Last summer, I was looking for a great stroller to fly with. I was traveling with my 11 month old daughter and wanted a stroller that would fold up like an umbrella stroller but also had a nice basket and canopy. I of course was drawn to the expensive brands but was also looking to stay within my budget. I found a great deal on this 2006 model on ebay. Being the previous year's model, it was over half off. I had my choice of colors but of course chose hot pink for my princess.

The canopy is large and does a great job. The basket is functional but the opening is a bit small to get things in and out. The stroller did come with a clear rain cover which I have used and it does keep her very dry and out of the wind as well. There was a mesh net also, which I assume is a sun shade but I have yet to try that. It steers well and the handles are at a great height for me--a bit taller than my cheap smaller umbrella stroller. This one does fold up similar to an umbrella, but slightly larger. It has a carry handle but I would have prefered a strap like some of the others I was looking at. The seat pad does slide down a bit though so I have to pull it up each time I put her in, but that's a minor issue. It has a 5 point harness as well.

I get a lot of compliments on this stroller and nobody else around here has one like it. It worked great on my trip and I still use it all the time. It has been a great stroller!
