We received this stroller as a baby shower gift over two years ago and love it. It is a great stroller for an affordable price. It has the simplicity of an umbrella stroller with extra features, like a basket and optional tray and cup holders, that make it easy to travel with. My mom liked the stroller so much that she bought the exact same stroller to keep at her house when she watched my daughter!

Design
The strolled is a great design. It has the portability of an umbrella stroller, with some of the features of a more expensive stroller. I like that is came with a drink holder, removable tray, padded straps, and basket underneath the stroller. The basket is a generous size. I also love the color of the stroller.

It is lightweight and easy to use for traveling. We have used it with our now 2 year old on many trips, including Disney World and Hawaii. It folds very well, and is easy to fold one handed when trying to get on Disney buses.

Safety
It appears to be a safe stroller, and we have had no issues with the safety of the stroller. There are brakes for the rear wheels. The sunshade can be moved so that you can see your child. I have not noticed any parts that would be a choking or safety concern.

Child Comfort
We use the stroller a light amount, especially now that my daughter is over two and likes to walk. It is great for traveling, and my daughter appears to be comfortable in it. The straps are padded. There is a tray with cup holder that is great for snacks. There is also a sunshade. It would be great if there was a bit more padding, but my daughter has not complained about it.

Maneuverability
The Kolcraft stroller is very easy to maneuver. I have never had issues pushing the stroller. All of the wheels turn well. It is also a nice size and not too large.

Durability
The stroller appears very durable. We received it as a baby shower gift, and have had it for over two years now. We have used it for travel, and have it checked on many flights. Besides a few minor scratches, the stroller is in great shape.

When my children were small I had a stroller that could change the direction the baby was facing, by simply moving the handle.  This was what i was looking for when i found this stroller.  I have to say this is the  most complicated, heaviest, time consuming, bulkiest stroller I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!  It looks beautiful but it is a nightmare when you are alone with a child and trying to get it out of the car or put it back in the car.  I would never recommend this nightmare to any new or old mother.

Great stroller

Comments about Kolcraft Contours Lite Stroller:

I have this stroller in orange. It has worked out very nicely for my son.

Design
This isn't the most stylish stroller, but everything about it is very nice. The adult cup holder is a very convenient addition. A lot of strollers have that as an accessory that you must pay extra for.

Safety
This stroller has shoulder straps along with the waist strap. You can't see your child while you're pushing him, so the shoulder straps make me feel a lot safer about using this.

Child Comfort
The straps have a cushion so they don't irritate the baby, and the seat reclines back to accommodate an infant or a toddler. It can be reclined all the way back for an infant, or a toddler can sit up. If a toddler is sleepy and wants a nap, it's very easy to recline it for him as well.

Maneuverability
This stroller is average size. That is good on a regular basis, but when you're in a tight space, one of the cheap umbrella strollers is better.

Durability
My son is only 9 months, so I can't speak for long term durability, but everything except the wheels still look brand new.

durable, comfortable, versatile, and great price

Comments about Kolcraft Contours Lite Stroller:

Great for long travel love that it can be for a child from birth to toddler but is not at all lite. The features are similar to many expensive strollers. If you are looking for the features of a high priced stroller in a more sensible priced product this is a great option. I actually owned one four 5 years and gave it away because my child no longer used it. I also purchase a double stroller as a gift and they too loved it. However this stroller is not at all lite.

Design
It has a great seat feature for front facing and rear facing and I was able to attach the car seat attachment for easy use. however, I wish the seat material came off and could be thrown in the wash.

Child Comfort
Very comfortable my child loved being in this stroller.Great when you will need them to sleep comfortably in it during a day out. I used it for those long shopping trips at the mall.

Durability
Owned this stroller from birth until my little one was almost 5. I only gave it way because my child no longer used it and it was collecting dust.

Best stroller I have ever owned !

Comments about Kolcraft Contours Lite Stroller:

I have 3 children and I have owned at lease 10 different strollers. Every stroller I bought I HATED expect for this Kolcraft Contours Lite Stroller. It is so light weight it was easy to use without have to buying one of those awful umbrella strollers. The handle was perfect height and the stroller handled well. It was easy to fold up and store in a small car, and it also has a decent sized under basket and cupholders!! It lays down easily so my youngest could take a nap if she got tired while shopping. I would recommend the stroller to anyone. We also had the double contour stroller and that one was also the best double stroller we owned. Don't go waste your money on the most expensive stroller you can find ... just go get a Kolcraft Contours !

Design
Sleek design, very practical

Safety
Contour stroller was very easy to buckle my little one. She stayed safely in her seat.

Child Comfort
Very comfortable, she took may naps in our stroller

Maneuverability
Easy to turn, wheels never stuck

Easy to push, pull and turn with one hand.

By 

from Louisville, KY

Comments about Kolcraft Contours Lite Stroller:

Overall, this is an excellent product that's supremely easy to open and easy to close. It maneuvers better than any other stroller I've tried and it's so light. The only drawback is the back of the seat feels a little cheap.

Design
The inside of the back of the seat feels a little less than ideal compared to the rest of the stroller. It's a thickness and sturdiness issue there; needs to feel more sturdy.

Maneuverability
Seriously amazing in this category. It turns on a dime. This is the biggest feature that makes it worthwhile to me. It moves amazingly well on any surface and you can even push it--and turn it--with one hand.

Durability
The wheels seem really durable and the majority of the stroller also feels really sturdy, it's just the back that's the drawback in this category.

beautiful stroller but so big and complicated

By 

from Harlan, KY

Comments about Kolcraft Contours Lite Stroller:

When my children were small I had a stroller that could change the direction the baby was facing, by simply moving the handle.  This was what i was looking for when i found this stroller.  I have to say this is the  most complicated, heaviest, time consuming, bulkiest stroller I have ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!  It looks beautiful but it is a nightmare when you are alone with a child and trying to get it out of the car or put it back in the car.  I would never recommend this nightmare to any new or old mother.

Kolcrast 4 wheeler is fantastic

By 

from Shirley, MA

Comments about Kolcraft Contours Lite Stroller:

I searched for a long time to try and find the perfect stroller that I could actually afford.  This was the winner and I'm completely satisfied.  Although this stroller is heavy, the point isn't to carry it along.  I'm petit and can put it in and out of my trunk without a problem.  My son loves to get in and out on his own.

I'm still not sure why some people think it's difficult to open or close.  Look at the directions once and you're all set.

An odd bonus, my son is Deaf and this is one of the few strollers that allow older kids to sit facing the parent.

Some potential issues with this stroller

By 

from Azusa, CA

Comments about Kolcraft Contours Lite Stroller:

After less than 2 months of having this stroller, my 7 month old baby started kicking the front bar/tray open. One time he pulled it toward his face and nearly poke his eye out with the bar prong (got a small bruise on the corner of the eye). Contacted Kolcraft, wanted to return the stroller, they agreed to only send me a replacement for the tray. I honestly did not want to have it anymore after the eye incident. We'll see if the issue gets corrected with the replacement. Update: the replacement tray did not correct the problem.  the problem is at the main stroller frame where the tray prong attaches.  Sent the entire stroller to kolcraft.  Other issues: Super heavy, need two hands to get it in and out of the car Need two hands to open, close straps, To close it need to remove entire seat to place it foward facing before closing Parent cup needs also to be removed to close UPDATE

To be fair to the company, Kolcraft replaced my defective stroller, and 'till now maybe because my baby's legs are longer now, and it is harder for my baby to stick his feet under and kick the the front tray, the tray has not been a safety issue.  After a lot of hesitation decided to keep the new stroller   If you are not planning to fold this stroller on a regular basis or have a strong husband to open and close then this stroller is ok.  on the posive side it rides smoothly and it is sturdy.

Contours is a great stroller to use for travel and everyday

By 

from Medford, NY

Comments about Kolcraft Contours Lite Stroller:

We bought this stroller for our recent trip to Disney World. We were torn between renting a stroller or purchasing one. So I did some internet research and found this stroller. And I am 100% happy with my decision to purchase it. As it was actually cheaper than renting one and since my parents have a house in Kissimmee, we left the stroller there for future visits. The stroller has everything we needed. It has a huge basket that stored everything from our water bottles, diapers, wipes, ponchos, extra clothes to souvenirs we purchased. And it has 2 cup holders! 1 for you and 1 for your child! Our daughter is 3 years old and she fit perfectly in it. We loved the fact that it reclines for nap time and she loved the snack tray. I honestly would recommend this stroller. It's definately a quality stroller at an amazingly affordable price. It moves beautifully and has wonderful amenities. Whether you plan to use it for travel or for everyday use, you will definately get your money's worth and then some!
