    I've been using the Joie Versatrax pushchair for a couple of weeks now and my overall impression is mainly positive. There are many features which I like about this pushchair but then there are some points which I just personally don't like. 

    The main positive being that the seat folds down with the frame (not like my previous pushchair). I also like that the seat can be either parent or world facing when folded. There is no changing the chair around when folding, saving time when loading everything back in the car. The Versatrax fits down one half of the boot, leaving space down the other side for the shopping.

    Secondly, the basket- It is huge! It is nice and deep with higher sides, meaning i feel confident when loading it up knowing nothing can fall out. There is also enough space to access the basket from both the front and back, even when the seat is fully reclined. I also like the addition of a zipped compartment and drinks bottle holder at the back of the basket. Perfect to store my car keys and phone whilst out.

    The feel- The whole pushchair feels high quality a well built. It feels as though it is nice and robust which will last a good few years.

    Even though there are many positive points to this pushchair, there are a few points which I simply can't get used to. 

    Firstly the robust design comes at a price in the way that the pushchair is very heavy! This in turn makes the steering difficult and near on impossible to push one handed. It often feels like the front wheels get locked and don't swivel freely like my previous pushchair did. It's such an effort to get the pushchair to go in the direction you wish it to go in. 

    Secondly when using the Maxi Cosi pebble on the chassis it is in such a reclined position. This is fine when my baby is asleep, but if say he is asleep when we arrive somewhere, but then wakes later on. I find my baby is constantly trying to sit forward. I then find myself trying to find things to put behind his back to sit him forward a little. I thought this was just the Maxi Cosi car seats, but when I was in my local Mothercare this afternoon I mentioned this to the manager who tried the Joie own car seats which are approved for the Versatrax. These were just as reclined as the Maxi Cosi was. Either the adapters need to be altered to sit the seat forward a little or separate adapters need to be provided. 

    Other points I feel could be improved are:

    The bumper bar is really far forward. It's more a leg rest as my baby can't reach it with his hands. Perhaps when he is older it will be better placed.

    The wheel base is very wide. This can make it difficult when shopping in small, tight shops. 

    It could do with a clip to keep the chassis held together when folded, as occasionally when lifting in the car it has started to open when lifting it. 

    Overall I do like the Joie Versatrax but the maneuvrability is the biggest turn off about this pushchair for me. As a whole I'd give this pushchair 3 out of 5 stars.

    What a beauty! I'm absolutely in love with this pram. The colour options are gorgeous and differ from the usual primary or children's colours which gives it a lovely professional but also neutral feel. There are so many fantastic features for me to rave about, I'm not sure where to start. Unboxing was so easy and putting the pram together was definitely one of the easiest baby products I've had to put together, it took around 5 minutes to get from boxed to ready to ride, which I was very impressed with. I also love how easy it it to swap seats around, with a simple action on the sides you just lift and swap, no having to multi task your arms and fingers to get the seat off, it's an absolute dream. Once the full seat is in position, it sits baby up perfectly and lays them right back where my little angel slept like a baby and was cuddled by the soft quality fabric inside. I was tempted to join her but I'm a little too big. I cannot tell you how excited I was with the handy cup holder that works brilliantly, it fits everything from my travel mug to my Daughters flask and babys bottle. This is definitely a feature I wouldn't be without now. In previous prams I've used, I always find the basket underneath to be roomy but I struggle to get in and find what I'm looking for. With this pram there is so much room in the basket i was able to place things in reach and access easily while on the move and the extra zip pouch and popper pocket is a fantastic addition, you don't really realise its there unless you look hard which meant my phone and purse were both safely secure and very easy for me to access without people knowing they are there. The wheels are completely solid and unlike previous prams that tend to wander, this strolled perfectly on all sorts of terrain. The tyres are almost silent when on the move which I love. Now I get to putting the pram down, it's so simple it's unreal. My friend had to struggle with hers, take the pram apart and then fold it down which took up most of my boot... However with the Versatrax I simply lean the seat all the way forward and pull the strap in the middle, done. The pram folds almost flat and the handle bar clicks into place to secure so you can stand it up for easy storage. I cannot tell you enough how impressed I am with this pram. Definitely worth a stroll and I highly recommend it.

    This travel system is just perfect for both babies and toddlers eliminating the need to buy a different pushchair further down the line.
    The carrycot is soft and comes with a good quality mattress, its a really good size and im confident it will last a growing baby for 6 months as opposed to the 4 months that previous prams have lasted us. The hood and apron provide good coverage for baby and the handy pocket in the carrycot is perfect for storing small items.
    The seat unit is durable and super easy to switch between parent and world facing. My 3 year old daughter is well within its 22kg weight limit but she is taller than average, whilst her head does sit at the top of the seat, especially when the hood is pulled over she certainly hasn't outgrown it yet and is perfectly comfortable. Given that she usually prefers to walk everywhere now its certainly spacious enough for her now and again use. It can seem heavy up and down pavements with a 3 year old but i would expect this and it isn't an issue with smaller children.
    The extendable hood, seat fabrics, bumper bar, handlebar etc all look and feel very luxurious. The basket is massive! Easily fitting my daughters backpack, coat, wellies and raincover with room to spare. The hidden pocket is also handy for small essentials.
    The fold is very similar to our litetrax which is great, its not often a travel system can fold with the seat unit remaining in place which is really handy and it folds easily and compact. Once folded it holds itself together without the use of a clip which makes unfolding that little bit easier and its light enough to carry and lift.
    It comes with separate rain covers for the carrycot and seat unit, both fit well and are made of flexible plastic meaning the fold away neatly.
    Adaptors are included to attach the carrycot which allow you to attach a variety of car seats, we use the cabriofix and whilst babies shouldnt be in their car seats for long periods, its handy being able to clip it on for the school run from the car when its raining!
    My only tiny niggle with this travel system is the lack of footmuff, which most travel systems seem to include, however, i would compare this in quality and function to much more expensive brands and given the price of the Versatrax, its not a big deal to have to buy it separately.
    Overall, the best travel system we have used and the only one we will need from now on!

    First off I was very pleased to have been chosen to test this, I was extremely happy with how how easy it was to fold down and how little space it takes up in the boot. The basket space is plenty big enough, a very good size, I love the fact a drink holder comes with it unlike most brands you have to purchase separately. I like how high the handlebars go I like to have them on the highest setting on my own pram. It's light enough to be carried one handed with the carry handle which is good if you're constantly putting it down and having to carry it on public transport etc.
