    I love this pushchair, modern looking, and I am a big fan of one handle rather than two.

    Very easy to put up and down with one hand, also really easy to push with one hand! Nice big hood and lays completely flat for baby to sleep!

    Also great for older toddler, my 2.5 year old still fits in comfortably.

    This pram is really sturdy and easy to push. It has a large seat which was bigger enough to temporarily accommodate our 5 year old after her abdominal surgery. It lies flat has an ok sized basket. Putting it up and down is a doodle it is fairly compact as it fits in a Kia Rio. The hood provides good coverage and the seat is well padded

    Borrowed this pram off a friend for a week or so to trial before buying a light weight pram. It’s a really nice looking pram, light (compared to my icandy), so easy to fold and has a peek hole/panel to see baby/child. It has a fantastic hood and it comes down fully to cover baby.
    It lies completely flat which is great when lo falls asleep.
    My lo didn’t quite sit up enough, she likes to be pretty upright, she slouched in it.
    All in all a nice pram, great looking and great to fold, although it did take up quite a bit of room still in my big boot (Ford Focus).
    Not for me simply because I didn’t feel it handles very well, even if you lock the wheels in.

    I really love this pushchair, so much so that I’ve had two in the past (sold my first one on when I was finished with it, then bought a new one for my second baby) & I’ll probably buy another one when my third baby is a little older. I love the way the seat lays entirely flat, and the size of the seat is very generous so will last much longer than other pushchairs. It’s a fantastic pushchair to travel with as with the correct adapters you can fit certain infant car seats onto the frame without needing to remove the seat like you need to on most travel systems. (I use a maxi cosi pebble) we used ours several times to travel to Spain, which meant we didn’t need to hire a car seat with the rental car so works perfectly. I’d say it’s only downfalls are the way the seat doesn’t sit completely upright, but it’s never caused a major issue, and that when you fold it you need to have both hands free as the wheels can get themselves stuck/in the way of it standing freely once folded how it’s supposed to.

    Lovely buggy bought direct from Mamas and Papas in their Southampton store. Sturdy, well made design. Nice colour fabric. Lies flat for newborn. One handed fold. Folds quite compactly, fits in our Peugeot 206 3 door hatchback car boot easily.

    Great buggy for the price, very spacious, ideal for the car, really compact when folded down. Only down fall, if going down a curb and your front wheels are to close to curb it does intend to tip.

    Lovely pushchair, got this as a second pushchair for my little boy. Really easy to manoeuvre and folding up with one hand is great! Easy to clean, only issue i found was my little boy soon grew out of it when he turned 2 and a half . Otherwise great pushchair.

    I bought this pushchair to keep at my mums house for when she had my little one. Since then she now has 2 grandchildren! The seat is very large and still comfortably fits my 2.8 year old. My 3 month old has also been using it in lay flat mode. Both get on really well with the pushchair and having the viewing window means we can keep an eye on them whilst the hood is fully over them.
    The yellow colour we went for does attract bugs and I probably wouldn't choose this colour again. The fold is compact and it has a nice handle to carry it.
    The one handed fold is easy to use, not too heavy either.
    A fab all round pushchair, would highly recommend

    Ive had this stroller for a number of years, i first purchased it for my son in the multi coloured fabric and bow use it for my baby daughter. I love the all round look and feel and definitely the easability of use. We purchased this to use primarily as a holiday stroller and haven't been disappointed. The sunshade is much larger than umbrella strollers and provides fantastic shade, we didn't need to bother with the faff of a parasol which is always a bonus, it also has a little peep window so you can check on baby! The seat is wider than most other strollers and lays nice a flat, my children have both sleep really well in it. Folds with one hand and in one piece, perfect for travelling abroad. The storage basket beneath the seat is soft mesh stretchy fabric which holds quite a lot. We had a full stroller system which was more or less made redundant when we bought this. I have since recommended it to my friends, 2 of which have purchased and loved it the same as us. Overall great stroller and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

    This is one of 3 buggy’s I own and by far my favourite. It’s easy to push, fold and carry so much so even my 9 year old can do it. My daughter loves being in it too so it must be comfy as she’s a fiercely independent 2 year old who doesn’t do anything she doesn’t want to 🤣

    Got this for going on holiday as it could be taken as hand luggage so we didn't have to wait for pram to be unloaded. Only downside was the wheel was faulty and kept sticking.

    Love this wide seated pushchair. So comfortable and padded and provides comfort and room for my 3 year old. The hood is a great size with viewing window. It's very sturdy and easy to fold and open. Upright position isn't completely up right

    I bought this pushchair when my daughter was two. She is very tall for her age and this was a brilliant buy. There was plenty of room in it, it was very sturdy, and folded down great to fit easily in the back of my Corsa. We used this for over a year and I have now packed away in my attic for when my youngest grows out of her current pushchair! I also convinced my sister and close friend into buying this pushchair and both of them love it too!

    I bought this for my 14month old to use as I no longer needed all the hassle of a travel system. It’s easy to get in and out the car, and to put up and down. Mine is the navy edition with tan handle. I think it looks very smart and stylish for girls and boys. It fits easily in the boot of my car and is lightweight. My daughter likes sitting in it, it’s very padded and comfy. Included rain cover and cup holder. I bought the footmuff separately.

    Generally good quality however it is a little bit of hard work to push, however it might just be me as I am used to the ease of pushing my travel system.
    I love how easy it is to fold and unfold it and how small it is, it would definitely be good for people with small cars.
    I am not too keen on the visual design of as the hood looks slightly messy but it isn’t a major problem.
    My son seemed comfortable in it, I especially loved that he could lay flat during the nap.
    I prefer parent facing prams as they let me interact with my baby and I can keep an eye on them, especially they both gets snacks but I would recommend it for someone who wants compact and easy to use buggy with quite large shopping basket :)

    I bought this for my baby after previously loving mamas and papas, looks lovely, lies flat and folds up small enough to fit in my tiny car, only downfall is the steering is very stiff.

      It’s small, great to fit into small boots, easy to fold, and easy use.

    • Weaknesses:

      I wanted to wash the hood and it comes off the gram but not off the poles, which I was gutted about.

    I have the armadillo city 2 which is the same size as this just a newer one and I think these pushchairs are great. Maybe the price could be a little lower but I brought the Mothercare’s version of this and I had so many problems the frame was bent I took it back then the break kept sticking on so buying this mamas and papas which is the original version is a lot better. And also I was after a small pushchair that I could fit into my mini one car as well, didn’t want to keep folding the seats down and this fits perfectly in the boot without pushing my seats down nor taking my parcel shelf out. Great all round :)
