Q:I live in a small town in Alaska. Will this work on gravel for summer and ice for winter? We don’t have sidewalks here.

A:

It will definitely work on gravel, it’s a pretty smooth ride. I honestly have no idea about the ice though. I don’t know if it’ll have traction or anything. I’m sorry, we don’t have that in Las Vegas 🙂

Q:I am 5′ tall, is this going to be a comfortable height for me to maneuver?

A:

I’m 5’7″ so I’m not too sure, but I don’t feel like it’s a tall stroller. I love it.

Q:Hi! How is the stroller delievered? In a box and ready to use? Or we have to set it up before using?

A:

I bought my double online and all I had to put on was the back wheels which just pop on.

Q:How tall is the handle bar? is it adjustable?

A:

It is not adjustable, and not sure exactly how tall. But I am 5’6″, my husband is 5’11”, and my father in law is 6’3″. We can all use it completely comfortably. Great stroller!

Q:What’s up with the bad reviews elsewhere? Lots on Target complaining about the front wheel wobbling & the stroller being hard to fold. Any thoughts?

A:

The stroller is SUPER easy to fold. The well can be locked into place or free turning. I have not had any issues with wobbling. Not sure what they are referencing there. We have taken it to places where you walk around for hours and have had no issues. It is very easy to push also.

Q:is the child tray removable?

A:

Yes! It unhooks so you can lift it up, and take it off completely.

Q:Is this jogger compatible with any car seat?

A:

No

Q:Does the canopy open any further than what is pictured? Or can it be pulled forward?

A:

that is the full length but can be pulled forward.

Q:Does this stroller seat recline for infant use?

A:

The back does recline, but it does not go flat. I think it’s recommended for 3+ months. I would not put a baby under that age in there, and it works best for 6 mos and older. The back piece is just straight, so I added in a head cushion from a car seat that I wasn’t using to give it more cushion when my little one fell asleep in it (and it helped out in that 4-5 month age). I really like the stroller; it pushes great through grass or trails. Side note – we had a Graco infant seat that did not latch into the stroller, but I occasionally still would set it in if we were just standing around…

Side note – we had a Graco infant seat that did not latch into the stroller, but I occasionally still would set it in if we were just standing around at a park while the big kids played. You could kind if rig the straps to hold it in, but not safe for anything but a very smooth, short ride!

Q:Does this work good on snow and sand (beach), thanks!

A:

I live in upstate New York and can say with complete confidence that this does wonderful in the snow! I can’t answer about the beach, I’m guessing it depends on how deep the sand is..

Q:does the front tire need to be removed to fold up?

A:

No but it is a large stroller when folded

Q:does the front wheel wobble like many other reviews say elsewhere?

A:

It does wobble, but when you lock the front wheel in place for jogging, it does not wobble. We just keep it locked all the time for this reason.

Q:I jog and have turns on my route, if the wheel is locked how do you make turns?

A:

If you don’t lock the front wheel you can still jog straight with it and make good turns too the swivel is excellent on it.

Q:How easy/difficult is it to add air to the front tire?

A:

My husband is able to easily do it but we have an adapter for our bikes that we use.

Q:can this stroller’s seating go in a complete upright position?

A:

Yes it can. This is an awesome stroller. Super easy to assemble (no tools needed), easy to fold, and lightweight. For the price you can’t go wrong.

Q:Does this stroller adjust so the seat can sit more upright, or is it locked in a reclining position?

A:

It adjusts with a drawstring.

Q:I would be using this for neighborhood walks and shopping, is it comfortable for a sleeping 2yr old?

A:

My daughter had no problem sleeping in it.

Q:does it come with the car seat?

A:

I think all baby trend car seats are made to fit with this stroller. However , I have a graco sungride 35 , and it works just fine .

Q:Does Safety 1st infant car seat work with Baby Trend stroller?

A:

Si

Q:Does it come with rain covers? If not how much is it please?

A:

It doesn’t come with anything but the canopy.
You can search for rain covers that are compatible to find a price. 🙂

Q:Can you use this stroller with an infant WITHOUT an infant carseat?

A:

Yes. It’s got a regular seat. In fact, I know you can put an infant car seat in it (it’s got some attachments for one) but have no idea how you would go about doing it that way.

Q:What is difference between the vanguard and the phantom jogger?

A:

I don’t have the Phantom jogger so I’m not positive but it looks like just the colors are different.

Q:How easily does it fold down? I wanted to buy this as my only stroller. Would it be a nuisance taking in and out of the car? How heavy is it?

A:

It does have large wheels so it all depends on how big your trunk is. It folds in half. It’s easy to put in and out of the trunk. I don’t think it’s heavy. I’m not a strong person and I don’t have any issues with it.

Q:Does this stroller have a “parking” brake (so that it doesn’t roll away when you are stopped/standing still)?

A:

Yes…it does hv a parking brake.

Q:Is the stroller easy to collapse and open?

A:

Yes, it’s so easy! I didn’t figure it out at first, but now I feel a little silly about it. You just put your fingers through the two lever things on the side of the handle bar and pull up. It pops open with no problem and is just as easy to fold up

Q:Do the tires need to be inflated regularly? or at first?

A:

When I got mine two tires were flat. We put air in all three just to be safe and they have stayed inflated since. I have had it for about 2 months now.

Q:how tall are the handle bars?

A:

I haven’t measured the height but I can tell you that one of the reasons I love this stroller is because of the handlebars. I’m 5’7″ and my husband is 6’2″ and we are both very comfortable while using it. I hate strollers that make me bend over to push them. I now have two grandchildren and plan to get the same model in the double-stroller. 🙂

Q:Does this stroller have brakes – specifically a parking brake?

A:

There’s brakes on the back wheels

Q:I ran over my stroller and destroyed a wheel, anyway to buy a replacement?

A:

I think if you contact baby trend they will help you! I had a tire issue and they were great!!!!

Q:How are the cup holders? Will they fit an average coffee travel cup? The stroller I have now doesn’t fit travel cups very well and my coffee spills!!

A:

Yep! Travel cups up to your basic 20oz plastic cup. No coffee would be a deal breaker for me 🙂

Q:Is there any bassinet that is compatible with this stroller?

A:

If your asking about a car seat I believe the baby trend ones are compatible. I did use my chicco keyfit 30 seat in it and it works and is safe. It has a locking device for a infant carrier but the lock only works with the baby trend seats.

Q:Is it full reclinable so that it can be used by a newborn?

A:

Yep. Sure can.

Q:Will this work on the beach in the soft sand?

A:

I don’t think this would work well in very soft sand…it would work on loosely packed sand though, the type that is usually found a bit closer to the water.

Q:will a baby trend ez flex-loc car seat fit this stroller?

A:

From what I understand all of the baby trend car seats will fit this stroller. We havent tried it because we bought it after our daughter was out of an infant seat however the cup holders on the stroller look the same as they did on our older system that would accept an infant seat.

Q:Does the wheel need to be locked when jogging with this stroller?

A:

Yes otherwise it will wobble out of control. It can only be unlocked when walking.

Q:I am still not sure if this works for the baby trend flex loc car seat. Some say yes, some say no, and some are answering without a clue?

A:

We have this jogger and a baby trend flex lock seat. It works great. The white locking teeth of the carseat snap into slots on the tray. There are small plastic tabs on the frame that the front portion of the seat sit on, and then an elastic strap that slips into the seatbelt slot on the seat. They are designed to work together.

Q:My son is almost 4. I don’t have his height offhand, but he wears a size 5T. Think he’ll fit?

A:

My daughter’s in a 4t now and she fits fine.

Q:Approximately how much space does this take up in the car trunk?

A:

2.5 x 2.5

Q:Good morning. I would like to know the dimensions of the product box and weight to estimate the shipping to another country? thank you

A:

maybe 12-18″ x 12-18″ x 36″ or maybe a little more. Was a pretty big box. I took this answer from a similar question I had asked about the box.
Regis

Q:at what age/weight of child could this stroller be used?

A:

I bought this stroller for my grandson’s 1st birthday. My daughter loves it. I think it could be used for an infant because it lies back.

Q:How big is the box it comes in. Is it one of this flat but very wide boxes, or more of the ones that look like a column?

A:

Not flat, no. If I remember correctly, it’s like maybe 12-18″ x 12-18″ x 36″ or maybe a little more. Was a pretty big box.

Q:How do I know if my carseat will fit in this stroller?

A:

any baby trend infant carrier should fit.

Q:I’m 6 foot tall, wanting to jog with 2 year old. Will the handle be at a decent height? Will tires interrupt my stride?

A:

I’m only 5’4 so it’s hard for me to say if it will work for you. It does come up about halfway between my waist and chest. I would check the product info for measurements. Mine came with flat tires and I have not had a chance to put air in them yet, so I can’t help you with it’s performance. I’m sorry.

Q:I have a 2yo, we take daily walks on pavement but on wknds we have 5k runs/jogs or on trails in the woods. Will this stroller hold up?

A:

I use this stroller daily and routinely do 4 – 6 miles per jog/run with my 4 year old. It has held up nicely over the last 4 weeks.

Q:does this stroller work with the baby trend flex loc car seat? Like a travel system?

A:

“Baby Trend car seats fit any Baby Trend strollers/joggers that accommodate a car seat up to 30 lbs.” Pulled directly from Baby Trend website.

Q:Looking for a stroller to take to Disneyland. Does this fit taller kids well? How tall is it from seat to top of backrest?

A:

I think you should be able to fit a taller child, assuming the child is less than 5-7 years. If you’re taking the stroller with you everywhere, note that the size of the overall stroller is pretty large (which is not a bad deal), because of the large wheels, compared to regular strollers, but definitely not larger than most jogging strollers. The stroller does seem strong, robust.

Q:Will I have to buy a carseat adapter for this?

A:

The box says it will take any baby trend car seat so probably not unless you have a different brand of car seat. You’ll see when you set it up that there are flat indents in the cup holders for the infant seat to click in to

Q:Can you use other car seat brands with this by using an adapter?

A:

Possibly but we haven’t tried that.

Q:how much can a child weigh for this

A:

The manufacturer recommends not exceeding 50 pounds.
