Thanks to Summer Infant for providing a Summer Infant Stroller for the Stroller Tour to facilitate this post and to Jamie from Momma Without a Clue for this review!
There’s nothing I like more than going for a walk at the end of the day with my family. It helps bring us closer together, winds the kids down so they’re ready for the bedtime routine when we get back home, and is just a peaceful way to end our hectic days.
Recently. we were sent a 3D lite Stroller from Summer Infant to review, and not a moment too soon I might add. While my baby girl is still little compared to other 15 month-olds, toting around 18 pounds on my hip gets heavy after a while. Of course, I could let her walk since she’s perfected the toddle-toddle-wobble, but the goal of our evening walks is to relax. There’s just something less-than-calm about having to chase a tiny human through the park while trying to keep up a conversation.
This week, all of us have been sick with bronchitis (ew!) and haven’t really felt like taking a stroll. Luckily, we finally had an evening where we were all back to our normal selves and so the Fiance and I decided to take the little ones on a stroll through our town of Murphy, North Carolina.
The 3D lite Stroller was incredibly easy to set up, and only took me a couple of minutes. First, you snap on the wheels. This took me a second because I refuse to look at instruction manuals first, but once I noticed the little notches for each one, it was so quick! I just had to slide each wheel on, and there’s a loud click that lets you know they’re on there snug. Next, you have to attach the canopy. To do this, I opened the stroller up and then the canopy just slid right into the slots on each side. I love when baby gear is simple!
The stroller was all ready to go, and so were we! I live in a tiny town that shuts down by 5pm, so the first thing we did was head downtown to window shop.
Pointing out everything and telling my little people the names of it all not only teaches them, it encourages me to try harder when it comes to communicating with them. I know it sounds silly, but there’s times when I’m not even sure how to talk to kids (especially my own) and this is our way of talking to each other. I’ll show my three year old a neat rock, and it turns into some elaborate story from him about another kid at daycare.
Of course, the little man’s legs start getting tired after walking a while, so we stopped to rest at the gorgeous flower garden in the center of town. The 3D lite has great brakes, so when little man decided to push baby girl around, she didn’t budge. There’s even a basket underneath that’s big enough to hold the diaper bag so we had some snacks while we rested.
The last place that we took our new 3D lite Stroller was to Konehete Park, and the two mile River Walk that begins there.
The River Walk is a project that our town has been dedicated to since 2003 that wraps around the town with scenic pathways along the Valley and Hiwassee rivers that connect to form Lake Hiwassee. It’s such a serene stroll, that by the time we get back home, the kids are usually ready for bed!
About the 3D lite Convenience Stroller:
A lightweight umbrella stroller with all the great features you’d find in a full-sized stroller, the 3D lite offers so much at the great price of $79. I received the beautiful Hibiscus Pink, but it comes in six vibrant colors so you can get one that you will love!
Some of my favorite features include:
- a large storage basket underneath the seat
- an attachable cup-holder for Mommy
- lockable rear wheels
- multi-position recline (up to almost 180°!)
- 5-point safety harness
- rear storage pocket (so I don’t lose my keys!)
