Easiest fold ever
Lightweight for the size
Excellent sun shade
Straps are easy to adjust
Nice size--more substantial than an umbrella stroller, but smaller than a standard stroller
Handlebar is a nice height (I'm 5'!0" and it's very comfortable)
Steering and ride are okay. For a standard, small-wheeled stroller, it's fine. Great for the mall, less than stellar at the park or on long walks or anywhere there might be something other than completely smooth pavement.
You can't hang stuff off the handlebars without buying those special hooks (not a huge deal, but it's been an annoyance a few times)
The storage underneath is a little difficult to get to. Not as bad as other strollers, but could be easier.
Like a lot of families with more than one child, I've owned quite a few strollers, and this is one of my favorites. It's the one that I keep in my car all the time for general errand running and shopping. It's not the stroller I take on nature walks or trips to the nature reserve, but over all it's a great general-use stroller.
+ Extremely well built. No creaks or wobbles.
+ Large, positively positioning canopy. The canopy folds nicely.
+ Super simple fold. You don't need an engineering degree to figure out how to fold this thing.
+ One handed, light steering. Very agile even with one hand.
+ Not too large. You won't block the whole supermarket aisle.
+ Solid, one foot brake. A metal shaft positively locks the wheels (as opposed to a friction style brake)
+ Infinite seat back adjustment. The back goes almost completely prone.
+ Easily adjustable harness.
+ Not bulky when folded.
+ Wheels are just good enough for going over park terrain. Don't expect to go over anything rougher than gravel though.
- No autolock mechanism when folded.
- Difficult to access the bottom carry basket.
- Suspension is on the front only.
- Tires are foam.
- When folded the seat of the stroller faces out.
- Harness buckle is a little too easy to undo.
After much agonizing and research we settled on the City Mini. We needed a stroller that would fit in our small hatchback trunk and be versatile enough to use for many years. Other brands had excellent build quality but were large while most compact strollers were way too complicated and felt fragile. The city mini was the best compromise between size and solidity.
One common complaint about the city mini is that it doesn't come with accessories. We actually found this to be a plus as we didn't want a bumper bar or rain cover at the time of purchase. And at about $230 this stroller is at the low end of the price spectrum for a stroller of this quality.
Having used the city mini for 7 months now I can confidently say the city mini is an amazing, versatile stroller that I can confidently recommend to anyone.
The stroller is light and easy to maneuver. I am 5' 7" and my husband 6' 1" and the handle height is perfect for both of us. We often take the stroller through the grass at the park while walking our dog and it handles the terrain beautifully. Perhaps we would have looked at the other city strollers more carefully for more flexibility in tire size and handle operation, but we are very happy with this stroller.
When our daughter is older the canopy is very large to block the sun and it has full recline if she is sleepy. We like that we never had to buy one of those plasticy graco stroller kits and it isn't necessarily making the statement of a bugaboo, but City has a lifetime warranty and is very well built.
Best quality for the price - and we were only looking at top end options. Bugaboo, Peg Perego, etc. were other strollers we considered. None fold up as easily so even a new grandma can fold the stroller.
-It is easy to fold in literally one second.
-The canopy is great, it completely covers my baby.
-It has great maneuvarability.
-It is very solid. I was able to put my diaper bag on the handle bars and it would not tip when I took my baby out.
-There is a mesh basket on the back of the seat which is great for dropping in easy to access essential
-at 17 lbs its supposed to be a relatively light weight stroller.Read more ›
