Britax B-Ready Stroller Review

britax_b_ready2Britax B-Ready is a luxury stroller that gain popularity because of the reversible seat and the ability to transform into a double inline stroller with an addition of the second seat. You can also easily turn it into a travel system by getting a car seat adapter or you can use it as a frame by replacing the seat with an infant car seat or a bassinet. It has over 14 different seat combinations! This stroller grows with your family and is perfect if you are planning on having a second child in the near future.

B-Ready is designed for flat surfaces. You can take it to the park, run errands or go to the mall, but it will feel bumpy if you try to tackle grass, mulch or gravel. It is not an all-terrain stroller. The maneuverability is great even with both seats fully loaded.

It’s full of features like large accessible basket, nice canopy, adjustable handle bar, and adjustable foot rest. The foam filled rubber wheels will never go flat and all-wheel suspension will provide your child with a smooth ride. B-Ready is very stable and will not tip over even with a heavy child climbing into a 2nd smaller seat. It is a great double stroller, but if you are going to use it ONLY as a single, it is not the best choice. It weighs about 27 lbs in a single mode and 36 lbs in double.

I gave it 5 out of 5 stars because it’s almost perfect. As you probably noticed, I rarely give a stroller 5 stars, but I think B-Ready is a great solution for parents who are planning on heaving a second child. The only thing I would change is a handle bar, would like to see a telescoping one. That’s it! It is on the heavier side, but I don’t think they couldn’t made it any lighter without it being unstable with the second seat. The price ranges anywhere from $360 – $499 depending on the color and the seller. I found it on Amazon for $399 (free shipping/free return and no tax). Keep in mind, the price vary depending on the color.

BOB Motion Stroller Review

bob_motion_strollerBOB Motion Stroller is the newest addition to the line of BOB strollers. After focusing on jogging strollers for 15 years, BOB have introduced their 4-wheel lightweight compact stroller that is designed for everyday use like going to the shopping mall, grocery store, or doctor’s appointment. But, since it has all-terrain wheels and rugged suspension system, it will handle tough terrain so you can take it to the park, beach or trails.

It looks like BOB really listened to the customers because this stroller has what other BOB strollers are lacking like one-hand fold, adjustable handle bar, and infinite seat recline. Also, Click & Go adapter for B-Safe Infant car seats or any BRITAX infant car seat is INCLUDED. How great is that!

Because of all the great features, Motion is a serious competition for everyday strollers like City Mini GT and Britax B-Agile. It weighs only 23 lb and can hold a child up to 76 lb. You can use it from birth and till college with now problem. :)

Baby Jogger City Versa Stroller Review

city_versa1Baby Jogger City Versa is a luxury stroller that combines features from City Mini and City Select models. Its main feature is a reversible seat, meaning your baby can face you or the world. Other convenient features include large canopy, adjustable handle bar, hand parking brake and easy one-hand fold. And like most luxury strollers, Versa has an adjustable foot rest.

This is NOT a jogging stroller. It’s designed for everyday use like running errands, going to the store or doctors appointment. The all-wheel suspension and 8″ rubber tires absorb a lot of the bumps creating a smooth ride for your little one. Weighing 26.2 lbs with a max weigh of 50 lbs, City Versa looks like a smaller and lighter version of the City Select model. But, it is still heavier than City Mini that weighs only 16 lbs. There is NO double version.

Bumbleride Flyer Stroller Review

bumbleride_flyer13Bumbleride Flyer stroller is so popular because of its reversible handle bar that gives your child ability to face you or the world. Weighing 19 lb, this stroller is somewhere in between an umbrella stroller and a regular stroller.

The problem I have with it, is that there is a not enough storage and the wheels are too small for a regular stroller. At the same time, it is too heavy (19 lbs) and too big for an umbrella stroller. You really can’t carry it over the shoulder like you normally would with an umbrella stroller.

Flyer is designed for flat surfaces like mall, sidewalks, doctor’s office or airport. It is very difficult to push over uneven terrain like grass, gravel or mulch. This is definitely NOT all-terrain stroller.

It does have a lot of great features like large canopy, adjustable foot rest, roomy seat, and easy fold. But the main reason why people buy is the REVERSIBLE handle bar. For some people facing their child is the most important feature in the stroller. It’s a HUGE selling point, and they are willing to overlook the weight and small wheels. If you want a lighter stroller with a lot of features, I would suggest City Mini or Britax B-Agile since tehy weigh only 16 lbs. Bumbleride Indie is another great option. It weighs almost the same at 20 lbs, but is a jogging stroller that will go through anything no matter how rough the terrain gets.

UPPAbaby Vista Stroller Review

uppababy_vista1UPPAbaby Vista is one of the COOLEST looking strollers! Every time I saw someone with Vista when I was shopping for a stroller, I couldn’t help turning my head. It looks so modern and sleek! Beside the awesome look, parents are absolutely in LOV with Vista because it has a reversible seat and a matching bassinet (included), so you can walk with a pram during your baby’s first six months looking all fabulous! It is a luxury stroller that grows with your baby from birth and up to 50 lbs.

You can also get a car seat adapter and turn it into a travel system. If you planing on having a second child, Vista got you covered. With an additional rumble seat, you can convert Vista into a double in-line stroller. And this is not all. You can purchase a piggy back/glider board to add a third older child.

Vista is an all-terrain stroller that you can take to the park, playground, or a shopping mall. The rubber wheels and all-wheel suspension make it easily to go over the mulch, grass or gravel. The over-sized basket underneath the seat, can fit two large diaper bags, so you can definitely take it grocery shopping. It also has a great canopy, one hand recline, easy fold, and adjustable leg rest.
