Baby Jogger Vue Baby Stoller Review
The Baby Jogger Vue is the FIRST umbrella stroller with a reversible seat. The unique features of the seat is that in order to reverse it you don’t need to take it out. All you need to do is to push the back of the seat forward. That’s it!
The innovative design also includes a reversible canopy that easily works in both modes. This is not you typical flimsy umbrella stroller. The thick lightweight aluminum frame makes this stroller so sturdy, it can even be transform into a travel system.
The seat has a deep recline that is suitable for a newborn. It can accommodate a child from birth and up to 55 lbs. It also features a large canopy, 5 point harness, adjustable foot rest and compact fold. The small double 5.5″ wheels perform best on flat surfaces, but can handle some mommy terrain like grass, mulch, or uneven pavement.
The basket is very small and hard to access, so you won’t be able to go grocery shopping with it. But, since it’s very sturdy stroller, I think you can hang the dipper bag off the handle bars.
This baby weighs 17.5 lbs which is a little more than your average umbrella stroller. Keep in mind, it’s important for the stroller to weigh a little more in order to have travel system capability.
BabyCenter Editors’ review*
What it is
The original City Mini (not be confused with the City Mini 4-Wheel or the City Mini GT) is one of the most popular standard strollers among BabyCenter moms, and it’s no mystery why. It steers and maneuvers like a dream, even on uneven terrain, it comes with an absolutely huge SPF-50 sun shade, and it has a lovely narrow silhouette. Especially lovable: It’s so easy to fold you can do it while holding a squirmy baby. The pull strap to collapse the stroller becomes a carrying handle, and away you go. You can use infant car-seat adapters to transform it into a travel system that’s compatible with many different seats (we stopped counting at 20 ). And with the newest version, you get lots of snazzy colors to choose from.
What to watch out for
Despite the name, the City Mini is not meant for jogging. The new harness system for 2014 feels floppier and flimsier than we like (but it is easy to adjust). And as a travel system, it doesn’t feel quite as stable as a four-wheel model. Some parents have complained about the cargo basket’s tearing after repeated use.
