BEST stroller for THE CITY...i.e. New York City!!!
February 20, 2014
I have had this stroller for 3 years now and I just had to come and write a review since as a new parent, I remember how useful all of the reviews were for me in making our decisions about which of the bizillion baby products/gadgets/etc. would work best for us. In retrospect, this was one of the best purchases we made in preparation for being City parents. I'm a born & raised NYer and my mom STILL has the sturdy umbrella stroller she used for all 4 of her kids starting 42 years ago! Strollers have gotten SO huge...so heavy...so expensive, I honestly had NO idea. I couldn't believe the prices these things are going for these days! We toyed with the idea of a Britax with a 'reversible' seat because I really do believe on bonding with the child and giving the comfort of seeing the parent amidst being pushed around so many stimuli... and so we also looked at the Stokke, the Bugaboo series, etc. But then the blood flow came back to my head and I just couldn't justify paying more for a stroller than I paid for my first motorcycle! We saw someone with the City Mini on the subway, liked the look & asked them about it and they raved. So after much research & finding a deal we were fully happy to pay the $170 for it. I must say, it was completely worth it and we're looking forward to see good use out of it for the second ( & third & more...) children in the future. I don't know if these strollers will last 40 years, but the benefits now are numerous. 1) When our daughter was an infant until she was 13 months, we used the frame, without the fabric as the base & stroller for the car seat. She was facing us, it felt very sturdy & protective and I immediately noticed that the stroller was 'thinner' than the 'SUV brands' about because I could go down any tiny bodega shopping isle and the wheels allowed me to maneuver easily through small spaces. I carried her in am Ergo most of the 1st year anyway, but when we needed the stroller it was great. We live between Brooklyn and Rome, Italy and I couldn't have predicted how convenient those wheels would be on the cobblestobnes! ( I saw a 'fancy' stroller topple over w baby inside on the cobblestone streets! NOT with the stable Citi Mini!). 2) The stroller is perfect for local neighborhood shopping, errands, etc. with a very large and easy to load 'basket' on the bottom. the stroller has a good 'center' so can be loaded up quite a bit and still not fall back with your baby in it just because you let go of the handles. 3) even if it doesn't have an extendable foot rest my daughter always has and still can take a really good nap in this stroller. The fact that it reclines all the way back is great and when she was small & we were traveling a bit, with some blankets, she's even slept the night in the stroller. 4) Now that she's older, my daughter can climb in and out by herself and with the front bar, for neighborhood runs, doesn't need to be strapped in and she's still secure wioth the depth of the seat & the front bar. Let's be real, its a lightweight stroller in comparison to what's out there, but it is NOT light. My mother refused to take my daughter on the subway with it so we did end up getting a jazzy umbrella stroller that we use for inter-borough traveling and now for international traveling, mainly because the cars are smaller in Europe and the Citi Mini is still too big for a standard EU trunk! BUT, This is my Brooklyn Stroller and I am writing this review today after 2 months + of steady blizzards and rain and snow freezing rain over snow over layers of ice over snow.... and I must say I have been THOROUGHLY impressed by this stroller. When Its Icy, it had a grip and when its snowy-slushy, it cuts through it like hot water. Without this stroller I would have spent unnecessary money on cabs to school because its just a 15 min walk but the weather has been treacherous and it has truly been a life saver. There were school-runs where I would see moms struggling block after block to carry their child over and through the snow. I did not see ANY other strollers out in these weeks besides a few Citi Minis and one Phil & Teds jogger. ( no cute Bugaboos, No Stokkes...no strollers were out for DAYS). Not only is my daughter super protected and cozy even without the rain cover ( the canopy is amazing) but she just holds onto the front bar and loves the 'bumpy bumpy' ride over mounds of ice/snow/slush. The guys in my neighborhood have taken to say "Oh, here she comes! She knows how to drive that thing!" and I even received applause from stranded pedestrians after maneuvering through a tricky snow-blocked mound! And if you do need to lift it over a huge puddle for example, it is not that heavy that its a struggle... Whether its unpaved streets, potholes, a walk through the muddy park or an actual run in the park, this stroller is GREAT. We have done absolutely no maintenance to it in 3 years and it could probably use some oil as the steering can be quite tight at times, but my daughter walks a lot and we really only use it for Brooklyn school runs & grocery shopping/ farmer's market trips so I consider it a great investment. You may need to get a companion umbrella stroller if you travel internationally/ move between boroughs like we do ( we went w the Uppababy G-Luxe) but still, with sales, we spent $300 on BOTH strollers and couldn't be happier. Quality doesn't always mean a high price and I'm happy to say that over time, the lesson, from a native NYer is stay practical, functional and high-functioning in your baby-gear choices... who cares how 'chic' and expensive the stroller looks? Save the money for outfitting your kid in cute and 'chic' clothes...they are the REAL accessory after all ... or better yet....for that private pre-school they're on the waiting list for! Enjoy!

I bought the Baby Jogger City Mini to use when I watch my granddaughter, it is very easy to fold with one hand, and folds very compact to store in my car, it is very light weight, extremely light to push, sun visor covers most of the baby, so I don't have to worry about sun burn while I am walking her, and has 2 viewing clear panels to check on baby. Large storage compartment under stroller for shopping expeditions. I have tried other more expensive strollers and they cannot be compared to this one! I highly recommend it. LOVE THIS STROLLER!!!

Great Stroller
May 6, 2015
I sold my double stroller because my 5 year old no longer needed it. I went with another baby jogger stroller, because I loved my double so much!! This is a great stroller, it is easy to maneuver - love that the front wheel turns 360 degrees, putting it away and taking it out is a breeze. I wouldn't hesitate at all to recommend this to a friend!!

Stroller perfect for my needs!
May 6, 2015
I was looking for a stroller to keep at our second home in the desert where our four kids and 5 grandchildren visit frequently. My daughters were specific about what kind of stroller I should get and this one perfectly fit their expectations perfectly. I didn't want to spend a lot of money either and by purchasing the color I did, which is very nice and neutral, I was able to get what I wanted for a good price. In arrived in a reasonable amount of time, is easy to fold up and fits nicely in the trunk of our small convertible. It is also very light.
Pros:
Lightweight, folds up quickly and easily, fits in small trunk, easy to turn with one hand
Cons:
Having walked my grandkids with my daughter's Bob stroller, the handle seems a little narrow. But hers is a double stroller, not a single, so that could be why.
Best Uses:
Walking in the neighborhood or anyplace where you don't want to carry the baby all the timel

The Best City Stroller
March 6, 2015
They are not exaggerating, this is the best city stroller. Its great on uneven sidewalks, ice and snow. the canopy is sturdy and reaches way further down than my previous stroller. i can even wiggle up and down short flights of steps because the clearance allows it and the wheels reach. My little guy loves sitting in it and napping in it. The only thing i miss is being able to hang a bag or lunch sack from the handles. I love the one handed folding. Its light for how solid it is. So pleased.
Pros:
one handed folding, single handlebar for one-handed steering, really affordable for how sturdy and light
Best Uses:
city, long distances, everyday

I needed something bigger than an umbrella stroller that would travel easily. This worked out great!! It's durable, has enough storage space (With the addition of a handle bar organizer), and folds easily. We breezed through the airport with ease, checked the stroller at the gate and reopened it quickly when we reached our destination. We also didn't have any problem rolling this through the sand, as long as the baby wasn't in it - it made spending the day at the beach super comfortable for naptime!

This is my second City Mini stroller. There are a lot of improvements since the 2007 version. The foot pad has a new material that doesn't crack. The basket is larger, and best of all there is build-in back and bottom support.
Cons:
The green color in the picture is the older model green color, a bit pastel or sage. The new model is much more of a forest green color, it took some getting used to.

I love this stroller. Very light weight and easy to maneuver. Putting it away is a cinch. It rides smooth when we go for walks. The canopy section is really nice with several different positions you can set it in to block out sun or wind and it also has the 2 "sun-roof" options. Over all very quality product. Wish it came with a parent console instead of separately. The storage underneath is a little on the narrow but manageable.
Pros:
Light weight easy to fold adjustable canopy easy harness adjustability
Cons:
No parent console Storage compartment a little narrow
Best Uses:
Walking Running errands Long strolls at the park

Fabulous stroller
December 8, 2014
Our family had an earlier version of this sucker, which lasted us approximately six years of everyday wear and tear (two kids)-- it was used for commutes and any outings over the weekend-- and lots of mileage through grit, rain, snow, mud, you name it. Sadly, it had to be replaced because we neglected the back wheels and couldn't replace them, since the old ones were stuck in place after so much abuse. (Take note: take good care of the stroller, and it can last forever. The wheels were available and inexpensive from City Mini...! Don't do what we did!) This newer version has a few more details: the space underneath is larger and more easily accesible from the back of the stroller; there is a piece that holds the stroller folded, etc. A couple of things changed color: the break and the straps for snapping in place. These two changes I didn't find particularly useful, but some might, given that they were made to more easily see the parts. The stroller is still wonderful, comfy, and very nicely maneuverable-- I can push one-handed at times, and I can get in and out of crowded trains when commuting. The ride is smooth, and the parts are all very solid, of good materials, and nicely put together. And... Albeebaby gave us an incredibly good price on this awesome stroller, so we are extremely happy with our purchase.

Great, Lightweight Stroller
November 19, 2014
Before our daughter was born, I spent a lot of time debating which stroller to get. I wanted one all-around stroller that I could use when we go hiking or on the beach, but also in the grocery stores and malls. Unfortunately, most strollers don't have absolutely everything you could want and many people wind up having several as a result. I originally narrowed my choices down to a Bob Revolution SE, City Mini, and City Mini GT. I wound up ruling out the GT because for its purpose- a true jogging/adventure stroller- the winner was Bob. The only problem I worried about with the Bob was how large it was for everyday use and travel. However, a few friends of mine use it as their primary (or only) stroller and they raved about it. So, I started with the Bob and haven't been at all disappointed. Yes, it's a great stroller and will last for years. The only thing is that with a car seat, it just seems like such a gigantic item to take places. It's heavy and takes up a lot of space even in the back of my pilot, so I tended not to take it to quick shopping trips. I started realizing that I needed a lightweight stroller as an option when the Bob was just too much. So, I went back to the City Mini and finally ordered one. I love this stroller! All of a sudden, I was taking a stroller every time I went to the store or even to get coffee- even just a quick trip where I would normally either carry the car seat or wear my child. It's so light and easy to travel with- I now look for excuses to go to the store. Now, this isn't my stroller of choice for the beach or even a walk around the block- it has okay tires, but they aren't forgiving like the air-filled ones on the Bob (and there are no shocks), which makes for a bumpy ride- but this is a great stroller. I still consider my Bob as the primary stroller and I'll use it in more situations once the baby can go in without a car seat. However, in the meantime, I now have a great alternative stroller to use especially in tight areas or when I don't think I'll need much storage space (keep in mind you can't hang bags from the City Mini's handlebar). I'll have to wait to see how comfortable the baby thinks it is as she transitions from the car seat. You can use this stroller from birth if you want if you lay the back completely flat, but I'm not anxious to try that just yet. (City Mini is recommended from 6 months on without a car seat if you don't have the seat flat; surprisingly, I read that Bob can be used from 8 weeks on if the child has good head control, though I'm not sure how many 2 month olds have good head control). Just a word about the under-the-seat-storage, which has come up on a few sites' reviews. I don't have any problem with this at all. The curved bar makes it easy to put stuff in/pull stuff out, though you can also do this from the stretchy sides of the basket. However, it's not especially spacious. You won't fit a lot of items below. If I'm getting more than a couple items, I'll take a grocery basket at the store even with this stroller. You cannot hang bags from the handle, so you're kind of limited in terms of storage space. I have seen these mesh side bags on Amazon that you can buy to fit on any stroller and that may be a good alternative to give you a little more storage if that's a major concern. I had originally wanted only one stroller not only because of storage, but money. I didn't want to spend a lot on a stroller that only did so much- which is why I spent so much time looking for the do-it-all-stroller. Unfortunately, there seems to not be anything like this- you have to make some sacrifices one way or the other. With the Bob, I sacrificed weight and size. The City Mini (regular or GT) is not a jogging stroller. I did manage to get a great deal on the Bob (at the time) with free shipping and a coupon, so I felt that I at least saved something. And I bought the City Mini on clearance- this 2013 version in green was $159 here ($250 elsewhere) with free shipping. One of my gripes about both strollers is that neither comes with any accessories. I think for the typical price, they should have something- the tray would be nice at least. I had to buy car seat adapters for both strollers (I have a Britax B Safe). I got the Bob's for $44 (with coupon and free shipping) and the City Mini for $20 (Amazon and free shipping). I could have gotten a Britax B Agile stroller (comparable to the City Mini) to avoid the adapter, but I found that the City Mini quality was just so much better. If I'm going to spend money on one or more strollers, they better stand up to the abuse I suspect my child will give to this equipment. One thing of note, though, about the ease of closing the stroller: Yes, you can do this one-handed. However, the instructions say to close these red, safety straps that snap to the stroller frame and never use the stroller without them in place. Well, if you do this, you have to unsnap them every time you want to close the stroller (it won't fold with these attached). I guess people are not using them? (It prevents the stroller from accidentally folding- but it seems hard for that to happen, so use your best judgment). The other issue is that I still find it a little awkward to open with one hand. It can be done, but you do have to bend over a bit and with a kid in hand, it's not quite as simple as it is to close it. No big deal, but I just wanted to mention it. I suggest you go to your local store and give it a try.
Pros:
Quality material- you can just feel it's better than many other brands with comparable strollers. It's easy to use one-handed especially on smooth areas/floors. It's so easy to adjust the harness and back. It offers a mesh area in the back of the stroller that is exposed when the stroller back is down. This allows a nice breeze to come through when your kid is in there- something that's important if you take a stroller out in major heat. They get so hot so fast, so this is a great option. The color choices are great. The product, itself, is easy to transport, light, easy to fold, pretty easy to open.
Cons:
Like many of the nicer strollers, it lacks accessories. Everything has to be purchased separately. Also, it's not the greatest on terrain other than smooth or paved areas/floors. It's tough on grass, sand, gravel. I don't use this for walks around the block (our neighborhood has gravel and tar roads- not the smooth pavement, so it's pretty bumpy). Cost can be an issue, but I got mine on clearance with free shipping, so I can't complain too much.
Best Uses:
This stroller is ideal for grocery store trips, mall trips, quick errands, etc. I would think this would make a great stroller to take to a parade- the kind of stroller that can go just about everywhere that's paved or smooth. I don't know about long shopping trips because the storage below the seat isn't huge and you can't hang bags on the handle bar.

This is the BEST stroller
November 8, 2014
I have used this stroller for years with my own children...both the single and double. I now run a business renting out baby gear and this is the #1 requested stroller.

Really good choice
November 4, 2014
It took weeks to choose a stroller for my 7 months old baby girl - safe, easy to carry and fold, not too heavy, not too narrow space. Finally, it came out Baby Jogger. Luckily I've made the right choice. Now baby sleeps in the stroller in the daylight every day! And it is really incredibly easy to travel with. Such great design and quality.
