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.
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!
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?
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 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!)
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.
