    LOVE IT, Its roomy, confortable when my daughters sleeps, It holds her bottle and she can eat her chees puffs off the tray, and rides great for the price. I will say you will not be disappointed !!!!

    Easy to assemble
    Simple product, no bells and whistles- just what you need.
    Car seat adaptor tricky to figure out at first, but called the company and they walked me through it easily.

    Would not buy if you are a bigger jogger- just bought it for outside walks this summer, does not seem sturdy enough for jogging though.

    I love this stroller. This is my first child but I grew up in a life where I had to take care of my two brothers and the stroller that my mother got was a good one and I thought it was great then. Now they have these jogging strollers and even if your not jogging they are great for going over bumps and not waking the baby up. I love the fact the the tires acan be blown up again because the stroller that my mom had, the wheels got broken off and then the stroller was no good any more. I also like that my baby is only 3 months old and I can put my carseat in this stroller and still feel that my baby will be safe. I like that this stroller also comes with the bug screan and you don’t have to buy it seperately. The bugs are terrible for the real little ones. I like the fact that the stroller has two cup holders because you are not always walking alone. I also like that there is a small compartment that closes. The stroller that my mom had had a compartment but you could not close it up and this would fall out when you went over bumbs. Thank you for listening. I don’t think there was anything that I didnt like about it.

    We live in the Delaware County – Catskill Mountains(known for its rocks & shale). Our 900 foot long driveway is ruff gravel and our everyday stroller was hard to push and not a smooth ride for our 10 month old. We purchased this stroller in hopes that it would be a smoother ride and it’s perfect! The basket underneath is large enough that our 10 lb. Chihuahua rides in it with room to spare. We did have a problem with the netting staying in place and had to attach it to different bars and it seems to stay in place when we use it. It’s fairly compact when folded and fits in the back of our Santa Fe. It does come with an attachment for an infant seat but we never used it so I don’t know how well it works. I would not recommend it for Mall shopping because of size.

    I love this stroller because it is so easy to maneuver. The front wheel can lock so you get to choose if you want swivel or locked wheel. I enjoy running and walking with it. My son seems to love it too.

  7. Rual walker on April 29th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is a great buy for the money. The ride is very smooth and it handles almost all surfaces. The only problem I have is that it doesn’t do great in sand, we live in a sandy area and it gets thru the sand but with some extra pushing. There is also plently of room for my daughter and storage under the seat. As far as putting it together it couldn’t of been any easier!

    This stroller is great! The only complaint I have is the wobbly front wheel. We had to tighten it right when we put the stroller together, and it already needs to be done again after only 2 weeks. It’s okay if I lock the front wheel, put one of the main reason I picked this stroller was for the swivel wheel. My husband is going to take off the front wheel and see what’s up and tighten it really, really good. Hopefully that’ll help.

    I was worried at how big it is folded down, but it fits fine in our PT Cruiser’s trunk by lift up the shelf above a little bit.

    My husband put this stroller together in 30 minutes. I like that you have the option of locking the front wheel or letting it swivel. You can’t beat this storller for the price. The universal infant car seat option is great to have. On our walks I can push it with ease using one hand and hold on to my 2 yr olds hand with the other. It is a bit heavy and bulky when it folds up but the pros out weigh the cons.

    After using my friends regular Graco stroller on her uneven sidewalks, I decided not that was too frustrating and not for me. After reading reviews about the Baby Trend jogger and the Instep Safari, I decided to go with the Safari and I am very glad I did. Out of the box, I was very surprised at how small and lightweight it was. It went together quite easily, I only needed to tighten the swivel wheel with a wrench because it was a bit wobbly, but that fixed that right away. This stroller drives so smooth and very durable. It folds up in a snap with one hand. I was also very surprised that it came with the infant carrier holder since it does not state that on this site, but the carrier holder is universal and works with any carrier.

    I like how it can work with any car seat. I also like how easy it is to push and it can turn on a dime. The only downfall is that the canopy can only go one way, so the driver is unable to see the baby while they walk. But you can pull the canopy all the way back to do that, not a huge deal.

    I have used the stroller to run a couple of times. So far, I think that it is a great stroller for the price. I lock the front wheel because it is a bit choppy if you dont. There is no safety strap, which is a little bummer. It folds really easily and my son seems to be comfortable. I like the cup holder for me. I had no idea it came with a mosquito net…BONUS!

  13. mom on May 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    wobbling wheel that needs constant adjustments.

  14. Katie trying to get back into shape on May 20th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have used this stroller daily since I got it. I have a 7 week old and the car seat adaptor works wonderful. I have only used it for walking, but plan on using it for running. The front wheel is a little shaky when not locked, so I just lock it all the time. It still works great!

  15. Alexis' Mommy on May 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is a great jogger that actually works for jogging!! I take it out everyday and roller blade with it as well. It is a smooth ride and the front wheel doesn’t wiggle at all. It’s a little bulky to fit it in the trunk but it’s possible.

  16. Jake's Mommy on May 30th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is a real easy stroller to put together – my son is very comfortable in it and it’s great for our neighborhood strolls!

  17. Nurse Mommy on June 6th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I use the stroller for walking. Although I would have loved to use it for jogging, but it’s not steardy enough to do so. I like the universal carseat adaptor. I wish all jogging stroller had that. It’s very convience for parents who don’t have the top of the line/name brand carseat. i like the look. I had the stroller for less than 2 months and the front wheel started to wobbles making it a high risk for falls. I locked the wheel hoping that will fix the problem but it didn’t. It just got worst. the two back wheels started squeaking and it looks like it’s coming from the spools. I had to return the stroller and get a different one. I rather pay extra money for a steardy stroller that I can jog with than see my baby fall off and get hurt.

  18. wellingtonhunter on June 29th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    It looked great and was very easy to put together. However we returned after just two weeks because ours had a terrible wobble on the front wheel and the strap holding our son up gave way on one side leaving him leaning. The harness was difficult to adjust and never seemed to fit right. It alwasy seemed to snug in the crotch. Our son easily wiggled his arms out of harness.

    We liked the look, weight, comfort and features of this stroller. Used it the first time just to walk and all was great. Used the second time lastnight to jog with and it started to make a clicking noise, looked down and the front wheel was shaking violently, even though we had it on lock/non swivel. I returned to walking and it got better, but if my walk pace increase the ticking and shaking started coming back. Due to the front wheel being being swivel it has some give to it and can’t be tightened anymore to fix the problem. If you are looking for a casual walking stroller, this is good….anything at a faster pace and the front wheel is likely to go haywire. […] The next one I go for will be one with the stationary front wheel. I’m afraid swivels just won’t work well for working out/excercise needs.

  20. Caden's mom on July 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We use it for going off the beaten path, and strolling around town. I love the fact it can be used with his car seat, or any car seat. Seems to work just fine, the front wheel seems to wobble a bit, but nothing that makes me worry, I have tightened some things, and that helps. I have not used it for jogging, so I cannot comment on that.

  21. Cautious yet practical mom on August 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I was looking for a stroller that I could use for walking/trails as well as everyday use (such as going to the mall). The swivel/lock option allows for both uses – swivel makes the stroller more nimble for swerving and the lock function makes it usable for walking/jogging.

    I love that it has an adapter for carseats so that I can use it with my newborn. Otherwise, I’d have to wait until he was 5-6 months like most other jogging strollers. It’s fairly easy to put together and is not any more bulky than other strollers in this category. If money was not an issue or I was a jogger/runner, I would have probably purchased a BOB. For my budget and use, this works perfectly fine.

    I got this jogger b/c it has a universal adaptor for car seats. My baby is only 3 months and can’t yet fit into the joggers alone. It’s easy to pop up & close. It isn’t very heavy and fits easily into my Edge.
