Where to Buy
 

The Go-Go Babyz Urban Advantage is a three-wheeled stroller that is not a jogging stroller; rather it's designed for urban terrains, such as gravel driveways or paths, and for tight turns inside stores. Experts and owners particularly like the unusual kickstand feature that they say solves the tipping issue that has sometimes been reported as a problem with three-wheeled strollers. They also like its great degree of maneuverability, including a full swivel front wheel. Owners also say it's comfortable for baby, and the tall handle is good for taller parents. It is compatible with the Graco SnugRide or Graco SafeSeat infant car seats. Although the manufacturer says it folds easily, there are a number of complaints about the difficulty of folding the stroller and many complaints about the difficulty of engaging and disengaging the brakes. One expert review says that quality issues with the Urban Advantage do not make it worth purchasing, even though it can cost less than comparable three-wheeled strollers. Although it costs more, the well-reviewed BOB Revolution is a three-wheeled, all-terrain stroller that is durable and is more likely to last through your baby's stroller years.

This site includes an informative video giving an overview of the Go-Go Babyz Urban Advantage. The video demonstrates features, but it gives no feedback on real-world situations and does not compare the Urban Advantage to other strollers. There is a good demonstration of the kickstand feature, and the stroller appears bulky when folded. The site also include a full list of specs for the Urban Advantage

The Go-Go Babyz Urban Advantage stroller is rated on this site as a jogging stroller, even though it notes on its website that it is not a jogging stroller. It receives 4.2 stars (out of a possible 5) in about 20 reviews. Owners say they like its maneuverability, kickstand feature, ease of use and comfort for the child.

4. Amazon.com

The Go-Go Babyz Urban Advantage stroller earns 3.8 stars (out of a possible 5) in a handful of reviews. Owners say it's a good value for the price, very easy to maneuver and comfortable for the child. There are several complaints about the brakes being difficult to use, and they are similar enough to indicate that it might be a problem with the design, and not an occasional defect.
