  1. First time mom on March 1st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Being a first time mom, i was excited by the looks of this, its features and its corresponding price. Also was mentioned that its an easy to use compact stroller. Also it is mentioned that its easy to lift in and out of the car. But to my dismay nothing but the packed stroller fitted into the trunk of my Volkswagen Passat (Sedan), neither straight nor side ways!! To fit it in there I had to remove the handle (which is not the right thing to do since the handle is not adjustable). I had no option but to take up the task of dissembling and returning it Careful buyers!!
    regards

    we just got this stroller.. we tested out many models in the store but they all seemed flimsy to us that fit our needs. We wanted something that would fit in our small dodge neon but held the diaper bag and had cup holders and we didnt have to bend over to use.. this fit us perfect!

    I wanted an umbrella stroller but I am a tall girl, so its hard to find a stroller that offers handles that are tall enough so I am not bending over while using this stroller. I also wanted a stroller that I wouldn’t kick everytime I took a step. This stroller isn’t small but its not huge either and it is fairly light weight. I have no problem taking it in and out of my car or folding it up. It is comfortable for me to use and best of all my son really enjoys it. The extra storage on bottom and cup holders on top are a bonus that most other light weight strollers don’t offer.

    THERE IS A REASON THAT THIS STROLLER IS FAR CHEAPER THAN THE COMPARABLE ONES!!

    I bought this item not because of its low price, but because of its excellent storage, easy fold, and just the right height. I used the stroller for 1 hour in a mall, and the rear wheels were falling off. (not an assembly error) The plastic inside the wheels had stretched and distorted. I liked the design enough to return the item to the store and get another one. I brought it home, assembled it again, and tried it out-and its going back to the store tomorrow. It is poorly designed/constructed.

    I am a mechanical engineer, and I can clearly see the problems lie in the rear axle/wheel assembly being too sloppy and having a poor shock design. They use little rubber block wedges to absorb the impact on the rear of the stroller-this is a poor cheap design that will not hold up.

    BOTTOM LINE-STROLLER SEEMS GREAT IN THE STORE, BUT CHANCES ARE THAT IT WILL NOT HOLD UP

    I haven’t used it too much yet, but so far it’s been wonderful. It fits into my new model ford mustang. It was just what I wanted/needed as my son was only one month old when I bought it. It’s a good buy, and worth the price. 🙂

    I bought this stroller for my daughter and I have had it for 2 month, only used it 3 times and wheels are braking. It started to wiggle and holes for metal rods were to big so the tires started to bend in. Tires then rubbed on frame of stroller

    I just recently purchased this stroller and I am very happy with it. I had a graco travel system and want to get rid of the infant seat which meant, getting rid of the car seat. I am 5’11 and it is a must that I have a stroller that is easy to push so that I am not killing my back. I was absolutely amazed at all the padding the seat had for my little one. Its super easy to maneuver in stores and very light. It folds up nicely, but if there would be one thing I could change, it would be the way it folded. While its nice that it folds to you and there is no bending over to pick up the stroller after it has collapsed, the stroller does not collapse over the under carriage basket, therefore, the basket sticks out an additional foot. I have an expedition and when folded flat, the stroller extends from my second row seat all the way to the tailgate. That is a lot of room consumed. Other than that, I highly recommend this product.

    I bought this stroller a few days ago and already returned it. I read the reviews after I bought it and was a little skeptical but after using it once I decided for myself that it is poor quality. Other reviews stated that the front wheel had fallen off so that was also a big factor. When I put it together I saw for myself how cheap it was. The vinyl booting that covers above the front wheels was very cheap and was already torn. When I tried to open and close the stroller, the latch wouldn’t pull all the way up so it was very hard to get it to open or close. The 3 point harness was very hard to unfasten. If a child were choking it would definitely be a hazard trying to get them out.They also made it seem like the stroller had a completely flat position but it only reclines to an angle. It takes up a lot of space when folded down. I have a 4runner and the stroller had to go from side to side instead of front to back. The child’s tray is kinda tricky to flip over. The one handed steering is a joke. The stroller had a mind of it’s own when I tried it. I would just recommend spending a little more and getting a quality product.

    We bought this stroller on vacation when we realized our umbrella stroller wasn’t going to work well for long walks and we needed something our ten month old could take a nap in. It’s true that the seat does not recline all the way to flat… but it reclines enough for our picky sleeper, and it’s very, very comfortable for him – cool fabric for our hot Florida summers, and padded just enough to be comfy but not heat-trapping. The height works for me (5’2″) and for my husband (6’2″). It folds up easily, though differently than our other strollers which took a bit getting used to, but is fine overall. This fit just fine in the back of our 4Runner, along with all the rest of our suitcases and junk. Also, I am a total weakling with no muscle power, and I was pleased at the weight and how easy it was to put in our car.

    The only downsides to this stroller are that the child buckle is a little difficult to open – you have to work with it a little, and we know how to do that now, but in the beginning, it was a bit annoying.

    Overall, I am happy with this stroller purchase, and even though I’m sure I could have spent more money and gotten a lot more bells and whistles, this stroller was a perfect choice for a budget-friendly price.

    I would just like to say that I have had this stroller since my little guy was born, and he is three now. A few months after he was using it, the back right wheel was smashed in my trunk, and the wheel is bent. My husband glued it on so it wouldnt fall of, and it hasnt, but as he gets bigger, its harder to push him around. The two front wheels fall off is i go over a bump, or a curb. He hasnt gotten hurt, but that is a hazard! the company didnt want to replace anything for me either, they wanted me to go in their store and buy new wheels. The nice thing about this stroller is that is reclines fully, and when he was a newborn he was safe to ride that way. My model also has a bug net that comes down in front and attaches to the tray and that is nice, since our state bird is the mosquito 🙂 He still likes the net to this day. I wouldnt recommend this stroller, because of the wheels, and I am not sure if they have had any other problems with this, but it is sure frustrating. I have just ordered a new stroller for him for the rest of this summer and fall and hope it works out better!

    I use this stroller on smooth pavement. I like the fact that the stroller is wider so it keeps baby a bit cooler in the warm southern heat, but the darm wheels feel like they are going to come off, particularly the back wheels. I have had it a week and used it 3 times for walks with baby. Don’t lift it up using the back wheels to get on a curb. The metal rod back there is so thin. I wish I had noticed this in the store. I wouldn’t have bought it. I was so focused on the softness of the seat that I find favorable with evenflo strollers. If your baby is heavy lift the stroller on front wheels when making turns if you can no longer return the stroller and get a better one. Use the stroller very gently, but don’t expect it to make it to your child is 4. I am going to call Evenflo tomorrow as well as Babies R Us to see if I can return it since it has only been a week. I rather not keep the stroller because I know it is not going to last more than 3 months.
