The child’s tray can be easily removed on either side. It offers two cup holders and can be safely washed in the dishwasher. It is conveniently designed to provide your baby with a surface to lean on or eat from while staying simple for the parents to maintain.

  • Wheels

The front wheels have a suspension system, they swivel and lock with a simple tap of the toe. They have stability and maneuverability. The best thing is that they can quickly rotate in any direction even with all the extra weight.

  • Adjustable handlebar

The handlebar can be adjusted according to the height of the parent. It offers three distinct heights for either mom or dad and is padded for extra comfort.

Infant baby carriages are most practical when they offer a sufficient amount of storage. This stroller is particularly convenient when it comes to providing parents with extra space.

  • Canopy

The canopy is made of a material which is easy to remove and machine wash. It is designed to be durable. To properly maintain it, make sure you wash it in low temperatures for delicate fabric.

  • 5-point safety harness

This harness is padded to keep your little one both safe and comfortable. It entails 5 straps, as the name suggests, which go around your child’s shoulders, hips, and crotch area. Parents tend to prefer the 5-point safety harness over the three strap one because it allows their child to be active and move around while staying safely seated.


What’s wrong with the product?

– Heavy in weight

The product is not considered to be a day-to-day lightweight buggy. Though it features helpful perks in the design, it is a weighty baby carriage. It would take time and effort to push it around for an extended time, not to mention unloading bags and baby essentials from it.

– The tray is tricky to remove

The children’s tray is hard to take off in the beginning. This can be quite a nuisance if you are in a hurry. On the bright side, it will become looser in time and will be easy to remove from the stroller.

– Steering will become hard

Steering can become difficult over time as the weight of your child increases. This can happen because of the design of the wheels. Though they are designed to be durable and sturdy, they will become more demanding to manage with the added weight.

Additional features

  • Peek-a-boo window

This feature is a parent favorite since it allows them to see their child easily and without disturbing them. The canopy incorporates this peek window to help parents monitor their baby effortlessly.

  • Tray for parents

What is more, the fully-reclined position has pop-up leg support which is perfect for a nap.

The baby carriage has extra space for storing baby essentials, diaper bags, or your groceries. It is designed to handle extra weight while keeping your ride smooth and your baby comfy.
