    Chicco C1?

    Hi, I'm new here and was hoping to get some info on the C1 if any one owns it. I currently own a Quest that I love, and a Graco mosaic that I hate. DD is ten months old and I want a new stroller for long shopping trips or walks around the neighborhood. I had a Cortina, but the closing mechanism busted. I like Chicco, but am reluctant to purchase a C1 because I've yet to see it in person.

    I've seen it and it was really nice. From what I saw it was comparable to my P3 but the handles don't lengthen like they do on the P3.

    There is a member here who posted about hers that she pushed her 6yr old in it and it drove really nice. Maybe she'll see this thread.

    If you do a search here you should find something as well.

    I have it...and love it. I recently made an album of a bunch of pics for it.

    The handles DO adjust, but don't extend.

    Here's the link the album:

    Re: Chicco C1?

    I've only used mine the once with dd2 because she was having difficulty walking because of a nerve inflamation. I used it to take her to the doctor's office...it handled well on pretty much everything! The only time I *may* have had a little trouble was on the combo of grass and pavers in our yard getting her to our van. But remember, she is heavy! One thing I don't like is that it is a bit of a pain to put anything big (like a purse) into the basket underneath. Makes me glad that I bought a Spark at Target when they were on clearance! It should hang on the back just fine. Sorry, I don't have any other experience using our C1... Still waiting to have a baby!

    I would recommend a stroller with air tires. It just makes the experience more pleasant LOL!

    What about a Baby Jogger City Series? GREAT for the mall, and glides over sidewalks, bumps, cracks, and paths.

    Just wanted to add that the C1 is sooo similar to the Peg P3. My sister got one and it seems really well made. I believe they have been discontinued now so it might be harder to find one.

    The C1 has been discontinued...so color choices are limited. But you can get a $279 stroller for less than $150 now....so it's a trade off.

    I haven't used my stroller outside of the house yet, but my BFF has the same one...and has used it on tons of surfaces with no problems...she even hoses it off.
