Happy Thursday, friends! PS Has this week flown by for anyone else?! I thought the first week back after 2 holiday weeks would be slow, but nope! Not complaining though 🙂
I wanted to share my thoughts on the City Mini Anniversary Edition today! Strollers these days have gotten huge, and heavy. Not to mention, SO dang expensive. I’ve seen some that are OVER $1,000….like what?! There are so many to choose from – Full size, travel systems, jogging strollers…the list goes on and on. If you’re in the market for a new stroller, I highly suggest going into a baby story and take a look at the different types in person and see what features your’re drawn to. In today’s post, I wanted to talk a little bit about our City Mini Anniversary Edition, and give you my full and honest Baby Jogger review.
When I opened our package, it was already late and dark outside, so I started using it inside my house. The first thing I noticed was how well it whipped around corners. Our first stroller was much bulkier, so when taking Ava anywhere, I would have to put her in the car, take the seat off the stroller, fold up the frame, and was sweating bullets after all of the steps were complete. Now that Ava is over a year, I knew I wanted something more compact and lightweight.
One of my favorite features of the City Mini Anniversary Edition is being able to fold the stroller with one hand. A simple lift of a strap folds the stroller down into a compact size, perfect if you have a sedan or want more space in your SUV. My other favorite feature is its generous sun canopy with two peekaboo windows. It provides great shade from the sun no matter what angle the seat is positions. Ava can get uninterrupted naps as the canopy can be opened up 1/3, 1/4 or full closed.
Since the stroller is so light weight (at only 22 lbs), but be aware that if you strap a heavy diaper bag to the handle and get your child out of the stroller, it will topple backwards. If you want to avoid this, the storage basket below has ample room for a small to medium size bag.
All in all, I’m so glad we have this stroller for the next stage with Ava. It’s convenient, lightweight, and will be perfect for traveling.
I would love to hear your favorite strollers in the comments below!
