As if you’re not already anxious with the anticipation of Aunt Doris’ warrior-like grip on your little cherub’s cheeks, or the thought of not packing enough warm clothes to get through annual home leave this year, one less thing to worry about is the pram you’ll use to comfortably cart bubba around during your days. You’ve got this. You can totally OWN these scenarios. Parents on the move, rejoice: there’s a compact and lightweight stroller solution available in Singapore. Introducing the Baby Jogger City Mini Zip, the brilliantly functional, durable, and smallest folding umbrella stroller for urban mums.
Scenario #1: The pre-trip jitters (otherwise known as Orchard Road shopping madness)
Whether you’ve been in Singapore for years, or this is your first trip back home, the family you left behind expects unique gifts from the island nation you now call home. That’s the easy part. What’s not easy is traipsing up and down Orchard Road while power-browsing Singapore trinkets with baby-in-tow (have you tried Lucky Plaza on a Sunday in November?) With City Mini Zip’s rounded handlebar for smooth one-handed steering and five-point harness that’ll help you to maneuver in and out of the paths of other frenzied shoppers this season, you’re in charge of making this year’s Christmas shopping adventure more conducive to the holiday spirit.
Scenario #2: You own this pre-trip play date
Be the oh-so-smart mum on the block when you roll up with your new ride, as your older tots ride snuggly holding onto the optional Belly Bar. Kitted out with a generously large, multi-position sun canopy with a UPF 50+ rating, the City Mini Zip provides a comfortable stroll, rest and sleep solution that’s impervious to the mischief of older siblings while you sit and sip with the other mums. For any mishaps, the “strolls big” yet “folds small” pram can get you in and out of sticky (sometimes literally) situations in a jiffy, and with the optional car seat adapter, is compatible with popular car seats like the Maxi Cosi Capsules, Peg Perego Viaggio, Nuna Pipa and Chicco Fit, helping you to flit off at a moment’s notice.
Scenario #3: To the airport, stat!
You’re waiting for the taxi to schlep your brood (not to mention the overpacked suitcases filled with Christmas gifts galore) to a very congested airport to begin your eons-long travel journey. Oh right, and hubby can’t join you on this flight because he has to “work” all the way up to Christmas Eve. Add in the impending whimpers of a tot who doesn’t yet realise how confused he will be once daylight lasts for over twelve hours a day. Bliss, right? Show everyone who’s boss when your taxi arrives by a quick, one-handed sleight of hand to collapse your stroller into a space that’s 50% smaller than other umbrella strollers. Even better? The optional travel bag doubles as a backpack, making your stride easier. Yep, that’s right. You own this dream scheme.
