    All I can say is wow! This stroller is one of the best I’ve ever had. I bought it b/c it reclined and had a generous sun shade. It is the best; it works great on any terrain, and is very lightweight. It takes up almost no room in our SUV and it has a great basket. No need for a full size, this baby is all you will ever need. One “test drive” and you’ll be in love too!

  2. Jen W on June 5th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Believe it or not, I am the second Jennifer to write a rave review about this stroller! Originally I bought my daughter a cute little purple flowered umbrella stroller for $10. It worked fine except that there was no canopy to shield her from sun or rain. The other thing that I had not thought of is that it didn’t recline and she got very cranky when she could not lay down and nap. It also was not a smooth ride and almost impossible to push on gravel. So, I broke down and decided that an upgraded stroller was a necessity. At first I felt that I had to have pink or purple, a girly color, and I searched and searched to no avail. I wanted a lightweight stroller but it needed to recline for naps (look for descriptions that say “multi-position” rather than “2 reclines”). That was very difficult to find for under $100.00 and lightweight. Then I saw this and liked the design, it looked modern and not clunky or cheap. The recline is not flat but plenty far back for a very comfy nap. The sunshade is nice and big, it has a snack tray and cup holders and the basket is nice and roomy! The iPod dock thing is really cool, my daughter loves to bop her head along to music. It truly is lightweight and this is a SMOOTH ride, folks! I love this stroller, it is so well made and the design makes sense. The tray acutally rotates and lifts as well as comes totally off, so it isn’t in the way at all!! This is by far the best stroller I have ever seen or used and it is worth every penny. What is really funny is that the lime green color was the biggest turnoff for me and people comment on how cool it is all the time!! I got mine at meijer to avoid paying shipping and handling at Target or babies r us online. Get it, you will be impressed.

    I ordered this from another website and when my husband put it together, we were impressed with how smooth the ride was. Unfortunately, it is not a good choice for a newborn. Our 4-week old, 9-pound daughter was just too small for the space and the harness strap that goes between the legs is very thin and not adjustable. Otherwise, we would have kept it.

  4. Renee on June 7th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    We were looking for a lighweight, easy-to-get-around stoller for our three month old son. He isn’t big enough for the umbrella stollers so I found this one on the web. Not crazy about the colors, but it is exactly what we were looking for and for the price, you can’t beat it. The iPod dock isn’t what we were expecting, but it wasn’t what sold us on the stroller to begin with. I think when they made the iPod dock they weren’t taking into consideration the size of the smaller iPod Nano. The plug for the dock is on the top and the plug on the Nano is on the bottom so you have to turn it upside down in the station or it won’t stay. It’s very smooth, reclines back for naps,five point safety harness, and moves around so easily. The snack/cup holder is removeable. It sits kind of high on the stroller so he can’t see with it on, but he will grow into it. The only problem with this stroller is that the canopy could be bigger. Love this stroller!

  5. Mom of 3 boys on June 25th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    The Kolcraft Contours lite stroller is just ok for what my needs and wants are. What I do like about it is the different design of the frame. It just stands out in a crowd! The wheels are excellent driving, very smooth and turning radius is the best. The ipod holder is a nice idea, yet it needs some improvements. The mesh holder is very tight so pulling the ipod in and out is a task. The sound quality is mediocre, this also depends on how well your music was downloaded onto your ipod. The stroller does not fold as thin and compact as you would expect from a smaller sized stroller, it’s still a bit bulky. The storage basket is a good size and is accessible from the front or back. The parent does not get a tray (which I prefer), but a perfect sized single cupholder. The child gets a rather small snack tray/cupholder which sits too high. My son is a big 11month old and the tray is level with his face. The button to open and close the tray is very hard to push because it is a tiny red pin under the side of the arm bar. The material used on this stroller is pretty durable and water-repellent. The seat recline is infinite, almost flat recline, but the tab to recline it is cheap plastic. I do not like the safety belt, it’s tight trying to lock it close and when your baby is fussing around, that just doesn’t make it a simple task. The belt is also hard to push to unlock it. The belt is stitched into the cushion, so if your belt breaks (again because it is cheap plastic), you will have to replace the entire seat cushion.The handle bar height and distance for stride is perfect for me and my husband, yet we are both short at 5′ 5″. In my opinion, this stroller is overpriced at [$].I feel that overall this item is good for a back-up or secondary stroller, but for my everyday use, I am looking for a different one.

  6. annette on June 27th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I was suprised at all the rave reviews for this stroller. I purchased it online (if it had been available in the store to see first, I would have never bought it) and put it together. First thing I notice, which I am surpised no one else complained about, is it takes two hands to collapse-such a pain when you have a baby in one arm! Next, the child tray is so high, and the parent area could use a tray as well as the cup holder. I’m surprised for the price, that this wasn’t a little better. I found a great Jeep lightweight (not the umbrella one) at […] for [$] less than this one and seems very nice. I suppose the IPod deck would be beneficial to some, but not one of my priorities. Thanks!t

    GREAT STROLLER, SMOOTH RIDE. PARENT TRAY AND COMPACT FOLD WOULD MAKE THIS STROLLER PERFECT

  8. Pat on August 12th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I am very happy with this stroller, it reclines good, very good to go walking down the street. It glides easy also handle bar placed at a good height for my husband. Highly recommend. The on con is the try is a little high but other then that it is great. I tried to purchase here but was sold out and I got it at another store in Red and I love it.

  9. Nina on August 13th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Love this stroller. i have a four year old and an infant. i just had him at the end of june, use it for my 4 year old and for the infant… i like the idea of it being very very light, and this summer instead of puting the baby in his infant chair {to hot} i put him right in the stroller, it relines just enough for support…. i love the look! the basket is great… as for my 4 year old she loves it plenty enough space for her…im 5’9 so it is a little low when pushing it but i don;t mind it glides and does what its supposed to do… people should understand your paying 70 bucks for a stroller not 500. you get what you pay for… if you want a cadillac stroller spend more money… anyways this stroller rocks…. get more compliments on it….

  10. Sandra I on August 25th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    wondefull stroler, my kid and i love it. very lightweight

  11. Ashley's Mom on October 3rd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    We ordered this stroller after hours of internet research. We are first-time parents who were traveling to Europe and needed something compact yet durable. For the most part, I do enjoy this stroller. The handle is very soft and comfortable; the ride is smooth; the basket is ample; the color is eye-catching. However, the shade coverage is lacking; the release buttons for the tray are small, hard and painful; the recline is not complete. By far the IPOD speaker doc is the greatest feature of this stroller.

  12. Alina on October 22nd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I saw this stroller […] and was excited about getting a stroller for shopping because my 2 year old daughter is very naughty. Also we like to travel to go to soccer tornaments and some places are very sandy and grass can be pretty thick to stroll a stroller on. So after having it for only a month the wheels in the front were always turning to the sides. Never would let me go straight. I would either have to kick the wheels straight when I’m strolling or I would have to tilt it back on the back wheels. It was the worst stroller I had ever had. When I had to stroll it on the back wheels people would look at me weird and I would get so embarrassed. I don’t recommend it to anyone.

  13. Katie & Tikes on October 31st, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This stroller had everything(in concept) I was looking for in a light weight stroller for our 20lb toddler. I was raving about how cool it was and easy to maneuver. Unfortunately, On day 3 of our vacation the front wheel snapped off, splintered off. After having used it under normal conditions and using every ramp crossing, making sure to treat it gently, it was broken. This left us carrying our toddler (who hates to be carried) around the city for two more days of our vacation. Completely dissappointed with the real trial run. Embarrassing in the least. Done again, I would avoid this stroller, the plastic wheel assembly is not up to par(weak)YET!

    If you do get this stroller, check your front wheels often for signs of stress. You might not even see a breakdown coming.
    Other points to consider, buckle fasteners are tight and may pinch fingers. The arm bar/tray release pins are very small and tight to release.

    Pros- Recline is decent for napping, hood canopy offers decent shade, seat is comfy, lightweight, easy to steer on smooth surfaces, folds to stand(not most compact) and the ibaby dok is pretty universal- working with an iriver, sony stick, and ipod shuffle, safe level of volume for child.

  14. mommy girl on December 11th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Love this stroller.It’s light, very smooth, easy to strolle with one hand.It’s small but yet big enough, and the color (green) perfect. When my older doughter sneeks away with the baby in the stroller, I can recognize her by the color if she’s trying to hide from me. There’s not many strollers this color strolleing around so it makes it easy to find. The only downside to it is that it’s bulky when folded.

  15. mommy2twogirls on December 18th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    When we first got this stroller I loved it. It pushed like a dream. It was just great! After about 2 months the wheels started acting up. The front wheels bend forward when you push it. Its horrible. You have to tilt it backwards to push it. The seat just doesnt look comfy for a toddler. It leans back too much. And there is no padding. I am super disapointed. I really loved it at first but now…I dread using it.

  16. g locks on December 21st, 2007 at 12:00 am

    the stroller is very light, which is good. however the stiching from the canopy is coming apart and i only used it twice so far.

  17. krys on January 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We just got this stroller think it will be great. We put our 4 year old and ran her around the house and moved good and fast!! no problem with wheels locking or kicking the wheels. the hight is wonderful!!! I am 5’8″ and hubby is 6’2″ and neither one of us kicked the wheels. we didnt have to lean over to reach the handle bars either. great stroller for the price!!

  18. Matteo's Mom on January 31st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller a few months ago and it is great. Very durable and rides smoothly. Only problem if you are to tall my be to short for you. I am 5’7 and the stroller is just right for me. Also you need two hands to close it, but it does stand up once you close it.

  19. TD on February 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I originally loved this stroller….it looked great (I got the red) and seemed comfy but as others have mentioned, I’ve begun to have to have trouble with the front left wheel sticking and twisting. It’s getting quite annoying b/c I always have to stop and adjust it.

    Also, now that my daughter’s old enough to eat Cheerios, etc off the tray I’ve noticed that she has a hard time reaching the tray b/c the seat doesn’t allow her to sit completely straight…..she slumps in it a bit and the strap that allows the seat to recline or stay upright is a bit flimsy and hard to work. I do like how the basket can be used from either the front or the back.

    Overall I’m okay with it but hopefully my wheel doesn’t outright break off. Maybe my mechanically-inclined hubby can take a look at it.

  20. Kate coming soon! on February 15th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I just received this stroller in red from my baby shower. I have to say that for the price it is a good buy. It is beautiful! Sleek and modern looking. My favorite part is that it turns like a dream! Super easy to steer. Con- It is made cheaply. I fully anticipate the plastic wheels giving me problems (hence the 4 stars). Also, it does not fold very compactly. I will be using this as a secondary stroller for quick in and out of stores. I am purchasing a more sturdy stroller for park walks, etc… Overall, I am pleased with this gift and would recommend it for short uses. If you are looking for a main stroller that will last, unfortunately, you will need to spend more money.

  21. Amanda The New Young Mom on March 18th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I received this stroller as a back up to the Graco Metrolite and was 10x easier to assemble. The basket is great since you can put things in it from the front or the back and the basket is pretty long, I’ve stuffed my winter coat under there in the mall. The iPod dock it comes with is cute since I love music but the speaker is a little cheap and sometimes sounds muffled. The shoulder straps are a little wide for my 6 month old and she often bites on them because of how close to her face they come. I am a little nervous that the wheels are going to come off or crack because they aren’t rubber…straight plastic. Also the stroller is made for the “vertically challenged” so if you’re tall I don’t recommend this stroller for you. I don’t use the tray it comes with because I’m not sure if it’s just my stroller but boy it is such a hassle to get to open at times I miss my Graco cuz of the simplicity of opening the tray. It manuvers great in tight spots and in the doctors office where there isn’t much room for her old stroller. The box also said it reclines flat, but it doesn’t, not even half way there which attracted me to it in the first place. All and all it isn’t a bad stroller just wouldn’t rely on it as my main one to go everywhere with, which is why I bought a Maclaren in addition to this.

  22. Kristy the workaholic on April 21st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I Use the stroller for everything from walks to shopping adventures. Its great on subways and buses. It’s easy to steer with one hand and its tall enough for some one my height (5’10) to steer without kicking the wheels. Under storage is huge! Over all a great bang for your buck.

  23. momof4gurls on April 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    iv had no problems with this stroller at all. i bought it for my 4th daughter in green and its been great it easy to set up and easy to move around even one handed which i cant say about my graco. storage is perfect as well my 9mo old loves it with the ipod!

  24. Carolina always on the run on April 30th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I use this stroller on a daily bases, when I bought it I enjoyed the smooth movement of the wheels and though to my self these wheels wont get stuck like most of the stroller wheels do after a month. Boy was I wrong I have constanly jerk the stroller to make the stroller turn right because the right wheel gets stuck to the point that I have to stop and turn the wheel with my hands to get it to move. So dont do it, dont buy this strolletr

  25. Mommy of 4 Babies on May 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have this same stroller but in the Ruby Red color. For [$], I expected it to be better than the Graco comparable models. My husband loved the look of this, stylish and modern and he loves the bright red. I said since we needed a lightweight stroller why not try it out. It really does manuever very easy and with one hand no problems. The seat reclines to an almost flat position which I really find beneficial for my child who likes to nap often and for newborn babies, however I do NOT like the safety belt. I am get my finger stuck all the time and get nipped. The sunshade is average, could be better, but it’s not the worst I ever seen. The child tray is very small and not deep at all. The tray is very hard to get on and off b/c of this tiny button underneath you have to push to unlock or lock it in place. I struggle with this all the time. The parent does cup a cupholder which is deep enough for large drinks, but it kinda sits right in the way of where your hand goes to push the stroller. The basket is super huge, holds tons of stuff, can be accessed from the front or rear, and seems quite sturdy. The height of the handle bar is comfortable for me (I am 5′ 4″) and I don’t kick the back of the wheels even with my long stride, so that’s a plus! It does not fold up compact as you would think, it still bulks out too much in my opinion. Another downfall and this is major…I have no idea how to take the cover off to wash it. I think I read somewhere that it can only be spot washed…not a bright idea on KLolcraft’s part. Kids can be messy and when I am on the run and my child eats or drinks in the stroller it can get a little dirty. I like to wash the cover of my strollers and keep them very clean and new looking. This is the only stroller I have owned that I can not wash the cover! This is not acceptable. I probably would not have purchased this item if I had known that in advance. So again since the flaws outweigh the positives, the Kolcraft Contours Lite should be priced much lower!

  26. Mother of two on May 4th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I would not reccomend this stroller to anyone. It is made very cheaply. My 9 month old baby isn’t comfortable in it at all because he cannot sit up straight when he wants to and he looks like he’s slipping down from it which he would be if it wasn’t for the seat harness that gets wedged up in between his legs, pressing on his diaper. That’s the most annoying thing. The others are that the seat won’t fully recline, the tray is very hard to remove and is placed too high that if my son were able to sit up, he would knock his head on it. Also, it doesn’t fold compactly, the canopy is too short and doesn’t shade him from the sun, and it hurts my back when I push it for a long time and I’m only 5’3! The only good things about this stroller is that it is light, the basket is long and acessible from front and back, and it is easy to steer. I haven’t had any problem with the wheels like some have complained about. But their are other strollers out there that are light with large baskets so don’t bother with this one.

  27. Beckieforg on June 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I read some of the previous reviews and so far I haven’t had a problem with this stroller and like it very much. I use it for walks around the neighborhood or trips to the store once in awhile. I’m hoping I don’t have problems with the wheels as some people are having. So far so good!!

  28. Fraidycat on June 30th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Handles nicely, lightweight, nice large basket, and in general it looks good. But I have to STRONGLY agree with some of the other reviewers – that the adjustable seat doesn’t not allow my son to sit up enough to a)see everthing, and b)to reach anything on the tray. Maybe this stroller is better suited for a taller/older child!!! You adjust the seat – with a a belt in the back of the seat that you pull tighter to make it more upright, and loosen to lower. Sounds, ok – except that the strap doesn’t tighten enough to keep the seat as high up as the seat goes. My 11 month old has to lean forward to see everything, and and his tush keeps slipping downwards, making it even worse. Oh, and I keep pinching my fingers when I strap him in – cause in order to click the strap in you have to hold the piece quite close to the base….and then..ouch..some of my skin gets pinched hard when it finally clicks in. Sorry, CAN’T RECOMMEND THIS!!

  29. Evvy's Ma on July 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I purchased this stroller before the birth of my daughter and really liked it at first. It had all the features I was looking for. A cup holder, adjustable seat, and a roomy basket that can be accessed easily. In the store it rolled nicely and was really easy to maneuver. Best of all the stroller is very light weight.

    However…none of that matters because the wheels are TERRIBLE! Within a month I was barely able to push it down the sidewalk with out the wheels getting stuck. Every few feet I have to either kick or adjust the front wheels with my hands. I’m really bummed because for the price this stroller fulfilled most of my needs. Maybe some day someone will design the perfect stroller at the perfect price.

  30. NJ Mommy on July 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller came highly recommended to me by a friend but unfortunately my experience with it was not as wonderful. It’s a cute, trendy, lightweight stroller that handles nicely but the tray is quite high and the seat does not sit upright enough for my 1 year old to see anything. The seat backing is quite flimsy and no matter how hard I try to tighten the recline strap I can’t get my son to sit upright in this stroller. The price was reasonable but in the long run I should have spent the extra few dollars to buy a better made stroller. This one just didn’t cut it for us.

  31. joe mama on July 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

  32. Kari on September 5th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    super cute! but the tray is soo hard to remove and it is way to high for my daughter to see over. she slumps into the seat and the straps cut into her legs. We also took it to the fair and it WILL NOT roll on uneven surfaces! NO FUN jerking it around!

  33. mom2onecargiver2all on September 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I purchased this stroller to go to florida. I was surprised at how attractive this stroller was. I searched 6 kmarts for it. Finally found it at BRU. I pull it out of the box and immediately the foam grip handle rips. UGH! I can live with that. Great easy fold for the plane trip. Get to Florida in disney and the thing tips over with my 25 pound daughter in it! The she gets her little finger caught in the 5 point harness strap!!!! I was livid! It did bleed for awhile. After our trip home, I contacted the company about my issues. I was told, this is a highly sought after stroller, and I’m sorry there have been no other complaints, therefore we can’t do anything for you. I wasn’t asking for my money back, just a safer exchange. […]Her little fingers could still get caught, so I tossed it. horrble, bad, bad bad. Bad product and bad service- I also told them, just because she’s the first to get her finger caught, doesn’t mean she’ll be the last. NO GO! RUDE and UNCONCERNED

  34. JOSEPH'S MOM MOM on September 8th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller was purchased as a backup stroller because it was so light and easy to use. Well, we use this stroller more than the $250.00 stroller systems. It has all the qualities as a larger stroller. It’s light, compact, but yet is still roomy enough for my grandson. I am looking to purchase one just for me to keep when I have my grandson.

  35. cupcake on October 11th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    i love this stroller i’ve been using it for the past 3 months and i go out everyday i still haven’t had a problem….i wasn’t sure if i should get it cause of all the bad ratings but i gave it a try and i’m loving it it folds easy,its light,its very pretty :o), and i just love it hopefully i dont have a problem later

  36. best mom on October 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    this stroller is the most lightweight and comfortablle stroller ever, i love it i have no complaints i bought it when my baby was an infant and im still using it now and hes a toddler,, the color is wonderful and people oiin the streets always ask me about it,, they love the color and how light it it and looks…..my dad is older and he carried the stroller with him all the time…… the only negative thing is that when u strap ur baby up be careful with ur fingers b/c u can snap ur thumb.. and the basket is huge which is good

  37. tplan21 on October 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Came almost fully assembled. I have had for over a year and it is still very sturdy and havent had any problems. I am a pretty weak person, but it was still very easy to lift and store. I have received many compliments on the color.

    Canopy coverage is great, under stroller storage is sufficient to store my large diaper bag and shopping bags. Comes with a child tray and cup holder and parent cup holder. Very comfortable for my child and reclines enough for her to take a long nap in.

    This has been one of my best purchases.

  38. julia mommy on November 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    i need to get a new one but not sure what one to buy plzs help me

  39. Busy B on November 27th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I searched high and low for a lightweight stroller that had the features a midsize stroller had~ canopy, child tray, cup holder for me & and under basket. I thought this stroller would be perfect. Since the assembly was pretty easy I thought it was a good sign. After a few months I noticed that I was snapping my fingers in the buckles all the time. Also, the front wheel seem to stick sometimes which is very annoying when you’re turning. Lastly now that my daughter is almost 1, all she wants to do it sit up to see everything and it doesn’t sit upright enough. She still pulls herself up by holding on to the child tray. I wish it just went up a little more!

  40. MrsConcerned on December 21st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is very nice. It is not the best stoller but it is only [$] so it is only to be expected that it does not have every bell and whistle. It is extremely light weight and easy to maneuver. The color is amazing and stands out in a crowd. It does not look like your average stroller. My husband is 6’2″ and he finds that it fits him just as well as me at 5’5″. The i-pod speaker is a bust if that is your reason for buying this stroller then search elsewhere you can barely hear the music. The center strap could use some padding we took the shoulder strap pads and placed then on the center strap and just bought some shoulder cushions with the little animals on them […]. The head piece is a bust as well and I would recommend the *Boppy Black Luxe Noggin Nest Head Support* piece to prevent the occurence of flathead. Front wheels are a little “rickty” but remember that it is a light weight stroller meant for light shopping or light outtings not to take the soccer games or somewhere with rough/uneven terrain. I would recommend this as secondary stroller for a mom who does not want to lug around a heavy stroller, it is particularly great when you are by yourself. Also the I see a lot of people think the cup holder is in their child’s face but my son is 4 months and he is almost sitting above the cup holder and does not seem to mind. It does not sit straight up but who wants to be at a 90 degree angle??? I think most people who did not like this stroller are expecting to get platinum at the sterling silver price. Otherwise it’s great.

    We bought this stroller when our baby was 4 months old. It’s very light and easy to open/close. It’s great for the mall and paved surfaces. I took it on gravel a couple of times and now the front wheels are not doing so well! It’s a good stroller, shows more expensive than it really is, and you can fit quite a bit on the bottom basket. Just don’t go off roading with it as front wheels will mess up quickly.

    First of all, there is no stroller out there that will completely satisfy your every need especially if you don’t plan to pay much for it. With that being said:

    Pros: lightweight, removable child’s tray, nice size canopy, large basket, very easy to assemble (less than 10 mins), nice material and padding and rides very easily and smoothly, one hand steering, stroller can stand on its own and comes with a locking mechanism to make sure the stroller stays closed. The one I have is a very attractive wine color.

    Cons: parent cup holder is a waste, child’s tray is small (both of which aren’t too important to me anyway), no window on the canopy, does not fully recline flat, straps used to recline seat and adjust the harness are can be frustrating at times, does not fold down completely flat due to the seat but still not very bulky and is manageable, you’ll also need both hands to fold the stroller down.

    Overall, the stroller is light and simple and very easy to assemble. I don’t plan to use it too often so I’m satisfied with it. I’d recommend it.

    I really wanted this stroller so I would not have to lag around my big travel system stroller with my two year old so I bought this one thinking it was better than an umbrella stroller since it had a snack tray for my son and a cup holder for me. My cup holder broke off within two weeks and the snack tray is so high that my two year old can’t sit comfortably becuase it is a shallow seat the the snack tray hits him at nearly his chin! and he is tall two year old. Also it does not recline well for napping and if you have it reclined you can’t get to any of the stuff in the undercarriage. This stroller would have actaully been better for a younger small baby who didn’t need to sit up and didn’t need the snack tray. PS. I did purchase online without seeing it in person ( my first mistake)

    Like with anything that has wheels they have to be greased or oiled every now and then! For the parents who are having problems with sticking wheels spray a little W-D 40 or take a little grease and put in in the front wheels ! they will work like it was new again! I’ve done it several times and it always works for me!

    Very sharp looking, needs bigger basket. The rubber stuff on the handle doestn’t look like it will last very long. The recline isn’t so good. My son doesn’t like that he can’t sit all the up and look around. I was hoping to use this stroller for a while, but it looks like I will have to purchase a new one! Looks are good, but it has to function well for a busy MOM!!

    We have a heavy BOB for the outdoor thing. this is a great stroller for shopping and such. My son has used it for well over a year now and he really likes it ( he’s just over 2 ). Love the tray for him, I haven’t had anything break. We love the wheels the best, they are wide, solid and rubberish, not cheap hollow plastic like so many. We live in the country and it handles rougher roads just fine. Weakest feature is that the childs back support is somewhat weak with a strap to recline, not a rigid/stiff board like some strollers, but I don’t know if that is bad, my son seems very kick back and relaxed in it,and falls asleep when tired. The tray is not too high, it is roomy. He reaches his snacks fine. It steers great. When I bought it, the sales person said it was a great little stroller, drove great and had many bells and whistles. But he said it was ugly,( trying to sell the Maclaren )I like its looks, and for well under a hundred bucks, it was a great buy. don’t buy for the music thing (junk), but the little pocket is useful for cell phones. And its basket is really big, fits my medium size cooler, and extra clothing. who needs more than that?

    Easy to put together — 15 minutes. Folds and open easily. My diaper bags fits perfectly in basket below or I can throw it over the handle. My 14 month old loves the tray and sleeps great in the reclined seat. Rolls great and maneuvers well. Great small stroller for 2nd baby when you’re done with huge travel system!

    I love this stroller!! I have three kids and we are always on the go this stoller has been wonderful!

  50. Mom of 4 on April 30th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Bought this for my fourth child. I have owned every stroller that exists. You name it, I’ve probably owned it. This stroller gets me giddy! It is truly perfect and at it’s price (I paid [$]), it’s insanely fabulous. I don’t think the first time parent would appreciate this as much as the parent who has lugged around the 100 pounders, etc. The ONLY issue I have with it is that the full upright position does not allow a smaller child (mine is now 1 year) to sit up fully. People must love this stroller because after looking for another one right now on line (I just backed into mine yesterday with the van….) […] What does that tell you? Enjoy!

    Loved the stroller when it was new. Got rid of it in about six months.Front wheels kept getting stuck sideways then squeeking. Did not sit up strait, baby kept pulling herself forward and had to hold on if she wanted to sit up strait. Once I got the wheels going, the ride was smooth.
    Good for temp. stroller.Love the color, able to locate it from a distance.

    I love this stroller! I have been using it for about 8 months now, son was 4 months old. It is so lightweight and easy to unfold. This makes life so much easier when shopping or strolling around the neighborhood (we use a jogging stroller for longer walks and when there’s a lot of snow) We have used ut many times for travelling, including to NYC and Las Vegas. It’s amazing how well the wheels handle grass, cobblestones, boardwalks, etc. I love the bright colors and i find the design quite attractive.
    There are areas that need to be improved: a) the restraint straps are kind of flimsy 2)the seat does not fully recline or sit straight, which could be frustrating for the chd 3) it does not fold as compact as an umbrella stroller but it’s still way smaller than a regular stroller.

    This stroller was good for the first month. Soon after the front wheels would get stuck and fold under as if the entire stroller was going to collaspe. It didn’t happen every time so I continue to use – however by 4 months in every single time I would use this stroller I wasn’t able due to the front wheels. Save your money and buy something better.
