Babies R Us Umbrella Stroller Review


Both versions of this cheap umbrella stroller garner positive feedback for comfort, ease of use, and overall value. The pricier model comes with a parent pouch attached to the handles.

According to Babies R Us Umbrella Strollers reviews, most people who have bought either of the two models are fans. On the Babies R Us website reviews of the slightly richer (by $10) version commend the compact and light size, ease of use, comfort, and stability. Users highlight the safety features (e.g., sturdy harness, good brakes) and the convenience for travel and daily outings. Parents like being able to throw the stroller into the trunk, say it's very easy to push around (even for kids), and report that little passengers are content. Babies R Us Umbrella Strollers reviews for the more basic model stick with similar themes. Several reviewers, however, express a desire for an under-seat storage basket (absent from both models) and one says the front wheels struggle when confronted with obstacles in their path. The height of the handles is an issue for a couple of users who must lean over a bit while pushing despite standing no taller than 5 feet, 5 inches.

The Babies R Us Umbrella strollers (starting at $20 and $30) are the lightest of those we researched: 6.5 pounds for the $30 model and 7.6 pounds for the $20 model. Both versions are very simple strollers with rear brakes and a sun canopy; at the higher price you get a small parent pouch that's attached to the handles and a larger sun canopy that retracts. Each model holds children up to 35 pounds and carries a one-year manufacturer's warranty.

Where to buy

No frills, for sure, but for the price you can't beat it. This is a sturdy stroller that garners favorable user reviews. The light weight makes it super easy to maneuver, fold and lift, and as a second stroller or even one for daily chores, this is a good choice. Unfortunately, Babies R Us is the only vendor.
