First impression easy to fold attractive BUT after just 4 months... Straps too short, straps scagged quickly, wheels lock involuntary, wheels bald smooth early, wide hood needs to absolutely smother baby to attach rain cover which baby hates, extra parent console frayed and broken after limited use holding door keys and mobile phone and most shockingly rubber handle bar torn in 2 very uncomfortable to hold. Extra cosytoe footmuff material too slippery no attxhment ao falls down all the time... (read more)

Absolutely love this pram & glider board, previously had the iCandy Peach Bloosom but my 19 month was getting to big for the lower seat so decided to sell. We did buy the silvercross pop off a friend but I couldn't maneuver the pram and hold my 32 month olds hand plus he was still getting tired from walking so we tried the lascal buggy board but didn't fit properly and too faffy. I researched on the internet light weight prams with buggy boards and the baby jogger city mini was the best, I... (read more)

Ive had 3 buggies before (mothercare vesta, bugaboo bee and 3 wheeler all terrain). This is the lightest one by far. Can manage it one handed,so great in a supermarket if carrying a basket. The hood comes practically right over so no need for the raincover hassle if its a shower and great cover when sunny. Good for newborns but back may be a little hard, Ive used a winter muff to keep back soft for my baby. Downside ( but reason I bought it) very lightweight, dont put shopping on back bar...

I bought the baby jogger for my 6 month old son. I was looking for something lightweight, easy to use, easy to fold and store in my little boot! I wasn't looking to spend this much but it's definately worth the money. The one hand fold is amazing, and the big hood protects my little one from the sun. Me and my partner argue over who gets to push it around!
I wish I'd have discovered this pushchair before my son was born. It's the best thing we've bought him. I'd highly recommend this, I... (read more)

City Mini-Baby Jogger- What I love! Easy to fold up and put into vehicle with one hand. Love the sunshade and how big it is. I liked that you could attach almost any baby carrier to this stroller with the attachment(sold separately) Was able to buy a generic adult cupholder and it fit ok. Great for traveling, on the plane and in various vehicles.
Could be better: When infant carrier seat is attached the stroller is very top heavy and unstable because the carrier sits high up on the... (read more)

We have used the city mini from birth with no additional accessories except a fleece for added comfort. It is easy to steer, easy to fold, fits comfortably in the car (VW Golf), works fine on public transport, and is pretty good off-road and on stairs. Our baby is now 6 months and has always seemed confortable in it and sleeps really well in it when we are out and about. It's compact enough for storage at the bottom of the stairs in our flat. No complaints at all. (read more)

At first I thought this pushchair was amazing,easy to fold,lightweight but then 3 months of very light use and the front wheel wouldn't lock. 4 months in and only i've only had it back from repair for 6 weeks and the front wheel locks everytime I turn left or right...very frustrating when I was trying to get around town. Its off for reapir again now because they won't give me a refund! I hope you have more luck than me! (read more)

We bought this buggy from John Lewis for our 2 year old as the first buggy we had broke and we wanted something small and easy to use. It is fab, we have used it for 9 months now and I have no complaints so far. Well worth it if you need somthing for a 6month plus baby. However we recently found out I am expecting a new baby and this is where the citi mini falls short. You need to buy a number of accesories to make it suitable from birth- they are expensive and very hard to get hold of. I... (read more)

I noticed that all the reviews are positive, which makes me wonder if my review will ever see the light of day. After weeks of research and reading 100's of reviews, I bought the City Mini Double stroller. I had owned the Graco Quatro Tour and didn't like how heavy it was and how hard it was to turn. They City Mini boasts about the "Amazing 360 turns". Unfortunately a week after owning the stroller I was stuck in the city with 2 kids, and a stroller that was impossible to turn since the...

The best thing for me about the City Mini Jogger 3-wheeler is that it is very roomy for my extra tall and extra heavy 2.5 year old toddler. All the other pushchairs we had or tried either did not have the height to fit her in comfortably and they were a bit harder to push, some were starting to pull in at the handles under the strain. The frame is so sturdy that I do not struggle pushing my daughter (she is in 3-4 year clothes and the last time I weighed her she was about 38lb)

Fantastic buggy. Can't recommend it highly enough!
I bought this for my one year old as I was tired to folding and heaving about my original pram/ pushchair set she had from birth. It is very lightweight and easy to manouver. A dream to fold. Can fold it and put it into the boot with toddler on hip. Very light. Light enough to take on holidays but still extrememly sturdy. Wouldn't recommend if you are slightly smaller in height as handle is quite high and non-adjustable.

My daughter in law was finding it difficult to get her 3 in 1 pram in and out of the car on her own. We searched the internet and bought this buggy based on the many positive reviews. Its fantastic and would recommend it to anyone. One review said it doesn't sit upright enough, if you push the strap as far as it will go it will go right up.Most of the prices were the same but we if you shop around like we did you can have the raincovers free.

BABY JOGGER CITY MINI
I think this stroller is amazing. My baby is 4 months old and I had enough of lugging my LOOLA around. I wanted something lightweight, compact when folded, go up kerbs easily, easy steering, one-handed steering to hold onto my toddler's hand and that reclines. It ticks all the boxes. The only downside for me is, because the handle bar is quite rounded it makes my wrists ache as you are not putting your arms square in front of you. Therefore I would have preferred it...

I got the city mini and I am very disappointed in it. Though the stroller has so many options (best sun canopy, light weight, easy fold(, it has the worst chair. My child is extremely uncomfortable in its chair and back that are not padded at all and the chair itself is very loose, so he is always sliding down with the straps holding him..that is very annoying (read more)

The baby jogger city mini is very light, easy to carry with one hand, I love how it folds and it fits in the tiny boot of my car (A-Class). I used this since my baby was a newborn, now that she is 6 months old she can look around when we go for a stroll. I bought this buggy after spending quite some time reading reviews, this was highly recommended, the only problem was to find a stockist in Ireland and eventually found it in Family Fare, we went to test it and we loved it.

BABY JOGGER CITY MINI TWIN PUSHCHAIR
A very manoeverable and lightweight buggy for the size of it, which we bought for the weight carries. Lots of design features, but not always for the best.
The hoods give excellent cover without the rainhood, which is a good fit, but doesn't completely cover the toes. The buggy folds in half, very flat.
However...The crotch padding is forever sliding off. The shoulder straps are pivoted at the top and not threaded flat through, so they continually spin... (read more)

Love it - a simple fold, use from birth, a dream to push... i only wish i'd found it earlier. we bought it for a holiday, but by the end of the 2 weeks we decided to stop using our expensive bugaboo and switched to this one.
Can;t praise it highly enough although not particularly keen on the raincover or the footmuff.
was pleased to discover that its also compatible with maxicosi car seat, which is now important as just had another baby.

I purchased the Baby Jogger City Mini for £90 odd pound. This was my 5th pushchair following on from candy apple and cherry, loola and maclaren etc. It is by far the easiest to fold up and put in the car. The hood also provides loads of shade and is great when little one's asleep. Also really easy to push one handed if you have a toddler with you. Only downside is that does not come with a raincover and child can not sit upright enpough. Other thing I have not got used to which may come with... (read more)

I had a few buggies before this one, I go out walking a lot and the buggy is on and off planes a few times a year. This is the best buggy I have bought and wished I hadn't wasted money on the others. It is easy to push great to fold up and the wheels come off to fit in the boot of my mini cooper. It has a great hood for shelter from both rain and sun. The only downside is the storage. It does not have much room underneath for my little boys bag but other than that I would definately... (read more)

I bought this Baby Jogger City Mini to replace my previous pushchair that broke and was waiting for repair. I really love the way it folds and you can carry it in one hand your child in the other. The hood is great and my little boy needed it it the hot sun in Florida (it fully shaded him). It reclines virtually flat and you can push with one hand if needed. I haven't washed the seat yet but you can and I will be making use of it. (read more)

After our old pushchair broke, I spent weeks reading reviews and trying to find the right pushchair for our (quite large) 2 1/2 year old son. It turned out that pushchairs who would hold a weight over 15 kg are either sinfully expensive or they are built in a way that your toddler's head touches the hood (which kind of defeats the object).
Finally we found the Baby Jogger City Mini. And I can't believe it took me so long to decide. This pushchair is one of the best buys I ever made for my... (read more)

In my opinion the baby jogger city mini is the best 3 wheeler out there at the mo! I challenge you to find a bad review on it!! They are half price at the mo in Argos - (only £64.99) until 24/07/09 - but only available in red. My local store was out of stock - no surprise! but they ordered one for me from another store.

I've just bought the Baby Jogger City Mini pushchair and I'm chuffed to bits with it. The easy fold mechanism makes me happy every day and means our house is just a little less-cluttered with baby stuff. It's light and easy to steer and the hammocky-style seat is very comfy for my newborn on full recline. Not quite as easy to steer as my old Maclaren Techno XT but makes up for it with its more comfy seat (my eldest never liked sitting in the Maclaren) and that nifty fold. Cheeky that the...

This push chair is great!. It looks stylish but has really practical and very well thought out features. It is easy to push and steer with one hand while I hold my son's hand, if he is walking next to me. The quick one handed fold is a brilliant idea and is very popular with us and the grandparents. Everyone is amazed when I show then how simple it is to fold with one hand and just a single pull! When folded it will easily fit between the seats on a bus. With the quick release wheels off...

Baby Jogger City Mini - I also have the Quinny Buzz and Petite Star Zia, both of which are great. I prefer this to the Zia as a lightweight stroller for everyday use as it has much better storage (basket under and big mesh pocket on the back), a much better hood and is easier to recline. The Zia is better for taking on holiday as it does fold more compact.
