Not easy to close and open
May 6, 2014
One word to describe this stroller is temperamental. Sometimes it closes well, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes the seat comes off, sometimes it doesn't.
In the two weeks or so since the purchase, my wife hasn't been able to fold/unfold it successfully even once. To add to that, we pulled it into a playground with sand on the ground, and the sand got in the way of its mechanism, after which it just refused to close or open or even brake. I ended up removing the sand from the wheels and the little wheel holes and the little notches which fix the stroller in open position. Then I used an oil lubricant and applied copious amounts of it to every moving part I could find. That made the operation much better.
The one saving grace is that the little kiddo seems to find it comfortable.
If asked, I would suggest to not go with this halfway priced stroller. Either go with a high priced one, which gives a lot more comfort and options, or go for a low end one, which at least you wont feel bad throwing away if it doesn't work out. This costs quite a bit, but doesn't deliver as much.
Pros:Compact when folded
Cons:Difficult to put together
