Some of our Village moms recently reviewed the Thule Spring, a fantastic everyday stroller, with a quick and easy one-hand fold for active parents and parents looking to downsize from a larger convertible stroller.
CeCe B. A.: Great news for tall parents! After a few weeks with our Thule, we are absolutely in love. The stroller itself is light, easy to maneuver, and quite intuitive to put together/ adjust— But the very best part are the strides that my husband (6’4”) and I (5’7”) can take while walking our daughter. Different from any other stroller we have tried, we have never once stepped on the undercarriage/basket or had to hold our arms at a weird angle to push. It’s the perfect take-anywhere stroller— Zoo, park, or even for pushing your tired child around the house 😉
Krysta H.: The Thule Spring is exactly the quality you would expect from the well-known outdoor brand. The out-of-the-box setup was easy, intuitive, and straightforward. The wheels handle all different terrains – road, sidewalk, woodchips, gravel, cobblestones, etc very well especially on large bumps where other strollers with 2 front wheels get caught up. The fold and unfold are simple and take seconds. It stores very flat compared to other strollers I have tried, however, the height is tall. We love the telescoping and cushioning on the handlebar. The canopy is HUGE which my son loves to keep the sun out of his eyes, and I love for the UV protection and the vented mesh section lets us keep eyes on him. My 2.5-year-old loves how easy it is to climb into all by himself, and I love the 60lb weight limit which is higher than most comparable strollers. The only negative is that my 5-year-old might outgrow the head height before the weight!
Installation – The stroller came in a very sturdy box and was easy to open and remove the contents with only one adult. Minimal pieces and easy to understand instructions made putting the wheels on a breeze and it was fairly simple to figure out how to connect the canopy of the stroller.
Ease of use and size – The stroller is very versatile and can accommodate both my 7 month old baby and also my 4 year old toddler with no issues! I was at first admittedly intimidated by the five point harness but have grown quickly to love the design as it’s easy to get the baby out without twisting arms to get them out of loops like other strollers. Once familiar it’s really handy to get the bottom prongs in place and snap in the top two to secure. I was debating getting a double stroller now with two children but seeing as my toddler sometimes will want to walk this is great to have and works for both children, I am so happy with the single seat option. The stroller is light enough that I feel comfortable collapsing and storing it in the compact position by myself. Ideal for city living.
Suspension – stroller is easy to wheel around and the handle is great for taller and shorter adults to push. I found it easy to maneuver within my apartment halls, through doors, and also outside with a single hand, if needed. I also like the location of the safety break, red and easy to see. The stroller is pretty smooth and has minimal bumps on the city sidewalks.
Canopy and seat – This is one of the largest extending canopies I have seen in a stroller which is great! My previous stroller had s smaller canopy and didn’t always cover my child’s body and I was concerned about sun exposure. With the spring, I don’t worry about this and the peek a boo vent on top lets me see my child easily and create additional air circulation. The seat recline is one of the easiest to use just pinch and pull to adjust to a sitting or lie down position and various degrees which is nice because other strollers have preset angles which may not work for all situations.
