I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Urbini. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for participating.
As the mom of 2 kids 4 and under, one thing I depend on is having a good stroller. After all, you never know when someone's legs will give out. Or is it just my children that seem to forget that they do in fact know how to walk? I swear, my 3 year old son, Xander, constantly claims he cannot walk. And of course, it's always when we're out and about running errands. I can't really blame the lil' guy, though. Keeping up with a fast-paced world on 2 stubby little legs can be difficult, I'm sure.
My babies are no longer babies, so a full-sized stroller doesn't really serve much purpose anymore. I tend to gravitate more towards lightweight, umbrella-style strollers. They're easy to handle and don't weigh me down when I am chasing after 2 very quick and clever preschoolers.
That being said, traditional umbrella strollers do come with their fair share of issues. Many are cheaply made, flimsy, and aren't too secure. What good is a stroller if a child can climb right out?
So when I learned about the great new lightweight strollers from Urbini, I was definitely intrigued. An incredibly lightweight stroller with all the features of a full-sized stroller? Is it too good to be true? Plus, it will accommodate children up to 50lbs and 45 inches tall.
Well I received the Urbini Hummingbird stroller to check out for myself, and I have to say, I am pretty darn impressed. It very well may be the best lightweight stroller on the market!
So why am I making such a bold claim? Well for one, this baby weights about 7lbs. That's right. It weighs about the same amount as an average newborn. There is no wrestling with a bulky and cumbersome piece of baby gear. You've got enough of those already, right?
You can also fold it with a quick, one-handed operation. When folded, it's pretty compact and will be able to fit into even tight spaces like my trunk after spending $400 on groceries. True story.
Another thing I love about Urbini is that they pair basic black with fun, vibrant colors like Raspberry Pink, Lime, and the gorgeous Peacock seen below. I know...Function over fashion, but why not have both?
Good looks aside, there are plenty of great features that make Urbini a natural choice when selecting a lightweight baby stroller. For one, it keeps baby very secure with a 5-point harness. Xander is a little monkey and often tries to climb out of strollers, but this keeps him in his seat very well.
The seat also has a multi-position reclining feature which is great for times when baby gets tired and needs a little nap. It doesn't lay back totally flat, but it does recline enough to give a comfortable place to catch a few Z's.
The Hummingbird also features an incredibly strong aluminum frame. (That's also why it's so unbelievably lightweight!) This stroller is very, very sturdy and doesn't wobble at all, unlike a lot of other lighter-weight strollers.
The Urbini Hummingbird also has a soft, swivel armbar that allows you to remove baby from the stroller very easily. I love that it's padded so well. This definitely helps prevent injury, especially when my kids "head-bang". (They must get that from their Daddy!)
It also features a canopy to protect baby from harsh sunlight. It has 2 different positions, or you can push back the canopy altogether. It's pretty versatile and the ideal stroller for any season.
Of course you'll want to avoid runaway strollers. Have you ever had a stroller try and outsmart you by rolling away? I sure have, and it can be nerve-wrecking! The Urbini Hummingbird has a lock feature that locks the wheels in place to prevent any movement. These locks can be set with your foot and are located near the rear wheels.
If you're anything like me, you probably need to tote around a lot of random stuff when heading out with your kids. Small toys or games, snacks, sippy cups or bottles, extra clothing, diapers, Jimmy Hoffa's body...You know that as parents, we tend to carry an insane amount of stuff for our kids.
The Hummingbird offers a generously sized basket to store some of those essentials. This is where I tend to throw the diaper bag, my purse, extra blankets, etc. One time, I accidentally took a cat out of the house momentarily because she had made herself a comfy snooze nest in this basket. Have you ever tried to catch a loose cat outdoors? It's not easy. Trust me on that. So always make sure that small pets aren't snoozing away here before leaving the house.
So there are some of the reasons I am head over heels in love with our Urbini Hummingbird stroller. It's so easy to maneuver, and it is probably the lightest stroller of any kind that I've ever owned. I don't think I've ever formally weighed my old simple umbrella strollers, but I am willing to bet that they weigh about the same if not a tad bit more than the Hummingbird. I was absolutely delighted that I can get the feather-light weight of an umbrella stroller with the sturdiness and convenience features of a full-sized stroller. If you're looking for a great stroller, I would very highly recommend this one. It's strong, safe, sturdy and stylish. What more could a Mom want?
