Design

Design

The Baby Jogger City Tour Stroller was designed specifically for on the go families that are looking for either a simple and maneuverable secondary stroller or a travel stroller. The City Tour Stroller is the lightest smallest folding stroller that Baby Jogger has designed. It is perfect to be used on a plane, busy city streets, crowded amusement parks, or anywhere. The stroller is so small and compact when folded up and it is designed to have a one-handed fold feature with auto-securing locks so it stays secure and compact when transporting the stroller or even just storing it. The stroller also has a convenient carrying handle when folded so you can move it simply and easily. Included with the stroller is a carrying bag that easily fits the entire stroller inside of it without making any adjustments. It has both a carrying handle as well as ergonomic backpack straps so you can be hands-free when traveling which is a great feature for being busy and on the go. The carrying bag also stores away in the onboard zipper pocket for even more convenience and ease of use. The stroller seat is designed with a one hand recline feature that has several different adjustments so you can make sure your little one is comfortable for riding or napping. The recline allows the stroller to be used as early as 3 months old. The front wheels of the stroller have a 360 swivel feature which is great but in case you want some added security you can lock the front wheels to stay straight for terrain or simply long distance adventures. Plus the stroller also has a 3-panel canopy with UV protection to keep the sun off of your little ones face. The canopy has a mesh peek a bo window so you can keep an eye on them and also give them a little extra air flow on warm days. Overall the design of the City Tour Stroller is absolutely perfect for traveling or simple adventures around town.
Origin

Origin

Baby Jogger created the very first jogging stroller ever in 1984 and solved a problem active parents were facing. Since then they have been motivated by their own children and by everyday problems that parents face. They have evolved significantly as a brand since they developed the first jogger and have expanded to create strollers that are able to keep up with today's fast-paced parent's lifestyles. At Baby Jogger their goal is to provide families with strollers that answer their problems and allow them to do more. Having a child should empower parents to enjoy life, not make them sacrifice things due to convenience or travel issues. Baby Jogger is an American company run by parents and engineers who get inspired when they successfully find answers to give you and your family more opportunities to enjoy and engage with the world around you.
Comfort

Comfort

You wouldn’t want to be uncomfortable all day long and neither does your child. The City Tour Stroller has some key features intended to make you and your child comfortable while using this product. For your child, there is the padded seat that provides a comfy place to sit and rest during your adventures. The seat also has a recline feature which is adjustable to allow your child to be comfortable in a deep recline, sitting up, or slightly reclined. There is also a canopy that provides protection from the sun or rain and includes a mesh peek a boo window so your little one can see you and also have even extra airflow.

When the seat is deeply reclined you can also lift the back cover up to give your child even more airflow, or keep it closed to keep them warm and protected. There is also a leg rest to add even more comfort for your little one. For you, as the parent, the stroller is 38 inches from the ground to the handle and is not adjustable. This is a good height for someone with average height but if you are over 6 feet tall the stroller may be uncomfortable for you to push.

The handle is comfortable and easy to grip handle. The storage basket adds extra convenience and comfort for the parent since they can bring their necessities along with them in a hands-free way. The easy to fold one-handed feature is also great for comfort since it makes packing up fast and easy. The stroller is also very easy and comfortable to push which rocks for parents. Overall the City Tour Stroller is very for both parents and children.
Ease of Use

Ease of Use

Baby Jogger’s goal, when it came to designing the City Tour stroller was to make a compact and easy to use stroller that parents could take when they travel or simply use around busy places. The City Tour has so many features that give it the ultimate easy to use design. For starters the stroller as a one-handed fold design which is so fast, easy and convenient you won’t ever complain about having to fold this stroller. When folded the stroller easily and quickly fits into the included storage bag that has backpack straps for even more ease of use and convenience. The folded stroller is amazing because it fits literally anywhere, in overhead storage containers in a plane, the trunk of a really small car, a closet, under a bed, really anywhere you have some extra space. Not only is this stroller easy to store though, but it is also super easy to clean. The material used is wipeable so in case of dirty feet or snack spills, you don’t have to worry about a complicated cleaning process. The stroller also has a lot of adjustable features like the harness, reclining seat, and canopy to allow your child for the longest use and the most comfortable settings.
Portability

Portability

A travel stroller is meant to be compact and portable. Otherwise, there would be no benefit to them. The City Tour Stroller is the perfect combination of a small, lightweight, compact stroller with all of the features and overall usefulness of a typical stroller. It is a great option as a secondary stroller or a simple travel option. The small size, when folded up, is perfect to allow the stroller to be really portable. It is small enough to come with you on a plane or to fit in a car. The stroller also has a carrying bag with backpack straps to add even more portability. You can easily carry it with you over longer distances than a typical stroller with just a handle. Plus the stroller is also portable when it is fully open and in use. It has 4 wheels with the two wheels in front being 360 swivels or lockable so you can take it on more terrain or for longer distances. The City tour is the perfect stroller for portability as a travel option for busy parents who want to be able to do more with their little ones.
Safety

Safety

When using a stroller of any kind one of the most important factors is whether or not your little one is going to be safe while the stroller is in use. Baby Jogger is a brand focused on not just being user-friendly and innovative but also providing safe options for parents and children. The City Tour Stroller has several features to ensure the safety of your child. There is an adjustable 5 point harness that grows with your child to keep them safe and secure the whole time they use the stroller. There are also brakes on the wheels to park the stroller and also to lock the front swivel wheels in a straight line to add more stability when on the terrain. The auto locking feature also ensures the stroller is securely latched when using the onehanded fold feature so it won’t accidentally open and cause issues for anyone. The fabric is free from any harmful chemicals or toxins so you can feel assured you and your little one will be safe while using the stroller. The canopy also has a peek a boo feature with a mesh insert so you can not only see your little one the whole time but you can also give them some extra airflow if it is particularly hot outside while using the stroller. Overall the safety features of the City Tour Stroller make it a safe and reliable option for travel and everyday use for parents and their children too.
Price Range

Price Range

The Baby Jogger City Tour Stroller is a great value for the cost. Although the stroller is designed as a travel stroller which means it will be a secondary edition for a lot of families it is well worth every penny spent. Bigger strollers that accommodate infant car seats or have different features cost significantly more and are not compact and able to travel like the City Tour Stroller is. The ability to take this stroller with you on a plane and the easy steering, comfort features, adjustability, and a one-handed fold feature make it worth paying a little bit extra for. This stroller may not be the best choice for a family looking to get by with just the essentials but this is certainly a great choice for the family looking to take their child on more adventures and enjoy and embrace life without having to make sacrifices due to convenience. This stroller is a good investment as a travel option.

Conclusion

The City Tour Stroller is a great representation of that vision. This stroller is ideal for on the go parents. It is so small, compact, easy to use, and easy to maneuver, so it is perfect for traveling. The small size when folded and the convenience of the carrying bag make it the right size to take with you on a pane or fit in the small trunk.

The one-handed fold feature makes it a breeze to fold the stroller up when you need it to be smaller. The adjustability of the harness and recline position is great to grow and accommodate your child to keep them comfortable. Plus the 5 point harness adds so much safety for your little one. The stroller also has a convenient storage area for you to keep a diaper bag or other essentials.
