Review: Baby Jogger City Select

12 May 2012 / 2 comments

I have two boys  – a very large (off the charts in every aspect) 2 year-old and a 3 month-old.

When shopping for a double stroller, I wanted something stylish, functional, and easily maneuvered. The Baby Jogger City Select is the only one that met all of the criteria that my husband and I were looking for.

Pros: Baby Jogger City Select

  • Tandem! We did not want a side-by-side double stroller. This tandem stroller with ‘stadium style’ seating is narrow enough to fit through doorways, aisles, and clothing racks.
  • Functionality – 16 positions for double occupancy. Can be used from birth up. Great for two infants, two toddlers, or one of each. You can buy car-seat attachments and carry-cots to make this stroller extremely versatile.
  • Huge 3-part canopies. Each seat has it’s own extra-large canopy which can completely block the sun. These canopies also have peek-a-boo windows with magnetic closure.
  • Huge storage basket. I can fit my large diaper bag, my Mamas & Papas front carrier and shopping bags in the basket with both children in place.
  • Rubber tires. This was a huge plus in my book. The plastic wheels from my old Graco stroller just didn’t cut it. This stroller can move on all terrain.
  • Hand brake – speaks for itself.
  • Sleek & Solid silver frame
  • Extendable handlebar – 39″ to 42″ for taller parents.
  • Easy Fold – with a pull of the sides, the stroller folds right in half.
  • Can be a single or a double stroller in seconds – great for when I only have one child with me.

Cons: Baby Jogger City Select

  • Slightly large fold when both seats are attached. Takes up most of the trunk of my Ford Edge.
  • Price – on the expensive side. Can easily run you $850 with a second seat kit, infant bracket and a few accessories. But I think it was 100% worth it.
  • When you have a larger child in front, it can be a little hard to steer.

Overall – this was a fantastic buy. We  absolutely love this stroller.
