Chicco Echo Stroller is a very cool and modern looking stroller. What makes this stroller specific is that it has colored frame which is very unique and stylish. The stroller weights 17 pounds (7.7 kg) and it can handle a maximum weight of 40 pounds (18.1 kg). This stroller has a dimension of 33″ x 18.5″ x 42″ when unfolded and 11″ x 13″ x 46.5″ when folded. This stroller costs only 74.99$-99.99$ (depends on which color you choose) on Amazon and around 80$ on Ebay which is a very good price for what you get. Beside its colored frame, I like adjustable foot rest and removable cup holder. Let’s dive into what the key features are.
2. Small Canopy
The stroller comes with a small canopy. You can unzip the back of the canopy to provide your child with better air circulation on a hot summer day. It would be nice if the canopy is a little bit bigger.
3. Tall Handle Bars
The handle bars are located at 42″ from the ground and they are covered with black heat resistant contoured foam which makes the grip very convenient unlike some umbrella strollers with thin plastic handle bars that you get blisters when pushing it.
4. Removable Cup Holder
It is always good to have drink by yourself especially if you are taking your baby in the walk during hot summer days. This addition to the stroller is very stable and it can perfectly hold cup of coffee or plastic bottle.
5. Spacious Seat
The seat is 12.5” wide so there are tons of space even for a tall toddler. The back of the seat is very lightly padded so the seat is not very comfortable.
6. Multi Position Recline
There are 4 different positions that this seat can be reclined to. It is one-hand lever recline and it is very easy to do. It is a deep recline, but it does not go all the way to a flat position.
7. Adjustable 5-point Harness
The stroller has adjustable 5-point harness (like most other umbrella strollers on the market) with padded shoulder straps.
8. Adjustable Foot Rest
The stroller has adjustable foot rest which is great feature for small babies. You can adjust foot rest to two different positions.
This stroller rolls on four double plastic wheels and front wheels are swivel. The stroller has small plastic wheels so it is not all-terrain stroller, but it goes very smooth on flat surfaces.
10. Lockable Front Wheels
This feature allow you to easily push this stroller through uneven surfaces such as grass. Although this stroller has lockable front wheels and front wheels suspension, it is not so good for uneven and bumpy surfaces.
11. Front Wheels Suspension
Suspension is great for smooth driving on bumpy surfaces, but I suggest you to stay away from them.
12. Parking Brakes
The stroller has two parking brakes, one on each rear wheel. You need to step on both of them to lock the wheels.
13. Medium Size Basket
It is frame supported and it is still accessible through the sides. Usually, umbrella strollers have small baskets so this feature is definitely a big plus for this stroller. It will be large enough for you to store some essentials like diapers, blanket and toys.
14. Easy Fold
Great thing about this stroller is that the folding is very easy and it has automatic lock.
15. Carry Strap
As you can see in the picture above, the stroller comes with carry strap which helps you a lot with carrying it around.
1. No Peek-a-boo Window
I like to watch what does my baby do during the ride so it would be nice to have a little peek-a-boo window in the back of the canopy.
2. Small Canopy
I would like to have a little bit bigger canopy or a sun visor for better sun and rain protection.

What other parents say about this stroller:
“This is a great stroller for those quick trips! I didn’t want a full size stroller as we don’t use it much, I usually just wear my babies in carriers or slings, but I walk my kids to the bus in the mornings and my toddler prefers to ride in the stroller now! It is easy to fold and unfold, it has a 5 point harness to keep my baby safe, and it also reclines in case she wants to lay down. I love the Chicco brand because of their great products and this stroller does not disappoint!”
“I went through 2 other strollers before getting this one which I kicked my self since this was the first one I wanted. This stroller is super light, we’ll made, and my 17 month old son loves it. I love the one handed recline feature, the weight, the compatibility, and the color. The basket holds a decent amount and I’ve hung a bag of groceries from the back and it’s managed to hold it. I’m very pleased after a few months that it’s still something I’m happy to use.”
“Love this easy to use stroller. This is the second one I’ve purchased. The first one is still great! I just bought a new one to have an extra for other family to use since this it is so convenient. I used it in the airport as I traveled across the country. Perfect”
