Mountain Buggy Urban Jungle
I bought this pram after doing a fair bit of research and going in with a clear idea of what I wanted to use my pram for.
I was after a sturdy pram with blow up tyres that I could do a lot of walking/running with that was also suitable from birth.
The Mount Buggy Urgan Jungle ticked all my boxes and was a reasonable price. It's good for doing lots of walking, I walk maybe 5-10km a day and it's holding up great. I have the bassinet attachment for my newborn and it's nice and stable and she's very comfortable in it.
It is however, very wide and won't fit through some supermarket checkouts and I do hit some doors when going through. It also folds very long and you need a big boot if you're going to be packing it in your car. This isn't a huge issue for me as I leave it set up at home simply for walking and use my carrier when I'm out and about, but would be very annoying if you wanted to take your pram when you were driving.
It has a very easy steer (can steer one handed), very smooth ride, adjustable handle which is great for Dads, ok storage basket, tyres are very easy to blow up, bassinet attachment is great, brakes are comviniently located and very secure.
In all, I am very happy with this pram for every day walking, but wouldn't purchase if I was going to take it out unless I had a large SUV style boot of the car.
I love this pram. I've had two now as my first one was destroyed in a car accident. I purchased the same model pram to replace it as I was so impressed with the first one.
- 3 wheels, easy to manouvere one handed. Sturdy and great for difficult terrain!
- The seat reclines with straps so you are not locked in to certain positions.
- Love the handle bar, it's sturdy and can be adjusted to a variety of heights.
- The hood moves forward so that you can quickly get to bub if you need to without stopping and walking around to the front.
- The seat can't face towards you.
- The seat is at a slight recline when in the most upper position which my son does not like.
- Accessories are expensive additions.
Overall my husband and I love this pram. We use it most days on our walks around home (no footpaths) and also in Sydney CBD. It rocks both worlds :)
I love my Urban Jungle!
It so light and easy to move - i can use it one handed easily.
We bought the bassinette for it so it was comfortable for bubs from birth. Now she is a bit bigger she loves sitting up! So if you can afford the bassinette - i think it is definitely worth it.
It collapses and opens out so easily which is great when you are trying to get in and out of the car quickly.
I really like the adjustable strap rather then having to have it at set positions. This means that we can have bub at any position comfortably.
It is a little wider then most prams but we have only had two instances where it hasn't fitted through a checkout. Haven't used it on public transport so not sure how it would go.
It is a tight squeeze to fit in the back of our 2007 Lancer but i believe that is a minor issue.
Isn't very padded but this was easily fixed with a pram liner
Shopping basket is a little small but i guess this saves me money on shopping!
I think any disadvantages are minor and i would definitely recommend this pram to anyone!
