Maxi Cosi Mura 3 Pushchair
Advantages: To many to list
Most people when you hear "Maxi Cosi" will often think of the well known company that makes award winning car seats not pushchairs. I was surprised when I first see who made them. I did not think they did pushchair ranges. Though today they have quite a few well known ones such as streety range and Loola and Loola up ranges.
What you will get with the package.
This depends quite a bit on what type of package you buy. As there is quite a few package with car seats and carrycots and foot muff and bags and all of that together Just the pushchair package you will get --
1 x Maxi Cosi Mura 3 seat unit and frame and hood,3 x wheels.1 x pump.1 x rain cover.Instructions.
The seat unit is and always has remind me of a car seat when on the frame with out the hood on. The fabric almost feels like cotton to the touch and springs back as you take baby out. It's almost like a memory foam matters it's the same sort of principle as that. Making the seat unit very comfy for long and short trips out. The 5 point harness makes it very secure for your little one. Though the thing I had the most problem with when I 1st started to use it was the 5 point harness. You need to put both clips together then clip them into the bottom one. It's really easy once you do get the hang off it.
The hood can be used in two different ways. The 1st being as the seat is up. The hood just sits over the seat unit with a tiny flap that goes at the back of the seat unit. The 2nd being when the seat unit is lying back the hood then does not fit. Though tucked away very neatly in the flap of the hood is a thinner liner made of fabric that zips all the way around so keep baby from the elements, This also goes right under the seat unit and can be clipped on both sides of the seat unit.
The frame is made of steel but it's not as heavy once the wheels and seat unit are off. You can put this down with the seat unit on but the seat has to be facing outwards for you to do this. Folding the pushchair is quite hard at 1st as you need to push down and then it folds into it's self. The wheels also come off making it really quite compact when folded.
The handle is very easy to adjust as there is a clip / button in the middle of the handle that just pushes up or down.
The wheels all 3 are air tyres and will need pumping up around once a month to keep them hard. Again this also depends on usage. I used mine everyday and only had do mine around once a month. The whole time I was using also I never got a puncture which was great and I did not really avoid sharp objects either. All 3 tyres come off for cleaning and storing which is great. They are also easy to come off with a push of the button.
The Cross bar / T - bar was one of the things that made me buy this one. It makes this one very safe there is no way a child can pull it off. The bar clips down nicely and then there is a toggle underneath the pushchair that the bar attaches too. Making this probably one of the safest pushchairs on the market today. The bar is also long enough so your child can not lean either way or over the top off it. The bar is also covered in black foam making it soft enough for little ones.
The rain cover is also another good point. The rain cover covers the whole pushchair seat unit but this one has a zip over the hood making this very easy to get into a baby or child if they need your attention. It's also great for showers as well as it means you don't need to take the whole thing off and put it on again whist your out as all you need to do is unzip the rain cover and it sits their nicely.
Price & Where to buy.
We brought ours from Kiddicare.com when it was on sale and a brilliant bargain it was at £129. Though that was about a year and a half ago. Sadly like many of the sale items it did not last long. Though kiddicare.com still sell this today at £289 or around that. As far as I no and I could be wrong there is only 2 colours you can buy now and that is Tango red and black. You would be able get the discontinued colours of the maxi cosi mura 3 and 4 on Ebay and would be a lot cheaper.
We brought the matching changing bag to go with it for around £30 I think. The changing bag has been cleverly designed to fit into the basket very neatly. You can also but a soft and hard carrycot and also foot muff and car seats. You do get the carrycot and car seat adaptors with the pushchair.
I should not think I am the only parent to say this but as soon as I buy a new pushchair I make my self a pact that I would not let my daughter eat in it. Yep last around 5 minutes I would say. The maxi cosi mura 3 I think is the easier pushchair I've had to keep clean and machine wash it all. I love the way the seat unit just pulls off the frame. Then once that has been done it's only a matter of unclipping a few pop buttons and sliding off the seat unit. Making it really easy to put in the washer to clean. I did mine on a 30 degree wash as I do with everything. Maxi cosi recommend you don't use bleach either through the washer or sponge cleaning as this may dis colour the fabric. Maxi cosi also recommends you don't tumble dry it either. Though at room temp it really does not take long to dry. You would of thought it would being so thick. The same with sponge cleaning it takes no time at all to dry.
What my daughter and I thought.
As you can see from picture below she had no problems at tall going to sleep in it. The pushchair was a dream to push and going around corners. The pushchair was also a dream going over lumps and bumps on paths and also kerbs because of the all around suspension. The main reason why I never wanted a three wheel pushchair was, a couple of them I have had in the past for my other 2 kids sometimes tipped and was quite hard to push around corners. It was the same for going over lumps and dips and kerbs. If court wrong the pushchairs went to tip to one side. This pushchair though has never done that. Your child would not even know they where going over a lump or bump.
Like I said up above I've never really had hardly any problems only getting around a few smaller shops that I don't really go into weekly so not really causing much problems. I really cant find anything else bad to say about it. Though if I was really nit picking and I mean nit picking then the hood could have been a bit more sturdier but really does not cause much problems either. I also loved the handle height of this pushchair. Being 5ft 8 tall this was perfect height without giving me back ache after being out with it. Brilliant idea for small and tall people a like.
The pushchair for me was one of the best I have owned and only got rid of mine because I have this weird fetish.
I also found this great for my daughter as she had serve reflux when she's was younger meaning that you could not settle her most of the times due to her being in so much discomfort. As this does not lay really flat it was great and meaning she was not as sick as she would have been laying in her moses basket.
Age range from birth to a 3 to 4 yr old. 15 kgs.
