After two kids and several strollers, this one has been my favorite! With my first kid I purchased a big "luxury" kind of stroller and used it maybe three times because it was too big, bulky and awkward. I've also used the cheap little umbrella stroller that are great for short little trips but don't provide a lot of comfort. This one is right in between. Just comfortable enough to allow naps and simple enough to throw in the car and assemble quickly with ease. The top was totally collapsible and wasn't a bother when not being used but provided needed shade for outside games when need. Cup holder and storage up top allowed for cups and my keys/phone/purse and bottom basket fit my larger diaper bag without an issue. We are a sports family and travel all over the state for travel softball and I could easily push this with one arm while carrying ball equipment/whatever with the other. The twist to open/close padding on the handle did wear off but, to be fair, we are a ROUGH family and used it constantly. We used from the age of learning to sit up to fast running toddler and the foam handle cover is my ONLY complaint. Would totally buy this again if we decide that we are crazy enough to expand our family further!
