Love N Care Europa Stroller
I purchased the Europa around 2 1/2 Years ago.
I knew I was going to have another child when I purchsed it so was preparing to have to use it as a double.
I use the Europa purely as a shopping centre pram, it gets little use really as I go shopping once a fortnight.
Within weeks I noticed:
- The toddler seat buckle is almost impossible to do up
- The toddler seat is very hard to remove
- It is not pregnancy friendly as the way it folds out is just ridiculous and does not help look after the pram.
First of all within a few months the
- Fabric started to come apart
- The back wheel pins became faulty and the wheels fell off in the middle of coles while i was using it
No drink holders but there are pockets on the basket. However you cant use the basket with the 2nd seat on
Unfortunatly at $650 its a purchase ive had to live with. I thought dropping down in price wouldnt be this rough as at the time the other doubles were up in the $1000 mark - given the problems ive had this pram I would have prefered to spend more and get a better quality pram.
There is almost nothing I like about this pram. Yes I love the seat underneath but its not unique and it is poorly made. It also does not recline or have a very long back so do not expect your child to sleep in it.
The other problem too is the heaviest child has to go in the front - a baby cannot use the toddler seat.
If you put the toddler seat on top then the baby goes under and I think its too poorly ventilated for that - Its also secured by straps so it sways when you walk and ive had a few moments where my bub has got pram sickness!
Technically this pram has not lasted even ONE baby as its had so many repairs.
I would NEVER buy a Europa again.
