Glad i pulled the trigger!
September 4, 2021
Let me start by saying I’m not one of those people who need top notch everything for baby products. They get used so little, kids have different preferences, etc - and a lot of the high quality stuff I do get is used. That being said, spending a small fortune on a double stroller (son is almost 2, baby due in a few weeks) sounded not great. My kid now is already resisting his stroller, and is tall, so to spend hundreds on something that will be used maybe two years max seemed wasteful. Fabric based baby things I do tend to prefer new. So when I heard about the veer (which was the same price/less than the nice doubles) I thought that could be something we use for years to come. So far my son seems to tolerate it more than the stroller, which is the most I can ask for. He likes to play with his train and eat snacks on the tray, look/move around, etc. For me, I love it. I like the storage (can put in my lawn chair!), the fact that it has no problem on grass, and that it’s easy to maneuver. I think the push mode is smooth, I’ve heard otherwise but not sure why. The push along mode is especially great when the wagon is empty or if you don’t have room to turn the whole wagon around. Every time we are out, somebody comments along the lines of “wow I need that!” It’s not light at 32lbs, but again same weight/lighter than the sturdy doubles I was looking at. It fits in our car, but we’re in the city and don’t drive much. We store it vertically in our apartment and pop off the smaller wheels, and as a result the footprint is smaller than our jogging single. I still can’t believe I spent so much on a baby project, but it’s very high quality and I really see us getting many years of use out of this! I would recommend the bugaboo stroller organizer too with this, it’s so convenient.
- Great for off road, sturdy, roomy, high quality materials
- Have to take off all accessories to fold it
