I agree, it is the best for the price.
By J. Brady
After owning it for two weeks, and navigating it through several airports, I am very happy with this stroller. I did a lot of research before purchasing it. I wanted a stroller that was smaller and easier to manage than the (used) Graco LiteRider that I had been using, but still a little more than just a standard umbrella stroller. This stroller fit the bill. (I’ve been using this stroller with my 10 month old who is 22 lbs and 28 inches).
*Rolls very smoothly
*Navigates and turns very easily. I can easily push it with only one hand (when necessary) on indoor surfaces and sidewalks. Sorry, haven’t tried it outdoors yet, other than sidewalks, so I can’t comment there.
*Light enough to lift and move one-handed without difficulty.
*TRUE one-handed fold. You really CAN fold it, then lift it, with only one hand, and it is very easy and natural after just a little “practice”
*Reclines. Not to a fully horizontal position, but to a do-able napping position for my 10 month old.
*Relatively substantial (for a stroller this size/weight) basket underneath (I put a mid-size diaper bag and my purse in it).
*Trays for parent and child.
*Stands upright on its own after folding
*Nice sun canopy with “window”
*It lacks any sort of “locking mechanism” to keep it from opening from the folded position. BUT NOTE: I don’t see this being a problem in most daily use situations. Generally I probably would not even want to “lock” it, because, not being locked, it is very easy to open one handed. It does not come open in the car, and it stands upright on its own if you set it on a flat surface (at home, etc.). However, I was worried about it on airplanes. My solution: Zip Ties. ALSO NOTE: Oddly, the picture of the stoller on this site, as well as the product box, shows a red piece on the side that one would think is a locking mechanism, however, it did not exist on the product in any of the boxes at the retailer I purchased mine from. I haven’t gotten answers from the manufacturer yet.
*The childs cup holder is not big enough for most standard sippy cups. However, at this price, I can live with that. It is GREAT for cereal o’s.
*It would be nice if it would recline a little bit further, and I don’t really see why they can’t arrange that. But, as I said, it is a do-able napping position, so at this price… give and take.
*The stroller is very comfortable for me to push. I am 5’4″. It is probably fine for most, but I can imagine that if you are quite tall, it might be a little short.
*I read several reviews complaining about the “slippery” fabric. I guess it is a little bit slick, but for me and my 10-month old, this has not caused any problems or issues. Just make sure your child is buckled.
*The “cargo bags” seems kind of silly and useless to me. They are small and flimsy, and I just took them off to simplify. But who knows, maybe you would find a use for them. Maybe I will, too, someday. Maybe.
*I think the fabric colors are a bit darker than they appear in the picture. The main color is a darker slightly greenish khaki. I, personally, like the look of it. It is very neutral (and gender neutral as well).

Excellent Price, Great Stroller
By Richard Cardwell
I had my doubts about this stroller because of the low price (*Keep an eye on the price because it fluctuates*). However, after reading all the reviews and specifications, I decided to give it a try even though I am 6′ tall. The Amazon ordering experience was top notch. When the stroller arrived it came in the original box from the manufacturer, pictures and all. I found the assembly to be very easy, the basic instructions gave me all the direction I needed, and the stroller was up and running in about 15 minutes.
I decided to test my primary worry, the height. When unfolded, the stroller handles came to just about 38 inches. I was able to stand comfortably and easily push the stroller without straining my back. Now, of course if you stand completely straight up (at 6′), you will begin to feel yourself reaching that maximum safe comfort zone. Still though, I found it acceptable. The stroller is considerably light, and has a quality appearance. The Jeep branding certainly adds to the overall flavor. I was suprised at the overall high quality impression this stroller gave me. It did not look cheap at all. In fact, I would never have guessed it was so affordable just looking at it!
There is some marginal shock absorbing ability in the front wheels, which is sufficient for normal use. When folded, I found that it fit very easily into the trunk of my mid size Pontiac Grand Am. It folds very well and with little effort (after pushing the folding button). It stands upright and does not unfold by itself (unless the wheels are not in the correct position). It does recline to a reasonable level, and contains storage bags on either side. I would not recommend using this stroller for jogging or operating off road.
- Nice Colors
- Jeep Branding
- Shock Absorbing Front Wheels
- Easy Folding and Unfolding (can be done with one hand)
- Great Price!!
- High quality “look and feel”
- Parent Tray and Child Tray
- It is inexpensive enough that you could probably also buy a second “other” stroller for a different need.
- No Folding Lock mechanism (Hardly a complaint though, given all the other good attributes)
Overall, I am very happy with my purchase, and would definitely recommend it! Great for those with a busy and active lifestyle.

After reading all the good reviews and considering the price, I ordered this for my 7 month old daughter. The good part is – this stroller is light weight, easy to assemble and move around. However during our very first trip to the mall I noticed that our daughter likes to lean her head to the side. This stroller does not have a head support flap, so my baby’s head is actually leaning against the metal rod; not good. Also, the material is plastic like ( polymer) and tends to not dissipate body heat. I decided to buy a padded body support from a local store for this stroller but instead bumped onto a better stroller: Graco LiteRider, which I ended up ordering from amazon (this is much better and the price is almost the same). I am going to return this jeep stroller back.
