I rarely ever write product reviews, but this stroller really deserves one! If you are trying to decide whether the quality of this stroller compares to the britax b agile or the city mini, I can tell you that it definitely does! It is very well-constructed and was incredibly easy to put together. While the pictures of the stroller on the website make the stroller wheels look kind of small and flimsy, I was happy to see that they were sturdy and well made. The stroller has the same deep reclining feature as the city mini--it reclines almost flat--so that I will be able to use it from newborn through preschool age. I purchased a snuzzler to provide extra padding and support for when my baby is little and it fits very well in the stroller. The canopy is very large and has 2 little windows that you can open up to see the baby, even when the stroller is deeply reclined. The one handed fold is amazing and the stroller is light and compact. The stroller folds perfectly even with the snuzzler in the seat. It seems very easy to push across different types of surfaces. The basket is easy to access but is too small for my diaper bag. It hangs just fine from the handle though. The stroller does not come with cup holders but I purchased one that can be velcroed on to any stroller that has 2 cup holders and a storage area. Overall, I really feel that you cannot go wrong with this stroller! An excellent baby purchase for sure!!
I can't believe that I didn't get this stroller sooner! I got this after doing extensive research and narrowed it down to this Baby Jogger City series, [...], and the new [...].
A few pros that swayed my decision-
-lightweight! It's only about 17 lbs, compared to the other nearly 30 lbs strollers.
-so easy to fold! I hope more strollers start to adopt this concept.
-easy to maneuver. I can push this nearly straight while holding my daughter's hand if she wants to walk instead.
-size does matter, in this case. it's much smaller and narrower than the others.
Some cons that can be easily remediated
-lack of parent console. You can buy one.
-The seats are not as padded or stiff as I'd like. When I first put my daughter in the seat, she kind of sank in. I think you can purchase a board for the back support but not the seat itself.
All in all, this was a great purchase! When our family grows, I will definitely be getting the double stroller!
I LOVE Target! Thank God they were able to carry this LIMITED EDITION City Micro stroller from Baby Jogger! After my own inspection, I called Baby Jogger directly to see what the differences were, and this is what I was told. The City Mini has
-Larger 8" wheels
-Padded seat and firm seat back
-Vented mesh screen w/ weather cover
...and that's pretty much the only differences. The City Micro has the exact same deep recline, peek-a-boo windows, LARGE extendable canopy, automatic lock, and of course, the easy one-hand fold as the City Mini has...these are features that we all love! It can use ALL of the same accessories as the City Mini. I purchased the Child Tray, and it fits my Micro perfectly. In addition, this particular limited edition City Micro model has an all-black frame with all-black wheels...making it look stylish and FABULOUS!!!
It is no longer available at the stores, but it is still available for purchase online through Target and a few other online retailers.
