“Baby Jogger: City Mini Stroller”

There was something about this stroller that drew me in. I wasn’t sure if it was the attractiveness, the numerous amounts of accessories you can attach or the fact that Baby Jogger is such an outstanding and reputable name in the industry. It wasn’t until the moment I opened the box that I knew it wasn’t just one of those reasons but ALL of them… and more! This stroller seriously rocks my world. Everything from putting the stroller together to folding it for storing has been so easy.

The City Mini is Baby Jogger’s lightweight stroller. It is the perfect stroller to take anywhere. It is lightweight enough for quick trips to the park, running around doing errands and even for traveling. The quick and easy folding is also what helps to make this stroller the perfect stroller for on the go. Out of the 5 years I have been using strollers, I have never once owned or seen a stroller that can fold with seriously just one hand.

 

Here’s a quick overview of this fantastic stroller:

The City Mini captures the essence of urban mobility. Its lightweight design makes it perfect for running errands or all day excursions in the urban jungle.

  • Patented Quick-Fold Technology – allows you to fold your stroller in one simple step
  • Swivel front wheel for quick and agile maneuverability can lock into place for long distance strolling
  • 8″ quick-release EVA wheels with sealed ball bearings
  • Padded seat reclines to a near flat position with a vented seat top and retractable weather cover
  • Patented universal accessory mounting bracket – accessorize your stroller with ease
  • Large multi-position sun canopy with clear view windows
  • Rounded handlebar for pushing comfort
  • Front wheel suspension provides a smooth comfortable ride
  • Seat back storage compartment
  • Under seat storage basket
  • Adjustable five-point safety harness with shoulder pads and buckle cover
  • Rear parking brake
  • Fold strap to keep stroller folded for transportation or storage
  • 50 lb. weight capacity on stroller

If I had to write all the reasons City Mini was a great stroller, I would be writing for hours. So instead I decided to make this video so I could show you just how awesome everything is. Sometimes pictures just don’t cut it. Enjoy!

 

This stroller can not get any better… can it? Oh it can!

The City Mini has SO many different accessories you can buy to really customize it to best suit your needs.

1- Child Tray: The Baby Jogger Child Tray features a convenient baby cup holder and a durable easy to clean

2- Baby Jogger Universal Parent Console: The Baby Jogger Universal Parent Console attaches to the handlebar of your single or double Baby Jogger stroller. This accessory provides a cup holder, insulated cooler pouch and an additional storage compartment for a cell phone, keys or wallet

3- Belly Bar: Baby Jogger’s Adjustable Belly Bar provides your baby with a soft padded area to hold onto when the stroller is in use. It can be adjusted with the push of a button to suit the height of your child.

4- Baby Jogger Cooler Bag: The Baby Jogger Cooler Bag is designed to keep food or drinks cold. It is compatible with Baby Jogger single strollers and will hold up to six 12 oz. drink cans or baby bottles.

5- Liquid Holster – The Ultimate Self-Leveling Drink Holder: A great accessory for active parents, the Liquid Holster from Baby Jogger is a self-leveling drink holder that sways with the motion of the stroller to help prevent spills. Designed to fit almost every stroller currently on the market with round or square tubing, the Liquid Holster is easily clamped over the existing frame tube and requires two screws to be tightened.

6- Rain / Wind Canopy: The Baby Jogger Rain and Wind canopy is custom designed to fit each model of Baby Jogger stroller. This accessory completely encloses the front and sides of the Baby Jogger stroller while providing ventilation. This stroller accessory also prevents fogging for optimal visibility for your baby. City Mini Rain/Wind Canopies are made from a BPA and PVC free material.

7- Glider Board: The Glider Board attaches to the rear axle of your single or double Baby Jogger stroller and provides a space for an older child to ride along. The Glider Board is distance adjustable from the stroller to accommodate taller children, features a non-slip surface and conveniently stows out of the parent’s way when not in use. Holds up to 45 lbs.

8- Belly Bar Console: The Baby Jogger Belly Bar Console attaches to our single or double belly bar and provides easy access storage for your child’s snacks and toys.

9- Bassinet/Pram: The Baby Jogger Bassinet/Pram is a traditional hard cased pram with plush padding and an adjustable sun canopy. It is rear facing to provide easy access to your baby as you push your stroller and even comes with our popular car seat adaptor. The Baby Jogger Bassinet/Pram is offered in black. Compatible with single strollers only. Max. weight capacity: 25 lbs.


For our family the Glider Board was something I knew we would benefit from. My oldest is at the age where he is too big to push in a stroller (not weight wise- but age wise) yet if we are going somewhere where there is a lot of walking he gets tired easily and wants us to carry him. That is so tiring on my husband and myself. So when I learned about the Glider Board I was so excited! It was so easy to install on the City Mini and simple to use. I love the fact that it conveniently stores on the back of the stroller when not in use.

Not only does this make our lives easier but my son absolutely loves to ride on it.

My only complaint, and I wouldn’t really call it a complaint, is that it can be a little difficult to push when the Glider Board is in use. Only because my foot will hit it occasionally. But hey, I’d rather that happen then have to carry my son when he gets tired!

Overall, this is definitely the best stroller I have ever used. Even my parents love it. My dad commented about how it is great for grandparents. He could never figure out my other strollers. He wouldn’t remember how to close them, open them and recline the seats. So when I brought over the City Mini for the first time he couldn’t believe how easy everything was. Both my parents will specifically request I bring the City Mini over when they are watching my kids.

We aren’t the only people raving about the City Mini. Check out some well known faces who are also fans:

    I have the City Mini (same colors too!) and absolutely love it!! When the man at BRU demonstrated how it folded I was like “sold!” :). I really wanted a jogging stroller that would provide a comfy, smooth ride, but that would also fit in my small trunk – this stroller is just that. I bought the parent console which, to me, is a must have! My only complaint is that the basket underneath is hard to get to. You really can’t put much in it, or at least not anything big.
