The day that a parent finds exactly the right stroller – especially if they’ve been suffering for months with the wrong one – is a momentous one! That’s the day that a stroller evangelist is born, and the Babyhome Emotion Stroller has many evangelists.
This inspiring little lightweight stroller has an unusual look that will attract plenty of ooohs, aaahs, and questions from friends and neighbors: the curved aluminum frame has a nifty “swoosh” to it, and it comes in a variety of bold colors that really stand out in a crowd. But of course, an excellent stroller can’t just look good – function means so much more than form! And the Emotion is a true performer.
The Babyhome Emotion Stroller has a slender frame and a petite footprint that make it a breeze to push your child through grocery store aisles and other tight spots. It’s a delight to push and turn, gliding smoothly on unusual wheels made with the same plastic as skateboard and rollerblade wheels (built to last!), mounted on ball bearings. Shock absorbers on all four stroller wheels iron out bumps in the road, and while the Emotion isn’t an all-terrain stroller, reviewers say that it can hold its own on gravel and grass.
Unlike most umbrella strollers, the Babyhome Emotion has a single padded handlebar, which means that the fold is a little different but unbelievably compact, and parents say it’s easy to stash or carry.
And kids will love riding in the Babyhome Emotion stroller, and not just because they’ll enjoy being seen in such a glamorous ride: the cozy padded seat reclines to 150 degrees, and the two-position footrest lets them put their feet up and relax. The Emotion doesn’t recline fully, but you can purchase infant car seat adapters, which means that you can use it from birth! (Without adapters, it’s recommended that you begin using it at 3 months.) The seat recline can be adjusted with one hand, so you don’t have to put down your iced coffee. Plus, the peekaboo window in the canopy closes with silent magnets, so there’s no noisy Velcro to wake your sleeping babe!
Reviewers also love the spacious, easy-to-use basket on the Emotion, which can carry up to 6.5 pounds of your extra stuff, and it comes with a rain cover and canopy extension to keep up with the day’s weather. Finally, as with all quality baby strollers, it has a five-point harness with shoulder pads for a comfy fit.
It never fails to amaze us how many terrific features the designers at Babyhome managed to cram into a stroller this compact and lightweight – we can’t emphasize enough how light and delightful this stroller is to carry and push. You’re going to love the way this stroller makes you feel!
narrow, light, smooth
Folds with seat out
I really wanted a pretty and lightweight stroller. My son was 2 when his umbrella started falling apart, I almost bought an UPPAbaby G-luxe, but decided to wait since the new baby was about to arrive and we were transitioning to a double stroller anyway (btw we went with UPPAbaby Vista+Piggyback board, my son is a huge fan of that arrangement). I'm glad I waited and when I started researching umbrella strollers again, the new lightweight product Babyhome Emotion already managed to accumulate some reviews, which were, unlike G-luxe, mostly positive. I love the light weight of it - 13lbs. I love how freakishly narrow it is, so now it's a breeze to fit thought the doors. I love the rollerblading wheels, other than sand it wheels well no mater how heavy the stroller is loaded, if I have to take a short cut, it will roll on grass and on dirt road, my previous umbrella didn't. It folds/unfolds well, although not a one hand mechanism. The canopy is short, there are extenders available online, but I didn't find the need for it yet. Due to our busy daily routine and the age of my youngest, 15 month old, the age when naps in a stroller become a struggle, I don't spend any significant amount of time in the sun in the middle of the day, we never use the recline feature either.
I want to buy a tray though, to make outdoor picnicking/snacking comfortable for her, she will run off and forget about the meal if she is unstrapped. I got a Skip Hop liner to minimize staining, and I am so happy I did, in addition to stains from food, she is all over the playground, and brings pounds of dust/sand/tan bark on her into the stroller :) I do plan to buy City Grips handle protectors, because I'd like the handle pad to last for 3 more years, the similar handles rip apart on many other brands, so you never know. I will invest in the foot muff Babyhome Inside as well, and really hope they bring in the bright yellow available in Spain now. I have the stroller in bright blue, so yellow muff would be a fun combo. Also will probably get a carry bag, as we plan to cross Atlantic twice in the next year.
Now my pros might very well be the cons for others. It's not a stroller for a baby, you won't fit a full baby diaper bag in the basket, and huge bag hanging on the handle will defy the purpose of the compact stroller. Narrow can become a problem for some parents, my 3.5 year old fits in and doesn't complain, but for some parents and toddlers that abundant space in the seat that umbrella Icoo Pluto or a jogging BOB give you is essential for strolling.
Even though I liked several colors, I couldn't settle on one for days. Blue is the one I managed to see in person, and loved it. I thought about neutral beige and brown, but without witnessing them in person, wasn't sure they'd do justice to the stroller. Black was absolutely out of questions, we use safe types of kids sunscreens that tend to stain everything black. I honestly prefer most of UPPAbaby Vista colors, their shade of yellow and denim are very pretty.
One handed steering, folds nicely, baby can recline
My son sat in this stroller in the store and wouldn't sit in any other! He loved it then and still does. It is a light weight narrow base stroller so it fits really well in the aisles of stores. You can recline your child so they can nap, but it doesn't allow the baby to lay all the way down. It is super easy to fold and when it does it is rather compact. it fits so well in my compact A3 trunk area too. Steering with this stroller is very easy. There is also a footrest that you can raise for your child.
