We absolutely love this! ❤️❤️❤️
August 12, 2020
Ordering was simple and the price was affordable. Delivery came a day early and assembly was quick and easy. This stroller is AWESOME! The ride was so smooth and my 2 yes old LOVES the parent facing position. It’s comfortable, sturdy easy to operate. I love that it reclines pretty much flat in with front-facing or parent-facing position and the huge hood is absolutely delightful. Covers baby completely in any position. Definitely highly recommend this brand and product Going to gift one to my nephew who’s expecting soon!

Love it! We purchased this stroller as a second for grandparents home... use it for infant now when we are not near the crib or the baby just doesn’t want to be held all day when outback poolside. Rolls well, love the reversible positions and head incline options. Only comment would be the handles are slightly turned inward making it a tad narrow when placing baby in or out but still well worth the money!

This certainly is worth the dollar amount we paid for it. Well made, rolls easy, even in grass, light weight so easy to carry when not in use. The storage compartment is small under the seat and a little hard to get to, but when we don't use the lay down feature, there is room behind the seat.

I bought this stroller thought a compact stroller would be convenient. Its was on sale and for the price it is well worth it. The only complaint is folding it, one of the mechanisms gets stuck and its kind of annoying. Other than that its a great little stroller.
  • Very large canopy. Baby can face you or face foward.

Fantastic stroller with some silly flaws
May 16, 2020
I bought this stroller as a second to my 3 wheeled jogging stroller that is quite bulky. I needed a more compact stroller, as we travel quite often for older children's athletics and spend countless hours at the ball fields or in gyms, but one that would still be sturdy and comfortable. This far it has met those expectations and for the price, it's an easy sell. The canopy is large and easily shades the entire stroller, which is incredibly helpful for those sunny days spent at the ball fields. Naps are a breeze in this stroller with both forward and rear facing options. My only real complaint is opening and closing. It's difficult to do, and maybe I'm missing something, or possibly because it's relatively new and not broken in yet, but it's a handed job for sure. Overall, I can't complain. Definitely satisfied with this stroller.
  • Large canopy. Forward and rear facing options. Tall handles. Maneuvers easily with one hand. And tge recline options are great.
  • Opening and closing are definitely tricky!

Great Multi-use Stroller
April 23, 2020
So far this stroller is what We were looking for to get us to and from simple distances. The handles are tall (maybe a little too tall for me at 5’5”), and seems to roll through town navigating the streets to sidewalks. We walk into town with the sunshine behind us, reposition toddler in the other side of the stroller on the way back so son is not in his eyes.
Stroller pushes better then some, but does not glide. The two was design is a brilliant design. The leg room from back of seat to end of stroller is perfect for my toddler- not sure it would be enough for a big kid. The storage under is difficult to get to, but will hold a couple diapers, snack, water bottle and a change of clothes for baby.

So far we really like the stroller. The way it folds takes some getting used to and we are hoping the seat back holds up over time and use. The stroller was very easy to put together. It’s a really fun color and seems comfy for my 1 1/2 year old. Excited to use it more and love how compact it is for keeping in our vehicle.

Verified Buyer
Convenient with a few technical issues
February 22, 2020
Love the size, rear facing option, adjustable footrest in rear facing, handle height for tall parents, large canopy, and ease of pushing. There are a few things I don't love. Right out of the box, the canopy is difficult to tell which way to attach it, and yes, it matters. It's also very difficult to force to clip on. Once that's tackled it becomes apparent that the tight packaging puts so much pressure on the canopy with how it's folded and crammed inside, that the shape is distorted and leans to one side. Some heavy handed bending and squeezing in the needed places can bring the shape somewhat back to center but the problem is still visible. This stroller is very difficult to open and close. Opening takes a lot of force, and closing additionally requires a second step. Neither of these operations is a one handed task. This is definitely the most difficult to operate stroller I've ever used, and that's speaking from 5 of my own kids and 18 years of home childcare. There have been many strollers to compare to. From baby's comfort standpoint, the straps are initially set at the largest possible setting, which uses all the slack and makes the initial sizing adjustments difficult and time consuming because the clips are attached with the double through strap configuration. Once baby is in and secure, the angle of the back rest only comes up as far as semi reclined. For older babies, over a year maybe, this may not be an issue because they can pull themselves forward to sit up without the backrest. And for very young babies that prefer to lay down this won't be a problem either. However, for babies in that middle zone, maybe 4 months to 1 year, that would like to sit up and look around, but can't yet support themselves with the stroller movement and bumps, this forces them to balance on their tailbone while their hips slump out from under them. This is not a sound sitting position and time spent sitting like this should be limited to very short sessions. There is also no padding under the seat. So as baby gets wider, their. Hips and outer thighs will be sitting directly on the bars of the frams that run under the seat. My baby is too small for this to be a problem yet, but I expect it will require some kind of additional padding at some point. Another place where baby's comfort is affected is the shoulder straps. They are set close together, which is perfect for little babies. However the material chosen is extremely abrasive. In the rear facing position, this has been addressed with shoulder pads. They work fine. However, in the forward facing position there are no pads and in order to move the pads from the back, the entire strap system has to be disassembled. This is not an easy task in this stroller and the issue could've been addressed by making the supplied covers removable by Velcro or snap. My 8 month old baby seated in the forward facing seat sustained significant friction burns on his neck from these straps. Additional strap covers will have to be purchased to make this seat usable. The basket is very small and only accessable from the front. This works for a diaper, a pack of wipes, and a water bottle, but isn't going to fit a diaper bag, not even a small one. When folding there a few issues. In addition to the force and second step needed to fold, the fabric from the sides gets caught up in the latch, preventing it from locking into place without extra deatil work. Also, if you fold it forward in itself instead of lifting the front wheels up with your other hand, the canopy and top of the front seat will press all the way into the ground. This gets dirt, mud, parking lot much, whatever, right where baby puts their head. Also be aware that this stroller folds into a wide v shape, not flat. So it requires an awkward amount of space in the trunk. Also worth noting, although minor, the brakes work a little oddly. Instead of being a step on, lift off procedure, these are a step in, kick off. You need to firmly kick the top of the lever forward to release the brakes. In closed toed shoes this is no problem, but if you wear sandles or flip flops often it will take some practice to figure out how you can kick this release hard enough to operate it without jamming your toes. Overall this stroller is just fine for quick trips from the car to pick up other kids from school, maybe a walk around the block, a brief shop through a department store, etc. This is not going to be your main stroller, one that you'll use for long walks, grocery shopping, a day trip to the mall, or a place for baby to sit through a siblings sports game. And be prepared to make additional purchases to make this seat comfortable for baby, including additional strap covers and seat padding.

Great Umbrella Stroller!
February 17, 2020
This is a great little umbrella stroller, and the parent facing mode with a click of a button is genius! The canopy is HUGE, and the footrest is moveable so my son can nap comfortably. My only complaint is that it’s hard to fold and unfold, and if you have anything hanging from the handles, it will tip over once you remove your child. So my parent console with my coffee, and water in it spilled everywhere when I removed my son. Other than that, no complaints! Especially for the price!

This actually a very very nice stroller the only reason I’m giving it av4 stars is for two reasons 1 it is very difficult to open. And 2 the straps for buckling in baby have loose straps after adjusting them and there’s no where to put them safely. Thy part is very disappointing for the money though you won’t find a better made stroller

A reversible lightweight stroller
July 11, 2019
I ordered it since my previous umbrella stroller is very hard to push and change direction. I quickly set it up and this stroller is light and very easy to move around. I feel that I won't need the seat to face backward since I mostly use it for kid not infant. It took me a while to figure out how to unfold it. You need to step on a switch on the back frame which is not very obvious to me until I watched youtube vide. Overall, it is a lightweight umbrella stroller with nice maneuverability and can be brought to airplane.

Hard to fold
May 12, 2019
I wouldn’t have bought this stroller again. It’s extremely hard to fold/unfold. Not worth the struggle. The positive is it has a very large sum canopy (why I purchased it). Our main stroller is by the same brand - the city select - which we love. Also wished it had a larger and easier to access basket underneath to hold items.

3rd time’s a charm
April 13, 2019
after three different strollers, we found this one to be the perfect overall. We love how it flips the seat to a forward or reverse facing with just a pull of a lever. It lies almost completely flat, which is also a bonus for a sleeping infant. And did I mention that the canopy is HUGE? Fold up easy and even has a nice little spot to put your purse when the seat is in forward facing position.

Only one con and that is that is took us quite a bit of time to figure out how to fully use this. Not too much of an issue though, thanks to YouTube!

best Parent (rear) facing umbrella stroller option
March 13, 2019
There is no "perfect" stroller... just one that is "best" (checks most boxes) for each family/individual.
we own a nice (Thule) jogging stroller which is a must due to moderately frequent fitness, and environment (rural gravel/dirt driveway). However for traveling, navigating cities, a long jogging stroller (even if not heavy) doesn't work well. Thus my search for a lightweight or umbrella stroller began.
Our child was just over a year when we needed such an option and as much as I love the Thule Urban Glide ---it, and all other off-road/all-terrain jogging stroller options do NOT offer a rear-facing/parent-facing option (very disappointing!). Many friends have/love the City Select so I knew the Baby Jogger brand. The Vue is one of very few (short of buying another full size stroller like Ergobaby 180 or 2018 (redesigned) Baby Jogger City Tour Lux) umbrella strollers offering a rear-facing/parent facing option.
Basically it came down to this or Urbini Reversi (sold only online at Walmart) which I wasn't sure quality wise would hold up (and also wouldn't fold in rear/parent facing mode). Even with the known flaws (basket size & accessibility) and unknown (folding nightmare) - being that the cost is currently (2019) equal btwn the 2 options I had narrowed down to, I still think this was the better choice for us.
  • (1) lightweight.
  • (2) really fantastic (large!) sun canopy
  • (3) rear/parent facing mode is awesome! very "nap" friendly
  • (4) easy to navigate
  • (5) small footprint/size
  • (6) neutral colors (more than just black/grey) without obnoxious characters.
  • (7) easy break (though can be a pain on stairs)
Best Uses
  • city terrain - sidewalks, etc.
  • short trips into stores, museums, etc.
  • crowded areas (malls)
  • traveling
  • (1) Folding is HARD. it's not easy and it's also NOT COMPACT. and doesn't self stand
  • (2) forward facing is a VERY SHORT seat (i.e. may not work for many older kids in strollers (3+)
  • (3) basket is small and somewhat difficult to access...but I was aware/knew and okay with when purchased.
  • (4) no cup holder (parent or child)
  • (5) I wouldnt expect this of ANY umbrella stroller but worth noting that handlebars are NOT adjustable. it does comfortably fit many people though ranging from 5'3" - 6'3", without having to stoop.
