The Baby Jogger City Mini GT Pram Review

The Baby Jogger City Mini GT Pram Review

The Baby Jogger, City Mini GT pram is jam packed full of amazing features you be amazed to find in such a compact pram.

The Baby Jogger City Mini GT makes outings with children so much easier with all the features we love about the standard City Mini taken to the next level.

The main difference between the two strollers is that the City Mini™ GT has All-Terrain wheels, transforming this everyday stroller into a more maneuverable and adaptable stroller for all types of terrain. Whether you a are steering you way through a busy shopping centre or tackling the park terrain this stroller can handle it all.

The patented one-hand compact fold is a stand out feature, hold baby with one-hand and whilst closing the stroller with the other, it is so easy-to-use and the compact fold makes it ideal for the smallest of boots.

Your baby will be comfortable when sitting in the deep, padded seat, recline fully for day sleeps or adjust upright to explore. And how can we forget the large storage basket, great for that big nappy bag and other items you need to ensure day trips are a dream.

The Baby Jogger City Mini GT has a generous sun canopy, which can be opened in different stages, depending on the level of coverage or privacy you need. The canopy has a SPF 50+ rating to help keep baby safe from harmful UV rays. And the two peek-a-boo windows make it easy to check on your little one.

WHEELS

The 3 air filled wheels and suspension make this pram a dream to use. We were able to zip around and tackle different terrains easily. A plus for busy shopping centres, city walks or leisurely strolls.

SAFETY FEATURES AND BRAKE SYSTEM

The City Mini GT has all the safety features you would expect. We found the red hand brake located near the handlebar a plus, as it was easy to access. We also loved the quick release 5-point safety harness, easy to buckle and padded for added baby comfort.

SAFETY

FOLD/UNFOLD

The Baby Jogger City Mini GT fold mechanism is a standout feature on this pram for many reasons. The unfold was super easy, one-hand was all it took.

The lightweight and compact size made it easy to lift and fit in any car boot or cupboard and when we were ready to go again one-hand was all it took to get it open.

The other great feature on the fold was the automatic lock. This ensured that the pram wouldn’t open when in the car boot.

HANDLEBAR

The silicon-textured handlebar is comfortable to use and provides additional grip. We found the height adjustment easy to use and accommodated various heights comfortably.

STORAGE

Considering the compact size of the City Mini GT, the storage basket was quite generous, holding up to 4.5kgs. This allows enough room for a nappy bag or shopping. We also liked the additional storage pocket at the rear of seat, great for little items that you use regularly or need to access quickly (up to 0.9kg).

CARRYCOT AND TRAVEL SYSTEM COMPATABILITY

The City Mini GT has the ability to allow for a Bassinet. There are 2 bassinet models available: Compact and Deluxe. Both are great options for your newborn as they offer a lie-flat resting position, making them ideal for out and about sleeps. If a capsule or infant carrier is more your style, the City Mini GT is compatible with Peg Perego, Maxi Cosi and Chicco. This solution is great for transferring your sleeping baby from car to stroller without disturbing them too much.

(NB: Basinets, Adaptors and Infant Carriers are sold separately)
