Most parents give the Chicco Caddy umbrella stroller high marks for its 11-pound weight, stylish design, linked rear brakes, zipper pockets on the sun shade and one-hand fold mechanism. Some owners report problems with the footrest being too close to the tires and insufficient storage space. A few parents also indicate that their kids are able to wriggle out of the straps, and some complain about a slipping sun canopy and stuck lap belts. Parents say the Chicco Caddy is a great 'disposable' stroller, obviously not meant to last forever.
Perhaps because it's so inexpensive, there are a large number of parent-written reviews for the Chicco Caddy umbrella stroller on Epinions, Target.com, Amazon.com and BabyBargains.com. Unfortunately, aside from a single editorial review at Baby-Gaga.com, there are no other professional evaluations to be found for the Chicco Caddy (not even from Consumer Reports, usually a good source of stroller reviews).
Baby-Gaga.com bases its ratings and comments on interviews with parents, and this review is more detailed than any review we found, giving the Chicco Caddy umbrella stroller ratings in several performance areas, plus a final grade. The conclusion is that the Chicco Caddy is not the best stroller -- nor is it meant to be. Rather, it makes a good second stroller for quick trips.
