Mama Monday: UppaBaby Vista Stroller Review


Note: This is not a paid advertisement for Uppababy (don't I wish!), but while I was researching strollers 2 years ago, blogs and personal experience were what interested me most. Obviously, I'm dabbling in baby item research again now that I'm thinking of a least a few things I think would come in handy with two kids, so that prompted this post.

When we were preparing for Jack and picking out his stroller and whatnot, we decided to go with kind of a cadillac of strollers. I didn't register for it because I didn't want anyone to think I was expecting to have big $$$ shelled out on it, but we had high hopes that God would bless us with another baby within a couple of years, so to us, it was a good investment (let's face it - mama spends a lot of time at the mall when she's not shopping the internet.)


I picked the Uppababy Vista for multiple reasons:
  • It comes with a bassinet so it converts to a pram.
  • There is an additional infant carrier converter for purchase.
  • It has a great toddler seat with one-handed recline.
  • It is fairly lightweight for its ginormous size.
  • At the time we purchased it, the basket underneath was the largest on the market {shopping!}
  • With one-click, the handle can extend for my tall husband.
  • It has an additional rumble seat for purchase to convert to a double stroller.
Clearly I haven't had a chance to try it out with the rumble seat, but I'm pretty excited to get to add it just like I had hoped two years ago. I just placed my order on Amazon. Jack will have the rumble while we still have Annabelle snapped into the infant carrier converter.

I've been meaning to blog about the Vista for a while because we've really enjoyed it. I loved it so much that I picked up their G-Luxe umbrella stroller for travelling, and it's great too. Last spring when I bought it, it was one of the only umbrellas on the market that had an almost full recline.

I love this kid so much.

And I've had great experience with their Customer service. When I started walking the neighborhood to exercise during Jack's early weeks, once I hit a certain speed (not running) the front wheels started to shimmy. I contacted Uppababy immediately (because, hello $$$), and they dispatched a new set of front wheels, and a new frame to resolve my problem. All I had to do was box up the original frame and call UPS to pick it up. I've not had an issue since!
