There are a lot of stroller companies out there, but I had quite a few prerequisites that had to fit the bill before I was willing to commit! My ideal stroller needed to be easy to fold and unfold because nothing is worse than being in a hurry and having a complex system on your hands that takes time to set up and break down! It also needed to be a stacked stroller as opposed to a double wide. It needed to be able to convert to a single in several different capacities with a car seat, bassinet, and toddler seat so I could adjust it accordingly if I only had one kiddo in tow, and finally it needed to have the option of a kickstand so Ava could ride along if she got tired!
Out of all the strollers out there, the UPPAbaby VISTA system met every single requirement I had! Not to mention it is absolutely beautiful and functional as well! Now all those features are great, but they don't mean anything if the quality is not there. That's why I headed off to my nearest Nordstrom to see the system in person and take it for a spin! Let me just tell you guys, it is more beautiful in person and even higher quality than I anticipated!
Since having our UPPAbaby VISTA, we have taken it countless places that have provided a stress free outing experience. We have gone to the mall, the zoo, and even a pumpkin patch with the VISTA! The robust wheels and shocks made it easy as pie to push through dirt and over rocks and grooves, something that most strollers would get stuck just trying to do! Aside from the compliments we get every time, we just love having such a functional travel system and can't wait to take it to even more locations to see how it does!
A few of my favorite features on this system are the adjustable handlebar that you can adjust to your comfortable height! The one button change is perfect for when my husband and I switch between pushing it on the same outing! He absolutely loves that he doesn't have to crouch over to push our kids! I also absolutely adore the extra large storage basket on the bottom! In the past I have had such limited space when out with my strollers and it felt like I had no where to put anything! Unlike the past where I had to hold all my shopping bags while out running errands, several bags AND my diaper bag fit flawlessly under the seat with room to spare! I also am obsessed with the bassinet! Just the other day we took our kids for a walk and it was a bit chilly! Instead of fastening the baby into his car seat, we played him in the bassinet, bundled him up in blankets, and zipped it up! He was comfy the entire walk and never made a peep! Not to mention the bassinet has been approved as overnight sleep option with a ventilated mattress inside of it! How may strollers can say that? Finally I love that the toddler seat reclines and allows for when William gets tuckered out while out on the run! Whenever he falls asleep we just recline his seat back and he is sleeping so comfy for the rest of his ride. You just can't beat that.
travel system though is how easy it is to snap together! Unloading it and setting it up from the car is as simple as pulling a latch on the side and it unfolds and opens right up! From there you can take the UPPAbaby MESA carseat and drop it right on to the adapter clips, and with a few snaps it is ready to go. If I need to push both babes at the same time, I simply clip on the extra adapters and in seconds it's 2 child capable. Ready to pack up and head home? I simply press the button on the top of my MESA carseat handle and it pulls right off! No confusing or complicated latches! To say I am impressed with UPPAbaby is a huge understatement, and I want you all to love it just as much as I do! Please keep an eye out for my Snapchat (@morganallenfam) and Instagram (@morgallen) stories/feeds because I am going to be sharing a step by step of each of the different functions and configurations and answering any questions you might have about the system! You don't want to miss it!
