From all the reviews I had read on the internet, I held Chicco in quite high ranks in terms of producing the some of the best baby products. However, when I purchased this stroller I was extremely disappointed. It is a super lightweight stroller (the reason I bought it in the first place) and it comes with good accessories such as a fleece liner, footmuff and rain cover. However, the material is very thin, the basket is hard to access and quite small, the rubber/foamy handle covers come away from the tip of the handles and my stroller in particular has a squeaking problem with the wheels not long after purchase. Recently, I have also noticed that some of the material at the sides is frayed and the straps are quite long even when at the shortest adjustment which doesn''t seem very safe to me. Despite all of that, it is very easy to collapse and set up.
I got this at a much reduced price of £32 and I have to say, for that it represents very good value for money. It came with a raincover and footmuff included, which themselves could have cost the same as the pushchair. My ten month old son seems comfortable in it and has done since we purchased it when he was six months old. The seat is lightly padded and he is able to sleep in it. A big plus for me is that the seat reclines to several different positions. It does not, however, recline to fully flat, so would not be suitable for a younger baby. The hood provides a good amount of shade and cover from rain, and is removable. The shopping basket is quite large, although is difficult to access when the seat is reclined. I wouldn't say it is a delight to push around in comparison to our travel system, but it is fine for occasional use, shopping trips, holidays etc. The biggest downside to the pushachair is that it can be difficult to fold. The lever seems to stick and it can take a lot of force to get it to work.
I found this stroller to be good value for your money. It folds easily but only fits diagonally into a fiesta car boot. The soft handle covers are good for your hands as they stop them from getting sore after long periods of use. The reclining poistions allow a child to sleep comfortably when you are walking with it in the stroller. The only problem is you cannot use the shopping basket while the child is asleep as the back rests on top of the basket. The good sized wheels make it easy to push even with a heavy child in it. A footmuff and rain cover are available to purchase seperately and I would recommend that you do so as it lets you use the stroller in all weather types. You just need to remove the muff when folding the stroller as it restricts the fold action and you cannot clip it closed. This is a good buy for £45 or below.
i had loads of prams for my son and we tried this one i have to say i didnt like it its quite low handl height the hood is really brittle and the cosy toes dont stay up too well!my son looked absolutely huge in it its not got much seating space and the frame was just not very strong at all they are cheap enough but i would rather buy something a little more expensive than have to buy 2 cheap ones it folds up nice and small but the cosy toes does get in the way if you fold it with it still attatched its not a very wide buggy so ideal if you only have a small car but at the same time you need a small child to put in one lol i wouldnt ever buy one again i suppose its ideal for travelling but not everyday use and certainly not as your child grows bigger
