With our baby due in a super short 7 weeks (OMG!), we have enjoyed getting everything ready for her arrival. We just had our baby shower and received many generous presents for Baby Girl. I was given the opportunity to review the new GB Ellum stroller sold at Babies "R" Us. I look forward to trying out this stroller with our baby in September.
This stroller is available in two colors: Fuzion and Raspberry. I liked the Raspberry color a lot but wanted a more gender neutral stroller so I chose the Fuzion. This stroller retails for $219.99. It is exclusively sold at Babies "R" Us.
What I like about it is that it is quite lightweight. It is s compact stroller but has the features of a full-sized stroller. For our main stroller, we went with a larger one and this will be perfect for trips where we don't want to lug a huge stroller around. Although I have not used this stroller yet with a baby, I have tried it out in store and loved how easy it was to move around.
It has an easy Kick 'n Lift fold so that it is ready to store away quickly. The seat reclines and has an adjustable foot rest. It also has an expandable air-flow canopy and stroller basket. One of my favorite features is that it is compatible with certain Graco and Chicco infant car seats. We have a Graco Snugride Click Connect car seat that should fit on this stroller making it versatile for infant to toddler.
Your child can fit into this stroller up to 50 lbs which is really nice. The stroller weighs 18.8 lbs which should not be too heavy to lift.
The employees at Babies "R" Us were helpful when I went there to purchase this stroller. They were able to tell me more about the stroller and help me out. I liked that I could try the stroller out in store to see how it works.
I love the look of this sleek black and red stroller. I plan to use this stroller often. From other moms, I was given a tip to get a stroller with one handlebar (as opposed to two) because it makes pushing the stroller with 1 hand much easier. I like that this features one handle. For trips to places such as the mall, this will be a great stroller so I don't have to have a huge bulky stroller at all times.
