not so heavy easy to fold down worth the money

Louarna Dent

I severely dislike this pram. Takes up so much room in the car boot. Hard to fold down, heavy to lift, hard to steer in reverse option.... Never should have bought it :(

I was a bit skeptical after reading reviews of this pram on another website (wish I knew bub hub had a review section before hand!!) I am very please with this pram. DD sleeps in it day and night and she looks comfortable. 

Steering is a bit hard when in reverse but you get used to it.

Shame there isn't a cup holder. 

The pram is a bit bulky and does take up a lot of room in the boot but it is light enough to lift in & out. 

Perfect height while in bed to lift Bubs out. The front bar can clip on & off so that makes getting Bubs easier! Especially for those late night feeds!

Very sturdy pram and I'm glad we got this one!

We got this pram second hand and at first I wasn't too sure about it. It
is bulky and takes up alot of room in the boot. 

We decided it was better as a house pram. 

I had a csection with DS1 and he spent the first 2 weeks sleeping in the pram beside our bed. it was the perfect height for being able to get him out without straining anything. 

The seat lays right back and very flat so it was basically the size of basinette 

It's nice being able to do reverse steering but because the front wheels don't move on their own it is very tempermental which meant while out walking we would easily go off track. 

We still use it as a house pram/spare pram but have another for walking and car trips.

I got this second-hand pram from my SIL and decided to use it as it was still in good shape. Im a small person and so the pram is kind of too big for my liking but my DD looks really comfortable in it and thats whats important to me. I always use it in reverse handle which took some getting used to and does take up a lot of room in the boot but its still pretty easy to lift in and out so I guess I cant complain. My main problem is no cup holder as I drink a lot of coffee but Ive learnt to steer it with one hand even in reverse.

I bought this stroller when I was in my third trimester prior to reading any review about it. It was on sale in Target for $199. I have used it for 7 months, 3 weeks now and I can say it is value for money. I didnt want to spend too much but at the same time wanted something good. it lays back completely, and is well padded, so good for use from when bub is a newbie. It has three layback positions and has a reverse handle option so bub can face you. The first couple of times I used it in the reverse handle position, it was abit difficult to steer but  ever since and to date i use it in reverse handle position and its not been a bother at all...it just takes getting used too. The storage basket underneath is large  and will take a good amount of groceries. Its wheels are sturdy and the stroller is easy to clean.

It is not so heavy but is also not the lightest stroller on the market. I have not yet started driving yet and I can find i can use it on the bus cos its a bit heavy...in addition to carrying a 7 month old. And it takes up a bit of boot space also...like 40% of a standard sedan boot space.

It comes with a boot cover, very handy in the winter months...though you have to get a rain cover seperately if you so desire. 

Thats it...good value for money.

to start off with, i've never used this pram for a little baby, so never reversed the handle.  great pram, easy to use, fairly manoeuvrable, has a flat seat and front bar (which is great for baby to sit up with), a nice wide sunshade, and a large storage basket.

I agree that the pram is hard to steer in reverse mode - but much easier to steer in forward facing mode.  Very easy to change positions from fully reclined to sitting up - can do with 1 hand whilst baby in pram.  lots of storage space underneath.  I have found that it is very hardy and well wearing.  It was one of the lightest prams on the market.  Very easy to collapse and store - takes up much less space than other prams on the market.  Has narrower wheel base than other prams which is important if trying to get through shopping aisles etc
