1. Quick Assembly and User-Friendly
Many parents, even moms, find assembly of the Citi Mini Double Stroller to be a cinch with manual instructions that are easy to understand. They were even more thrilled to know that it’s easy to use, with no features having any complicated procedures. That alone is already a promising start of what good things this stroller can do.
2. Easy Maneuverability
Although a side-by-side stroller can be a little challenging to maneuver, most parents consider the Citi Mini Double Stroller to be an exception. With a good turning radius, navigation is quite smooth even with 2 kids inside and can amazingly pass through standard doorways and aisles at the mall. Pushing the stroller is easy even with just one hand.
3. Easy Folding and Storing
A couple said that they found this stroller to be really easy to collapse and store even if their model doesn’t come with an automatic locks. Of course, as it’s a double stroller, it can’t fold as compactly as a single stroller does but so far, it folds down quite compactly for its size. As one mom shared, it folds flatter compared to other strollers, fits her trunk with no problems and still have room available for her groceries and other shopping bags.
4. Reclinable and Roomy Seats
Seats are reclinable which really comes in handy when you have an infant below 6 months old because he or she can sleep quite comfortably while you’re going about your errands. It’s also deep enough for older kids to be comfortable while riding. Some parents commented that their kids have to lean forward though to see each other but this isn’t really a major issue. If anything, some parents like that the kids have some sort of privacy from the other so that they won’t end up fighting.
Some flaws parents found of the Citi Mini Double Stroller are nothing really major but still could work as suggestions of improvement to the manufacturer. For starters, there’s not much storage space for a diaper bag and the storage basket is a bit hard to access especially if you have bigger bags. Moreover, it doesn’t come with storage where you can put your things like your phone, keys and the like.
The second concerns that of accessories. One mom said she wished that the stroller came with a parent or kid tray. On that note, another dad said that at the price the Citi Mini Double Stroller comes, some of the accessories should have been included too like the parent or kid trays.
The Citi Mini Double Stroller, which is NOT made for jogging purposes, was dubbed by its manufacturers as “an award winning stroller that captures the essence of urban mobility.” By the praises it got, many of the parents agree with this statement. Flaws it had proved to be a minor issue because overall, it doesn’t affect the stroller’s overall performance. As one dad said, it’s neither the lightest nor the strongest double stroller but it’s a good compromise for the money.
