The best pram ever.
The best pram ever.we had Gt,select&elite with my first . I Absolutely love zip and it’s small &compact but stable as well.Due to having 4 wheels is easy to navigate with one hand . Reclines flat&has the best shade from all compact strollers on the market ,making it great $ worth every cent.My 5 years old still fits in it and have naps.
Best pram ever!
We purchased the City Mini Zip as our second pram. Our main pram was the City Mini GT which I also love. The Zip was the perfect travel companion taking us all over the world with our little one. It is nice and light, folds up compact and is the best compact pram! Highly recommended! It even became my favorite over the GT.
Purchased in March 2017 at Catch for $299.00.
This pram is a boot saver! It’s folds down smaller than a portacot, so having 5 kids I need boot space and I still have it. Push of a button and pull handle and it’s collapsed in 2seconds flat. No fiddling around, strong and sturdy pram as it’s 4 wheels. I would love to see them put pump up wheels like the GT models of other baby jogger models. From newborn to toddler it’s great and I feel the kids are safe. You can also buy the bracket separately to accomodate a capsule. Plus it comes with drink cup holder for the adult, winning!!
Purchased in December 2015 at Baby Haven for $360.00.

OK for light use, not the most comfy stroller
Overall this is a OK stroller, but not the most comfy for your little one.
- We've used this mostly while shopping or walking on even surface so far and it's very easy to maneuver, even with one hand.
- The pram is very lightweight so for me as a small Asian woman, I don't have any trouble with handling it. Folding and unfolding is pretty easy. It's compact when fold.
- The shade is very big
- It can recline to almost flat - which is useful when baby sleeps.
- Has a basket and coffee cup/bottle holder
Cons:...- Not the most comfy one. The seat is not very well cushioned. Also it can not sit up right. So this pram will mostly suitable for small babies, not when they get bigger and want to explore the world. - It's not reversible ( which I didn't realise when I bought it) As a first time mum, I don't have much experience with other prams. But if I have another chance I wouldn't buy it again.
Purchased in August 2018 at Toys R Us / Babies R Us.
Everything you need in a pram!
This pram is absolutely fantastic, its lightweight, onehanded fold, easy to manouvre and very stable with 4 wheels. Used it for years and easy clean too. Great quality. We tried a big bulky pram (different brand) before knowing what you really need in a pram and then after another bub we decided to get a 2 seater city select, a fantastic pram for 2, but we still come back to the city mini longterm as it is pure convenience and ease.

Compact pram that takes a capsule
The fold takes a bit to get used to but once you master that you have what I believe to be one of the best prams on the market.
I used a Maxi Cosi Mico AP Capsule with my Baby Jogger Zip using adaptors for the first few months and then put bub in pram which reclines almost flat for naps.
It’s easy to manoeuvre and so slim, can fit through anywhere which meant I could even take bub into standard change rooms.
Now, I purchased the tour and sold my zip as I wanted something to take on airline which don’t get me wrong can be convenient. ...Although the Tour is quite flimsy... the Zip is so much more sturdy, the sunhood is 100 times better too and now we are having our second baby I need a capsule again so I just bought another Zip and sold my Tour. Also some airlines let you take Zip onboard. So happy to have the Zip back in my life.
Its good and convenient. It has shock absorbers so not too stressful for the baby. We havent found anything inappropriate in the pram. I would have prefdered to have a bottle holder just in case when the baby is required to be fed and when taking a pause there is no place to keep the bottle holder
I got this pram as a gift I loved the idea of how compact it folds up.
I liked it for a little bit then I got over it.
Reasons I did like it
- its easy to push with one hand (most of the time)
-it fits in the back of my toyota prado witch is a small space.
-I like the idea of the big sunshade.
Reasons I don't like it
-Its quite ugly compared to other prams on the market.
-It can be hard to fold up ...
Awesome stroller, worth the $!
Great stroller! Feels really solid for such a light compact stroller. Can easily steer one handed. Super easy to fold and unfold. Great for big babies, has a high max weight limit. Basket a little hard to get to but such a minor complaint. Great maneuvering capability. Awesome travel stroller too, meets carry on requirements for most airlines & it’s so light! Best baby purchase we’ve made.
Such a portable little pram
I’ve used this pram since birth for 4.5 mths, lays flat for newborn and can easily move up back of seat so baby can look around when walking around.
Folds down simply with the press of a button and pull of one strap. It only takes up a little room in the boot.
Great pram for walking around the shops and on foot paths,

Love this stroller!
I use this stroller to keep in the car/for when we go away and totally love it, possibly more than our larger pram! I think it's sturdier then most strollers of this style, especially given it's light weight. Ours has been on a few flights and down some rough paths and it's still handling well. It's not a pram for regular off-road use though -it's a bit bumpy/rattly on rougher paths, but again, you can't expect a small stroller with little wheels to do that well down a rough path!
It's super light and easy to lift and folds up nice and small. ...
Easy to use and collapse
I've had the Baby Jogger City Mini for 8 months and have used it everyday. Whether a long or short outing this pram has been great to use. It moves smoothly, it's not too heavy and quite compact when collapsed. I also like how easy it is to collapse using one hand. I really like the way the harness straps works. If little one is asleep I don't have to try move arms to get free I just unclick harness and it comes apart in two spots so no need to disturb baby.
Fantastic compact stroller with pram features
I LOVE this stroller.
I recently purchased it with baby no 5 on the way and limited boot space.
I folds so simply, and very compact i have my boot back!
While waiting for baby to arrive i have been using it for my 3.5yo and am impressed with seat size, stroller weight and ease of pushing with him in it.
I love that this stroller has an adjustable footrest for a smaller bub and offers a recline to suit from newborn.
The seat also offers a bit of padding and i would be happy to use it without a liner. ...The back area rolls up to expose a mesh breathable area where you can see sleeping baby. The seat recline isnt super straight but my 3.5 yo is happy. The harness is easily adjustable and holds well. Pretty good hood coverage for bub. Interesting fabric use for hood but assume its to keep it light weight and foldable Its not great off road but it was never designed to used off road. The only disappointment i have with this stroller is that they dont offer capsule adapters to suit the britax unity which is the capsule i have. But Baby Jogger do for their other prams. They do have capsule adapters for other capsules. I would love to see the travel bag included with the pram purchase and a peek a boo window in the hood. I have also purchased the belly bar for this stroller and quite like it as an added accessory. There is no snack tray for bub available as the pram wouldnt fold. However a parent cup holder does come with the stroller. Would definitely recommend this stroller.
Perfect - love this stroller
This is a very light pram easy to maneuver - easy to fold!! And most importantly folds into a small stroller. Perfect for all ages as it fits larger toddlers. This is my 3rd stroller and best one by far!! I found baby jogger to be very reliable and sturdy
I love love love this pram! I have no problem zipping through the shops or park. Bub doesn't fill any bumps or rocks while in it. Very wide and spacious - suits tall babies! Basket is big but hard to get in & out of. Only downside is that the attachments are quite expensive but most universal ones do fir it!
Questions & Answers
Hi! Our front wheels area is not clicking into place when unfolded. Any suggestions?
I had to take my seat off to wash it and for the life of me can’t remember how to attach all the straps back ? Can anybody help me please !
Don't worry, you are not the first person this has happened to! Lots of straps on the City Mini Zip make it a little confusing.
Please find the link below to a great video for removing the fabric. simply follow the steps reverse.
Hopefully that helps you.

It didn’t help me much. I can’t really see how to put the strap back in that criss cross style it was originally in
can the city mini glider board be used on the zip
Unfortunately no, it is not compatible as there is no where to attach the board onto the stroller.
