    A few Issues, Overall a great stroller., July 18, 2012

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Britax B-Ready Stroller, Red (Baby Product)

    First I’ll outline the negatives about the stroller (and this is of course my opinion):

    1. It’s bulky/heavy. If you plan to be pushing it up hills, you’ll get quite a workout. I didn’t mind it too much as I’m using it as a double stroller, and most doubles are going to be heavy with both kids in their seats.
    2. It was a little more difficult to fold/unfold than I had hoped. It gets easier with practice, but they definitely make it look a little too easy in the demonstration video.
    3. When folded up with the second seat attached, when you fold it up, the second seat’s canopy drags on the ground, so you have to make sure to watch that so it doesn’t get dirty.
    4. I wish the canopy was adjustable, but this is a minor complaint.
    5. With the car seat attached underneath, if you’re a taller parent you are probably going to kick it. I’m 5’5″ and had absolutely no issues kicking it with any of the configurations, but I’d imagine if you were 5’8″ or taller you could have some issues. Also, the handle does not telescope outward at all. This would obviously help accommodate taller parents, but I think adding too much length to the handle could cause some instability. Maybe they’ll find a way to make it work in the future.
    6. The cup holder is crap. Barely holds any weight without dipping or looking like it’s going to fall off.
    7. It’s pretty wide, but of course it’s much more narrow than side by side doubles. If you’re looking for a single stroller and never want more kids, this one’s probably not the way to go. But if you have two kids, the width is necessary for stability.
    8. If you buy the silver B-Ready and silver Chaperone car seat, the two silvers do not exactly match. However I didn’t notice this until another reviewer pointed it out. If it really bothers you, order another color.

    Now for the positives:
    1. Fourteen different configurations. There really is something for everyone here. If you have a newborn and a two-year-old (like me), if you have two two-year-olds, two newborns, a five-year-old and a one-year-old, etc. It all works, and it works very well. I was a little disappointed that with this double decker style, the two children can’t face each other, I’ve seen strollers that use a facing configuration, and it just doesn’t work.
    2. If one of your children is old enough, he/she can climb into the bottom seat without the stroller falling over (as long as the break is locked). It’s very steady.
    3. The buckle on this model is much, much easier to undo. For me, this is a plus, since with the last version I had the hardest time getting the buckle undone. This is not good if your child is screaming to get out.
    4. The new wheels are fantastic. I have most of the durability of a jogging stroller, without ever having flat tires. The B-Ready is not a jogger, so if you’re looking for one I would recommend another stroller. However, if you often go for walks and will be encountering different types of terrain, the B-Ready works very well.
    5. The normal seat that comes with the stroller can accommodate a rather large child. The height and weight limits are pretty high, and your average five-year-old can still ride comfortably.
    6. The brake works wonderfully. I do wish it was on the handle instead of at your feet, but I love that you don’t need closed toed shoes to undo it like most other strollers. I’ve ruined a couple pairs of shoes undoing stroller brakes.
    7. The peek-a-boo window has a magnetic closure, a huge plus if your baby’s a light sleeper.
    8. The underneath storage basket is huge. Even if you have an older child riding underneath and their feet are extended into the basket, you will still have plenty of room to store your purse and a diaper bag (depending on the size of both of these objects, of course. A duffel bag will not fit into the basket).
    9. The one handed recline and one handed harness adjustment features are amazing. No crazy straps to undo, and no re-threading!
    10. With the normal seat and the second seat attached, they can both recline! Even if the top seat is facing you, you can still recline both seats. This is a huge plus.
    11. It’s very easy to assemble. Installation took about eight minutes.
    12. The extra features and possibilities are really what sold me. Especially with the possibility of a stroller board for older children, I know this stroller will stand the test of time with our family.
    13. Turns on a dime, even with two kids. It maneuvers very well. I can go up and down hills, maneuver malls and sidewalks with ease, even stop abruptly and turn without issues. This is a major problem I’ve had with other strollers. I can even steer with one hand!

    I researched this stroller extensively, in comparison with the Baby Jogger City Select. Here are the reasons why I chose the B-Ready:
    1. Stability with the second seat. With the City Select, having the second…

    The City Select is better for twins – higher weight limit than Britax, February 7, 2013

    This review is from: Britax B-Ready Stroller, Red (Baby Product)

    With three kids under four, including twins, I’ve had my fair share of double strollers. The Baby Jogger City Select and the Britax B -Ready look very similar, but they’re not when used in doubles mode. Which stroller is better really depends on the age of your kids. For twins or children close in weight, I found the City Select has more advantages, but if you have different age kids, the Britax is worth a look.

    Some considerations:

    * The City Select stroller was Baby Gizmo’s top tandem stroller in 2010 — the 2011 model has been redesigned with deeper and firmer seats, improving an already excellent stroller.

    * Of the two, the City Select is a better stroller for twins because of the 45 lb. weight allowance for each of its full-size seats (child’s weight and baggage, for a maximum of 90 lbs overall), foot wells that expand to 10.5 inches and large canopies that raise up to 24″, allowing you to use it all the way up till your children are age 4 or 5. The Britax only has one full size seat as the second seat has a lower weight capacity than the main seat.

    * The Britax B-Ready is a good option if you have two kids of different ages (1 & 3 for example) given the different weight limits on its seats. If you have twins, you’ll be limited by the second seat’s 35 lbs. weight capacity and a 22″ canopy, to about 3 years old – only one child will be able to ride in the stroller past this weight (I still use my City Select with my 4 year old but will be able to use it with both my twins till this age as well).

    * Another important consideration is that the telescoping handle on the City Select extends from 39″ to 41″, whereas the handle on the Britax B-Ready does not (it has a pivot handle that goes up or down but does not extend). This comes in very handy for taller parents, when you raise the canopy on the upper seat (when stadium seating) to give you additional clearance, or when hanging a diaper bag with the seats in the rear-facing position, so the baby is not kicking it.

    * The City Select offers more clearance for walking with the second seat in than the Britax, either front or rear facing.

    * Both seats recline on the Britax forward facing, but the second seat is not reversible. On the City Select, both seats are reversible, but they recline fully only in the rear-facing position (with lots of leg room). I actually prefer this configurations as twins are people-magnets and when they are facing towards me and napping it’s easier for people to stay away.

    * You can hang a larger than average diaper bag (like the Lassig Messenger Eco-Friendly Diaper Bag) from the handle with two seats in the City Select. (Note: the stroller handle says not to but because of the weight distribution I haven’t had any problems).

    * The City Select allows for 16 configurations including two carrycots (Britax has 14)

    * The Britax B-Ready has a more compact footprint than the City Select, a plus if you don’t mind the handle that doesn’t extend or are not a tall parent.

    * For the City Select – handling curbs can be challenging going forward but if you pull the stroller backwards upor down the curb, it’s actually easier than most strollers because of the large back wheels. It hasn’t been an issue for me.

    Some similarities between the two strollers:

    * Similar width at 26″

    * Huge storage basket in both.

    * Tires that handle all surfaces well, indoors and out. It’s worth mentioning that neither stroller is meant for jogging.

    * The City Select with the second seat weighs 33 lbs., similar to Britax’s 36 lb weight, less than iCandy’s hefty 44 lbs.

    * Both have the same recline mechanism on the seats.

    * Easy fold for both. With the Britax, you can leave both seats in and fold quickly. With the City Select, both seats need to be in stadium seating, fully upright with the foot wells folded down as far back as they will go (not horizontal), and then you can fold it with both seats. Honestly, it’s a lot easier and faster to just pop off the seats and fold the frame (plus it fits in most cars because it’s very compact, with the frames and seats folding flat separately).

    * For the City Select, the “Baby Jogger City Select Second Seat Attachment Brackets” are sold separately if needed on mystrollers dot com. You do not have to buy the whole second seat as some older reviews state.

    * Neither stroller’s seats are appropiate for babies 0-6 months (even if the seats recline fully, they’re in a “V” shape as the whole seat tilts). You can get optional car seat adaptors but if you live in a city, you may find that a single snap-n-go/ infant seat with an Ergo carrier for the 2nd baby (w insert #2 for babies 0-4 months) is the easiest way to get around for the first year. A double snap n go is even better and less expensive, and will allow you to use…

    The old vs. the new – it’s the wheels!, June 29, 2012
    By 
    PghYinzer “more of myself after winter” (Pittsburgh, PA United States) –

    I had the old, and now I have the new, and here is how they differ.

    – The new model has a seat with a 4th, totally upright position as well as an easier to open buckle. On the old you had to really press in and tug just so to get the buckle open, on the new the sides just fall out. Personally I found that on the old, my bigger kids did not need that more upright position. My baby kept pulling up on the belly bar and biting chunks of foam off of it, which made me think he wanted to be more upright, but the new 4th position actually seems almost TOO upright to him – he tries to slide out! He’s 15 months, so not super young. I actually got out the level and checked and while the back is now totally upright, the seat part actually seems to slope forward a bit. I expect we may never use the new 4th position. Hard or easy buckle has pros and cons both ways so is the new seat really better? It depends. I do prefer the easier buckle, but some prefer the harder kind. What they should really do is give you two and make them removable, vs. sewn in, so you can pick what works for your family – whether you have an escape artist kid or if you tend to find yourself with only one free hand.

    – The weight limit on the seat is now 55 pounds and I think it was 50 pounds before. There is now an extra strap under the seat cover which I suppose adds more support. However – realistically – this is a SMALL (seat-wise) stroller. I would expect most people are done with it by 3, 3 1/2. At 4, my girls are squished and while we can use this for them, I would not use it all the time. I don’t see putting either a 50 pound or a 55 pound child in either version. (The actually fit better in the 2nd seat, which I think is a tad wider, but has a lower weight limit!)

    – It has a deeper basket – but the difference is marginal. It is POSSIBLY inch deeper and doesn’t matter all for practical purposes. If you take the baskets off (you can unzip at the front, unsnap at the back) and put them on top of each other, they seem pretty much the same. The frames of the strollers are the same so it’s not a difference in how it hangs. If you try to switch the baskets, though, you will get maybe a quarter inch of zipper that doesn’t line up at the front. The difference is VERY minimal.

    – The suspension is somewhat better. It’s a little easier to make the shocks give – but you have to MAKE them give, still, vs. really feeling them give over bumps. This is still not a hard-core off-roading stroller. I do most of my walking in nice weather in a cemetery which has a mix of smooth pavement in good repair, smooth pavement in bad repair, oil & chip type pavement (tiny rocks but all glued together) in good repair, oil & chip in bad repair, and gravel/dirt. Old or new, I will not take this stroller on to the gravel/dirt parts – I will only use my Bob back there. The old did decently on all the other stuff. The new does a bit better – but I largely credit the wheels. Maybe 10% new suspension, 90% new wheels.

    – The wheels are rubbery, forever air, vs. dense foam over plastic as before. They provide a smoother ride. It’s not a Bob, but it is an improvement! They are also quieter – there have been many reports of the old starting to squeak over time, and mine had in fact started making noise after just a few months. The new one is QUIET. So far.

    – The amount of accessories has been cut back. It comes with the cup holder, but no longer includes the rain cover or color-coordinated storage organizer pouch. Admittedly, the pouch organizer thingie was only marginally useful and kind of strange, but it was something, and it matched. For the price this ought to come with SOME sort of parent console! (I use a Jolly Jumper one and it works perfectly – and is cheap – I know Britax sells one now but it is considerably more moola)

    One thing they did not improve which I wish they had was the belly bar. As I mentioned it is covered in foam. Exposed foam. I have seen it referred to as a “choking hazard belly bar” – and I have to agree it very well could be. I have pulled sizable chunks of foam out of my baby’s mouth. The bar needs to come with a color-coordinated cover OR be made of hard plastic. I have ordered the UppaBaby tray to do away with the bar. I have been using it without the bar but my little dude likes to have something to grab.

    It retains all of what I love about the old – flipable seat, baby is comfortable, push is AWESOME, decent sun shade, folds easily, open between back wheels so no kicking while you walk. It’s a wonderful stroller. But if you are trying to decide between the old and new, or wondering if you should sell and upgrade – I think the wheels are the #1 improvement. I really thought it was going to be the seat, but I am on the fence about the seat. It may be possible to snag a killer deal on an old one, and replace the…

    LOVE it! Solid quality, excellent features, February 13, 2013
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Graco DuoGlider Classic Connect Stroller, Dragonfly (Baby Product)
    Awesome stroller! Especially for the price ($118-$130 at time of purchase), it’s solid quality, with fantastic features. It might not be perfect in every respect, but no stroller ever is.

    This stroller is arecent acquisition for us, so I am REALLY excited about it, especially because it has made my life with two kids 2 and under MUCH easier. I have found new freedom and I no longer hesistate to go on a walk with them when I’m bymyself! I think Graco has integrated a lot of new features into this model—taking into account complaints from past customers (reading through the older Duo Glider reviews, it looks like a bunch of them have been addressed).

    I was looking for a simpler, smaller, lighter-weight option for transporting my kiddos when they don’t want to walk. I didn’t want to spend too much since we’ve already spent a lot on strollers in the past. This is a nice alternative to our Uppa Baby Vista stroller with a rumble (second) seat, which is heavy and bulky and takes up a ton of room in the trunk.

    Here are my favorite features:
    1. Really does open and collapse easily with one hand. I’ve tried this on a few occasions holding my 8 month old and it’s been relatively easy. Just unsnap the side lever to unfold, and pull and twist the handlebar to begin collapsing.

    2. Lightweight, yet very sturdy and high quality materials: frame is solid, the fabrics feel thick and durable and relatively waterproof (NOTE: the color was a little darker than I expected—the blue is more of a dark teal)

    3. Assembly is a cinch. Done in about half an hour. I needed to use a little more force than expected to snap trays into place, but all in all, easy enough and pretty quick.

    4. Size: For a two seater, it’s got a compact footprint and is narrow enough to maneuver through tight spaces. You can’t get much smaller than this without giving up comfort, safety and that awesome basket underneath. I’ve taken it up and down hills and around small spaces and it does great!

    5. Both kids have a great view, since the one in back is set up higher.

    6. Both seats have large canopies that generally create shade in the right spots! There’s even a clear backing to the rear canopy, so parents can peek at their babies. The front canopy is HIGHLY adjustable, the rear is stationary and doesn’t shade quite as well, but is adequate.

    7. Both seats have trays and the parent tray is awesome. Note, there are only two cupholder TOTAL on this model. The back seat tray is a little lame and lacks a cupholder—whatever (I’ll use my dropper stopper for that). Parent’s tray has one deep, sturdy cupholder (which keeps liquids away from babies and has the canopy as an added barrier). There’s a reasonably large, deep, lidded container for keys, wallet, wipes, phone, whatever…

    8. The basket underneat is very large and the kids’ feet don’t take up precious cargo space—which is the problem with my UPPA baby Vista when I use the second (rumble) seat.

    NEGATIVES:
    1. Rear child tray has no cupholder

    2. Both seats have only two positions: for the front it’s either upright OR deeply reclined (quite nice), for the rear, it adjusts from upright to completely flat. No inbetween. This is unclear from the product description. A slightly upright, but reclined position option would have been nice, but isn’t the end of the world.

    3. The rear seat is slightly angled downward and has a tendancy to slide the child’s bottom forward. I make sure the seatbelt is tight, especially because my child’s feet can’t reach the footrest.

    4. As with ALL IN-LINE strollers, the child in the back has the ability to kick the seat of the child in front, and the child in the rear can reach and possibly rub the head of the child in front. Depends on how well-behaved your kids are! Choose seat selection accordingly!

    All in all: a fantastic product, with an excellent price. Highly recommended!!!!!!

    Good but with a few annoying features (or lack there of), March 14, 2013
    By 
    C. Kerian (Rochester, MN) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Graco DuoGlider Classic Connect Stroller, Dragonfly (Baby Product)

    I love this stroller in some ways and really am baffled by it in others.

    First off, I have tall children, so I reasonably expected that my 3 year old would have head room issues. That wasn’t my biggest hiccup though. The depth of the chair in front is very shallow. When he sits on it he has several inches above the knee hanging over the edge of the chair and his foot rest in front is almost tucked under the chair not out in front like my Graco single stroller. Kind of annoying for a kid with long legs because the edge of the foot rest hits the back of his ankles.

    The basket is great and the adjustable nature of the front canopy is well done, however I have noticed that the slope of the back seat is a little severe. The strap under the seat keeps it high in back but there is no second strap to give support in the front so the front part of the back seat slopes down and deep in the center. I have rectified this by running a wide strap of heavy velcro under the front of the back seat and looping it around each side bar to support it more but really, this should have been a design given. You never want your child to be sliding forward on their chair and therefore straining against the harnesses constantly. It’s uncomfortable for them and unnecessary wear on the straps.

    It takes a little getting used to with the way it folds and unfolds but the design in solid there.

    The front wheels annoy me a bit. They came pre-assembled and you just snap them on, BUT the axles seem a bit loose to me because I can see the wheels slide a bit on their axle as I am walking and therefore the wheels tend to have a bit of inward or outward tilt to them at times. It’s strain on the axle, tire tread, and axle mount that really should be tightened up and fixed with a couple of o-rings or washers to keep the shift from happening.

    My husband, who is 6’4″, had no troubles pushing this stroller and walking normally. Our single stroller annoys him because he constantly kicks the back of the basket or frame when he is walking, but with this one he had no troubles at all.

    Steering wise its alright so far. I notice it is harder to steer if I put my oldest in front and 18m old in the rear, vs the reverse of that. So being front heavy with front swivel wheels is a bit harder to handle than the reverse but that’s not unexpected. Outside of that, it steers easily though I don’t think I could one hand steer it like I do my single just because of the added length. Also, not unexpected.

    The snap on trays…oh those stupid things. Who designed them? What were they thinking? Do they even have kids? So here is my rant on the idiocy behind the snap on trays. They snap on, they are sturdy. They take a crowbar to get off and they don’t open at all for easy loading in and out of the whee tyrants. The front one is solid and had a nice height, but I am 8 months pregnant and trying to lift a 35# kid into a stroller instead of pulling the little clip and flipping it open like my single stroller does so he can climb in and out himself. The back on has been chucked into a corner and left for dust collecting. It is essentially a brace bar for a car seat to be set on but as anything else it is useless. It has no cup holder, or real tray depth and because your under basket goes all the way under this seat straight through to under their foot rest, which is would be nice if there were some kind of fabric to keep the rocks and gravel on my kids shoes from dropping into my basket but I plan to find a fix for that as well…back to my rant…the tray again takes a CROWBAR to peel it off and it doesn’t really do anything but give me something to try and lift the kid around when seating them and something for them to bang on when they want to be loud. If you don’t need to put a carseat in the back, leave this thing off altogether. And again..WHY doesn’t the front one swivel open for easy seating? Why, Graco, why? End rant here.

    The full fold down bed in back is really nice for little ones who need to sleep and can’t really do it sitting up without waking every 10 minutes or so. Both the additional shade and shelter from noise and wind helps the keep the smaller ones out for the count. Though it is worth noting, the back seat only has 2 positions, up and flat, the up position is comfortable reclined and hasn’t really given me any issue. The positions of the front chair are limited due to it being a tandem stroller but I didn’t think it was that bad as long as the one in the back doesn’t mistake the head of the kid in front for a bongo drum. (or GASP…hair pullers, ouch) My daughter likes to rub her brothers head to make it stand on end because he has very fine hair and static builds quickly. Poor boy.

    The fabric is a good color scheme for spills and clean up. =) Access to the lower basket for clean up can be tricky but I have found…

    I love this stroller!!! I needed it or my 2 year old and my new born and it’s awesome and is not expensive at all!!!I love the huge basket it has at the bottom of it. And you can hook the car seat on the back seat of the stroller for your your newborn. I’d reccomend this to anyone. I folds down nicely too. This stroller doesn’t take up much more room than a single stroller.
