OTHER THAN JUST LOOSING AIR FROM NORMAL WEAR AND TEAR YOU HAVE TO REPLACE IT. MY TIRE GOT A GOAT HEAD STICKER IN IT AND I HAD TO PAY $64 TO REPLACE. THEY DO NOT RECOMMEND PATCHING IT!

  81. B on August 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My husband and I were looking for a stroller which would be compatible with the Maxi Cosi Mico carseat and came across this at Babies R Us. We were immediately drawn to the style of it and once we gave it a test drive we immediately fell in love with it. It is smooth, easy to manuver, has great suspension, provides options on how baby can be faced, provides options on the level of the handlebar based on height and has a one click brake system!

  82. Eli's Mom on August 4th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I luv this stroller. I really wanted the Bugaboo, this is just as good only cheaper. Everytime I go out with my son in this stroller, people stop me to ask where I got this stroller! A great buy!

  83. Mom of 15 month old and pregnant on August 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller for my one year old because she seemed to want something that would let her sit up straighter than her Graco and had more back support. I also liked that you can position the seat to face you or the other direction. The stroller is very complicated to open and close. I was used to my other much cheaper stroller that I could open with one hand. With this stroller you have to unhinge a plastic piece that keeps it together, then perform 4 other steps to assemble it every time you want to use it and disassemble it to get it back in the car. This requires both hands for almost every step. The storage compartment underneath is very small and so there is nowhere to put or hang a normal size (or even small) diaper bag. Every time I go somewhere I have to take diapers, wipes, and a couple of toys out of my diaper bag and put them in the tiny compartment and hope that I don’t have to run out to the car to get something that I need. It only has one cup holder so that does not serve as additional space. The actual seat that comes apart from the frame for every use is one rigid piece and difficult to place in the car. I have had this stroller for 5 months now and it is so unfriendly that I actually dread going places and having to take it out. Today I went back to my Graco and was so delighted when I could open it in one easy motion and close it in one step. I could fit my whole diaper bag in its compartment and my daughter could put her juice in front of her on her tray while I had my thermos in my cup holder. I cannot express what a colossal waste of money this stroller has been. PLEASE CONSIDER THESE COMMENTS ON ITS PRACTICALITY before you spend so much money.

  84. busy pregnant mom on August 8th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller for my one year old and I have had it for about 6 months. I have now gone back to my cheap Graco stroller. This stroller is complicated to assemble and disassemble. I actually dread having to use it. It requires multiple steps. Some people say that it is actually two steps because 1&2, and 3&4 are done at the same time. That is not very accurate. You have to use both hands to assemble and disassemble this stroller. It breaks down into two pieces which I also find very inconvenient and cumbersome and I drive a large SUV. I cannot imagine trying to get this into a sedan’s trunk. It would have to be practically empty. It has practically no storage area and you cannot fit a diaper bag into the small compartment provided. You can buy a diaper bag hook to attach to the stroller but then the bag will still be in your way. It has only one cup holder so this does not provide extra space. My Graco is an inexpensive stroller and it is much easier to use and much more kid and mom friendly plus the Maxi Cosi doesn’t seem any better made. I regret buying this stroller. I do not recommend it to anyone. I truly dislike the Maxi Cosi Foray. I have seen reviews that say that all of the high end strollers come apart into two pieces. If that is true then i will stick to the better engineered inexpensive strollers since I do not see the need to spend hundreds of dollars to impress other parents.

  85. Caden's Mommy on August 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller has been amazing! I am using it with the mico infant seat and have no problems. The infant seat is so easy to put in and get out! At first I found this stroller complicated to get ready and break down but as soon as my son got here and I’m using it often I have no issues. I drive a sedan and it folds down perfectly to fit in my trunk…even in the 2 piece form.
    This stroller has great versatility and works wonders when the the wheels are converted to a jogging stroller. Most outings are just my son and I and we have no problems with easy breakdown and go. I also love the sleek look of this stroller without paying the prices for the bugaboo…which I don’t regret purchasing the Maxi-Cosi instead.

    I hang the diaper bad over the handle bar, width wise, when shopping and it is never in my way or moves due to the handle bar material. I would receommend this to my friends every day!

  86. mother of 3 on August 21st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    this was just the perfect stroller. i bought this stroller and put it together in minutes. has a smooth ride and numerous comfort positions for the baby when using the stroller seat. i couldn’t be any happier. colors are very neutral. no complaints.

  87. meltdown3373 on August 23rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    When I received this while I was expecting, I was delighted and could hardly wait to use it. Along with the Mico carseat, it was a lot more than we had intended to spend, ($500.00 +) but figured for #3 (and the last) it would be worth it. Well, I have to say after just over 5 months of light use on the main stroller seat, (and by light I mean occasional trips to [@], and a few walks to the bus stop) I am very saddened and disappointed that the ribs on the canopy have come through the fabric and are working their way out. I loved this stroller after having Graco strollers for the first 2. It turned easily (even if large) and rolled along very smoothly. I found that while initally cumbersome, the ease of use overcame my inital reservations. I leave the stroller base up from the 3/4 position so all I have to do to use it (for my carseat) is raise the handle (1/2). Maxi Cosi Customer service is questionable. You must leave a message and wait for them to call you back. I am still waiting to hear back from them on how to remove my carseat cover, a call I placed more than a month ago. I now am wondering whether to return my stroller to BRU or to try going through Maxi Cosi (which is actually Dorel Juvenile Group: also makers of the comparable Quinny), and whether I really want another Foray at all. I love my stroller, but question whether this is a problem that could happen again. This is not an problem I would expect from a $300 + stroller. I expected better quality for my money. I would recommend, but with reservation.

  88. javabyrd on August 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We purchased this stroller for our newborn son because our Graco stroller was falling to pieces (we used it for 2 1/2 years with our daughter). We did not purchase the car seat. The stroller is fantastic for maneuverability, and the bottom bag fits plenty – even a whole diaper bag!

    The downside is that the stroller is 2 pieces, so you put it together (easily) to use. However, our handle has gotten scraped up because it needs to be set down somewhere before it can unfold.

    Overall, my favorite feature is that I can use this for my 5 month old and my 3 year old with almost no adjusting. My son was using this stroller in the flat position when he was 2 months. Great to have around because either kid can take a ride.

  89. busy mom on August 27th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I like this stoller because it ride very smooth.This stoller very easy to use.

  90. Tika on August 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller i’ve had it for 3months now, i don’t see much fuss about it maybe because i drive a mini-van, so i take the stroller apart and put both compartments in the trunk! My 2 sons ages 11&12 have no problem takin the stroller apart either so far no wear and tear no flat tires and i too walk everyday! So to those who dislike the stroller if u have your reciept and original box take it back and get your money[…]!! But i Love this stroller and my daughter does too.

  91. HAPPY MOM on August 30th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I LIKE EVERYTHIMG ABOUT IT. IT DOESN’T IT TAKE TO MUCH SPACE.ITS NOT BULK. EASY TO SET UP. LIGHTWEIGHT. IT HAVE A SMALL BASKET. EVERYTIME IAM AT THE STORE I GET STOPPED. THEY WANT TO KNOW WHERE I GOT IT.

  92. mamacita on September 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Love the storller. Great ride, easy to manuver. Once you get used to it, collapsing and setting up is a breeze, just takes a couple weeks of using to get efficient. Compared to other travel systems (we use it with the mico car seat), the frame is fairly lightweight and easily stows in our sedan’s trunk.

    Also, we get compliments on its looks daily. All of the benefits of the high end strollers without the price tag and stigma! Great solution.

  93. Cheryl on September 11th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is the only stroller that my little guy will sit in for an extended amount of time. Yes, it requires more effort to take apart and fold, but you get the benefit of facing the child both ways. I don’t see any other way to do it. We do a lot of shopping, walking around the neighborhood and traveling, and this product handles well. One of the best features is that my child sits higher in this stroller than any others (except for the Stokke Xplory Stroller). That was another important reason for my purchase. Passing through doors is a breeze because this stroller maneuvers so wonderfully.
    Sometimes the locking tab falls back into position and I have a hard time unfolding the frame. The battle of unfolding then becomes a bit comical. Other than that, we love our Maxi-Cosi Foray. Because of the price, I do recommend purchasing the additional warranty.

  94. First Time Mom on September 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I was about to buy this stroller when I decided to do some comparison shopping, and I am so glad I did! For the same money, you can get a Teutonia stroller which comes with a 3 year guarantee, and also has the option of a bassinet (which for me was a problem with the maxi cosi as small babies should not be in a car seat for more then 3 hours at a time). For the money, there are much better quality options out there (yu just won’t find them at babies r us).

  95. Mom of Two on September 15th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller… i have done research while i was pregnant i am a stroller fanatic i love a good stroller that can take on anything… saw this stroller online then i went to see it in person i have a 3 year old and a newborn i use it on both of them they love it… bottom line this stroller is great u can have the baby look at you or face her/him the other way… i would recommend it !!!!

  96. Peyton's Parents on September 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Great stroller! It pushes wonderfully and turns so easily…great when trying to turn tight corners when shopping! It is not too big and the wheels are so smooth. I get so many compliments on it and everytime I see a Bugaboo I think I spent half the amount and it is so much better! BUY IT!!

  97. sassymom on September 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    we bought the foray maxi cosi because it was sleek, trendy and the seat can be adjusted to face front or back.Everything went great except for the bag under the seat. when we put stuff in it,it pushes on the two front wheels making it so hard to maneuver.also, i think this product is ok, if u have a toddler who can stand and wait for you while you assemble the seat to its frame every time you use it.if you have an infant, you have to always have someone w/ u to help you put it together, while the other holds the baby.same thing when you disassemble.

  98. LL on October 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have not used the seat for a bigger baby yet, but I use it with the car seat. The ride is smooth, love the back wheels, easy to handle. But now I wish I have bought a stroller with the bassinet since it is better for a baby to lay flat rather than be in a car seat in the car and out of it.
    Also, I wish the car seat could go both ways as well.

  99. Shannon -- young mom on the go on October 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller intrigued us from the start. We liked that the carseat worked with the base for infants and the larger child seat for toddlers. One must practice opening and closing the stroller base several times before jetting off to the mall. If not, you risk looking silly struggling with your new toy in the parking lot.

  100. consumer review junkie on October 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My husband and I did a lot of research prior to making this purchase. I love the looks of this stroller and do get lots of compliments. We purchased both the stroller and car seat. Overall the stroller has a nice smooth ride once you set it up. It takes some getting used to when unfolding and folding back up and is rather large in the trunk of a small sedan. The storage basket on the bottom is very small and doesn’t hold much and if you put something too heavy in it it rubs along the front tires and you can get quite annoyed. My only other con is that the sun shade on the car seat does not stay up nor provide very much shade, in fact the shade is rather useless. It did come with a one year warranty and my husband has offered to take it back but I love more than hate. It such a smooth ride, it’s sleek and stylish and very sturdy I love the fabric it’s easy to clean and love the adjustable handle, makes it easy and fun for big brother to push too.

  101. Nya's Mommy on October 20th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I wanted a Bugaboo and settled for the Foray because it’s at a much better price point. We do get many compliments on how the stroller looks (we purchased 6 months ago) however I do have some complaints and I will not be using this stroller for a second child.First: the ONLY adaptable car seat is the Maxi Cosi- and I couldn’t hate the thing more. It’s ridiculously hard to snap into place and the canopy for “blocking” the sun is a joke. It doesn’t even remotely stay put. It’s quite flimsy. It’s also quite uncomfortable and noticeably so. My daughter would protest when put in the seat- Every time. This stroller should be offered with a bassinet. (We now have a Chicco key fit carseat that we use because it snaps in and out of the car with ease and we just use the stroller with the toddler seat…so the Cosi seat we bought is useless to me. [$] wasted.) Compared to the Bugaboo: The stroller chasis of the two are similar. It’s a 4 step process to break this stroller down, but once you figure it out- it’s easy. It’s a pain in the tail that the stroller (like the bugaboo) does not fold up with the toddler seat in place. Picture this: 6 month old in her carseat in the car while I set up the stroller chasis, then struggle to attach the separate toddler seat (it’s not a fluid perfect system for locking into place-it’s need wriggling), then go back to car and unbuckle daughter, to transfer her into toddler seat where she again gets buckled for our “quick” errand. Not real quick or convenient (but the bugaboo has the same setup). Positives: This stroller DOES have a small storage basket underneath that I’ve never had “tire rubbing” trouble with (bugaboo has no basket) and the Foray has a cup holder (bugaboo has to be bought separate.)I heard someone say that comparing the Foray to a Bugaboo is like comparing a Kia to a BMW. Not in the same class. It’s true. The Foray handle is flimsy and feels hollow and cheap. The foray looks good but if you want a bugaboo- just bust for it. You won’t be fully happy with this stroller. Besides, you pay [$]That’s what I call GREAT resale value!Next baby will NOT be riding in my foray. A new stroller will be bought…can you guess what kind?! :O)

  102. NANI on October 25th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Where to start? If you are here trying to compare if you should just go for the most affordable version of a bugaboo wannabe? There’s no comparing thats exactly what it is! a WANNABE just turn around and go with the original! I bought this stroller 2 months ago with the matching car seat (awful but thats another topic) first of all its way too heavy, you could definitely not carry this around anywhere, its HUGE and BULKY this basically takes up all my space in my trunk,its difficult to assemble and its a hassle to open up! I would give this stroller away in a heartbeat!

  103. Shane's Mommy on October 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We just got this stroller and It was the one I wanted @ first sight!
    I love the smooth ride and the way it looks! it’s not one of those bulky strollers and I am a petite woman and I can fold it together and put it in my car without a problem!
    You MUST practice putting the car seat in and out of the stroller and folding it. It’s not as easy as it seems though.

  104. momma_pea on November 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    With a new baby on the way we spent several hours researching strollers that would be compatible with my husband who is an amputee. This stroller works out perfectly for us and anyone who has a taller husband; the handle gets longer and the back wheels are spaced so there’s no kicking the tires!
    If you’re looking for a cheaper version on the bugaboo you’re not going to be happy, buy the bugaboo. But if you’re looking for an all around good stroller this one is it for us!

  105. First time mom on November 5th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love the Maxi-Cosi Foray! I was apprehensive about buying it because of the ratings but wanted a trendier front/rear facing stroller. The stroller looks great, maneuvers well and was easy to assemble. It is easy to open/close once you get use to it. It takes more steps than the cheaper plastic ones but is in a totally different class of strollers. I was originally going to order online the Bumbleride Flyer but decided to go with the Foray because of the matching infant carseat. I love that this stroller comes with all the accessories: adjustable height handle, expandable canopy, large cup holder, zippable storage basket, and rainshield with own storage compartment.

  106. New Mommy Sofie on November 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Love this stoller. Very easy to use, works well with infact carseat as travel system, highly stylish…..similar to the Bugaboo system (which is way more expensive) and people often ask me if my stroller is bugaboo.. great for city-stylish moms… won’t feel like the usual dork of a mom with other mainstream strollers!

  107. Julie on November 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We orginally bought this stroller for our daughter who was in a spica cast. This stroller and the bugaboo were the only strollers we found that she could actually sit up in while being in the cast. We chose this one because of cost. Now that she is out of the cast, we still use this stroller all the time. We love going into restaurants and using this as a high chair as well. There has also been many nights where she has slept in this stroller. It’s just great! In the beginning it did take awhile to get use to closing and opening the stroller. Now it is simple!!!

  108. Sue on November 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I gave this stroller a test drive at BRU and fell in love with it immediately. Where to begin? The seat is so comfortable and since the whole seat pivots the back support is retained. It has a sleek simple design and that is really appealing. I love the expandable canopy and easy to use front bar. As far as the folding mechanism. I do not agree with other reviewers that say this is difficult, cumbersome, or too much work. Frankly I prefer this folding mechanism for two reasons. First, the weight of the stroller is cut in half when it is in two pieces. Lifting the whole stroller at once would be a bit much. Second, the stroller fits more compactly in my van with it in two pieces. I had the Graco Quattro Tour stroller and it was heavy and had a large footprint in my van. With the Foray I can lay it flat or stand up on side while placing the seat on top of or next to the base. This is great when I want to put it in the trunk of my sedan. The mechanism is so easy. Yes it has four steps but they are all quick and seamless. I can even do this while holding my child. The only drawback to this stroller is the front wheels. They could be a bit more substantial, like the back wheels. Overall, I give this stroller high marks and it is the only stroller I use.

  109. Divine Mama on November 11th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    It was between this and the Quinny and we’re sooo happy we chose the Foray. It’s awesome! Very easy to use, great mobility, attractive. I HIGHLY reccomend this product!

  110. lovin life in fl on November 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    First I would like to say that I purchased the orginal model that had a few issues.
    Examples:
    1) The seat “stuck” to the base making it DIFFICULT to remove.
    2) ANYTHING in the under carriage made pushing the stroller impossible.
    BUT!!
    When I called Maxi Cosi they addressed the issues immediatley and now my stroller is in perfect working order. I have seen other reviews badgering the strollers function but I love it. I wonder if those people ever call customer service with the issues they were facing?

    With that said this stroller is great for my family for the following reasons:
    1) Fold really is quite simple. With anything it takes some time to get used to.
    2) Except for traveling this is the only stroller I need.
    It is good for…
    Running (3 x’s a week)
    Mall trips
    Family outings
    3) My baby is comfortable facing me or the world.
    4) Removable seat allows my Beetle to accomodate the stroller. Thats right I drive a Beetle and this stroller fits in it just fine. It also fits great in our Prius.
    5) Undercarriage can fit alot and the front zipper is awesome.
    6) The rain cover is easy on and off.
    7) SMOOTHEST RIDE

    Obviously this stroller is just what our family needed and the price is less than we originally budgeted to pay for an all around stroller.

  111. new-baby-atl on November 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller lacks in quality and performance. It is flimsy, the tires continously get deflated, and it is extremely difficult to attach/ remove the seat base and car seat carrier. I would stay far away from it.

  112. Austin's Mommy on November 16th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I LOVE this stroller! It is not only stylish, but the ride is so smooth, it’s really easy to maneuver (even with one hand), lightweight, and it’s so simple to fold and unfold!! I also love that I can attach my Maxi Cosi Mico car seat to make an all around travel system. My son is 1 month old and he loves to be strolled around in the Foray. We go on walks through the neighborhood and he has never cried while in this stroller or in his car seat for that matter (which attaches to the stroller until he’s big enough to use the included seat).

    I’m only 4’10 and not very strong but I can lift the stroller base out of the trunk and set it up in less than 2 minutes with no problems. I also love how the handle has a height adjustment so it works for me and my 6 foot husband! Being only 4’10, I had trouble with all those popular travel systems. They were so bulky and the car seat sat so high that I couldn’t see over it. This system is perfect for shorter moms or moms who don’t want a bulky travel system. The car seat attaches so easily and it feels really sturdy but lightweight at the same time.

    I can’t say enough about this stroller and highly suggest the Mico car seat that attaches if you need an infant travel system. Maxi Cosi is a great brand and I’m so glad they see it in the US now. Those people in Europe apparently know what they’re doing! 🙂

  113. Julia on November 16th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I really liked this stroller from the beginning it’s really easy to use it, and the most important thing its really light.
    Very easy folds, fits perfect in my Toyota Camry.
    And in my trunk I still have room to fit my shopping bags so I would recommend this stroller to my friend defiantly.

  114. FunMom on November 18th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is fantastic! Like other new moms, I spent hours online reading consumer reports and days ‘test driving’ all the different strollers. I knew pulling the enormous travel system in and out of the car was not an option for me (I mean really, as a new mom, who can spare the energy?). As a baby shower gift we received the MacLaren Quest Sport (yes the light green/charcoal colored one that everybody has!) only to return it: it didn’t fully recline, wasn’t appropriate for an infant (needed another stroller), and the basket was too small and flimsy. The Foray is the best: it’s stylish, lightweight, washable, roomy, when combined with the Mico (infant car seat) has all the commodities of a travel system without the bulk (why carry the full size stroller if you only use the infant seat?? Doesn’t make sense). As others have mentioned, with the Foray you can use the frame with the infant car seat and when your baby outgrows you can move on to the other seat. The price is more than the traditional travel systems but well worth it. The frame is durable, maneuverability is exceptional (which is important in case you have to carry baby and steer in/out of doors), big rear tires, and the extras (rain shield, etc) are great. I’ve had mine for months and get tons of compliments, most important though, my baby loooves it!! PS. The neutral colors make it perfect for our son but hopefully when he’s done with it, it’ll be perfect for a daughter!!

  115. snoopy on November 22nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    It’s very comfortable when going for walk or shopping places. The only inconvenience is this stroller doesn’t have space to set cellphone or keys by the handle.

  116. S.Roberts on December 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We recieved this item as a babyshower gift from my grandma, and we really liked it….at first. At a closer glance, the basket is way too small and you don’t have the option of buying a bigger one. For a mom on the go, I DO NOT recommend this stroller. Oh, but they do have this “hook” device that they sell at the store but I’m affraid that if I put too much on that it might pull my new baby down! In a nut shell…. go with the $60 frame for now, and then up grade once the baby gets older. This one’s not worth it!

  117. MIOLEV on December 4th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Ok this is my 3rd time putting an review on here but i just cant help it i keep falling in love with the stroller. Me and my husband got it in february 2008. And had no problems at all, but about a month ago the storage bag underneath the stroller started pushing on the front wheels so it was impossible to push the stroller. […] i simply called Max-Cosi and explained the problem. Well i was simply thinking they were gonna send me a new bag to replace the old one well they did better they replaced the whole stroller. I got a brand new stroller and it only took one week. They had fed ex pick it up and i got a new one in a week. I didnt have to pay anything at all. Their customer service was amazing! And now we are enjoying our stroller like we did before. I would recommend this to every mother out there!

  118. Tasha on December 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    It is a great stroller,it is easy to control with one hand, it keeps baby warm in the winter and cool in the summer. I have to problems with it the bag underneath string fell apart and It is had to get stroller in trunk of car you have to take the wheeels off to get it to fit other than that its great.

    This carriage is not worth the money.Its very hard to maneuver.If you put anything underneath the carriage it wont ride properly. the car seat is very hard to get out of the base and the car.in short not worth it.

  120. Ava's Mommy on December 16th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    WE had a Graco before and this one really stands out. Once you get passed the setup.. it’s a really nice stroller. The only problem I have is going through narrow aisles, the back wheels stick out too much. Other than that.. it’s a smooth ride and very maneuverable.

  121. 1stTimeMommy on December 17th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! Once you get the hang of it, this stroller is a breeze to use. I have the infant car seat as well and my son looooooves it. Its nice to not have a bulky stroller when I go shopping or am just walking around. It’s very lightweight yet feels very sturdy. It took me like a week to get used to doing the 2 steps to take it apart and putting it together, but once you got it its suuuuper easy.

  122. Janet on December 30th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We just had our first child and purchased the Foray a couple months prior to his arrival. We absolutely fell in love with it. We were planning on going for the Bugaboo or Orbit, but when we saw the Quinny and Maxi Cosi Foray we realized that the Foray was everything we wanted at a much more affordable price. The base folds and opens up in a sinch–like butter. It is also ultra-maneuverable. I haven’t found anything wrong with it at this point and see it as an excellent alternative to the higher priced strollers. We also just found out that you can buy the Quinny Bassinet addition for the base. So, if you want the Bassinet look/feel, you can have that too. This stroller is an all around winner…

  123. Angie on January 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this one, as a Picky mom of two, I tryed a few other strollers (4 different), with my first baby now a toddler, I was ok with most of them, but then I saw this one in the store and wanted to try it, first for the looks, even my daughter loved it right away… she jumped on it and didn’t want to get off 🙂 So my husband got it for her and she has been used it for more than 8 months now, I will sell the other strollers and get another one for my second baby wich is 6 months old and fits (and sleeps) really good on it. Yeah is kinda hard to take apart but once you get it, you love it… I can hardly see myself trying something else… I don’t care too much about the small basquet, is big enough, to me, the smaller the better, if something is too big that I can’t put it in the basquet, then it doesnt belong on it. That simple… I recomend it a 100%.

  124. Hailey's Mom on January 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I would recommend to stroller to any new Mom, its great and easily accessible.

  125. Erica on January 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I got this stroller after a Phil and Ted’s, and I loved how streamlined it was. Despite being an inch or so wider, it is easier to maneuver by far.

    I love the spacious seat. My daughter was already 20 months when we got the stroller. I couldn’t resist after we put her in it in the store and tried it out. She LOVES this stroller. It is the first one that she will stay in for AS LONG AS WE ASK (she’s almost 3 now, and still has plenty of room…but we have a 3 month old who could inherit it when she’s too big).
    I love the canopy and included rain cover. The canopy is very large and moves easily. The rain cover zips on quickly and easily.
    I love the way it handles. Very, very nice. You never need two hands to push this stroller.
    I really appreciate (and I think my daughter does too) how high up the seat is.
    I love the hard footrest and the bumper bar…we put a child’s velcro snack and drink holder on it.
    The cup holder is functional, unlike some high end stroller models.

    Now the not so great:
    After 5 months or so, I realized that all the mechanisms to fold it were getting more and more difficult. They just have to be perfectly wiggled to work. I found myself getting very frustrated numerous times in the wind or rain or snow, trying to close my stroller, because parts had to be just so. Also, the cup holder must be in the right position, and the basket will interfere if you don’t do it just right. That can result in the automatic latch not latching right.
    The separate seat doesn’t really bother me. Nor does it take up SO much space in my trunk (Nissan Altima). It is the majority, sure, but we cram all kinds of other things in there with it. Again, just a little manipulating of how to place it.
    The fold itself, when it works just right without any repeats, is fine and not hard at all.
    The stroller is heavy but since I don’t lift both pieces at once, it doesn’t bother me.
    After a nearly a year, I still love using it but am getting sick of dealing with opening, closing and storing it.
    Also wish it was compatible with more infant car seats.

  126. TVC on January 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Love this Stroller. Fell in love from the moment we saw it. We were scared that it would be complicated to use since it is so different then anything else out there…..COMPLETELY the opposite. Super easy to use, open and close. Handle adjusts to different heights which is awesome. Looks nice and rides smoothly. lightweight and so easy to stow away. The storage looks small but suprisingly enough it fits soo much in it. perfect for the mall. The car seat that you can but for it is just as god. TOTALLY WORTH THE MONEY!!!!

  127. Army Wife on January 22nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The stroller is awesome and easy to manuever, you can use one hand to get around in it. I would recommend this stroller to anyone.

  128. misskrissy007 on January 23rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Very easy to use. When my son was an infant, I loved how easy it was to just snap the infant carrier to the base. I’m taller so I also appreciate being able to heighten the handles. The rain/wind shields are easy to use and effective. On a raw, bitter day, it’s nice to be able to have his seat facing me. Its a bit on the large side but that just means its sturdier for my little guy.

  129. D first time mom on February 1st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    After reading so many comments some of them good some bad I decided to go and buy the stroller and try it myself.My son is 6 months old and we have 3 strollers home three different and I couldn’t believed when I put my son to the stroller he loved it and after few min he was already sleeping in it:) As a first time mom I love the stroller so much it looks great its very easy to set up( I did it myself )and is so light so we really love everything about it I would tell all my friends to buy it not only the price is good but everything about it:)

  130. new parents on February 6th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We love the smooth ride the foray gives our newborn. We had to take her to downtown Boston before she was 2 weeks old. If you have ever been here, you know how bumpy the sidewalks are, cobblestone and bricks, but she wasn’t stirred at all! It is a little awkward to set up. I need some more practice putting the infant seat in and taking it off, but my husband has it down as he has done it more often than me. It fits easily in our trunks and I have a small car. We are happy with our purchase.

  131. Love It on February 10th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Sometimes, I get really confused by the people that write reviews, or maybe i’m just not clear on peoples expectations. No, this stroller doesnt magically collapse and right itself on it’s own, there are a couple steps to it. No, you cant fit a miniature horse in the basket. No, it will not entertain your child while you do something else, you may need to bring some toys. Finally, No-it doesnt fold into the size and weight of a hand mirror, so plan accordingly in your trunk.

    If any of the above are requirements of yours when purchasing a stroller, this one may not be for you. if you want a reliable, attractive, comfortable and easy to use stroller, I would highly recommend the Maxi Cosi to you.

  132. Dedicated mom and dad on February 17th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We bought our stroller January 2008 and hadn’t seen any body using one anywhere. It’s look and light weight as well as how easy it was to fold really impressed us. We take the baby to the supermarked with us and we fit more than 40 pounds of groceries in the pouch. People kept asking me where I got the stroller from and if it is confortable, we recomended it to everyone.

    It is a great stroller.

    Our son is one year old now and we’re sticking with Maxi-cosi.

  133. Chelsea Rose on February 23rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have this whole system, including the infant car seat and car seat base. I drive a TWO DOOR CAR and the stroller folds up and fits in the hatch, with room to spare. When I go out, I don’t feel inconvenienced by having to set everything up. It takes two seconds to unfold the stroller, and just another two seconds to snap the car seat in. It’s very small, light weight, and agile. I TOOK IT TO NYC (including on the trains and subways!) TO VISIT MY SISTER!, that’s how great this thing is! The understorage fits more than you’d think. Overall, it’s very sturdy, easy to use, looks great — I love it! It was worth the money. You can find cheaper ones, but you always get what you pay for!

  134. Dasha on February 24th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love it!!!! Handles very well,great for toddler and baby,durable.does not get any better.One thing,color could be better

  135. jessi.marina on February 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    My hubby and I bought this stroller for our first child and I wanted something to walk my baby in. I love how the shocks make it a smooth ride. I also got the carrier and the only complaint I have with it is the shield doesn’t stay up, but other than that I’ve enjoyed using this stroller for shopping as well as long walks.

  136. Mom on the Go on March 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Looked at this one due to I did not want to end up buying 2-3 different strollers. This one covered the use of the snap and go, a travel system and a Jeep like stroller. I have had it for a year now and no regrets. My husband loves it do to it is easy to use. Down side of it is the amount of space it takes up in the trunk.

  137. Nomi's Momma on March 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is awesome! We have been using this stroller (and the Maxi Cosi car seat) since the day my daughter was brought home from the hospital 7 months ago. It is extremely durable and my daughter loves it. The only con is that the under-basket was too small and we ended up taking it off because it would sometimes interfere with the wheels…but we have hardly missed it. The handle height adjusts so that my 6′ 2″ husband can easily push it, and then my 7 year old sister can lower it to her height as well. One of the many reasons we love the stroller, is that it easily goes from the mall to off the beaten path….I highly recommend it!

  138. NYC chic on March 4th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Received this as a gift. What a Cheap horrible mess! I returned it and got the Bugaboo Cameleon. The thing is that it looks “similar” to a bugaboo but its a “wolf in sheep’s clothing” cause it doesn’t ride like one. I was ashamed of my imitation bugaboo.

  139. flsma on March 10th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Such a good Stroller. For the review that puts this stoller down coparing it to bigaboo, no problem!?!? If you want to spend a weeks paycheck on a stroller go buy a Bugaboo. This is the best alternative! Price is still reasonable and this feels, looks and works just as good. We were given a bugaboo and used it for a few days but we hated the fact that we owned something such an expensive stroller. We returned the bugaboo and bought this one and could be happier. Rides awesome and looks great. We also use it with the maxi cosi car seat and attaching it is a breeze!!! We compare the in and out of the car with a friend that owns one of those travel system storllers and this stows away so quick and does not take much room in the back of the car. The seat is comes with is great becaue it allows for longer use with your todler.
    EVERYWHERE we go we get compliments on this stroller.
    The storage in the bottom seems small but we were surprised that after a day of shopping at the mall we were not holding any bags, they were all in the storage bag of the stroller.
    I would recomend this to anyone.!!!!

  140. TEAMPINK on March 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have had a few strollers with my 2 girls (4yrs & 23 mos). I went looking for a new stroller recently for my youngest. After looking at a few other strollers, I then sat Ava in the Maxi Cosi Foray stroller and funny to say but she LOVED it and didn’t want to get out. So we bought it. This Maxi Cosi stroller is so versatile. The seat can face you or face out. It has 3 reclining positions. It glides so smoothly. My daughter falls asleep everytime she is in it for more than 20 min. WE simply LOVE IT and will never get nor need another stroller. This is the absolute BEST and worth the money!!!!

  141. ilovegabrielle on March 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Pros: Super comfy, smooth ride, cool styling, adjustable handle
    Cons: hard to collapse, even harder to collapse with the “big kid” seat because you have to take it apart into 2 pieces, the handle bar gets dirty and knicked up when collapsing it-it’s great if you keep it in the garage and don’t have to travel with it.

  142. baseball mom on March 28th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller because it had all of the features that I was looking for and I LOVED the way it looked. For the first couple of months I was pleased with it, then all of the plastic buttons started getting stuck. It is now nearly impossible to unfold or adjust without a LOT of hassle. And, eventhough it is pretty easy to fold up it is a major pain to unfold – impossible to do while holding my six month old. It is awkward to pick up once folded and put it into my murano – the handle flops open when its moved. The little front wheels get stuck on even small changes in the terrain too. Overall – not worth the money. I’m buying a BOB to replace it.

  143. EBKmommy on April 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Unique product. Didn’t find another one on the market like it–except the really expensive Bugaboos and Quinnys (the sister company to Maxi-Cosi). Love that you don’t drag around the infant seat and “big kid” attachment, too. Folds and unfolds easily (with some practice). Very light-weight (I have no problems carrying it and am petite). Attractive and plain, no silly colors and patterns. Both infant seat and chassis fit easily into the base contraption.
    The chassis is really big! I have a petite daughter (20th percentile) and she is just lost in it! She’s almost too small for it, even though she’s 8 months old. On the up-side, she seems pretty comfortable and I anticipate being able to use the stroller for a long time! Would be good for a larger baby. The stroller base and chassis do take up the entire trunk in my 2003 VW Jetta, almost NO room for anything else at all. However, it is great to save space while you can use the infant seat attachment.
    Don’t buy this seat if you’re looking for a snack tray (doesn’t have one).
    The buckles are easy to use, but get twisted very easily. The sunshade is on the small side and doesn’t really block out sun, rain, wind very easily. Haven’t used the rain cover yet, so I can’t comment on that…
    Overall, have gotten a lot of compliments on the stroller and would probably buy again (if I could be convinced to buy the Maxi-Cosi Mico infant seat again…)

  144. suburban mom -jogger,walker,mall shopper on April 8th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    GOOD NOT GREAT,BUT DOES THE JOB AS GOOD AS A MORE PRICIER BRANDS AND IVE TRIED ABOUT 5 FIVE BRANDS FROM $200-700 HUNDRED,AND THIS ONE CAN KEEP UP!
    HAD IT FOR 6 MONTHS AND I PUT IT TO WORK,NOT BAD.

  145. touringcharleston on April 8th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We love this stroller. It is a cinch to get in and out of my SUV and to lock my daughters car seat in. Great looking and very easy to maneuver. I haven’t used it with the toddler seat but with the infant seat I couldn’t be more pleased.

  146. German Mama on April 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is the best stroller you will find for your money!! we tried to go a little cheaper and decided (after reading almost all the reviews we could find) to ordered the Kolcraft Contours 4-Wheeler… What a mistake! This stroller is to heavy, to big when folded and it is really poor quality. Needless to say, we returned it and went to our local BabiesRus store and tried this stroller out.. We instantly fell in love with it.. The quality difference is amazing.. it is lightweight, has great features, very roomy and stylish.. And the best thing: it has a weight limit for your child of 50lbs!! the only other strollers with such a high weight limit sell for about twice the amount of the Foray..This stroller is worth every penny.. I just wish we would have gotten it earlier, since my son is already 14 months old. So far we had the FisherPrice Infant to Toddler Stroller, which we liked, but it just had a weight limit of 25lbs and the quality was poor compared to the MaxiCosi Foray. Buy it, you will not regret it.

  147. Emily on April 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I received this product as a gift at a baby shower. It is very well built. Extremely smooth ride and easy to maneuver. The matching car seat snaps in easily. It takes a little practice to break it down, but it’s not too hard.

    My main problem with this stroller is that it is so bulky. And I’ve only carried it around with the infant seat, so with the toddler seat too I know it would be annoying. However, I knew this before I purchased it so I didn’t rate it lower. It’s just something I should have thought about.

    My best advice is to buy a car seat and snap-n-go frame before the baby is born and decide on long term stroller later.

    This stroller is good quality and I’ve had no problems, but I’m getting a smaller one that is all one piece for convenience.

  148. 1st time mom on April 25th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I absolutely love this stroller..It is very light, compact so it fits in any trunk..I see that some ppl complained about setting it up but it has numbers on the stroller that you follow for a quick and easy set up…the only thing i could complain about is the matching car seat. The top shade of the car seat always falls down and doesnt block the sun very well..also it doesnt hav the gaps at the bottom of the car seat (that you could put on top of a grocery car) so i have to put my baby in the actual cart which means i dont hav a lot of room for groceries..otherwise the stroller is a great buy!

  149. carla on April 28th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I get so many compliments from strangers on this stroller..I love the design aspect and the comfort. The air wheels makes it a smooth ride.

  150. B's Mom on May 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We love this stroller. It’s easy to use and has a great break on it. It’s lightweight and turns on a dime.

  151. baby girl mom on May 12th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    things that are great about it

  152. A Mom on May 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I initially loved my Foray because I could rotate the seat forward/rear facing. It was difficult at first to get the seat off the base but I soon got this down. I used it primarily rear facing so I could see my baby. She loved it and would sit up hanging onto the bar to look around. She was content to see me while we strolled in the parks and malls. I changed it to forward facing on one occasion and it jammed. […]

  153. First Time Mommy on May 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stroller! It is so easy to use w/ the infant seat and it’s not bulky at all, easy to have in the trunk and doesn’t take up very much space. I get compliments on this everywhere I go.

  154. Ami NYC mom on May 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. It is easy to push and my baby looks so adorable and comfortable on it BUT it is sooo heavy. Being a NYC mom and not having a car I use public transportation and there is no way I can ever get on the train or bus with this stroller! First of all it closes in 2 pieces and second even if I wanted to leave it intact and carry up subway stairs I physically cannot. I will have to actually buy a smaller stroller and spend more money instead of initially buying a lighter stroller.

  155. Working mom in NYC on May 24th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I was very happy when I found this stroller. Exactly what I wanted. Stylish, simple, big wheels. It was very easy to assemble. I used it with the Mico car seat until my daughter was 6 months. It was really easy to detach the seat and carry her up to the 4th floor. I do the same thing with the stroller seat when she falls asleep during the walk.The canopy is nice big.I still like the stroller, looks great, easy to use and very comfortable. BUT.This is my second stroller, and this is going back also. The parts at the back wheels are scratching together, so the wheels got stuck when they got wet. I have the same problem with the second model, and also the basket looses its shape, blocks the front wheels, and it makes the steering impossible. I’m really sorry, that its made so cheap, because I really like everything else on it!The Maxi-Cosi customer service was first class, they sent […]the next day i called them, to pick up the stroller and in a week I had a new model, for absolutely free. Now I’m sending it back again, and pay the price difference to get a Quinny, although I would rather have a better made Foray.

  156. First time mommy on May 25th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    It folds up great. I love the front or rear facing feature.

  157. Happy mom on June 1st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Love it. Good price for this stylish and simple stroller. Great features. It’s very easy to use, push and maneuver. Very smooth ride. It’s lightweight and has a great break on it, height adjustable handle. Having big weels not bulky at all, fits great in a trunk and still have room for groceries(Toyota Camry).
    Love that don’t have to carry stroller seat while using inf. car seat, makes is so much easier.
    8 weeks in use.

  158. Sunny on June 4th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stroller. It is durable- great to take long walks with. My husband takes our baby and goes jogging for an hour everyday. It has enough room for stuff in the basket. I would recommend to buy the diaper bag that goes with it so you can hang it on the front handles. This is not a light weight umbrrella stroller. The frame is pretty heavy, you can’t open and close it with one hand. Also, it doesn’t really fold very small, I need almost my entire trunk to store it and I drive a sedan. We have used it with the maxi-cosi car seat till now that my son is 10 months old however we are moving to the stroller seat now. I like that it reclines well and it has a good shade. Overall, well worth the price I was considering the Bugaboo Frog, but am glad I got this instead.

  159. new mom on June 10th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. My son is 5 months old and I use it with the car sit. It’s very easy to fold and to “drive”. I would buy this stroller again.

  160. sophi's mom on June 11th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have used it for 8 months. love the style and is VERY easy and light to maneouver. The bad thing is that is not very strong. It wobbles very much, trust me.

  161. Timbysmommy on June 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. It’s a little pricey but if you only plan on having one child it’s perfect. It’s inflatable back wheels make it VERY smooth to manuever. I can hold my son and push it with one hand with no effort. I love that it will face me so I know what he’s doing. For multiple children I’d recommend the Kolcraft Contours double stroller. It’s alot like this one except it’s alot cheaper and it’s perfect for two kids.

  162. Mom on the Go on June 22nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We got this stroller primarily because we wanted a stroller that was easy to use with large tires to be able to take it onto baseball and football fields-for our oldest’s games. One thing I would caution people to consider before buying the stroller is the cost of replacement tires (almost 70 dollars). We got a small hole in one tire from a very small piece of glass. The tires cannot be repaired. You can only get a tire from the manufacturer-which includes the tire and tire rim. Had we known this, we may have made a different choice. In fact, we decided to replace the stroller because of this.The breakdown of the stroller was a bit challenging-as it actually breaks down into two parts. This presented a bit of a challenge in airports, etc. It was also hard for me to unclip the seat. My husband could do it-I think because he’s taller and stronger. I fought with it a bit on at least several occasions to get it detached.While I liked the way it worked when it was together and the step by step guide on the stroller to break it down, I would not recommend the stroller for the above-mentioned reasons.

  163. Charlotte on July 4th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I purchased the Maxi-Cosi infant car seat because I thought is was the safest, most attractive, and even affordable one. I began using it with a Snap & Go stroller base; it was a lot lighter than a full travel system, but it was a pain to use and not very safe. I loved the Quinny Buzz strollers since my sister owned one, but for hundreds more, you actually get less.

    The Quinny Buzz and Maxi-Cosi Foray look very simular;
    same handle,
    same expensive look,
    same tires,
    they both have a reversible seat,
    they both recline horizontally so baby or toddler can sleep..

    BUT the Foray has a lot better features:
    it’s MUCH cheaper;
    it comes with a cup holder, whereas quinny makes you buy one separately;
    the Buzz has exposed brake wires, and they’re harder to use- the Foray has a very simple button you step on once to brake, and again to release.

    If you’re a first time parent like myself, you’re probably thinking storage is not as important as looks.. wrong!! you NEED a place to put your diaper bag and purse, since the two go with you everywhere.. the Buzz has NO storage room, but the Foray can fit both my huge purse and diaper bag.. you can even reach them from both the front and the back of the stroller. Seriously, great storage space is hard to find on these nicer strollers since a basket isn’t exactly sleek, but Maxi-Cosi has done a great job.

    The Foray has a deeper, taller, and wider seat than the Buzz, yet it does not take up any more space than the Buzz (many people have complained about their child outgrowing the Buzz too early;)

    That memory foam seat on the Buzz makes your baby sweat, whereas the Foray uses a much cooler fabric that is also scotchgard.

    Both the Buzz and the Foray fold to about the same size and weight. There are actually a few people that will call this stroller bulky, but all full stollers are! It doesn’t matter how much money you are willing to spend; full strollers are simply not going to fold into little cubes for you to toss into your trunk. “Bulky” is the Graco Travel System.

    You buy this stroller and the Maxi-Cosi car seat, and you’re all set. I got a Maclaren Volo stroller at my baby shower, and it is amazing, but before my son is a year old, i can’t imagine him using it. Your baby WILL sleep in the stroller, and if it does not recline back far enough, your child will slump over, which could potentially curve their spine over time. I looked for an umbrella stroller that would recline, but none of them reclined far enough back to make a difference. If your baby is not happy, than no one is happy, which is why it’s important have a comfortable stroller that baby can sleep in -and this one is PERFECT! I wouldn’t change a thing about it.

  164. Dee - Mom of 3 boys on July 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I really wanted the Uppa Baby until I came across this stroller. I immediately fell in love with the product and even more the price. I’ve always said that you get what you pay for and i still stand by that. This stroller costs more than a Graco or Evenflo travel system but you do not get the features or comfort from those like you get with the Foray. The material is great quality, it’s EXTREMELY easy to set up. I thought i was going to have a thick manual to read but really it was just a few pages. It has numbers 1-4 to fold up/set up. The sun shade is very big and the rain shade is very easy to attach. I seriously have no complaints about this stroller. In my opinion, it is comparable to the Quinny, Frog & Uppa just much cheaper!

    I love this stroller.
    Have used it almost everyday for 1.5 years.
    My husband and i (more my husband) became fanatical about finding the perfect stroller for our daughter, something like the Mutsy but that didn’t weigh as much.
    We wanted to take it everywhere- the beach, trail hiking, and be able to go throw the grass at parks and what not. This stroller does.
    It washes out great.
    The rain cover is perfect- easy to put on and off.
    THE BRAKES ARE AWESOME one slight step and your done, no kicking-not what you want if you wear flip flops.
    The handle adjusts easily for my husband 6’3″ to my oldest daughter who’s 8yr.
    The only problem we have had with it is 1. the basket gets in the way of the wheel and 2. you have to master a technique for loading it onto a tram (at theme parks).
    when this one gives out we will definitely get another.
    And as often as we are out and about i have never seen anyone have one.
    People are always ask us about it.

  166. Mom-to-Be Shopping for Stroller on July 24th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I’ve been looking for just the right stroller and when I saw this one online, I thought it was perfect – very stylish! However, I was advised by a co-worker to go to the store and ‘test drive’ strollers before buying online. I’m so glad I did! This stroller looks nice, but it is EXTREMELY difficult to get the stroller seat off. I couldn’t even do it by myself; my husband had to help and after 5 min of struggling, we both finally got it off. Also, when the car seat is in the frame, there’s only the sunshade from the car seat. There’s not another one that will come down from the frame in order to completely shade your baby. It’s great that is comes with the rain/wind protector, but it only works on the stroller seat, not the car seat too. My husband also thought the frame felt a little weak and unstable. Buyer beware, don’t be fooled the stylish looks!

    We got the Foray to accompany our Mico car seat. I love how easy this stroller is to fold up and throw in the trunk, but it is a little bulky–not sure how it compares to other strollers in this respect, but no big deal. We also like the overall simplicity of the whole system, which is why we selected it; only one car seat with a stroller frame for now, and then we’ll merely have to buy the toddler car seat later.But here’s our problem: after a few months of light use, my wife and I decided to try jogging with the stroller (should work great), and we realized that one of the front wheel locks kept slipping and causing the stroller to skid and shake.

    I have the stroller as well as the infant car seat. Both are great. People complain that the stroller itself is 2 pieces and you have to take the extra 30s to put it together bc it cant be stored in one piece… Well worth it. I was hesitant to buy bc people complained about buttons being sticky and having to open and close JUST SO. Read the directions. Play with it a few times… I dont think there are any strollers that JUST OPEN. As for one hand.. Why do you need to open a stroller with one hand?? You cant do to many things in life with one hand… Its a great stroller. A great buy. Well worth it.

    Set up was EASY! All you have to do is pop the tires on!

    It WAS a bit tricky to open and collapse the stroller frame the first few times I used it…but now I LOVE this stroller. I wonder if those who’ve complained have given it a few tries before placing such negative comments??? It’s a different type of stroller, give it some time…it’s precisely those DIFFERENT features that I now love….how nice to be able to use the frame as a snap-n-go. and how nice to be able to face baby front or back…just gotta get used to the mechanics of having such NEW features. Comfy for baby, has all the features needed (basket is a nice size), and it looks really cool…I’m so glad that I didn’t shell out more money on a more expensive name-brand version of this.
