Baby Jogger City Mini GT First Impressions

Although bulkier than it appears, most parents have been impressed by how easy it is to fold away, as it springs into motion by lifting a strap with just one hand, and transforms into a compact bundle.

The auto-locks makes it secure until you’re ready to use it again. However, some customers found that the design could be improved with an additional front wheel as it doesn’t feel quite as secure as four-wheeled varieties.

What people like about about the Baby Jogger City Mini GT

The main feature that people love is the all-terrain wheels, and how this is combined with the front wheel suspension to offer full control of the buggy.

With many city pavements being uneven, parents are reassured about the comfort of their child. With a maximum weight of 29.5kg, parents like the fact that it can accommodate babies as well as toddlers, making it a great investment.

Parents loved the peepholes in the hood, offering protection from the sun and rain, while still allowing you to look in on your baby.

What to watch out for

Aside from the possible issue with only having one front wheel, most parents found this to be a sturdy buggy.

Although a highly-rated product, many parents had little complaints and welcomed the idea of making it even more adaptable by having a parent-facing option, which parents like to have. Some parents felt that the storage was not big enough, and they were unable to use the handles to hang nappy bags.

Hints and Tips

Be aware that you may need to purchase additional extras, something parents have said are not optional, but necessary. These include a rain cover, foot buff, and bumper bar.

This can really hike up the price of an already expensive product, so make sure you’re aware of everything that you need to avoid disappointment. Remember that it should come with a lifetime warranty for the frame, and a year’s warranty for the material, making it a worthwhile investment, which you can always sell on when it is no longer needed.

When you use the storage space on this buggy, remember that the maximum weight includes both your baby and anything else you load onto it, so it shouldn’t be overloaded, or it could shorten the life of this aspect.

Final verdict

Most parents have been really pleased with the Baby Jogger City Mini GT, based on what it has been designed for, providing a smooth and comfortable ride for both parents and babies.

The buggy is both light-weight and robust, so is perfect for those who go between the city and countryside. Although it doesn’t have a parent-facing option, you can look in at your baby through the peepholes and see them enjoying the comfort of this pushchair.
