    Evenflo X Sport??

    Anyone know anything about this stroller. I found one at Walmart on clearance for $20. Worth it for a backup stroller?

    Thanks

    Re: Evenflo X Sport??

    I bought one last year for $50 at Baby Depot. I really like it for my 2 year old. I hate it for my 8 month old. I like that the shade can be adjusted to wherever the sun is.

    For the Baby, I don't like that it doesn't have shoulder straps. BabyS likes to lean forward, trying to fall out

    It doesn't recline, but that doesn't bother me at all for either kid. I think the wheels are a little nicer than on other cheapo umbrella strollers. Much more portable than my Chicco Cortina.

    But for $20, I think it's great.

    ETA- is it for your 5 year old in your siggy? He may be way too big. I couldn't imagine butting J in the stroller.

    Thanks for the input. It is for my 10 month nephew that I watch occasionally. I want a stroller to have around if needed.

    Have you ever put him in something w/o shoulder straps? I know in BabyS' travel swing and bouncy seat she leans forward to fall out. Same as she does in the stroller.

    LOL, though I am tempted to make my own shoulder straps. All of a sudden I feel like the Dad using bungee cords on a carseat

    Re: Evenflo X Sport??

    I think I have the X Sport Plus. Same thing but with adjustable handlebar length. It's lightweight, easy to fold/unfold. It fits in both trunks (Civic and Grand Am, though it only fits the Grand Am if the handles are set shorter). Handles pretty well, IMO.

    This past week DD learned to climb into the stroller all by herself. Problem is, she was climbing up the front and putting a foot or two into the storage basket. The storage basket isn't exactly designed to hold a 21 pound kid, but it held up all right. There's some signs of stress on it if I look closely enough, but it didn't rip out.

    The front wheels come up onto the shade when it's folded. So now the shade has mud marks on it. It doesn't bother me enough to do anything about it. It could have been avoided if I put a grocery bag over the two front wheels while folding it.

    I do like that the shade can be put in any position. I didn't have that on my full-size stroller. I wish it had a 5-pt harness, because DD likes to lean forward and touch the front wheels. She's in no danger of falling out with the harness tightened reasonably (not even tight, just not super loose) but her finger nails sure get dirty and I'm worried that one of these days she'll get hurt doing it.
