Do you want to head out in the snow? Do you live in a climate where there are snow and ice on the ground for most of the year? This stroller comes with accessories that are perfect for a cold weather expedition. You can get the winter ski attachment which are little skis that attach to the wheels of the buggy, letting you travel over snow and ice with ease. This attachment also works wonders in the sand.
This stroller is perfect for just about anything and can go almost anywhere. It will make heading out for an adventure or going out for your daily workouts a breeze. The transition between use in urban or rural settings is excellent, especially for parents who need that freedom of choice in their stroller.
Ease of Use
Traveling over rough terrains or popping up curbs can prove to be a challenge for some off-road buggies, but this one does it without hesitation. The large wheels make it sail over rough patches while the excellent weight distribution and overall design of the stroller allow you to pop that front tire up easily so you can get right over the curb with no problems.
Reclining the seat for your little one is a breeze while you are on the go. You can adjust it from sitting straight up to fully reclined, depending on the needs and wants of your little one.
Storage. There is so much storage. There is plenty of space to hold all the essentials you need for taking your little one out and about and even extra room for those non-essentials. The basket under the chair has a 22-pound capacity, which is more significant than many of the other strollers on the market. Not only do you get this durable and sizable compartment, but there are also pockets galore. You can store your phone and keys easily, water bottles and snacks, even toys for your little one.
The adjustable handlebar is a big selling point of the Urban Jungle, allowing you to move the bar to the perfect height for optimal comfort. You also get to take advantage on a hand brake, allowing you to keep control while heading down hills, so your carriage does not get away from you.
The option to switch the front wheel so it can swivel or stay locked in a huge advantage. Allowing you to leave it unlocked, allowing you to maneuver easily through the city streets or if you are heading to a shopping mall or amusement park. If you are heading out for a run or traversing rough terrain, then you will want a little more stability which you can get from locked the tire.
A unique feature to the Urban Jungle is it has ski attachments available (sold separately), so you can even travel with ease over snow or ice, allowing you to float right over the ground. This attachment also makes walking on beaches easier and more convenient.
The hand brake is a great safety feature that many runners can appreciate. This comes in especially handy if there are a lot of hills along the way. It is going to help you keep control of your speed when you are going down, preventing you from losing control and letting the buggy get away from you.
There are a couple of colors that you can choose from when ordering this buggy so you can try to find a style that will best work for your families wants and needs. You can pick from silver, berry, or black. Consumers love the color options and the style of the Urban Jungle.
The back of the seat is a bit longer than the average buggy, giving you a little extra headroom for your little one as they grow. Additionally, it features a retractable leg extension that will provide them with some extra legroom and better comfort.
The frame is lightweight, but don't let that fool you, it is not going to break unexpectedly, which is always a good thing. You aren't going to have to worry about hitting the trails and having the buggy break or fall apart on you with your little one along for the ride.
The one downfall that many customers have mentioned about the longevity of the stroller comes from the tires. They tend to wear down rather quickly and will need to be replaced. You can simply order new tires for the buggy, and you will be good to go, they are super easy to swap out. Although, it can be frustrating knowing that they can wear down faster than usual.
Of course, you are going to want to take care of the product, and not abuse it too much; otherwise, it might not last as long as you would like. As long as it is taken care of you should have no problems making the Urban Jungle last years, sometimes through even more than one child.
The buggy has a width of only 25 inches so it can squeeze through narrow spaces as needed, typically if you are shopping or spending the day at an amusement park with your family. It comes with three 12-inch tires so you can travel just about anywhere with ease.
The seat of the stroller can lay flat to accommodate a newborn child, with the use of an infant seat, and can carry a child up to 77 pounds. The retractable leg rest gives added comfort to your child as he/she grows, allowing them extra legroom as they get taller.
There are many accessories that you can purchase, separately to give you a better and more comfortable experience while you are out and about. If you have a newborn at home and still want to use this buggy you can always get the car seat adaptor or CarryCot to use with it, allowing to go safely bring baby along for the ride.
If you have a child at home and plan to add another member to your family, this stroller is compatible with most +one accessories, allowing you to make it a double without having to purchase a brand new buggy.
