Hi everyone, Melissa here at CloudMom backat Albee Baby on the upper west side of the big apple talking strollers today.
What doyou need? What do you not need? What is the most practical thing for you given your lifestyle?What I have here in front of me here is actually one of my favorite strollers.
It is a Chicco,some people say Chicco but�s actually Chicco C6 2012 stroller.
It can take your baby frombetween 6 all the way to 36 months and up to 37 Lbs.
The way I like to think about thisstroller is it has exactly what you need – no more, no less.
I think it's fabulous.
Andit prices out between $70 and $80 so really if you're a simply person that doesn't wantto fuss with a lot of bells and whistles, this might be right stroller for you.
Let'squickly go through how this works.
Okay, number one- two breaks, one for each set up backwheels.
These are classic wheels but they are sturdy.
They work by just pushing themdown like this.
You can see I have scandals on and it's fine.
Number two; this is howyou're going to collapse this stroller.
It has a little piece here you can find it bythis red button.
You need to push this piece out with your foot and then you need to pushit up and then you're going to push the stroller forward to collapse it.
So it's going to comeout like this and then you're going to move it up.
And I'm going to show you with my foot.
So I go out like that, I go up like that, and I push it forward, click.
Here's the littlelatch which indicates to me that my stroller's collapse.
This is very, very light.
Okay,for those of you who have started to get to know me, know that I'm not the strongest personand this is no trouble at all for me to lift.
I've got the shoulder strap like this so Ican carry this if I've got bags or other things.
It's really pretty easy.
Okay, I'm going touncollapse I'm going to show you the under basket storage.
Now in order to get this safetypiece to unlock, sometimes you have to push it in a little bit here and then that easilyunlatches like that and then you just sort of shake it out into position and you pushdown on the stroller right here on the back with your foot, like that, boom – not difficult.
Okay, a couple other things.
I think this is really nice basket, it's not super easyto access because you have to go through this little cross metal area here, but it's pretty,pretty sufficient.
The recline feature on the Chicco is very, very easy.
All you needto do is unzip here and you have two positions: a more upright position and a reclined positionfor your baby.
It�'s not a full recline, it's a partial recline, but pretty good.
Youcan snap it here so that your baby's protected from the sun in the back, snaps there.
Okay,here's the canopy -it's not the most protective canopy that goes all the way down.
If youhave a pretty small baby, I think you can always throw a burp cloth over there as longas you have ventilation on the sides.
This is what I did for my babies before they hadthese huge canopy's that are so great.
Okay, you've got a nice 5-point harness here.
Itclips in here like this.
This is more of a traditional clip.
What you do is you takethis upper piece, you push it in, it clips onto there, and then this piece clips rightin there, like that.
Okay, and then when you want to unloosen it you have to push in herewith both fingers from the sides.
So you push in like that and you unloosen it on both sidesso this is not the easiest, but it's totally fine.
So that's the way that works.
Okay,so this stroller is only $70-$80.
It doesn't have all the bells and whistles like a singlehandle bar and some of the other things, but it is something that's very popular, veryreasonably priced.
Let's talk about some of the reviews and things that people have saidabout this stroller that have used it.
The Chicco C6 does not have a huge storage areaunderneath, it has this basket – some people wish that it were a bit more generous.
Second,the recline feature – it does recline but it only has 2 reclining positions so it'snot going to get your baby into a fully reclined position.
And finally, it does not come witha drink cup holder so keep that in mind if that's important to you.
But all in all, fora stroller that's priced within $70-$80 what you'll get with this is a nice sturdy strollerwith a decent canopy, good maneuverability, easy to collapse, and very lightweight totransport so I really think it's a great thing to consider.
It's one of my favorite strollers.
So anyway, thanks for joining CloudMom and see you all next time!.
