I researched every stroller there is out there I think, we even tested them at a local Buy Buy Baby (they have all the strollers out for you to try), and my husband and I agree that this was the best one for us. It’s definitely an investment, over $600, but it handles so well, rides smoothly and has a the largest undercarriage basket on the market. It is also great if you have a tall husband or are tall yourself. The handle is adjustable and can be extended for tall folks. The only negative side to the UppaBaby Vista is that it’s wide, so taking into a crowded store is not the best. Many people who like the Bugaboo end up buying the UppaBaby Vista, it’s comparable in many ways and over $300 less expensive.
We used the bassinet for Archer to sleep in at night or the first 3 months — it worked perfectly and we didn’t have to spend more money on buying one. You can buy a holder for the bassinet so you can place it next to your bead and rock it if needed.
What I also love about this stroller is you can take off the seat or the bassinet and clip in your car seat — it doesn’t lay on top of the stroller seat like many strollers. You need to buy the car seat adapter to snap in first. It’s very simple. Other strollers we looked at you had to screw in the car seat adapter and it would take 10+ minutes to do. This one took less than 5 seconds to snap in and out. I also like that the car seat ‘snaps’ into place, doesn’t lay on top of the stroller, much more secure.
Another benefit to the UppaBaby Vista is it can grow with your growing family! It can fit up to 3 kids — 2 seats and 1 standing skate board attachment.
The stroller seat itself reclines nicely to a laying position or can be more upright. When we’re out and about it’s perfect for him to take naps in, he seems very comfortable. Get the Snug Seat insert when your baby is still small, maybe 3-6 months. It’ll help keep their head and body secure.
Usually strollers don’t go on sale. Here’s a little secret on how we got over $200 off on this stroller. Sign up for Land of Nod emails or follow them on Facebook. They have 20% off ANYTHING coupons and you can us it on the UppaBaby Vista — most stores won’t allow it and they will!
