Baby Jogger City Tour Stroller Review
My family and I will be travelling to Miami at the end of this month to visit family and although my kids are older now I will do way too much fast walking to expect them to keep up all the time so we need to bring a stroller(s). At first I was going to bring my old double BOB (which I still can’t life without) and check it. Well when I began reading about travelling with bigger strollers and not being able to gate check them plus the amount of strollers that get damaged or destroyed I was shocked. So I decided to look into small lightweight stroller for travel and I came across the Baby Jogger City Tour stroller which is small enough you can carry it on! This got me very excited so I began to research the Baby Jogger City Tour stroller and if the kids would fit in them but I couldn't really find much on using the stroller with bigger kids. In the meantime I add one to my Amazon cart to watch the price. Brand new Baby Jogger City Tour stroller are $199 and on Amazon they are $159.
Let's start with the basic stats of the Baby Jogger City Tour stroller it weighs 14lbs and the child weight limit is 45lbs. The seat is about 8” deep, 12” across and 17” high with an additional 7” between seat back and canopy (24” in total height). The canopy has a large peekaboo window and 50 SPF of protection. The seat back can recline almost flat making suitable starting at three or four months (depending of head control). Since this is a compact stroller the underseat basket is small but can fit a small diaper bag there is also a zip compartment to store the travel bag (included with stroller with a handle and backpack straps making for easy transportation of the stroller).
At 6.5y my daughter is almost 43’ and about 43 lbs and my son 4.5y is about 41” and about 40 lbs. So on the larger side for stroller use but they both fit in the stroller (see pictures) and seem excited to take it on our trip. I did try attaching my Lascal BuggyBoard Maxi Ride-On Stroller Board which worked as long as the attachment pieces could still be pushed to the side when folding the stroller. That being said I could not really push the combined over 80lbs of kids easily using the ride on board and will not be taking it travelling with us. See picture for Lascal BuggyBoard Maxi Ride-On Stroller Board attachment. I am not sure how solid this installation would work over time (the Lascal site doesn’t have info for the City Tour whether compatible or not).
Do you own a great compact travel stroller or a City Tour? What do you love about it?
