Pros:Lightweight, Stylish looking, Decent price

Cons:Doesn't always steer perfectly

The Bottom Line: For the price paid, it is a decent stroller. I really like how lightweight and easy to use it is. Great for even the quick trip into the store.


I got this stroller when my son was about 5-6 months old. He was starting to sit up on his own and I was sick and tired of trying to lug around my other stroller. I needed something lightweight and easier to handle. I have been using it for about a year now, and am still satisfied.

This stroller is fairly stylish looking. It is a nice red color with black accent. I liked that… Get a little tired of all the print fabric on baby stuff.

It has one recline setting. It doesn’t lie back very far, but at least allows you the option of not having your child sitting straight up. This feature is nice for younger babies or when they are getting a little tired and want to be more relaxed.

There is a shade (that can be detached). It is really only good for blocking the sun out of your child’s eyes. It can be rotated all the way to a position right in front of your child. It won’t do much good in the case of rain and it won’t block all sun. Like I said, it really is only good for keeping the sun out of the face/eyes. I usually put it out and move it according to which way the sun is facing. One solution in case of getting stuck out in the rain is to put the shade up and out and then through a coat or something over the whole thing.

There is a mesh bag that hangs on the back. You are not supposed to put more than three pounds in it. I usually put a diaper, a sippy cup and maybe a toy back there.

The cup holder that comes with it is a little small. Only holds certain drinks, say a coffee cup (not mug but the card board kind you get from a coffee stand). Also it has a tendency to snap off easy when folding and un-folding the stroller. It is fine during use though. For the most part, I use the cup holder as a hook for my purse.

The stroller itself is fairly easy to use. To unfold, you simply unlock the latch on the side and push down on the locking mechanism in the back (I always do this with my foot). To close, you out and then up on the locking mechanism. You then snap the latch on the side onto the frame. All easy enough. There are brake locks on both of the back tires. The child is strapped in with a crotch strap (no shoulder strap). I think my only complaint with use would be with steering. Sometimes when steering the wheels seem to get slightly stuck in one direction or another when you get going or are making a lot of turns. It doesn’t stop you, just causes a small hitch in the push until the wheels straighten out. I either keep pushing slowly forward or pull it backwards a few inches so that the wheels straighten out.

I have used this stroller in walks around the park, in the store, mall, etc… In the park I have taken it off the pavement and pushed it in the grass or bark. I pushes just fine. In the stores/mall I can go through isles just fine. Sometimes when steering through tighter spots, say clothing racks at a store, I experience the steering problem that I described above… Slightly annoying when it happens, but not so bad that it has stopped me from wanting to use it.

I am 5'6" and I think the stroller is a good size. My husband though, who is 6'2" finds it a little on the short side and wishes the handles were up a little farther. Also, if you take really big steps (normal steps are fine) you may accidentally kick the back of the wheels.

The fabric seems sturdy and is easy to clean. Everything seems fairly well put together and I don’t foresee anything breaking or coming apart any time soon. All in all, it is fairly easy to use and for the price that I paid, I am happy with it.
