For young mothers, strollers often mean freedom. Yes, you have to unfold it and strap your kiddo in---but you can walk around the neighborhood, to the park, or along a nature pathway. If you have the right stroller, you can even begin an exercise routine to get back in the swing of things. The point here is that strollers are important, so when it comes to picking one out, you definitely want to go in with eyes wide open.Today we're going to be comparing two great strollers: the Nuna Tavo (compatible with the Nuna Pipa carseat), and the Baby Jogger City Mini GT. We feel like these two strollers are apt companions with many similar features. Like any comparison of our products, we back them both up (otherwise we wouldn't sell them), but here are some thoughts to help you make the right choice for you.
The Nuna Tavo
The Nuna Tavo was made for convenience sake. Nuna itself is a company focused on making products that make parenting easier while still letting you enjoy elements of style in your baby's gear. This particular stroller also offers quick unfolding and room to grow from infant up to 50 pounds. All around, it's a great transition stroller that is the ideal mate for the Nuna Pipa carseat!

What It Comes Down To
As you can see, the two strollers have much in common: the one-handed folding capabilities and dimensions are similar. While the GT costs a little more than the Nuna, I would say that you still get all the "bang" for your buck. Adjustable handlebars and all-terrain wheels are features that make you glad you bought this stroller, and not something different. In addition, the GT holds children up to 65 pounds, which is an increase from the Nuna Tavo. The one downside of the Baby Jogger City Mini GT is this: it does require an additional piece for carseat compatibility, unlike the automatic transfer you get from carseat to stroller with the Nuna Tavo.
Still, my take is this: if you already own a Nuna Pipa carseat, of course opt for the Nuna Tavo. You won't be disappointed in its ease of use, size, or price. But, if you have a Britax, Chicco, or Maxi Cosi carseat, I'd opt for the Baby Jogger City Mini GT for optimal comfort, usability, and value. You will require another piece to transfer with most carseats, but it transfers with at least 7 different brands of carseats, so you've got options!
