Urbini Touri Stroller Review

10/25

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central for Urbini. I received an Urbini stroller to both facilitate my review as well as thank me for my participation.


I’ve been on the lookout for a new, better stroller for several months now. Our other system had a few things I liked, but it was lacking in several areas. This is why I was SUPER excited to get to be a part of this review!

We’ve taken our lime/black Urbini Touri  stroller to several shopping areas, as well as a couple walks around town and on the rail trail. There are so many cool features that I am very impressed with!

Let me start at the beginning: I put this thing together in less than 10 minutes. From unboxing, to putting child in stroller, it took ten minutes. Crazy right!? With small children, things need to be easy and fast. The Urbini Touri  came through on both of these.

I love the lime green and block combo. It is sleek looking, while still being highly visible while strolling around our little community. There are a few times on our walks where we must cross the main road- and I feel safer doing so because of the bright lime. Plus, I just really like this color in general=).

Another feature that is a stand out is the lightness of weight. The Urbini Touri   stroller is the best lightweight stroller at about half the weight of our other stroller. It has the weight of an umbrella stroller with the features of a fully loaded giant stroller. Win-Win.

Here are some of the other things I like about this baby stroller:

1.) Folds and unfolds easily (those of you who have ever fought with a baby carriage and lost know what why this is a big deal!).

2.) The foam handles are curved and are very comfortable. Also, I can hang my shopping bags or purse directly on the handles.

3.) Easily reclines so R can take a nap or rest while we are out and about.

4.) I LOVE the swivel capabilities of the front wheels. They can be locked into place, or unlocked for rougher terrain. Our other stroller didn’t have this option and it was so hard to push on gravel! The Touri is amazing on gravel and rougher roads.

5.) The sun visor has two sections that can be used together for ultimate protection from the sun/glare. This is so helpful!!

Ronan seemed very comfortable while riding around both in the mall and on our walks. He likes to hold onto the bar across the front and just watch everything from his comfortable seat. The harness is easy to use and doesn’t seem to bother him at all. I was a little worried, at first, that the length of the bottom of the seat stuck out too far and might make his little legs uncomfortable, but he actually seems to like this position for his legs.

I have just two cons for this stroller:

1.) There is no tray for snacks or drinks for R. He does like to munch on something while we are shopping, so if this was added, we would certainly use it.

2.) The basket is usable, but it is smaller than our other stroller, so our GIANT diaper bag doesn’t fit well. I’ll either need to downsize in bags, or hang it on the bar and put my shopping bags down in the basket instead.


We’ve not yet had a chance to use the car seat that comes with this system yet, because we’ve already graduated to convertible car seats in both of our vehicles. That being said, it looks well made, matches the stroller perfectly, is lightweight, and seems to be very safe. It fits into the stroller with ease, which makes travelling with an infant so much easier.
I do like that the weight limit is 5 lbs higher than our previous infant seat, which R outgrew just recently. I’m going to give this seat to our babysitter to use in her car, since it can go up to 35 pounds! We will be able to use it for several more months before R outgrows this one.

Here is some great information from the company:

The Good, The Bad, and The Funny

10/12
"Hi friends!! I’m back! Man, I miss this blog. I can’t tell you how mnay times I’m driving from point A to point B and an awesome post idea pops into my head. Usually, I’ll be having one of my many “personal conversations” with myself, and an awesome blog post title will just materialize…..and then I finally get home and the laundry needs folded or a book needs to be read. By the time I sit down to write, the idea is gone! Anyone have a good remedy for remembering thoughts you have while driving? If it is possible, I write down ideas in my little green notebook I carry everywhere….but I can’t really do that while busing boys to and from practice. Ideas are welcome!! Anyways, todays blog post is a thought I actually remembered and I’m so glad I did=). I think that these posts are going to be so much fun for all involved. So here the idea: I’m going to post something good, something bad, and something funny that has happened in our week. I got this idea from a podcast I started listening to recently (shout out to Totally Mommy!!). …"

Fall Bucket List

"I couldn’t let the beginning of fall (my favorite season) come and go without touching base with you, my sweet readers. It is true that finding a spare 20 minutes to sit down and write a bit is proving to be a tad difficult this fall. Some evenings, my brain is mush. Anything I write ends up sounding like a mishmash of craziness spouting from my head. To spare you from that, I’ve scaled back a bit (if you haven’t noticed!). Even so, I’m feeling rather normal this evening so I hope that this hodgepodge of my musings makes sense. …"

Still kickin’

"Hi. It’s me. I’m still alive and kicking. Things have been awful crazy busy around here and I guess I should apologize for not keep you, my sweet readers, in the loop. But ya know what…I’m not gonna. Not because I don’t love ya’ll, or think that I’ve let you down for not posting more often. Because both of those statements are truth. I’m not going to apologize because it is what it is right now. We are in a season of life that has no breaks for sitting down to write. And I know you sweet people know exactly what I’m talking about. Heck, you’ve probably been there (or are there right now) yourselves! I could drone on today about all of the things that keep me busy, how hard it is to maintain sanity (and bedtimes), and how tired I am at any given moment of any given day. But I will spare you the gory details and just give ya the bulleted list:…"
