– the complete Urbini Omni Plus Travel System review!
YSG Rating: (3.7 / 5)
Weight: 22 lbs
The Urbini Omni Plus is a super affordable travel system that combines the Urbini Omni Plus stroller and the Urbini Sonti infant car seat. It is super affordable at just under $200 compared to most travel systems on the market.
It is a newborn/toddler stroller that can be used from the birth of your child till they are much older – up to 6 years old. It is an everyday stroller that has all the features you’d hope to have in your stroller – large basket, parent cup holder, multi-position recline, and reversible seat.
The stroller is quite nice because it provides you with up to three options to ride it. First – you can carry your newborn/infant using the Sonti car seat. Second – you can transform the stroller seat into a bassinet to also carry your newborn (an alternative to the car seat). And lastly, you can use the stroller seat once your baby is older.
In terms of features, the stroller is quite great. The only issue is in its quality. The stroller is quite flimsy and the infant car seat is quite small with not enough padding around which can be uncomfortable for your baby. The stroller is also quite heavy at more than 30 lbs. Which along with its plastic wheels makes it quite hard to maneuver. A lot of parents also had a similar feedback which contributes to the lower rating for the Urbini Omni Plus.
As an alternative, I’d recommend the Graco NimbleLite Travel System instead. It is also super affordable, and includes all the features you’d get with the Urbini Omni Plus, but with better quality.
It has better fabric quality, a tray with cup holder and also includes an infant car seat for your newborn:

Omni Plus Travel System Features
Bassinet Stroller: As a travel system, the Omni Plus already includes a car seat. But in addition to this, it also includes a bassinet. This gives you even more options/ways of riding the stroller.
Newborn Stroller: By replacing the stroller seat with either the car seat or a bassinet, you can convert the Omni plus into a newborn stroller. This gives you two nice options for carrying your newborn aboard the stroller.
Reversible Seat: The Omni plus stroller seat can be adjusted to be either forward or backwards facing. You can have your kid facing you or facing outwards during the ride.
Multi-Position Recline: In addition, the stroller seat is able to recline into multiple positions. With this feature, your kid can either sit up straight, lay back for a nap.
5-Point Harness: Lastly, in terms of safety, the stroller seat also has a 5-point harness system that helps to keep your baby safely strapped to the stroller seat.
Adjustable Handlebar: Another cool feature of the Omni Plus stroller is it’s adjustable handlebar. This allows you to adjust the handlebar to a more convenient height for you. A too high or too low handlebar can be quite uncomfortable and take a toll on your shoulders and back. So it is always great to have an adjustable handlebar. And this is also great for tall and short couples, as either parent can handle the stroller at comfortable heights.
Storage Basket: This stroller also includes a decent-sized storage basket to carry your on-the-go items. You can carry items like diapers, toys, or snacks for your trips!
Extendable Stroller Canopy: the stroller includes a large extendable canopy that helps provide enough shade for your baby. Great for really sunny days as it provides a lot of cover.
Child’s Weight: Weighing up to 22 lbs, the stroller is able to carry up to 50 lbs of child’s weight. And with the car seat, you can carry a max. of 35 lbs.
Urbini Omni Plus Travel System reviews
While the Omni Plus includes a lot of great features, we still need to look at the Pros and Cons. During my review, there were a few Cons which you don’t notice till you actually have to use the stroller, so here is a quick overview of the Pros and Cons for the Omni Plus Travel System.
- Newborn stroller: you can carry your newborn aboard the stroller using the car seat or bassinet option
- Adjustable handlebar : the handlebar can be adjusted to fit the height of a tall or short parent.
- Reversible seat: the stroller seat can be adjusted to be either forward or backwards facing.
- Not so easy to maneuver
- Car seat is hard and does not have enough padding
- Can be quite heavy for smaller parents
In terms of feedback and reviews from parents who purchased and used the stroller, there were quite a number of negative feedback which unfortunately makes the Omni Plus not the beat travel system recommendation. Here is a quick overview of the Likes and Dislikes parents had about the Omni Plus
A lot of parents had issues with the steering. With the weight of your baby on the stroller, it becomes quite difficult to steer and make turns. Which is quite horrible to have with a stroller. In addition, parents complained about the wheels getting stuck and hard to adjust. These faults are quite hard to overlook with a stroller, making the Omni Plus not a great stroller option despite all the great features.
Therefore, based on the stroller features and parent reviews, the Omni Plus stroller gets:
Overall Rating: (3.7 / 5)
Lightweight: (3.9 / 5)
Sturdiness: (4 / 5)
Ease of Use and Maneuverability: (2.5 / 5)
Features: (4.2 / 5)
