Great Stroller for Toddlers
June 29, 2018
I have four children and I have owned MANY strollers. I've had cumbersome, pricey prams (Bugaboo) and less expensive umbrella strollers (Maclaren,) so I feel fairly well versed in strollerhood to review this stroller. Our 4th child turned two just around the time our beloved Inglesina Zippy bit the dust. I had bought it for our 3rd child, 6 years ago, and was trying so hard to have it be our last stroller. No such luck. I think our last trip to Disney put it over the edge. So, I went searching for a stroller with a high weight capacity (lets face it- your 1st grader will still want to sit in a stroller at Disney World) and this City Mini holds up to 65 lbs. I also wanted a one step fold- I'm over having to remove the seat from the base. Lastly, I was looking for something moderately priced because, well, I have 4 kids ;) This stroller fit all of my requirements. I love the fold, push and the fact that my 2 year old can get in and out by herself. I had read some concerns online that the stroller is a tipping hazard, but it hasn't been a problem for us (we are careful NOT to hang anything from the handlebar though.) I was worried that the basket would be too small and it's on the smaller side, but larger than an umbrella stroller and easier to get to. It holds my purse/diaper bag, but I certainly couldn't grocery shop with it. Overall, I'd buy it again and I like the Sand/Stone color.
ProsFold, push, maneuverability
ConsNo integrated cup holder
