I have used UPPAbaby strollers since I became a mom,  more than eight years ago.  As a first-time mom, keeping my baby safe was my first 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.

[Updated January 2023]

When it was time to purchase a stroller, I did research…a ton of it!  I wanted a 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 loved it!!

UPPAbaby Stroller Review for Travel

UPPAbaby Vista’s ginormous storage basket

The UPPAbaby 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.

Although I love the Vista, it isn’t always the most convenient stroller for air travel.  Because of it’s size, 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.

UPPAbaby G-LITE at Disney in Orlando, FL

To solve this issue, we purchased the UPPAbaby G-LITE.  The G-LITE is a lightweight, umbrella stroller. It has a convenient shoulder strap that we use when going through TSA checkpoints or when our kids insist on walking.  There are two drawbacks to the G-LITE. First, they don’t recline so the kids can nap comfortably and second, the storage area is not as large as the Vista access basket.

UPPAbaby VISTA with RumbleSeat in Kauai, HI

When I found out that I was expecting a second child, I purchased the UppaBaby Vista Piggyback Ride Along Board and RumbleSeat accessories for the Vista, so that our son could stand or ride along with his baby sister.

The UPPAbaby MINU unboxed

I thought my stroller collection was complete but then…UPPAbaby released the MINU and 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 allow 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, a binky or random toy.  The MINU also has a strap and can be easily folded using only one hand (because as a momma of two 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 made travel so much easier for my family.  We never leave home without our UPPAbaby strollers.  The UPPAbaby MINU and Vista help to ensure premium comfort for me and my children.
