Topic Wiki

I am trying to put a list together of the pro's and cons of the main bassinet strollers:

UppaBaby (UB)
PRO:
so easy to push
great basket (HUGE)
the bassinet is easy to take on and off
the wheels are easy to remove if need be
folds in a sinch
handle bar is great for tall and short people
the rumble seat lets the kid sit like a human being (not slide down)
the break is easy to push and doesnt break easily
the lay back position is great for kids who need to sleep on the go
the sun visor is a life savor
option to use with car seat (need to purchase the adapter)
fantastic customer service

con:
its wide but still easy to push
it can be heavy for some
the lock to close the stroller (it broke on mine)

i dont see why u need to focus on a double stroller when you have one child. Get a stroller for one- and i"h when you have a second youll get another... Cus who knows what theyll have in another few years... and besides... u can always get a 100$ stroller for one of ur kids when their bigger if u have a double stroller- and sell a double or a single... they sell very fast. I would say stick to one- and do alot of research and make sure what you WANT is in that stroller... I happen to have a 600$ stroller (not a bugaboo) and i love my 125$ stroller better.... i love my other one as well- but its big and bulky- as apposed to light and easy. focus on whats best for u- and go to the store and try it out....

if the stroller is an amazing single and happens to have the double option as well, then why not?

And therefore it will be hard to find other color hoods.

Why would I need a different hood? Seems like being discontinued is a good thing-it's cheaper now.

Still don't see why you need another hood, doesn't it come with a nice hood?

I have the city select. i think the uppa baby vista is a little better, but the city select is much cheaper. i paid $600 for the 2011 city select including the bassinet and second seat.

I have the Uppababy and am thrilled with the carriage and the customer service.  I think it fits the bill for what you are looking for . 

1)It can be changed from the bassinet, to forward facing or back facing very easily.
2)It is great to push around
3)It is easy to fold (and can even be folded while the seat is in forward facing position, unlike most bigger carriages).
4)Check out their website they let you know which car seats it will work for.
5)The wheels are not air filled or plastic.
The basket is very useful and large, the hood has a great sunshade etc.  You can also buy an attachment to convert it to a double carriage (if you need it in the future).

There are so many features on this carriage that I really like.  I would make sure to only buy it thru a geniune dealer otherwise they won't cover the warrenty.  I loved the carriage so much, I bought their stroller as well!  I think you can get the carriage for a little over $600.

I had the city mini and bugaboo cameleon we liked the city mini much better, though it does have down sides, you cant have the baby face you and the seat doesnt sit up all the way but its a breeze to fold. STAY AWAY FROM BUGABOO WE ONLY HAD TZORIOS WITH IT. the straps dont hold its a pain to fold it takes up your whole trunk IT CONSTANTLY FALLS INTO CRACK, the list goes on ...........

I also have an uppababy and love it.  It was great while leaving in NY (besides for the subway) but now I live in a city where you go from house to car to store to car.  the UppaBaby is a bit bulky for that and takes up a lot of room in the trunk.  But it is super comfy for the kids!

We have the Britax B-Ready stroller which has a single/double option and can fold with the second seat.
We liked it more than the city select single/double.

We LOVE it!!
