    I have had this from my first born and Iv tried multiple pushchairs across the two children but this is by far one of my favourites. Its so easy to push. It feels super sturdy and it is easy to put up and down one handed. My children both seem very comfortable in there. Its lasted through both my children and im still using it with my second and its still got loads of life left.
    Iv used it on multiple terrain and its one of the best for this. The wheels dont seem phased but much. Theres good suspension so was good on rocky terrain too.
    I would definitely recommend for any first time mum. The travel system features are also fab. The car seats just click in nicely and the carrycot is the sturdiest and most well built iv seen even amongst the most expensive brands.

    After our first pram the mini uno stide braking we went to purchase a new one and instantly fell in love, we have a small car so needed someone that would fold flat and we wouldn’t have to remove the wheels and this does all of that my little girl loves it

      This buggy is very good in a cheaper branded buggy. Its easy to steer especially with one hand.

    This buggy is very good for a cheaper branded buggy, so you can feel like you have got a bargain and the same quality as a more expensive one.
    It feels like it's built well and will last for many years. It's easy to steer and you can in fact steer with 1 hand if needed.
    The downside of this product is sometimes it's a little hard to fold. And also the frame is very big so you need a bigish car for it to fit in.
  • 4.38/5
    • Strengths:

      Easy to fold, compact for a small car boot, sufficient storage space under the seat, easy to disasse

    • Weaknesses:

      Can be quite a big pushchairs with the carrycot fitted, could do with better suspension with the car

    This is a great pushchair for a first time mum, it's easy to fold and fit into a small car boots which make it easier to get out the house, it's also compatible with some car seats (I use it with the igemm) which is another plus point. I've used the pushchair with the carrycot which looks very nice when your out and about, however the pushchair is much bigger with the carrycot fitted.

    I wish the pushchair came with its own cup holder as it would make like a lot easier. It could also do with a better suspension when used with the carrycot however I think this is a great pushchair, its easy to get you out and about the house on your own, lightweight and pretty looking

    Love this pram, easy to steer and lightweight. Very good travel system for getting in and out of the car as more slimline than many other travel systems. Seat easily reclines and the foot section can be altered as they get older. Good size basket underneath. Easy to fold down and put up.

    This is a brilliant pushchair. We have used this for nearly eleven months and had no issues. Brilliant off road and can easily be pushed round the shops with a shopping basket in the other hand. The footmuff had magnets to attach to Pram, found it difficult to keep this on. Apart from footmuff had no issues, folds easily and can fit in a small car boot

    I completely love this pushchair. It’s so easy to put up and fold - very easy to store away when you live in a small place like me! The big wheels make it easy to use for walks in the park and to control the buggy. The adjustable handle is great and again, so easy to do. There is nothing strenuous about this pushchair. What you see is what you get! The Carry is nice and spacious & the car seat part is super light!

    I had my eye in this travel system for a while whilst pregnant and it does not disappoint. Quality is really good and price is amazing. It's lightweight, easy to steer and get in and out of the car. Slightly annoying that you need adapters for the car seat and it is slightly creaky but other than that it is a good all round travel system.

    Grrat that this comes as a full travel system covering birth to toddler. Very light pushchair and folds into a manageable size. Really easy to fold up with just a simple pull of two leavers on either side. Raincover and foot muff comes as standard, with a large shopping basket underneath. Brilliant for first time parents as everything is included and you don't need a degree to collapse or change it over. Additional bonus is that you can have it parent facing or world facing.
    Car seat and cot bed can easily be attached, with the travel system option and adapters included.
    Currently, on offer on the bounty app for an amazing price with many extras.

    I have mixed feeling about this pushchair, I like it because it looks good it is quite sturdy on the walks, folds down easy. What I don't like is when folded down it takes up quite a bit of space and I am not a big fan of the seat as seems like my daughter who is 20months old now is not very comfy in there and it has been like that since we bought it for her at 8 months old. Feels like she keeps sliding down and just straps holding her in and she cant relax in there unless she falls asleep and i completely lower the back of the seat.

    I love this buggy. It's the easiest buggy to fold up and down, you can do it in 2 seconds. You can use the bassinet, stroller seat or car seat (with adapters) on the frame so it can be used for a long time. It's super easy to steer, the only downside is that the back wheels sit wider than the front so it's sometimes easy to think you fit through a space but you catch the back wheels.
    Other products that have universal adapters to fit things to buggys are difficult to use on the joie frame, they do work but not always perfectly. Eg buggy boards, parasols.

    Jsed this product from day one and was very happy with it. Newborn base was
    very comfortable, soft and easy to clean.
    When we moved on to pushchair it was easy to place on the base and it was super easy to change it from front to rear facing.
    Adjustable handle was a great little feature too.

    We got this pushchair on offer at half price with the carry cot and the cat seat.
    Great value for money.
    Easy to use. Each part is easy to switch. The car seat can be bit fiddly to remove but isn't too bad. The carry cot and chair are very simple to use.
    The large basket underneath is fab!! Can fit loads in it.

    This pushchair is great. It grows with your child. I've had it since my daughter was born and she is now almost 2 and a half & still looks comfortable in it. I like the fact that you can chose which way for the child to face & how it has different recline positions. The hood is very big & so is the basket. I think the only issue would be at times the steering as can be difficult to go up curbs at times apart from this I do love this pushchair

    We only used this pram (Joie Chrome) for about 2.5 months before we decided that it wasn't built for our needs. I still feel annoyed at all the good reviews it had and mostly at myself for not fully testing it (we only pushed it around the shop for a bit).
    The biggest issue we had with this pram is that it has zero suspension. So, in my personal humble opinion, the verdict is - unless the roads around your house are as level as the shop floor then I suggest you get another pram. As a new parent, seeing your tiny baby's head bounce at every crack in the pavement is rather distressing.
    After the initial spin around the block we always used it with either a regular pillow or a Cosymorpho cushion to give a bit of extra comfort.
    Initially I felt quite smug spending half the amount other NCT couples have spent on a pram, alas, soon enough we discovered that it had a number of flaws...

    CONs:
    * By far the biggest issue - No suspension at all! Wheels are made of very hard plastic, makes it an awful ride on any surface apart from airports and shopping malls (although I believe that the Chrome DXL version has slightly better wheels. Again this is just from looking at them, not actually tested this 'theory' on the road);
    * You need a fairly large boot for transporting this pram. The carrycot doesn't fold and the chassis is quite heavy and chunky;
    * The handle is an odd shape and again made of hard plastic which means that any clips/change bag straps just end up slipping to one side; I wanted to get a cup holder but even a "universal" cup holder couldn't be fitted to this pram;
    * Carry cot is actually quite small in comparison to other prams. No way it would have lasted us until 6 months;
    * Carrycot apron is flimsy, does not provide adequate coverage. Velcro strips get worn very quickly and you need ninja skills to remove the apron without waking your baby;
    * The hood on the carrycot only comes up to about 95 degree angle; in toddler seat, when the seat is in full recline, the hood doesnt even reach to 90 degrees leaving your child rather exposed to the sun/rain/wind etc;
    * All strap pads are not actually that padded.
    But it's not all bad, this pram does have some positives...

    PROs:
    * Very big storage basket under the pram. Easily accessible when using both the carrycot and the seat;
    * Carry cot can double up as a bassinet during daytime naps;
    * The pram folds up as one piece when using the toddler seat;
    * Comes with Gemm car seat but also compatible with i-Gemm (i-Level) car seat;
    In conclusion - I personally wouldn't recommend this pram. Some could say that "it's a good pram for the price", but i would argue that for a very similar price you could get a much better pram/travel system (and we did!).
    P.S. I would like to clarify that we only really used Joie Chrome with a carrycot. We "road tested" the toddler seat once, just around our block and only in full recline, as our baby girl was too young to sit up.

    This pushchair is lightweight, folds easily, all wheels come off so it fit into our Nissan Micra! The car seat can slot on too. The seat can face both ways. For the price of this you really can’t go wrong. Only negatives would be that it feels a bit flimsy and the seat is quite flat which means my little one slipped down before she could sit on her own properly.

    I loved this pram I used it for over a year and a half with my first child. It really is built to last its sturdy and can take on nearly all terrains, the only down side is that it is a little on the heavy side its fine when just walking flat but if you constantly have to go up and down curbs you can start to feel it.
    Other than that I have no complaints, my little boy loved it, used from birth upwards, the colour(red) kept well and didn't fade like others do. I would recommend and buy this product again.

    Our joie chrome travel system was brilliant, we got it in the made colour a few years ago. It stood the test of time and lasted for 2 babies. It has travelled the country with us and been bundled in and out of numerous cars. The handle is height adjustable and extremely useful when I am so short and my partner has been tall. The fact you can have the pushchair forward or rearward facing at the click of 2 buttons is lovely, especially for days out at the zoo. The pushchair rain cover is easy to put on and covers the push chair well although my children didn't like it.
    The material is easy to clean and the frame is very durable. The long hood makes for great protection from rain and sunshine when caught in unexpected weather and the easy recline function makes the pushchair perfect for all ages.
    The big back wheels pop off making storage in the car really easy, no matter how small your car and the pushchair itself is fairly light for easy storage.
    The large wheels give good traction off road and on sand,mud etc. Really easy to steer one handed and my kids have never had any problem falling asleep in it at any age.
    I sold this travel system but now am expecting my third I am looking at purchasing this again.

    I totally love this pram. When my baby was born I leaved on the 1st floor, I had to go up through very high, concrete stairs... But with this pram it wasn't difficult at all! I detached the carrycot, took it up, and then the wheels part. It's easy to steer with just one hand and you can turn around with one move! Baby looks comfortable there, but I think the pushchair is little bit too small. It's up to 1 year old. The amortization on the back wheels is very nice, but on front wheels I don't think there is any.
