great it!!!!
February 26, 2012
This is by far the best stroller, out of the 50 I must have had purchased with having kids. Its so compact, lightweight, and easy to push than any other stroller. My 2 year old loves it, and used to climb out of her other stroller, this one she does not. I can't say enough great things about this stroller. I wish I had purchased it a long time ago instead of wasting a lot of money on heavy bulky strollers that were not only impossible to get in and out of the car but were hard to push. The only complaint i would say i have with this stroller is the underneath basket is more underneath the stroller, so you can't really fit a diaper bag or your bag to get to it. But i just got the Mommy hook and it just hangs right off the handle no problem.I would definitely recommend this stroller to anyone having a baby....and it comes in a bunch of great colors!!!!My favorite part of all is the 1 hand fold, other strollers say it has one hand fold but I've had my 2 year old in my arms and can fold this right up!!!!
  • lightweight
  • sturdy
  • super easy to fold
  • Colors
  • you can buy great accessories, snack tray,cup holders
  • underneath basket
  • have to unstrap a bunch of things to recline, but not a huge problem.

We have two other strollers and this one is by far the best. More practicality, more comfort, handles very very well, folds up with one hand. When the sun is out the top folds down all the way so as to avoid sun in the babies eyes. We just bought a personal item holder to hold keys, mace, and a drink. We also bought the baby bar for the babies drink. We all prefer to use this stroller over the two others.
  • Sturdiness

This is an excellent stroller. Very easy to fold and store. Very light to push as well. We love this stroller! Please note that this is not a true fuchsia color. It is more like a red. Still very pretty, but not as feminine as we first thought from the picture. I would definitely recommend this stroller to everyone!
  • One hand collapse and store, easy to push

I have the city mini double and just purchased this single. I love both strollers. The kids seem comfortable, easy to fold, and with a few accessories its good to go. I live in a semirural area and this is great on trails too. I strongly recommend the parent tray. I also have the cooler which is fabulous for trips to the mall etc. The kids grab their snacks from it and I feel slightly less like a pack mule.

Great, with a few problems.

Overall, I love the stroller. It pushes and fold easily, great sunshade. However, within a month of receiving my new stroller the front wheels would not turn. The wheel lock would get stuck. I called Baby Jogger and they quickly sent a new wheel assembly. A couple days later one of the fabric tabs for holding the shoulder harness broke. I am disappointed that within 2 months I had two broken parts, for a stroller that was lightly used. I really like the stroller, just disappointed by the quality.

I just bought this to replace my MAc Quest which is a nice umbrella stroller but I need a sturdier stroller. I love how stable and nice it pushes with my large toddler in it. The fold is absolutely one handed, in and out of the car which is nice with 2 kids. It is easy to push one handed since it has a bar handle. The sunshade is absolutely the best hands down. MY son loves his pink stroller and his feet cannot dangel down into the wheels. LOVE!

Great lightweight stroller!

We purchased this stroller when our 1 yr old grandson became too large for the stroller we had - the shoulder width of that stroller was too narrow. Our daughter had this stroller and we loved how easy it was to fold and open - just grab the strap located within the base of the seat and pull upward. Very simple. The sun shade has three positions with viewing windows that make it easy to keep an eye on baby. The fully extended position of the shade offers the best coverage we've seen yet the child can still see ahead. The seat seems very comfortable and wide, and it reclines easily. The safety straps are easily adjustable as the baby grows. Maneuverability is great with nice large wheels to cushion bumps. There is nothing complicated about this stroller.
  • Collapses and opens with ease
  • Lightweight
  • Great sun shade
  • Comfort
  • Maneuverability
  • No storage compartments built into the handle
  • Handle does not have height adjustment

I didn't know i needed this kind of stroller until i tried this one out. i saw a Citi Mini while my partner was pregnant, I liked the style immediately. Once i maneuvered it through the store it was a done deal. living in the city you need a flexible stroller, the swivel front wells makes getting through crowds easy. The collapsible frame is fantastic. it as worth the price. Also, GREAT order to delivery time, WOW! I ordered early Monday and received Tuesday with free shipping. Thanks, satisfied Customer..

This is a great stroller. Easy to fold up and get into car, even while holding an active toddler. Super lightweight. The straps are easy to adjust, which is a such a relief. I take this stroller everywhere. I even walk/jog in the park. This stroller makes my life easier.I like the color. It is a dark fuchsia, but it does not look red. This would not be the color to choose if you were having a boy. It is definitely fuchsia. But for a little girl, it's great. I didn't get this stroller until my sweet pea turned one. I wish I would have gotten one sooner. I started off with a graco metrolight (which was bulky and more difficult to fold up) and a baby trend jogging stroller (the front wheel shook violently in the unlocked position whether I was walking or jogging). I've since gotten rid of both.
  • lightweight
  • easy to fold up
  • great sun shade
  • easy to adjust straps
  • smooth ride for my baby, swivel wheel does not shake
  • easy to maneuver
  • You can't beat the price for this model!
  • no cup holders, all accessories sold separately
  • basket is a little small

So far, the Baby Jogger City Mini has been a ideal stroller. I use it daily and my daughter loves it. She is very comfortable (at 5 months) both upright & reclined. The stroller is easy to "drive" and easy to close and store.

  • Easy to open & close.

  • Super large canopy keeps baby out of the sun & wind.

I have 3 kids and with my 2nd we bought the Baby Jogger double and I was hooked. I had to get the single then and am so glad I did. The canopy coverage is amazing and completely adjustable to different levels including full coverage to protect from the sun while still allowing baby to see out - mom can also peek in with the window on top. The seat fully reclines, but you can adjust to any position and not set levels. The fold is so easy and compact and not super heavy to pull out of my trunk. Easy to maneuver even with one hand. I really like the color and the only drawback is hard to get to the basket underneath. The quality is great - very strong and an amazing price. Quick delivery, too. I wish I knew about this stroller with my 1st child - definitely recommend.
  • Easy to fold and compact, great quality, canopy coverage, reclining seat

I have gone through a few strollers & this is the best! The best part is the hood of the stroller. I can pull it down almost all the way which keeps almost all the sun out. The color is definitely more red than fushia.

After getting a cheap travel system and taking the stroller for a spin on the bike paths by our house and fighting it the whole way, I realized I needed something that was less bulky, lighter, and just easier to manuever. The City Mini is awesome!! The way it folds up is incredible and it glides on the path like a dream!! Very happy with my purchase. The color is definitely RED, not fuchsia, any mommies considering this stroller should buy it.

Bought a City Mini double stroller after our second was born. Love it so much that we bought a single stroller too. Wish we hadn't messed around with all the other strollers we have and bought these first. Love them. Easy to collapse, gets small, sturdy, turns on a dime, easy to push (even one handed), and great amount of sun protection. Only con is access to the underneath. We usually hang the diaper bag off the handle though (but because of the design, it won't dump the stroller once you take out the forward weight like our heftier umbrella stroller would).
  • Turning, pushing, collapsing is all easy. Great sun shade and reclines all the way.
  • Storage access

This is such a great stroller. We got it for my husband since he does a lot of power walking and needed a good stroller to push the baby in. He was a little confused by our other stroller, which is the whole travel system. But the Baby Jogger City Mini folds easily by just picking it up by the strap that says "fold here". The color of the stroller is perfect for our daughter and it rides so smooth. The canopy opens so far for excellent sun protection. We love this stroller.

Great stroller for travel & every day use.
March 27, 2012
We love our City Mini! We used a double when our boys were younger and just purchased the single for our daughter. It is easy to maneuver, a great size for every day use but comfortable enough for travel and longer journeys around town. It is not a true jogging stroller but is sufficient for light jogs on paved surfaces. Other reviewers comment on the size of the basket underneath but we find it plenty large for the essentials and a few extras you might pick up along the way. I LOVE the ease of folding and unfolding - no buttons, levers, anything. Just pull and go. Despite many reviews that the fuchsia color is more red, I feel it is more raspberry - very pretty for a girl but not shockingly pink which my husband would hate. It definitely looks feminine to me. I do recommend getting the parent console to go with it so you have cup holders and a place for keys, phone, etc.
  • Easy to maneuver
  • Sufficient storage
  • VERY easy to fold and unfold
  • Nice aesthetics
  • Slightly bigger wheels would make it a big more all-terrain.
  • Should come standard with a cup-holder

Great deal on a stroller
March 22, 2012
My husband and I got this for our first child. We bought the piece that allows us to attach our Chicco infant car seat and it works like a charm. The stroller is really simple to open and close. We've taken quite a few walks outside with the baby and enjoyed ourselves. The stroller is on the pricey side despite the sale but I think it's a good investment. The only thing that isn't great is that it's hard to fit it in our small car (Toyota).
  • ease of opening and closing

I just love this stroller I wish I would have gotten it when my baby was first born. He is now 18 months. He climbs in it like a pro and it doesn't tip over!! I love the HUGE canopy!! And I'm in love with the quick fold omg how much easier can u get and to open is a snap too. I LOVE the fact that u can hang ur diaper bag or whatever on the handle and it does not tip over when I take my son out of the stroller. Plus, it's soooo light weight. I'm just in love with this stroller. Yes it's more of a reddish color but I still love it. Oh I also love the fact that u can change the strap height really easy cause it's just a clasp that u take off and put back on it's awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I bought this stroller shortly before traveling with my daughter, flying for the first time just her and I.. No help from dad. This stroller is great! It's lightweight, is truly one handed to set up, very easy to maneuver, and the shade is great to keep sun out of her eyes. The one gripe I have is here's no cup holder for mom or baby. I purchased the baby jogger brand console for mom that's holds snacks and a drink but its made of mesh and doesn't sit exactly even, which leads to spills when you're going over rough terrain. I haven't yet bought he child snack holder as she doesn't seem she wants or needs it. And when I flew with her, the or hand 'pull here' strap to fold it down is truly one handed- baby in one arm, stroller folded by the other! Over all, love this stroller!
  • Easy set up/ fold down

This stroller is the best. Super lightweight and very maneuverable(even one handed). I just took this on an airplane and it even fit through security. My only complaint is that it doesn't come with or have a better cup hold option for the handle. I purchased the kid tray and it's perfect. I have a petite 12 month old and she can reach the tray an even see over it.

I like many other reviewer's have owned tons of strollers (with 4 kids I had no choice!) but this one is by far my favorite! I understand other's disatisfaction with the storage basket but I think it helps keep items in when folding, compared to my other joggers when I folded them things flew out all the time! My only complaint is the color, its such a dark fuschia that like everyone has said before, its practically red. But I love its style, manuverability, size and that is sooo light but not a "little" stroller, plus I received it the day after I bought it!

January 17, 2012
I love the stroller. The seat reclines completely flat for napping and the canopy is really big and covers the baby completely. It pushes easily and is very quick to fold. My ONLY complaint is that my daughter, who is one and in the 50th percentile for her age, can not easily reach the tray! The tray sits WAY too high on this stroller. She'll probably be 1 1/2 before she can easily reach the tray to eat her snacks. I never read this complaint once which is strange because my daughter is pretty average height and other people must have experienced this issue too. And since snacking is a huge part of her day, we are only using this stroller for short walks.
  • Easy to push and the recline and canopy features are awesome!
  • The snack tray sits WAY too high up!

Per the other review, the color is more red than fushia and I purchased it for that reason. You can't beat this price. I LOVE this stroller and I can steer the stroller effortlessly for a heavy 5 year old. I can push the stroller with one hand even on grass, sand, or light gravel surfaces. My daughter loves the fully recline seats, big canopy to shield her from the sun and the window on the canopy...she calls it 'sunroof'.

Best Stroller Ever

After moving on from my initial stroller (that went with the initial car seat) I tried quite a few other strollers, each one disappointing our family in one way or another. This stroller is pure heaven. Love the colors-pink, but with black so it doesn't get dirty. Comfy for my lil one (which really is most important) letting her sit up nice and high or lie down and nap! Durable! One foot brake/release. Turns on a dime. The best part is that it is easily operated with one hand, closes like a charm (LOVE this part!!!) and takes up almost no room in my trunk! Wish I had seen this stroller sooner! When the next bundle comes we will definitely be purchasing this in a double stroller!

I have now owned 7 single pushchairs (I know I should see someone about my habbit!!!) , and this ranks as my number 2 all time favourite. Only beaten to the numberone spot by my teutonia spirit but the city mini is absolutely fabulous for quick trips to the shops or for travel. It folds so small, has plenty of space for my growing todler. The hood is fantastic (I rarely bother with the rain cover) and the two peep windows mean you can still see your toddler regardless of how far folded the hood is. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a robust but light weight compact stroller. I also use it wit hthe glidder board occasionally for my older child to hitch a ride on the back. Superb product.

This is our 4th stroller. Our other umbrella stoller was compact but the straps seems to dig into my daughters' diaper area. I wanted something that was small enough to keep in the car but comfortable for my daughter to sit in for trips to the mall, etc. This stroller is very lightweight- you can easily push with one hand. Also it is the easiest to fold up- you just pull the strap and it is folded. The only small complaint I have is that the bottom storage is very small and hard to reach from the back. I have to put things in from the side.

This stroller is awesome. I bought and returned 2 other lightweight strollers prior to purchasing this one because I was trying to take the "cheap way out." This stroller is worth every penny--it's a jogger and lightweight combined. I've been pushing it all over the neighborhood and it's a smooth ride for my baby. I also had it on grass/dirt last weekend at a fall festival and it was great there, too. The price that Albee has is wonderful; I researched this stroller for a long time and no one else can even come close to the price. Plus, Albee shipped this to me in less than 24 hours. I am 5'5" and my husband is 6' and it's a good height. If you purchase this stroller, you will not be disappointed.

July 16, 2011
Just received the stroller today....I like all the features of the city mini... I was going to buy the purple one, but when I was about to buy it and started searching for it, found out they had this limited edition of Black/Fuchsia. Although I didn't found it at this site first, I started to compare different online stores. Lucky me, found ALBEE BABY had it on sale.... Can't beat this price. Although, the only thing I dislike is that the color is not actually Fuchsia or Hot Pink like the picture, is like a darker pink almost red. But like I said, for city mini for this price and 2011 model, never seen it elsewhere. Plus Free Shipping and no sales tax.Another thing, I'm about 5' 5" and the hand bar is kinda high, so I thing it can be comfortable for taller people.
