City Micro

I know a few of you have expressed interest in this stroller, and the rumor is some Targets have it marked down to 70% off or around 50 bucks.  Just thought I'd pass it on.

  • It's still $99 at my target, but they had 3 left.

  • It was at mine too.  They had one left but the box was open.

  • I have the City Mini GT... is it worth getting the micro? i love a good deal but am not sure if I need it.

  • Supposedly, the new City Micro at Target is almost identical to the regular City Mini (according to the newsletter I received from Baby Jogger) and is compatible with all of the Mini's accessories.  I have seen on some sites that you can swap out the front wheels from a City Mini by ordering them from Baby Jogger directly.

    I fell in love with the GT when we "test drove" it at BBB.  I registered for it but did not receive it.  Since we have a lot of other things going on right now, a $350.00 splurge for a stroller seemed a bit steep right now, so I decided to buy the Micro when they were marked down.  We'll see how it works out in the beginning.  Since I will be returning to work full time and LO will be with my mom during the days anyway, I don't even know how often we'll be using a stroller anyways.

    Mind you, it is still sitting in the box in my living room, so I cannot do any real comparisons right now.  I think we are going to put it together this weekend, and I need to buy the car seat adapter.

    I have the GT as well and love it...I was looking the Micro for travel and just to have a slightly smaller umbrella stroller for errands (DH doesn't think we need more than the GT though).   Right now we use the car seat and snap-n-go as our "umbrella stroller" but that's obviously not a long-term possibility.  If I find one for $50 at my Target I will definitely grab it.

  • What target has any in stock?  I looked when it was $99 and didn't see any by me.

    If you want it for a light weight travel stroller, I'd probably get a Maclaren or something similar instead. As much as I love my city mini, I think and umbrella fold is better for travel w/ one kid.

    I thought about that...I just love that the Micro has the giant sun shade like the Mini and fully reclines.  waaaaa.

    Most Maclarens have a good recline, right? Not the Volo. The triumph is at least half way back. I thought the Micro wasn't fully reclined - b/c they don't recommend it for newborns or maybe that was an older model? 

    The shades on the baby jogger strollers are great and if you got it for $50 it would be hard to argue with.

    The more expensive Maclarens have a recline.  The Micro doesn't recline ALL the way, but it's pretty close.  As you said, for $50 it's kind of a no-brainer.  Going to Target this weekend to see if I get lucky!

  • Target South Philly had one the other day but the box was open on both ends and in really bad shape.  Still $99.00.

  • While you ladies are out and about hunting for strollers, let me know if you find a good deal on a single jogger! 

    Our double jogger was ruined in the hurricane damage but regardless we only need a single now that JD is bigger and we only use it at the shore for the beach so I won't pay more than $100 for one

  • $99 in Malvern and Oaks

  • I went to check this out on Thursday and ended up not getting it, but picked up 2 shirts for Brooks that were marked down to $2.50 a piece! At check out I got a 20% coupon didn't notice it till I got home. Went back today and picked up the stroller for $80! I think that's a good investment. Thanks OP
