Perfect for twins
December 18, 2010
I love this stroller! I had been using a Graco double-tandem stroller and it was a huge pain. The Graco takes up a ton of space in my hatchback, is super clunky and difficult to manuever. The City Micro is none of those things. My 6-month-old twins have plenty of space and both get a good view of their surroundings while being able to see each other. The Micro is easy to collapse and takes up half the space of the Graco. And the red color is wonderful! It's very easy to spot on cloudy, rainy days. The Micro also pushes like a dream. I can do it with one hand! My twins are about the same size, but it's not much harder to push with my 3-year-old in one of the seats. It's also well made with a sturdy frame.
Some reviewers have complained about lack of storage, but the two baskets on the backs of the seats and the basket underneath are enough for most items. Instead of carrying a big diaper bag, I just use a canvas bag with the basics (which fits). There are no cupholders but I purchased the Sunshine Kids Stroller Accessory Buggy Buddy for $7.99 on Amazon. It attaches with velcro to the pushbar and holds two cups, keys and other small items. I've also read complaints about the shades and reclining of the seats. The shades pull out quite far, not enough to block all light, but farther than the other three strollers I've used. The seats do not recline to a flat position like some, but most children don't need to be lying down to fall asleep. The seats recline enough for my babies, and my son fell asleep in his seat on one of his first outings in the stroller.
Overall, this is a great stroller for $200. I probably wouldn't have spent $300, but it's definitely worth that price. It comes almost fully assembled (just needs the wheels screwed on).
Easy to fold
Cons:Doesn't lock into folded position
