Most Versatile Stroller for 1 or 2 Kids! So easy to manuever!
January 16, 2012
I researched what stroller to purchase for months before my twins were born. I finally chose the Baby Jogger City Select w/ 2nd seat Kit. I bought it in Diamond (the light silver color) because we live in hot south Florida and I thought the light color would keep them cooler (it has). I have been using this stroller now almost a year and I have to say it is really fantastic. It works great with 2 kids or easily is converted to a single stroller when you only have one with you. The fabric has held up amazingly to stains, comes off and washes pretty easily (you just have to unsnap and slide the metal foot rest portion of the seat out) ...and boom, its in the wash. I purchased the car seat adapter kits as well and have been using it with my Peg Perego Primo Viaggio infant car seats. It is also easy to use with the stroller seats. It takes two seconds to click out the car seat adapter and click in the stroller seat. The seating options are fantastic. The best part of all is the maneuverability, it corners on a dime and is easily driven one handed (which is mandatory for me). It fits easily through doors and down narrow isles at the mall or grocery store. The basket underneath is great too, tons of room when shopping especially when being used with car seats, basket room is reduced slightly when stroller seats are facing inward because foot rests dip into the storage basket . The stroller folds easily and takes very little room. If you have a small trunk, you could even quickly remove large rear wheels and it would fold very compactly. This is an awesome "around town" shopping stroller or even light walking stroller. I prefer my BOB Revolution Duallie for Running/Walking longer distances because the tandem set up of the Baby Jogger can be a little awkward at higher speeds, but the BOB is too giant to use for errands. Lastly, we bought a Graco Ipo Twin for airport travel because I was concerned about my Baby Jogger being damaged or stolen. The Graco is a side by side "umbrella fold" style stroller. It is a nice product but weighs a ton, has minimal basket space and requires two hands to maneuver. Overall, the Baby Jogger is winner for versatility, quality, design and ease of use. People always comment on what a beautiful stroller it is and how neat it is to see the kids facing each other, or both facing in/out. It is a really sleek stroller and is worth every penny!
