A possible solution for a lightweight stroller.

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.

At last count, I’ve tried 10 strollers over the past 6 1/2 year. Crazy right? They all have their pros and cons. I’ve found, over time, that different strollers suit different needs. The stroller I may use for a walk to the grocery store isn’t the same as the one I’d use at the zoo, or even for a trip across the country.

Having to lug around a heavy stroller when it’s not needed is no fun at all, so I thought I’d give the Urbini Hummingbird a try. It boasts a weight limit of 50 pounds and 45 inches tall, so in a pinch, my oldest would squeak by, and it would still work for my toddler too. With a five point harness, I know they’d stay put – which is important when you need to keep them contained.

Pros:
Light weight – we’re talking 7 lbs so it’s easy to manage
One handed fold – really. No latches, just a button, perfect when you’re holding a baby with one hand.
Good size shopping basket, but I would not overload it.
Easy to push on smooth surfaces.
Fun, bright colors. – This is always important especially when traveling. All of those black strollers look the same!

Cons:
Minimal recline – I would not recommend this stroller for naps
Wheels are not practical for much beyond the mall and even sidewalks
Not recommended for babies not sitting up – the incline isn’t deep enough
Can be tippy for kids nearing the weight limit – especially on inclines.
Wheel brakes not the easiest to engage.

Still, I’m not convinced this is the right lightweight stroller for me or my kids. Even with the convenience of the lightweight design and cheery colors, that’s not enough. My little guy liked it well enough, but I really need a set of wheels that works for more than just him.

I recommend you head to your local Walmart and check one out for yourself and see if it suits your families needs. I do not personally think it’s the right one for my family, but it might still work for you.
