The Stroller aka Harper’s Ride

uppababy stroller review, itsy bitsy indulgences

When it came time to picking out Harper’s first set of wheels, I had two brands in mind. I consulted with my friends, did my own research, and easily landed on an UPPAbaby. It was endorsed by all my friends for its “lightweight” frame and “ease of portability.” The bassinet was touted as “a bed on wheels” for the little one. So, it was only natural, with reviews like that, that I too, landed on the UPPAbaby Vista stroller. When the stroller arrived TJ and I excitedly put it together…. even pushed it around the house a few times, envisioning what it would be like when little Harper arrived. So, the real test happened when we brought her home and decided to go on our first family walk (I secretly couldn’t wait to use the stroller!). Needless to say, we were more than happy with the “real thing.”

I have personally found this stroller to be the best fit for our family. We are definitely an on-the-go crew and the Vista model is a perfect fit for our lifestyle (Harper’s pretty content with her ride too). I love the storage space at the bottom, as it is enough to hold the diaper bag, several shopping bags (trust me, I’ve tried this many times), and a sweater or two. It maneuvers easily and those wheels are the equivalent to 20 inch rims on a tricked out ride. Other features that I absolutely love? It’s lightweight, easy to collapse (of course, it took this new mom a little while to get the hang of it…), and fits nicely into the travel bag (which will be getting more use this weekend!). I love that it can grow with Harper, as it has a toddler seat (which she can actually start to use now!), in addition to the comfortable bassinet for the baby stages (up to 20 pounds)… and when our family grows (no plans anytime soon!!) it can accommodate up to three little kiddos! So, my motto of invest once and use again and again holds true for this Range Rover of strollers.

I highly recommend getting the UPPAbaby carseat as well so that you can transition from the car to stroller seamlessly when the little one is asleep (because who wants to wake a sleeping baby? Especially when you’re heading into the store… not me!). Oh, and don’t forget the cup holder! It’s not easy to hold a drink and push a stroller (or maybe that’s just me…).

    Hi — question for you. when do you use the carrier bag? I was considering buying it for airplane travel … but can’t decide if it makes sense. Do you use it whenever you pack in your car? Any details would be greatly appreciated 🙂

      We just got the travel bag for our first airplane trip with baby and stroller and it worked great! We out the travel bag in the stroller basket so we could use the stroller to get to the gate and then put the stroller and the bassinet (or the toddler seat) in the travel bag and gate checked it. The bag has a handle and wheels so it’s easy to drag down to the plane! The other great thing is that as long as you register both your stroller and bag with UppaBaby if there is any damage to the stroller during your flight while in the bag UpoaBaby will warranty it! Total peace of mind for us:)

      • Shannon Pulsifer says:

        Great suggestion!! And thank you! Will be registering it tonight! It’s too expensive to have anything happen to it and hot have it covered! Seriously, like a car! haha. Have a great weekend!

    • Shannon Pulsifer says:

      We are planning on using it for all of our air travel these next few months. We also use it when we go on longer car rides so that it is easier to pack. I have a girlfriend who does the same and she swears by it. Also, I have heard that when you register your stroller and the bag, if anything happens to it via air travel it will be covered under the uppababy warranty. Hope that helps!

  3. We love our vista — my husband was skeptical about the initial investment but even after using it this last month (my how time flies, how is my lil peanut a month already?!) he can’t stop singing its praises. I personally love that it accommodates up to three kiddos so when we expand our family the stroller will grow with us!

    • Shannon Pulsifer says:

      It really is the best!! I love it too! And it made traveling so much easier! And congrats on your new little peanut!! Time flies and it just gets better!
