Haven't used it for baby yet, but love it so far!
August 19, 2016
As first time parents, my husband and I have spent countless hours researching everything and anything baby. BOB was a recommended brand from 99% of our friends, so we checked them out and I fell in love with the BOB Motion stroller - a more "everyday" stroller that wasn't a jogger but still had the great ratings the BOB brand is known for. Of course, this stroller is pretty much impossible to find. Amazon, BBB, Toys R Us - not one of them had it in stock. A friend told me to check here and lo and behold, here it is AND IT'S ON SALE! So we purchased it, got it in the mail about 2 days later (very impressed with the shipping, btw) and set it up sans baby. It's pretty awesome. It took my husband and my 8 month pregnant self about 3 minutes to get it out of the box and set up and another minute to figure out how to close it and that was it. Less than 5 minutes! The tires ship flat, so we'll have to get those pumped up a bit, but it pushes fabulously on our carpet and tile (even with flat tires) and fits nicely both my 5'3" and his 6'0" frame. The recline is very simple to use, the harness looks difficult but ends up just being 3 parts and I'm happy to report there's just one giant "DANGER"/"WARNING"/"SAFETY" sign on the inside of the seat (I know they are important, but 1) is it really necessary to put 5 of them on a headrest? and 2) they look terrible). Baby will be here soon and we'll update, but so far, we really, really like the stroller. Also, I wanted it in black but once we realized how hard it was to find, I was fine with any color. The orange is actually not a bad color - is it my absolute favorite shade of orange? No, not really, but it's completely okay and I will obviously be fine. The hubs really likes the orange and is impressed with the shocks on the wheels. We have the Chicco Keyfit30 carseat in black but haven't purchased the adapter yet for it to use in the stroller. I imagine it won't be a hard installation. The carseat and stroller are supposed to be a fine connection from what I've read/researched.
