The Phil & Teds Vibe is a great looking buggy, but a few glitches that could make it even better to use...

Summary: I really like the look of the Phil & Teds Vibe, and it is incredibly lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. I use it with a buggy board which works well. There are a number of things that could be improved to make it much easier to use. The seat is fairly small, and the straps are too small for my 2 year old, we bought the extensions for £7. The handles are also too short, I have to stoop a bit and I am not tall. A tall parent would injure themselves pushing it!
Pros: Good looking Easy to clean Very lightweight yet robust
Cons: Small seat Short straps - we bought the extensions Short handles The front wheels don't lock
Summary: i wanted the Hauck Malibu Stroller & Pram before i even got pregnant, but after being sooo hard to find i seen this one on sale. it was love at first sight!!! the basket is small but if that's my only complaint its a winner!!! <3 and they really should throw in some sort of cushion/cover instead of leaving it totally empty.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Easy To Steer, Lightweight, Sturdy
Summary: We were looking for a stroller with the bassinet option, looked great, and wasn't ridiculously expensive. The Smart Buggy was the best choice for us. It's so lightweight and easy to maneuver. The bassinet is great! I love that my baby can sleep comfortably anywhere. We also use it for her to sleep in when we visit family. She sleeps better in the bassinet than the pack 'n play. It has also come in handy when there isn't a changing station in a public restroom.
Pros: Comfortable, Easily Stowed, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Steer, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Accessories sold separate, Not for rough terrain
Summary: I love this stroller, and I'm a mother of 5... I've had many stroller and this is my favorite.. I s light way, easy to fold and open (1 hand actually) and easy to steer, i use just one hand to handle everything.. My kids are 6 months, 2 years and 4 years (the younger ones) and i really need to do multiple things at a time.. I have the vibe but is too bulky and heavy, i live it in the garage and just use it in my neighborhood to exercise..
Pros: Durable, Easily Stowed, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Steer, Lightweight, Sturdy
Summary: Negatives: If you are planning to use this stroller with a car seat (since infants can't go in the main seat until 4 mos), and you live in the US you must use with Graco Snugride. Period. I already had a Maxi Cosi Mico and they are not compatible. The Maxi Cosi attachment advertised is for a different Maxi Cosi car seat that isn't sold in the US, neither is the attachment if you wanted to try it anyway which hasn't been tested by the company for safety.
Summary: We got this bundle after exhausting research on traditional and high-end strollers. We love that the Smart Buggy is very lightweight, compact and sleek. I initially thought the bundle was absolutely the way to go, but it was a little bit of a waste in our case: our newborn hates to lay flat (and have since read that many newborns do, in fact)!
Pros: Durable, Easily Stowed, Easy To Steer, Fully Adjustable Canopy, Large Rear Wheels, Lightweight, Sleek Design, Sturdy
Cons: Accessories All Separate, Limited Seat Recline
Summary: This travel bag is great to keep your Smart Buggy secure while travelling. <br />The bag is fully padded making sure the contents is safe when being moved around, reducing the risk of breakages.<br />You can also use the straps attached, to carry the bag with ease. <br />This item is Fantastic if you are planning to travel with your little one.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Good Value, Lightweight, Quality Construction
Summary: My husband and I wanted a stroller with the following criteria: a bassinet, a parent facing option, lightweight, fits easily into a compact car trunk, sturdy feel and smooth operation. Most strollers that meet all of our criteria were in the $500+ price range. The smart, with the addition of a verso adapter, is everything we were looking for at a great price! We plan to use it as our primary stroller for about the first year.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Easily Stowed, Easy To Set Up, Easy To Steer, Lightweight, Sturdy
