I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Urbini.
I received an Urbini stroller to facilitate my review

The next day after I had my beautiful baby-boy, I woke up to an exciting email – we are getting The new Urbini Emi Travel System! Great news considering that we gave away all the baby stuff years ago. I never owned a stroller system, because, based on my 7-year research, stroller systems was a typical rookie move – too heavy, not the best quality, and not maneuverable. However, the time has changed and many brands have entered the stroller market since I had my first child – I couldn’t wait to meet my new stroller.
Let me introduce you to the Urbini Emi Travel System, sold exclusively at Walmart
Does it look luxuriant and comes with a fancy name? Yes, for sure! Is it affordable? Yes (I bet you have bought at least one outfit that cost more than $249)! However, the biggest question stands – is it functional and reliable?
Wheels – Since this is not a jogging stroller, you can’t expect to go off-road with these wheels. However, they are definitely big enough to tackle the dirt, some snow and other less than perfect roads. I have no problems pushing it through the snow ankle deep. Front and rear suspension and the front wheels can be locked for less than perfect road condition.
The basket is relatively big and also includes a pouch with a zipper. If you plan on doing a quick grocery shopping, it can handle it without any questions.
Stroller seat interior is very inviting and reclines 180 degrees into a carriage – great option for little babies. I can see us spending some outdoor time in this stroller
Carseat interior looks very cozy and includes a head support, which is perfect for a newborn.
Canopy on both the car seat and the stroller seems durable. If used together (with the car seat on top of the stroller), two canopies can together cover your baby completely protecting him/her from the rain, wind, and snow.
Folding and unfolding. Unfolding is a two-hand operation. Make sure to have the brakes on to avoid unnecessary stroller movements. Folding is a brilliant one-hand operation. I am seriously impressed!
The stroller also comes with a removable snack tray for the child. While it is a great idea, you have to keep it removed while you use the stroller with a car seat for the infant. I wish I could store it in the zipped pouch under the stroller, but the pouch is about an inch shorter than the tray itself. I hope I don’t lose this tray by the time my child gets old enough to use it.
What do I like the best?
My single favorite feature is the quick fold mechanism – I never thought it was possible to fold a twenty-pound stroller with one finger in a matter of seconds. You can hold your baby in one hand and still fold the stroller with the other.
This system comes with the Sonti Infant Car Seat and is super comfortable, but as of now I haven’t found the additional car seat bases at the store. The base of the infant car seat is easy to instal.
For now me and my little baby are stuck inside, since Midwest weather has been anything but kind to us, but it doesn’t stop us to take naps in the stroller. However, the winter won’t stay here forever and we are ready for all kinds if adventures the Urbini Emi Travel System.
