After purchasing our Uppababy Vista stroller, I wrote a review indicating our choice and why.
So, Connor is 8 days old, and we have had a chance to try out the stroller: was it worth it?
After 8 days, a trip to Babies R Us and Milo’s training class, we are very pleased with our choice. The stroller glides effortlessly and turns on a dime. Maneuvering tight aisles is a breeze and the stroller is easily steered one handed. The ride is smooth enough that the baby stays sound asleep.
Perhaps the most telling evidence was my sister’s evaluation. My sister worked through college as a nanny in South Orange County. When we told her about the stroller we were looking at, she indicated that her employer ‘spent her money on other things.’ She had not handled an Uppababy Vista before and was only peripherally familiar with them.
When she took the stroller for the first time in Babies R Us, her jaw dropped. She said that it was like no stroller she had ever used, and had used a bunch of them. She commended our choice, and it will likely be the stroller that she will buy after she gets married and has kids.
If you are considering the Vista, it has our full endorsement!
