    I have only used this with the carry cot and car seat but I love using this travel system. It is easy to use, easy to fold up, lightweight and looks good too. My baby loves the carry cot part of the system and happily sleeps in there.

    I've been using this pushchair for the last 4 weeks with my newborn using the carrycot attachment. So far I cannot fault this product. While I was shopping trying to find the perfect pram one thing I noticed a lot of prams where big and bulky. I'm only 5ft 4 and 9 st so a big bulky pram to get in and out of the car wasn't viable so with this one being light weight was perfect. Although it's light
    weight it hasn't compromised on the quality or sturdiness. You can flip it down and unfold it single handed so its perfect when your getting in and out of the car. It is also easy to steer I'm yet to take it on public transport but I doubt I will have any difficulty.

    WOW!
    The Mamas and Papas Flip Xt2 is quite possibly my favourite Mamas and Papas purchase yet! We've used it since birth with the carry cot and with the car seat attachments and we're still using it now with the seat it's self. My little boy always looks comfortable and has plenty of room in it.
    As a parent, a big basket underneath is a huge plus and this one ticks all the boxes!
    My favourite feature of the XT2 is the one handed fold... A lifesaver if you've got little one in your arms!
    Would recommend time and time again!

    Brilliant pushchair, easy to use and can fold whilst holding baby. Sometimes is harder to fold Especially if using footmuff. Very spacious and good value for money.
  • 3.50/5

    • Value for money
    The pushchair is good value for money and is compact and folds easily with the pushchair folding in with the frame. The folding is easily done compared to other pushchairs tested.
    The cons outweigh the pros we found. The leather coating on the pushchair handle and carrycot handle started rubbing off within a couple of uses without heavy duty use or knocks which was very disappointing.

    Love this little stroller! Great little run around for quick trips out and about. Very lightweight and easy too steer, folds down very compact with the seat on also which is a bonus! Con is that it doesn’t sit up as far as would like so little one holds his head up a lot but we use this a spare at grandparents so all in all great stroller!

    We live this pram. After having a mamas and papas pram for our eldest we were sure we were going to get another. This folds so neatly and fits in the boot of my Aygo. Baby sleeps well in it and I can do a decent shop and put it in the basket.
  • 4.63/5
    • Strengths:

      Folds well and fits into the car well

    I really like the pushchair, particularly the carry cot attachment and used this in the house instead of a Moses basket.
    The car seat attachments are handy for quick stops to the shops when baby is asleep rather than getting her out of her car seat.
    We have just started using the pushchair as baby has outgrown the carry cot. I was unsure of it at first but we’ve now got the footmuff and it looks much more comfortable now.
    We will be keeping the system for baby number two.

    We purchased this in a package with the carry cot, car seat, adapters and rain cover. I can use the Prams on my own and fold it to go in my car boot without any problem. It folds compact enough to fit in my hatchback along with a full weekly shop. It’s perfect for around town, I’ve taken it on a bumpy canal towpath and it survived but I wouldn’t class it as an off-road pram. My son has just about outgrown the carry cot at 2 months so not the best for tall babies! I love the fact it can be folded in parent facing. The basket is big enough to hold a few small bags, although it’s a bit difficult to access with the carry cot. All in all a great pram for every day use

    This pram was bought as a bundle with carrycot and car seat, nearly one year on it is still in amazing condition and still works like the first day we bought it. It is really easy to steer and can be done easily with one hand. The pram folds down really easy and small, the seat also folds with it so no need to take apart first like most others. The seat has 3 recline positions with a lie flat position perfect for on the go nap times and for younger babies. My son loves being in it, it is well cushioned and comfortable and is still like new. Really happy with my purchase and would definitely buy again and would recommend it!

    This mamas and papas flip pram is amazing from carrycot to pram. Takes one hand to fold the pram flat, this is so convenient when trying to get it into the car. The pram seat is large so will fit your child until 3-4 years and will still be ok as feet wouldn’t be touching the end. The luxury footmuff is amazingly warm in the winter months as it is fleece and cosy material.
    The only complaint I have with this pram is that it doesn’t always steer correctly in a straight line and sometimes goes the other way

      Has a big seat, massive hood and folds compactly as one

    I love this pram, we brought it as a spare for our holiday as I wanted a pram that folded as one when parent facing and something with a big hood. I have not been disappointed and much prefer this to our original travel system.
    The seat unit is really big so accommodates our tall child with lots of room to grow. The hood comes down to more or less completely cover the pram, this was really important when on holiday and in the sun at home as I knew he was covered. It seems really comfortable and my son is very happy in it.
    It can also be parent or world facing, this is handy as they get older. The other thing that sold this pram to me is that it folds as one when the seat is facing either way. It is a very easy fold and it is really compact when folded, unlike most others.
    I would highly recommend this pram.

    I have been using this buggy for the last 11 months and it has been great. Easy to steer and I can fold away and open one handed whilst holding baby. We have had the carrycot attachment and attaching and removing this is extremely easy also. It’s still a little heavy after a c section but was still one of the lightest buggies I tested out. Would definitely recommend.
  • 4.50/5
    • Strengths:

    We used this pram for the first 8 weeks after baby was born, there is nothing wrong with this pram you do need a bigger boot for the carry cot and chassis, and the breaks aren't the best, also it is not the easiest pram to set up. But the comfort and ease of this product to steer make this an amazing buy for the price. We still use this product as a back up/spare for when baby is with other family and will be used when baby can stay around family members homes for the night. Also, my sister loved it so much she will be using it when she finally gets to have the baby she so wants!

    We purchased this as a bundle deal which worked out amazing value for money direct from mamas and papas. I loved how easy it was to fold one handed and that you could put the car sea directly onto the frame with adaptors if baby was asleep in the car. The carry cot was such a fantastic accessory with the hard bottom meaning that you didn’t need to disturb baby if they fell asleep around peoples houses. However we did find that our son grew out of the carry cot quite quickly.
    We have just started using the next stage seat unit which when forward facing can be folded still attached to the frame. This seemed so much easier compared to taking all the components off the frame before folding and storing in the car. The seat unit lies completely flat for sleeping and the hood is extra big which was perfect for the sunny weather. The only negative point is the system felt quite bulky and heavy when all together which can be inconvenient when trying to get the pushchair in and out of the car with a clingy baby. However it has been perfect for what we needed it for and I wouldn’t strongly recommend this system to any of my friends or family.

    I absolutely love this pram.
    Incrediblely easy to fold and very compact. Would fit in most car boots easily (unsure about cars like fiat500, classic mini though).
    Ligntweight to lift and easy to steer. I am a self confessed weakling and have had no issues with this pram at all.
    Beautiful classic design with matching accessories available.
    Built quality and engineering is exceptional.
    Huge basket- can fit a weekly shop in it much to the annoyance of everyone behind me at the checkout.
    In my eyes very little to be negative about.

    I’ve had two of these one for my second and one for my third and love it. For me it tickles every box, easy fold, compact, large basket, world and parent facing, lightweight and stylish. Honestly love every part of it! As mentioned above occasionally I do catch the leather handle on the floor when folding however I’ve just learnt to tAke more care. Don’t hesitate to buy it’s amazing.

    I bought this pram for my son and has lasted him up to 2 and a half years, due to the size of the seat. Although it has lasted to fit him, it does have some flaws. I do not use the pram an awful lot as my son walks a lot, however the leather handle has started to come away and has a few rips in. For the price of the pram it could be sustainable for long periods of use. Also, having looked at other prams I noticed there isn't a lot of support for when they are a little younger and I always found my son was slouching or slipping down whilst being in the seat. Apart from a few flaws, the pram is easy to fold, fits well in the car, is pretty easy to push with the exception of good suspension, if you want a pram to last for a long period of time it is definitely worth researching more about them.
  • 4.63/5
    • Strengths:

      Easy to fold down compact and can last the child a good few years

      Basket not easy to get into with the bassinet attached

    • Value for money
    We purchased the full travel system in the Black Friday sales last year as it was half price so the value for us was excellent as it can go from newborn until she is old enough to not need the pushchair anymore. The actual frame itself is very easy to fold down and lies flat for the car boot. We especially like the easy attachments for the bassinet and the car chair it makes life so much easier. The basket underneath is ver big however when you have the bassinet on it is quite difficult to get larger items in. It is very easy to steer and has a fixed wheel lock making it easy to push back and forth when rocking a baby to sleep. The only downside is there isn’t much suspension on the frame but if you are just going along normal pavements it isn’t an issue.

    I bought this as a replacement for an icandy strawberry but it’s got a very plastic and unsturdy feel to it. I sent it back to the shop and got another pushchair. I think it’s good for it’s price range but I felt that it would easily break if used daily

    I absolutely love this pram. It ticks all the boxes for us. It's relatively lightweight and compact when folded, fits in my small car boot. There is a knack to folding and unfolding but once practiced this becomes easy and it can be done one handed whilst holding your baby when necessary.

    It's lie flat and suitable for use from birth, we got it as part of an offer which included the carycot however I've only ever used this on the pram a handful of times as I find it much easier to take out in the car in pushchair form, I wouldn't pay extra for the carycot as you really don't need it, the pushchair itself is so good. My baby finds it comfortable and is happy in it too. The seat can be parent facing or world facing and it can be folded in either set up unlike some other prams we looked at.

    The pram is solid and the wheels are chunky and handle off road surfaces such as grass and tracks well so far, the only time my daughter has seemed to find it uncomfortable was on cobbles.

    The brake is flip flop friendly too, which is great.

    It was an expensive item even in the sale, however it looks like it will be the only pram/pushchair we need and looks solid enough to last subsequent children too.

    We have it it chestnut, which I think is a nice practical colour and looks very smart.
