I love this stroller for the same reasons as everyone else (compact, great upright fold, lightweight, easy to carry/transport, comfortable for baby, high seat position, good quality, great price -- even includes a raincover, and looks great). I originally bought it in red, but returned it because I saw a better price elsewhere. I bought it in orange, without realizing that there are two different models of this stroller available (you can tell them apart by color). I thought it would be helpful for people to know the few differences between the two.

- The newer model is only available in red or black. It has an adjustable footrest that doubles as a carseat adapter. The footrest also flips up, sort of turning the stroller into a bassinet. The recline mechanism allows for 4 distinct reclines, from almost flat to almost fully upright.

- The older model is only available in orange, green, brown, or grey. It does not have the car seat adapter or adjustable footrest. The recline mechanism is different, allowing any angle of your choice, except that the range is smaller than on the newer model -- it cannot go quite as flat or as upright. For this reason, they advertise the old model as being for 3-4 months and up, while the newer model is advertised as suitable for newborns.

I was surprised to see these differences, since it is not described as an old or new model, and the red, black, and orange versions were all being sold for the same price (half of MSRP!) at Albee Baby. I love the orange color, and our Safety 1st Designer 22 carseat doesn't fit in the newer model, anyway, so we're keeping our orange Presto.

Note: We bought this stroller after already owning (and loving) the UppaBaby Vista. We also owned and did not love the Uppababy G-Luxe. Typically, we used the Vista exclusively unless we were traveling or needed a stroller we could easily fold in a restaurant, etc.

I had a bunch of frustrations with the Uppababy G-Luxe umbrella stroller -- all of which are important to note in terms of why I'm so happy with the Aprica. Cons of the Uppababy G-Luxe included: awkward shape when folded; doesn't REALLY stand up well when folded; too easy for toddler to yank the end of the seat cushion off; tips over without fail if anything is hanging on the back; smallish/awkward basket; umbrella/awning too easily pulled down (or off) by toddler); rain cover was too tight against toddler's legs; harness and straps were absurdly tight if toddler was wearing anything more than a thin shirt; even the "black" colored version has a LOT of white on it -- few things make less sense to me than a white stroller...

So here are all the things I LOVE about the Aprica (most of which are things the G-Luxe didn't offer).

PROS (of Aprica):
- styling/looks -- it's honestly the best looking umbrella stroller; fabrics are way nicer than Maclaren or Uppababy; and the black shows no dirt.
- awesome sunshade
- harness is awesome (5 point harness which you can use with either all 5 points or 3 points.)
- great for larger toddler OR smaller infant
- basket is actually pretty huge for an umbrella stroller
- no cupholder, but I bought this one and it fits perfectly. it also can be left on when the stroller is folded.

- when folded, the stroller is such a nice compact shape.
- people say the fold itself is tricky. i read the directions once and do it all the time now, no problem.
- you can hang quite a lot of stuff on the back and it won't tip over when the kid is out! (this is a HUGE "pro" for me since it's so rare to find in an umbrella stroller.)
- comes with rainshield

CONS (of Aprica):
- Somewhat harder to steer with one hand than I would like.
- I hesitate even listing this as a con, but it's worth noting that yes, the Aprica is slightly heavier than the G-Luxe. Honestly though, because of how much less awkward it is to carry, I haven't really noticed a difference.

I shopped the heck out of this purchase, and am very happy with this product.

I absolutely would buy this product again, but will say that it is perhaps not the best choice on the market. Is it the best value, however? I think so. At 99$, this stroller does pretty much everything. It operates as a travel system, fully reclines for easy diaper changes, structurally can hold a very very large diaper bag on the back/handles without the baby in it and not tip over, and also has a decent storage area under the seat.

It also features a very decent sized sun canopy that provides very good coverage for an umbrella stroller. The straps and seat are also very well cushioned, and very comfortable for our little passenger.

Construction and stability are rock solid on this unit as well, but I will say that this does result in a heavier unit, but it is easy to tote around due to the carry strap and the shape that it folds into isn't awkward. That said, it is by no means compact.

The other nice add in feature is hte included rain sheild. We haven't used it much, but it's nice to have in teh basket just in case.

As far as draw backs, there are several. The wheels are not high end rubber, and don't provide much cushioning for baby when strolling on rougher surfaces. IE, forget using this thing on gravel or rough pavement. It is adequate for cement adn nice blacktop and fantastic at the mall/big box store.

We bought this unit to be our airport warrior and it is just that. We were able to strap in our carseat bucket using the travel system (no adapters to deal with), strap our 2 carryons and a purse to the back of the stroller, and quickly navigate security checkpoints and the gates. While on vacation, it serves as a great stroller.

I've read the other reviews here complainig about quality. I simply couldn't disagree more. The unit is very sturdy and well constructed. The only drawbacks I see are the wheels and lack of tires, and perhaps the folding adn collapsing procedures. I have no issues with it, but it is difficult for my wife and regaurdless of the operator, does require two hands and some effort to collapse and open. On the flip side, tehre's no risk of the unit accidentally collapsing or opeining on you due to the design.

So, to boil it down here are my pro's/cons:

PROS:
Good canopy
1 handed recline adjustment
Reclines to be nearly flat for diaper changing
sturdy construction
comfortable cockpit
comfortable grips
good sized basket
doesn't tip over with large bags strapped to teh back
travel system is easy to use and doesn't require adapters
widest weight range supported by any umbrella stroller
Looks more expensive than it really is

CONS:
Plastic wheels don't offer much comfort on rougher terrain and scratch easily
Suspension doesn't really offer much comfort for baby and is inadequate
Opening and closing can be difficult at first until you get the hang of it
When folded, still takes up lots of space in the trunk

I have a full size stroller and was looking for a lighter embrella stroller for traveling. Aprica is one of the most popular strollers in Japan and I thought the Presto would have the same great quality as the Japanese ones. Well I was wrong.

After I assembled it I felt that it would not close properly, but can't really figure out why. Then after re-reading all the reviews on Amazon, I realized it's the same problem as the previous reviewer, the seat backboard was broken. When folded, the board is longer than the metal frame, so if there is pressure on that extended part, it could be easily broken. I suspect that this happened during the shipping. So I promptly returned it, thanks to Amazon's hassel free return.

The pros of the stroller are: it's light, folds easily once you know the trick, self standing when folded, big canopy, and yes, the flat recline is very nice for when my 6 months old wants to take a nap.

The cons are: very difficult to manuver over bumps or non-flat surface. Indoors, at the mall, at the airport, no problems. But it takes a lot of effort to turn when outside on the city walks. I know it's not an all-terrain stroller and I didn't expect it to be as smooth as our full size stroller, but still it was too much work.

Just recieved this stroller in red for my 4 month old daughter and I love it. It's such a durable stroller and very apealing. The height is perfect for me eventhough I am short I love the fact that I don't have to bend down to put my daughter in. The cushion is sooooo comfortable for her. Most strollers doesn't have the extra padding and this was a plus for me. I love the canopy and the seat adjustments is perfect for her, as soon as I put her in the stroller she went right to sleep which in her other $600+ strollers she didn't. This stroller is worth the price, never again would I assume more money means better quality. Aprica proved me wrong! this stroller is worth every dollar THANKS APRICA.....

I had hoped this stroller would be easier to maneuver but the front wheels seem to stick. The canopy doesn't stay on and is made of hard plastic type canvas that seems cheap. Shoulder pads come off easily making them easy to lose.

This stroller folds up nicely and is light weight. I also like that it is free standing when folded up (with some effort now). HOWEVER, it is VERY difficult to navigate and the wheels stick. If I want to move from stopped position I really have to jerk the stroller to get the wheels to cooperate. The fold up bars criss cross right over the basket making it almost useless. And the front end is too light if you have purse and/or diaper bag hanging from handles but no baby in seat. Biggest pain in my ass!

I just received this stroller today. It has four wheels to snap on and one big canopy to snap in. That is it! It fits my Graco infant car seat perfectly. If you are looking for a light weight car seat stroller and can continue to use it when your baby is bigger, I highly recommend this stroller. I tried so many strollers in the store and couldn't find a light weight and sturdy one. This stroller answers my quest. Bonus point: this is also a Graco owned brand!

The stroller attracts me by its high seat position, and 170 degree flat recline. When my baby was small, she rest very comfortable on its padded seat. After she can sit up by herself, she sit on the stroller with us in restaurant. I am looking forward to use it as a soccer chair in the future;) as it can hold up to 70 lbs.

Main reason for buying it because the reviews and it stands on its own. Loved that is has a super-sized sun shade. It also allowed us to move baby to seat without car seat earlier than our Graco stroller! My only complaint, a little bit on the heavy side for an unbrella stroller.
