    Default City Mini or City Select?

    Hi

    Wasn't sure where to post this.... I currently have a Strider Plus, but selling it, as it isn't want I thought it would be.

    My daughter is 6 months, hope to have another baby within next 2 1/2 years, tossing up between the city mini or city select.

    Anyone car to share what they found to be pro/con with either?

    I didn't have internet access when I choose the Strider, other wise I would of know how it takes up whole boot/and very wide.

    Thank You

    I have a 20 month old and an 11 week old and I have the City Select and I LOVE it!!! I previously had a Strider and this City Select is SOOOOOOOOO much more manouverable and such a god send with the 2 kiddies.... My toddler LOVES being on the front and I have the capsule and bassinet attachment and love the convenience of being able to keepp the newborn in either of those if we're out, it's great!!!

    I have the City Select and it's great. I have an almost three and a half year old (who is very tall for his age) and he'll still get a lot of use out of it as you can take the sun visors off for older/taller children and they can still use the seats as the weight limit is quite high. He can climb all over it and it doesn't tip and is so easy to drive

    Just a tip - do some searching on Amazon. I got mine there and saved SO MUCH and the service was brilliant. PM me if you like

    DP and I were tossing up between these two and ended up getting the mini and we LOVE IT! There is a few kilos difference between the two of them, and seeing I'm the one who loads and unloads it from the car the most, I appreciated how light and easy to use it was... we've never had a problem.

    Good luck!!

    I am looking at buying the Strider Plus, is there a reason I should keep looking?? I want a 3 wheel pram, easy to steer. Not planning or expecting another baby after this one so doesnt need to be suitable for 2.
    Sorry to crash you thread OP,hope you dont mine! Just searching for some info/suggestions pls Thanks.

    If you want it as a double, go the City Select as the City Mini doesn't convert to a double.

    We've got the City Mini, and I love it! It's really light and easy for me to get in/out of the car. I'm fairly small built, and found lots of the other prams much heavier.

    I have a commodore with a large boot and it takes up most of it. Its extremely wide and if you go out to lunch or dinner its hard to get the pram between chairs and tables.
    Even in some shops the aisle ways are to narrow because the base is so wide. ITs hard to collapse and heavy.
