    Nicely made stroller, however not a good chioce if you’re tall. My husband says he has no trouble, but I have to bend at the waist a little or else I kick the back wheels.

    I love this stroller, it is so lightweight yet sturdy. I love the strap and carry bag!

    I researched to find the perfect unbrella stoller for weeks. It can go through gravel that the maclaren strollers cant. It has front wheel shocks. Its low priced and i’m tough on it. I have to haul heavy things far distances and I place most bags on the handles. If you hang the diaper bag on the handles it wont tip over if you take your child out. I love . Best buy

    I really wanted a McLaren, but they are quite expensive, and we needed an umbrella stroller for a long trip, one that would fit in our trunk more compactly than our Graco Metrolite. So I bought the Chico with some reservations, but am very happy. It comes fully assembled, which is wonderful! It is a little difficult for me to latch closed, but my husband has no problems. It moves smoothly and turns and steers even better than our Graco! For the price, it certainly was a good buy. Even though it only has two seat positions, my son falls asleep in it very easily. I would still like a McLaren Techno someday, but I am very happy with this stroller.

    I ordered this stroller because I was sick of lugging around the big mammoth one I got with my son’s carrier. It’s orange to hide stains, it’s so lightweight, there’s a basket under the stroller, and the handles hold my purse and his diaper bag. The height of the stroller is a bit of a pain for my husband to push, but at 5’4″ it’s not a problem for me. My son is very comfortable in it (at 10 weeks old). The straps are a little high on him right now, but he doesn’t seem to mind. It’s a great stroller for the mall and for places where you don’t want to take up a lot of room. It’s well worth the reasonable price!

    I think this is a great stroller, we bought it becuase our other umbrella stroller was getting too small for our future line backer, it is light weight and easy to open. I like that it has a strap so you can carry it when it is folded and it even comes with a case. The only downside is that the storage compartment is small and the zippers that allow the child to lay back don’t really make enough difference. All in all a good stroller.

  7. Abigail Violet's Mama on November 11th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I researched umbrella strollers for weeks trying to make the best decision. Consumer Reports and website recommendations made this the clear choice for us. It’s a very durable stroller and is convenient for short trips. However, after using it for a few months, my 11-month old daughter hates it. She can’t sit up straight in it, and furiously tenses up her entire body when we try to sit her in it. She is small for her age, but has good body strength, so I have no idea why she slouches so badly in this stroller. […] We’ve resorted to using our gigantic Graco Quattro Tour stroller for every trip, since it’s more comfortable for everyone.

    I love this stroller because it’s lightweight and easily portable. The bag underneath is awesome. I just took my 4 week old son for his first walk today and I had no problems! The seat reclines just enough. I used the Snuzzler by Kiddopatamus for the extra support. Plus, I love the color!

  9. MommytoBrookyCarterandSyd on January 25th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is great, even for 3.5 year olds. My daughter Syndni still fits in it great. She never complains about it, and its perfect for walks when the 3 year old gets tired. She can push it herself when she wants to be a “big girl” too! Shes pretty small though; still rear faces in her Britax Roundabout, so I dont know how well it would fit other 3.5 yr olds, but it works great for us!

    Easy to travel with and lightweight. Worth every penny

  12. ramrice on May 10th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Harder to fold up than I thought. Nice looking, but nothing special for the money.

  13. sarah on June 18th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller primarily for use on our camping trips. It has held up exceptionally well. The double wheels in front and back are very strudy. turns well and has good color choices. my 20mth old loves riding in it.

  14. Everett's Mom on July 13th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I researched many lightweight strollers for my 14 month-old and this one is the best. I have two others, both gifts, and they are nowhere near as lightweight, convenient, or easy to use. It folds quickly, (you can open it or close it with one hand) and is stylish to boot. I’d say the only complaint I have is that the handles are a bit short for me (I’m 5′ 6″). But don’t let that stop you from buying it. Well worth the money. Also, it works just as well on grass, trails, etc. as on sidewalks.

  15. jenni on July 14th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I like it, but..does anyone else notice that in the recline position the babys back or head lays on the 2 cross bars in back of the stroller? that cant be comfortable. I think that is my only gripe with it.

  16. cf on July 24th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I like the appearance of this stroller and it is a smooth ride. It has one giant flaw. The handles do not extend out far enough from the stoller, so you either have to bend over to push it or your feet keep stepping on the wheels! It is very frustrating; especially considering it is an umbrella stroller and it costs [$]! I told chicco about it and they said the handles are 36″ off the ground. It has nothing to do with height; the handles need to either extend higher or further away from the stroller itself! Make sure you test drive before you buy!!

  17. Su on July 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a great, fantastic liteweight stroller. Many of the complaints, I feel, are by people expecting too much. This is my 8th stroller, I am downsizing and getting rid of all of them except this stroller and my double jogger as my youngest is now 15 months (others are 3 and 5). The best part is that the front wheels actually turn. I have the combi lightweight, and the wheels are shaky and hard to maneuver… not this stroller. I also love the handles. I agree, they are a bit short… but, so am I… maybe the MacLaren would be better for taller people. But… do not forget, this is a lightweight stroller… it isn’t supposed to have a lot of bells and whistles. I too researched, and am thrilled with my purchase. So is my baby… and he is not a big fan of sitting in strollers to begin with.

  18. P's Mommy on July 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    A must have for when baby is able to sit up on their own. The big stroller is getting too heavy to lug around town. I am 5’3″ and this stroller is the perfect height. If you are taller than 5’7″, then you will probably hunch over when using this stroller. Only thing I wish they would add to the stroller are extendable handles for the taller husbands! I am glad that I got the orange stroller. No one around my area has one in this color and is very easy to spot at the playground or in the mall!

  19. Brig511 on August 27th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller. It is easy to open and fold up. Smooth ride. Even though it is not very big I like the basket underneath. I also like the color. I have not seen anyone with this color. Try one out in the store before you buy if you are worried about the height. It is a little short, but that does not bother me yet.

  20. Aidan's Mommy on September 8th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is a great stroller. It is very light weight, folds easily, and is compact. It is definitely a stroller you want to wait to use until your child is a little bigger. Great stroller at a great price!

  21. Melissa on September 11th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I would NOT recommend this stroller. I am 5’8″, not that tall or that short. I got this stroller at a different store yesterday and am returning it today. The design of the handle bars in relation to the wheels is terrible! I almost fell flat on my face when I first started pushing it. The handle bars aren’t far enough out from the wheels, so you are constantly kicking the wheels and tripping on them. It would be an awesome stroller if Chicco just had made the handle bars out farther or at least longer.

  22. MommieOfTwo on November 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Just the best. Lightweight and duarable. Very easy to use. Whether you are folding it up or roaming around town, its great! We used it on a cruise and it was great to have the carrying strap.

  23. mom that travels on February 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We bought this stroller for vacation, it is a perfect midsize stroller so easy to use and our 1 1/2 year old really likes it, it does not have a cup holder that would be the only thing I would add.

  24. Camdens Dad on February 16th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The price is a little high on this stroller, but it’s better quality than your everyday umbrella stroller. It has a few flaws though. When folded up, it has a tendency to want to fall right back open. I haven’t located any sort of lock on it, so it’s pretty annoying. Also, when my wife and I walk behind it we have to make a conscience effort not to kick the back wheels with our feet. We are both approx. 5’10” tall, so it’s kind of surprising that we have this problem. On the plus side, it is much more stylish than most other lightweight “umbrella” strollers, and it does have a little bit of storage, and its a great alternative to pulling out the huge “travel system” stroller.

  25. First time Mom on March 3rd, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I did a lot of research on umbrella strollers. We travel a lot & I wanted something durable, lightweight, and portable. I am 100% satisfied with this purchase. It is very secure & my baby is very comfortable in it. The mesh basket underneath is a bonus too. Comes with a travel bag which I have never used, but might come in handy.

  26. Austin's Mommy on April 21st, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have researched strollers for quite some time now…I finally purchased this stroller for our quick trips/vacations. My husband did not think we needed a lightweight stroller, since we already have the stroller that goes with the infant carrier. However ever since I bought this stroller, my husband has been pushing it! He barely lets me do it….and he “off roads” in the grass, fields, ect with NO PROBLEM!… This stroller seems a bit pricey…but it seems to be built nicely…and the wheels work VERY WELL…this stroller is easy to manuver.

  27. Myralys on April 27th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We just got our Chicco Capri stroller, and WE LOVE IT!!! It looks great, easy to maneuver, my son is super comfortable in it, and it was much cheaper than most other strollers of the same quality. We had a $20 umbrella that was bad – the wheels would stick, my son was squished inside, and it was too low to the ground. I’ve spent a long time researching strollers, because I wanted an umbrella (we already have a large, all-terrain stroller), but I didn’t want to spend too much. And belive me, this is the BEST!!! My husband took our son to daycare in this stroller this morning and called me right away to tell me how great the stroller is. He said he can lead it with one hand, no problem. And neither of us step on the wheels when we walk behind it (we are medium-height, I’m 5ft7, my husband – about 5ft10). It is true that the basket is not too big, but do you really need to put many things in a stroller like this? Besides, it is very sturdy, so I think hanging a purse and/or a shopping bag from the handle would be just fine.

  28. Tabitha on May 12th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is adorable, its light weight and a smooth ride. I am 5’1″ tall and every time I push the stroller I kick the wheels because the handles are NOT long enough and are to close together. Plus my daughter slides down because the T strap is set far forward. I have to prop her up with a little pillow she sits on. Cute but over all annoying. I now own a Maclaren and its perfect!!!

  30. Lina on June 11th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I think this stroller is not worth this price. The handles are too short, it’s almost like you have to bend over. And because they are short, I’m kicking the wheals all the time. Doesn’t recline much. No cupholder. They way this stroller folds, it leaves the sunshade dirty. Hard to clean.

  31. Mom on the go on June 18th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    If you are above average in height don’t get this stroller – your feet will constantly kick the back and you will find yourself shuffling your feet instead of walking. Also, the “recline” feature is a mere 1 inch extra, if that. The lightweight frame is the only good feature.

  32. Busy lizzy on June 20th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is a really nice stroller. I bought him the blue one while out with a friend to use right away. I couldnt stand the travel one althogh it was neccesary now that my son is 11 months he doesnt need it anymore. It was already put together in the box. I literally used right out of the store. we opened it up in the parking lot checked it out n it was perfect. I took it into the mall on a saturday n i did not run into any1 or thing its great in small stores as well. My suggestion that this item be purchased for a child that has sturdy sitting up control but to be honest kids that young should still be in a travel stroller but other then that me n my entire family love it n were thrilled to see it when i brought it home because the other one was way too big

  33. Hana's Dad on July 4th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The product is perfect because we already have a full time stroller and needed a lightweight one to travel with. Our travel system was too big to gate check. This one is great because it is inexpensive but still has a five point harness which younger kids will need for support.

  34. BSITTER on July 15th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have this stroller for the little boy I babysit. He’s a tiny one, only 1, and he loves this! It is very easy to push and steer and lightweight but sturdy. I had a 100 pound girl sitin this for awhile and you couldn’t even tell that she was not a toddler it fit her so well. This is a awesome stroller. The only think I might change is a brighter orange.

  35. mom of 3 on August 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I bought this stroller a few months ago. And I find thats its not worth the money. It pushes ok but I did find myself kicking the tires. I like that it reclines but its only about an inch. The one really BAD thing about this stroller is that when you fold it the tires rub the sunshade and it is impossible to get clean!!! I have seen 5 other people with the same dirty sunshade… Spend the extra $$ and buy a mclaren volo its a great stroller and worth every penny!!

  36. Momma Mel on August 9th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This product is the deluxe version of an umbrella stroller. Exactly what I wanted for travelling with my toddler.

  37. Iowa Mama on August 11th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We purchased this for our 9month old who all of a sudden hated her travel system stroller. We chose this one (but in another pattern w/polka dots) because it was upright and steered easily. She seems alot more comfortable in this one.

    I only have a couple complaints with this stroller and they are very minor. When folded the front wheels rub on the canopy, which gets it dirty. Not a huge deal but unexpected. To fix this we lock the front wheels before folding it up.

    The storage bag really is small but it is a small stroller so that can be expected. It’s just hard to get anything in the basket because the stroller bars are in the way of the opening to the basket.

    We just deal with that or use the S hooks that we purchased to hang our diaper bag and my purse on if needed.

  38. mom of 2 on August 17th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    my first one broke! its just not as durable as i thought it would be! i feel like if i hang anything on the handle its going to break…again

  39. Vanessa on August 20th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    Before purchasing this stroller, I read all the reviews on it. Honestly I’m glad I didn’t go by the bad reviews and actually went to the store and check it out for myself. I purchased this stroller because I wanted an "Umbrella Stroller" with a canopy and that reclines. The stroller doesn’t recline all the way back; just enough for my son to be at an angle and be comfortable. I recently went on a trip. It was easy to carry, close, open and push around. This stroller serves its purpose.

  40. mom of one on August 20th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    It is a great stroller and my son loves it! There are a few problems the canopy gets dirty from the wheels when folded but as long as you leave the canopy down its no big deal. Also the handles seem really fragile and I am always scared I will break them. I would also recommend getting a diaper bag that has stroller straps they are awesome for this type stroller since there is no room to store things in the bottom. Other than all that my son loves it and seems very comfy in it he also loves taking naps in it. Great buy and it saves a ton of room and time.
