Baby Jogger City Mini GT



Pros:
- fantastic looks
- great quality
- durable and easy to clean fabrics (apart from the small part on each side of footrest)
- huge sun canopy with viewing windows
- easy to adjust and comfortable 5 point harness
- infinite strap recline to a flat position
- one hand fold
- hand brake
- very large shopping basket
- good quality wheels
- very large seat
- comfortable height adjustable handlebar
- light to push one handed even with a 4 year old in the seat.

Cons:
- low canopy, even though the seat can take a tall child the hood rim will make them uncomfortable, with the hood opened it's much better but for an older child this may not be ideal
- wheels are not all terrain, they're small and good on normal pavements and occasional walk in the park but they don't go over rough ground easily
- lack of a leg rest means toddlers look uncomfortable when sleeping
- seat hard to put upright with child in it
- fabric on each side of the leg rest is easy to tear as it's so stretched.

What shed is a fantastic independent buyer's guide to all garden buildings. If you're in the market for a new shed, log cabin or maybe a new playhouse for your little ones look no further. What shed has a huge amount of product and brand reviews and can find you the best price for the garden building you're after too.

If you've been reading my blog for the last few years then you might remember we bought our son a playhouse for his 3rd birthday. I spent hours and hours online and going to local retailers trying to find the best playhouse I could within our budget. I wish I had access to What shed to make my life that much easier. I would have chosen the playhouse within minutes and found where to buy it at the best price from the most trusted retailer. You can find out which playhouse we went with by going here.

Please check out: http://whatshed.co.uk/wooden-playhouses/ for more information and look at some gorgeous products!

Below is just a few of the beautiful playhouses.






If that's not enough to convince then there's a lot of fun and informative blog posts on there too, this is one of my favourite: http://whatshed.co.uk/gardening-great-kids/. A must for any parent thinking of making the garden more family friendly.

Baby Jogger City Premier







After trying out the Baby Jogger City Versa and Versa GT I knew I'd have to at least give the new City Premier a go with my daughter. I was hoping it would be lighter to push than the Versa GT and have much better wheels than the standard Versa. I also liked the look of the Premier more than the 2 Versas and it reminded me of the City Select that I really loved but which was slightly too wide and too long as a single pushchair. Here's my look at the Baby Jogger City Premier.

Pros:
- the elegant look
- good size wheels with suspension
- fantastic denim like fabrics, a great upgrade on the standard slippery like fabrics on previous models
- huge seat
- massive basket
- one hand fold with seat in situ both parent and world facing
- extendable handlebar
- easy to apply handbrake.

Cons:
- heavy to push
- noisy front wheels
- canopy folds itself down when fully extended
- very heavy to fold with one hand, easier to do with seat removed but still heavy and awkward to hold/lift, doesn't freestand
- very heavy to tip up kerbs.

Overall the Baby Jogger City Premier was a disappointment to me. It ticked all the boxes on paper but it was just too heavy and I couldn't believe how noisy the wheels were. I wish Baby Jogger would make the pushchair lighter to lift and to push because with such a huge seat and basket it could really be a fantastic pushchair.
