Halloween Tike

Tike Tech City X3 Stroller Review

Look, up in the sky...It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's SUPER StrollerPrince, in his jack o' lantern orange Halloween Tike Tech!

The school party is just the beginning of the Halloween week-end. It will be followed by another party at night, trick or treating, Dia de los Muertes, and more..

So it's a good thing the City X3 has a lot of storage space, both in the large rear seat pocket, and in the basket.
The 20.5" seatback is taller than most, and SP, um, "Superbaby" has plenty of headroom under the canopy. The front napper bar makes a great footrest, and the ample canopy provides plenty of shade.

Of course, if you want, you can push it back. Which we will do tonight, since we will be out when the sun is down.

Now the big night is nigh. The night all the little ghouls, ghosts, and goblins await...OK, the night all the little Hannah Montanas, Michael Jacksons, and Barack Obamas look forward to...
I am so happy to be pushing the Tike Tech City X3 through these crowds. The seat sits up high.

And the push is as smooth as butter fingers, and just as delicious. The rear shocks on the 12" air tires make this a snickers sweet ride.
Yikes, it's a witch, and she's after my toes! Pull down the canopy, hurry!

The City X3 feels enclosed enough to make SP 2.0 feel safe, from other-worldly encounters.

It even has little mesh pockets inside, for a little guy to stash his rabbit's foot, or lucky penny, or just a sippy cup.
The thickly padded handle is height adjustable, and very comfortable. And if your candy hand is sticky, no worries. You can just push it with two fingertips, thanks to what the company calls the "IFD" (independent frame damping) and "QAT" (quick adjustable tracking. )
The 14" wide seat is comfy, if you want to take a break from gathering candy to watch "Nightmare before Christmas."
And it has a deep recline. So its a nice bed, if you are far from home, and need to sleep. And if you need to throw it in the car, just pull up the side safety catch, and the two triggers under the handle.
Not only does it have the function, it also has the form. This is one good-looking stroller. And it costs less than most of it's kith and kin. No tricks here, just a treat. The Tike Tech CityX3 is royally deserving of my "5 Crown Royal Ranking."
