Britax Blink Stroller Review

  • Jan 29, 2010

Pompeii had no time to "Blink"

Britax Blink Review

I've always been fascinated by the story of Pompeii. The leisurely class, relaxing at their Romanesque stolen from Greek style marble villas, outside gazing at their fountains and gardens, or indoors at their magnificent murals and frescoes...when suddenly, a wave of molten lava roars down from Mt. Vesuvius, encasing men, women, children, dogs, art, and everyday household objects, under layers and layers of ash and pumice...It is not the gory details that interest me, it is the details of their lives and how they lived, forever frozen for 1700 years in bedrock tombs.

So I was very excited when I heard about the "Pompeii" exhibit opening at the museum. And naturally, seeing as how I am Strollerqueen, I started thinking about what stroller to take! I think the Britax Blink was a good choice. Small enough to zip around the statuary, yet stable enough to carry enough bags of stuff for all day. You can see it loaded up here, in front of the statue that greets you at the entrance. Which alas, was the last photo I was allowed to take

inside. Which was fine. There was still more "art" to see outdoors. The kids had fun in this "Tupperware display." And notice how well it matches the "Double Dots" pattern. How could I have known? Heehee.

The Blink reclines with a back drawstring, which is what we are seeing on most strollers these days. It goes down about half-way, similar to the Maclaren Quest. It is sufficient for an older baby to nap.

It has some nice features, like bigger than average wheels, a sun visor in the canopy, and a back carry strap. The basket and fold are pretty Mac-like. In fact the whole stroller is pretty Mac-like, though it's weight is more Techno than Quest.

The legrest is pretty long, which is a feature we really like at this age. Oh, and one other cool thing--it comes with it's own travel bag. Great for keeping it clean in an airplane or train cargo hold, or even just in the car, or for storage.

Very fun to read. I like your review style, Ms. Strollerqueen. Is the Pompeii exhibit going on now? I will have to look into that. LACMA is one of my favorite places on earth. Welcome to Lunch!

Thank you! I think it is over now, unfortunately. It was fabulous!

Great photos!  I've never taken a baby or toddler out on an excursion on my own before, so I never had to think about what stroller to take where, but it all make sense now.  Thanks for enlightening me!  On the topic of Romanesque content, you should check out @andrewjt's list of 10 Favorite Things to See in Rome.  Might help with your stroller planning if you make it out there with your tots! :)

Ah, your day will come! :) And sure enough, I would LOVE to take the tots to Rome!

The new Blink stroller from Britax is a compact, fashionable stroller that is loaded with features yet priced well below comparable premium brands. All wheel suspension, layback recline, adjustable leg rest and an oversized canopy will ensure the travelling comfort of little ones. A clever fold release mechanism, linked rear brakes and an ingenious carry strap make the stroller equally as pleasing for parents. It’s the perfect stroller for travelling by car or plane – in fact a carry bag is even included.
