    I use this stroller a good part of the time and have found it very useful for the most part. It’s very lightweight and folds up nicely, so you can just pop it into your trunk with absolutely no hassle. I use it a lot when I travel, either by plane and car and find it to be my best friend. Because it was inexpensive, I didn’t care leaving it at the gate when I boarded a plane. It got a little dirty and beat up when they put it below with the luggage, but it held up nicely. My only complaint, and it’s a big one, is that if you’re taller than 5’7, it’s really uncomfortable to push. I’m 5’9 and have a hard time because the handles are so low and I end up having to bend over a lot when pushing my child.

    I bought this stroller in an emergency while on vacation for my then 8 month old son. Needless to say it served it’s purpose for that trip and didn’t expect to really use it again. Now over two years later I use it for my one year old daughter STILL! Well worth the [$]. We never used it as a primary stroller for either child, but it was the stroller that stayed in the back of the car JUST IN CASE we needed it, and those “just in cases” did happen quite often, especially on unexpected shopping stops. Definitely worth it as long as you’re not using it as a primary stroller.

    i brought this stroller because i needed something light…due to the fact that i travel alot and by myself so i need something lightweight to be able to carry…this stroller is great!! i will buy more when i have more kids!!

    This stroller is definitely not a primary stroller, but is great to use as a cheap back-up. I bought it to bring to baseball games, shopping, etc. It doesn’t recline, doesn’t have a basket, or cupholder. But for just a little, cheap umbrella stroller, it does the job.

    This stroller is great for getting into tight places. I love that it comes with a hood. The only thing that I really wish that it had was adjustable handles. I am 5’10” and have to bend over to push the stroller.

    Best umbrella stroller out there. The only downfall is that it does not have a basket but it does have a nice net bag in the bag that holds quite a bit! The sunshade works great and tilts to shield child at all angles. Easy to store and very lightweight! I have a jogging stroller, a combo stroller, and a double stroller and I always go to this tride and true umbrella!

    It’s excellent for the price. We had a big travel system, but it didn’t fit into the x-ray machine at the security check point at the airport. When we checked it in, the airline broke the hind wheels. However, this little lightweight stroller fits easily into the X-ray machine. Unfortunately, the hook that holds the stroller together when collapsed broke off. I also agree with one of the reviewers about the height of the handles–I’m 5’7″ and I have to hunch a little bit too when I push the stroller. Otherwise, it was definitely a good buy.

    We used this for the first time on vacation. It held up even over some rough terrain. It has a nice little shade and the little net bag was just big enough to hold some diaper changing stuff and a few bottles. Our little guy seemed comfortable in it. It is a durable, convenient, and inexpensive stroller.

    Little flimsy, Needs a better awingon the stroller . overrall ok for [$].

    The stroller served its purpose, but I was very dissappointed when I put it together at home and found that there was no cup holder or bag like the description said. The associates at the store informed me that the description online was incorrect and politely directed me to stroller accessaries so that I could buy my own. It actually costs more to buy the stroller and storage bag than it would just to get the better stroller for $5 more and get it together.

    I bought this when my son turned 1 yr old to use for quick outings instead of the bulkier stroller. It would be perfect EXCEPT the handles are so low! I’m 5’5" and it’s OK only if I’m in flat shoes. My older kids can maneuver the baby around easy because they’re shorter than me. I doubt I would have bought this had I known how low the handles are – so, I would not recommend it if you’re taller than me 🙂

    This is a great simple stroller. Its just what you need. Lightweight, simple to throw in back of car, nothing fancy.

  13. PregoMami on June 29th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller for my 3 year old, we are going to NYC and wanted a small stroller to take in the car with us and to use around the city. He fits pretty good in it. The umbrella won’t shade the sun to well, but it does keep it out of his face a little at least.

    This is a good stroller for quick trips and little space in the car. I would not recommend for purchase of the only stroller I still love Graco stroller I got when my son was fist born. But I do look forward to putting my daughter in this one too one day.

    Love this little stroller – I actually got two of them for my shower and kept both – they are so handy and easy to open and close and it fits just about anywhere.

  15. Twin Mom on July 2nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I am a mom of twins and I bought two of these. They are great to take to the park, airplane, mall, etc. They are lightweight and sturdy. They do the trick for [$]. I have 2 of the big bulky double strollers, which I use when I am out and about alone.

  16. macy on July 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I absolutely love this stroller. It is a great value for the money.
    We take it to Milwaukee Brewers games and it folds so small that
    we keep it under our seats!
    It has a nice sized fabric/mesh bag in the back and it does have a
    cup holder but you definitely need to have a tight sealed top on the
    cup as it too is only made of mesh/fabric.
    I am buying one for my sister yet this week!

  17. Out for the bargains mommy on August 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Liked the way it looked when I saw it at the store. I got home and opened it to find that it didn’t come with a storage bag as most umbrella strollers do. That was my fault, should have checked. Other than that, I guess it’s mediocre. I would suggest to just spend a few more bucks on another that already has a storage bag, or just make sure to bring a light weight diaper bag with you to hang on the handles.

  18. Boston Mom on August 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The stroller is definately good for a quick trip into a store or around the block. It’s compact, lightweight and rolls well.

    However, it’s very short and the sun shade doesn’t do a darn thing. I’m barely 5’0″ and it’s fine for me but my husband has to bend over to use it (and he’s only 5’10”). There’s also no storage really other than a small bag and when there’s much in it and no kid, it tips over. We’re researching other alternatives….
