Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini Double Review
Do you have twins? Do you have two small children you need to bring with you while you jog? If you do, you should take a good look at the Baby Jogger 2016 City Mini Double. It’s one of the best double strollers on the market, and it has the features that will make you enjoy using it just about anywhere. Here are some of the best features of the City Mini Double:
One of the biggest problems with side-by-side double strollers is that they are usually made too wide. As a result, they won’t fit through standard interior doors, which are around 31” wide.
Baby Jogger got it right when they made this stroller, because the overall width is 30”, so it will fit through all standard doors! Feel free to stroll in confidence knowing that you’re going to make it through those doorways that used to make you hesitate.
Car Seat Capable
You can transform your City Mini Double into a component of your travel system with the correct adapters. This allows you to transfer your child’s car seat directly from the car to the stroller without moving your baby.
This feature saves a bunch of time and effort, and it doesn’t disturb your child. Adapters are available for all of the most common car seats, and are sold separately.
Front Wheel Suspension
When you’re on the go, especially at jogging speeds, bumps get magnified and transfer to your children. To help with this, the City Mini Double has suspension on both pairs of front wheels to smooth out the ride.
Your kids will love how smooth the ride is with this stroller, and you’ll appreciate that they don’t wake up every time you hit a large bump. Smooth ride and happy kids always go together.
To protect your children from the sun’s harmful rays, the City Mini Double has a great sun shade. It’s got a UV rating of 50+, and it adjusts for around 120 degrees of coverage so your children aren’t going to get burned.
On the back of the shade are double peek-a-boo windows so you can keep a watchful eye on your kids while you’re out and about. With this stroller, your kids should never find out about sunburns.
A great thing about the City Mini Double is the option to add some pretty cool features if you wish. You can get Baby Jogger’s Universal Parent Console to hang on the handle, which will store everything you need, like snacks, toys, your phone, and any beverages that you prefer.
You can also purchase dual child trays to hold your kids’ snacks and beverages and doesn’t affect the ability of the stroller to fold. Another cool option you can buy is the attachable cooler bag so you can bring along lunch for a picnic on the go!
A weather shield and carrying bag are also available, so rest assured that if you want any add-ons for this stroller, they’re definitely available.
