  1. Louise T on August 25th, 2006 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller while on a trip so that I’d have a lightweight stroller to use on the trip and in the airport. It folds nicely, and is very well built. The canopy adjust to cover whereever the sun is which is very nice. It also comes with a great storage bag which was great on the plane, although it took my husband a couple of times to figure out just how to get the wheels in right. Our problem is that the handles are fairly short and it is not very comfortable to walk behind. I keep kicking the back wheels unless I really pay attention and walk off to the side to avoid them. If the handlebars would adjust for people over 5’8″ and come out far enough that I could avoid the backwheels I’d give this stroller 5 stars. So if you are not tall this is a great stroller.

    This stroller was a mistake for a taller toddler. My daughter can wiggle her feet behind the footrest and put her toes between the front two wheels and stops the stroller and/or pinches her foot. She keeps doing it despite scoldings and foot discomfort. I am happy with the feaures otherwise.

  3. Nicole O on October 6th, 2006 at 12:00 am

    We got this stroller for our vacation to New England, and we loved it. My husband used it going up the trails at the Flume in New Hampshire. And it went everywhere in Maine. Up hills and mountains all over the New England. I got a lot of compliments at the parks and airport too. I have told everyone about it. The only thing I would change is making the bag a little better and make the handles a little higher. But other than that my son likes it and we liked it.

  4. Cynthia M on October 16th, 2006 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller a week ago for my 9-month-old daughter because I was tired of hauling our full-size stroller out of the car for quick trips. I love the lightweight and how easy it is to take in and out of the car. The mechanism to collapse the stroller is sometimes tricky to manipulate, but other than that I think it’s great. I also like the manuverability, especially in stores with small
    arrow aisles.

  5. Julie on October 30th, 2006 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller so I didn’t have to lug my big, bulky stroller around. I really like this stroller because it’s easy, lightweight, and folds quickly. Folding it can be a little tricky though. I wish the basket underneath was a little bigger. Overall, I would recommend this stroller if you are looking to downsize and you don’t want to spend a lot of money.

  6. Eric W on December 24th, 2006 at 12:00 am

    The handles are too short and my wife and I both kick the wheels. Major design flaw! I wouldn’t be surprised if they pull it off the shelves. I talked to the manager when I returned it and he said almost ever one had been returned with the same issue.

  7. michelle P on February 14th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Love it! I love the fact that the seat reclines back and makes a cozy spot for my 19-month-old to snuggle into. The basket is small so I did have to get a stroller bag (fits on the hadles) and a cup holder but other than that it’s great! The removable flap in the back gives my son plenty of air when needed and blocks the cold air when needed (just zips on and off) I have recommended this to several friends and they love it too! I’m 100% satisfied!

  8. Leslie F on February 23rd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! I bought it to use in airports and it’s been a godsend. I’m quite tall and the handles accommodate my height perfectly! I don’t have to crouch! The seat is nicely padded but not overdone. There is enough of a recline that my daughter doesn’t have “droopy head” when she naps. And above all, it’s so light! I also liked that it came with a travel bag!

  9. Jennifer R on April 27th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    When you do not have much space, this is really convenient. Keep in mind, it is a lightweight stroller, so if you are expecting lots of extras, they aren’t there. The price and performance beat out all other lightweights!

  10. melissa g on April 30th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    we love this stroller. It is very easy to fold and lightweight. We loved having the basket on the bottom, it may be small but it holds diapers wipes and jackets. Doesn’t have a cup holder but overall it’s a wonderful stroller.

  11. Tiffany M on May 9th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This is a really awesome stroller. I needed a lightweight smaller stroller for quick walks around home and trips on a plane and this is perfect. Very easy to fold and to maneuver around. I highly recommend this product.

  12. Tam W on May 18th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I like this stroller because it is lightweight and folds down like the umbrella stroller. My 13mo. old is tall for his age, but also very active so I do not mind carry this stroller around when we are out in the mall. If you are looking to downsize to a nice stroller this is one to pick.

  13. Sandra D on May 21st, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I love the color and looks but it’s not functional. I touch the wheels when I am walking even at a slow pace, the basket is extremely uncomfortable to put even small items and the worse I traveled with my baby and passing through security was horrible because it doesn’t fold with one hand therefore, didn’t like it.

  14. Jamie R on June 1st, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I purchased this because it is lightweight and can fold up easily. I was really just looking for a cheap umbrella stroller, but there were none that had shoulder straps. I am very pleased with this stroller. The canopy is a great addition. I hang some toys from the sidebar, which heloves. I have the blue one and it is just perfect. Great buy!

  15. Robin on June 4th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Just bought this stroller for our 8-month-old daughter and took her to the mall. She loved the ride! My only complaint is that the umbrella doesn’t shade much. But I knew that when I bought it. FYI: People should go to Babies R Us and “test drive” the strollers before purchasing. You can pull the demos off the shelf and stroll them around the store. That’s what I did. At least you know if the height is correct, if it folds the way you want it to fold, if your feet hit the wheels, etc. Baby equipment is too expensive to ultimately be disappointed with in the end.

  16. pilnerak on June 22nd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I really liked this stroller because it is so lightweight, the umbrella is adjustable to keep the sun out no matter what direction you are going and it is nicely made. Major Flaw…the handles are too short for me and my husband—feet hit the wheels—I am 5’6″—we had to return for that reason. Very disappointed because other than that, it is very very nice for the money.

  17. Mom of 2 cuties on July 4th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This is a great small stroller. We got it as a smaller stroller for quick trips but also for our 4 year old when we are at all day somewhere (like today we are going to use it in DC for the 4th). We have a pretty tall 4 year old and tried many before she didn’t reply that she was too big. Something to keep inmind evenwhen you are buying a stroller for a small baby (the Combi sport, Maclaren volo, baby trend and Aria were all too small).
    my husband and I aretall people 5’8″ and 6’2″ and neither of us haveproblems with the handles being to short, they are very comfortable.
    This is a great stroller because it folds up like an umbrella with a great carry bag but has big stroller comfort. The seat and back have padding for a more comfortable ride. The sunshade is decent, that would be the only reason I can’t give it a five, one that came down more, but I already have a ray shade I’ll use.
    As far as the small basket and no cup holder, just buy an organizer and clipon cup holder and then you are set. For the money this is great!

  18. Jenn on July 5th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I received this off my registry and what a mistake it was to even put it on there. I am very disappointed with it. I constantly kick the wheels as I walk. The handles are a strange height and the straps are very uncomfortable on my 6 mo. old. The umbrella does not block any sun. I have used it twice and wish I could return it.

  19. JessaD on July 6th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I wanted a lightweight stroller that would not take up alot of space when folded. I also wanted something my baby would find comfortable. This stroller provided all of this. We take it everywhere. My daughter loves being in it. We’re so happy we didn’t get a huge clunky stroller. This one is perfect.

  20. mrs d on July 7th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    i love it . was looking for a light weight stroller that i could handle and keep in my car because i have my grandson the majority of the time. he’s two yrs and i needed the stroller with all the features of a full size, most of all looking for one that reclined enough so his neck wouldn’t be bent down when napping. and I leave the sun shade unsnapped then when the sun is hitting at a certin angel i can position it to block the sun. I am 5ft4 and have no problem with walking behind it . my daugheter is 5ft6 and she said she had to watch not to hit the wheels with her feet when she walked. thats the only problem the handles could of been a couple inches longer. then it would of been perfect 10. for the price, and all its features, is great..

  21. speters on July 8th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Overall, I am very happy with this stroller. Like the other reviewers noted, you have to get used to walking behind it to not kick the wheels, you cannot fold it with one hand, and the sun shade isn’t the greatest. However, no one has mentioned that when the stroller is folded with the sun shade attached, the front wheels rub on the inside of the canopy, leaving dirty black marks all over. I still love this little stroller but I carry an extra towel to put over the wheels now.

  22. TiffanyMc on July 11th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Great light-weight stroller. No problems that I would lose sleep over. Shades my babes eyes great, folds easy, VERY light, perfect for travel. Yeah, the wheels get the shade a bit dirty when folded but hey, its a stroller, its going to get a little dirty. I just wipe it off every now and then. I love this stroller better than my full size Chicco stroller! And they’re both great. To be honest, this little stroller holds more stuff when I’m out shopping than my big one does! GREAT product! ( love the travel bag for plane trips!!)

  23. Deirdre on July 12th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I just bought this stroller. If you go to the store to buy it, they might have other colors…the one I bought is a fresh-looking green with large orderly dots. Tres chic. Anyway, I’m 5’4″ and haven’t experienced the wheel-kicking or the problems with the height of the handles that my, obviously much taller, peers have had. I will take the advice of another poster, however, and keep a towel in the trunk to wrap the wheels in.

    I would say the only REAL cons are that the shoulder straps are sort of difficult to get unhooked until you really get used to the way everything goes together. Plus, closing the stroller is hard to do with summer shoes/flip-flops on…I almost always have to bend over to pull the lever to collapse it.

  24. MomandNoah on July 15th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I was looking for a lightweight but sturdy everyday stroller, and this was it!! I put Noah (7months) in it in the store and he was so comfy, he loved the harness straps(to play with).I fold and unfold this thing all day long-one handed (and one footed)!! I did notice that the canopy was getting dirty and it didn’t really register till I read the reviews. But any way overall..We love the zipper recline, the huge basket, super easy to steer, one handed open and close…but the little clicker to keep it closed is too stiff to use, I do have a wheel kicking problem(you do get used to it), and dirty canopy(boohoo).
    I still absolutely LOVE this stroller, I get so many great comments on it!..BUY IT!

  25. Adele on July 17th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stroller! I like it better than my full size. My daughter is 5 months old, and seems more comfortable in this than her other one. I like that it reclines – and easily – for naptime. The 5-point harness is terrific as well. It is very easy to manuever and is compact and light. I also like that the canopy is adjustable. I am 5’4 and my husband is 6′ and neither of us have problems with the handles being too short or hitting the wheels ith our feet. The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because that basket is a little small and hard to get at… If it were a little bigger, this stoller would be PERFECT. I just hang my diaper bag over the handle, though, and that works fine.

  26. Amy on July 25th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I bought this because I thought it would be tall enough for me since I’m 5′ but once I took it for a stroll I kept hitting the back wheels unless I leaned over to push. Also, the latch to close it was close to impossible. It had a few good qualities like the moveable canopy and light weight. I fyou’re shorter this may work for you except the latch thing. I ended up buying the Maclaren Volo and I’m VERY happy with it.

  27. djsee on July 31st, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Overall a great choice to travel with – very compact and lightweight. The only problem I had with it was that when my daughter did fall asleep she sometimes struggled to get comfortable as there is no option to keep the feet up and the recline position isn’t too far back.

  28. Traveln' Mom on August 1st, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This is a great lightweight stroller. It folds and unfolds easily and manuvers GREAT! I bought this for our trips to Chicago on the train and loved the fact that it has a carry strap and bag. I’ve ended up using this one instead of my full size Chicco strolller for every other outing as well, not that I don’t love my full-size stroller, but this one us just so convienent. As far as kicking the wheels, I’m 5’7 and haven’t had too much of a problem with it.

  29. Joyful on August 6th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I just purchased this stroller today, and went straight from […] to the mall. I’m so glad I tried this stroller in the store; I was not looking to spend that much on a lightweight stroller, but once I put my 2 year-old son in it and pushed him around the store, I had to have it! When we got to the mall, he actually wanted to get in the stroller because it was so comfortable. I love the design; the only reason I did not give 5 stars is because I would have liked a cup holder, but we have one that attaches to the bar, so I’ll use that. The lower basket is small, but big enough to put a couple of diapers, a small pack of wipes, and a pair of shoes inside. I even propped up a drink in the corner, and it stayed up. I had no problem kicking the wheels, and the handles are a perfect height (I am 5’4″). Love this stroller and will be recommending it to friends.

  30. Smilin'Jeep! on August 7th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    My 2 year old loves this stroller and so do I! It is light and folds up easily and nicely. I recommend keeping a towel in the car to cover the wheels after you fold it or the shade will get dirty from the wheels. Other than that, I have nothing but nice things to say about this stroller. The basket below is small, but most umbrella strollers don’t even have one. It’s nice to have to hold things like bottled water, snacks, small toys, etc. This stroller is worth the money, but try purchasing it with a coupon to save a few bucks! I’m ready to give up my big stroller I used w/my infant carrier and so is my son, leaving a lot more space the trunk of my car!

  31. 3 in 1 Mom on August 11th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This stoller is really light and easy to use. I had to get rid of the travel system I was using originally because I couldn’t fit anything else in my trunk. This stroller takes up little room. My 10 month old son is comfortable and secure with the shoulder straps and reclining seat. The only negative is the small basket underneath and no cup holder. But overall I am very happy with it.

  32. Renae on August 12th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This stroller rocks! There are more expensive lightweight strollers on the market today that have the same functionality if not less than this one does. I was very impressed when trying it out with my baby in the store. The canopy is adjustable if you un-snap it from the back of the stroller so it has great coverage for my baby! It’s very lightweight and a great price! This is definitely the best lightweight stroller out there!

  33. happy mom on August 15th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Recomend this stroller. Lightweight, reclining seat, easy to open and close, great for traveling.

  34. Finally on August 16th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    We have been through many strollers, including a travel system, an umbrella stroller, and a light weight stroller – all of which weren’t really meeting our needs.

    I picked this stroller up because it reclined (although not too much still works well) and had a five point harness. My youngest daughter was climbing out of all our previous strollers. She absolutely loves this stroller and doesn’t even try to get out. she is one and sleeps comfortably when she needs to.

    The ride is very smooth and my husband thinks its the best stroller for its low cost. In addition, it folds very easily.

  35. Michelle on August 17th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I’ve had this stroller for over a year. My son is 2yrs. old. I purchased it to to down size so I didn’t have to take my big stroller everywhere. My feet hit the wheels as I walk (I am 5’10) which I don’t like. Other than that my son doesn’t mind sitting in it, however I found that it really only goes in one position. I do like the basket on the bottom since most umbrella strollers don’t have that. It has held up well in the last year and goes over “rocky, bumpy” terrain very well. I would only recommend to shorter friends with a smaller stride.

  36. MB Mom on August 17th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Finally took out product to use today with 4.5 month old daughter. Highly disappointed. Planning on returning it ASAP. I am 5’10” and the handles are too low. I have to bend over to push it. The straps do not tighten enough to make it safe for my daughter. The wheels are too close together and I kick the stroller as I walk. And I cant close it unless I pick it up and close it with my hand. So disappointed. Didnt even make it out the door.

  37. Jen on August 27th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Bought this stroller as an alternative to our Graco Metrolite and it’s worked great for us. I love that it reclines slightly and that the shade canopy can be moved from the top of the stoller all the way down to block the sun.

  38. Gabe's mom on September 1st, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I returned my other umbrella stroller for this one and I LOVE it. I can put my very heavy diaper bag AND shopping bags on the back and the stoller won’t tip back even without baby. It’s great for keeping baby safe in the seat – my 3 month old wiggles a lot and this kept him in place through the whole mall, I would not recommend for tall people – I am 5’4 and kicked the wheels a couple times. Gabriel loves this because he can look around. If you use your hand to unlock the stoller it is easy to stow away.

  39. MK, first time mom on September 3rd, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller to take on a family trip to Italy. We did lots of walking and this stoller is wonderful! We did lock the front wheels and the bumpiness was less. Our daughter loved the ride and the canopy worked great. I am almost 5’10 and really didn’t mind the length of the handles. I had to bend over a little, but not like I would have with the true “umbrella” strollers. My husband and I love it!

  40. Andrea on September 12th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This stroller works great for me, for just quick trips where my 11 month old won’t be in it for long. I bought this because I needed something to use for the last 5 months of my second pregnancy, instead of our heavy Graco Duo Glider. It works great, however my son’s doctor said it was not appropriate for use for extended periods of time, since it is not as supportive as a traditional stroller.

  41. Jessica on September 12th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I bought this so that I could get my son to and from his daycare, since he is too heavy to carry. It is a wonder. He is comfortable in it, it’s easy to steer, and the suspension in the wheels is as good, if not better than in my peg perego. I use this as my main stroller now. The canopy even swivels to block the sun at all different angles. I highly recommend this to anyone and everyone.

  42. FL MOM on September 12th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I really liked this stroller but I had to return it because my husband is 6’4 and this was way too low and unconfortable for him to use. I am 5’7 and it was even little too low for myself. My feet would touch the weels while walking.
    It’s a very cute stroller with exellent big wheels, and my baby sure liked it. I also loved the bright red color. I bought MacLaren instead, that works better for us.

  43. jenn l on September 17th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Very easy to use and lightweight…love it!

  44. karen on September 25th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This is a nice, easily moveable stroller, but the canopy keeps snapping off of the body of the stroller when I close it for storage……. I dont know if anyone thinks im hinging it wrong… please help. otherwise the stroller is fantastic… ( im 5 5 and a half)

  45. Treyz on September 26th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I like the stroller, it is light weight and easy to put up and collapse. I don’t like the shade though, it is always coming off and the clips are hard to push back on.

  46. Jennifer on October 9th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Stroller is very lightweight, which is excellent. It folds easily, but the locking clasp is a little hard to push down. I’m 5’9″ and I feel like I’m a little too tall for it. I’m not having to hunch over to push it, but I also can’t walk comfortably. Also, my feet hit the wheels when I walk. Not because I have big feet, but because the back wheels are close together! Overall it’s a good stroller. But I’d recommend it most for shorter people.

  47. Busy mom on October 10th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I use this stroller as a back up for my son. He really loves it. The way the front buckles, I can actually attach a toy so he can play with it and not drop it on the ground. I have traveled on an aircraft 3 times and the cover it comes with is a great thing! Sometimes the shade pops off but that’s because on one of the trips we forgot to put the cover on and they bent the shade so it kind of leans to the side.

  48. mom of an active 9 month old on October 17th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I got this stroller b/c I wanted a lightweight stroller that I could use when running errands.

    It is lightweight and durable and folds very nicely, however, my 9 month old HATES it!!! Everytime I put her in it, she only lasts about 5 minutes before she starts fidgeting and whining…She just squirms and squirms and can’t get comfortable. (and she’s not like that in all strollers – just this one). Also, the sun shade is WAY TOO TINY!!! It provides NO sun coverage – I have never been able to get it to sit quite right, and you have to take it off every time you fold the stroller.

  49. Emma's Mom on October 18th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. I have had it for about 2 months now, and I love using it. It is very lightweight and easy to store in my car. I can see how tall people wouldn’t like it and would kick the wheels, but I am 5’3″ and have no problem with it. Great Stroller!!!

  50. Mom of 1 very busy little boy on October 20th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I stroller overall is great. It is very compact, easy to put down and take back up. Decent storage in basket for a small stroller.

    Downfalls:
    #1 – If you have long legs, you will tend to step on the wheels. I have to make sure that I take smaller steps so I don’t fall over the wheels.

    #2 – My husband is 6′ 2″ and the handles are not long enough for him to be comfortable. He has to walk very close to it to be able to hold onto the handles correctly, but then he finds the same problem that I do. He steps on the wheels.
    Would be nice if they sold handle extensions.

    Other than those complaints the stroller is great. 🙂

  51. Cathleen's mom on October 26th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    We bought this stroller to take to Florida with us. It was very lightweight, easy to set up and collapse with one hand. It steered great and our 8 month old was comfortable and content in this stroller. My husband is tall and did kick the wheels however he just adjusted his gait and it really wasn’t a problem. The canopy does come off easy and is not adjustable. I would recommend this stroller.

  52. Tired Mama on October 27th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I am a bit disappointed with this stroller. I’m not tall, 5’4″ to be exact, but I would prefer taller handles AND keep kicking the wheels on this stroller. We’ve ended up holding it with one hand (which makes steering hard but not impossible) and walking to the side of the stroller.

    Also, the sunshade moves nicely, but there’s no where to put it when you fold up the stroller (it doesn’t remain attached but pops right off).

    Everything else is as expected. Folds easily, good sturdy quality. 22 month old is comfortable in it.

  53. Courtie mommy to one cutie pie! on October 28th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    We bought this stroller as a secondary to our combo stroller. We primarily use it for quick in and out’s. It’s not so great for long shopping trips, as my 14 month old son can’t quite seem to get too comfy. I love that it’s so easy to store and very light weight. It’s so easy to pop together and easy to break down. The color options are great! I do wish that it came with cup holders and a bigger basket underneath. The canopy is okay, not the best. It’s easy to kick the wheels when walking.

  54. Busy mom of very active baby boy on October 28th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I bought this after struggling with the gigantic jeep stroller I received as a gift. This stroller has its good and bad points. It is light-weight, easy to fold, steers easily (even with one hand). However, it is very uncomfortable for baby. My son sits in it for five minutes then screams to get out. He never did that with the jeep stroller. The 2 point recline is a joke. The canopy is flimsy and may fall off at any time. I am returning mine today.

  55. Kristin on October 30th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Great light weight stroller. Fits compact. Comes with a travel bag which is useful while traveling. Difficult to close up if you are wearing sandals. Very convenient.

  56. Mom of Three on November 11th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    Fabulous Purchase- I recommend again and again. This stroller stores like an umbrella stroller and is loaded with many extras like the large travel system strollers. It is also durable, easy to push, and restraint safe. I will buy this stroller again (if it ever wears out).

  57. Bradys Mom on November 13th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I have traveled all over the US with the stroller. It was the best buy I have made since he was born. I love how small it is and how light it is. I replaced my big deluxe one with this because it is so much more practical. The bright red color is a hit and stands out when looking for it at the airport. The adjustable canopy rocks. No more sun in babys eyes. A super buy. Money well spent!

  58. Mother of an active 16 month boy!!! on November 16th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I wish I would have read some reviews before buying this stroller. I find that alot of the reviews I have read ( now that I went out and got the stoller) all say just about the same things. The handles are too short and you step on the wheels. Yes that is true but I find it odd that my 16 month old son is also uncomfortable in this stroller and crys when he see it because he know he is getting put into it. After about five min of sitting in it he starts wiggle and scream because he does not like to be in it. I will be returning this stroller and reading the reviews of other strollers availabe to me.

  59. Ava's Mommy on November 19th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    We never use our daughters bulky travel system stroller. This is much small and more convenient. It still has a basket below to hold items but it’s smaller and let’s your (older than 6 month) baby up perfectly. My daughter hates her other stroller but loves walks in this one. Folds up nicely, doesnt take up space. Definitely worth the money!!

  60. Soon 2B mom of 2 on November 26th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is great. No assembly – it comes out of the box ready to go. I put my 3 year old in it to test it out, and it rolls smoothly and easily. I’m 5′ 7″ and don’t have a problem with the height – it’s perfect. Would certainly recommend this!

  61. LA Mama on December 12th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is an excellent value and has me often wishing that I hadn’t wasted my money buying a full-sized one. This Chicco stroller is lightweight, easy to collapse and setup, is sturdy, and has an awesome turn-radius. The one I bought in July has survived the rough terrain of Lake Tahoe trails, daytrips to the LA Zoo, various daily errands, and is still going strong. My son is now 16 months old and weighs 24 pounds, and I never have an issue with this stroller. The underseat basket is ample for carrying light items.

    The only things that I wish were different about this stroller are: 1. That it had adjustable handles for parents of varying heights; 2. The seatback would recline more; And 3. That the wheels wouldn’t dirty the sun canopy when the stroller is folded up. If these things were remedied then I’d give this stroller 5 stars.

  62. Addy's Mom on December 13th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    It is so light weight and great for travel because it folds up and goes into a carry case. Keeps the stroller looking nice even when the airlines beat it up. The wheels move very smoothly so steering is easy!!

  63. Reagan's Mama on January 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We love this stroller. We got this in addition to our full size stroller after realizing the benefits of having a compact, lightweight stroller as an alternative for quick trips. It’s super easy to fold up! Only thing I would change if I could….would be to add adjustable height handles….my husband is tall & finds himself wishing the handles came up just a little bit highter. It’s fine for me though! Our daughter loves it! And we even used it as a make-shift high chair while traveling recently!!

  64. Jessie on January 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I like the stroller because it’s so lightweight and easy to manuver but my son hates it and fusses to get within minutes. I think he got used to the comfortable and roomy travel system stroller.

  65. Mom on the go on January 11th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Absolutely adore this stroller. Its quick and easy for fast trips, or for those shopping or theme park excursions where you don’t want or need a bulky stroller. I had a Maclaren which was triple the price, and my baby did not seem as comfortable in it. Definately great value, I am off to get a different color because I love it so much.

  66. Logan's Mommy on January 22nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller comes already put together. You just take it out of the box and unfold it. It is a lot more sturdy than a regular umbrella stroller. It has a small basket to hold the bare necessities. The handles are a pretty good height. My 4 month old son seems to really enjoy riding around in this stroller. It lets him sit up like a big boy and see everything. It also slightly reclines in case he falls asleep. It doesn’t recline very much, just enough so that his head won’t flop around. The 5 pt. harness is a perk also. The things I don’t like about the stroller are the sun shade because it hardly shades anything at all, and the fact that the wheels stick out kind of far in the back. It’s really hard not to kick them when you’re pushing the stroller. If I had the $ I probably would’ve gotten a Maclaren, however, for the price it’s a pretty good buy.

  67. Momma L on January 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have been using this stroller since my daughter was about six months and could sit up pretty well (she is now 16 months). In comparison to other lightweight and umbrella strollers, this one is much sturdier. I also like that it has handles that aren’t too short. I found with a lot of other umbrella strollers that I was sort of hunching while pushing it because the handles were lower to the ground. (I’m only 5’6″, not really tall!) The material is generally of a higher quality than others and there are strap protectors that keep them from rubbing on my daughter’s neck. All nice features!

    The only negative to this stroller is how hard the straps click together. Both my husband and I have gotten blood blisters from getting the skin between our thumb and first finger caught in the snap.

  68. Mary on the go! on February 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is great, I had started out with the Jeep stroller and it just wasn’t as sturdy as this one. This stroller came all together in the box, it’s lightweight, it has a small basket which is a neccessity, and the shade on it is great for blocking rain or sun. I would recommend this stroller to anyone looking for a lightweight, compact, stroller. My son likes riding in it!

  69. SAHM on February 16th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My mother bought this stroller for my son, who at the time was about 6 months old. A great stroller when transitioning from a travel system and especially traveling. Very light weight and easy to open and shut. Comes with a travel bag, although, I never used it except when traveling on an airplane. Worth the money. The only negative thing I have to say about this stroller (and I’m not saying it is the stroller) is that my son doesn’t like to sit in it for that long…and I totally wish that they had spot for a cup holder for mom’s on the go!

  70. Daisy Grow Kit on February 17th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Ok… so I didn’t read the reviews on this stroller before I bought it, which is very unlike me. However, I went to the store and “test drove” it before making my final decision. First of all, I tested several Maclaren lightweight strollers and while they look really nice, I literally couldn’t figure out how to unfold them after breaking them down! Not to mention they were twice the price.

    I’ve noticed that many of the reviews in which they claim baby is uncomfy the children are either too big or too small based on the age recomendations. Maybe that is part of the problem.

    We bought this for my 7 month old daughter. We wanted something smaller than the bulky stroller that came with the travel system and the Red Chicco just stood out… I love it!

    I am 5’6″ and it’s fine for me. As I said, I test drove it in the store before purchasing it… the smart thing to do when buying something you need to last several years… don’t you think? Anyway, the hight is fine, the wheels are fine… even my 6’6″ husband pushed it around for a little bit and he had no complaints! Even if he did, I don’t think ANY stroller is designed for really tall people.

    As for the basket… what do we expect to get with an unbrella stroller? Compared to the more expensive Maclaren with a smaller and less accesible basket, Chicco got it right by me! It’s perfect size and easy to get to.

    ALSO…one thing NO ONE mentioned is the fact that the sun shade locks into place as not to move in heavy wind! I love this feature! Not even my expensive full size stroller offers that! And, since the sun shade is easily removable, the hight can be adjusted by simply moving the shade up or down on the frame. The further down it is, the more sun it will block… rocket science, right?

    I recommend this stroller to anyone, but don’t blame me if you buy it and you don’t like it. That’s probably your fault for basing your decision off of my review and not your own personal needs/experience.

    Sorry to be so sarcasitc in my post. However, I just hate when people get what they ask for and then blame the manufacturer for not building the product to their individual specs.

  71. Sarah suburban mommy on February 18th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Overall, it is a good inexpensive umbrella stroller. Now having a 16 mo old son, though, I’ve become pickier in what I’m looking for. I liked that it is so lightweight and easy to stow. However my husband and I constantly kick the wheels with our stride and wish the handles were taller and that we didn’t have to hunch over. Also, I wish the basket held anything. It can’t hold much more than a few diapers or toys.

    And the worst part, is I have got my own fingers pinched trying to buckle/unbuckle on too many outings. Ouch! In need a new latch system.

  72. Ashley on February 20th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We LOVED this stroller! It is lightweight and compact like an umbrella stroller, yet sturdy and easy to push (tall handles) like a full sized stroller. After having this stroller only a few months, it fell out of the back of our SUV when the lift gate opened–both of the plastic handles snapped off at the same time! We called CHICCO customer service to request new handles but were told that the handles cannot be replaced because they are riveted on during manufacturing. They also explained that they would not warranty the stroller because it was our fault the stroller had fallen. Great stroller overall, but very disappointed in the handle quality, and more importantly, CHICCO’s customer service!

  73. Theresa parent of two boys! on February 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I use this product almost every day and my 17 month old son loves it to pieces. No more arguements about sitting in shopping carts he sits in his stroller without any arguements at all. I love everything about the stroller. If I could change anything it would be to make the basket a little bit bigger. It is kind of hard to get things in and out of. Other than that this is a great product and very durable.

  74. James' mommy on March 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is the best. It folds up easily with one foot and weighs practically nothing. It is so easy to steer and turn. Well worth the money!!!!!

  75. OntheGo on March 11th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have used this product for five months with my son. I dread using it…. It is small and compact for easier movement through stores but hard to push, feet hit the wheels with my stride (5’7) and I am bent over, handle not comfortable, no storage. My son is fine in it, but I don’t enjoy whacking my feet into the wheels. It is hard to push with one hand and difficult to steer. Overall, I would rather get a koala baby [$] stroller for cheap/quick uses.

  76. Corbin's Mom on March 16th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I really love this stroller. I have a jogging stroller, but it is way too big for indoor use. This stroller is light weight, sturdy, and easy to take anywhere. It is great for trips to the mall! The wheels are large enough that they easily roll over bumps, unlike cheaper umbrella strollers with smaller wheels. The handles are a great height and don’t rub blisters on my hands. The stroller is also balanced enough that if my purse is on the handle, it doesn’t fall over when my son gets out. My only complaint is that the storage basket on the bottom can only be used for soft things like blankets. Forget about putting your purse or sippy cups down there; there just isn’t enough space. Uverall, this stroller looks great, functions well, and my son loves it!

  77. Kim on March 17th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. Before this one I had one of the cheap umbrella strollers. I was always kicking the wheels. (I’m 5’2″) and the handles were not long enough. But I didn’t want to take up all of the space in my car with my big stroller. So I bought this one. And I love it. It’s small enough to keep in my car all of the time. So it’s actually on hand when I need it. But the wheels are big enough to handle the rougher terain. I added an aftermarket clip-on cup holder and since then it’s just as useful as my big stroller.

  78. First time mother on March 18th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Awesome lightweight stroller. My son just loves it. Very easy to assemble. Kinda hard to disassemble, but not too bad. The only drawback is the fact that it does not have a cup holder…but otherwise, everything is great.

  79. First time mom on March 29th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We bought this stroller for a trip to Kauai. It’s great! Easy to collapse and our 5 month old daughter seemed comfortable in it. It could use more shade, but we just tied a string to the velcro strap that holds the shade in place so we could move it down when needed. With regards to other comments about kicking the wheels…I’m 5’9″ and my husband is 6’4″ and neither of us kicked the wheels.

  80. mom of 3 on March 29th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller because i had a small sport car at the time and no other stroller would feet in the trank. I end up loving it, it so practical, easy to fold, wonderfull to push.
    i like it much better than my evenflo (gave it away) and that my pegperego good stroller more padded but more difficult to use.

  81. Liz on March 31st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I am of pretty average height. I’m only 5’5. But this stroller seems to have been designed with much shorter people in mind! I feel like I have to bend over just to push it. Also, the back wheels are so close together that when I walk, my feet hit the wheels. So not only am I bending over, but I am also having to take baby steps. It’s not easy to control either. It definitely takes both hands.

  82. Suzanne, mommy of 11 month old daughter on April 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We started using this stroller when our daughter was 6 months old. It is very easy to push, and the handles are just right for me (5’10”) and my husband (6’5″). We have taken this stroller through the mall, as well as grass and gravel, and have had no problems. It is very easy to fold and unfold. My only complaints are the removable cupholder is not sturdy, and I wish there was more basket space. It is hard to find this type of stroller with adequate basket space. Other than that, I would give it a 10!

  83. first time mom on April 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I had liked the looks of this stroller being a first time mom I really had no clue about the strollers so I put this in my baby registry and got it as a baby shower gift. Didn’t use it atall till my daughter was 10months old. I have Chico cortina travel system so was using that till then. it has no plus points except that it is light weight but i would expect any leight weight stroller to be leight in weight.
    It uses a zipper to recline ……BIZZARE..
    My daughter is very uncomfortable in it. she slides down for some reason I have to constantly correct her position.
    there is no support for back
    canopy is a joke dosen’t protect from sun atall
    cannot fold this stroller with the canopy attached.
    has no parent cup tray or child cup tray.
    storage basket is not atall usefull you cannot put even a small diaper bag.
    the latch to close is weird you cannot close the stroller with your foot. you have to bend down to open the latch
    think twice before buying it. I wish i had waited for my daughter to be born and not have put it in my refistry. I have only used it twice and going to buy a new one this weekned for her
    I would advice not to buy any stroller based on looks and reviews take your child to the stire have them sit in it and use it a lil bit in the store before buying.

  84. Avas Mom on April 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this after reading pretty good reviews, i even tried it at the store and it seemed fine to me. Well we bought it took it to the grocery store today and i constantly was kicking the wheels!!!!!!! I read others complain about that too. Im 5’11” so i dont know maybe if your shorter its ok but im returning this asap. I was just looking for a lightweight stroller as my daughter is now 16 mos. Shes very tall though so she fit ok in it but even with the straps on she could almost stand up in it. I didnt like it at all!

  85. mellie mom on April 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    At first it was a dream come true until 6 months later the wheel snapped off at the alluminum rod (which I believed would be durable). The five point harness perfect for the escapist. Could’ve used a cup holder but it was sogreat I went without. Great stroller. Flimsy structure.

  86. Ali on April 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I got this when I got a really cool coupon in the mail for $10. There’s really no since in having the basket, nothing fits under there, my daughter really enjoys this stroller, and it is heaven to use in stores and very easy. Some people complain about kicking the wheels, but I haven’t had a problem. And I was always able to close it with the canopy on. Really what more could you expect from a [$] stroller.

  87. RBMom on April 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have a big jogging stroller that I love, but I needed a lightweight stroller for traveling and quick car trips. I read great reviews on this stroller-so I went ahead and bought it.Basically, I am very disappointed. The stroller is very hard to close, the reclined position is a joke, and it pushes very poorly. I feel the wheels keep pulling me to one side and then the other. Also, the latch to keep the stroller closed is very hard to use. I usually put it in the trunk without locking it.I thought that for [$] I would be getting a lot more than the cheap umbrella strollers, but I was wrong. Maybe my expectations were too high. The one positive is that the hood is a lot better than on many other lightweight strollers.This stroller was not worth the cost.

  88. Nicole 1st time Mom, I reveiw EVERTHING! on April 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I read some reviews about this stroller and decided to go try it out in the store myself. In-store everything was okay but the first time I used this stroller I was disappointed. Although the height was perfect for me (I’m only 4’11) I wouldn’t reccommend this for tall people. The basket at the bottom is only big enough to hold loose items such as a couple of diapers, wipes, bottle its not nearly big enough to hold a diaper bag. There is no parent cup holder and no snack tray. You have to bend down and pull lever to fold, cannot use foot. The recline is determined by a ZIPPER. The canopy is USELESS it does not block ANY sunlight and it doesn’t fully attach to stroller. The only good thing is this comes with the shoulder straps which is a plus. But other than that I will be back to the store to find a better stroller!

  89. Toddler mom on April 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller for an upcoming trip so we don’t have to lug our full size stroller through the airport and around town. I like that it’s so light weight and comes with a carrying strap and bag.

    It was fairly easy to set up, the only thing I had to do was attach the canopy, and it just took a few minutes to figure out where on the frame to attach it. My son is 2 1/2 and about 34 lbs and he fits in it comfortably. I took him for a spin around the house and he didn’t want to get out! Then I had my husband take it for a test drive. I cautioned him about kicking the wheels since he’s 6 ft tall, but he didn’t have any complaints. It manuevered well throughout the house and when I tested it at the store.

    The storage compartment is small, but it’s what I expected with this type of stroller and price range. The harness system keeps my active boy in place. And I found it very easy to unlock with my foot by simply following the instructions of pulling out and lifting up. We are pleased with the purchase.

  90. mom on April 15th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller to use as an everyday lightweight, easy to use stroller. It is lightweight and easy to use, but its not very well made. I am only 5’2″ and I am always kicking the wheels. My husband is 6’2″ and its not comfortable for him at all. I’ve only had this stroller for a few months and when I was taking it out of my trunk, I accidently dropped it. The leg of the stroller broke off. It wasn’t a hard fall…or so I thought, but the metal leg snapped. I’m kind of glad to see it go, but I’m not happy that I wasted [$] for it. Lesson learned!

  91. Lizzrd on April 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I can’t believe some of these reviews! I tell everyone how great this stroller is! WOW! I am 5’9 and have no problem kicking the wheels. It’s super easy to get in & out of the car. It’s lightweight. I’ve used it since my son was 6 months old & he is now 10 months. We use it on a daily basis. Heck, I don’t even think the basket is that small – my diaper bag doesn’t fit in there but I toss in a few diapers, wipes, snacks, sippy cup & away we go! I put my keys & cell phone in the back zipper pocket. Works like a charm!

  92. Dan on April 21st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    squeaky wheels, both my wife an I kick the wheels with every step, hard to close…. not a good stroller.

  93. mommy of 1 on April 22nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller a month or two ago because the full sized one takes way too much space in my small trunk. I really havent had any issues. Its light weight, easy to fold up. I do occasionally kick the wheels. The basket is good to toss a few things in but its an umbrella stroller they arent made to store lots of stuff. I usually just pop the diaper bag on the handles. I wish it had a cup holder but I plan on just getting a cheep attachable one. I have no real issues with this its an umbrella stroller and does the job just fine.

  94. College Mom on April 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this for my 21 month old son since the large stroller was too much work and too heavy for quick trips. For the low price, this was truely a great value for us! It’s comfy enough for my son to fall asleep in, and easy to pop up and down fast. For longer trips we’ll stick to our full size stroller, but for shopping trips to the mall and walks around the park, this will do just fine. The storage bag with the shoulder strap is a lifesaver!

  95. kaylee's mommy on May 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a great lightweight stroller. It folds up easily. It also has a carry case and strap for easy carrying. Also, my husband is 6’6” and has no problem pushing it. It also has a 5 point harness for the little ones that like to move!

  96. Rachel on May 5th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I ended up returning this after reading the comments about kicking the wheels. We went to BRU and tried it and, sure enough, I kicked the wheels. Bought a Combi instead.

  97. Rach on May 8th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is great for on the go moms (or dads). I keep mine in my car and use it often. My son is only 6 wks, but can sit in it very well. It has duel positions which make it ideal for young or naping babies.

  98. Superhero Mama on May 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this because my son didn’t really need his travel stroller when we went to the mall or a walk. It’s light and easy to open and close. I just wish that it was a little heavier because if you hang any sacks on the handles it could topple backwards, even with a child strapped in! Also, I frequently hit the wheels when pushing it, and the arms aren’t really long enough so you’re hunched over a little. I don’t use it all the time, but it works for something that is quick and convenient.

  99. JP's mom on May 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    my baby is 2mnths old, it was very easy to set up
    can’t wait to use it going to the park today

  100. TJ on May 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My husband and I both kick the wheels. You can’t open the release with your foot, you have to bend down. If the sunshade is on, the stroller doesn’t close completely. Once folded up, the latching mechanism is difficult to use, if it works at all. When using the brakes, the plastic part breaks easily. The storage basket is extremely small.

  101. mom3x on May 16th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is light, easy to use, and durable. I use it for my 6 month old as well as my 4 year old. The only downside is you can’t store very much in the basket when the seat is reclined, other than that it has been great. We have used it for over a year now and plan on taking it on vacation.

  102. Mom on the go on May 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We recently bought this stroller and have been very pleased. It is an upgrade from a normal umbrella stroller and is great to use on quick trips. I would not suggest this stoller for long walks as it does not ride as nicely as the carseat/stroller combo we also have. Great for the money!

  103. Mother of 2 on May 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I hated this stroller so much I returned it. By looks I thought it might be on par with our old Maclaren but it could not have been further. I am short and kicked the wheels constantly. I always had to bend down and use my hands to break it down, and then once collapsed, it would never click shut, so if I picked it up with only one hand it just openned back up again. I could never get the sunshade on and I missed the little storage pocket for cell phones and keys in the Maclaren. All in all, I thought that while this one was cute in appearence, it’s function was awful.

  104. Mama2coryandchase on May 22nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I thought it looked good for the price. My problem is it needs more features. The handles are hard to manuever with one hand and it needs at least one cup holder. It got dirty fast and marks really showed up on the red color.

  105. Jillian on May 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. It is so easy to set up and fits perect in my Trailblazer. Very light weight and turns easily. Storage bin underneath is nice, for small things, since it is an umbrella stroller. It is not intended to hold everyday demands like a travel stroller. Perfect for a short getaway.

  106. Busy mama on May 29th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Folds easy, has the 5 point harness to keep them in place, has a great little bag to keep it clean in the back of the SUV. We use it for basball games, quick walks & when we need more than one stroller for when our 5 year old needs one too (for lots and lots of walking). We feel it ws very worth the $$$!!

  107. Happy Mom of one on May 31st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I liked how easily it folded, but kept kicking the wheels when using it, became very annoying. The handles need to turn the opposite direction and it would have been perfect.

  108. Mom on the go ! on June 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love how light the stroller is, it folds up nice and tight. I’m not sure why it comes with a bag. Who puts thier stroller in a bag. I’m 57′ and my husbands 58′ We’ve had the stroller for a year now and we hav’nt had any probles. I’m really glad I spent a little more than I had planed that day.

  109. Sofia's Mommy on June 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We bought this as we love to travel and our 7 month old is outgrowing her infant seat… She loves this stroller and it is also very comfortable to push for Mom and Dad! I have it in “Pacific” and just love the light weight frame and the harness is great for the younger babies! I do wish the handles were adjustable (like on the chicco cortina travel system), but still a great stroller!

  110. Gisela the pregnant mom on June 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I really like this stroller i bought when my now 2 year old daughter was around 6 months and i think is the lightest, cutiest, and very easy to assemble stroller that i bought. I really like it, and i would recommend to anyone.

  111. Kerry on June 18th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I got this stroller because I really liked the look of it. I found it very difficult to fold up and once folded the latch to keep it closed wouldn’t click in place.

  112. 1st time mom on June 20th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller!!! I looked online at all the reviews and chose this one. It is easy to steer, lightweight and many more. I do wish they came in more colors.

  113. RocsMom on June 30th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Very nice – I like how it looks, it folds up easily and rolls great. Wish it had longer handles, but you are not going to get that in an umbrella stroller. Love that it has the net in the bottom for “stuff”. Would buy this again.

  114. Bangor Dad on July 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I was in search of a lightweight stroller, when I came across this one. I have had this stroller for just under six months, and I am unimpressed. The first problem I have with this stroller, it cannot be used one-handed with out assistance from a foot to guide it. This is a major issue for me, I never thought a manufacturer would build a stroller that had to be used with both hands.The second issue, it performs poorly on sidewalks and other non-smooth surfaces. The design forces your energy down, instead of forward, which means you will either change how you walk, or waste a lot of effort pushing it. Both of these problems reduce this stroller to a [$] umbrella stroller, with a fancy name and color.

  115. dianne on July 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller was ready to use right out of the box. It is so cute. Very comfortable for my baby who is 6 months old. I test drove other stollers, and this one wins hands down. It is very sturdy, unlike the maclarens I test drove. The material is great too, my daughter doesnt get all sweaty on her head and back like the other strollers. The canopy is nice and can be adjusted. If you need more coverage, just attach it lower on the frame and it works fine. I do recommend this one. I think we will be using this one for a long time.

  116. FL Gator in Western NY on July 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is great for travel. It takes up very little room in a trunk, is VERY lightweight, and is very easy to use. I have flown four times with this stroller and it has held up perfectly. It even spot cleans easily! My daughter is always very comfortable when riding in it. Very good value for money.

  117. a very picky consumer on July 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Love this stoller. We have it in the sydney blue and it is a great color for a little baby boy, mine looks so handsome in it. It is so nice and light, a good break from my heavy travel system. My son is 9 months old and is so comfortable in it, he is usually asleep within 5 minutes of strolling. The recline is much better than alot of the buyers said. You have to unsnap the buttons and then unzip the sides. The sunshade is great because you can place it low on the frame to block out the sun and it goes forward and backward depending on what you need. It doesnt have a peekaboo window, but what I do is leave the back of the hood unsnapped and peeled up and you can see your baby well. The coverage is actually better than that on my big graco quattro, I was really impressed. Of course this stroller doesnt have the extras like the cupholders and front bar and big basket, but I was willing to not have them to get a sturdy and easy to lift and use stroller and thats exactly what we have. I am very happy with this purchase.

  118. momof2boys on July 11th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is an excellent lightweight stroller. I do extensive research when purchasing baby items because I dont want to waste money on unnecassary items. I was in need of an umbrella stroller but wanted something more sturdier that reclines. THIS WAS IT. nothing bad to say. the canopy is perfect size, it reclines easily and the baby loves it. he is 15 months old. I t comes assembled in box. NO TOOLS REQUIRED!

  119. jen on July 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    i’ve had this stroller for 2 years, and it still looks brand new. everywhere i go people always ask where did i get it. i keep it in my trunk, its light easy to travel with and comfortable for my 4 year old. i love it!
    oh the clip on the side when you fold it down is hard to clip but thats it.

  120. Mama Mama on July 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. It is so light, has a storage basket, pre-padded strapd, folds easy, and steers like a dream. I bought a cup holder and it attached so easy. The recline feartue is great.!!!!! So happy. AND it has a storage bag so it doesn’t get all dinged up.

  121. Mick on July 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We received the stroller on baby shower. It appears to be solid while perfect for quick fold while traveling.
    When we started using it our daughter loved it. However, it is not as comfortable for us as it is for her. The handles are positioned in somewhat strange position, they should be turned 90degrees inside for natural grip. Both my wife (5.5) and I (6.4) are kicking the wheels. Additionally the handles are too short for me and I have constantly lean foreword. They should be 2-3 inches higher.
    We like the overall quality but it is not made for normal size parents to push it.

  122. Betsy Too Tall on July 20th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I was very excited about purchasing this stroller. It is very lightweight and folds up so nicely. I get lots of comments on it. The reason for only 3 stars is this: If you are at all tall, then you are going to be kicking the wheels off this thing. I’m 5’9″ and can’t walk without stepping all over the wheels. Imagine the problem my 6″2″ father had! I’ve given up and walk beside it and push with one hand, not very convenient! Be sure you test this in the store!! I’m taking mine back and finding one with adjustable handles to solve this problem!

  123. Megan on July 22nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We bought this stroller with my son, because it was very exhausting hauling the peg perego around all the time. We wanted a nice umbrella stroller that would last but not cost one hundred dollars. This stroller is so easy to fold and so light to carry. I have carried it on many occasions, and it isnt light as a feather, but it wont break your back either. It is a great stroller to keep in the trunk. We love it so much we have another to keep at the grandparents house. This stroller is a great buy and will last a long time. The only downside to it would be that it is great for short people. My husband and I are around 5’5 and we reach the handles easily. But if you are over 6 foot you may have a problem.

  124. Savanna's Mom on July 29th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller! I was looking for something better than an umbrella stroller and smaller than our travel system – this was the perfect buy. This stroller was highly recommended to me by several coworkers that have used it for travelling, etc. It collapses down really small (much better than the travel system in my honda civic trunk!) and is really lightweight to carry. The shoulder strap and bag are nice features. We took it to a Cleveland Indians game and had no problem maneuvering around the ballpark with it. Our 7 month old has been on many walks in it, taken naps in it, and has always been comfortable. I like the child restraints (straps) on this better than my Graco travel system – much easier to use. The height of the handles is fine for me (5’2) and my husband (6′) has no complaints about the height – he said its much better than the umbrella stroller we had. The basket underneath is small but good enough to throw a blanket in. I am thrilled with the portability and quality of this stroller!

  125. Jules on July 29th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We got this product for our son and used it for the first time when he was 5 months. I loved the look of the stroller and it seemed to work well however my husband and I are both tall and to use the stroller we had to hunch over. We also constantly kicked the wheels. I would reccomend another stroller if you’re tall. We also have the Chicco Cortina travel system and didn’t have these problems with it.

  126. Stacey, mom of 4 on August 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We have a full size stroller, but needed one for a plane trip. I bought this a few weeks before we left and find myself using it more than the full size. I love that it reclines, has full canopy, and the leg rest adjusts. Our son is 11 months old and he can sleep better in this then our Graco full size stroller we paid a LOT more for.

  127. Cheryl on August 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My favorite thing about this stroller is that it’s easy to use- so lightweight! It’s great for short mall trips. However, I’m not that tall (5’5), and I feel like I hunch over when I use it. If you’re tall, I’d definitely recommend a different stroller.

  128. Kristen, Mother of 2 crazy Boys on August 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I’m 5’8″ and LOVE this stroller. Perfect height for me !
    Let’s face it, you’re not buying this stroller because it’s big & bulky and has ton’s of room in it to store everything under the sun. This stroller is more for an older baby who needs a sippy cup and a small diaper bag ! Perfect for us, I have an older son who can also lay down in it, this does recline !
    It folds very small and is so portable with a strap that you can sling over your shoulder and it has a bag/cover that you can put the whole thing in and also attach the strap to the bag/cover to carry it that way!
    My hubby looked it up online last night and there are accessories that you can buy to go with this stroller.
    I bought this stroller because my girlfriend had it, and it’s already gone through her 2 kids and is still “strolling”.
    Highly reccommend it.

  129. Lovin Red on August 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is great. It is light, reclines, and has a storage basket. I love the red and my little one does as well.

  130. me and mom on August 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. It is light and a great color. I love the storage basket and how easy it is to fold. Great all around.

  131. busy bee on August 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Love this stroller. Gerat color and easy to use.

  132. Mother for the 2nd time around on August 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My son is now 21 months and I have been using my Chicco Cortina Sahara stoller since he was born and I love it! (I had received the travel system as a baby shower gift). The Cortina is great, its a big stroller however its pretty light for a full sized stroller. I did need something smaller for shopping outlets, festivals, amusement park outings, my 7 yrs old son’s sporting events, etc so I did my research on umbrella strollers and I kept reading on how reliable the Capri was. I wanted a smaller stroller but still handled for the most part like a full sized stoller. I bought the Chicco Capri in black yesterday and used it last evening at a festival. My son loved riding in it, I am 5’7″ and had no issues with kicking the wheels. The stroller is compact yet sturdy. I also like that it is already assembled in the box and all I had to do was attach the hood. There is no cup holder so I purchased a stroller diaper bag right from babies r us for $14.99 which holds a drink, a couple of diapers, travel sized wipes and room for keys, cameras or small snacks for the little one. Their is also a small basket on the bottom of the stroller. If you are looking for a small, sturdy and fashionable stroller without paying the price of a Maclaren than this stroller is for you.

  133. STEFANI on August 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller because i travel to alot of farmers markets and craft shows with my 18 mo old son so space is tight. we previously had one of those cheap umbrella strollers but it was so narrow and uncomfortable he wouldnt ride in it. I thought this one was a little pricey but i went for it and i absolutly love it. it is good quality, lots of options, and good looking. The only thing is i cant figure out where the snaps on the canopy go.

  134. Stay at home mom on August 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I keep it in my trunk for errands and when we go shopping but it’s very flimsy, definetly not worth the money!! No room underneath in the basket either and no cup holders. And hardly reclines at all!

  135. Lovin Chicco on August 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. The color is great. This stroller is sturdy and rugged. Love the basket and recine feature.

  136. Mama of 2 crazy boys on August 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I mainly carry my kids on my back or front in various baby carriers but this stroller met nearly all my needs/requirements and we really learned to love it! The one little complaint I have was not being able to remove the cover to wash it. Mine was in the trunk of our car that was involved in a flood and everything in the car was trashed and had to be thrown away due to mold….I’m sad but going back to BRU to buy another!

  137. HAPPY TO BE MAMA on August 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I am more then happy that myhusband and I got this stroller. It is so light and easy to more around with, great color, reclines, and has storage. I love it.

  138. Chloe's Mommy on August 16th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller gets great reviews so when we needed a more compact stroller we went right for the Chicco.
    I noticed a lot of reviews said that if you are tall your feet will hit the wheels when you walk. I figured I’m 5’2 so it wouldn’t be a problem. Well, I’m glad I tried it out in the store because my feet did hit the wheels when I walked and it was bothersome.

    This stroller could be great for you, but I always advise people to try it out in the store first before buying to make sure it is the right fit for them.

    We ended up getting the Bellisimo in pink camo instead. With slighly more weight it still folds compactly and has more padding and a higher weight limit.

    Good luck in your search for the perfect stroller for you! 🙂

  139. New Mom on August 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. Very light yet sturdy. Great color. Love how it has a srorage bag and how it reclines.

  140. Mother of two on August 20th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I loved this stroller because it is so lightweight and was perfect for short errands; however, my son hated it. It provides very little support for your child’s back and so my son would slump down. I reluctantly returned it and bought a sturdier and heavier stroller. I see a lot of parents use this stroller and their children do not seem to have any problems. I think it all depends upon your child. I hope it works for you!

  141. BUSY MAMA on August 21st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Love this stroller. Light and has storage. Love the recline and the storage bag it comes with.

  142. Lanies Mom on August 25th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My feet hit the wheels when I walk. The baby hates it because there is no back support and shes all slumped over. The canopy basically provides no shade. The screws started falling out after one use. I have several other Chicco products that I love but this was a waste of money.

  143. New Mom on August 25th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Love this stroller. It is so light yet sturdy. It reclines and has a storage basket. Grate Seat.

  144. Stella's Mom on August 30th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Went to Babies r Us today with full intentions of purchasing the McClaren Volo for my one year old as her Combi Flare has been disappointing. (I love the small size and compatibility with infant seat but the wheels dont turn well and steering and storage are a joke.)
    We tried out several stollers and this Chicco was the most impressive for the price. After reading so many great McClaren reviews I guess I was expecting a miracle stroller. It handled ok but I thought this Chicco handled better. And my daughter didnt seem that comfortable in Volo and I didnt care for how low to the ground she seemed to sit. Maybe if she was older/bigger it would be a better fit.
    This Chicco model was easy to steer with even one hand and the basket is quite large for an umbrella stroller. (Larger than McClaren) Also, I like that it has zippers to recline instead of a pull system and the shade though oddly shaped can pull all the way down over babies face to shield from wind if need be. The shade snaps off/on so simply I just remove it to put it in the car and the stoller is easy to fold/unfold also.
    Most importantly my daughter seemed comfy while her Grandpapa pushed her in this stoller for over an hour while I got a hair cut. Maybe I will have to purchase a McClaren if she outgrows this Chicco but so far, so good!
    Ps The model I bought is solid black which I really like. Didnt see that offered online however.

  145. busy californian on August 31st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I WOULD NOT PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT AGAIN NOR WOULD I RECOMMEND IT TO A FRIEND. THE HANDLES SIT TO LOW, MY FEET HIT THE WHEELS AS I PUSH IT, THERE IS VERY LITTLE ROOM UNDERNEATH AND THERE ARE NO CUP HOLDERS. I NEVER REALIZED HOW MUCH OF A NECESSITY CUP HOLDERS ARE UNTIL THEY WERE NOT AVAILABLE. PROVIDES LITTLE SHADE, DOES NOT RECLINE. TRY SOMETHING ELSE.

  146. Beth on September 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller for our trip to Vegas for a family member’s wedding. The stroller was PERFECT for the trip. We didn’t have any trouble at all with kicking the tires as we walked. (I am 5′ 7″ and my husband is 5′ 8″.) It folds up great and unfolds with one hand and a foot to lock. My only complaint is we had a difficult time getting it into the storage bag. I tried for several minutes while they called our flight to stuff it into the bag and couldn’t seem to get it in there correctly. I even tried again when we got home, and still can’t seem to figure it out. My only guess is perhaps it doesn’t fit as well with the canopy, as I was able to get it into the bag without any problem (and while chatting on the phone) the day the stroller arrived before the canopy was on. But it was GREAT for getting around Vegas, even on all the escalators. This was my 10 month old daughter’s first plane ride vacation and the stroller made it great. She even took several naps in it. I would also recommend a diaper bag that attaches to the handles, as the cargo space is big enough for a blanket and water bottle, but would not be big enough for an all day cruise around town.

  147. Jess the Mom of 2 kids on September 2nd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I really enjoyed this stroller. I bought it because my 10 month old daughter didn’t like her other “cheaper” umbrella stroller. This had the back support. Was easy to move and fold up and store. Very light weight. We used it at the airport, which was great. Only bad thing is I am only 5’2″ and I would kick the wheels occasionally. Sadly, this stroller was lost while we were traveling. But I will definitely buy another one!

  148. Carrie on September 3rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We bought this stroller a year ago to go on a vacation because our travel system stroller was just too bulky. We fell in love with this stroller instantly. It has bigger wheels, so it is easy to push, the handles are taller so you don’t have to hunch over to push it. The basket is nice for storage and the shade keeps him covered. He is now 2 1/2 and 35 lbs and he still uses this stroller all the time.

  149. love my baby on September 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    i love this stroller. it is so light and i LOVE how it has a storage bag so it doest get all dinged up when traveling. love it better then the mcclar.

  150. ON The Go! on September 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love the fact that is so light and has a storage basket yet it is so sturdy! The recline is great!

  151. Momof5 on September 19th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller has been one of the BEST baby buys I’ve ever made!
    I’ve been using this stroller since my son was 6 months old. He is now getting ready to turn 2 and we still use it almost daily. It’s been the best stroller for us. I use this stroller everywhere – stores, doctor’s offices, the kids’ school, outdoors over grassy terrain. I love that it does not take up much space in the back of my van and it’s very easy to get in and out. It has held up fairly well except the footrest strap just recently broke but that was because my 10 year old was kneeling on it. The seat belt is great although my son can wiggle out of the chest straps he CANNOT get out of the waist belt. The two position zipper recline is great for naps. The canopy is nice and big and covers well. The basket underneath is a little small but it’s held everything I’ve ever needed it to. Every now and then I find myself wishing it had a cup holder. Also it is very hard (almost impossible)to steer one-handed. Other than that it’s pretty close to being perfect.

  152. Nurse Jacquie O. on September 25th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is lightweight and easy to use. I did not want a stroller that was big and bulky and this was a good fit for us. My husband is tall and his feet hit the wheels, but he hardly ever uses it. It’s also easy to hose down if it gets dirty in the park.

  153. Owen's mommy on September 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    My husband and I took this stroller on vacation with us and used it for the first time. It was easy to saet up, light weight, and our son was very comfortable in it. I liked that this striller would hold up to 60 pounds and has a nice size basket to hold things. Many other lightweight strollers do not have storage. Great product!

  154. Janet disappointed on September 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller was a waste of money. Once my daughter sat in it the basket below became useless, it’s entirely to small. After only 2 weeks of use the front right side wheels bent outward. […]

  155. Detroit Mama on September 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller had so much promise. I spent (it seemed) forever in the store trying to decide which one to pick. First off, if you want to be able to adjust how your child is positioned in the stroller, keep in mind that this one only offers one choice. Also, my son is very tall for his age and very long-waisted, so putting him in this stroller made him kind of scrunch down and slump. It looked really uncomfortable. I used it once and took it back to the store.

  156. Happy with my purchase on September 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is great, lightweight, easy to take along anywhere. Easy to push and comfortable. Cleans up well when dirty. I purchased this stroller a little over a year ago and the foot rest broke. I contacted Chicco and the fixed my problem within a week. They had great customer service and are willing to do whatever to keep the consumer happy with their product.

  157. Adri, mom of two on November 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    The good part about this stroller is that it folds up and opens very easily. It takes up very little space in the trunk and it’s very light. However, it has no cup holder, the basket is a bit too small and it doesn’t recline much for a sleeping toddler.

  158. Busy Mom in SoCal on November 21st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Not good for tall children, my son’s head is scrunched under the canopy at 15 months old. Canopy offers little shade over childs face. Not a one-handed collapse effort. Basket below is useless, hard to put anything in once child is seated in stroller. Does not recline but 1 inch from upright position.

  159. DISAPPOINTED & DIS-SATISFIED CUSTOMER on November 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This product is a total waste of money. The stroller is uncomfortable, has no protection from the sun, the wheels do not move properly, and worse of all the strap buckle is a pinching hazard. While buckling the strap my son placed his hands in the way and the strap cut his finger. Before that, I accidently cut my finger on the strap also. The stroller is overpriced and really isn’t worth the money spent on it. You are better off buying a less expensive stroller. It has no cup holder. I am five foot six inches and have to bend down in order to push the carriage. I have a Chicco travel system and thought this stroller would be well made like the travel system, but it definitely isn’t. Chicco spent little to no money in the design and products to make this stroller. Please do not waste your money purchasing it!!!!

  160. Mom of two on the go on December 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We went ahead and spent a little extra on a light weight stroller, boy am I glad we did! This has been a lifesaver for quick in and out trips, we really love the 5-point harness. The $20 ones didn’t have that and our little guy was trying to get out of it. With this one he is happy and secured.

  161. Mom on December 15th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We have taken this stroller to Scotland, England, Spain, and France as well as all over TX. It has held up as no other stroller would have. It performs perfectly with my 21 mth old and works with my 4 year old (though is much harder to handle with my 6 year old). It has handled smooth and rough terrain. It is easier for me to push than my husband since I am shorter because like all umbrella strollers the wheels are closer together than the larger strollers and your feet can hit them if you have a long or wide stride. The handles are longer than a lot of strollers and I don’t have to bend at all to push it. Yes it doesn’t have a huge basket or cup holders, but it is an umbrella stroller and its small size is one of its pluses. I added a cup holder for $10 and loop a bag or even a backpack on the handles if I need to. The only con I can come up with is the visor is pretty scroungy looking now because the wheels touch it when it is folded.

  162. Light Stroller on December 18th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    It’s a light stroller, very easy to open and close. I bought it because I was travelling. But now I take it every where. Only bad thing about it is too light you can steer it very fast.

  163. jenAnne00 on December 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is just ‘okay’. Not good for a Chicco product. I love their other stuff. It feels a little cheap to me. I’m also 5’7″ and I feel like I’m reaching for the handles. I also kick the wheels a lot. It doesn’t recline too far and I miss the drink holder. It works though. Easy to fold and store away. I like the shoulder straps since my son is 4 months old and he likes to lean forward a lot (he’s a big baby and fits well).

  164. L the new mom on January 20th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Great value. Sturdy – been on numerous flights (checked at the gate, but still impressively sturdy). Wish a pocket, place for a bottle/cell phone/keys were located at the back of the seat under the handles. Very simple to open & fold back up.

  165. auzigal on January 22nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have a 2 year old son in a spica cast, from armpits to ankles in a reclined sitting position. He couldnt fit in his regular stroller and we got this hoping it would work….It has been fantastic and has really taken a beating, he sits in it to eat, play, everything as well as getting out and about. It is easy to steer even with the added weight of the cast and he is content sitting in it….no complaints in a month now. He does up the buckle himself and it is no more of a pinching hazard than any other buckle in a 5 point harness! It easy to put up and down, and light enough for me to carry downstairs and out to the car every time we go out while carrying all the other bags! I would recommend it to anyone whose kids are stuck in these casts!

    We use this stroller for everyday use. The mall, grocery store, park, etc.
    It’s lightweight, portable and can even be strapped onto my shoulder when my 2.5 old refuses to be pushed in the stroller. I’ve tested many strollers before and we own several, and for the money, this stroller is a great value. It has a generous canopy for shade protection, mid size basket and maneuvers easily. We are so happy with this product and even buy this stroller as gifts to people with toddlers.

    This stroller is not any better than the cheap umbrella strollers. The basket is hard to get to, the handles are not comfortable to hold and the weight limit is only 37 pounds. Wouldn’t recommend this stroller!

    I wouldn’t recommend this stroller for taller people. I’m 5’7 and my husband is over 6’4. We struggled to push this stroller as our arms were bent at uncomfortable angles. I registered for it because I had seen it in so many places and it looked like people liked it. We got it and kept kicking the wheels and could hardly push it. If you or your husband are tall, I would strongly recommend trying it out in the store before even registering for it. We registered, tried it out at home when my daughter was big enough (she was premature), found out we didn’t like it and were unable to return it. So with that in mind, I would strongly suggest trying this out in the store beforehand. Compare it to other strollers and you can see the height difference in the handles.

    Pros: Easy to fold, storage bag is awesome for protecting on airplanes, lightweight.

    Cons: Have to use both hand to move, Chicco label irritated and scratched my son’s head, the handles are too short for anyone over 5’3″, stroller is long and doesn’t fit well in a trunk.

    This was a last minute purchase for a trip, it was okay on the trip, but we returned it. My biggest issue is that the handles are short (and I’m 5’4″) and the canopy doesn’t provide ANY shade.

  170. Mamazod on March 20th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love the simplicity of this stoller. My two year old lived in it evertime we traveled. I joke that all her baby pics have a red background because being the youngest of three, she was in it everytime we went out! I am passing it down to my sister who travels a lot as this is the perfect travel stroller.

  171. Andrew's mom on March 22nd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. I have been using this stroller along time. I previously had this stroller in yellow, but it got very dirty and I got the red one. My son loved this stroller. It travels great. We go to Disneyland all the time and I always take this stroller. I have never had a problem with this stroller.
    I just wish the stroller had a bigger storage area underneath.

  172. First time mom on March 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    this product is overpriced, i thought it would good as Chicco Cortina stroller that we own but it isn’t. The canopy doesn’t protect from the sun, if I push it forward to protect my son’s face from direct sunlight on his face it keeps falling down on his knees therefore beeing completely useless. Also the wheels keep touching the canopy when the stroller is folded so the canopy gets very dirty! It’s also hard to push it with one hand for example when you’re talking on the cell phone.

  173. Mom of two on April 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Love this stroller. Definitely worth the extra money. I don’t kick the wheels, storage basket is great for an umbrella stroller. My kids think it’s so comfortable. They are 18 months apart and happily take turns in the stroller. It’s so lightweight. I gave away my full sized stroller in favor of this one and never regretted it.

  174. Frustrated on April 8th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The handles of this stroller are relatively short and are placed low, so unless you lean forward while pushing it, it has to be quite close to your body when you’re using it. That’s fine, but the wheels are so close together at the back that you can’t take a decent-sized stride without kicking either the wheels or the back of the stroller while walking.

    I am 5’8″, which is a little tall for a woman, but I’m guessing that taller women and most men would have a hard time walking with this stroller without continually kicking it.

    We also have the Chicco Cortina travel system, and the stroller for that is great and doesn’t have any of these problems. We love Chicco products, but this one isn’t working for us.

  175. kris10mom on April 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is easy to open and close and we really like it. It’s so much better than those big bulky strollers. I use it for my 9 month old.
    I have a hard time with the seatbelt. It’s hard to get at, when you are trying to unbuckle it, and the buckle is really rigid. I like to take a drink with me sometimes on walks and there is no cup holder, but that’s not a big deal.

  176. nattie on April 23rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    keep it in the car for those quick trips – easy to unfold and seems comfortable – easy to fold – love the red color !!!!!

  177. b's mommy on May 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    First, I have to laugh at the people who said the buckle is a pinching hazard. Sorry, but I always make sure that my hands cover the buckle, not my son’s. This buckle is no more a hazard than any other buckle on any other stroller. I see that as user error. Now, if you look at it for what it really is…an umbrella stroller, you will not be disappointed. Yeah, the recline is a little strange with the zippers, but it gets the job done. As for the sun coverage, if you unsnap it from the back of the stroller, it flips down to keep the sun off my son’s face. It is pretty long when folded, but I have a big trunk and have no issues with it. It fits on the floor of the backseat as well. Yes, the wheels do touch the canopy when it’s folded, but only if the wheels are not facing forward when you fold it. I sprayed the the whole stroller with Scotchguard and staining is not an issue. You can always lock the front wheels in the forward position before you fold it and then they won’t touch the canopy. I’m 5′ 5″ with a long stride and I don’t have any issues kicking the stroller when I walk. I wear heeled shoes a lot too and don’t feel like I’m slumping over to push it. My husband doesn’t have any problems with that either. Two things I would change are: deeper storage basket and add a cupholder-neither are a dealbreaker for me though. It’s an umbrella stroller and it does a great job at that!

  178. LuvMy3 on May 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have the Cortina and the Capri and love love love them both! My son used them, and now I use the infant carrier for my three-month-old nephew that I watch during the day. These products have held up over the last two years, and have not lost their luster. It’s good to see that not only are they still up to par as far as safety standards, bit they are still in style, too!

  179. Aly's Mama on May 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We bought this stroller for our daughter for a road trip to San Diego considering our travel system from Graco is too bulky and can hardly fit into tight spaces. This was a great bang for the buck. This was the most compact gear we packed and it didn’t disappoint once we arrived. Handles smoothly and was able to keep up with our fast paced walk through the city.

    I also use it to go on shopping trips so that we are able to fit in between tight spaces and manaveure our way through clothing racks. Even though the basket is tiny, I use the handles of the bags and sling them over the handles of the stroller. Even a shopping basket from Target fits properly on the handles. And when I’m really in a hurry, other mommies with bigger strollers look with envy as I’m strolling my baby girl with one hand, breezing through the aisles, grabbing items and holding down a conversation with my hubby on the phone, all the while my daughter is enjoying the smooth ride. Must buy!

  180. Matthew's Mom on May 19th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We registered for this stroller because we were wanted to have a ligheter weight stroller for travel. We felt bad registering for a more expensive light weight stoller because our travel system stroller was so expensive. We had a chicco travel system that we loved so assumed that their light weight stroller would be just as good. We were so wrong for not going for a more expensive stroller. You definitely get what you pay for. For starters, good luck getting the canopy on and adjusted properly. Once it is on, it really does not protect against the sun. The stroller apparently has swival wheels- we never would have known it!! It is very difficult to manuver and is extremely uncomfortable to use. I read in other reviews people discouraging against it if you are tall- I am 5’3 and have a difficult time using it due to the handles and my feet hitting the wheels. Bottom line, spend a few more dollars and get the better stroller. We used ours a total of 3 times and plan on getting a new one.

  181. Nic on May 20th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Overall I feel this stroller is wonderful. My daughter loves it. I have used other lightweight strollers and the wheels get hung up all the time, this stroller does not do that. The only thing I don’t care for it the hook to keep it folded up is too hard to get it closed. Most of the time we don’t even latch it. When you are in a hurry you need something that is going to be a little easier.

  182. sc mommy on May 31st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    So far we’re very happy with this stroller, i wanted a nicer umbrella stroller to keep in the trunk as a backup for quick trips, ect. I think this is perfect for us, it has a large canopy, folds up easily and has a decent sized basket for storage. I gave it 4 stars only for the price- I doubt we would have purchased it on our own,but we got it as a gift. I personally think the handle height is fine and we’re pretty tall people.

  183. SARAH THE USY HOE on June 16th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I HATE THIS STROLLER I REALLY DO MY SON ZAYDEN RYAN HATES IT I WOULDNT RECCOMEND THIS SORRY.

  184. marriedtothearmy on July 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We love our chicco travel system and thought this was a reasonably priced light weight stroller. First, we trip over the wheels the entire time walking. You either have to push it very far in front of you or walk in a very narrow path. Second, the canopy stinks! It hardly provides any sun protection and was a HUGE pain to put on. No matter how you flip it or move it our baby is exposed to the sun. Third, swivel wheels…yea right…it is like the wheel lock is always on…but it isn’t!
    Worth the money for a more expensive one…which we will be getting.

  185. cheez8ball on July 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This is a pretty good lightweight stroller. It maneuvers very well and is really light. It folds up pretty small and is light enough to carry fairly easily over your shoulder. Things I would improve:

    – The basket is small and hard to get to due to crossing metal bars in front of the basket (I just hang my purse and diaper bag on the handles)

    – The handles are a little low. I am 5’9″ and my husband is 6’4″ and we have to bend a little to push the stroller.

    – The wheels are too close together. My feet hit the wheels when I walk.

    – There’s not much of a recline. When the seat is zipped up and it’s in its full forward position, my little guy still looks like he’s slouching. And when it’s unzipped, it only reclines about and inch and a half.

    At first I struggled to get the clasp snapped on and off when folding and unfolding the stroller, but I seem to have mastered it now. It doesn’t take long to snap it closed and stow the stroller. This is not a perfect stroller, but I’d still say it’s a good one. I’ve been using it for a year and still like it for times when a lightweight stroller is best. I’m glad I didn’t get a really cheap one.

  186. La La Mom on July 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I love this in terms of ease of use, fashion and compact/lightness. My only beef is that the sun shade is completely worthless. It provides no shade, just takes up room in the trunk and doesn’t mount easily. If I had it to do again, I would check out the shade it provides. Also, small kids tend to slouch in it due to the position of the harness.

  187. TrishaW on August 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This Stroller is below average in quality compare to there full size product line that ROCKS. It maneuvers very well and is really light. It folds up pretty small and is light enough to carry fairly easily over your shoulder with the strap that is provided with the unit. However i have a focus SVT and it barely fits in the hatch the full size one fits better when folded up. Things I would improve or look for next time:

    * Storage: this is not the stoller that you can easy take to the zoo there is no way a diaper bag will fit under it. there are these crossing metal bars in front of the basket (I just hang my purse and diaper bag on the handles)which is then awkward to walk behind.

    * handles are a little low. I am about 5’7″ and my husband is 5’6″ and we have to bend a little to push the stroller also the handles do not move and they are sometimes in a awkward position. there like little forks that turn inward. it would be nice if they were adjustable to come out a bit and turn either in or out.

    * The wheels are too close together. My feet hit the wheels when I walk. it would be great it there was just a single wheel however this is double and i find that my feet always stumbling over it and it is not like i am taking huge steps either.

    – There’s not much of a recline. When the seat is zipped up and it’s in its full forward position, my little guy still looks like he’s slouching. And when it’s unzipped, it only reclines about and inch and a half.

    *shade this unit does provide average shade when it is fully extended.

    *converts to double * this stroller could easy convert to a double (side by side) as there are clips provided.

    I normally only use this stroller to take short walks around the block however i found that i was walking hunched over and taking short little steps and on the return of my walk my back was hurting and my little man was uncomfortable from being so upright. Just spend the extra money on something like the trevi or the full size wider wheel base which makes walking more enjoyable.

  188. Working at home mom on August 25th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller because i have Teutonia (which I love) and my son get too hot in it and I decided to get a light stroller that is not too hot and for quick walks around the block. This stroller is too low I am 5’6 and have to bend every time. My son is 8mth and is 30 inches and his legs are hanging out from the seat and material cuts into his skin (behind knees). Not a good stroller to take naps in too. The only good thing about it, it folds nicely and is very light.
