I am so excited to bring you today’s review of the Baby Trend Sit N' Stand stroller. I am positively in love with it. When the opportunity was presented to us to review a stroller from Baby Trend, FTD declared we needed a Sit n’ Stand stroller. I was not so sure since I use the hell out of our lightweight one. Then FTD started talking about the features of a Sit N' Stand, Oliver’s needs and what kind of stroller would be the best long term for our family. I started to see things his way…
- Ollie is growing up and getting restless in his stroller. The Sit N stand allows him to have options, and it makes it easier on us not having to get him in and out repeatedly on walks through the zoo or park.
- In the event that we have a baby 2 (Don’t get any ideas just yet you all!) The sit n stand is made for just that. We can put a newborn carrier in one section (Front or Back!!) until the baby is big enough to sit upright, while Ollie sits (or stands) in the other.
- For traveling across the world, or just through the airport, the sit n stand holds our luggage.
- The stroller is perfect for our family now and later.
Since FTD did the assembly and first stroll around the block with Oliver in the Baby Trend Sit N' Stand, I am going to turn it over to him for the bulk of our review....
FTD here Ladies and Gents! I thought I'd share a few points and facts about the assembly and features of this stroller and how it stacks up against the others we've used over the past 15 months or so.
I was a little bit worried when the box arrived as it was quite large. I organised my tools, cracked open a sly beer and mentally prepared myself for hours of screwing, tightening and reading manuals in Chinese. How wrong I was! This is easily the simplest and most basic assembly of a stroller EVER in the history of strollers!!!
|See! only a couple of pieces* to assemble. |
*Professor the cat not included.
The wheels are super sturdy, the frame has a stylin' almost indestructible silver-grey paint, there's HEAPS of storage, the grips are the comfortable "non-sticky" type, the fabric is breathable and easily cleaned BUT most importantly there are FIVE Cupholders! FIVE!
The upper two comfortably held my beer while I trudged about the busted, uneven pavement - daring the cans to topple. Yet they survived! That's a FIRST ladies and Gents! The other two easily interchangeable holders were perfect for Ollie's snacks and a bottle of water and were equally sturdy! I LOVE this thing!
The handy streamlined "parent" tray held the old iPhone, wallet and keys and the kiddie tray has another drink holder and was cleverly designed to quick-release so you can get a kid in and out FAST!
Most Importantly...Ollie loves it too! He happily jumps into the "backseat" where he can watch me push him about or if he's sleepy, I just pop him in the front and let him recline and relax. He can stand and eat his snacks in the back, the shade was easily adjustable to block sunlight and the whole thing is SAFE with buckles, straps and a five point harness too.
WELL DONE Baby Trend! Finally...a future-proof, well designed, sturdy stroller that can hold my beer too.
