Great stroller
May 11, 2015
I really like this stroller, but the basket is SO hard to get to. It pushes great for an umbrella. I've owned for several years now, and it still works great.

Loved It
June 19, 2012
It was a steel. I felt lucky to purchase a great product for a good price.
  • Easy to carry and when my daughter falls asleep she will be able to lie flat in the stroller.
  • In the beginning it was difficult to fold.

Great City Stroller
June 15, 2012
I love this stroller for quick trips around the city. I own a BOB, and Bugaboo and prefer to use the Britax while in NYC. Light enough to carry with child down stairs. As in some other reviews, when folded the wheels can dirty up the canopy, but this hasn't been a huge issue. Great stroller especially at the sale price!
  • lightweight
  • easy to maneuver
  • looks nice

Great everyday stroller!
June 12, 2012
Bought this stroller as a lightweight but it has become my go-to choice. Good storage, good recline, decent canopy, comfortable to push and my daughter is happy to ride in it. All in all I am very happy with this stroller and use it every single day. It is great as a general purpose workhorse stroller, and is also pretty easy to travel with. Thumbs up!!
  • -good storage
  • -comfortable seat (my tall 9-month-old is happy even on our longest walks)
  • -decent storage
  • -canopy window
  • -adjustable recline (not to flat but far enough to get a good nap)
  • -lightweight
  • -good steering
  • -good harness
  • -very easy folding and unfolding
  • -latch for folded position doesn't really work (bit of a pain for putting in and out of trunk, especially when holding a crying baby)
  • -handles are a bit short (I sometimes kick the back when I'm in a hurry. I'm 5'9", but my 6' husband doesn't have any problem, so it might just be my proportions)
  • -canopy is large but somehow the wrong shape or angle to get maximum sun coverage (often put a blanket on the end of it for more shade)
  • -wheels feel a bit wobbly and not totally sturdy, but this has never actually been a problem yet (even on grass or gravel) so might just be more of a "feel" thing

Best Umbrella Stroller
May 5, 2012
We absolutely LOVE this stroller. After many trips to stores all over central Florida, and searching/researching online for weeks, I settled on this one because of the portabiity and size. I am a frequent visitor to the local theme parks, as we have passes to Disney parks, Sea World parks (incl Busch) and also Silver Springs, and we have a 6 year old whos legs get tired during the day so mainly just for resting his legs. This stroller right out of the box impressed me with the size of it! The handles are HIGH, which is awesome for, even though I'm 5"4, most umbrella strollers force me to walk bent forward and im always stepping on the brakes. LOL! Not with this baby! The wheels are much larger than a regular umprella stroller also which is great for not getting stuck. My son fits in it with plenty of room to spare, not crowded at all, and everything adjusts to your child to make them comfortable. I would recommend this stoller 100%.
  • Size, durability, stability, look/print, tires, comes with storage bag, height of handles, confortable for child and parent, reclines, leg rest adjusts to put straight out of bend down.
  • No cupholders, but we got add on ones that work just fine.

Great umbrella stroller
April 12, 2012
Love it. Smooth ride. Folds and opens easily. Intuitive. Not too heavy. Can throw it over shoulder with the strap and carry baby in other arm as needed. Good height for me 5'8" and hubby 6'0". Only issue is that basket is small and hard to access. But can toss a blanket or jacket in there. Perfect for shopping and getting around the city. Otherwise we use our bigger britax b-ready for long walks.

Love my stroller!!!

I have been searching all over for the perfect umbrella stroller, and I finally found it! It was a great price, fully reclines, light weight, and the shade it good too! I am so happy with my purchase and have been telling everyone how great the stroller is! The only thing I wish it had was a cup holder. But those are easily fixable and I will be purchasing one soon for my stroller.

Sometimes it sticks when I'm trying to fold it but otherwise easy to open and close. Only complaints are the lack of cup holder & the brake is quite light so has lifted up on its own a coup,e of times.

Great Buy!
March 1, 2012
I am a recently licensed foster parent, so I bought this stroller knowing that I would be using it for different children of different ages. It arrived with very little assembly necessary; has been easy to collapse and throw in the trunk; appears a comfortable ride for the little ones; and is easy to maneuver. The biggest draw, for us, was the height of the handles. At 6' 6", my husband can comfortably push the Britax Blink around for extended periods of time without having to bend over or strain his back. I love the "window" in the top that allows Mommy and baby to see one another. And there is ample storage in the basket underneath. I researched top brands and found that this was comparable to the McClaren, but at a much better price. I wouldn't have paid extra for the "Cowmooflage" pattern, but since it was on sale, it is cute.
  • Height of Stroller Handles
  • Plenty of Storage in Basket Under Stroller
  • Window in Canopy
  • Easy to Collapse
  • Holds Child up to 55lbs.
  • Seat Fully Reclines
  • Great Price
  • No Cup Holders (I bought some to attach; problem solved)

Cross-over Stroller
February 17, 2012
We had a little trouble figuring out the protectors that cover the joints of where the stroller bends but we called the Britax hotline on the enclosed paperwork and a very patient representative talked us through it over the phone. Otherwise it has been a great lil' stroller to use. We have not used it outside much - mainly inside the mall and big department stores. The stroller is the size of an umbrella stroller but has the comfort of a regular bulky one. I wish I had found this one alot sooner. We have been through many strollers over the last 2 yrs and our daughter is almost too big now for this one, which is the only disappointment - but when we were shopping around, we noticed the max weight is 5 lbs more the average for this type of stroller so more bonus points for the blink.
  • Stroller is compact
  • Price - affordable
  • Very comfortable and roomy for an umbrella stroller
  • Steering is great
  • Britax Customer Service Representative - top notch and knowledgable
  • initial set-up of those covers mentioned above was a small hassle

Great Stroller

Stroller came in today, looks good, went to the mall to test it out. What a great stroller. It fit perfect in the trunk of my car with room to spare. Easy to fold and unfold. Pushes with ease, maneuvers with ease, what a great stroller. Do not have really anything negative to say about the stroller. Had checked out other strollers and this is by far one of the best.
  • Lightweight, sturdy, looks really good quality a plus.
  • no cup holder

Awesome Stroller!
December 20, 2011
I got these for my nephews! They love these strollers because when we are out and about we can recline the seat back and they are very comfortable to nap! They are lightweight and easy to open and close! I also love that I can fit these in my trunk with room to spare! They are a better deal than the competitor's design and a much better price too!
  • It's lightweight
  • It has great turn making capability
  • The strollers handles are high so it's less stress on my back
  • Great basket space
  • Better Deal than competitors version!
  • cup holders not included
One of our best investments

I absolutely love this stroller. We brought it to Disney World for our 2 year old daughter. She didn't want to leave it! It is easy to maneuver and I love that the handles are a little taller than the typical umbrella stroller. The carry bag is a little bit of a pain, but the stroller was worth every penny.
Very nice stroller, good price!

it is really nice stroller, comfortable to push, my tall husband has no problems with it. I love the zip bag behind for a little things like keys, phone etc... Basket is a good size too. and I love that it reclines to almost flat position - My daughter can sleap in it really comfortable.The only bad thing about it is that when u fold the stroller, the tires are making the inside of the canopy dirty. It is easy to clean it, just something for Britax to consider in the future...I research maclaren strollers, and I really think Britax is no worse and for much better price!
  • easy to push, zip bag in the back, large basket, nice extension for the legs, it reclines almost to flat position.
  • When you fold the stroller tires are making the inside of the canopy dirty.

Consider this...
May 17, 2010
I received this stroller just 2 months ago and I like it except for 3 small problems. Before you purchase consider this... 1.Stoller tipps over easily. Don't hang anything on the handles.2. The seat back moves foward with your child when they lean foward.3. The foot rest is very close to the front wheels and some children can touch their feet to the ground easily like my 2 1/2 year old.

I just received this stroller today and I am already in love with it. The carrying handle makes transporting this stroller a breeze and the canopy is very large compared to other strollers I have had. I can't wait to use this stroller on vacation!!!
