“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Urbini. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for participating.”
My toddler has officially reached the “too heavy to carry all the time” stage, but he is not quite ready for the “walk around all the time” stage.
When my kiddos get to be a certain size, carrying them around for long periods of time begins to no longer be an option. It absolutely hurts my back.
Of course my first thought was to pick up an umbrella stroller, but they have no storage, are uncomfortable for the rider and driver, and typically fall apart after a few uses. I do own a double stroller, but it is too big and inconvenient for just the one child.
Thanks to Urbini, I was given a Hummingbird Stroller to review that has provided me with both a solution to all these stroller issues along with giving my body a break.
The assembly of my stylish peacock colored Urbini Hummingbird baby stroller was simple. All I needed to do was put on the wheels. My little guy was so excited he was trying to help me put it together.
The Hummingbird actually weighs in at less than 7 pounds and is easy to open and close. It comes with a thin cushioned seat, padded 5 point harness, and adjustable cover for shade. It also has a basket below for storage that can carry up to 10 pounds.
As I tested it out, I realized that I could lift it up and open it with one hand, this is great for when I am multitasking with my kids. In addition, it also stores easily in the trunk of my car and is small enough to be left at my front door.
This stroller maneuvers well and is easy to get in and out of places. We have visited the grocery store, the museum, and gone to the park. I was able to take it all over the place since it has a front wheel lock for rough terrain, and rear wheel locking.
Update: After using the stroller for a couple months now, I have noticed that the wheels will stop if I hit up against a ledge on older sidewalks or roads where the cement has settled. I suggest on these types of uneven surfaces to keep an eye out on whats ahead and adjust your speed to avoid tipping the stroller forward.
There are no drink holders, but it does have adequate space below to store a few items like a purse, small lunchbox, and snacks. This makes it ideal for short trips where you do not need to carry a lot of items.
It has a swivel arm bar across the front as well, that it is flexible and opens and closes with two buttons. I did notice that if you don’t completely close this and line up the inside with the outside gray buttons, it won’t release.
I suggest gently pushing them in and then pulling if you are having difficulty.
Have you had an opportunity try this stroller out yet? What features and benefits do you like most?
I’ve been happy with the quality of this item, and most importantly my little guy has been comfortable. I am so thankful to have a way to transport him around and also save my back.
