  1. I love the canopy. Perfect for keeping the pacific northwest rain off my babe. I also appreciate the sturdiness of the stroller and especially not having to worry about flats. I am always paranoid about flat tires. I carry the kitchen sink around in my stroller and the Baby Jogger is my perfect fit.

  2. I really like everything about this stroller. The full recline is wonderful and the curved basket is perfect for larger diaper bags that I can never seem to get into other strollers.
    Magnetic closure on the footrest and the peek-a-boo window are changes from previous models.

  3. Favorite feature of the 2012 Baby Jogger City Elite: Large Mesh Window
    New Features for 2012: Magnetic footrest with stand to elevate & keep footrest extended/elevated; New & improved fabric

  4. I absolutely love the fold. It is so easy and not having to get down on the floor to fold it is so nice! I also love the hand brake and peekaboo windows. Watching the video again just makes you fall in love with all the great features.

  5. I love the weight capacity so that if I ever needed to put my 4 yr old in there he would fit comfortably. One new thing this new model has is the fabric, looks so comfy too.

  6. Omg the city elite would be perfect for us! My son is 4 years old and some times we want to go on walks but he so big he doesn’t fit in any stroller because he is so tall. I love it in the sand color.

  7. Oops – have a helper sitting on my lap here and we accidentally entered as blogging about the giveaway, but I don’t have a blog to post it on! Can’t find a way to go back and switch it… how can the entries for blogging be removed?

  8. I love the storage, the canopy with all the peak a boo windows, the foot rest and the nice window on the back of the seat. Some of the changes are the basket and the foot rest.

  9. I love everything about the City Elite! Love the adjustable foot rest. One of the changes for the 2012 model is the peek-a-boo windows have magnetic closures instead of velcro.

  10. The Elite is my DREAM stroller, so it’s hard to pick a favorite feature, but if I had to I’d say that I LOVE the one-handed fold! My favorite change for 2012 is the upgraded basket with the curved back bar and elastic sides.

  11. My favorite feature of the City Elite is the easy one handed fold and all terrain tires. Love the new hand brake and larger seat for 2012!

  12. One of my favorite features is how easy it opens and closes and the automatic lock. The changes for 2012 are the magnetic peak a boo windows, the magnetic footboard, the basket in the back and on the sides and that the frame is all black.

  13. love the city elite…love the fact that it’s sturdy, roomy and the mesh window for the warm weather…

  14. I like the adjustable handle and the canopy windows. A couple of changes for the 2012 are the upgraded fabric and the magnetic foot rest.

  15. I really like the folding and amenities such as the hand brake and swivel lock being on the stroller and not on wheels, and forever tires not needing air. One of the changes for 2012 was curving the bottom basket to allow better access to the basket, plus making the side entrance elastic for better access.

  25. I love the tires and how easy it is to lock the front wheel to take a light jog. What a great stroller! One of the changes is the rounded bar for the bottom basket so you can actually use it.

  26. I like that the weight capacity is 75 pounds so that my now 3 year old could ride in it if she needed to when she was a little older and not be too big. The easy fold mechanism is nice too! We used to have this stroller (2010 model) and loved it but parted with it because of needing a double, but now we could def use a single again :o) New change is the upgraded fabric that is more like the city select!

The new features for 2012 are the opening back when it is fully reclined for a sleeping baby to enjoy a nice breeze, and the easier access basket. I love that you can put items in the basket from the back and the sides. I’d absolutely love to win this!!!

  134. I need this sooooo badly. My 2 yr old has grown out of every stroller we’ve had and just broke her arm. I need something to keep her contained for the next month or so!

  135. i really like this stroller:) my favorite features are the parking brake and the updates on the 2012 model like the magnets instead of the velcro and the curve basket, for easy access.

  136. New feature is different fabric….it looks soft and snuggly in the video! And LOVE the high weight limit of the jogger

  137. I love the easy fold and auto lock! One thing that has been changed, that I learned about is the curved down bar, allowing for easier access to cargo basket.

  138. I love that this seat can accommodate an older/bigger child. I also like the footrest that can be used for smaller ones. A few upgrades…the fabric and the magnetic hold for the footrest.

  139. I like the wide range of size kids that can fit in this stroller with the high canopy! The fabric has been upgraded in this 2012 version!

  140. I love how easily it folds and unfolds. I also love the large canopy for those really sunny days. One of the changes I learned from watching the video is the curved bar on the basket.

  141. As with every Baby Jogger product, I love the amazing fold. And I appreciate that they made the basket more accessible with the 2012 model!

  142. I love the adjustable handle so it can accommodate me (5’5) and my husband (6’3) as well as the break being up on the side and the front one being a one click. So easy. A chance they made was the curved bar on the back of the basket

  143. I love that the it can hold a larger child, up to 75 lbs! Also love the 2012 changes to the diaper bag storage basket, so nice with the curved bar in the back and the elastic side.

  144. I love the updated fabric and the magnets! All the little things that make an awesome stroller even awesomer!!! I would have gotten it as my double but it doesn’t fit through doors….

  145. I have always loved the Elite’s forever air tires and the adjustable foot rest with magnetic closure for 2012 is great!

  146. I love the recline positions. I know I could put my newborn in this stroller. I also learned that the 2012 has a different material and a curved bar on the basket!

  147. Favorite feature is how easy it folds and unfolds. I also love the adjusting handle. One change for 2012 is the curved bar for the storage basket.

  148. Pinterest: Erica Solomon
    I love the parent storage console, the hood, the fold, the tires, just about everything. Oh please pick me!

  149. besides the fact that its an all terrain stroller, the easy fold is makes it hard not to love! the new curve bar feature on the basket is great!

  150. I love the Baby Jogger line. My favorite new thing for 2012 is the magnetic closure on the footrest and peek-a-boo window!

  151. My favorite Baby Jogger feature is the one-hand fold, of course, but my favorite feature special to the Elite is the awesome 12″ tires. I love the magnetic closures on the 2012, especially the way they hold back the vented side panels in the canopy.

  152. Love that the stroller has a mesh window for nice breezy days. Also love that the 2012 changes include a curved basket – great for big diaper bags!

  153. I love that the handle bar is fully adjustable for any height! One of the upgrades for 2012 that you mentioned was that the frame is now black which makes the colors pop. Also, the curved basket bar, the upgraded fabric, and magnets instead of Velcro on the foot rest.

  154. The new curved bar of the basket is terrific for giving it better storage. I’d LOVE to win this stroller. I love the huge canopy, how easy it is to maneuver, and the one handed fold.

  155. Love the big storage basket and the very large canopy. New item for 2012 is the upgraded fabric and bar across storage basket.

  156. i love that it is roomy enough even for older children (my older children always want to ride while my toddler wants to walk). i’m glad to know if they hitch a ride, they won’t break it.

    very excited about the new upgraded fabric and the accessible basket with the curved bar…

  157. I am in love with this stroller. I think the hand brake and curved basket are great features along with the parent organizer. I have my fingers crossed that I win this one!!

  158. i love the fold and my favorite new feature is that the Seat now reclines to almost completely flat.

  159. I love this stroller especially the new the tires and the lightweight and easy fold! Bonus for the easier access to basket. Follow you on Pinterest (nmski) and Youtube (TheNmski)!!

  160. I love the one handed folding feature, and the best new feature is the curved bar for easy access to the underseat storage.

  161. I love that the stroller will carry a large child. Also, the footrest has been changed to a magnetic closure (rather than velcro)!

  162. Love all the changes that were made to this stroller, especially the easier access to the basket! I also love the ease in changing the wheel to a locked position, the hand brake, the one hand fold, and pretty much everything about it!

  163. I have the City Elite double and need a single so bad! I love everything about it! It folds easy, can accomodate bigger children and the canopy is large. The new features are the curved bar for the basket and the elastic on the sides. They also added magnets to the foot rest instead of the velcro. I can’t stand the velcro on the foot rests :/ All major improvements!

  164. This looks like an awesome jogging stroller! I love that you don’t have to pump the tires!! I own a jogging jogging stroller now, and it’s such a pain when they’re so low and I’m not near a pump. And the new features are the curved basket at the bottom for easier access and that they use magnets instead of velcro for the openings.

  165. I love that there is a curved bar at the bottom of the stroller to allow you to stuff a bigger diaper bag underneath without struggling. Coincidentally, this is also a changed feature for 2012! LOVE IT!

  166. Thank you so much for all your informative youtube videos!!! So helpful. Whenever I am interested in a stroller, I automatically search your youtube videos! Thank you babygizmo!!!

  167. wow- my favorite feature of this stroller is definitely the small size it folds to- and how easy it is to fold- and I LOVE the new fabric choices for 2012 an the peek a boo windows!

  168. The feature that I love about the Baby Jogger City Elite Single is that it will hold larger kiddos & the automatic lock when it folds. One change would be the elastic side on the basket.

  169. Love that they have curved the bar on the basket to make accessing it easier. Best feature is the peekaboo window on the sides of the canopy. How cool! Great tires (who want to pump them up continuously anyway) and the footrest is great also. Love this stroller.

  170. Ok, I forgot to say which change I love for the 2012 version. In addition to my favorite features, the super easy fold and the oversized canopy, I love that they made the basket accessible for 2012. I travel heavy, so accessible storage is a must!

  171. Would love this stroller! I would be getting so much more exercise with it 🙂
    I love the weight capacity so I could use it longer than most strollers. One of the new features for 2012 is the curved bar in the basket area, makes it easier for getting bulky items in!

  172. This stroller is perfect! Love the large canopy & comfy seat! And the pressure neede to unbuckle (I have a very curious baby who would try to open that ) 😉
    New features : the fram color, new fabrics, and the foot rest can close on the bottom magnetically instead of velcro, it can also be propped up for little babies.

  173. I have two favorite features. I really love the fold, it has to be the easiest out there. The canopy is incredible, especially for us in Miami, Fl. I am in desperate need of an all terrain stroller, so this is really a great stroller all the way around!

  174. My favorite feature is probably all the magnetic closures for the windows, etc. Or maybe the forever-filled air tires. One of the changes for 2012 is the curved bar behind the basket and elastic sides too.

  175. I thought i already submitted my answer but it must not have worked?? Anyway…my favorite feature of the BJ City Elite is the high weight limit. I also love the large canopy and the automatic lock. One feature that is upgraded for the new 2012 is the curved bar that allows easier access to the under storage basket.

  176. My favorite feature is the large seat and higher weight capacity. The best change is access to the basket underneath.

  177. I forgot my details…
    I love the easy fold of the city strollers. Change for 2012 – the curved bar of the storage bin that my City Mini misses.

  178. I LOVE the new easy access basket, and magnetic closures for all the peekaboo windows! If this stroller had been out when I was buying a year ago I would have gotten it! I really like everything about it!

  179. I have so many favorite features!! The high weight limit, the automatic lock, and the large canopy with many peekaboo openings are probably my most favorite features. One thing that is updated on the new 2012 model is the curved bar that allows easier access to the under storage basket. Also the fabric is upgraded more like the city select.

  180. I love the easy fold. Love the new curved bar on the basket to make it easily accessible.

  181. Changes for 2012 include upgraded fabric, the magnets on the footrest, changes in access to the basket. My favorite feature is the magnet closures on the window (no noise  and the all-terrain (forever air) tires.

  182. I like how the canopy comes down in front, not just above the head of the the child. A new feature is the curved bar/upgraded basket access.

  183. Love the reclining seat, air filled wheels (smooth ride) and the changes they made for the basket. I also think you said it sits a bit more upright this year?:)

  184. Oh love the Elite, love that is can hold a small kiddo, but yet when my big kid gets tired of walking she can jump in too. Love that they made the basket accessible for 2012 and all the magnetic closures instead of Velcro.

  185. My fav feature is the padded 5 point harness that is easy for a parent but diffucult for a child to unbuckle.
    A change is the footrest that has magnetic closures.

  186. I love that they changed the bar behind the basket, and I love the break, on the on I have the brake is still down by the basket! I also love the wheels! Such a wonderful stroller I would love an upgrade!

  187. Love everything about this stroller! I love the new fabric and magnetic foot rest, and great tires! Follow on FB & Pinterest 🙂

  188. Love that it is all terrain. Have a crappy all terrain, and would love to change it out to a good one like this. Also love that the bar is curved in the 2012 model. Have a city mini double, and hate the straight bar!
    You Tube and Pinterest m.imming.balangero through Google.

  189. Love the elite! I love that they finally made it an actual usable basket! That was my one drawback when looking at it and decided to go with another stroller. Now I regret it! My stroller is a pain to fold and the elite is a dream!!! Love the fabric & the magnetic closures!!!!! I love this stroller!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  190. My favorite feature is the fold. Changes I love are the new fabric, the parent consol and the new accessible basket.

  191. I LOVE that it accommodates a larger child (75lbs). I also like that they changed the basket to be more easily accessible.

  193. Hi- One of my favorite features of this stroller is that it has a high weight limit. I have a huge toddler and I love that I could use this for her for a while on long trips! Something that is new this year is non velco foot rest! And the curved bar for getting into the basket.

  194. Oops, forget to mention my favorite upgrade has to be the fold in the basket to get my diaper bag in easier and the side access as well.

  195. I love the parent compartments near the handle, so useful. The 2012 has upgraded fabric, black frame and an easier to access to the basket.

  196. I like how they put magnetic closures instead of velcro. Perfect for when you have a sleeping baby. The fabric on the 2012 is an upgrade from the 2011 model.

  197. I love the run away strap and how it is secured to the base of the stroller, also the new fabric and all the peekaboo windows and ventilation!

  198. I love the easy fold on City strollers – you can’t beat the one-handed pull. Changes for 2012 – I love that the bar to the storage bin is curved – makes it so much easier to put things in!

  199. oh NO!!! i was so decided on the B Ready 2012. but now HELLO City Mini! many things i like about this stroller … the stow away wind guard when you lay the seat all the way back for more air flow on hot days (yes, it does actually get hot here in Portland) and the two side vents on the canapy. The curved bar on the storage below. My mouth hung open when she folded the stroller!! I mean come on IMPRESSIVE! and then almost no effort to reopen it. Theres more … but i am truly suprised by this stroller.

  200. OK, I LOVE how you can put that footrest up with the cool little stand. Some of the updated features are the fabric and magnetic pieces and the elastic sides of the underneath basket. great stroller – hope i win!!

  201. Love the new curved bar in the storage basket for our bigger diaper bag! This would be a perfect stroller for us.

  202. I desperately need a jogging stroller and the City Elite looks perfect for me. A few of the 2012 changes are the upgraded fabric, magnetic closures and the bar on the basket is curved for easier access.

  203. I love how sophisticated, sturdy, and compact all at the same time. It far beats the clunky alternatives out there. I would love one!

  204. The large canopy is my favorite feature! One of the changes is the closures. They are now magnetic instead of the velcro 🙂

  205. I have the old city mini, and I love the accessible basket (upgrade!) and the wheels on this one. love the canopy, as always!

  206. I love the high weight limit, this would be awesome for my disabled 7 year old, his wheelchair will NOT go through mulch or gravel, making trips to a lot of our favorite places almost impossible, a great change is the easier to access basket

  207. Thanks for giving away such great baby gear! Love the easy fold, large canopy, and large seat on this stroller… also love the upgraded fabric for 2012 and easier access to the basket!
