The The First Years Ignite is part of the stroller
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, traditional stroller
models like the Ignite are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
Ease of use:
Ease of use is based primarily on ease of using and adjusting the safety harness, folding and unfolding, adjusting backrest, lifting and carrying, engaging wheel brakes and car seat removal and installation (only for compatible strollers).
Maneuverability is assessed by trained staffers on how well the strollers maneuvered S-turns through cones, narrow sections, grass, dirt trails, uphill, downhill and curbs while walking.
Safety is assessed by testing for compliance with the most current version of the standard, ASTM F833-13, and stability and usage tests designed by Consumers Union.

Features & Specs - The First Years Ignite
5-pt harness Five-point harness secures child firmly. Unlike a three-point harness, it secures the upper body.
Suitable for 6 mos. and under Suitability for babies 6 months and younger means the stroller could include a safety flap at the child's feet so he or she doesn't slip out of a large leg hole, or some other means of containing a child of this age. Even with this added feature, the harness should still be used.
Suitable for 6 mos. and under
