Here are the top umbrella strollers with their pros and cons to help you determine which umbrella stroller to buy in 2018:
Summer Infant 3D Lite Convenience Stroller
-Easy to fold up and carry on the go, even up a flight of stairs
– reclines fully allowing child to comfortably take naps
-The canopy is a good size for an umbrella stroller.
– there is a good amount of storage space.
– padding for the belt is attached,
– It sits quite low, and therefore a child may outgrow it quickly
– Doesn’t sit fully upright
– Somewhat shaky on rough terrain
-shoulder pads move freely and are sometimes easy to lose
-doesn’t stand when folded
GB Pockit lightweight stroller
Ultra-compact fold – perfect for parents who travel with their child by plane/ car/ train and use public transportation
Simple to store even at small apartment and in a small car
Very lightweight – you can carry it in your handbag effortlessly
Even suitable for older kids (even 6 y.o.!)
Removable and machine-washable seat fabric
Easy to navigate and steer with one hand
Slim and compact construction – perfect for narrow and crowded places like the mall, restaurants or Disneyland
Storage basket is easy to access
Handles are very comfortable for short and average parents and allow for one-hand pushing
Rather useless canopy – it doesn’t cover the baby from the sun and it’s very flimsy (often blows back)
Seat doesn’t recline at all
priced the highest of the three at…..
Folding and unfolding takes some practice, it’s a bit difficult at the beginning
Small wheels are suitable mainly for flat terrain, stuck in bigger cracks
Handles may feel too low for tall parents (over 6ft tall)
J is for Jeep Brand North Star Stroller
-the canopy has the best coverage of the three, great for harsh sunlight
-lightweight at ……lbs
1) Weighs just a hint under 10 pounds but can hold a child weighing up to 40 pounds.
2) Features a removable parent-pouch that can be used to store stuff like treats, keys, phone, books etc.
3) The padded seat is lined with nylon mesh. The seat can be rolled up to create a comfortable headrest/pillow. This arrangement also improves air circulation and keeps your kid cool on hot days.
5) Compact and hassle-free umbrella fold is very handy while traveling.
7) Ergonomic handle along with a cup-holder for parents. Height is 40 inches from the ground – the caregiver does not have to hunch forward while steering (unless it’s a tall person).
-no shoulder straps (It’s not a stroller for a large kid, and I feel a little uncomfortable with my 10-month-old in it, I rigged up a laptop shoulder strap to be safe)
1) Strangely, the manufacturer recommended age for this stroller is 9 months and above – this is a little high.
– does not recline (all the way?)
2) The back has very little scope for adjustment and hence the stroller is suitable only for a child who is able to sit up straight independently.
