Summertime is here and that means more opportunities to get out 'n about with your little ones!  One thing that can make those outings much more convenient and enjoyable is having a good stroller to hold the kiddos and all the stuff that goes everywhere along with them.   

However, choosing a stroller to best fit the needs of your family and child can be very confusing.  There are SO many choices and because strollers are an investment, you don't want to buy one only to wish that you had gotten a different one later on.  

That's why Safety 1st exists.  Safety 1st is driven by a single-minded focus of making the world a safer and happier place for our little ones to grow up in.  They are committed to child-safety, innovation, quality and value.  Safety 1st offers many great products for families including car seats, bouncers, strollers and bassinets just to name a few.  

I had the opportunity to try out the AeroLite LX Stroller by Safety 1st, so I wanted to share with you how it went.  But before I begin my review, I wanted to share some of the tips that Julie Vallese, Consumer Safety Expert for Safety 1st has put together to help readers find the stroller that best fits their lifestyle.

Here are Julie's tips:
Consider Your Lifestyle
  1. I like to think of stroller categories like cars.  For example, if you have a newborn, a travel system with an infant carrier is the SUV of strollers.  This is the stroller that you can use from infant until the child is a few years old. 
  2. If you travel often or are always on the go you will want the compact version.  An umbrella stroller is great for these parents.  Umbrella strollers are generally less expensive, lightweight and fold up easily.
  3. The luxury models are sleek, stylish and easy to maneuver with plusher padding on the seat.
  • Shop Smart

  1. After you have found the stroller for your lifestyle, shop smart.  Test it out and make sure you feel comfortable pushing it.  If one parent is much taller than the other consider a model with an adjustable handle height.
  • Size Matters

  1. Another important tip: make sure you measure the trunk of your car. There’s no point in purchasing a stroller only to find out later it won’t fit. 
So now that you've considered the key issues in buying a stroller, I'd like to tell you about my experience with the AeroLite LX Stroller by Safety 1st.

As the name suggests, the AeroLite Stroller is very light in weight, making it easy to lift in and out of a vehicle.  I don't have a ton of muscle to work with myself, but even I could easily lift the stroller with one hand.  It felt just a smidge heavier than an umbrella stroller, which makes it much lighter than most full-size strollers on the market.  

I instantly noticed that the AeroLite LX came equipped with some nice features.  The large canopy sunshade with a velcro window for visibility of the child.

Across the handlebars is a plastic two-drink tray and a convenient pouch with a velcro top for storing items like a cell phone, keys, snacks, etc.  I especially liked the velcro top idea.  This feature kept my keys and phone from bouncing around while the stroller was moving and it also worked as a safe place to store items I preferred to be out of sight, yet easily accessible as we played at the park.  

The basket beneath the seat is HUGE!  It is also dropped down low enough from the seat that it is very easy to get things in and out of.  Since I live within walking distance of a few grocery stores it was very helpful to have such a large basket to fit my groceries in.  

The seat reclines by using an adjustable strap in the back of the stroller.  It's an easy way to adjust the seat.   

I have mixed feelings about the snack tray.  On one hand I love how there's drink holder right in front of my child.  The snack tray was easy for him to reach and if it wasn't time for snacks, the tray made a great toy holder.  However, the cup holder makes for a tight squeeze into the seat.  Since my child wears cloth diapers which are more bulky than disposable diapers, the drink holder would press right up against his diaper. (This did not happen when he wore disposables.)  However, the snack tray did keep him from sliding down in the seat, which was a plus.  So if your child wears cloth diapers you will want to make sure your child has enough room in the seat.  

My other complaint about the snack tray is that since it doesn't come off of the stroller, but instead hinges at one side, if I wanted to take my child out of the stroller with the snack tray still in tact (for example if the tray was covered in snacks), I had to anchor the stroller with one foot and then awkwardly pull him up and out of the stroller.  Otherwise I'd have to clear off the snack tray or send the snacks sailing.

The five-point harness worked great for keeping my child safely strapped in and it was easy to use. 

The stroller was very easy to open and fold back up using the "Slide & Squeeze" lever and a hook to lock the stroller into the folded up position.

Sometimes the AeroLite LX Stroller would pull one way or another with the front wheels when the ground was not exactly even, making it a challenge to steer with one hand at times.  Since I'm often multitasking, steering with one hand is a must for me.   

Overall, I think this stroller is a great value.  The AeroLite LX Stroller is a full-size stroller with lots of great features.  It is lightweight, sleek and comes with some great bells and whistles that make it fun and convenient to use.  It's sturdier than an umbrella stroller, but lighter and easier to push than many other full-size strollers.  A great bang for your buck!

    I actually provided image from the burial container on my apple iphone, the person getting that on the iphone 3gs experienced the actual message “missing plug-in”, with out graphic was connected. Just what connect is essential, and it is the item required own telephone, or maybe could it be something must have recently been dispatched with the picture? | |
