Worth the Price!!
September 24, 2018
After going back and forth for weeks on purchasing this stroller, I finally budged and ordered it! We also have a BOB revolution that we have used for a couple years -- and I love the smooth ride and durability of the BOB. However, our 1 year old son has Down syndrome and lower muscle tone and the BOB does not sit up straight even when it is in the highest position. It also does not fully recline. Hence the reason I was on the hunt for a new system. Stroller is VERY easy to put together and I love the look of it! My little man also loves his new stroller and since we are due with baby #3 in 2 months this option works GREAT as we can buy additional attachments to accommodate up to 3 kids. The frame is extremely sturdy and well built. It folds up easy and isn't quite as bulky as our BOB. The underneath basket is HUGE -- I can fit my large purse, blankies, and diaper bag and still have room for additional items if needed.
We really put this stroller to the test this past weekend when we had a step up for Ds walk that was over 3 miles. The route was a mix of walking trails (both paved and unpaved), strolling through park grass, and rougher terrain including hills/etc. The stroller did great and was easy to navigate through all. I would say I like our BOB for more of the off-road and bumpy terrain -- but I did not expect this stroller to go as smoothly as it did.
For anyone wondering, additional attachments are extra. This set up includes the toddler seat, bug shield, rain shield, carrying bag, and bassinet. So if you are looking to use the toddler seat and bassinet at same time you will need the upper/lower adapters depending on the configuration that you want. The cup holder and parent organizing attachment are extra. For the price of the stroller and the items it comes with (bassinet, shields, etc) I I think it is well worth it and don't have any issues ordering additional parts separate.
Also -- FREE & fast shipping. Since Albee baby is out of New York there was no tax charged on stroller which is SUPER nice!!!
My only complaints would be that Albee baby require you to sign for the package when UPS drops off. I understand due to the high cost that they require adult signature....but I wasn't available during the times our UPS driver came to deliver so I had to line up my mother in law to spend the day at our house to accept the package.
ProsDurable, easy to put together, can fold and stow away with one hand, sleek look, smooth ride, toddler seat reclines all the way back, can adjust footrest to support little ones so their feet are not dangling, huge sun canopy, adjustable height on handle bar so my 6'4" husband can comfortably push, material is breathable, large basket underneath.
ConsAdult signature required for delivery
Best UsesAccommodates multiple children, great for walking trails, shopping, and park. Not recommended for very rough terrains.
