DISCONTINUED in 2016
see 2 parent reviews

The Baby Jogger Vue is the first umbrella stroller in the US with a reversible seat. The seat is spacious enough even for larger children. It can be used from birth. For a newborn, a soft carrycot is also available. You can adjust the backrest and leg rest in both directions. Moreover, the leg rest at the back creates additional storage space, when the time comes for the baby to face the world. Using adapters, you can attach the car seat to the stroller to create a travel system. The stroller comes with a cup holder.

Parent reviews of the Baby Jogger Vue

parents say thx^^
  • Small fold
  • Light
  • Switches from the front, to parent facing with one small squeeze of a lever
  • Big seat.. will fit a child for years.
  • Huge hood!
  • Great to push
  • Very clever design
  • Tiny basket underneath (but you can store stuff behind the seat when front facing and you can hang a bag easily)

I have no idea why Baby Jogger discontinued this... it's brilliant!

I needed a 'throw in the boot of a small car' buggy to use with my Grandson. We have a massive Mountain Buggy Terrain (also awesome) for long dog walks in the fields, but for quick trips around town I needed something small and nippy and found a barely used Vue second-hand.

As a regular umbrella stroller, it's light, compact, nicely built, and pushes well. The seat is nice and large and the hood is HUGE.. best coverage I've seen.

And... it's reversible with a quick squeeze of the lever that turns it from a standard front facing stroller to a parent facing one.. that's all you do! There is a harness on each side so it really is that easy! There is a nice leg rest, a deep high backed seat and while the wheels aren't going to tackle Everest they are fine for urban use.

  • canopy
  • materials used
  • reversible
  • small basket
  • two separate handlebars

I used it mainly for traveling 🚗. It's super-easy to fold, you can reverse the seat, and the wheels managed even some snow. ❄ The materials are fine with summer as well as winter use. A super-large canopy. Height-wise, it's suitable even for a tall parent. I was using it with a small baby facing me. But an older toddler is comfy in it - even for napping. The basket features a zipper for easier access, but it's small... only for the rain cover. A cup holder is included. The chassis is stable. You can fold it even when there's a footmuff or a liner inside.
