View Full Version : Beema Q Jogger
I am looking for a new pram and babyco has reccommened the Beema Q jogger (as they would).
Does anyone else have this pram? if so would you buy it again?? Also i am curious to know if toddlers are keen on the skateboard attchment, as i am a little scared of the toddler seats, not sure they are totally safe.

I bought the previous beema jogger before the Q was released. I was a little dissappointed as they didnt tell me about the Q model coming out and the Q is about 3 kilos lighter. Overall I am fairly happy wityh it. Has all the features and if you plan on doing a bit of walking its great. Just have a good look around at other brands[one regret as I didnt do this, got a bit excited and purchased it straight away :o ]
maybe try a baby bunting store, as I find staff at Babyco do tend to push their own brand without giving a good comparision with others on the market.
Good Luck. :)
My only concern with the skateboard is if your tpoddler is tired they may not want to stand up? Planning my second so would be interested on any feedback you get on that one.
I have a Beema too and love it. I don't have to lift it though, I think it's quite heavy. We do quite a bit of walking (I don't drive) and the under basket is huge, one of the reasons we chose it. We also didn't really look around that much - we got everything from Babyco and and got a baby swing for free as part of the package deal thing.
I don't know about the toddler attachments, I didn't even know you could get them for the Beema. I'd probably go for a seat arrangement, I'd be concerned about a tired toddler on the skateboard thing too (however cute they look :p )
firstly I want to agree that it is light, and that the basket is gigantic (one of the reasons we bought ours), also the turning circle is great!
We also bought the bassinet.
However our particular pram (no idea if its others too) the harness is WAY too loose for a baby or even most toddlers. We've complained and complained to babyco and we're in the process of sending an official safety hazard report in to the government because babyco are being rude and unhelpful.
Perhaps it is just our pram but I'd check with a real baby if I were you before purchasing.
also you can get much better prams with proper suspension systems for much the same $$$ - we have no footpaths near our home and the thing is so bumpy!!!

That is so true about the harness. Its huge.
At first I thought it was because our son was born a bit on the small size but he has caught up and now at 10mths and in the upright position its still at the smallest point. What were they thinking.... :rolleyes:
we have just bought the Beema Q for our first baby (due in October). We bought it because Choice magazine recently did a review of 3 wheeled joggers and the Beema Q was found to be the best buy, passed all the safety and durability tests and was given good reviews by all of the parents who tested it for their trial (seems weird that it would pass the safety test if the harness is too big -that's a worry). We bought the bassinet that goes with it because it was half price (that was last week anyway). We obviously haven't used it yet (it is still in it's box) but I am hoping that it will be good. The only concern I have at this point is that the carry handles on the bassinet seem really flimsy and too long -I think I am going to try and change them. Anyway I had read some good review before we bought it (there's one on the review section of this website) so hope we have made the right choice.
Actually our harness is way too big and Eloise is about 15 months! I've been unclipping and doing it cross your heart way for a while - seems a bit more secure. I never even thought about complaining to Babyco :confused: .
We bought the bassinet attachment too and found it very handy, and yes, the handles are flimsy but we really didn't need to carry it much, just off the pram and into the cot. She slept in it (inside the cot) for about 3 or 4 months.
