The Quick-Fold City Tour™ from Baby Jogger
When baby Blue was born, A was 2 years 7 months and Mr J and I naively thought he would no longer need a pushchair. *facepalm* We were so, so wrong; he is currently a threenager who puts listening right at the bottom of his to-do list so more often than not, if we really need to get something done, he definitely needs a pushchair and even if we do let him have a runaround, his little legs end up getting more tired than I thought so we were excited to put the new City Tour™ by Baby jogger through it's paces.
The City Tour™ claims to be ultra-portable, lightweight and compact; it has quick-fold technology and promises the user will be able to fold it down using only one hand and comes with a backpack-style bag that meets carry-on requirements for many modes of transportation (ideal for hand luggage on the plane)! Does it really live up to all of the above? We've been trying it our for over a week now so read on for our thoughts.
Our verdict? It takes some practice, but you really can fold the City Tour™ down with one hand and it is oh-so-handy when you're in a bit of a rush. It's also a sturdy pram and does great on even the bumpiest of terrains (we tried!). The multi-position seat is great for naptime on-the-go and Archie loves the peekaboo flap in the canopy (also great for checking if they're sleeping without disturbing them). You have to purchase the raincover seperately but the canopy is huge and also 50+ SPF protected so great for the Summer and Winter months.
Thankfully, the 5 point harness keeps my toddler well and truly in (he's quite the houdini when he wants to be) and there's even plenty of room left (and he's almost 3) so considering the little ones can use it from 6 months, it's a great investment that'll last a long time.
