Comments about The First Years Ignite Stroller:

We bought ours in 2014 for a Disney trip. We wanted something that would travel easy by air and could also hold up over dats of travel. We have been using this stroller for two years, two kids later and the wheel traction is still really good. I realky like the harness and how many levels it has for shoulder straps. We have children that are abive average height and this has really come in handy. My husband is 6'5 and a lot of strollers make him have to lean over. He had a lot better limuck with this one. I really love this stroller but there are two things I wish were different. I do wish that the sunshade could adjust somehow, it provides ok coverage but being adjustable would offer better protection. It can also be sonewhat difficult getting things you've had stowed in the basket with how the framing is. If your child is awake you just have to lean them forward some to get to items. If they are sleeping, you will most likely run into some problems with trying to work around that. The stroller folds uo easily, this very helpful for bus riding.

Great Lightweight Stroller

By 

from USA

Comments about The First Years Ignite Stroller:

I purchased this stroller for use with my grandchildren, thus it is not heavily used. So far it has met all my expectations and is easy to use.

Design
It took a bit to get used to fastening and unfastening the latch that holds the stroller in the closed position, however it is not difficult to master. It opens and closes easily, and the wheels pivot nicely. The handles are designed in such a way that my feet/legs do not hit the stroller while pushing it. This was a problem when I tested other strollers. I am 5'6", and the height seems just right for me. The sunshade is large; however, it would be nicer if it was adjustable for when the sun is apt to be in their face, such as during an evening stroll.

Child Comfort
The metal bars behind the seat back add a lot of support for the child, and the padding in the seat keeps the child from feeling those bars. This is much nicer than many umbrella strollers that have no support for the back. The seat can be reclined somewhat. Many feel that it is not enough, but I think it is plenty for a toddler to fall asleep for it is more of a recline than the car seat they would be in.

Love it!

Comments about The First Years Ignite Stroller:

We received this stroller for my son's first birthday from my grandmother. She asked me to pick one and she would purchase it for us. I researched like crazy trying to find something that was not bulky, reclined, had a canopy, a decent sized basket underneath, and was taller than the average umbrella stroller so we did not feel like we were slouched or hunched over while pushing it. This stroller fit all of those requests! It has lasted us through 3 children as well (well, technically 2. Our baby girl is still too small to ride in it just yet). I do wish that it reclined a little bit more, but it does not seem to bother the children. They seem to nap in it very well. It collapses very flat, so space is not an issue. We have traveled with it on cruises, road trips, the zoo, you name it. It is perfect for travel because of its size. Overall, I think this was a great choice for our family. I'm seriously considering getting another one, but wonder if it will be necessary.

The first years stroller

By 

from USA

Comments about The First Years Ignite Stroller:

I love this stroller!

Design
This stroller is so cute! I also have the car seat that goes with it. The car seat snaps in perfectly! This stroller is very lightweight compared to others I've used. I love that! It's easy to get in and out of the trunk of my car, and very light to push. I have only used it with the car seat because my baby is still very young, so I can only imagine how much lighter it will be without the car seat.

Safety
So far, we haven't had any issues with the stroller in regards to safety. It's very sturdy, and it doesn't seem like it would tip over easily.

Child Comfort
It seems to be very comfortable for a child. The seat can lay back or sit up. It has a tray on the front with a cup holder.

Maneuverability
This stroller moves around so easily. It's very light, so it's easy to push. But the wheels also maneuver very easily.

Durability
This stroller seems very sturdy. I've only been using it for a couple months, but it seems like it's going to last us a long time!

Great for the money!

Comments about The First Years Ignite Stroller:

I bought this stroller for my daughter and it works great. The harness isn't complicated and she likes to ride in it. It's easy to use; It opens quickly and also folds quickly. The basket under the seat is a bit small and not really ideal for carrying a lot of bags, but it holds a few personal items like a diaper bag and small purse. It is easy to maneuver and the wheel locks keep it in place when they are needed. It is also very cute. It isn't ideal for infants that can't sit on their own, but once they reach that milestone, it's perfect. Overall, I would definitely recommend this stroller.

Design
The basket under the seat is small.

Safety
Holds securely without being uncomfortable, bulky, or difficult to figure out.

Child Comfort
My daughter always loves to ride in her stroller.

Maneuverability
It doesn't veer off, corners very well.

Durability
This stroller has withstood the test from my toddler. It is well made. The frame is light but very durable. The fabric cleans easily and resists tears and stress well. The basket, although small, is made with very durable fabric also.

This is a good stroller for grandparents.

Comments about The First Years Ignite Stroller:

We bought this stroller to use after the birth of our 1st grandchild. It is easy to open and close, has a handy pouch to put things in plus a cup holder, and is light and easy to pick up. It folds up easily. The storage underneath isn't really big, but I don't carry a whole diaper bag when out with my granddaughter, just the essentials, so it is big enough.

Great compact stroller with big features!

By 

from USA

Comments about The First Years Ignite Stroller:

I just love this stroller! I wanted an umbrella stroller that had a few more features than a basic model. I really like the parent console, the size of the basket underneath, the handles are a nice size and easy to grip. I like that there is a 5 point harness, the seat can recline, there is a sun canopy. And it folds just as flat as any other umbrella stroller!

Happy Customer: Looked at the 'Jet', went with 'Ignite'.

By 

from USA

Comments about The First Years Ignite Stroller:

We initially utilized a hand-me-down basic frame stroller that allowed us to clip the baby's car seat into the frame. What we sacrificed in bulkiness, we saved in basic convenience at the initial stage of our daughter's life. As soon as she was able to hold her head up more successfully, we looked for a nice and lightweight umbrella stroller that offered basic storage without being too bulky for our active lifestyle. The zippered pouch up top is hardy and handles a water bottle for the parent, as well as a secure place for keys, wallet, or otherwise. While there is no cup holder for the child, one can easily obtain a clamp on model to attach to the side bar if that is deemed necessary. Whereas before, when we had the frame clip in stroller, we had to seriously consider whether or not the trip was going to require it, and if we could make room for it. Now with the Ignite umbrella stroller, we keep it with us at all times and setup and breaktown takes little to no effort. We tried the 'Jet', but ultimately went for its similar bigger brother, the 'Ignite', as it felt more comfortable during an active stroll. We also aren't looking to continually upgrade throughout her toddler years, so we wanted something that we felt comfortable working with for the entire growth period.

Design
Very sleek design, ergonomic, easy to breakdown and unfurl one handed.

Safety
When clipped into storage mode, it would be nice if the exposed bars could be covered in some manner so as not to get any fingers of either the parent, or child stuck between.

A heavy duty umbrella stroller

By 

from Monticello, MN

Comments about The First Years Ignite Stroller:

I purchased this when my son was one because I didn't like the regular umbrella strollers and my Jeep stroller didn't fit well in my car. We took it out to the state fair and it worked really well. We've used it many times since then and it has worked very well every time. The wheels are much nicer than regular umbrella wheels. I've taken it on dirt paths and it continues to move surprisingly smooth. It does have a basket unlike most umbrella strollers, but it is not very big and there are metal bars in front of it that make the stroller more secure but more difficult to fit stuff in the basket. It folds up nice and compact and fits well in my trunk even when there are many other things already in it. It's not too much larger than a typical umbrella stroller and folds the same way. The shade does very little unless the sun is mostly behind you and then it doesn't matter anyways. Overall, a great stroller.

Child Comfort
My children like to sit up higher than this goes.

Extremely compact, well built, offering all that of a large one!

By

Comments about The First Years Ignite Stroller:

I already own a large jogging stroller, but was looking for something small I could use in the mall and at the airport easier than hauling around the big guy. I was amazed how much this stroller had to offer for the small price tag in comparison to the jogging stroller. It fits my five month old great and will work great for when he is older as well. The handlebar console has a nice zippered pocket for my phone and it hold my coffee in the cupholder well also! The basket on the bottom is small, but fits toys well. And I cannot stress enough how compact this thing gets, it gets just as small as those cheapy umbrella strollers and it has a basket and handlebar console!
