When you have 4 children back-back such as we do, there comes a time when even great-grandma has put in her time to help give the baby a little push. Or when grandma has taken the stroller for a walk around the block well you attend your doctor’s appointment. Or when the cousins are over playing mom and dad, it is always a blast when you can pretend to take a real baby for a walk.
Well since I have had the pleasure & honour to parent test the latest PTPA winner, the CITY MINI GT, by Baby Jogger. The above situations have happened more than once with R new stroller.
Great-Grandma cannot stop telling her bingo friends and everyone in the shopping center just how amazing the CITY MINI GT is to push.
“I can push it with my pinky finger!”
Grandma is offering up walks with the baby, because the ease of pushing is effortless. And every time she does, she compliments about how much easier it is to use then our other stroller.
Even the cousins cannot stop talking about the new stroller, and just how “Amazing “ it is, pretend time happens every time they are over.
The first time we ripped the CITY MINI GT out of the box, it was jaw dropping just how amazing it really was. We were actually in the parking lot after picking it up we couldn’t wait to take it for a spin. We were debating who got to push first; even the kids wanted a turn. The first impressions were how easy it was to maneuver, and the ease of the push. Great Grandma is right you can push it with your pinky.
Since then it’s been a dream stroller!
CITY MINI GT by Baby Jogger, is perfect for hikes, climbing hills, snow, ice, sand, wood chips any terrain you throw at it, it can handle. CITY MINI GT shows no signs of struggle on R back country roads. We even tested our CITY MINI GT on our homemade ice rink this winter, the baby
enjoyed a little spin gliding around perfectly.
My favorite features on the CITY MINI GT is the ease of folding. “WOW! you can fold it all with one hand.” When you’re like me and have so many little feet running around, one hand folding is a must!
My husband loves the tires, as we have mentioned a before we have a thing for tires. They are 8.5″ quick-release forever-air tires with sealed ball bearings. Now that’s a feature any male would drool over.

If you’re on the hunt for the perfect stroller CITY MINI GT is the “Perfect dream stroller” by far. The only dislike we personally have found is it comes basic. You even have to upgrade a cup holder for the CITY MINI GT . This has been a conflict for me a time or 2. With so many little hands to hold and the stroller to push, there is no room for mama to enjoy a warm tea, or even a place for a lingering Sippy cup.
There are some fun accessories I’d love to get my hands on, besides the cup holder. I’d love to give a glider board a try, I am sure my toddler would love it! So would my hips.
Meaning it’s been Parent Tested, Parent Approved!
Here is what one PTPA tester said about CITY MINI GT,
After reviewing the City Mini GT by Baby Jogger I have found the perfect stroller for my family! I have often said that I wish there was a stroller that I could customize to be exactly what I am looking for and Baby Jogger has made my wish come true with the City Mini GT. It is perfectly
sized for shopping and neighborhood walking, yet rugged enough to go off the sidewalk and onto the trails. It combines the handling of a true jogging stroller with the size of a mall stroller into one super stroller that can handle all of my needs as a busy mom of two. I can easily interchange my toddler and my four-year-old into the same stroller without compromising the handling and stability. The City Mini GT is small enough to fit in my trunk and still allow me room for groceries, sports equipment and extra gear yet my child is not cramped riding in it and has lots of room and feel comfortable. The adjustable handlebar is fantastic as my husband can customize the stroller to his needs without feeling like he’s too big to push it. Overall the City Mini GT is a phenomenal stroller that I highly recommend and I have loved testing it out.
Congratulations to CITY MINI GT on your PTPA Seal.
