Britax Blink Stroller

Britax has recently introduced several new strollers, including a new lightweight stroller — the Blink ($149, currently on sale for $99).

With several fun patterns, this 16 lbs. ride is perfect for cities or as a second stroller!

Click below for our review!

Things We Like:

A true umbrella stroller, it comes with a full-coverage canopy that took about two minutes to attach — the wheels and basket are already on. The under-seat storage is decent-sized, plus it features a pretty roomy storage pouch on the back of the hood.

Just don’t hang too much weight on the back or you’ll risk tipping it over (good advice for ANY umbrella stroller). We loved that it came with a carry strap and a transport bag — very helpful for airplane gate storage. It also has one-foot, linked rear brakes so one step will lock both wheels.

Recommended for children from ages 6 months up to 55 lbs., this stroller will perform well on city streets or for quick in-and-out of the car errands. It’s got a tight-turning radius that’s perfect for maneuvering around small aisles and spaces. It’s also super easy to carry up and down subway steps.

Things We Don’t Like:

At 16 lbs., it’s not the lightest lightweight stroller out there. And it doesn’t come with a rain cover, but any standard umbrella rain cover should work fine.

CBB rating:

We think the Blink is a good choice for a lightweight/travel stroller. Since the price has recently dropped to $99, it’s also a great option for a second stroller.

I just got this stroller as a Christmas gift, and so far, I love it! My previous stroller was a full sized Chico from the travel system, and it literally took up my entire trunk in my hatch back. This is a much smaller option, and works great for my 18 month old!

I bought a Britax umbrella stroller several years ago and the one thing I love is the foot rest part can be up or down. It works great for younger babies and for older children who like to carry toys (there are less likely to fall out!). I love this new style and the larger canopy is a great improvement!

I researched too and couldn’t find it for $99. I really like this stroller. Similiar to the Maclaren and Chicco’s. And $99 is def. reasonable!!

You can get it here for $99 through the end of the year!

Also use the coupon code 15OFF. I got the stroller for $89 which includes UPS ground shipping. Looking forward to it.
