Mockingbird Stroller Review – Everything You Need to Know

Sharing is caring!

 

Looking for a luxury stroller without the luxury cost? You need to find out more about the Mockingbird stroller! I hae an in-depth Mockingbird Stroller review for you today, so you can decide if it’s the right stroller for you. If you’re debating between this stroller and an UPPAbaby stroller, this is the post to help you decide!

When there are babies around, there is lots of equipment.  No matter if you’re pregnant, adopting, doing foster care, babysitting, or even a grandparent, there are some pieces of equipment that are really helpful.  But as you begin looking, there are SO many options and it can be overwhelming making a choice on what’s necessary and what isn’t. 

However, one of the top items almost everyone needs is a stroller.  So the best thing to do is start researching.  Make a list of what your top must-have features are and then start looking for stroller options that match. 

We’ve shared a variety of stroller reviews on the blog because we know that when you’re choosing a stroller, it’s important to get the right one! Today, we’re bringing you a new one with this Mockingbird Stroller review.

Mockingbird Stroller Review

The Mockingbird Stroller is a single-seat, multi-function, modular stroller that’s designed for maximum versatility.  And we’re excited to share all that we learned about it when we tested one out.

Mockingbird Stroller Review - Why You Need This Stroller!

From The Box

I loved the way the Mockingbird Stroller was packaged in the box.  Upon opening, right on top was a large envelope with the instructions.  So, no digging around looking for them. And, I was thrilled to find that the stroller came packaged in a bag and then the box. 

Our box was slightly damaged in one area and the bag also got a tear.  Thankfully, the stroller inside was in perfect condition thanks to the precautions taken in packaging!

Assembly of the Mockingbird Stroller

The assembly of our Mockingbird Stroller was really easy.  I always get nervous about putting things together but it took my 12-year-old and me less than 10 minutes from unboxing till we were done.  It ws so easy!

We did follow along in the directions, but it basically consisted of unfolding the stroller, attaching the front and back wheels and canopy, and clipping on the bumper bar.  So easy and quick!

See the Mockingbird Stroller In Action

We’ve got a comprehensive video review if you want to see everything in action.  Make sure you watch all the way till the end where our 7-year-old folds the stroller!  The Mockingbird Stroller features an easy, one hand fold (although Sam did use his second hand to help keep steady.)

Mockingbird Stroller Features – Point By Point

We’re going to touch on the features, point by point, as we all know how important these aspects are to strollers.  Great features can truly make or break whether you’re going to love your new stroller or not.  But rest assured that the Mockingbird Stroller does come with some great ones!

Stroller Seat

I love how lightweight the seat and frame of this stroller is.  It’s also quite comfortable and accommodating for different ages, stages, and preferences of the child.

This seat’s one-hand functions include multi-position recline and child bar release.  The connected harness makes it easy to get your little one in and out, while durable nylon is a breeze for cleanup.  The multiple seat recline options are available in both seat directions.  So whether you have your child facing you or facing out, the seat can easily accommodate the desired recline.

Plus, this stroller can easily switch between forward-facing and parent-facing modes, and interchange with a car seat or carriage.  (Bonus:  They offer an adapter that makes the Mockingbird stroller compatible with most commonly used car seats.)

Mockingbird Stroller Footrest

While we were going for our walk, we noticed just how important the adjustable footrest is.  baby Levi spit out his nuk pacifier, but instead of it falling to the ground, the footrest caught it.  So I’m a big fan of the adjustable footrest.

Buckle Harness

The harness features a single push-button release which operates with a firm, but gentle press of the thumb.  To buckle, each clasp needs to be pushed into the center buckle clasp.

Peekaboo Window

The Mockingbird Stroller is designed with a dual purpose peekaboo window.  It’s a mesh lining so it allows for additional airflow but it also for easy access to checking on baby.  And I love that they designed it with a magnetic closure so it’s almost sound-less.  (No loud velcro to wake baby when peeking in to check on them!)

Vent Pannel & Canopy

The UPF 50+ all-weather canopy is full coverage and extends to about where the bumper bar is.  It’s easy to operate and opens and closes with little effort.  And the high contrast black-and-white patterns on the canopy interior are designed to promote early childhood visual development (plus they’re cute, too!)

On the back end of the seat canopy, there’s a zippered vent panel.  Just unzip and open to allow for fresh air to flow through.

Additional Coverage

I also love the fact that the Mockingbird Stroller comes with an additional sun protection attachment.  Featuring magnets sewn at the top, loops to hook on the sides, and an elastic bottom, it easily fits over the stroller and helps protect from the elements and pests.  It’s also a great privacy shade.  But the best feature it that if you look up close, you can see inside really well, which makes checking on baby really easy!  (***Works in both forward and rear-facing modes.)

Adjustable Handlebar

If you’ve pushed a stroller before, you probably already know how important the correct handle height is.  But the problem with stationary handles is that they are only ‘good’ for one specific height.  So with my Mockingbird Stroller Review, I’m happy to report that there are 5 height options with this great stroller!

 Tires

This Mockingbird Stroller Review wouldn’t be complete without mentioning tires.  These go-anywhere tires offer a smooth ride similar to air filled tires, but without the possibility of a flat.  And since the front tires can be locked for pushing on rough terrain, you’ll be able to go almost anywhere.

Brakes

Easy to use, this one-step foot brake even passes the sandals test.

I also wanted to note that Mockingbird has tested their brake mechanisms on both flat and inclined surfaces. They have also assessed the strength and stability of their wheels, even spinning them against sandpaper for miles on end to guarantee they’ll stand the test of time.

Color Options

Probably not the MOST important thing when looking for a stroller but important none-the-less.  Because nobody wants to push around a stroller they loathe the colors of.  At this time, the stroller can come in a variety of options.  While the main part stays black, the sunshade, windowpane, and leather have options.  I love how all the color and style options are sleek, sophisticated, and beautiful.  You truly can’t go wrong with the Mockingbird Stroller.

Love this review! Question— is the bassinet worth it if the seat reclines? Wondering if the seat will be too big for a newborn or if i should still get the bassinet?

Hi Alexa,

I don't have the bassinet but, personally, I feel like it's just a preference and not a necessity. The seat reclines quite nicely and I tend to baby-wear my newborns so the recline is adequate enough for our family. I think an infant seat insert is a more price-friendly option but if you really want the bassinet, go for it. :)

I wanted to love this stroller but it has been a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT to say the least. I received a defective stroller as the canopy does not attach to the stroller. This is a major safety hazard for a little baby and we CANNOT use this stroller. I haven't used it once, it is still in the box it came in, completely brand new. I wanted to talk to someone and tried contacting customer service several times but they don't pick up their phones.

As a new mom with a newborn baby in a pandemic with no help, this is the last thing I wanted to worry about. It has honestly been the MOST HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE to go through during a time that is already so difficult for us. We had many choices when it came to choosing a stroller and we chose Mockingbird as we believed in their story, their mission and the product. We even took the leap to buy the double stroller in case we planned to have another child in the future because we had so much faith in the product. Needless to say, we were naïve and feel scammed and punished. We are out $400 with no stroller for our baby. I really wish I could turn back time and I would have made a very different decision about my baby's stroller. I don't wish this nightmare upon any new mother.

I’m sorry to hear this happened. Any update? This is disappointing to hear as I’m seriously debating between this stroller and Uppababy who I’ve heard has great customer service.

I know a car seat can be used with the adapter but does anyone know if the car seat can be both forward and rear facing like the seat that comes with the stroller?

Nikki

I have the car seat adapter and the car seat can only face you.

Hello! Has anyone else had issues with customer service and shipping when ordering the Mockingbird stroller? My mom ordered 2, one for me and one for my sister in law who are both due this fall, and she hadn't received any communication since she ordered 3 weeks ago. She reached out via email and they responded via text to the phone number in her signature, which I thought was very odd and a bit unprofessional. They haven't responded to her text since she sent them her order number.

Hi Carrie,

Did she purchase from their website directly? Or a 3rd party seller? I'd have her try calling them directly: 646.933.1290
