The Expedition Stroller for You!
The Baby Trend Expedition Jogger is an all-terrain stroller, known for its pneumatic bicycle-style 16” rear tyre and 12” front swivel tyre.
Do you love the outdoors a lot? Perhaps, you enjoy a beautiful day at the beach? The Baby Trend Expedition Jogger gives you the freedom to go on any expedition you desire with your little one without a problem.
This stroller is one of the most comfortable jogging strollers available on the market with its multi-position, reclining padded seat, 5-point safety harness and completely adjustable tether straps. The large canopy adjusts to block the sun and the wind with its covered sunroof ratchets. You can easily convert it to a travel system by replacing the child tray with a car seat, and it will sit securely in the stroller.
The parent tray is so practical in that the storage compartment covers so that nothing falls out as you jog. There’s more! The handle is extra full with foam-padded, ergonomic grips, reflectors on the footrest and you can fold the stroller into a compact unit simply by pressing a trigger. There is just so much this stroller has to offer for all your errands and expeditions.

The Baby Trend Expedition Jogger is jogger that allows you be yourself and is ideal for every terrain from beach sands to dirt roads to paved grounds. It moves well on every terrain.
This jogger is on the lower end compared to other joggers in its category. It also has an excellent build and is easy to manoeuvre. Another thing we appreciate about this stroller is that it is easy to collapse into a compact unit with just a trigger. We like that there are reflectors on the footrest for low-light visibility. The multi-position, reclining seat is so comfy for your cute little one with its extra padding. It easily converts into a travel system by attaching a car seat. The storage basket is large. The handle is ample with foam-padded, ergonomic grips.
We Don’t Like
The durability of this jogger is a bit disappointing. First, the tyres go flat very quickly and easily and need frequent pumping. Second, the seats may wear out quickly. However, this jogger is still worth its investment.
Children require guidance and sympathy far more than instruction.

Lockable Front Swivel Wheel
The front wheel locks for jogging and rolling in the sand. The swivel wheel also allows for easy manoeuvring. It can be used on all terrains. So going to the beach, park, zoo or mall is a breeze with this stroller.
Compact and Easy Fold
It can fold into a small unit with just a trigger. The tyres release quickly to fold into a compact unit for storage or transportation.
Multi-position, Reclining Seat
This stroller features a multi-position, reclining padded seat for your cute little one for a very comfortable ride regardless of the terrain you’re riding on. This chair comes with a 5-point safety harness and completely adjustable tether strap for added security.
Results You Will Get
This stroller is ideal for long walks in the park, at the zoo or on the beach which gives your baby an opportunity to explore the outside world. You get the chance to spend quality time with your child as you can go for long walks and expeditions.
At the time of writing this review, there were a total of 798 customer reviews and 308 answered questions on Amazon for the stroller with an average rating of 4.5 stars. Customers loved this stroller for its large canopy and basket, great price, easy manoeuvrability and quick and easy assembly. A customer talking wrote specifically about the tyres of this stroller saying “The bicycle tires on this stroller make a huge difference in how easy it is to push my 18 month old son – especially while jogging. I have put over 50 miles on this stroller and have no complaints”.
Pros vs Cons
It is very suitable for jogging and rolling in the sand by locking the front swivel wheel.
It is compact and folds easily with just a trigger.
The tyres release quickly to fold into a compact unit for storage or transportation.
This stroller features a padded multi-position, recliningseat.
The tyres may deflate easily, but that can be taken care of easily with a bicycle air pump.
The jogger may not last as much as you would like. However, for the period of usage, you would enjoy this stroller.
If you decide that the Baby Trend Expedition is not for you, there are a lot of other options out there. Try the Baby Trend Rocket as an alternative, as it has similar features and an exceptional reputation, or the BOB Revolution FLEX.
The stroller is a favourite for its all-terrain versatility and easy manoeuvrability, but it is less than perfect and does have a few drawbacks in this regard.
Want more good news? There is a 6-month manufacturer’s warranty on this jogger and Baby Trend will even cover shipping costs if it is production defect. You can get this baby delivered to you overnight from most stores and available at many physical and online stores.
This stroller certainly offers much more than its value in price. I would personally recommend you get yourself the Baby Trend Expedition Jogger.
