As a toddler I love walking around whenever I go out with mommy or daddy. There however are times when we do go out for long period of times. What’s a toddler to do then? While I may look like a grown up little girl, I’m only 2 and I don’t have the long legs mommy and daddy does. I also get tired very quickly and I’m not always able to keep up. So what’s a toddler to do? That’s where a stroller comes in. I have had a LOT of strollers in my 2 years of living. From strollers that automatically fold by themselves like a Transformers to those that were so difficult that mommy and I were not a fan. As parents you look for convenience and you also want something that isn’t difficult. Mommy looks for those but she also looks for quite a few other things as well. Today I want to share with you a stroller that I just know that moms and dads everywhere are going to love. Introducing the F2 Stroller by Combi. Not only is this stroller super efficient but it’s light and very convenient.
Before I go into my review of the Combi F2 stroller I want to share a bit about the company. Combi was founded in 1989 and prides itself in creating lightweight, compact, and portable strollers, car seats, high chairs, mobile entertainers, and accessories. They strive to design products that make parenting easier and maximize convenience. Now on to my new F2 stroller!
The Combi F2 stroller is designed for babies – toddlers ages 6 month – 3 years and is available in the following colors: Blue, Pink, White, Red and Yellow. Now one of the reasons why it’s only available for 6 months and up is because while it does recline, it doesn’t recline a full 90 degrees. It does however recline from 120 to 135 degree. So while your little one may not be fully flat, they still are at an angle that is quite comfortable in the event that they fall asleep. The seat is also super easy to adjust and you can find that sweet spot that your little one loves.
Now you’re probably wondering about set up. I have to tell you that there is NONE. There is no set-up needed since it comes already set up for you. You don’t even have to put the wheels on. Everything is already done.
Now on to the features which is what you’ve all been waiting for.
Although I’m now a toddler and can fully walk, there are times when I fall asleep when traveling and mommy has to lift me up. Can you imagine holding an infant or toddler and trying to open or even lift a stroller. This stroller is super easy to open. It has a one hand operation that can be easily opened when you are holding your little one or even your shopping bag. It is also one of the lightest stroller we have had to date. This stroller weighs in at only 12lbs. The handle is a one piece handle and not two and while it was perfect for mommy who is 5′ 10″ tall, daddy had a bit of a problem being 6′ 5″ because the handle doesn’t adjust.
The seats are made of mesh so it keeps your baby cool and comfortable. Great for those summer weathers. The canopy is very large and is able to cut over 99% of ultra-violet ray in sunlight so that your little one can be protected. I love that it can be pulled down quite easily and that it completely shaded my face from the sun.
It has a 5-point safety harness which offers maximum protection and retention. It’s also a one-touch buckle and is super easy to not only secure your little one but also easy to release as well. It is also made of padded cloth and not the usual material that most safety harness are made from. The seat is a good size for baby and toddlers alike, and I was able to fit in with a bit of room to spare.
There is also a built in footrest that is also not adjustable but it’s perfect for me. Younger children may not be able to reach it.
The F2 also comes with a shock absorbing frame which helps absorb vibrations when riding. The wheels are made of smooth rubber and the front wheels swivel but also comes with a swivel lock which you can also use to prevent them from moving. The back wheels also comes with a brake lock that can be use with just the touch of your foot. We found that it rode nicely on most surfaces but when we tried it when it snowed we didn’t have that great of a ride and it was actually a bit difficult to push.
There is also a convenient basket which you can use to put your diaper bag or even shopping bags. It’s not too big but it is very convenient.
While the Combi F2 stroller isn’t your full deluxe stroller it is perfect for babies who are sitting up and toddlers alike. Mommy and I loved the fact that it is so lightweight and easy to use. The one hand fold was a really nice feature and here’s another that she loved. It doesn’t take up too much space in the back of her minivan. She usually put my stroller laying down but even if standing not a lot of space is used. We would however have liked if the handle was adjustable and while cupholders aren’t a big deal it would have been a plus. We also wished that the wheels had more texture instead of it being smooth so that it would have been able to ride nicely in all weather conditions.
Overall the Combi F2 Strolleris a super light, compact and very convenient stroller. It’s also the stroller that I plan on using on my upcoming trip so you may see a few more pictures of it in use in the Caribbean. Priced at only $199 it’s also super affordable. I think that you would love it as much as I do. It’s why it gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!
