Our review stroller came just in time for us! 
I used this stroller in two places, the mall & our fair


A couple days after the stroller arrived, a friend went with the girls and I to the mall to pick up Macyn's 5 month picture and then get her ears pierced.

I was excited because my husband and I were glowing over it after it was put together so I couldn't wait to get it out in public and really give it all I've got!

I quickly learned that this stroller is BIG! I really like how big the back wheels are, but they get in the way. I kept bumping in to things in some of the little stores and even started to get embarrassed. It's also pretty wide, but I think after pushing it around for an hour, all that quickly disappears and you're used to the new size and shape that comes with it. 



I LOVE LOVE LOVE how easy this stroller is to push! 
It's 28 lbs + a 13 lb baby, plus the carseat wasn't too much for Madison!  Besides being short, she was easily able to push it around and keep it in a straight line. When you're pushing it, you'd never think it weighs so much because it glides so incredibly well. 

My friend is expecting her first child in late October and also really liked it and fell in love with the bright red color of the seat. She had the same things to say as me, and loved how easily it flowed. 


Here's McKenzie in the stroller while at the fair. She's currently right at 30lbs and fits great!
She's leaning forward in the picture because when we first put her in, it was moving back and forth a little and she was scared. We fixed this by reclining it a little, which stopped the moving. This stroller was a great option for us during the fair because McKenzie walks so very slow for a 3yr old and she could quickly hop in and out for rides and games. The day we went, the high was 94 degrees, so it was nice having the cup holder for her, and then the canopy provided great shade while being pushed around. 

This was yet another success for us because the stroller glided so well and you didn't feel like you were pushing a 3 yr old around. It moved well in the gravel and pavement, and we never had any issues with getting stuck because of the big tires! 


This picture above is on our way out of the fair. As you can see, McKenzie is in the stroller, and if you look closely you can tell that most of her body is shaded. The basket underneath was a great spot for the couple little prizes they won, as well as the XL bag of cotton candy. If you also look at my husband, he's pushing with one hand! 

THAT SHOWS HOW EASY THIS STROLLER IS!

I can't say enough great things about this stroller! It's so easy to turn around the seat because of two quick release buttons, and its fast to fold the main piece in half because of the two quick release buttons on it as well. It has a full bar for the break (you can see above) and this is also nice because I'm not a fan of the little pieces you have to push in and out on other strollers. 

If I could change one thing about the stroller it would be the price. 
The cheapest I saw it priced at was $125 at Wal-mart with the most expensive being $190 at JcPenney. I would pay the $125 to Wal-Mart in a heart beat for this stroller, but wouldn't go higher than that. Just a personal preference on price and I feel that googling for the best price is best. 

It's available in two colors, red and blush (pink)


Stop by on July 30 for the "Just for Baby" Giveaway Hop where I'll be giving away a Contours® Options® 3-Wheeler Stroller to one lucky Contiguous US winner!

I definitely prefer strollers with 3 wheels for the way they maneuver!

Ashley S said...

Oh wow this stroller looks awesome! I'm not familiar with this brand, so I'll have to keep them in mind for my next little one. I've always liked the 3-wheelers better.

drew said...

Awesome stroller with great features! Will be purchasing one :))

Audrey said...

I love that you can turn the seat both ways. That's a nice feature that you don't find in most strollers, especially at this price point. Thanks for sharing the review!

Anastasia said...

LOVE the facing parent option!

Corinna said...

I knew nothing about strollers when our baby girl was born but I've definitely come to appreciate the 3-wheeled feature that we don't have.

It's something I want to get if and when we have another baby.

Brandywine said...

I loved reading your review. I think what I would like the most about this stroller is that you can turn it forward facing or rear facing. We have a three wheel stroller now, but we don't have that awesome feature with it.

lakeonthornton said...

I absolutely love the 3 wheels, I also love the overall look of this stroller. Great review!

Eileen said...

My favorite feature you discussed in the review is the larger tires and not getting caught up on gravel and being slowed down. I remember using the older version of strollers that made you go all cattywampus when you tried to go in snow or gravel, sand, etc. The wheels make great sense!

thankyou!

Emily Vetter said...

Like everyone says, the best feature is definitely being able to face the baby away or toward you. I love that!

Ranie Day People said...

I love love love the look of this. It is streamlined and chic. I love the fact you don't have to buy a super expensive and specific carseat to put in it. It'd be a big help!

yuukiimi said...

I really like the look of this stroller and it's not bulky at all which is a plus. What sold me though is the front/rear- facing options!!!

Trista said...

I love the overall look of this stroller, I also like the fact that the seat can recline fully, so many strollers only recline about 45 degrees which stinks for little babies or when your toddler wants to nap.
