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 Revolution CE Stroller Review

bob_revolution_ceThis is one of my favorite strollers! BOB Revolution CE is a great for walking around the neighborhood, long walks in the park, and light jogging. This CE (City Edition) model is designed for active parents who like to walk more than run. This is NOT a power jogging stroller. If you are looking for a jogger, SE (Sport Edition) model would be a better choice.

I like to go for light jogging, but more often prefer to walk. We have a lot of trails near my house, so I put my baby Sophia in the stroller, grab phone, keys and my little Yorkie (in this order) and walk out of the house. Sophia usually falls asleep within first 10 min and I have some time to call my friends to catch up.

Since I always have my phone in one hand, I push the stroller and hold the leash with another. The stroller has to be easy-to-push and navigate in order for me to do it all at once. Well, the CE model is truly one handed stroller. I don’t recommend it for shopping because it is very wide (25.5″) and very long (51.5″). You will be constantly hitting display stands with the front wheel.

BOB Stroller Strides Fitness Stroller Review

bob_stroller_strides1BOB Stroller Strides Fitness model was released after BOB teamed up with a nationwide exercise program called Stroller Strides®. It is a very popular stroller-based fitness program designed for moms who want to get in shape while spending time with their kids outdoors (no babysitter!). It incorporates power walking, strength, toning, songs and activities. BOB Stroller Strides Fitness Stroller is based on a top selling BOB Revolution model.

And just like Revolution, it has 16″ tires and high-impact polymer wheels. Both strollers are identical, that is why you are not going to find separate reviews for this stroller. The only difference is when you order Fitness model, you will get a parent console ($30 if you buy it separately) and a fitness kit that includes two exercise tubes of different tension, a Stroller Strides exercise manual, and coupons for a week of free Stroller Strides classes. Oh, almost forgot! The most important feature of this stroller is it’s red 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 Elite Stroller Review 2014

city_elite22Baby Jogger City Elite is an award winning luxury stroller that can be used everyday for running errands or going to the park. It has all the bells and whistles of City Mini GT plus some. It features fabulous canopy, adjustable foot rest, roomy seat, and adjustable handle bar. With 12″ forever-air tires and front-wheel suspension, City Elite model can be taken off road. It will provide a smooth ride going over grass, uneven pavement, or playground mulch.

This stroller has almost flat recline and accepts car seat adapter meaning you can convert it to a travel system. You can use it from birth to up to 75 lbs. Although you can put your newborn right into the seat from a very early age, I would recommend using an infant insert for extra support.  You can also convert it into a travel system with most popular infant car seats like Graco, Peg Perego, Britax, Chicco, Evenflo and Maxi Cosi.

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 Indie Stroller Review

bumbleride_indie1Bumbleride Indie is my favorite all-terrain stroller. It was a big hit from the moment it was released. Indie is designed for active parents who enjoy light jogging and want an everyday stroller with the off-road ability and LUXURY features. This is perfect for moms like me, who is not a serious jogger, but still wants to lose that extra baby weight.

It has everything a girl can dream off! A huge canopy, adjustable foot rest, deep recline, roomy seat, large basket and light weight frame. That’s right, this jogging stroller weighs ONLY 20 lbs! The air-filled tires and rear suspension system provide exceptionally smooth ride. It glides with ease and can be pushed with one hand. The seat is made out of eco-friendly material that helps to regulate temperature and absorb moisture.

You can easily convert it to a travel system with the included car seat adapter or by purchasing a matching bassinet. The seat can also convert into a bassinet-like environment making if perfect for a newborn (you might not even need to get a bassinet). Bumper bar is also included in 2013 model. This stroller can be used from birth up to 45 lbs. If you have twins, it is not a problem. The double version is also available. If you are not into jogging  and would like to get an all-terrain stroller, check out Indie 4 model.

Bumbleride Flite Stroller Review

bumbleride_flite1Bumbleride Flite is an amazing umbrella stroller that weighs only 14 lbs, but has a lot of features of a regular stroller. That’s right! Even though it is an umbrella stroller, you get a large canopy, roomy seat, deep recline, all-wheel suspension, adjustable footrest, and an INCLUDED car seat adapter so you can convert it to a travel system. Not many umbrella strollers have such a deep recline (many don’t recline at all) and a very few can covert into a travel system. BTW, this is the lightest stroller in the Bumbleride collection.

The seat is made out of high quality eco-friendly material that is a blend of bamboo and nylon fabrics (it  feels expensive).It’s a very sturdy and stable stroller that is designed for urban lifestyle. You can take it to the mall, doctor’s office, or for a stroll around the neighborhood. For parents that travel a lot, this is one of the BEST strollers currently on the market.

While Flite will handle off-road terrain better than your usual umbrella stroller, it is NOT made for all-terrain. It has small rubber wheels that do better on flat surfaces. The all-wheel suspension system will absorb bumpy urban sidewalks with ease making it a smooth ride. Double option is NOT available for Flite.

I gave this stroller 5 out of 5 stars because it’s perfect! For once I don’t have anything bad to say. The basket is small, but I don’t think it can be any bigger without effecting the compact fold. it
