My Perfect Stroller

Rated a Very Helpful Review
  • User Rating: Excellent

  • Durability:
  • Ease of Use:

Pros:Easy to fold and unfold, compact, cushy for baby from new born on

Cons:If you care, no tray for child or giant shoppers basket

The Bottom Line: If you want a compact easy-to-use stroller that looks amazing this is the stroller for you.


I shopped for a stroller like I was buying a new car. We live downtown in a bigger city and needed a stroller that was compact, easy to fold, fun to push outside (and be pushed in) and would last. I did not want a giant mall shopping stroller and so I did not care about the cup holder for parent / child nor did I need a huge basket. If these two things are important to you, you might want to check out a different stroller. The Zippy does come with a parent cup holder, but since I thought putting scalding hot coffee / tea right over my child's head was silly, I never used it. My little boy is going to be 1 in a week and at 23 pounds, he still loves this stroller. Here are some of the things I love:
1) Easy to fold. There is a demonstration on the inglesina website. Love, love, love it. I did not want a stroller that collapsed into the ground. It did not make sense to me to drop something into the dirty ground then bend down to pick it up (and all of the stuff it was laying in). This folds up to you and can even stand on its own while folded. Perfect for apartment living.
2) Easy to unfold.
3) Steers like a dream. Some people comment about the two handles instead of a bar. Never bothered me and I take long walks in a less than perfectly maintained city and use only one hand. There is suspension for the baby and nice big wheels for the cracks.
4) Made very well. The harness is easy to use and tighten, the fabric is beautiful, soft and plush and after a year of walks in every different kind of weather is still looks brand new.
5) Company is very nice. I was silly and did not purchase the matching boot and the American contact looked everywhere for one and e-mailed me the same day.
6) The rain cover is excellent for city dwellers or anyone who gets caught in the rain. Kept my guy dry as a bone.
7) The shade is awesome. Comes unsnapped in the back and covers everything down to his feet.

I love this stroller and only wish they made an identical twin version. I like that there is no activity / snack tray. The bumper bar snaps off if you don't like it making putting the child in the stroller even easier.

This stroller will also accommodate an infant car seat like a Graco. We used it with the universal adaptor and it was great although made me a little nervous. I also have the carry cot that you can purchase and used it until my baby could sit up and it was wonderful.
