I was thrilled on my very last excursion out before being laid out on bed rest, to check out the latest and greatest from my favorite Britax and their latest addition to the family, BOB Strollers. Combining the best loved features from both Britax and BOB, they came together to create the BOB MOTION. BOB is traditionally known for their jogging strollers and this newest stroller brings them into the everyday stroller market with their first 4-wheeled stroller taking child from birth to 65lbs.
The BOB MOTION is surprising lightweight at 23lbs thanks to its aluminum frame and folds with that lovely one handed collapse that I drool over all the time. Something so simple and yet such a lifesaver when you’re juggling everything as usual. They took it even one step further with a safety button to prevent accidental collapse and release.
One thing I noticed right off the bat is the incredibly generous sun shade. It seemed to extend a lot further than I am use to seeing. When you fully recline the seat back, the sun shade seemed to cover more than 75% of the seats length. With the BOB B-SAFE infant car seat attached to the included Britax Click & Go adapter, the canopy provides complete coverage with a handy ventilation window for viewing baby at all times.
With a full spring suspension system, the BOB stroller can handle any terrain, even the busy streets of New York City.
As a details person, I check things out like 5-pt harnesses carefully and what I noticed immediately is that the pieces don’t disconnect easily and that’s a good thing. It’s the small things that bother me and nothing is more frustrating than fighting with a toddler and trying to buckle them into a harness that has one too many pieces to connect.
This stroller is ready to take the most active family on the road any day.
