PishPoshBaby.Com – Baby Jogger City Versa Review and Giveaway







2 years ago shortly after I had my third child I realized that there was no way I was going to get around town and do all the things I needed to do unless I had a double stroller. At the time I had a 4 year old, 2 year old and a newborn, a bad back & other medical problems due to a rough pregnancy. I scoffed at the thought of my husband bringing home another flimsy, plastic, big-box store stroller that you couldn’t clean properly, couldn’t fit easily through a door, and was probably only going to last a year due to my children being so large. After many months of polling other moms, searching online & offline I found what I wanted; A Baby Jogger City Mini GT double stroller. It was pricey, I won’t deny that, but it has been the best investment I ever made as far as parenting products go. In my 6 years of being a mother I have gotten more use out of that stroller than anything else I own.  Thus began my love for Baby Jogger strollers.



This year my oldest son started 1st grade & my middle son is starting Pre-K in just a few weeks!  Although I love our City Mini GT Double stroller I am not going to stroll the boy through the hallways of his new school at almost age 4! Oh no, he’s big enough to walk everywhere now.


Making the Switch from Double to Single Stroller

I contemplated what to do because I just wasn’t feeling our single stroller anymore. When I hooked up with Pishposhbaby.com for a chance to check out the Baby Jogger City Versa stroller I was ecstatic because I knew it was going to be a great stroller and it would be perfect for my 3rd child, Silje, who is now 2 years old herself. I still walk my oldest to school and it’s more than 2 miles each day. My daughter simply can’t walk that far yet.


We’ve been using the 2013 City Versa for a couple of weeks now and we love it. I’m not going to lie, I’m still very fond of the City Mini GT strollers but the Versa is just as awesome. Before you read any further let’s get something straight. Although Baby Jogger does make jogging strollers, the City Versa is not intended for jogging.  Let me tell you a little about it but you enter to win your very own!



It literally took me about 5 minutes to put the City Versa together out of the box with no help (I can’t stand to put products together). The instructions are very clear & concise.


Seat Features

Immediately I noticed that the seat of the Versa can be removed so that baby can face towards you, or away from you! It’s so easy to remove the seat. Just a simple click of 2 buttons on the sides.  The seat can also recline or sit up.


As well as being able to reverse the seat you have the ability to lengthen or shorten the foot well. The little bar you see at the bottom of the seat where your child’s feet sit. Although Silje just turned 2 she was born almost 12lbs and she is currently 38lbs and in size 3-4 clothing. She was very comfortable with the foot well in the shorter position but I went ahead and pulled it down anyway. It was so simple, it simply slides down.


You can see Silje here on the left.  On the right is my 6 year old son Vincent who is in the 95th percentile for height.  He can easily put his feet up on the foot well and ride comfortably believe it or not. He weighs 48lbs and the City Versa amazingly holds up to 50lbs! So this gives you an idea of how long you can use this stroller if you really want/need to.

The city versa has a canopy with  UV 50+ along with two “peek-a-boo” windows that secure with magnets, not velcro! so you can quietly check on your child without the fear of waking them. It can also be adjusted to multiple positions and the canopy itself is of high quality fabric, it’s not flimsy at all.

Handlebar & Brake


The handlebar is adjustable so it can accommodate people of different heights.  Here you will see my children’s father who is 6ft. 3. He’s using the stroller handlebar in it’s original position with no problem. (Sorry not the greatest of photos as they were all racing each other home from school.)  He has no problem pushing this stroller. In the past our other strollers have had handles so low that he’d have to slouch in order to push it and there was no adjusting them, you get what you get, which is no fun at all and can cause quite the back ache.


The brake for the stroller is located right near the edge of the handlebar & you simply pull it up or down. Believe it or not it took me 1 year to locate the break on my double because I was so used to only having brakes on the wheels of my old strollers (and I don’t like to read instructions).  This brake it much easier to deal with!



The wheels on Baby Jogger strollers, I have to tell you, are a lot better than your average stroller. Although the City Versa does not have the more rugged set of wheels I’ve noticed they still work better than our strollers we had in the past. You can set the 8” lightweight front wheels to swivel or lock for long distance strolling. It even has all-wheel suspension. 


No matter which way you have the seat facing the folding and storage of the City Versa is very easy. You can even do it one-handed after a little practice.  It folds down very nicely & can fit in the trunk of a small car with no problem.





The great thing about Baby Jogger strollers is that they are really made to be flexible to your needs. Because the City Versa seat is removable you can install a pram right onto it for even the littlest of newborns, or install your car seat if you like. When baby get’s older and starts using the regular seat you may want to install a belly bar if that’s what you’re used to. We choose not to and the kids have done just fine. There’s also a parent console (to store your things) if you want to add that on, foot muffs, weather shields! Or even heavier duty wheels. Your options are not limited.


The Verdict

After 6 long years of reviewing baby and parenting products there are only a few brands that I stick by no matter what. Baby Jogger is one of those. Their strollers are really top of the line. They’re solid construction, made with steel, heavy duty plastics that are not flimsy in any way what-so-ever, and their fabrics are superior to other strollers out on the market. They’re easy to clean, they’re durable, and they’re stylish as well. I absolutely adore Baby Jogger strollers, and the City Versa goes on the list of products that I will continue to recommend to new moms on a regular basis.

  1. I would like to win a jog stroller so I can get back to running. I want to do color run followed by getting back into shape so I can get back to doing triathlon again. Miss it! But it’s hard to get back to working out because I have little one and stroller I have is more for walks instead of running, but I don’t trust a single big wheel in front stroller (consumer reports deemed unsafe). So 4 wheel running stroller would be great for us. Also it looks smaller then stroller we have this fit better in my car.

  2. I would love to get this for my cousin who just recently had a baby. She would absolutely love this

  3. I would love to win this because my stroller from my older son is big, cumbersome, and has see better days! My mom will also be using it a lot and this would be much easier for her to manage, though we aren’t able to purchase a new one. I’ve searched for used ones, but no luck. This stroller looks fantastic! (I saw a review of it on a blog and have wanted one ever since!)

  4. It’s a beautiful stroller. First time mom living with another baby in the home as well. We could both use it 🙂

  5. 1. Why you’d like to win this stroller

    think me sister needs one soon..thanks

  6. i love that it looks awesome and durable and it would be one you can use for a long time!

  7. is a great stroller

  8. I would be so grateful to win this stroller! I love that my daughter would be able to see me, she can never get comfortable in a regular stroller because she’s always twisting her neck to try to look up at me through the window. I’ve always wanted to try baby jogger products but I can’t afford it. My daughter is our first little one and we plan on having more so I need baby gear that will hold up for a few more babies 🙂 This is an awesome thing you’re doing and whoever wins this is going to be such a lucky mommy 🙂

  9. My husband is a runner. Hoping this will get him and the little one out of the house for his long runs every few days to burn a little energy and get fresh air.

  10. I would love to win this stroller so I can start leading a more active lifestyle with my 16-month old son. We already walk but my stroller is very large and hard to manage walking with my dog and pushing our huge stroller. Id love to start jogging and I think this stroller would be perfect for us! I’ve wanted to register for a 5K and actually RUN it, and this stroller would definitely come in handy! Thank you and congratulations to whomever wins!!

  11. I would like to use this for our morning jogs. The one I have doesn’t work well during speed walks/jogs.

  12. We are always on the go…and as much as our toddler LOVES to walk, sometimes she just can’t keep up. Unfortunately, she’s rather tall and there aren’t many strollers that can accomodate her height…other than Baby Jogger brand. It would be amazing to have a stroller, that’s canopy doesn’t rub the top of her head…plus, quality so that we can pass it down!!!

  13. I’d love to win this stroller to be able to go on more walks with my son. The stroller we have is harder to bring on long walks which I need to start doing to help with my back pains

  14. Code: fall 🙂

    I’d really love to win this for our walks around the neighborhood

  15. I think this stroller would be a great because our stroller is very good when we go out and run. We have looked in to strollers and this one was in my top 5 list

  16. I want to win a stroller so that I have something to give a girl in need. She will be due soon and needs all the help she can get. I couldn’t think of a better gift for her to receive for her baby. I hope to hear from you all soon. Please consider me for this contest it would be a blessing.

  17. I would love to win this stroller!! I am currently pregnant with my fourth child and I have no stroller at all yet! My oldest is six years old. We live close enough to the school for no buses but far away where I can’t let him walk alone to and from school just yet. My four year old, 2 year old, and soon to be newborn coming February will be walking him to and from school everyday! It would mean the world to me and my husband if you could win this amazing stroller:)

  18. If I was to win this it would be for my daughter whom is six months old.

  19. The stroller that I currently have is extremely lame and has these cheap wheels that barely turn, so it’s very frustrating to use it. I could definitely use an upgrade, and this stroller looks amazing!

  20. I am in love with the features of this stroller. I believe I’d bea great candidate to win because as a first time Mon this will give me the extra motivationi need to go for walks and exercise with the new baby!

  21. I would really like to one of these strollers for my 7 month old. He loves to rake walks and I love to get out and exercise with him as well, therefore this stroller would be great with all the amenities it includes!

  22. I would love to win this stroller for my friend, whose baby shower is in November! 🙂

  23. I would love to win this for my grandson. It is lightweight which is #1 on my list.

  24. I am a first time mom as well as a fitness mom and I’ve tried several joggers and haven’t been able to find one that meet my needs. I love the fact that this stroller is quick to assemble, it folds up to a decent size, the style, how easy it is to use the breaks, and the two options of which way to face your child. I think this stroller will make my runs more enjoyable and my child will be more comfortable in it.

  25. baby due 12/17 and my other som turns one on 10/28. I def need a double stroller and this one looks perfect! I would love to win and I’ve never won anything ever!

  26. I would love to win this stroller so I can get out more with my little guy, and get my pre-baby body back!! 🙂

  27. I need a stroller because the one I have was given to me and is falling apart.

  28. I would love to win this stroller for the same reasons as you wanted one. I had a 3 year old son and a 2 month old son. The stroller we had for my oldest was used and handed down so it’s outdated and is just a mess overall.

  29. I would love to win this for my sister who just found out she was pregnant with her first child! I will be an aunt and I am very excited! I know she would love this!

  30. It would make a great baby shower gift for my friends daughter.

  31. I’m due in January and could really use this awesome stroller.

  32. we would love to win this stroller! Mine broke a few weeks ago and I love taking my ten moth old boy places. Something like this would be perfect for us!

  33. I would like to win this as I am an active person and plan to continue to be active when my first grandchild comes along in January. Perfect stroller for this grandma.

  34. I would absolutely love one of these for my baby boy I can not afford one and we are using a 20 dollar stroller and I can’t take him jogging with me because of the stroller would absolutely love one fingers crossed…

  35. Great for my best friend

  36. The only stroller that I currently own for my son is a umbrella stroller which is uncomfortable and offers little support for his little body. I would love to win this so that I am sure that he is comfortable and will have all of the support that he needs.


  37. I would love to win this stroller so I can work on getting back in shape and still spend time with the baby!

  38. I need new becouse I a stroller strive group ever Friday it would by good show to group of moms

  39. I would love to win this stroller to help get back in shape. It looks so easy to set up and use. Just what I’ve been looking for!

  40. Winning this awesome stroller would be quite terrific. I am a soon to be first time mother and this would be a great item to win.

  41. I would love to win this stroller because I am expecting our second child (the first is now two) and i am a mother in college. I am dual enrolled and fulltime at both schools and am expected to give birth by march 4th of 2015. My husband and i both work very hard but we still have money issues and cant afford to buy a new stroller (our old one is broken) so that we can take our babes on walks comfortably. Our two tear old loves to walk by himself or ride on daddy’s shoulders but we are concerned about the new baby and how we will be able to transport it on long walks. This stroller would take a giant load off of my mind for sure!

  42. I would preciate it so very much if I won this stroller because I am a stay at home mother of 2, but i also take care of other children from time to time and so that means I don’t get a lot of time to workout for myself. We have recently had the blessing of having a great park built right across the street from our house so I know that I would get the most use from this stroller! 🙂

  43. I would love to win this for my friend shes having her first baby. She likes to jog so this will be perfect for her

  45. This looks like it would allow me to stay fit after giving birth. I’ve always wanted a jogging stroller.

  46. I live in the city so a great compact easy to use stroller would be so helpful! My daughter is 14mo and we love to go different places like museums, parks, botanical gardens or hiking trails! So glad it’s FALL so we can be out even more now!

  47. I have a 6 month old and would LOVE to win such a great stroller.

  48. The reason I want to win this stroller… Because after reading your review, it was obvious i need this stroller! I love how the seat can flip both ways AND how flat it folds… Especially with the fact that I know it will LAST because it’s durable AND can hold up to 50lbs. I need this stroller!

  49. I would love to win this stroller! I have an 8 month old son that I stay at home with as well as babysit a 14 month old little girl. I love to take them to the park and do things, this would make my life SO MUCH EASIER!!! 🙂

  50. I have two girls, one is 6 months the other is 2. I have been trying to lose my baby weight. I work full time and after I pick my girls up I don’t want to spend a second without them. I have a back pack for the little one and a wagon for the big one, but that can get physically draining since the big one always wants to climb out and I end up playing chase while I have one on the back as well. One thing that I want my girls to grow up with is self confidence. I have promised myself I would never talk poorly about my self-image, I want them to be comfortable in their own skin. I want to set a good example of Healthy and Confident and teach them that they do not need to fit into a cookie cutter magazine cover to be beautiful. I would love this stroller so I can start jogging with them at an early age and I can start teaching them this lesson by living it while they are young.
