Advantages: all the feature,price,from birth,smoothness of ride,colours the list goes on
Disadvantages: the netted basket
I bought this stroller as my daughters travel system one went up the spout and we needed one ASAP! We bought when she was 14 months and she is now 21 months and we still use it!
There are two in the range 'tutti frutti' for girls and 'Aruba' for boys, they both cost £49.99 from Argos although they were £69.99 in the old catalogue, the price varies a lot and on the mamas and papas website it is slightly more expensive.
The 'Tutti Frutti' version is a lovely bright pink colour with a wave and dotted pattern in white, green and pink (useful colour when we are always asked if she is a boy or a girl).
*** Overall Sats***
-5 point safety harness
-shopping basket (no good to man not beast)
-adjustable leg rest
-lockable front wheels
the handles are covered in rubber and have grips on.
They say the max weight for this stroller is 15 kg so as my little lady is dinky for her age it is lasting us. It is suitable from birth as it lies flat and it is multi recline, it has a drawstring mechanism to lie it back and sit it up, although this is easy enough to use once you get the hang of it.
The basket like i said is useless as it is one of the netted ones which wont hold anything although because it has 2 handles i put my shopping on them and ive never had the problem of the stroller tipping due to weight on the handles.
*** How it performed***
Taking it out of the box i was slightly dubious as because it was cheap i was not expecting much. I first noticed that when folded up it was small enough to fit in the boot of our car with shopping which is always a good thing!!
It is easy to lock it when folded down as a piece of plastic hooks over a bit of metal holding it there, when you need to open it you just flick the plastic bit off all very easy.
It has a little zip up pocket just under the two handles which you can easily fit your phone, purse etc in, I found this very useful as i didn't have to put my handbag on the handles and have to keep it open.
I put my daughter in it to sort out the straps and noticed that as they weren't placed very high they didn't dig into her legs or make her nappy bulge but fitted nicely against her tummy, I also moved the leg rest and foot rest so she didn't have to have her knees under the chin.
It was easy to fold down and also put up you can do it one handed, great when you have a child in the other hand, all you have to do is shake it so it opens out.
I found that the ride was smooth and she wasn't bumped around everywhere and just sat there watching the world go by and seemed happy in there and promptly fell asleep.
It comes with a rain cover which attaches with poppers and is easy to put on and remove, it only covers the seating area so its not covering the whole thing.
Overall this is a brilliant stroller for an amazing price and would recommend it to anyone looking for a new one, it has all the features you need and doesn't cost the earth to buy. If they sorted the whole netted basket thing out it would be perfect.It does'nt feel heavy to push and as it has lockable wheels it is easy to get around places and is also good on bumpy,grassy land.
Summary: highly recommened cheap stroller that looks and works like its more expensive.
