If this pushchair had been around 4 years ago I would never have had to buy any other. I bought mine 2nd hand about a month ago and it's been in use every day. I've been walking around town (about 7miles a day), over tracks, on the train and in the car.
This is a little list of what I wanted and what I've got:
*Parent facing as my 10mo went into our forward facing BJCM and hated it.
*Good to walk with and easy to steer
*Folds in one piece and with no faffing
*Fits a 3.5yo in
*Decent size basket for shopping and bits (this basket is HUGE. I've had the changing bag, a small bike and some shopping in there at the same time).
On top of all that this is a brilliant BJ product so the hood is massive to keep the sun and rain off, the seat is comfy, straps are info@olneyonline and it feels properly made and like it will last for the next 3years and still have life to be able to pass it on.
I love this pushchair!Read moreLess

This is the buggy that has everything. It's easy to fold, faces both directions, it fits in my fiat punto boot without taking the wheels off and it looks good and has a good quality feel to it. it also has a massive and easily accessible shopping basket.
The only thing is that it's a bit heavy compared to the city mini and that makes it a bit harder to fold. And I'm not sure if I like the handbrake although my husband prefers it so I guess it depends on preference, other than that I love it!Read moreLess

"Loving the Baby Jogger City Versa - quick to fold and handy reversible seat…"
Thank you Baby Jogger. Just bought Versa in silver. It's a brilliant single buggy which has the reversible seat option so your child can face you or away from you! If only this had been around when my first child was born. Would have saved lots of screaming fits I am sure!
The other best bit is the one handed fold! You can fold the buggy whilst holding your child. Genius.
If you are looking for a good price, you will need to ring round or email the independent retailers as it seems they are not allowed to show their prices on the web! It took me all day to ring round. So to save you that time and energy, I called bambbinodirect, Winstanleys, Simplebaby and BuggyBaby. Went with buggybaby as they answered immediately (some didn't return my calls)and were competitively priced.
I can't recommend the product more highly.Read moreLess

"After more than 20 pushchairs this is the Winner of my Singles - Finally I hear my husband sigh…"
I have never said this before but with this pushchair I dont have to compromise. I only wish it had been invented 6 years ago, it could have saved me a fortune!
- Its parent facing and not just in lay flat mode like the zapp xtra - finally!
- The pushchair folds with the seat on regardless which way it faces (unlike any)
- It have a small fold (Ok not a zapp or zia but not far off and can do so much more)
- It can go over rough ground (unlike the bee of the others)
- Has a large and accessable basket
- Handlebar moves for height adjustment
- Even weight distribution in either parent or forward mode even with a buggy board
Honestly the only thing I am not keen on is the brake (its a hand brake not a foot brake) but this is definately personal choice not a fault with the pushchair.
I have sold all the others and this is the last one for me along with my last baby.
Baby Jogger on this one occassion for me you have done better than any other including the bubble, bee or zapp xtra. Please make a double version of the same concept.Read moreLess

"Best pushchair I've used…"
I've been looking for a parent facing, easy to use and easy to fold pushchair from day one. This ticks all the boxes!
It folds in 2 steps but with one hand - you fold the seat in half then pull a strap up and the frame folds. The seat unit is easily reversible. It has the same generous hood as the other baby jogger pushchairs with magnetic flaps so you can keep an eye on your baby without disturbing them (much better than the velcro on my BJCM which used to wake my DS up).
The seat has 3 positions in each direction and the harness is easy to adjust. The seat is large and my son is very comfortable in it. The basket is huge and easy to access. The handlebar can be moved up and down to make it adjustable for people of different heights. It has good suspension, turns easily and has very light steering.
The only downside is it's surprisingly heavy once folded but all the plus points far outweigh this for me, and it's worth it for such a solid feeling pushchair. I only wish this was out 2yrs ago and then I wouldn't have gone through a Bugaboo bee/McClaren/BJCM first!Read moreLess
