My names Wendy, I work at the Dorchester store. I have a 2-year-old son called Benjamin and I chose the Baby Jogger City Mini GT for him.
I really love my buggy because it is so lightweight and easy to push (even one handed) and it easily copes with going off road, on tracks and trails due to its big, air filled tyres. It is a 3 wheeler which is what makes it so versatile for town and country. The front wheel locks for going over bumpy ground, making it more comfortable for baby.
It can be used from birth as it is because it lays completely flat but you can also get the carrycot which is suitable for the first 6 months. One of the best things about this buggy is that all the material for the pushchair can be unpopped and taken off so when you are using the carrycot there is not so much material, making it look small and compact.
This buggy has the easiest folding system possible….all you need to do is pull the strap in the middle of the seat and it folds in half on itself. It is, therefore, one of the most compact buggies when folded and it even fits in the boot of my Yaris! To make it even more compact, all 3 wheels can be removed.
My little boy is quite tall already but he still has plenty of growing room in this buggy so I have not needed to purchase a further stroller, making it good value for money. The hood has 3 sections so it pulls over a long way and keeps almost all of him shaded from the sun.
There are adapters that can be bought so that a variety of car seats can be used on the chassis of the buggy, making it into a travel system. The car seat can also be fitted on to the chassis when it is in pushchair mode so extending the life of the travel system.
It has a large shopping basket and adjustable handle with a rubber grip which is comfortable to hold, even on long walks.
There are lots of accessories that you can get for this buggy, including footmuff, cup holder and child tray. It also comes in a variety of colours and styles to suit you and your child’s identity.
I would recommend this buggy to anybody who wants to have the versatility of a travel system and use it in town and country and not need to buy anything else for the duration of your child needing a buggy. It is also a mid priced range buggy so a good all rounder.
Please come into the store so that we can show you this amazing buggy and all the others we have to offer so we can find the right one for you.
