Baby Jogger City Mini

  • Mar 12, 2010

I purchased my City Mini in 2008 and have loved it from day one. At the time we were spending alot of time outdoors and my Maclaren Techno Classic wasn't cutting it the lack of ventilation alone was frustrating as I live in the deep south and my daughter would always be drenched in sweat with the canopy fully extended even while indoors. I started looking into 3wheel/jogger style strollers I really wasn't willing to give up the lightness of my mac but I new I needed something else. The weight limit was less the my mac so I was alittle hesitant but took the plunge and so glad that I did. I used my stroller a few months after buying it for the first time in disney and it was amazing. The fold was great for the buses b/c we didn't have to fold it up until the bus pulled up while other were unloading and folding their strollers much sooner and watching us in awe at how quickly we were able to fold the stroller up and walk on the bus.  The canopy is an awesome feature to seclude your little one from over stimulation when they need it.

I use my mini on a daily basis for my 6yr old who is disabled. She weighs 45 pounds of dead weight due to her lack of mobility. I am still able to push one handed the seat fits her nicely in width and height. I have ordered the PE board that Baby Jogger now distributes for the city mini to provide the back of the seat w/ more support it should be here w/in a couple of days and I will share more info on that when I receive it.

Accessories I have attached to my city mini are two of the valco baby universal cupholder, the bj snack tray, and I am awaiting the arrival of the belly bar, I also have two mommy hooks and a skip hop spark. 

ETA~ I just replaced my 2008 green seat w/ the 2009 stone seat and one difference that the two have is in the footwell the 08 has a textured rubber type of material where the 09 has a black mesh like material over the stone fabric. I am not sure how well this will hold up w/out tearing. 

ETA~ I have been using the new PE board in my mini for the past week and it is fabulous my biggest fear about the jogger style strollers was the lack of support and since I am not able to see them in person I decided to take a chance. It wasn't as big of a problem as I thought it would be but now having the PE board it is perfect and well worth the 8 dollars.

BABY JOGGER CITY MINI   .I was thinking, because of the success of the Valco Latitude on my last trip to court, I would take it's Doppleganger to court this next time. And the success of the new Baby Jogger City Mini has been nothing short of amazing.  http://babyjogger.com/cityminimain.htm  People love the Mini's light weight, huge canopy, and amazingly easy fold. The wheels are by no means all-terrain, but they do perform better outdoors than your average umbrella stroller. …

How easy is the fold? How compact?   Very easy to fold down with one hand.  Fits flat in the back of my minivan.      Is this good for tall children? Tall parents?   My husband is average height (5'10") and pushes the stroller easily.  It fits large children, my 3 year old son has room to grow in it.      Is the recline deep enough for newborns?   No, this stroller is not intended for newborns as it does not recline …

I bought the city mini thinking it was THE BEST THING in the world.       In hind sight, i should have done my research better because I do not like it.      The underneath basket is difficult to get to, and there is no where o hang a diaper bag. The stroller comes with a warning not to hang anything off the handle.... this is true as it WILL tip. I had it tip on me a few times. The other issue is because of the 3 wheel feature, and how high …

For example: How easy is the fold? How compact?   Fold is EXTREMELY EASY, compact and flat but can be wide-     Or: Is this good for tall children? Tall parents?      My son is a shorty, but it seems to have a generous seat- and while the handle is not adjustable it is tall so tall parents shoudl be ok-     Or: is the recline deep enough for newborns?      I don't know that the seat is suitable for a newborn since …

I started using the Baby Jogger's Citi mini jogging stroller (though they don't recommend you use it for jogging) and I love it. It is lightweight (16 lbs) and folds up with one pull which gives it a sexy quality for the mom who is not looking to lift weights every time she wants to take the stroller out of the car. I also like that it comes in orange or red and not just blue or pink.
