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 Cruz Stroller Review

uppababy_cruz1UPPAbaby Cruz is a lightweight stroller with reversible seat. The Cruz model is little sister of a Vista since it is lighter and more compact.  It’s designed for on-the-go parents who live in an urban environment. You can take it to the store, shopping mall or doctor’s office. It has small wheels and narrow frame that makes it very easy to navigate store aisles and tackle tough sidewalks. It is NOT your all-terrain regular stroller. You will have a hard time taking it to the park to walk a trail. It is not designed for going over grass, gravel or mulch.

Cruz is somewhere in between the umbrella stroller and your regular stroller. The wheels are too small for a regular stroller and at the same time, it is too heavy (22 lbs) to be an umbrella stroller.

Usually parents have two stroller: a heavier all-terrain stroller that you can take to the park or for a stroll around the neighborhood, and a lighter one that you would take to the mall, doctor’s office or on the plane. For parents who want to save money by buying only one stroller, Cruz is a great choice. It will definitely get you through the first 3 years. The roomy seat can accommodate a child from birth and up to 50 lbs. You can also convert it into a travel system by getting an infant car seat adapter.

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.
