baby jogger is our ideal stroller
March 16, 2012
we have owned 3 strollers. a graco travel system, a keekaroo karoo (mclaren knock off) and this baby jogger city mini (bought about a month ago). the baby jogger is amazing! the graco was akward, too big, too heavy, and hard to use in tight areas. the keekaroo just didn't have the features we wanted, and was still not that great in tight spaces. however, the baby jogger was more than perfect! the color is more muted (the blue) than in the picture, and isn't shiny like it looks. its really nice, and durable. after a few uses, the front wheel of mine started to squeak, so i send them an email and heard back quickly. after giving them all the stroller info, they send me a new wheel happily, and it solved the problem, best customer service i have ever seen! the new wheel was here within 2 days! the stroller is light, easy to maneuver, easy to fit in tight spaces, great for walks around the neighborhood, or long walks as well as zoo, museum, and even the mall, it fits easily into my trunk, even ontop a case of water, it's so thin! we got the child tray and the parent console. the parent console isn't that great for coffee, starbucks spills everywhere. and the child tray looks like it is too high, but for our 21 month old, he loves this tray! when he sees this stroller, he dances excited and tries to climb in! he has never liked the stroller much untill we bought this one! and for the price, go for it! 33% savings is great! these are almost always full price, and are very hard to find on the cheap. accessories are about 20 bucks/each, and i don't like that you have to buy it all seperate, but its one of the best baby products i have ever owned. sometimes it gets caught on a curb if you don't lift the front much, but it doesn't bother us much. my hubby lOVED the graco we had, but it broke so we went shopping around, and he really was against this stroller because of the price. but after he took the baby for a few walks with it, he admitted it is far superior. we will be getting a glider board when our next baby is born so our older toddler can ride along! the basket is hard to get into, but honestly, i knew that when i bought it. so i won't hold that against them, the new models are easier, but also another 100 bucks. not worth it to me. i unhook the snap on one side and get into it on one side, which helps a lot! its easy to clean, stays very clean and doesn't stain. i was concerned because when folded, the seat part is facing outward, but have had no trouble keeping it clean and wiping it down with a baby wipe when certain toddlers dribble food in it! i wish we had started with this stroller and saved the money we spend on the others! the fold is really easy, and we have no trouble unfolding, it unfolds like a pop-up tent. it is worth every penny! we plan on using it for years because it is very duable.
