As you may already know over the next few months I will be working with Baby Jogger to bring you honest reviews of some of their products. With the market now full of so many options when it comes to baby equipment, it can feel a little overwhelming when trying to make the right decision so helpfully my reviews will help you to answer some questions you may have.
First up the City Tour Lux
This lightweight pram comes in two different colours, granite or slate. It is designed for parents on the go, with its five ways to ride it has you covered as you and your babies’ needs change. It seamlessly accepts both infant car seats and a foldable carrycot which is suitable from birth. Once you and your baby are ready for the next stage the seat can either be forward facing or parent facing. This feature has been super handy for me and Tiggy as depending on her mood I can switch it around to keep her happy.
We’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and with it being the summer holidays I have really put it through its paces, from dog walks to beach trips, we have taken it everywhere. It is super compact when folded down so doesn’t take over the boot which is obviously essential for us as a family of six. One of my favourite features must be the under-seat basket, although this is not huge as this is a compact buggy, in comparison to other strollers of this size it seemed massive to me, perfect for popping a bag of shopping under or everyone’s coats as they shed them on a dog walk.
Although this pram is compact and easy to fold it hasn’t jeopardised comfort in anyway. The seat reclines to almost completely flat and the bottom part of the seat can fold up or down creating a footrest for your little one, which I always pop up for Tigs naps. With that and the huge extending hood, she has a lovely little nest to snooze away in.
So far both myself and my husband have found this pram nice to drive or push however you like to think about using a pram, its super smooth and easy to steer and the brakes flick on and off really easily. There is also a handy strap so once the buggy is folded down you can carry it easily, super useful if you travel regularly or use trains and buses.
There are lots of extra accessories such as a buggy board for toddlers, cup holders, footmuffs and much more that can all be purchased separately. The retail price of this pram is £379.00, and the carrycot is £149.00, which for the quality and the fact it could get you right the way through all of those pram years I think makes it really is great value for money.
