When our obaby buggy buckled under daily use we needed a buggy that our 2yr old would see out his buggy career in.The Hauk sport smoke was our choice and so far-6months on- its caused us no probs at all and is pretty sturdy and easy to maneuver still. Enough space under the buggy for a bag of shopping and easy to put down when the little 1 falls asleep. Would recommend this model.
Over the years we have had many pushchairs and buggies as you can imagine with four children and this was one of them,
After having a travel system which was quite heavy I wanted something light weight that would be easy to get in and out of the car, light to push and manover and could be used around the town for shopping.
The hauck sport is advertised as being very light and manoeuvrable, I have had buggy's that are a lot lighter than this and have been a lot sturdier as this when turning felt like the frame was bending on you rather than turning with you.
It is supposed to be the ideal shopping pushchair but as it doesn't fold up very small it does restrict what else you can put in your boot with it so no good if you need to fit a lot of shopping in. it advertises as having a big basket but it cant hold much to be honest and nothing heavy either
The Sport has a one hand reclining backrest and 5-position adjustable leg rest which is good for a younger child who falls to sleep when you are shopping but does make manovering the buggy harder as the weight is cantered differently.
It has a five-point harness but then so do all the buggies I have had.
A Steel tube frame is used for lightness but after a few months of use with a 1-year-old child this started to bend and lean to one side so wasn't as good as it sounded,
Removable front bar was not useful as I removed this for easy access and folding of the buggy and never put it back on
The cover is removable and can be washed by hand which is good as ours used to get messy with food
It was easy to assemble when we got it as all we had to do was put the wheels on it and it is available in lots of colours but there are much better pushchairs out there for the sum of £100 so I would steer clear of this one
With my little one sleeping at his grandparents sometimes on a weekly basis, it made sense to get a pram for when he is there as packing up our pram in the car boot for the sake of one night became tedious and really irritating.
The Hauk Sport was on offer in Asda for £25, my mother in law purchased it and it is now used for when my son sleeps at their (his grandparents) house. Not one to sound ungrateful, i didn't complain. After all, i had no problem with it as i wasn't pushing it and as long as my sons comfy that is my main priority.
When the in-laws went away on holiday we was left with the duty of feeding there cat, it was at this point i used the pram. I will start with the positives, as although i wouldn't buy this product myself it is fit for purpose and fine if you are on a low budget as it is a lot better then most other low budget prams. The seating area for the baby is well padded, the bar across the front is great for making sure baby is secure- especially when sat up. It has a really big basket underneath, which you can store plenty of shopping in. There is also a tray on the handle bar which has various compartments for drinks and a compartment that i presume is for small change etc.
Now for the negatives, my son was 14 months old and the pram was extremely hard to push or manoeuvre. To turn the wheels i couldn't simply turn the pram, i had to lift it using the bars so the back wheels lifted from the ground- then turn it. The frame itself is very thin, it does look kind of tacky too- i know i sound awful saying this as it was bought for my son, but I'm not ungrateful to the fact they bought him a pram. Just this particular pram doesn't meet the basic standards of a pram for everyday use. The design and colours aren't too bad, blue isn't the colour pram i would personally choose but i can't complain considering. One big irritation i had when i used this buggy was it had no foot muff, i allso understand there is no option to purchase a matching one seperate- i hate just using blankets as my little boy is forever kicking them off, but i had no choice on this occasion.
Overall i would not recommend this pram to anyone else, its difficult to use and poorly made. If you however need a temporary pram and use it for the same purpose we do then its not bad value considering.
When we decided it was time to get a new buggy we looked through the Argos catalogue and seen this hauck sport buggy and got it for about £25 -30 and thought it looked good but we were rather disappointed! There are good points to the buggy but we ended up going out and buying yet another buggy and keeping this one at my mums and only using it every now and again.
It came with a rain cover which I thought was ok and fitted well. I particularly liked the cup holders which were along the top of the buggy between the handles but they only fitted certain sizes of bottles/cans. There is also a child tray which sits across the front of the buggy for children's juice or snacks to sit on which is a good size and can come off easily. The backrest of the seat can be adjusted so that your child is either sitting up right or lying back and the leg rest can also be adjusted. There is a safety harness to secure children into the seat and the straps can be adjusted to suit your child so that they fit properly. Under the buggy is a shopping basket which can be used to store the rain cover and some shopping but not a lot as it does not seem to sturdy! So I usually only put light products in it such as bread!
A major problem which we had with this buggy is that although it is light in weight when we were out walks with our son in it we found it difficult to tilt the buggy to get up and down kerbs so when we were crossing a road it was not ideal as we could not get off the road quickly if a car started coming. Another problem is that the break is a long bar which goes across the back of the buggy behind the wheels and every time we took a step our feet would hit off the break and sometimes even put the breaks on so you would be walking along and suddenly walk into the buggy because the break had been hit on! A good point is that it folds up easily and takes up very little room so is great if putting into a car or if you have little space in your house to keep it up.
I would not recommend this buggy as although it is a good price it does not deliver what I would expect from a good buggy!
Warning - do not buy this pram!
My gran bought this pram for my son when he was 1yr old to give us a change from the heavier pram and all i can say is you certainly get what you pay for with it!
Asda run a baby event i believe twice a year and this pram is on offer at £25 at this time. Sound too good to be true? Well actually it is!
For the 1st few days this pram was ideal. It was put together by my mum very quickly and looked great but that is where the good points end im afraid. The pram itself came with the under basket for your shopping, a tray on top for mum and a rain cover so we assumed we were getting a bargain at £25
Bar for mums juice
extremely squeeky wheels - no kidding you could hear us before we even got anywhere
juice spilt - the bar on top for mums juice well the area was a weird shape so unless you had a weird bottle or can it kept falling out which is no good when you are rushing about
the rain cover - very poorly manufactured and had torn within 3days
hood of pram - this had torn within a week and the material around it had become frayed and damaged
basket underneath - i had some nappies & wipes underneath i bought it boots, not majorly heavy yet the side of the basket kept buckling
All in all i would not recommend this pram to anyone and would strongly urge you to ignore the "bargain" and save up for a better pram that will last longer. Needless to say this went in the bin!
Having used a heavy, difficult to handle three wheeler costing a small fortune which nearly cost a trip to the doctor to dismantle, the Hauck Sport Stroller is a dream. Lightweight, folds and takes up little room, fits in the car boots easily. It is of good quality, comfortable for baby and handles well. We would definitely recommend it. And won't damage your bank account either.
Don't Waste Your Money.Would not buy another Hauck product - very bad design which you only find when you take it out to use it so can't return it as it is then used. The handles are inline with the rear wheels so when you walk you kick the brake bar so you have to walk with your arms outstretched, also you have to stop & put your weight over the handles to lift up the front to get up onto pavements, etc you can't raise the front wheels as you walk. All this makes it very difficult to push.Mine had 1 trip to school & back and I won't be using it again.
Looked like a good buggy but creaks a lot
Suitable from birth. Hauck sport buggy is a lightweight compact buggy with lots of features. A parent tray for drinks etc, large shopping basket, fold back hood, fixed or swivel wheels, multi position lie back.
