UPPAbaby Vista 2017 Stroller Review

UPPAbaby Vista 2017 Stroller Review

UPPAbaby Vista is one of the popular strollers in today’s market. Parents love its capability to grow with the family from birth to toddler years and the ability to also grow as your family grows by adding more children and turning from a single stroller to a double stroller. It goes from bassinet mode to a travel system mode to a single stroller mode and finally to a double mode with an addition of a second seat. You can even add a stroller board for an older child! You will never need another stroller.
In 2015 the stroller was updated, many features including the second seat, frame, basket size, fold, and a bassinet.
In 2017 there have been only a few minor updates and new colors. The frame is a little narrower now, which is great when you are on the go and need to get threw smaller areas. The wheels are solid polyurethane, the sunshade is made out of better fabric and locks in place when you slide it down, and there is also an option of genuine leather handle bar and genuine leather bumper bar. Because of all the little tweaks, the weight went down from 27.5 lbs to 26 lbs. This is great for us moms.  The 2017 version also features a roomy reversible seat, huge canopy with a pop-out  SPF 50+ sunvisor, all-terrain tires, huge basket, adjustable handle bar, adjustable leg rest, intuitive one-step fold, deep one-hand recline, and all-wheel suspension.
It’s a no brainer the UPPAbaby Vista is the stroller that will fit every and any family. It is the most sensible stroller that can be useful to an infant as well as a toddler. It has the perfect bassinet which you wouldn’t have to worry about what to do with your infant and you can pair it with the UPPAbaby MESA car seat.
UPPAbaby Vista come in multiple colors and retails about $839 depending on the color you select. It includes the bassinet, bumper bar, rain cover, bug cover and bassinet bug cover. 

Some of the features that I like about the UPPAbaby  strollers are

  • the large canopy which has a SPF 50+ pop-out sunvisor.
  • The large peekaboo window made out of dark mesh with a magnetic closure. The mesh window provides shade and a better air circulation.
  • It has an adjustable handle bar. Which is perfect for tall and short couples and etc who need to use the stroller. 
  • UPPAbaby also has a huge basket, which is my favorite part of the stroller. This means no caring of heavy bags and ets. The basket can hold up to 30 lbs!

Matching with your little girl

Well, not sure if everyone knows yet but I for sure look super pregnant, I will be having a baby girl in November. Well….. I am totally not the girly type… I’m going to need a lot of help trying to figure out how to dress my baby girl. I found some really cute shirts that I can wear that will match and it’s not super girlie which I like…
