What We Like
What We Don't Like
There are so many different factors to consider when buying a stroller. You’re looking for something that provides comfort to your baby, a high level of maneuverability, and enough features to take care of your needs when you’re taking a walk.
Simply put, the more versatile the stroller, the better your experience will be. The Baby Trend Expedition Stroller offers everything that you need. But does it live up to that promise? Let’s find out.
Baby Trend Expedition Jogger Review
Ideal for children below the age of five, this stroller combines comfort with a bevy of storage options. It’s a three-wheeled stroller, which also makes it ideal for joggers. The use of a swiveling front wheel makes it more maneuverable while helping it to deal with tough terrain. However, Baby Trend also account for those who want to stay on the straight and narrow with a useful lock for the front wheel.
Who is This Stroller For?
There are two sets of potential buyers who will find this stroller extremely interesting.
The first are active parents who want to use their walks with their children as an opportunity to grab some exercise. The three-wheel design of this stroller allows for jogging, as does its light weight. The big, bicycle-style wheels also offer a good combination of stability and steering, which makes you feel more in control as you jog.
Moreover, it will also appeal to those parents who like to carry everything they can out with them. It has space for you to store diapers, toys, and even your own valuables. There’s also a little table for your child, which only increases the storage options.
Unfortunately, it’s not the best choice for parents who are shopping on a budget. All of these little extras don’t come cheap and you may find that the stroller burns a hole in your bank account that you’re not prepared for.
It is a useful stroller for any parents who’ve struggled to wrestle a stroller flat in the past. It’s really easy to use and fold, though those who need portability will find that the big wheels present a problem.
Beyond the base stroller, this comes with a useful storage basket that protects the stroller when it’s not in use. It also comes with two trays, with one for your baby and one for you. The baby tray makes it ideal for meal times on the go.
Overview of Features
So, what makes this stroller stand out from all of the rest? Let’s take a look at the main features it has to offer.
The reclining seat is an excellent feature, as it allows you to keep your baby comfortable at all times. It really comes into its own during longer walks when your little one starts to get tired. Just pull the seat back a little and you have a small portable bed for that’s perfect for sleeping in.
The big and bulky bicycle tires make the stroller easy to steer and move around. They also offer some elevation, which makes the stroller a good choice for those at the taller end of the scale.
Unfortunately, as with any other bicycle tire, sharp objects can lead to punctures. They’re also not removable, which can make putting the stroller in a small trunk a nightmare. Finally, they have a habit of deflating quickly, which means you’re going to spend a lot of time pumping them back up.
Safety is also a key concern with strollers and Baby Trend has focused on this area. The stroller comes with an adjustable canopy, which you can use to shield your little one from the sun. Moreover, it has a five-point harness system, which keeps your baby secure while you’re jogging, and a tether strap so you never lose control of the stroller.
The stroller also allows you to fit a Baby Trend car seat, which allows you to walk with your baby facing you. This is ideal for little ones who demand a parent’s attention when they’re on walks. This feature does prevent access to the baby’s tray, and the car seat doesn’t provide a replacement.
How to Get the Most Out of It
While the Expedition Jogger has a lot to offer, there are a few things that it’s missing. The issue with the tires may cause problems for people who don’t want to deal with punctures or deflating tires every few weeks. If that’s an issue for you, it’s likely that a stroller with sturdier tires will suit your needs.
The J is for Jeep All-Terrain Stroller offers a good alternative because of the strength of its tires. The fact that you can remove its back tires also makes it a more portable option.
The Baby Trend Expedition Stroller does a lot of things very well. It’s fairly light and offers a ton of storage space. You can also turn it into a travel system thanks to the ability to lock a Baby Trend car seat onto the stroller. Finally, it’s easy to fold up.
However, there are a couple of issues. The tires have a habit of going flat far quicker than you’d expect them to, and they reduce the stroller’s portability. Still, this is a versatile stroller, even if it does need some maintenance every now and again.
