I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Urbini. I received an Urbini stroller to facilitate my review as well as thank me for my participation.
You may remember last year when I was sent an Urbini Touri stroller to review. As I said back then, it is a great stroller, and it was just perfect for us then, as we wanted and needed a compact stroller to help us schlep around Disney World and all the other tourist places we frequented when we lived in Florida. But once we had baby Chester in October after moving to Utah last summer, I knew that we’d be in need of a more luxurious travel system that could fit all the stuff we have to take for three little boys. So when I was offered the new Urbini Emi Travel System from Walmart, I nearly jumped up and down.
Like the Touri before it, the Emi is a really simple to use stroller. It opens and closes easily, though this time it has a hidden strap in the seat that you must pull up to fold. I’ll be honest – it took me an embarrassingly long time to figure it out, even with the directions! But after I found it, it really was a breeze. For such a good sized stroller, it folds very flat, and it doesn’t take up a huge amount of room in our trunk, which is a huge bonus.
It was delivered in a large box, and when I opened it, I found several pieces to put together. But it literally took under a minute to have it in full working order.
One of the things I didn’t like about the Touri was that it came with a very flimsy cup holder. As I’m someone who ALWAYS has a drink with me, I felt like it really needed something sturdier. The Emi has rectified that, for sure. Not only does it have an double cup holder at the handlebar, but it even has a kid cup holder and tray! This is huge!
I also REALLY love the basket underneath. It is roomy enough for a diaper bag and other paraphernalia, but it also has a zippered compartment where you can put your phone, wallet, purse, etc. It is so good!
I also really love the oversized canopy it comes with. It is perfect for super sunny days when you want the baby to be hidden from harmful rays. It does include a little window so you can still see him, though.
And while the car seat fits quite snugly in the stroller (making it easy to take baby from car to stroller without waking him!) it also has a wonderful five point harness to keep kids secured without the seat. I tried Chester out in it, just for fun, and I was really impressed with how well he enjoyed it!
The seat is adjustable, so you can lay your child completely flat when they’re tired, or you can sit them upright to allow them to look around. Whatever you choose, the kid will be comfy.
The Urbini Sonti car seat is amazing as well. It holds kids from 4 – 35 lbs and 32 inches long. Like our other Urbini car seat, it is LATCH equipped with a five point safety harness. It will keep your baby safe and secure. We haven’t actually put it in our car yet. We have been using our Urbini Petal car seat, and we plan on getting a second car soon, so the new seat will go in that. But you can see it here.
And can I just say how much I am LOVING this purple color? I know I have all boys, but it is just so bright and happy, and I love it. The stroller itself is safe for a child up to 50 lbs, so there’s no reason why Dexter and Dan can’t use it, as well.
In fact, I recently took Dexter and Chester to the park for a nice stroll, and Dex spent the entire time begging to ride in it! Obviously since Chester was already inside, I had to say no, but I took him out a bit later and let him ride. He doesn’t usually go in a stroller anymore, as he’s just turned four years old, but every once in a while when he’s tired, it’s handy to have a good place for him to relax.
All in all, we are LOVING this new travel system. It is already our go-to stroller, and I can’t recommend it enough. If you are in need of a modern, luxurious travel system for a new baby or an older toddler, this is just perfect for you. It maneuvers well, and it can handle all the terrain we’ve thrown at it so far. The price tag isn’t bad, either!
