After months of raving to my daughter about the indispensable convenience of umbrella strollers I finally picked up this model at our local Wal-Mart store for use with my granddaughter.
I cannot tell you how disappointed I am! First of all, IT IS WAY TOO SHORT! I had to hunch over like a little old lady to even push the thing, and I'm only 5' 7". Why didn't they just extend the handles so a normal person can push it while standing upright?
Secondly, one of the things I always found so convenient about an umbrella stroller was the fact that you could pop them open one handed and then lock them into position by stepping on the mechanism with your foot. There's no such option wit this model, so you have to make sure both hands are completely free in order to manipulate it.
Conversely, with "back in the day" models you could fold them up and the latch would automatically secure them closed when you popped it down all the way. With this one you have to grab the locking latch with a free hand and secure it into position.
And as others have said, it is cheaply made. I understand that this is an inexpensive item, but umbrella strollers have always been inexpensive, and they somehow attained a reasonable level of quality up to now.
And finally, the design is silly and low end. I was willing to overlook the faux nylon tiara on top of the canopy for the sake of convenience, but given the other flaws with this stroller it's just too much to take.
