I have been an UPPAmomma since I was pregnant with my first child, a little more than five years ago. As a first-time mom, keeping my baby safe was my number one priority. But as a traveler, being able to navigate through an airport with ease was also very important. I needed something safe, comfortable and versatile.
When it was time to purchase a stroller, I did research…a ton of it! I wanted a safe stroller, made from durable materials, that was also cute. The UPPAbaby strollers and accessories checked all of my boxes. I decided to purchase the UPPAbaby VISTA and I totally loved it!!
The VISTA is large and comes with a load of features to include: a seat that reclines for naps on the go, a reversible seat that can be adjusted to face forward or backward, a peek-a-boo window, a sunshade, and my fave…a ginormous access basket.
Even though I LOVE and still use my VISTA, it isn’t always the most convenient stroller for air travel. Because of the size of the VISTA, I generally would leave the stroller with the rest of our luggage during the check-in process. But that left us without a stroller as we worked our way through security with a little one.
To solve this issue, we purchased the UPPAbaby G-LITE. The G-LITE is an uber lightweight, umbrella stroller. It has a convenient shoulder strap that we use when going through TSA checkpoints or when our kids insist on walking. The only downsides to the G-LITE are that it does not recline so the kids can nap comfortably and the storage area is not as large as the VISTA access basket.
I thought my stroller collection was complete but then…UPPAbaby released the MINU in 2018. This stroller is EVERYTHING!!!
The MINU is a hybrid of the things I love about the VISTA and the G-LITE strollers. It has the reclining seat feature that allows my kiddos to take naps while I explore, a large storage area under the seat, as well as a pocket in the back that’s perfect for my cell phone, binky or a random toy. The MINU also has a strap and can be easily folded using only one hand (because as a momma of two small children, one hand is about all I can spare). The MINU stroller is perfect for my family’s semi-nomadic lifestyle!
The UPPAbaby MINU has revolutionized travel for my family. We never leave home without our UPPAbaby strollers. We take the MINU for our 2-year-old and the
G-LITE for our 5-year-old. We still use the VISTA around town and for all trips to Disney to ensure premium comfort.
