Baby Jogger Summit X3 Stroller Review

Baby Jogger Summit X3 is an award-winning jogging stroller that will go through anything no matter how rough the terrain gets. This updated model has all the features parents want in a jogger like full protection canopy, roomy seat, large basket, and easy fold.

The roomy seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to  75 lbs (that is like 9 year old). You can also use it from birth with an infant cat seat or a pram. The canopy is absolutely HUGE and has two viewing windows.

The all-wheel suspension and air-filled tires make it a smooth ride. The front wheel is swivel, but can be locked straight. I love the remote front-wheel lock which is located on the side of the frame instead of the wheel. You don’t need to bend down and touch that dirty wheel.

The hand brake makes it easy to slow down when going down the hill. There is also an adjustable tracking to get your stroller perfectly straight while you are running.

The Summit X3 is very easy to navigate and steer. It’s truly a one-hand stroller. But, the best feature of X3 is the ONE-HAND fold! Super easy. The only thing I didn’t like is that there is no auto lock and no standing fold so you will need to use you other hand to lock it manually.

Bugaboo Cameleon 3 2017/2018 All-Terrain Stroller Review

bugaboo_cameleon29The Bugaboo Cameleon 3 2018 is a luxury all-terrain stroller that has a reversible seat, reversible handle bar, and comes with a matching bassinet. It is a 3rd generation model of the Bugaboo Cameleon designed for everyday life.

You can take to the park, shopping center or for a walk in the neighborhood. Since the seat is removable, you can use it as a frame with an included matching bassinet or with an infant car seat (purchased separately). This buggy grows with your baby!

For 2017 the handle bar and the bumper bar got upgraded to a vegan leather that makes this stroller even more elegant.

While there are NO UPDATES for 2018, I’ve still added it to my ‘Top 20 Best Strollers for 2018‘ list.

The maneuverability is absolutely great! The all-terrain foam-filled 12″ rear wheels and adjustable front-wheel suspension will provide your child with a smooth ride. What is interesting about Cameleon 3 is that when you reverse the handle bar, the large rear wheels will become your font wheels allowing you to get through the rougher terrain like grass, mulch or even snow.

One very unique feature of Cameleon 3 is its ability to transform into a TWO-WHEEL mode by removing the smaller front wheels. I’ve never seen a stroller do that! Supposedly, it will make it easier to go over sand or snow. I have not tried it myself, but it does look very unstable to me. Other features that parents enjoy are large canopy, roomy seat and a large basket. With all these great features Cameleon 3 weighs ONLY 21 lbs.

Bugaboo Donkey 2017 Stroller Review

bugaboo-donkey-2017-21The Bugaboo Donkey 2017 is a luxury all-terrain stroller that transforms from a single into a double side-by-side mode. You can buy it as a single version and get a second kit later or you can buy it as a double.

The MONO (single) version is used for one child and comes with a seat, bassinet, and a shopping bag that you see next to the seat. The DUO version is designed for different age kids and comes with two seats, one bassinet, and a shopping bag.

The TWIN version is designed for two kids the same age and comes with two bassinets, two seats, and a shopping bag although I don’t know where you would put it if you are using two seats all the time. You can also covert it into a travel system with an addition of one or two infant car seats.

This buggy is perfect for active growing family that doesn’t want to slow down despite having multiple kids. The maneuverability is outstanding! You can push it with a pinky.

The 10″ and 12″ air-filled wheels can handle ANY terrain with ease. You can walk trails with this one. There is even a two-wheel mode that helps you tackle snow and sand (personally, I think that two-wheel mode is pretty useless). It also features one-hand deep recline, large basket, huge canopy, automatic lock, standing fold, run-away strap, and adjustable handle bar.

Baby Jogger City Select LUX Stroller Review

city-select-lux4The Baby Jogger City Select Lux is an updated version of the beloved City Select. As you probably know, City Select has been one of the best selling strollers for a while. Parents love it’s ability to grow with the family converting from a single into a double inline mode or even a triple mode with an addition of a stroller board.

Needless to say I was super exited to see the new Lux model. Let me tell you, it’s amazing! For 2017 City Select got a complete face lift eliminating all of their drawbacks. Is it a perfect stroller now? It just might be. Let’s take a look.

The City Select Lux is a reversible seat stroller with 20 seat combinations (instead of 16) and an ability to take two infant car seats, two fulls size seats, or two bassinets. You can even transport three kids by adding a stroller board. There is also a new jump seat that you can use instead of the main seat for your older child. It turns Lux into a sit-n-stand type of stroller adding 4 more seating arrangements.

The fold is easier and more compact comparing to the previous one. I like how the seat folds in half protecting the inside of the seat from dirt and damage. Before, it was exposed collecting all the dust. You can fold the stroller with both seat attached. And, they’ve added an automatic lock!

britax-b-ready-stroller-2017-2Britax’s B-Ready 2017 is an all-terrain reversible-seat stroller that has ability to convert from single into a double inline stroller. You can use it with two stroller seats, two bassinets or two infant car seats. There are 12 different seating combinations to choose from!

The B-Ready got a lot of great updates for 2017. The frame has been completely redesigned and now looks much more modern and sleek. The canopy provides more shade. The basket got even larger thanks to the detachable extension. The brake has a color indicator and is super flip-flop-friendly.

The Click & Go System allows you to just click any Britax infant car seat right into the frame and you got a travel system. No adapters needed!

The stroller still features: a roomy seat with a tall canopy, the swing-away bumper bar, a deep one-hand recline, adjustable leg rest, adjustable handlebar, all-wheel suspension, automatic lock, standing fold, and easy fold.

Mamas & Papas Ocarro 2017/2018 Stroller Review

mamas-and-papas-ocarro4As you probably know, Mamas & Papas is one of my favorite companies. So, I was very exited to see a new model for 2017 called ‘Ocarro’. While it might be new to the US market, it has been out in UK since October 2016 so there has been some feedback from parents already. Everybody loves it!

It looks like Mamas & Papas took the best features from the Armadillo Flip XT and Urbo 2 models and put it all into Ocarro creating one of the BEST strollers on today’s market.

This buggy has a reversible seat with a one-hand recline that includes a flat position suitable for a newborn. I absolutely love flat reclines where the child can actually fully stretch and does not have to sleep in a half sitting position (it’s also great for diaper changes on the fly).

The large three-panel canopy will provide plenty of shade while a zipped in mesh panel will ensure great air circulation on a hot summer day. You not going to wake your baby up with the magnetic peekaboo window closure instead of noisy Velcro. Large basket can fit a lot of the groceries during your shopping trip. The compact fold will leave plenty of room in your trunk for other things.

Mountain Buggy Terrain Jogger Review

Mountain Buggy Terrain is an all-terrain jogger designed for active parents who like to take their stroller off road. Take it to the beach, park or trail jogging, it can handle anything. The 16″ air filled tires and shock absorbing suspension allows this buggy to glide with ease absorbing all the bumps. This is a heavy duty stroller that can handle even toughest terrain like sand and snow.

One of the coolest things about Terrain is that it comes with a second set of smaller 12″ rear wheels that you can switch to for everyday use. This makes it a perfect MAIN stroller that you can use for fitness and running errands.

Other great features include large canopy with ‘follow-the-sun’ option that offers full protection, adjustable handle bar with run-away strap and a hand-brake, deep almost flat recline suitable for a newborn, plenty of storage including two bottle holders, large basket, two seat pockets and two canopy pockets.

The 16″ air filled tires and state-of-the-art adjustable suspension system provide an exceptionally SMOOTH ride. It is very easy to navigate and will go through any uneven surface. The swivel front wheel can be locked straight for jogging or unlocked for walk in a park.
