Inglesina Avio Stroller Review

Thanks to Mom Central Consulting, I was able to review a new stroller, the Inglesina Avio Stroller, which I've been testing out with Smiley and I know I will come in very handy once DS3 arrives!

Inglesina introduces Avio: the ideal stroller for dynamic and resourceful parents.

Avio is thin (only 19.50'' wide), very compact when folded (only 36.60" high) and convenient (it opens and closes with just one hand)! The solid handle, unparalleled smoothness and an effortless push make Avio a smart stroller to better face the hustle and bustle of city life.

Fly in the city, with Avio!

I was fortunate to receive a Black Inglesina Avio Stroller, and DH helped me with the set up (I'm sure I could've done it myself, but with a big belly and two little rascals running around it would've taken me a long time to set up by myself).

Some of the pictured instructions were a bit confusing, but once the stroller was set up, Smiley was ready to test out the new "ride."

There are so many things I love about this stroller.

First of all, it comes with a handy storage basket underneath the stroller, a cup holder, a hood, and even a rain cover! There are also several optional accessories that can be purchased (e.g. carrycot, leg cover, etc.).

The ability to recline is great (my other stroller could not recline as far back as the Avio), and the one-handed fold feature makes opening and closing the stroller a breeze.

I admit that it took me a while to figure out how to use the one-handed fold properly, but once I figured it out, opening and closing the stroller is now a cinch.

The stroller was very easy to push and maneuver even with Smiley in it, even with one hand. I know this will come in handy as I picture myself having to hold Smiley's hand often while DS3 is in the stroller.

Unfortunately, the Avio does not adapt to many car seats without having to buy an adapter, but at least it does have the ability to work with one of the infant car seats I do have once I do purchase an adapter.

Also, I do wish the stroller had a little tray with a cup holder in the front of the stroller to hold snacks and a drink.

And although it seems to be a little bulkier than the other stroller we already have, the Avio appears to be lot sturdier as well as a lot more comfortable.

Overall the Inglesina Avio Stroller is easy to open, use, and close, and it stores easily and compactly in our trunk or in a closet. It has many great features and Smiley already enjoys riding it, and I know DS3 will too!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Inglesina and received an Avio stroller to facilitate this review.
