Durable, Reliable and a Great Price
I survived NYC MTA buses and subways with this stroller. As soon as I pushed this stroller around the city, heads literally turned and I was stopped by lots of people who had many questions. Normally the attention goes to my daughters, but now it's the stroller, lol. I work full time so its hard for me to make mom friends. This stroller was an ice breaker and I actually made two friends in one day of pushing this stroller around. My daughters are 5 and 2. I have an Uppa Baby Vista 2010 model with rumble seat and board, a Citi Mini single and double, and an umbrella stroller. And now the mother of all strollers, the Britax B-Ready 2017 with ride-on board. Even before my first daughter was born, I was a huge fan of Britax car seats. That was the first thing on our registry. Britax started off as a safety company, and safety is exemplified through their products. When the foam part on one of my car seats was damaged, Britax was easy to reach on the phone and they replaced the faulty part for free. I received it two days after the phone call. Britax has excellent customer service!! Britax B-Ready reminds me of the Uppa Baby Vista shape and a bit functionality wise, but the Britax stroller is more durable. The frame gets scratched easily on the Vista. Britax B-Ready is quick and easy to assemble when you get it. On the Britax B-Ready you can push out the wheels easily which makes cleaning it a breeze. This feature also makes for a nice space saver. If you are in an amusement park and worried about getting the stroller stolen, you can take off as many wheels as desired for a security feature. I tried cleaning the wheels on my Citi Mini single and the metal part rusted. And the seam of the wheel on my Uppa Baby Vista is coming apart. The Britax B-Ready wheels are more of a heavy plastic and fit tightly against the rubber. Britax offers a nice push with these wheels and the stroller is easy to lift over curbs. Also, the stroller is sturdy and you don't have to worry about it tipping over. The stroller handle bar is adjustable. I am 5' and my husband is 5'10" and we can adjust it easily and accordingly which we love. The fabric is durable and Britax offers the stroller in nice bold colors. The fabric on the Britax is stronger than my other strollers. Furthermore, the Britax's inner lining is made using a heavy plastic, unlike Citi Mini which is made with cardboard inside. How your stroller is manufactured is extremely important. For example, if your child spills something in the stroller, you do not want cardboard inside your stroller. The Britax B-Ready stroller reclines nicely and provides great back support for my growing baby. My two year old sleeps so comfortably in this stroller. I like how you can add a second seat,bassinet, or a car seat onto the Britax B-Ready stroller and make it a double. It has many different configurations which is important, especially when you have two children. A first time mom can purchase this stroller confidently that should they have another child in the future they can buy a second seat later on rather than a whole new stroller. I do not have a second seat yet, but I've seen it, and it looks excellent. It's hard to shop having a side by side double stroller. I dread going through doors. So double stacked is wayyyyy better. I love having the option of which way to turn my child(ren), including facing each other. For me it's important for at least the first year that my baby faces me in the stroller. It's bonding time and they don't talk, so you need to see cues. Also when your kids start to eat you want to face them and Britax has a really cute snack tray for the stroller. My 5 year old loved the ride on the board and how she is leveled with the handle bar which she holds on to. It was a bit tricky to assemble the board part. I liked how Britax makes this out of plastic so you can easily wash it off. A lot of boards are usually made out of wood and that over time if a child steps in something funky one day it can lead to a hard to get out odor / stain on the board. I wish the fold was a bit tighter on this stroller, but you can fold it with the seat still attached which is good and especially needed if you traveling via bus. See the picture of how you can pull it (not fully recommend by the company, but it works. I'm using the mommy mitt for less wear and tear on the handle bar when I do this). The stroller has nice pockets and the bottom basket on the stroller is soooo big and nice. And I love how the canopy is shaped and has a lip and it's opening part on top to glance at child when there are facing out is magnetic; not annoying velcro. Overall, this Britax B-Ready stroller definitely stands up to it's name and is ready for a good trip with your children. If you're deciding between the Britax B-Ready stroller and the Uppa Baby Vista, definitely go with the Britax B-Ready. It's wayyy cheaper and made more durable from a company that has excellent customer service and is known for safety. I received this stroller for free in exchange for my honest review. All other strollers mentioned, I purchased on my own previously and Britax B-Ready is now my favorite! I am very honest, so if you have any questions about the stroller you can ask me too.
