The Urbini Omni Plus Travel System is a sleek, stylish stroller with included car seat and base, all for under $200. Sold exclusively at Walmart, this is the Buick of strollers. But not like those old Buicks your grandpa used to drive – instead, this is like the new models that young, cool, hip people drive.
With an affordable price tag, this transport unit comes in a variety of colors and rivals the more expensive systems on the market.
Pros & Cons
Small under-storage basket
Somewhat limited maneuverability
Cruise Around in Style
This bassinet stroller travel system comes with features every new parent will appreciate, especially the cup holders. Mama needs her java. Besides a prominent spot for mom’s coffee, there’s a stay-in-car base with a belt lock system that anchors the base to your car, a 5-point harness on the stroller, and a lightweight design to make taking your little one anywhere a breeze.
Does NASA know about this stroller technology? They really should. Could help them on Mars the next time they send Matt Damon.
Best Travel Stroller? I’m Leaning Towards YES
My Urbini Omni review is a glowing one (minus some downsides that I’ll get into below). I love that the Urbini Travel System allows me to use either the car seat or the stroller at any age. One feature I’m gaga over is that the handle is adjustable to accommodate most heights. You know how it is, mommas. We’re different sizes and the Urbini recognizes that.
Moreover, I often bring my son to class with me, and because he needs space to sleep, we leave the infant car seat part in the car and use the stroller as a bassinet. Using the stroller like this has also made changing diapers and outfits much easier since I didn’t have to search for a clean spot – which is the bane of many mother’s existence.
The stroller also folds flat into my trunk, so it’s easy to take where I need to go. Additionally, I didn’t feel bad adding this item to my registry because I knew it wasn’t as expensive as the other strollers on the market – despite having the same safety features I was looking for.
Growing Baby, Growing Stroller
I love that the Urbini Omni Plus Travel System is a stroller that I can continue to use as my baby grows. As much as we wish they’d stay small and cute forever, eventually they become toddlers – who are also small and cute but with more tantrums. The travel system comes with the stroller seat, frame, car seat, and car seat base, all for the same price. However, the price varies depending on the color of the travel system you choose, like a Buick.
I really appreciate that the stroller seat and car seat can either face towards you or towards the world. If you have a little one that loves to see people and say hi, this stroller makes it safe and possible to do so.
Regardless of which way your child faces in the stroller, it comes with a large canopy that also has a transparent peephole for you to keep an eye on your little one at all times. As I mentioned above, there’s the cupholder perfect for holding baby’s bottle, water or mom’s coffee on those tiresome days when you take your little one for a stroll but need a boost.
The Urbini also comes with comfort features for baby such as a full-seat recline and a preemie insert for newborns of any size.
The Minor Disappointments of This Majorly Awesome Stroller
While the Urbini Omni Plus Travel System is a great stroller, there are a few issues. For example, the storage basket underneath is small, so don’t plan on being able to fill it while shopping, unless you are shopping for very tiny groceries.
Additionally, the wheels on the stroller may not be the best for maneuverability. This may not be a problem for some people considering all the other amazing features, but it is definitely something to take note of depending on your lifestyle. If I could change anything about the stroller, I would add bigger wheels that have a better turning capability. It can be a pain sometimes when I am trying to turn the corner and the wheels lock up in the process.
Another downside to the travel system is the quality of the fabric. It’s not horrible, but it clearly isn’t top quality either. Personally, I would prefer a softer fabric. I’ve been using the stroller system a lot during the winter months, so my son is often covered with blankets. My biggest concern is the fabric may irritate him in the summertime when we don’t have the convenience of blankets to protect his skin.
Urbini Omni Plus Travel System Review Verdict: A-
The Urbini Omni is for parents who are on-the-go and need a travel system that is still affordable. If you’re a mama that goes to lunch, meetings, or lives in Target, this could be the very stroller you’re looking for.
This travel system is a must-have for mamas who are on a budget and still want the extravagant look with all of the safety features. One of the greatest benefits of a travel system is that you won’t have to buy another stroller, as the Urbini grows with your child. And while the wheels aren’t always the best for navigating curbs, I plan to continue to use my Urbini stroller system as long as possible.
As a mom that is constantly moving with my child, this travel system lets me take my baby along easily and conveniently. I highly recommend it to all mothers who are looking for an affordable, lightweight, and stylish travel system stroller that will last from newborn though toddler. And when NASA starts using them on Mars, you’ll be ahead of the curve.
