Baby Jogger® City Series Child Tray
Before buying this accessory my daughter didn't seem as comfortable in our City Mini. She enjoys sitting straight up and holding on to the tray while kicking her feet. I'm so glad I purchased this because now it's obvious that she enjoys riding around in her stroller and picking up her snacks on her own.

Could be great if not for major design flaws
When my daughter was about 1 1/2 I decided to buy this prior to a trip to FL. I read all the bad reviews but knew i needed something that could hold a drink and snacks. Pros: the plastic is sturdy and the cup holder is deep enough for tall sippies. It clicks onto the accessory mounting bracket very securely. I never feel like it could break and i even use it as a carry handle. It can be easily removed and washed in the sink.
Cons: The tray sits too high and too close to the child. My daughter is average height at almost 2 years old but it sits at her chest. If the tray wasnt so close then kids could reach out but instead she has to paw around for her cheerios at an awkward angle. I guess the designers thought if it stuck out any further then it wouldnt look asthetically pleasing. I rather it sticks out than have to have her seat fully reclined so that she can sit further away from the tray. Maybe a tray that telescopes out and up depending on the child's size would remedy the problem.
For the price and since you have to buy it separately, baby jogger needs to redesign this tray. The snack tray and belly bar are our only options. Not fair.

Great to distract your child
Fill with snacks and children stay amused while we are out and about. This is an absolute must have.

nice to have, but..
I'm happy to have have a tray for my stroller, but I find the latch very difficult to open. I usually need two hands, which is not ideal while juggling multiple kids.

This tray works best for an older/taller child as it attaches rather high. It is convenient for snacks or in place of a high chair when out and about. It is simple to swing open to let child in or out. Kids can even scoot out underneath without opening. I am concerned that a child could break tray off by applying weight to tray when it is swung open. I personally only use it occasionally. It isn't a piece that I leave on all the time due to it's height and the delicate swinging action. Great to have for the occasional, personal table space though. I originally got it thinking that it would work instead of the belly bar - I recommend that you don't get it for that reason! It really doesn't do dual duty.

Works like a charm!
Excellent add on to an excellent stroller! fits Sippy cups extremely well and folds open so there's no attaching and reattaching when the child is in or out of the stroller!

can't be used for city mini gt model without hassl
I needed this tray in the worst way and had previously used the same type of tray but different model on my city select with great success. but upon buying the city mini GT model, found out that i had to buy the double belly bar in order to insert just one tray. i have a 2 1/2 year old and an infant which would not need a tray or belly bar at this point. that is more money that i or anyone else i'm sure would want to spend unnecessarily

I like the child tray and it looked durable. However, the plastic broke on us when the stroller fell out of our car (just one time). So my husband and I were frustrated to see that the plastic that we thought was durable couldn't hold up to one fall. Needless to say, we want our son to have this tray to put his drink and snacks in when he gets a little older, so we are going to buy another one. If the new one breaks on us, then we are done and will not buy another one! We are also going to buy the bellyband now and I'm hoping that the bellyband will hold up to everyday use and we will only use the child tray if we are going on a long walk and he will be in his stroller for a long time.
