    Default Mamas and Papas Armadillo VS Baby Jogger Citi Mini GT

    Hi everyone,

    I wanted to know if anyone would have any recommendations in regards to prams.

    I am considering between the Mamas and Papas Armadillo VS the Baby Jogger Citi Mini GT.

    It is a very hard decision. I do want to use the pram as soon as baby is born.

    Thanks

    I have the city mini Gt and absolutely love it! It's so easy to steer, even with 12+kilos + shopping in the bottom. It's good on rough ground and good when jogging. The downside of this pram is that it doesn't come with any accessories (foot muff / tray / rain cover etc).

    I don't know anything about the other pram, so I can't help with that!

    Thanks. I've heard good things about the city mini gt. The salesperson at baby's'r'us suggested the mamas and papas armadillo as it comes with everything.

    The pram is not as pretty as the city mini gt but comes with all the accessories. I suppose I would like to hear from any parents that do own one.

    I have a city mini too and absolutely love it!! It lays completely flat so is fine for a NB; so easy to steer and fold (both one handed); the sun shade going an extra bit further is also a great feature IMO.
    I've never worried about the "extras" as I just use blankets when it's cold and I don't go out for long in the rain (the extra bit of the hood helps for quick dashes).
    Sorry I don't know anything about the other pram.

    I have the double city mini gt (twins) and love it. It is so easy to fold and the tyres are fantastic for going anywhere. We live on a farm and it has been super hardy and goes everywhere.
    For newborns in winter I bought Valco cocoons to slip inside. They were about $50 each and were great.
