I bought this stroller a year ago. I live on the third floor of a building, and initially thought it's a great product because it was extremely easy to fold with one hand, and was very lightweight to carry up and down the stairs with a child. My daughter was happy to sleep in it during our long walks, and I was happy since it was very easy to maneuver, and I couldn't imagine how I "survived" with my older kid riding a 4-wheel stroller. Fast forward 5 months, when my daughter didn't want to simply lay in it, but rather seat up and enjoy the surroundings. This stroller completely lacks the back support for sitting position, my daughter's back was arched all the time (because the back of the stroller is made of a cheap, cardboard-like material) and you cannot increase the inclination above 50 degrees. Plus, the back harness slides down easily, with one side more than the other, so my daughter is constantly squeezed in one size of the stroller, and I have to adjust her position all the time, and give up after some time, flatten the back and MAKE my daughter lay in while I run to get home ASAP so that she doesn't start screaming from boredom. Then came winter, we didn't go out in the stroller much, and whenever we did, she was sleeping in it, so it was fine. UNTIL recently, with the coming of spring, when we go out for supposedly nice walks. With the stroller I had also bought a tray (although I hated the idea of buying everything separately when most other strollers have it as a bundle). A week ago, I decided to use the tray for snacks, and that was the critical, boiling point for my anger, and I decided to leave this feedback, so people know what they'll be going through if they buy this stroller, or for the manufacturer to consider changing: This tray hangs in the air SO HIGH, as if it has nothing to do with the stroller. My daughter is a pretty big 1 year old, and the tray is almost as high in the air as her head in sitting (alas, semi-sitting) position. Also, since she is not in a normal position, she is struggling to reach something in the tray, moving the back of the stroller with her back and forth, but then gravity does her job, the seat pulls her back, and the struggle for snack goes on And when she eventually gives up, and rests her head on the stroller, the back harness slides down from her weight, and don't forget, only on one side, and her head is stuck in one corner. I finally gave up, and bought a cheap umbrella stroller, so that we can go on normal walks without torturing my kid, and without going crazy myself. So all in all, VERY dissatisfied with the product, especially after paying so much for it AND the accessories separately.
