Around Town - Practicality Plus!
7 July 2009
Summary: I was looking for a way to minimize the bulk in order to run errands and just simply get around town. I have 2.5 year old twins and a baby on the way. This was the best solution I could find. Although it is not recommended to have more than 2 kids - I had to consolidate. I wasn't about to upgrade from a double stroller to a triple and since my twins rarely use a stroller as it is - it became the way they could share a ride with the new baby when they got a little worn...
Summary: I recently purchased the sit and stand stroller after lots and lots of research. I have a newborn and a three year old son. I did not want a double stroller because they are so large and my three year old is focused on being a big kid and will not stay in a stroller. We finally purchased the sit and stand after going to different stores and trying the comparable joovy and also debating on just purchasing a new single stroller.
Summary: Bought this yesterday. My 2 year old son loves sitting on the platform seat. We don't yet have another baby on the way, but plan on it soon. Up until now I used the Graco single, and just never loved using it. We live in a city and use a stroller a lot. The Graco is bulky, heavy and not all that attractive. I decided it was time to make a more practical change. I did my research e.g.
Summary: I love this stroller! Purchased 3 months ago when my baby was 2 months & my toddler had just turned 2. Very functional and easy to use. Folds more compact than my single Evenflo stroller. Easy to fold, just make sure the front wheels are facing the right way first. (Pull the stroller backwards until the wheels flip to the front). Slightly heavier than my single stroller but not much. My 2 year old loves sitting in the back.
Summary: I managed to get this on sale at Target a couple weeks ago for $99 and consider it well-worth the price. It's really about the same weight as the Joovy Caboose Ultralight (compared them in-store side-by-side), about the same length, but less than half the price. It corners very well, considering its length.
Summary: We like this stroller and it serves its purpose, but it does have a few annoying quirks: the jumpseat cushion keeps sliding off, the standing safety belt broke the second time we used the stroller, and the front footrest and tray fall off every time we fold the stroller. Otherwise, it is smaller and lighter weight than our previous double stroller (non-sit and stand) and our daughter loves the freedom of coming and going from the jumpseat.
Summary: Two complaints: 1. The fabric colors are much darker than in the pictures online and the outside of the box. Parts of the visor and seat are nearly black. This is a specific concern for us in a warm climate during the summer. The visor is also pretty useless, it doesn't provide any shade for the toddler sitting in the jump seat, and very little for the front seat as well. 2: Stroller is very long. With the carrier on, it's even longer.
