I was beyond excited when I found out that I was going to have a chance to try out Baby Cargo’s Series 200 stroller and their Georgi Bag. My hubby and I have been looking for a good lightweight stroller for traveling. We wanted something well made, easy to fold and lightweight, but did not want to shell out $300 for an umbrella stroller. The Baby Cargo Series 200 Stroller checked off every single requirement on our list and then some. I seriously LOVE this stroller.
First of all, this stroller is gorgeous. The colors are rich and stylish. I chose the Ocean/Stone color and just love it. The material is soft but durable and does not feel cheap or plastic-y.
For a small stroller, there is ample storage space. The people at Baby Cargo added great little pockets all over the place to make it easy to store your keys, pacifiers and snacks.
The footrest is a breeze to adjust. I can put it up for the little guy and then quickly put it down for my older kiddo. What also amazed me about this umbrella stroller is that is reclines… a lot! Baby Cargo says that the stroller can be used from “Birth & Up” and the deep recline feature helps the kiddos to lay out while napping.
The Series 200 also comes with a rain cover. I love it when a company gives you the accessories that you need without making you pay extra for them. The rain cover fits perfectly and it is super compact making storage very convenient.
The foot brakes are easy to use and I can even push them on and off while in flip flops. There are locks on the front wheels in case you are going to be maneuvering over rougher pavement, but this is by no means an all-terrain stroller (nor is it meant to be). I do feel like it pushes better than many other lightweight strollers. My hubby loaded it up with our 40lb. 3 1/2 year old and gave it the “speed test” and loved how maneuverable it is. He had no problems taking sharp corners at speeds that made this momma scared to watch.
My favorite things about this stroller is how easy it folds. It automatically latches when you close it. Genius! Every stroller should do this. Carrying it is a cinch with the built-in shoulder strap and handle.
The kiddos love this stroller. My 3 1/2 year old asks for a ride in it every night from the bath to his bedroom… silly boy thinks it is funny and I love it because it means I don’t have to try to carry him. Our little 4 month old loves the stroller too. He can be super fussy and as soon as he gets in the stroller he starts laughing. He is at that in-between age where he doesn’t like to be put down and still isn’t mobile, so having the stroller is a lifesaver! I think it is hilarious that we are using the stroller in the house so much, but hey, that is what is working for us ;)
My only complaint about the stroller is the puzzle seat belt latch. You have to fit the top two pieces together before you can lock it in. If you have a child that hates being strapped into things, it might be a little bit harder to get him into the stroller without a struggle at first until you get the hang of it.
Overall, I really adore this stroller and use it every day.
Along with the stroller, I received Baby Cargo’s Georgi Stroller Bag. Once again, I think Baby Cargo hit a home run. This stroller bag is very cool looking and slides right over the handles of the stroller. I can also use it with my jogging stroller because it has attachment snaps for strollers with one handle. The Ocean/Wave color I chose goes great with my stroller. I love that they look so perfect together.
Another testament to the bag and the stroller is that when I have the Georgi Bag fully loaded, the Series 200 is still super stable and does not tip backwards.
The Georgi Bag has some great features:
- Beautiful lightweight fabric, brass details & stylishly zippered seams
- Universal Handle Hooks
- Brass grommet rings for umbrella strollers
- Attachment snaps for strollers with one handle
- Detachable/adjustable shoulder strap
- 2-side bottle pockets
- 7 interior pockets (1 lipstick, 1 wallet, 1 phone, 1 sunglass, 2 diaper pockets and 1 changing pad pocket)
- 5 exterior pockets (2 side bottle pockets, 1 zippered center front pocket, 2 front pockets)
- Zip closure to secure items
Don’t you just love it? If you said yes, you are in luck because Baby Cargo is giving one Pin-n-Tell reader a Georgi Stroller Bag in either Chile/Tangerine or Ocean/Wave!
