The Blink

Blink  The BlinkThe Blink is an appropriate name for the new, lightweight, high-performing stroller that Britax recently put out.  It is quick and easy to maneuver.  My little girl is comfortable in it for long periods of time.  By now, I am something of a stroller connoisseur.  I have reviewed a number of lightweight, quick-folding strollers for this column in the past.  My favorite attribute of the Britax Blink is that it incredibly durable.  In fact, I can say that it is one of the best constructed lightweight stroller that I have reviewed. These qualities are truly essential for anyone in the market for a new baby item.  The last thing you want is something that falls apart just when you need it most.

My Britax Blink arrived just in the nick of time.  The fancy, impossibly bulky, heavy-duty stroller that I paid a fortune for had just broken.  And I’m not just talking about a popped tire.  The frame literally fell apart.  I will not mislead you and pretend that I lightly use my strollers or that I treat them delicately.  I do not.  I need a stroller that will keep up with my frequent 4-mile walks over uneven terrain.  Eliza is nearing 18 months now and although I know many babies her age are restless when sitting for long periods of time she does not seem to mind the long walks we frequently embark upon.  While the Blink is not billed as a heavy-use stroller I have been using it for several weeks now and it has more than withstood our adventures.

Some of the key features of the Britax Blink are that it has all-wheel suspension, which makes for a smooth ride.  It is also extremely easy to fold and unfold and the breaks lock with one slide of your foot.  The Britax Blink is lightweight but has a heavy-duty construction and a 55lbs child weight capacity.  The canopy is large and easily covers baby from the sun, while the storage pouch is just the right size for a phone, wallet keys and water bottle.  If you need a bit more space for things you pick up along your journey the basket underneath the seat is there to maximize the amount you can carry.

The Blink is a top-of-the-line, super-convenient, durable stroller.  And perhaps nicest of all – at less than $150 – it won’t break the bank.
