The First Years Gray Dusk Jet Stroller Review and Giveaway
Day One of my birthday bash is about being "On The Go". Now that my son is a year old I feel like we are going to be able to go more places and do more when we are there. The park will be more interactive, shopping trips filled with more excitement and just a general feeling of discovery all around us. With each new adventure there will be fun and joy mixed in with melt downs and mishaps but with the help of the right items a parent can be more prepared to deal with it all.
The first thing I thought of when I wanted something to make being on the go easier was a lighter more convenient stroller. Our current stroller is bulky and heavy making outings a bit hard having to pull the stroller in and out of our truck over and over. I thought I would never find an umbrella stroller I would like. To me they were too short and did not seem sturdy enough for me. After having the opportunity to review The First Years Gray Dusk Jet Stroller I am certain that this stroller is the solution for most moms that need a lighter stroller.
Right out of the box I knew the stroller was much taller than most strollers like it and has a sturdiness to it I can trust. This stroller is lightweight only weighing 11 pounds. My son is a wiggle worm and I have always worried he would find a way out of or to tip an umbrella stroller but with this one he was harness strapped in and he could not get the stroller moving around when he was in it. At first as always with my guy he was mad to be harnessed in but after a few minutes of strolling around the house in it he was fine. He even fell asleep in it a few times while we were out and about.
The canopy is very easy to take on and off and here in California it is a must have on an umbrella stroller to keep the sun off my son's face. The basket is big enough for a small diaper bag and your purse with additional side pockets on each side of the stroller for things such as gloves, spare socks, binkies, snacks, and wipes. My favorite part was the multifunctional parent console. It has a place for drinks, a zip pouch and compartments to place things like your keys or coupons in.
Overall I loved this stroller, my husband enjoyed pushing it since it was tall and looked sleek, and my son loves to hold onto the sides of the stroller as a pushed him all around when we were out on the go.
