Help me pick a stroller out of these 3

Ok I've narrowed it down to these 3 lightweight strollers. Help me choose because I can't!

Option 1- http://www.albeebaby.com/baby-jogger...r-in-kiwi.html (I'd order it in red)

Option 2- http://www.albeebaby.com/maclaren-tr...k-bubbles.html

Option 3- http://www.albeebaby.com/maxi-cosi-p...illy-pink.html

Re: Help me pick a stroller out of these 3

I voted for #1 because I prefer the three wheel style to the boxy 4 wheel style. I also like the unisex color...I'm big on unisex. IDK if you're planning on more kids or not, but you may not want to use a pink one for a boy, KWIM? Maybe you would, but I wouldn't. And if you decided to sell it if you have a boy I've noticed on our craigslist that pink baby gear seems like it doesn't sell as well.

Re: Help me pick a stroller out of these 3

I voted for the BJ because I have a BJCMD (double) and I LOVE it. It's a solid stroller, the sunshade is awesome, the fold is easy and compact. I dont' know the specs on the one you are looking at but the city mini has a high weight limit. If you are able to use a belly bar and snack tray, that is a must for me, so I'd also get that. My one complaint about BJ strollers is that you have to buy all the accessories separately and that really brings up the price.

I prefer the Mac. They are SUPER light and the carry straps are awesome. I think a BJ is too much stroller for quick trips. At almost 16.8 pounds, it weighs more than my P3 (16.1 pounds, per Target's website). The Mac is less than 12 pounds, and you can sling it over your shoulder.

They have the first two at my BRU if you wanted to see them in person.

Re: Help me pick a stroller out of these 3

I picked Option 3 it looks like it'd give the child some room to move around a little bit doesn't seem so cramped. Option 1 just looked too small didn't seem like it would have a lot of room to move around a little. Option 2 I couldn't find the weight max. Never mind I reread the info on Option 2 and found where weight max is 55lbs. That would be a major plus but the seating area seems just as small as option 1.

I picked option 2. I have the Quest and absolutely love it! We have tried sooo many strollers and this is the best one-easy to push w/one hand, lightweight, durable, she can nap in it, easy to clean-all around well made stroller!

I picked #1.

The Perle has a super short back so it will be outgrown soon. I was looking at that one as well.
You can see just how short it is.


I HATE Maclarene. Will never own one.


ETA: The Micro will last for a LONG time.

Re: Help me pick a stroller out of these 3

I don't know, as I am not very good at picking unless I went to test drive them. I tend to go for super light weight stollers, that are easy and compact for the car trunk. And the smoothness of the wheels, how they turn, etc.

I went with a Peg perigo, because it is universal in that it holds any baby carrier, plus it folds in HALF! Not just so that the wheels come up to the handles, but it compacts even further by folding sideways too! And its super light weight with great moving and steering control. Plus it has a step on the back for an older child. Super easy to open and close. LOL. I sound like an advertisement...we just love ours!

#3... it is the only one that comes with a rain cover.

You can't go wrong with a Mac, though
