Combi USA provided us with a Fold N Go stroller for this review. All the opinions are mine and the boys’.
Strollers are like purses and shoes, at least to me. I need to have one for each occasion: an umbrella for quick trips, a jogging stroller for… well, to go for long walks, and then the big comfy stroller for the amusement parks and the all-day events where napping invariably will take place. Our brigade of strollers doubled once we birthed the second child, because clearly I now needed all the same variations but with two seats. There are as many stroller combinations in our house as there are sneakers, crocks and flip flops. Recently the stroller-gods shined down upon us and granted us a brand new Combi Fold N Go Double Stroller. I am truly in stroller-heaven, and you will want to know why!
Yes, our kids are getting older. They are now 8, 6, 3 and 1. In theory we would only have two stroller-age kids. However, our 6 year old has some medical complications that some times make him stroller-bound, especially if we venture out late in the day, or for all-day excursions. Finding a double stroller that can comfortably hold a 47 lbs tall boy is truly a challenge, especially when maneuverability and a sleek design still is a priority. To all my fellow moms with “older kids” still in strollers, I am thrilled to say: “Look no further. The stroller for YOUR family is right here!”
We received the Combi USA Fold N Go stroller in a big box. It was big enough to hold a few toddlers – comfortably, not that I condone sticking toddlers in boxes, but just as a size reference. I circled the box for a few days, hesitant to open it because I didn’t have a lot of time and I knew I would want to put it together right away. Well – finally I opened the box on day 3 – and literally 5 minutes later the two babies were strapped in and we were out of the door in our new red chariot. Apparently, Combi USA was serious when they named this stroller, it truly lives up to its name: “Fold N Go!”
Inside the box were the wheels, the canopies, three cup holders, a snack holder and the stroller itself – that is IT! Our three year old son put most of it together himself – and since he’s a male he refused to read the directions – and he STILL managed to do everything correctly! That is how easy it was!
My favorite features on the stroller (in no particular order):
- Weight capacity of 50 lbs PER seat.
- BIG canopies that actually shade the kids (a must here in South Florida).
- Mesh vents on the back and the sides of the canopy (perfect to sneak a peek and to keep things cool).
- Comfy seats, even our 6 year old can sit up AND lean back comfortably.
- The seats fully recline, making nap time unavoidable after a long walk.
- Easy to buckle and adjust five-point harness, and they are padded for comfort.
- Front wheels swivel and are plastic, so never a flat tire.
- Suspension on the front wheels allow for a smooth ride, even when climbing curbs.
- One-handed folding and unfolding.
- Easy steering, even with 47 lbs and 38 lbs boys onboard.
- Lots of storage solutions: large under-carriage basket, parent cup holder and canopy pockets.
- Removable cup and snack holders (which is a must for germ freaks like me).
Love at first ride!
We have only used the stroller locally for long walks, but I am positive it will be perfect for all-day trips to LEGOLAND and Disney World, which is really when we need the extra weight capacity.
I am so excited to share this stroller experience and review with my fellow medical-moms. I think it will be a great solution for others who need stroller options for bigger children. It’s sporty look also makes it attractive to older children, so they don’t feel like they are being transported in a “baby stroller.” I love when design and function come together to create something that is as pleasing to the eye as it is easy to use.
What is the one feature that you MUST have on a stroller?
