Great Stroller for the Price!
June 11, 2013
I purchased this stroller to keep at my parents' home when my family vacations in FL. I love that the maximum weight capacity is 55 lbs. My 2 year-old is 32 lbs and 36 inches tall...she fits very well in the stroller with plenty of room to grow. She also loves the great pink color but be prepared, it is a lot brighter than pictured--almost flourescent. However, it was so easy to spot in the "stroller parking" area when we took it on a test run at a nearby amusement park. My primary stroller is a Maclaren Quest and the Esprit Sun Speed is a close second to that for a lot less money. However, it is a bit heavier but I see it as a plus as it does not tip over when my child is out of ithe stroller and the heavy diaper bag is still hanging on the handles. It is also a lttle bit cumbersome to close until you get the hang of it as you have to make sure a little tab is pushed in on the back before you can collapse it. The first few times, I had to lift and do it with my hand before I was finally able to just do it with my foot. After that, it has been smooth sailing! The seat reclines to several positions and the footrest can also be positioned up for younger babies. The bottom basket is comparable to other umbrella strollers. The canopy is average, wish it were bigger but for the price, I can't complain. My husnad loves that the handles are taller than on the Maclaren, making it an easier push for him--he is 5'11. Overall, a cute, fantastic stroller for a reasonable price!
