GREAT FOR THE OLDER GUYS, WHO OUT WEIGHT TRADITIONAL STOLLERS!
on February 22, 2007
We bought this site unseen online for our upcoming Feb 07 Disney Trip! We just returned home from the trip, we used it for 5 days in the park and 1 zoo trip prior to our vacation. It is great!!!
We have a 3 year old who weighs about 30lbs and our 5 year old is 47lbs, so we knew we needed to upgrade our current double stroller, as our 5 year old out weighed the seat capacity by 3lbs. We looked at double joggers as they have a higher seat weight capacity, but we found them bulkly, difficult to close up, and they have very little strorage space. Plus they are heavey to move around when folded. This on the other had is great, bacause it folds so flat, we were able to put it in the trunk of our sadan, put suitcases on top, and smaller items between the wheels and the basket on the bottom by laying it in handle down. It folds up so fast I was able to do it in just 1 minute prior to the train pulling out of the station at Main Street and I am 30 weeks PREGNANT too. It weighs about as much as my 3 year old, and again because it folds so flat, and was so easy to get in and out of our trunk, as well as the trains, and trams in Disney. We rode the train alot as it's my 3 year olds favorite thing in the world. As for strorage we were able to put two standard sized adult blankets, and avarge sized micro bead pillows in the bottom where their feet go for later in the evening, our jackets went right over the back of the seats, and the pockets were great for maps, napkins, snacks and water bottle. Additionally when we would fold it to board a ride, tram, or stick it in the car at the end of the day we never took the pillows, or blankets out it folded down with them in it, and we never worried about losing anything in the pockets. The seats are really wide, and although I have skinny boys, with no butts, I would say even heavier plumper children would be very comfy in this stroller. With a 130lb weight capacity I can see us using this for a long time, especially with us about to have 3 boys! I will say we learned in crowded areas that you have to walk slightly to one side of the front wheels, cause if someone cuts in front of your path you tend to run into the back of your heel, and that hurts. Unlike a traditional stroller where if someone cuts in front of you, it's them that gets the stroller bump, LOL! I was worried about the seats not reclining like in traditional strollers, but much like an umbrella stroller, children always find a way to sleep when they are ready, and this is ne exception, in fact with the wide seat base, it actually made it easier for my guys to curl up and pass out fast. The best part was being that it was so new, and looked so different from any other stroller in Disney, it was super easy to find when we came off or out of something. The only draw back I could say was everyone under the sun stoped us and asked about a million questions, about them, if I had a $1 for every question we answered about it in the 5 days in Disney we would have paid for our trip and ever trip we ever wanted to go on using it! We are planning to get the backpack that clips on the back seat, as it is nice to off load your day pack from your shoulders every once in a while.
THANKS FISHER PRICE FOR THE GREAT PRODUCT!!!!!
I have to update this review, as it is now 11 months later, and we are still loving this product. We have used it for walks to our community pool, as well as to little league football, and lacrosse games. My now almost 4 year old can ride, and all the gear goes in the other seat, and then once we get to the field, my 4 year old has a seat to sit in. I noticed some have said that they didn't like the length of the handle. I am not sure what they are talking about I am 5 ft 3 and my hubby is 6 ft 1 and we have never had a problem with it.
I still think if we had a $1 for every question we have answered about this over the last 11 months, we would be able to pay for our next Disney trip in 2 years!
