If you’re looking for a new stroller that’s easy to use, then look no further than the Thule Shine City Stroller.  The Thule Shine comes in five colors: Alaska Blue on Black, Black on Black, Misty Rose on Black, Aluminum/Gray Melange, Aluminum/Mallard Green. We reviewed Alaska Blue on Black. We’re reviewing the Alaska Blue on Black one today. The stroller is very compact and lightweight to the point where you can push and fold it with one hand. It has a padded seat that’s both reversible and reclinable. You don’t have to worry about your baby outgrowing the stroller as the Thule Shine can be used from when your baby is a newborn to a toddler. If you want to use this stroller for your newborn, you can pair it with the Thule Shine Bassinet, Thule Newborn Inlay, Thule Newborn Nest or Thule Shine Infant Car Seat Adapter, which are all sold separately. The stroller’s ventilated canopy has UPF50+ protection and it comes with a rain cover. The adjustable leg rest allows your baby to sit up straight or lay down depending on how far back their seat is reclined. The handle bar can be used for a parent of any height as it’s completely adjustable and the easy step-in step in the front of the stroller makes it safe for an older child to climb in on their own​. I absolutely love how compact this stroller is, seeing as how I have a Crosstrek which is a small car and it fits nicely in my trunk while still leaving room for other things. It was also incredibly easy to put together. I loved that it came with a rain cover as that means that I don’t have to use an umbrella if I want to take this out on a rainy day and the seat can recline to an almost flat position which is perfect because Riley can nap on the go. However, the rain cover was difficult to put on, so be sure that the canopy is open so it’s being pulled away from your child. Also, the stroller is a bit difficult to fold; you have to push to one of the side buttons first before you press the middle button before you fold it. Otherwise, you can end up pulling on the handle continuously.
