“ Manufacturer: Britax / Type: Standard / Number of Seats: Single Seat „
I was recently given this pushchair by a friend who no longer needed it. As my son is now sitting up and I was not happy with the pushchair seat on my previous pram, I decided to give this a try.
The whole travel system including pram and carseat sells for around £300. It is perhaps not unreasonable, considering that Britax is a good brand, but I was not really impressed with the pushchair.
The frame is really huge, it is more suitable for outdoor use and people with lots of space in their house to store it. To fit the pushchair frame in our Ford Focus , we had to remove the boot covering, and then there is space for nothing else. Clearly it is not designed for travelling.
On the other hand, it rides very well and smoothly, actually feels like a little car. It is very good even on uneven ground. There are two large wheels at the back and two on each side at the front. The front wheels swivel completely and offer excellent control, they can also be locked in one position if you wish.
The folding mechanism is easy, you just pull the handle upwards on both sides. You do need to apply a degree of force to achieve this.
The handle is a bar across. Next to the handle is a holder where you can keep a cup as well as a closed box for keeping you wallet or mobile phone.
The basket underneath is also very big.
The pushchair seat feels quite hard and i feel it could use some more padding. It can go completely flat and the adjusting mechanism is easy, by holding up a lever on the back of the seat. The hood is completely detachable and there is a net-like area on top through which you can peek at your child. There is a leg rest which can be adjusted in various positions, this is a very useful feature for younger kids. There is also a plastic footrest for older kids.
The raincover that comes with the pushchair is huge and covers the entire thing, including the frame.
I feel that the carrycot that comes along with this is very small and uncomfortable. It is quite hard inside, and I doubt any newborn will find it pleasant. Thankfully, my son is six months now and I just use the pushchair.
All in all, this leaves much to be desired and I dont think I would pay the full amount to get this one new, now that I have experienced it.
I bought this pushchair after i saw on at my local baby clinic and fell in love with it.
Well i wish i hadnt of bothered.
The pushchair was big, bulky,heavy and the seat was very low down.
the seat unit was'nt very well designed at all compare to the many others i have had.there was very little padding to support a baby and no comfort to it at all once baby was moved from carrycot and put into the main pushchair seat.
the raincover ripped within a week of having the pram, the carrycot was outgrown in a matter of weeks and i didnt buy the car seat to match as we already had one.
the only good bit i found with the pram was that the bag zipped onto the hood,but even that was only a tiny bag.
such a shame considering how much you pay for this system
