Kolcraft MLB Chicago Cubs Umbrella Stroller ~ Review

Posted by Jenna | Wednesday, February 27, 2013



Although it's still a bit cold to go for many stroller rides outside, we do find ourselves on the go a lot shopping, etc this time of year. Kaelyn and Kaden are getting to an age where they enjoy walking many of the places we go. Caysen however, is still too young to keep up and needs to ride in a stroller most places. With all of the other things we have to lug around with us, a stroller is not something we want taking up a lot of room. We need something easy to use and compact. That's why I was thrilled to learn that one of my favorite companies has partnered with MLB and added a great line of baby gear items!

For those who read here often, you know I'm a huge fan of Kolcraft and their high quality baby gear.
With everything from strollers to cribs, mattresses and more...it's a great place for parents to shop! Kolcraft began in 1946 when Leo Koltun made playpen pads out of cotton batting and oilcloth covers for post World War II babies. Over the years the company has grown and expanded to include a variety of products that help make the lives of parents with little ones easier! Known for their innovative and high quality baby products, as well as service that can't be beat....it's no wonder parents continue to turn to them time and time again.

We have owned several products from Kolcraft over the years, and are always impressed with the quality and user-friendly design of the products they offer. That's why I was excited to learn more about the launch of their new MLB line of products: strollers, step stools and potty rings.
With family appeal and a large base of avid fans, Major League Baseball juvenile products allow parents to share the allegiance to their favorite team with their children. Kolcraft now offers these baby gear items bearing the logos of the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox, New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies, San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers. Additional teams will be added each season too!

I was thrilled to learn we were going to have the opportunity to review one of the new MLB Umbrella Strollers. We were sent the Chicago Cubs Umbrella Stroller.

Features/Benefits:
  • Lightweight at just 7 lbs
  • Folded size: 42" X 7.3" X 8"
  • Open size: 13.8” x 16.5” x 32”
  • 35 lbs. maximum child weight
  • Chicago Cubs logo on the seat
  • Official MLB licensed product
  • Canopy adjusts to block the sun
  • Easy to open and fold
  • Front swivel wheels
  • 3-point safety harness
  • Footrest for easy child access 
As I said, we had been looking for a simple, good quality stroller for our quick trips to the mall and soon, our walks outside. This Official MLB stroller is perfect for those quick trips and outings, which is why I was super excited when it arrived.

Out of the box I was thrilled that there was hardly any assembly at all! It came ready to go other than the canopy which took less than a minute to hook onto the stroller. As a busy mom I appreciate when there isn't much assembly required...as I don't have a lot of time trying to figure things like that out. In just a matter of minutes I had the stroller ready to go!
All set up, this stroller definitely turns heads. I love the uniqueness of the MLB logo and the fact that fans can choose their team and stroll around with team pride! The fabric is a lot of fun, not to mention good quality. I can see it holding up well to any spills that may (or will!) happen! YAY!

Safety is also a concern whenever it comes to baby items, so I appreciate the 3 point harness which adjusts to fit all three of my kids so they are safely positioned in the stroller when it's moving. It has a max weight of 35lbs, so Kaelyn will not be able to ride in much longer - but Kaden and Caysen still have many years to enjoy it!
I love that it includes an adjustable canopy as well! When we're out this summer, I know this will be nice to shade the kids from the sun. It folds down easily to, when not needed.
In the times we've used it so far, we've found this stroller to be extremely convenient. At just 7 lbs and a folded size of 42" X 7.3" X 8", this is the easiest and perfect stroller to grab and put in the back of the car when we're running errands. It's also extremely easy to fold and unfold!
With an open size of 13.8” x 16.5” x 32” it's easy to take with us, even in places like the mall where we run into some tight spaces. The size and front swivel wheels make it easy to maneuver everywhere we go.

Oh, and Caysen sure enjoys it too!
There isn't any storage basket, but still a great stroller for simple outings and trips. It's one I know we'll use a lot in the coming months and years! I would definitely recommend checking them out at Kolcraft.com and supporting your favorite team!

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout
    of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    * Go through customer testimonials on tanning lotion websites, and ask others for their feedback, for
    instance, on how effective Sun Labs products are.
    Computer equipment is mainly reduced in price when there is a
    sale of the equipment. Sun lab Inc is one of the many companies that
    have come out with tanning solutions for the
    general public.
