Quick Fold Stroller – Perfect for City Travel

Traveling with children can be challenging on many levels. For me the biggest test of all boils down to my baby’s needs. Or more specifically my need to keep him happy so I can enjoy my traveling. This all starts with what we call his ‘limo’ or better known as a stroller.  It took a while for him to get adjusted to being in one and now it’s our lifeline to a fun trip. However, the stroller he grew up with is a huge, all terrain baby jogger which is impossible to take to use as a city stroller where there is a lot of public transportation. It takes a good ten minutes to fold up and then takes up so much room that I can’t even fit it on a bus.  I desperately was in need of  quick fold stroller!

I’m not a huge fan of umbrella strollers, since with my first born we literally went through four different ones because they were so crappy. I needed the comfort of our large portable stroller but one that can be easily managed on city streets and can fold up in seconds.

You’ll be surprised that there are very few that fit these characteristics. You’ll either have only umbrella strollers or huge strollers that offer the comforts but not the ease.

That was until I found City Mini Single Stroller. 

My qualifications are really high so when I received this stroller I was expecting a lot out of it. Amazingly enough, it over-delivered all that it promises and so much more. To the point, it has now become the ONLY stroller we use traveling or not. The other stroller, which we’ve loyally used for almost three years, has now been placed in storage.

What I Love about our new Quick Fold Stroller

Package – It arrives in a thin package, right away a good sign it’s not going to take up too much.

Assembly – Putting it together was the fun part. And so easy – that it’s almost like ‘no assembly required’. Just a couple of quick clicks of the wheels in place and viola!

Quick Fold Technology – it’s soooooo easy. You just grab the inside strap that lays flat along the seat.

Then pull up and it’s folded. One hand! And bam it’s done.

Durability – the carriage can hold up to 50 pounds. However, we’ve already managed to test it on a number of occasions with my nine year old regressing to babyhood. And it can definitely hold the max weight capacity and more!

Brakes – the brake is at the bottom of the stroller and a quick stomp with your foot keeps it from going anywhere.

Compartments – the bottom has a huge storage area that can easily fit a baby bag or backpack and a lot more. Plus on the back of the seat is another handy pocket that can fit the essentials.

Sun Protection – we live in an extremely sunny place. We literally can not exist with out sunscreen and a sun canopy. This stroller has a large one that keeps my child completely covered with a small sun roof on top.

Reclining seat – you can have your child seated up straight, or almost in a laying down position.  The nob is easy to maneuver and secures in place.

Plus, you can have them totally reclined and see you from the back

And if you want them to sleep or it’s chilly out, there is a weather proof cover to place over it.

The Ride – this is one of the smoothest rides yet. It’s as though you’re driving in a twelve cylinder car. It feels like you’re floating along and the wheel in the front rotates easily and agilely to go with the pace and terrain.

Where to Buy It

They have tons of locations all over the world. I found the Baby Jogger website to be my best friend. I was able to read all about it, have help with questions, and quick and secure method of payment.

  2. I wish they made these when mine were little. I really disliked the little umbrella strollers. We even tried to extend the handles, so we wouldn’t have to bend over to push them. This looks great.

    I love a good travel stroller. It’s cool that it folds that way because then it forces all the little pieces that end up on the seat to get off the stroller.
