City Select 5
So here we go the final stroller review! In many opinions I have saved the best for last – the City Select by Baby Jogger. I have to agree this is a pretty awesome stroller if you are looking for a great single and a great double I am pretty sure that this takes the cake!
For those of you mommas on the stroller hunt – if you haven’t heard of the City Select this is the time for you to check it out. After testing out this stroller I will guarantee that you will love it! It’s pretty scary making a guarantee online but that is how confident I am. Do you own a City Select? What do you love about it?
Here is my pro & con list of this baby…
- Great single stroller that can become a double! This means you will not have a garage full of strollers.
- Turns on a dime and is very easy to push – the wheels move effortlessly and the handle bar can adjust for a comfortable push
- Many different seating positions…..check them out! If that doesn’t impress you I am not sure what will 😉
- When you are in ‘double mode’ it still feels like a single
- Frame folds easily
- Fits comfortably in most trunks
- Adjustable hood for your older child
- Higher price point although you will get great use! Each item like the 2nd seat , rain cover, car seat adapters and bassinet are separate purchases
- On the heavier side
- You have to put the 2nd seat on/off when getting in and out of your vehicle
- The seat was a bit of a tight squeeze for my 3 yr old Kellan
- If you are using it as a double and both kiddos are napping you can only use it in one seat position to get a comfortable recline
Overall, I really loved the City Select and would highly recommend it to all you moms & dads who are looking for a stroller that is designed to maneuver great and can be used as a double down the road.
Stroller shopping is not easy and I am hoping that my ‘little blog series’ helped answer some questions. Just make sure you purchase a stroller that fits your lifestyle – if you walk/run daily and love the outdoors I am sure the BOB would make you happy, If you are in and out of your car the City Mini Double would be a good option and if you want it all in one stroller the City Select will be worth every penny!
Please feel free to comment any more questions you may have and I will happily answer them!
We popped into the Baby Jogger booth to learn a bit about two of our most popular strollers here at Snuggle Bugz – the City Mini and the City Select. I’m truly amazed at the craftsmanship and complete genius that’s behind these strollers, particularly the folding! Check out the video below as I interview Bob from Baby Jogger about the two strollers.
Another Snuggle Bugz Stroller Day has come and gone. If you bought your baby’s new ride- congrats!
I always find stroller shopping a lot of fun and something that the hubby’s genuinely enjoy (definitely more exciting than picking out that breast pump ;))
I actually went twice this past weekend to help out some close friends/family pick out their stroller. Both purchased the City Select by Baby Jogger (I love this stroller), I know they will love it also! I seriously never experienced a City Select owner who hasn’t loved their stroller…the only complaint that I have heard is that they don’t have a great cup holder- in fact they didn’t have a cup holder at all! We all know how vital a good cup holder is!!!
Well….(drumroll)….no more cup holder complaint!! Yes, City Select has come out with a new cup holder – seriously these people are smart cookies. They hear a complaint, they fix the problem – love it! If you own a City Select (and I know many of you do) you may will want to purchase this new City Select addition!
Speaking of additions if you are a City Select owner what are your accessory must-haves?
I don’t own one (yet) but if I did these would be mine:
1. City Select Cup holder – hands down!
2. City Select Child tray – kids enjoy their cup holder just as much as we do!
3. Baby Jogger Glider board – Kellan is at the age where this would be a perfect addition. Can you believe the City Select can actually accommodate three little people- love!
4. Baby Jogger Universal Parent Console – if you are anything like me, I always lose my keys in the bottom of my diaper bag. The console would save me from emptying my entire diaper bag in the parking lot to find my runaway keys.
There is no perfect stroller but the City Select is pretty close!
I have been in this business for a few years now, (almost 5 to be exact), I attend buying shows often… but I can honestly say that as the years go on it becomes more and more difficult to impress me. I mean really WOW me into thinking a new product is an absolute must have, when I just can’t stop thinking about it, when Snuggle Bugz just couldn’t exist without it! It doesn’t happen every buying show, it doesn’t happen every time I search for new fun products, but I have been WOWED for over a year now!!
The Baby Jogger City Select is completely impressive!! I have been in love with this stroller since I first saw it, so much so that I needed to “borrow” one from the store just so I could guarantee that it really was as impressive as I thought! As I went on a family vacation to Florida, three kidz in tow ages, 4 months, 2 years, and 4 years. With one baby strapped onto me, and two children in the stroller our adventures in Disney World began.
Although this stroller is originally purchased as a single stroller it can very easily be converted into a double stroller, yet still pushes and feels like a single. There are over 16 positions that the seats can be placed in, and I am pretty sure we used as many as we possibly could, with two children facing each other, one facing me, and one out, once reclined sleeping while the other watching the parade. The best part was, when I decided to do some shopping with only one of the Snuggle Kidz, I easily took off the second seat, and took a single stroller out on the Promenade! Apparently I wasn’t too far off the mark on this one as it just keeps winning awards! The Baby Jogger City Select has Recently won the NAPPA Gold Award (National Parenting Publication Award), and has also won PTPA (Parent Tested Parent Approved) Award! Congratulations to Baby Jogger! This is an amazing stroller deserving of great success!
