Product Description

The First Years Jet Stroller in Happy Hippos Brown is Easier for You, More Comfortable for your Baby!

Finally a stroller that is durable and, yes, it really will comfortably fit your little one up to 50 lbs. The wider seat base means a more comfortable ride for your child, which will keep them in their seat longer. The larger wheels (6 inch diameter), all eight of them, allows your Jet stroller to glide over any surface.

Worried about keeping your little one in their seat? The addition of the five point harness means your little one is securely seated. And for you, the taller handles mean no more hitting the back side of the stroller or the wheels while you go for that afternoon walk or trip to the mall.

Sunny day---no worries, the fully adjustable and removable (for those cloudy days) canopy means your little one will always ride in the comfort of shade. And if your little one starts to nod off during your long afternoon walk, simply use the recline feature and they can comfortably snooze while you continue on your way!

The large upper storage console for you means your water bottle, your keys, your wallet and more are easy to access as you are out and about. And the underneath storage provides plenty of room for your diaper bag and any other "extras" you bring or buy along the way. And when you stop along the way, the rear wheel brakes will allow the stroller to stay in place.

The Jet stroller features an easy one hand fold and weighs only 11 lbs, so it is easy to toss in your trunk in between trips.

The First Years complete line of products can help you and your family reach each one safely and happily. Our line of strollers and five-star rated car seats that make safety simple. From the first welcoming cry to the first steps and beyond, The First Years gives you the products, and the confidence in them, that will help make raising your child the most rewarding experience of your life.

Features

  • Durable frame rated for use to 50lbs
  • Taller handles and multi-position recline
  • 5 pt harness for a safer ride
  • Large parent console and lower storage basket
  • Easy one hand fold and weighs only 11lbs.

This is amazing!

Super tall - same height or taller than the expensive mclaren strollers. my brother is 6ft and pushes with comfort. i am 5'7 and never need to bend over or step on the wheels!

It has little storage baags on the sides of the strollers for small things like pacifiers

The basket is the perfect size for an umbrella and holds a diaper bag.

Great sunshade

Perfect recline - does not lay flat but reclines enough to make it cozy and keep babies head from fallin forward

Great parent storage compartment for cups, water bottles, wallets, keys & cells

good quality and sturdy wheels and frame

I absolutely love it!!!!!!!!

Did I mention that it is tall?!?
My son is 12 months and fits perfect with PLENTY of room to grow.

It is everything I wanted in an umbrella with a GREAT pricetag - IDK why anyone would by another stroller - the others are all way overpriced and the cheaper ones don't have all these great features :)

way to go first years!

We bought this stroller for our 3 month old son for traveling use, especially for the airport and having to check the stroller and not knowing how well it would be handled by the airport workers. It served it's purpose well and even my 3 month old fit well in it.

However, I keep this stroller in my trunk and use it wherever I go, but dread using it because the wheels are so cheap. They have a mind of their own. Out of nowhere on a walk they will turn sideways and halt the stroller from moving forward.

I do love the bag that is attatched at the top of the stroller that comes with it. It is very handy for keys, a drink, many things. And it seems to be pretty comfortable for my son. But I just can't get over how frustrating it is to use with the wheels misbehaving so much.

    Comments about The First Years Jet Stroller - Happy Hippos Brown:

    My daughter is currently 3 years old. We first purchased this stroller (in a different color) in December of 2011 for a 2 week Caribbean Cruise/Disney World vacation with our then 2 year old. I already had 4 different strollers, yet none of them seemed to fit the criteria needed to make the trip (i.e. flimsy umbrella stroller with no storage, large full size that was too big to travel with, etc). I research for MONTHS to find a stroller, and finally decided on this one. I had had great luck with The First Years' customer service in the past so I figured there was no risk.

    I LOVE THIS STROLLER!! As you can imagine, the constant hustle of cruising (we did a Carnival cruise to the caribbean) tried our little princess out constantly. We used the stroller EVERYWHERE. We used it to move around the ship, at different ports (Was wonderful for maneuvering around the tight pathways in Nassau, Bahamas.) We even took it to Trunk Bay beach on St John and even with some sand in the wheels, it never locked up or made a weird noise. The larger, textured wheels make it a breeze with turning (can even be pushed with one hand!). Once in Disney, Its storage compartments (while not big) were perfect for packing up everything we needed for a 12 hour day at the parks! And since its so compact and lightweight, getting on and off the buses/monorails/boats was a breeze. I even received compliments from other mothers on the buses, asking what kind of stroller I had. Plus, my husband usually hates compact strollers due to the fact that the handles are shorter and he cant stand up straight while pushing. Not the case with this one! My husband is nearly 6ft and has no problems/complaints pushing it (he actually prefers it to the full size stroller due to its maneuverability).

    Now, after over a year of constant abuse from my princess, this stroller is still going strong! Its the only one she likes to sit in! I can not recommend this stroller enough! My only wish is that it came as a double, as we are currently expecting our second little girl this summer :)

    Great Stroller for the Price

    Comments about The First Years Jet Stroller - Happy Hippos Brown:

    I purchased this stroller because I wanted something more lightweight and less clunky than my Graco stroller. This definitely fits the bill. My youngest son is 16 months old, and is a pretty big boy (just over 30 lbs and quite tall).

    My requirements for my new stroller were:
    1. Lightweight design - While I love the versatility and smoothness of ride my Graco offers, it's heavy, takes up a lot of space, and is sometimes difficult to maneuver.
    2. Offers shade - The Jet Stroller's shade isn't near as helpful as my Graco's, but it'll do the job adequately.
    3. Has storage space (including parent drink/misc holders) - My Graco has an amazing amount of storage space - but again, is very large. I think the Jet Stroller offers as much storage as possible in a slimmed-down, lightweight version.
    4. Large wheels/Smooth ride - I own an inexpensive, true umbrella stroller, as well. And while it's easy to open and close, weighs next to nothing, and takes up very little space, it doesn't ride/push nicely at all. The tiny wheels don't turn when you'd like them to, and the seat doesn't appear comfortable, either. The Jet Stroller melds the best of both worlds with larger double wheels like the travel system strollers and the ease of use of the umbrella strollers.
    5. Have a 50 lb weight rating. As I stated, my son is big, and at 16 months and already being at the 30 lb mark, we would have outgrown the 40 lb rating common among these types of strollers very quickly.

    The only reason I didn't give this product 5 stars was due to it not having a child tray. There are adaptable ones on the market, which one can add to nearly any stroller, though, and that's an option we may pursue in the future. Overall, this is a great stroller for the money.

    Comments about The First Years Jet Stroller - Happy Hippos Brown:

    I thought I would really like this umbrella stroller for a vacation trip since it is bigger than the junky one I had and it had a basket. The pros is it has much taller handles so it was easy to push around without hunching over, the parent organizer seemed pretty cool, and it fit my chunky kiddo with space to spare. I didn't like that there is practically no recline (doubt he would ever be able to nap comfortably b/c he would be practically sitting straight up. It also still folds up rather large- not as big as a full size stroller of course, but I couldn't see being able to carry it around easily on vacation if our son decided to get out of the stroller for a while.

    The most disappointing part was the basket. I really thought it would be perfect for the trip so we could stow our diaper bag, but there are big metal bars blocking the basket and the basket trim has absolutely no give or stretch. You can't pull it to fit large objects in the basket. Sure, you can fit small things in there, like cups, snacks, etc but it would be very difficult to get any kind of diaper bag or back pack in there.

    We decided to return it since it wasn't going to make our trip that much easier. If we didn't already have another stroller, then this one would be good enough if you don't mind carrying a bag and not being able to use the storage easily.

    Comments about The First Years Jet Stroller - Happy Hippos Brown:

    This is a great stroller for the price. Much taller & sturdier than your typical umbrella stroller. CONS: If you leave the canopy attached when you fold up the stroller & gets really bend & pointy, so you gotta take it off when stroller is folded. Also the recline on the seat isn't much, but it's better than nothing.
    But I LOVE the basket underneath & I LOVE the cup holder/bag between the handles. I'm happy with this purchase!

      Comments about The First Years Jet Stroller - Happy Hippos Brown:

      Very good light weight stroller. I like that it can hold up to 50lbs, which is a step up for the previous umbrella stroller. Needed to upgrade because at 5 years of use the stroller was falling apart. I love this stroller because the handles are taller, I am 5'8", so now there is no more walking beside the stroller to avoid kicking the wheels or being hunched over while trying to walk. The parent console between the handles is a little different but even I was surprised as to how much it will hold in all the compartments. Successfully holds a 9 oz sippy cup and a 20oz rubbermaid bottle. The storage under the seat of the stroller is small and it takes a little extra effort to get a small bag or purse in there due to the frame of the stroller. Overall has way more than the traditional umbrella stroller. I am very happy to have purchased this stroller. Just what we needed for a light weight stroller! Would recommend to other moms.

            This is an awesome umbrella stroller. Very light. It is much higher than most umbrella strollers which makes it easy to push. The ONLY problem I have is that it does not recline much at all. If you are looking for a lightweight reclining stroller do not get this one. Other than that, I love this stroller.

                GREAT stroller. Very sturdy. Not flimsy like the other umbrella strollers. I love that it is taller as my little girl is already at almost 30 inches at 8 months. It also helps that the handles are high up so my 6'2" husband can easily push it. Love, Love, Love the compartment underneath and "parent" organizer. We were able to walk around on our vacation and not carry a diaper bag! The only con is that you tend to kick the wheels when pushing it because there is limited distance between them, but that is all umbrella strollers I suppose. This fit my 8 month old great and since it goes to 50 lbs I know we'll be able to use it for quite a while. Worth the money to have something smaller but still sturdy. The reclining on it isn't as great as I thought it would be, but it was still better than the other umbrella strollers.

                  What a great little stroller! I ordered this stroller because we are going on a road trip in a few months and don't have room to pack our jogging stroller. I wanted a small little stroller for my 3 year old (32 pound) daughter as we will be going a fair amount of walking and sight seeing. I chose this stroller based on good reviews (I checked multiple sights and they were all consistent), low price, small size & the fact that it has a small storage basket underneath and the small organizer near the handle bars. I order the stroller in black. It came in today and was very easy to put together-took me about 1 minute! It is a sharp looking stroller and handles very well around the house. For the price this is a wonderful stroller! I am very pleased with my purchase!

                  For those who say it is flimsy and tips over if you put too much weight on the bars-It's a 11 pound stroller!
